this tank needs rework ! It's freaking outdated... Doesn't stand a chance against most of the tier 8 heavies without gold... I have 1600 battles with this tank, the tank was very good 2 years ago didn't have any problems but now with all the new vehicles and reworks on other tier 8 heavies, is-6 is just BAD compared to them... And it's an 12 000 gold one, it's supposed to be good, Please rework/buff it (the gun is the problem everything else is just fine)

 

Agree with everything you said.......spot on. Don't buy unless you realise this will not be a stat padder or credit grinder....you HAVE to use gold to even remotely compete and even the 217 gold pen is meh. Preferential MM .....dream on.......tier8 and 9 every game no lies.

If it had the old MM qualities and improved 195/245 penetration instead of 175/217 then I would say give it a try.

Don't forget a lot of the new powercreeped tier 8s with 200+ standard pen shoot straight through your front like butter.

You have no shame if you are advertising this tank. I have two gun marks on it, but last six months I played maybe six games. It's unusable with new Premium T8 HTs. DO NOT BUY THIS TANK, it will save you lot of nerves if you don't. 

It would be better if you asked for money to be given to you for nothing, it would be more fair deal!

Ha ha ha ha. With the current MM????? Enjoy the 175mm of pen against countless tier 9 heavies. Or push 2 and bounce with 217mm pen shells that cost more.

The IS6 was fun once. Seeing mostly tier 8 and below. 175mm pen was adequate. Now? Take 95% HE. At least you'll do some damage.............

One of the worst T8 premiums being sold at the moment due to the atrocious MM it gets.

 

If a premium is overperforming WG pulls it from the store in a matter of hours.

If a premium is underperforming WG keeps selling it despite them knowing full well they are screwing over their playerbase.

I like premium tanks, in fact i have several of them. However i feel it is wrong to offer us is-6 for sale while NA servers can get them trough missions.

 

I do understand however NA servers are low population and you need to boost numbers by offering tanks and specials for much less or even nothing while we get them for minimum discounts.

 

It would be only fair to give us this special as well. Otherwise it just feels wrong.

Don't waste your money on Pref MM tanks.

 

http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/646277-tier-viii-of-the-week-fcm-50-t/page__pid__14850677#entry14850677

 

The main purpose of T8 premiums is to make credits but with 175 pen you have to fire full gold.

 

This tank used to see tier 6s all the time, now it almost only sees T8 & T9.

 

It's one of the most traded tanks in the trade in deals.

 

Don't waste your money on this tank.

I already have this tank :)

 

PS: I was playing with my friend on Blitz the other day who noticed that the IS-6 has another gun that you can mount after researching for 100xp and after a little research, it turns out they have removed Preferable MM and gave the tank a gun where it is more workable during tier 10 battles and so i wonder if thats what they will bring to here as well after a while and remove pref MM once and for all? 

 

Even the 8,8 cm Pak 43 Jagdtiger got a tier 9 gun you can buy.

If they will do this to all WOT premium with a crapgun, it  will really be a game changer !

IS-6 is not a good credit maker in the current meta.

Mine is just slowly rusting away in the garage... powercreep is a b****

This tank is a joke, don't buy it !

 

The premium ammo on this tank is worthless, you are being charged around 4k credits for 217 pen, which is not enough for the majority of tanks you are going to meet. 

 

Armour is meh, since all the OP premiums will pen you easily. Russian gun depression and view range is bad to say the least. 

 

As a credit maker it's very very bad, even with boosters you are better off driving let's say Tiger I, which is not a premium, but in general you'll make bigger profit then with this so called premium vehicle.

 

The thing I did was to swap all my premium shells for HE, this the only way how you can deal some damage, and you don't have to waste money for over prized, underperforming premium ammo. 

 

If you want to spend some money, I would recommend waiting for Xmas discounts on premium account and do this instead of buying something you will hate after the very first battle.

So this is why there was that cryptic message on the launcher: Tank týdne VIII. úrovně: IS-6
