Whatever reason WG had for removing 26 pen from the ISU 152's capabilities.

The game has powercreeped to the point it should be fine to add the BL10 back to the ISU 152.

 

Not only was the gun as long as a telephone pole that made the ISU look menacing.

But the standard shell provided 286 pen, compared to the neutered version we have today that only has 260 pen.

 

The UDES 03 a tier 8 TD has even higher pen at 288 pen on its standard shell.

The ISU 152 was balanced with the BL10, because the gun trolls the user as often as it trolls the enemy.

 

At least make it so that if the shell hits that we have a higher chance to pen... like we used to.

It was my favorite tank back then. Bring it back?

If you can't make a 268 pen 750 alpha gun work at tier 8 then the extra 26 isn't going to help you.

Pls read the post I made the standard shell of the ISU 152 in its current form is 260 pen, not 268.

i wonder how you would make tier 8 HT work as they have around 225 pen, and MT around 200 pen, while lights are like 170 pen

 

think it is a player issue if you cant make 260 pen work which is already way higher than most tanks (even bunch TD) at that tier

How horrible, only 260 pen at tier 8, how are you ever going to kill anything with that.

Where in my post did you read I was struggling?

I am asking to restore the ISU 152 to its former glory.

 

i mean surely there must be some other old ISU 152 drivers out there that would like to play the tank again as it was.

You do 750 damage and have among the highest penetrations of the tier, what more do you want?

 

Cobra 6

286 pen and a LOOONG gun. 

I thought that was clear from my post.

 

i am not suggestion something strange as this was how the ISU 152 was like for many years.

They started nerfing it to the state we know it today around the introduction of the Swedish TD line

(though I'm not entirely sure about that last part)

Yes, while we're at it, lets bring back pre-nerf Hellcat and KV1S.

Oh yes and lets buff HEAT again, I think it's underperforming these days compared to APCR.

Ahh the Troll canon... Flaming thing used to miss more than it hit, in fact at times it couldn't hit the proverbial barn doors and that was from inside the barn :)

Yup it trolled the user as often as the one you fired at.

not all about size my dude, trust me.

 

Dont need to compensate with a big ISU gun. Its often the smallest things that pack the biggest punch :)

I am, you are demanding buffs for a tank which are not needed. I am demanding equally as obnoxious desires.

What buff? Restoration to its former glory is what I'm asking for.

Redoing a wrong is not a buff.

 

A buff would be asking for more, which I am not interested in.

if one is asking to return something to old values you could assume the person is struggeling with current values,  why else would he make a topic out of it?
