Why you encounter so few IS-4 tanks on the battlefield, it is a hell of a chore to grind the IS-4 and then it remains in the garage because it is a soft target...

To be fair, armour is the only working part of the tank. It's a really hard nut to crack in a 1vs 1. The problem is that it has very bad soft stat that fight against the tank supposed playstyle: to get the best out of the armour, you need to keep moving, wriggling so that the enemy can't aim well at you. But the gun handling is so bad you need to stop for several seconds to be able to reliably hit stuff. The problem is also increased by the now low alpha/dpm and the low shell count. If it had 40-50 shell, with Maus like gun handling it would already be miles better!

IS-4, T110-E5, T-62, K-91, AMX 50B, VK 72.01, Obj 268, Badger, 121, Action X, Panzerwagen...and maybe some others.

 

All tanks that got overtaken by other ones, and fell into a niche play or obscurity. 

 

Falls under the category "why would I play that tank, if I can play a better one"

The armor can certainly work the but the gun handling is so potato and the DPM so low that it simply isn't competitive.
