Object 257 to replace IS4 as new tier 10, IS4 rebalanced to tier 9.

 

The biggest problem I think with the 257 is that it will face tier 7.  A lot.  That should not happen.  At least most tier 8's have enough pen to get through.  Most tier 7's can't muster more then 230'ish pen.  With the occasional 250 HEAT for SU152/IS2(Chinese)/T34-100 and suchlike.  

A tank like the 257 with it's design is too much for tier 7's to face.

Im waiting for the st-II to replace the is-4 instead and the latter being bumped down and leading to a new branch instead.

 

oh well.

No the simplest solution would be to leave sh1t as is.

Nobody is asking for yet more ruski tier 10 tanks.

I think you missed the whole point of the change which was to create a line with the same play style.

 

But by all means move my IS-4 back where it belongs, and give it the S70 back too.  Heck, how about bringing back the old mm so I can bully tier 4 in it again.

The problem is not the tier...the problem is that stupid hull shape which should not be in the game.

Indeed. The 257 head on most tier 7's can deal with. Even the T29 can overmatch that 30mm roof plate. The side needs to be less then 70 degrees. That and the stupid hidden hitboxes behind the track to go away. Do that and it will be fine.

Even simpler. Give tier 8 tanks that have less than 200 base pen +1-2MM, all tier 9 tanks +1-1MM and all tier 10 tanks +0-1MM.

Why? Did it not exist in real life?

 

Maybe it will be better suited to tier X, time will tell.

It existed...but it should not be in the game...going side on against an enemy and having around half side auto bounce with the stupid shell dispersion in the aiming circle that it is now it's just stupid and broken.

Also...it existed in real life isn't an argument...unless you want an is-7 with autoloader capable of doing 8 rounds a minute. And we all know wg devs are a bunch of neanderthals...but not even them would put such an abomination in the game.

The devs always said the IS-7 is considered to have the automatic loading mechanism.  Which pretty much proves my point.

 

Maybe it will get pulled before release, or maybe it will prove too strong and be moved to tier X.  At the moment all I'm seeing is some drama queen streamers hyping stuff up in their usual quest for views.

There is a reason why such designs didn't make into real used tanks. Like the lack of 75cm tall crew men so they would actually fit in the tank and could operate it properly.

 

Also I would guess the tank's tracks tended to break off when it turned at any speed.
