I am shocked, we finally have a russian tonk as TOTT !!!

 

I have been dreaming of this, and it is finally here. There will be dancing in the streets, jubilations can finally commence.

Good, I will play the IS for a bit more crew xp and not bother with the line at all. Even at 30% off I'm unlikely to buy the IS-M

"gunslingerXXX:Even at 30% off I'm unlikely to buy the IS-M "


 

The ISM is the best in the line - monster armour.  I've just been in Tier X game and blocked 2900 damage (from  Skorpion, T54 mod 1, AMX M4 54 and AMX 65T). And shot 2732 damage. 161 games with 54% winrate.

I have the ISM and its ok will not go as far as to say good because I detest rear turreted tanks and TDs even though I play some of them.

But its not bad either its just you sacrifice a lot of useful things by mounting the turret on the back like decent gun depression though 5 degrees is ok-ish

 

I am told the 705 is a bit of a let down and the 705a it pretty good.

So stick with a decent tier 8 with bad matchmaking

Or move up to a tank with better matchmaking but might be not that good.

So I can get to a good tier 10.

I bought the 705 when it came out and hated it.  4 games, 4 losses and it seemed like crap armour.  Sold it and switched to the ST1 which I think is way better.  I tried the 705a on the test server and didn't like that either.

I like armored heavy tanks, should I start grinding this line? What do you guys think? Any tips how to play the line?

Yes.

 

IS-M is great, stock turret is cheese though.

 

I'm having some great games in the tier 9 punctuated by a lot of terrible ones where tier 8 spaghetti tanks are penetrating me from 18 miles away.  I'm starting to think that the IS-7 gun was a bad idea.  Get a good spot where you can hide your hull and it's unbeatable until a Type 4/5 comes along to ruin your day.

IS-M is great. You can go hulldown or sidescrape, or just bully against lower and many equal tier tanks (as top-tier in 3-5-7 it's completely OP). Just make sure you're not flanked by mobile tanks as it doesn't like to turn around quickly. And you need to know the limits of your gun, 215/245 penetration aren't good enough against some tanks.

705 isn't as strong tier-for-tier, but still decent. You have to be a bit more defensive as the armor isn't as strong, esp. if you can't hide your lower plate.

Don't know yet about the 705A.

The IS-M of three is the best at the moment. The 705A as good as the armor says it is, its not. Yes the turret can rival the IS-7 but for me it was all about the side scraping ability. However WOT decided to have the side armor below the spaced armor weak allowing anyone with the knowledge of that weakness to whip your [edited]even what i think is the best angle to side scrape. So before you buy and spent hours/ days grinding up the tech line, so please check out tanks.gg and test it yourselfs.

I have finished the line for completion's sake, then never played any of them again. I am sick and tired of Russian tanks, especially the heavies.

The tank is great, you just haven't figured out how to play it properly...

 


Hey WG, why don't you ever feature old tier 10 tanks? i.e. STB-1, T110E4, E100...etc.
