Next step put an 'inverse autoreloader'cannon gun on the Defender and reduce the aimtime as well. Need more free play unicum to rest in peace. :trollface:

Well, think that MTs autoloaders are very agile and can move around easily to unload their burst potential. And thus are dangerous. 
The IS3a is not, and cannot so easily go to flank others. 
Also it cannot hit anything at a distance with this accuracy. 
Honestly i dont believe its anything to worry about. Yes, in a city scenario, in a distracted opponent, it has huge potential, But that's it. 

 

Even in the open, if this thing goes where meds go .... it will be too strong.

As for the accuracy .... end accuracy is about 0.41 with food + bia. It's not amazing, but you can hit stuff with that accuracy, especially since now it's more about luck.

If the gun handling is anything like pre-change then nobody need worry, You'll need the 3 shells for the chance of making 1 hit.

Please remain on topic, constructive and DEFINITELY do not insult one another or break forum rules with toxic behavior. I've already unapproved some posts. 

 

We are still collecting feedback, I'm asking about the availability from boxes and store. 

 

For the in-game performance, I personally don't know how it performs, so I can't help there. But it's important people reserve judgment until perhaps they get their hands on it?

Just an IS-3 but with +2 extra shells of burst. I bet it's totally fine and balanced. /s

Is3a is balanced for the same reason that 268 v4 was balanced when it was released :hiding:

Lets wait and see what comes out, but as stats presented go, i definatly see this one as OP, as tier 8 and higher goes, it will take some thinking to play this, but as lower tiers go, poor ppl will get slaughtered! (just need to push foward, face hug enemy, auto aim and let it rip)

That burst potencial especially with such a low reload time is worrying, and DPM numbers that WG presents are way off, easy to do the maths.

 

There are tech trees and tanks that need an urgent attention, we are on the EU server so its understandable that we want to see the german tech tree get some attention, but japanese one needs it too bad! But what do they do? Russian ones again!!! Wich will lead to more decline in the EU server, cause either u go "russian bias" or dont play...

 

Im seing this introduction as armfull to the gameplay and will not be good, and ppl will be raging and complaining in the following months for sure.

 

In the server population and future gains (financial) is a really crappy and bad move by WG, in the short term it will make some ppl waste money as crazys in the loot boxes to get them (so many heartbreaks incoming...) and then most will rage quit cause they didnt got one, so short term (close of year) is good for WG, but will be disastruous i think in the long run...

 

Nevertheless lets give the benefict of the dought and wait for ppl to get theirs ingame and see what happens, but for me, it just smells like Obj 468 V4 all over again...

 

I think its a mistake this tank as it is, especially with so much ingame needing attention but hey its WG and we are unfortenally getting acostumate to this and losing faith it will someday get fixed, wich leads to... One setp closer to moving on to another game...

I am almost 100% sure this guy will buy enough boxes to get Is3a for himself otherwise He would not defend a premium tank being so OP.

 

That is exactly what I am going to do

Even if I don't get it, the gold I will be able to accumulate will allow me to get through some terrible grind tanks that I'm stuck on right now

 

It is not OP, only powerful in the right situation - but then, so is most of the other tanks in this game

As I said...Some of us have to earn the money we spend and do not have the luxury of using mommy`y allowance.

Why dont i invest my time somewhere else..?See the quickybaby`s link above.Some poeple just try to fix what`s broken and not buy the new thing right away.

 

You can quote QB as much as you like, I stopped watching him ages ago because all he does it whine about things that WG do - like the MM fix

And I do work for my money thankyou very much, not like that is any of your business

So, encouraging YOLO rushes, are we? Autoloader with no drawback after initial shots fired. No reason not to rush, unload, then keep having a good DPM all the time.

 

And all that despite of all negative feedback you received from the community?

 

Incredible. Keep doing this, good work WG. Lose some more players in exchange for short-term financial benefit.

 

​Rushing is never good without considering the risks. No matter the tank, rushing = pain and lots of incoming fire.

OP after OP and quite surprise, Russian again!

After 3 shoots, if you haven`t time, you are regular IS-3 but with BETTER reload... If you have only a little more time you are a BEAST again.

With MORE HP and MORE penetration, "just in case"... Because you are Premium!

No, there is no need to put your hands on it. It already looks broken like the 268v4 did before it was released. We know how the game works, we have experience what are important tank qualities and what are not. The IS-3 A compared to it's peers is overpowered as overpowered can be, even  a 252U will tremble  in fear when approached by this monstrosity. Just let that fact sink in for a second.

I don't understand why IS-3 is a reloader. It is very inaccurate.

 

French reloaders are all accurate with average aim time. Russian IS-3A will very likely miss 1-2 hits from the reloader.

 

I like the gun of IS-3 - it really hits hard and its armor is very good too (not against Tier 10) but as a reloader it would be a bad combination

 

Far better would be T-54-A or STG Guard-A etc

 

WG do we have some work going on on this now ?

 

Thank you
