Congratulations WG, you lasted for 5 months before you started to sell the IS-3A.
Because selling more OP cancer tanks is definitely a good way to keep the player base, as always.

BTW, it's two completely different mechanics, at least WG staff members should not write absolutely false, whatnot, idiotic thinks on the forum.

Got the IS3A on Christmas boxes for like 6 euros. It was a good bargging...

Don't have IS-3A and not gonna get it (this time) but atleast this one doesn't have overbuffed armour like The Other Russki T8 premium.

Alpine Tiger it is then....  I will eat my own words for pricing it.

 

I am sorry but this IS 3A is not worth that much. if it is 30$ yes but this is way too much.

It's not OP tho.

It's a one-trick pony, and it's not really good at it.

Hey at least they do offer a standard package and not just the the typical bundle bull cocky. A decent move by WG for that part, well done.

When it first came out the 3 man crew put me off.

Then it got a real autoloader with a twist and I wanted it but couldn't buy it.

Now its for sale and I cannot justify buying a 4th tier 8 Russian heavy premium just for that autoloader.

Christmas loot boxes were good to me.

It's not OP, just completely broken.

 

A reverse auto-reloader where the last shot reloads fastest so you have normal IS-3 DPM after just emptying a 3 shot clip for "huge alpha" is broken.

 

Got mine in the Christmas boxes, played a few battles and realized it was broken, stopped playing it. It's bad for the game in the long term.

IS3a is strange tank :) 

You can 3x hit the ground from 50m and then 3x hit EBR on the move @ 300m.

1200m/s apcr is impresive, a frickin laser!

Good for random, FL but 50/50 in SH and CW.

 

Somua SM - One of my favorit tier VIII premium tanks. Recently I find out that after improved tier VIII matchmaking this tank is very, very playable.

Good for random, FL but useless for SH and CW
