You mean 'Do you remember when KV-4 could farm IS-3's?' Yes, yes I do! Fun times

KV-4 supremacy!

 

Before folks go nuts. IS-3 was (and still is) a great tank & used to be among the best, to a point that it was the tank of choice in Teambattles (and other competitive T8 modes).

However, so many people flocked to the highly praised IS-3 that the majority of IS-3 drivers were no challenge to my mighty KV-4. But the few IS-3's that were a challenge? Oh boy, that were the scary guys, the ones who solidified the IS-3 reputation as OP tank.

It's why I didn't mind the IS-3 being strong, it still needed good play to get the most out of it & good play in other tanks nullified less good IS-3 drivers greatly.

You need to be a good player to make IS-3 work. Bad armour, slow top speed, bad dispersion and aim time.I really can't figure out how to make it work.

KV-4 feels so solid and reliable instead!

I dream the day KV-4 will recieve it's deserved buff to remove the powercreep! I cross my fingers everytime a new patch is announced! :)

I remember when IS-3 was considered among the best tier 8. I've almost researched it... a bit too late probably. Will see if I change to IS-M line...

Ye, those times where awesome.
It was before the retard line.
Before the great powercreep.
Before premium ammo became almost a neccessity.

Also, it was when the game had roughly 100k more players then now.

Was it a decent tank? Yes. Was it a good heavy? No. KV-4 as stated above is just better. A lot of other better heavies too

You mean the time the IS-3 was a great tank and the IS-6 was the go-to tier VIII premium tank? I remember that because when I got my IS-3 was exactly the same time the power creep began, and I'd be so looking forward to it. Simpler happier days.
