IS-6 would have to be an arse bandit, 'cos it sure isn't penning anything frontally even with a buff in all those TIX matches 3/5/7 will shove it into...

IS 6, one of most popular tanks lol.

Wargaming you're avving a laugh.

Sold my IS 6 years ago.

Armour is mediocre these days and even 186mm of pen will still not cut it against most tier 9's.

The new amount of pen is still not sufficient when tanks like the Defender and VK100.01P are still in the game, even if it's a preferential premium. 

 

Simple fact is that both the IS-3 and IS-6 fight the same tier 8 and tier 9 tanks so there is no reason for the IS-6 to get less pen, unless it hardly sees tier 9 like it used to in the old days.

Missed an "I" first go, principle is still the same IX or X, IS-6 and the other pmm buffs is just a WG excuse to sell power creeped pmm tanks in 3/5/7 now their original plan for them was shot down...

HAHA, you turned the IS6 into a soviet Chrysler with PMM. Armor has become better, but the gun is STILL worthless against Defenders, Liberties, Patriots and most tier 9 heavies and meds, so you need to fire premium if you want something, eliminating your chance to farm credits. And forcing tier 6-7 tanks to fire more premium. MONEYMONEYMONEYMONEYMONEY!

 

Congratulations, WG, you have created yet another statpadder tier 8 premium. I hope SirFoch's gonna have a good rant with it like he had with the Chrysler.

At least something entertaining will come out of it.

 

PS. I sold my IS6 about 1.5 years ago, as I knew it wouldn't be buffed, or even if it would, the 'buff' would be like the T34's 'buff' great for show, but pretty much useless.

Already have it but if I did not why on earth would I want it.

There is NO reason or excuse for today's premium tanks to be weaker than their standard variants nor is there any reason for them to be much stronger.

Exception if you are currently working on buffing the standard variant.

 

You created 3 premiums that are somewhat similar to the IS3, the IS6, IS3a and Object 252U

 

The current IS6 gun is barely adequate in a standard tier 8 MM its good against tier 6 and 7 excellent even, usable against some tier 8 tanks and a waste of space in the team when facing tier 9 and 10s.

3 5 7 MM means you will very rarely see anything below tier 8 so its rubbish.

 

IS3a is probably decent but its an autoloader and until they produce other autoloader tanks in the Russian tech tree that too is useless.

The Object 252U was OP when first released now its just a strong tier 8 which again will get taken out by tier 9 and 10 tanks most games.

Stop selling the PMM tanks PMM does not work any longer you will still hardly ever meet lower tiers all you get to see most games in an IS6 is either 5 tier 9s and 10 tier 8s or all tier 8s.

 

I understand that you don't want to bring back the Object 252U even though its sold on other servers so maybe create another tier 8 Russian Heavy tank.

225 pen 390 damage or better and not an autoloader.

I for one will thank you.

What a shame that WGN is still throwing these Premium-Tanks with preferential matchmaking at us to get money... under the aspect that they are subject to change and lose the preferential matchmaking!

 

It has so lousy Pen (175mm / 217mm) and stands no chance against the new generation Tier8 Premiumtanks like the buffed Löwe, the Defender, the Patriot or M4 - even the Caernarvon AX is going to make mincemeat out of this with it's DPM - and that's what you wanna pay with your money for? You will meet these on a regular basis...

 

Why they don't wait until they get their stuff straight with these specMM Tanks until they try to make further cash with it?

 

I strongly disrecommend to buy any Tanks like the 112, WZ-111, IS-6, FCM, KV-5 or SuperPershing as long it is not clear what is going to happen exactly with these tanks - what you see is not what you get..

 

my 5 cents

What rock have you been hiding under? PMM tanks will keep their PMM status...
