Lets see, we have a poopstorm the last few days over the PMM changes you are proposing. And then you go and sell the Mutant??? Really WG? One of the most polarising premiums in the game in regards to promises broken! Either your dev and sales departments are not talking to each other (nor reading the feedback from your moderators worldwide), or this has to be the most epic troll ever...

Always wanted this tank. Thought it looked rather cool. Just checked it on tanks.gg, it's like the kv-2r. Exactly the same tank but with a skin, atleast it's not overpriced mmh :trollface:

 

It's also worse in some aspects but yeah, IS was good for it's tier

So you put on sale The Mutant yet again.

 

Remember that tank. The one you made available to Alpha Testers and said would never EVER be sold again.

 

Wargaming shameless money grabbing gits.

 

Plus IS 2 and Somua put on sale again, with no sign of the Aussie Cent.

Go back to school Wargaming.

You need to go and learn how not to piss your community off yet again.

The gun on the IS, IS-2 and IS-2 premium is far too potato for me, even at close range. Despite doing quite well in these tanks I hated every minute of playing them as literally every snapshot you take will miss regardless of the range it's fired at.

Finally, I was waiting for it long time, especially since 8 May      :)

 

I love my IS, now I can sell it any retrain its crew for other tank. Besides IS-2 1944 hull look much better than early hull witch IS have.

 

I don't know why there is so much hate about reskinned premium, no one force you to buy it, and fighting against it make no difference. Is better that, than some OP med-heavy hybrids.

Now is time for Centurion 5/1, and I want it not because it have more frontal armor, but because it allow me to reduce another weakest crew, besides have grate veteran look.

 

I stop grinding more tanks since SU-122-54 (cannot forgive you that), and reducing crew is my main objective now, since I have 120 tanks, some reskinned premium/reword tanks are welcome (with some historical, veteran look, no need for clowns without ability to turn it off)

Its mix of Soviet and Chienese IS tanks. Having some paramathers from this and that. So its not exactly same to any, but they are all pretty much plays same in the end anyway, right?

Used to be one of fav tanks. No more as you literally bottom tier every game. Still, its not like can't do anything at bottom, but its much less fun when you have to try this hard to even have some use.

It wasn't exactly offered to Alpha Testers. It was part of the biggest preorder package. But right, we were all promised our preorder tanks would never be sold again on the EU server. And this isn't their first attempt to break their promise. So I assume it won't be long and they will have my Unpanther on sale, which would be by far the better bang for the buck btw.

 

I don't care. I won't believe again in what they say anyway.

I got it mainly for the Berlin crew, Comparing it in game to the IS and Chinese IS2 they very are similar.

Power to weight is lower because its a 600hp engine not 700 and then they gave the IS2 better ground resistances to bring the performance back to be close to the IS figures something they do quite often with these premiums..

Engine might get knocked out a bit easier but not played the IS for some time so difficult to tell.
