Hey

Can anyone tell me WTF is up with the gun handling on the IS4, why is it so bad? Especially compared to the IS7 which has a higher calibre gun..

No idea, had a great time playing the ST-I, but i have no plans to buy IS-4 in the near future because of the worst gun depression + awful weakspot on the turret.

I just got it yesterday and the gun is just trash, I can't get over the fact that is so much worst than the IS7 which is arguably OP (best soft stats on a tier 10 heavy, can snapshot like a med, which is laughable for a 130 mm calibre gun). And also worst that any other tier 10 gun except fot the T57's.

Just wait a few months. Anything crap now will inevitably be great later, providing it's Russian. Or else be replaced by Obj 7,000,000(a), or whatever number they are currently up to.

It will be replaced with IS-100 (in my signature)

 

Then will receive some rassha balancing and will be fun again

 

 

(It needs a tweak)

I'd rather face an IS7 than an IS4

Because usually drivers of the first are worse. But IS 7 is way superior right now.

Yes, but that's not all. IS-7 is easy to deal with if you know what you are doing. LFP, front wheel, sides - all are fairy weak. IS-4 is worse tank overall but far more annoying just because that side armour. Especially if you are in tier 8/9 tank. IS-7 is invincible when hull down but IS-4 can just park in open field, angle 45 degrees and your tier 8 premium ammo can't touch him. There is no "bad position" when you are driving IS-4.

Of course this doesn't matter when facing other tier 10 and IS-7's gun is far superior. But IS-4 doesn't need much to be good - just update gun to current standards and maybe make roof weakspots smaller (it still should be a weakspot - just not that weak).

 

Also, all those japanese derps are big problem for IS-4 because of roof armour.

I know, but is not very good of a tier X to be only a tier 8 bully. Is not competitive with its tier and need a buff.

 

Armor is good as is the "russian maus"
