This used to be a real contender, able to carry a game.

 

Helas, is has been nerved to a useless paper tank, without visibilty. All too benefit premium tanks.

 

I think it is time to look for another game.

How much? I'm halfway through the IS, if you make me a decent offer I will consider buying a second hand IS-3.

Premium tanks is the least of his issues. Age of the super heavies made many a normal tank useless. IS-3 don't stand much of a chance vs Type 4's and VK 100.01's.

 

And if you think WOT is the only game with these issues. You are rather optimistic.

I'm afraid you are absolutely right

The IS-3 is fine. Is it as powerful as it once was? Well, with the introduction of some of the newer tanks, no. Just menas you have to use 2 brain cells to drive it instead of 1. :P

 

Seriously though, it plays the same and is still a very powerful tank. If you think the IS-3 is bad, you'll be disgusted by most of tier 8.

It's not a bad tank still. It still works and can carry as top tier if need to. Just less so vs before if you have to deal with super heavies alone vs most other targets etc. So most times you have to be less aggressive vs before. Playing it like you did 3 years ago then will wreck you instantly.

I wonder where you got this from. IS3 has not been nerfed nor changed at all, and it has always been blind as a bat.

It's a HT, he not need visibility. If you are lucky to be top tier with him, you will see how bad it is. Idon't like it, but i have better results in IS-3 than in T34

When I grinded the IS-3 not too long ago, it seemed perfectly. Mobility with great gun is always nice, and the IS-3 gets great turret armor and troll hull armor to boot. To me it felt like it resisted pwoer creep quite well.

If you really think that the IS-3 is a bad tank with paper armor now, what do you think about the other heavy tanks of that tier?
