I think 550 alfa would be more suitable for is7, because this is a 130mm gun and almost same as object 263( with S-70a gun). I mean with the same reload time. i wolud make the dpm more reasonable with 2511. Almost every tier x heavy outdpm it. And pls don not come with the "inpenetrable turret". Boring.

So you want a huge buff on one of the best TX HT tanks in the game? :amazed:

No, it doesnt need any buff.

 

is7 as it is fine and good tank.

I played only 4-5 games after buff in random, i struggled with old is7.

IS7 didn't need any buffs the first time round, it certainly doesn't need any now.

Ofc it needed.

and is7 buff is example of good and balanced tweaking.
It didnt get too much, but is much more enjoyable to play now. plus, it doesnt break random or cw/sh gameplay.

 

i wish all previous and future tanks nerfs or reworks were as good as is7s. We would have much better game.

IS7 buff was pure powercreep, it was fine as it was, having better armour than the 113 but worse mobility/gun. IS7 buffs also made the Obj. 260 basically pointless.  It had the best turret in the game, troll side armour, better frontal armour than the other 'fast' heavies, 490 alpha as well. So why did it need it's mobility, hit points and gun handling buffed? 

 

113 and 260 are pretty pointless now since the IS7 buff. 

 

No way it needed a mobility, hit points and gun handling buff, at best maybe one of those, probably gun, but not all 3, the changes were too much. It was like the Maus all over again, where the tank needed one area needing a slight buff to keep it competitive and they then went over the top and buffed it in multiple areas.

Yeah, we saw all those is7s crushing and steamrolling over the battlefield after the buff.

 

 

also, 113 wasnt powercreeped by is7 at all. It would be still an option, if there wasnt wz5a.

What like ranked was full of IS7s?  Pretty much every game had at least four of them. 

 

It was unnecessary power creep and the tank did not need that many buffs. Even without the 5A (which is also power creep) what is the point of the 113 over an IS7? All it really has is DPM, the IS7 is as fast, has the much better armour, has arguably better handling, better frontal gun depression, more hit points, more alpha. 

 

So DPM and being slightly more agile, same with the Obj. 260.

 

IS7 used to a be balanced tank that had a role and weaknesses, decently mobile, great armour, potato gun, meaning it was suited for brawling and bullying. If you wanted a more well rounded heavium with a better gun and mobility you traded the armour for a 260 or 113. Now it's a much more complete tank and you don't make that trade off.

No. It's already stupid that Pz7 and French HT got 560 for 128mm and 130mm gun. Plus IS-7 is already good, with reliable armour, turret without weackspot, good agility and overbuffed hitpoints.

113 DPM and 340 HEAT are already go to when compared with is7. IT isnt small difference at all.

113 is more medium-style then is7 already is.

 

Talking about the RB.

 

is7 is the tank that probably most players have or go for it as one of the first tierX.

it is oldest tierX in game.

and then, you had that rumour that is7 gets far more XP then other tanks.

 

but good players, didnt play is7 that much.

is7 is  pleb tank. noob friendly. etc.

 

If you talk about bad players, then, sure, is7 is better for them then 113 and all other heavies, except maus/type5.

Why? So you can seal club harder? You realize 50%+ of games in your IS-7 are against Tier 8,9 and Tier 8s already struggle enough against you, what more do you want? 

I f*cking hate this community, particularly EU idiots who will cry about sh*t like this. If you don't like it go play some other tank, your greedy suggestion brings nothing good to the game
