Still at the ST-I here but the gun certainly feels a bit underwhelming at 440 average alpha - it's not a small amount, but it feels kinda lacking when compared to the German 12.8cm, the Chinese 130mm, and the 50TP (Polish tier 9) laughs at everyone with its 560 alpha.

That said, I'd rather they buff the gun handling first, which is absolutely terrible. Don't know if there's any improvement on the IS-4 but I doubt it. :(

I am ok with 440 alpha as long as the gun handling and DPM make up for it, but on IS-4 it does not. ST-I is a beast tier by tier compared with IS-4.

Yes, especially because 440 alpha is still high at tier 9, while is on the low end at tier 10, with bad DPM and gun handling. IMO IS-4 should get the same gun as 277. Both the line share almost all the guns, so why should tier 10 being different?

Forget the IS-4, what about the Obj. 260? 250mm flat gun mantlet any tier 10 tank can penetrate with standard ammo? Paper-thin enormous roof? HELLO?!?

IS-4 is one of the oldest tanks available to players (to ALL players, not the special ones that managed to clear the first batch of personal missions), imho it has priority in deserving some love.

Who cares about 260. It's a reward tank not a tech tree one you grinded and paid 6.100.000 credit + 400.000 for the gun.

...are you saying it takes longer to grind to the IS-4 than to the Obj. 260? The kinds of tanks you need to be able to complete the missions for it, are often tier 10 ones... The 260 takes a lot more time and effort to get to, so is it a fitting reward if it's just as crap as the IS-4?

i know you paid 6.100.000 credit + 400.000 for the gun. but did you know that you need 5 tier x tanks atlest to take 260

so you need atlest to pay 30 000 000 credit + so many free XP and dont forget the time you spend to complet all the missions

You can complete the mission just playing and grinding your tanks. And grindng is usually what a player does most of the time to reach the tanks he wants or needs.

IS-4, on the pther hand, is a tier 10 normal tank. You need to grind the line. You are forced to play one specific tank over and over, not a whole set. I got lucky that enjoyed almost every tank in the line, but that's not true for everyone. And then you get a powercreeped tank. Nice. If your aim is the tier 10, you basically wasted time and credit. And this is true for all the powercrept tanks, like Leopard1.

Oh, yes. Reward tanks also come with the mission rewards, so you likely gain credit more than spending them.
