Give it the BL-9, buff the UFP by 20mm, remove turret roof weakspot and remove the preferential MM.

 

OR

 

Buff the KV-5 instead. Now there is a relic from the past.

Tank curves show that it's fine.

 

For the first time in it's existence, IS6 is balanced.

 

IS6 drivers used to driving one of the most OP T8 tanks in game can't stand that.

I took it out this evening for the hell of it, and meeting IS3's and T-10's means a few moments of extreme impotence followed by a quick trip back to the garage.  If I am doing it wrong, please show me da way.

Both of them have recently been buffed already. Can't we just nerf all the others instead? :bajan:

Can we get a future vid on how to use the bloody thing in the game as it is right now?  Perhaps showcase the IS6 in whatever you think is its element, when facing IS3's and T-10's.

Sure. I did actually do another review of the thing in light of the MM changes and introduction of tanks like the Defender etc.

Curves show T44 got over 55WR and T34-2 52.5. Only T44 getting buff. 

Curves mean nothing. Play T44 and T34-2, and tell which tank is better, and more fitting random games. 

WZ 111, IS 6, KV 5 are not fine, those tanks dont work anymore

No, I don't fire much APCR cos it is crap (I only carry 5 rounds of it in the tank) and yes, generally I manage to pen. See the review video above. The games I have included are supposed to not be anything too special, just showcasing what the tank can do.

Yeah it's quite funny that some players also said standard pen on the SP or T32 is fine...then mention regular use of premium ammo when standard ammo isn't enough at the end of the sentence. :facepalm:

According to VBAddict, the IS-6 is 26/34 in terms of win rate among tier 8 heavies. If you compare it across the whole tier, so not just heavies, it is 63/97, rocking a 49% WR. So, nothing spectacular, but not bad enough to warrant a buff either if you ask me.

''In the light of'' and looking at the upload for your vid it was a fair bit before mm changes were introduced. How many times have you played it and how consistently meaning battle after battle. Every tank can be enjoyed for a game or two. Try using it is a primary credit maker.  I had my is6 when I was a noob. I played it like crazy and loved it. 3 marked it (not that it was an achievement) and then realised it was time to sell it for credits.

 

Saying it's 'fine' sounds like a good joke to me. Sure the is6 and the rest of those tanks mark a time when WoT wasn't f****. And yes it was fine but with current meta. No, it's not.
