Soooo.

Just to clear up things, here is my opinion on obj. 703 v. 2

It is a very strong tank that lacks some fundamentals...

You loose a lot of dpm if you dont wait for full reload, as you loose 5 seconds of reloading or more from the next barrel. Also double barrel shot, while exciting isnt really competitive, as it shoots at the moment guns stop charging, making timing shots very hard.

While the armour is great and mobility is ok, neither of theese really hold up against anything shooting gold (unless autoaimed), and is really unreliable...

The best way of using it is as a regular tank, that can at the end of a combat put out another punch.

As a regular tank, it is a very big and easy target for high pen tds and arty...

That is in my opinion and feel free to argue with me (but stay reasonable)

While maybe being a bit overtuned I wouldn't call it is3a grade Op. Its dpm gets hurt by shooting without waiting for reload and needs angling. For previous reasons I think it can be very powerful in good players hands, but meh in bad ones

That tank is the biggest disappointment this year.

Yes, It has good armour, and a twin barrel -but the downsides outwages the the positives.

There is a lag between you press the button and until it shoots. It feels like half a secound or so, making it extremely clumsy to use. 

When shoting both barrels simultaniusly, it's my exprerience the penetration gets reduced.

And the turret traverse speed is just too slow....It encourges camping....MORE camping.

Well...maybe you have been spoiled with too many too good premium tanks over the past few years?

 

This thing tier for tier is better then any regular tech tree at it's tier...which has become the norm...so how exactly is it disappointing? That it is slightly worse then a 252U or a 3A? Come on...

how is this thing better than is3? Ok, I agree is-3 is one of the best tech tree t8 heavies. But don't see how this thing is better.

 

worse gun for some gimmicks that are more than situational...

Becouse it shots on mouse release by default, to distinguish between single and double shot. So, try to tap the mouse button, or alternatively, you can change the hot key of the double shot in the settings, so the left mouse button will trigger single shot as with any other tank.

No lag, only laziness to find out answers.

IS-3A is so OP I can't recall the last time I saw one in battle, making it some special grade OP niche representative.

Look, when is3a fires 3loaded shots, it can then reload next ones faster than is3...

That is definetly and clearly stronger than techtree tanks...

Obj, 703v2 is not op in the hands of a brain dead tanker...

Faster reload makes tanks OP? Interesting.

Got any more pearls of wisdom to share?

Defender , IS3A and Obj 703 II are all GOOD OR BORDERLINE OP TANKS.

 

Which is better ? It depends on the situation and on the player skill level.

 

Any of them is capable of single-handedly destroying the enemy team in the right situation but all 3 have their weaknesses.

 

Defender is better for bad/inexperienced players and IS3A or Obj 703 are better for great/experienced players.

 

You need to play them all to decide which is better for you.

Your stats prove that IS3A and 703 are both very OP though.

For once its not a super overpowered or broken prem tank and ppl still complain.

It's reasonably fast, has decent armour(though not at all idiot proof), and the gun is very gimmicky. Nothing more than that.

If you use it as a single shot gun you can pump out decent damage. If you only use the salvo fire option it's very situational and more often than not you won't do much.

All in all not a bad tank if you ask me.

Edit:

Also stats after 2 or 3 days mean how much exactly? Ppl are still trying to figure this thing out so in game I'd say. Wait a week or 2 and then see where it stands

THIS, SO MUCH THIS!!

 

ITS ANNOYING AS %#$%  

 

i see a target and want to shoot and then nothing happens for  a short time.

 

Overall i rate this tank bad.; 

armor does not work, get penned trough hull and turret no problem,.

angling is a 50/50 chance off succes

and for some strange reason the 221 pen is not enough to shoot trough the side of many tanks.

double shot means 1 pen and one no pen/track shot.  they have each their own flightpath. so only usefull at close quarter

Wargaming has made a poor job explaining how the system works, and, most importantly, forgot to make clear that the default keybind for double shots is the same for single shots, hence the 'lag'.

 

Go to settings and switch to a different key. 

 

The tank is good though.

Except the IS-3As gun handling is so trash you'll miss 2 of them and the third will bounce, its mobility is also dreadful. The 703 has god tier gun handling, like tier 10 medium tank levels. Both of them have terrible base accuracy but that's kind of expected from russian 122 guns. Overall the defender is probably still the best soviet tier 8 heavy.

Obj 703 not op...its balanced (and no i dont have it)

killed alot of them this weekend  best one was in my 50tp versus 2 obj703 tomatoes...and they both died 2 vs 1...

But iv seen my clan mate play it and got 6 kills in the first battle and around 3 too 4 kills the rest of the battles. but he has a 55%+winrate.

The tank is as OP as the player behind the keyboard
