Perhaps related to the new Berlin map special? I mean, why else ANOTHER IS-2 premium...?

It may be around the corner but who loads HE or HEAT to deal with an IS-2 when AP goes straight through the front? Honestly can't see any point to this tank except for collectors and markers. Everyone else desperate for a premium IS is probably better off waiting for the IS-2 Berlin to come on sale again so they get the BiA crew with it.

BIA crew may not be worth it anymore, what with crew 2.0 around the corner.

Then I'll look forward to the refund I'll get for all the BiA crews I spent money to buy with Berlin tanks, Tiger 131, etc.

Another RussianPremium? Who would've guessed, just what we needed comrades!! 
(Sarcasm intensifies)

In all honesty though, of all the tanks they decided to make another variant off, why of all the tanks did they chose the IS-2? don't we already have 3 variants of this tank, 2 of them are premiums.

So it's basically a worse IS-2 Berlin. I say worse. As we don't know how thick those plates are, and the spacing above the hull to be wroth the worse dpm and dispersion.

Let me give you some more ideas:

- IS-2A - IS-2 with autoreloader

- IS-2(e) - IS-2 with 4 set of tracks

- wheeled IS-2

- IS-2 art. (first tier 8 premium SPG)

- IS-2-II - double barrel IS-2 (oh wait, that will actually be a thing :P )

The premium above is already the ИС-2Э Экранами.

Also, the (e) for Obyekt 279 stands for early, which makes no sense since it is neither obyekt 279 nor early (it is obyekt 726).

 

And da, we need more IS-2 tanks.

I'm all for new Soviet premium heavy tanks armed with D-25Tech, but this thing looks ridiculous.

You say that now, but when you either:

- put some solar panels up and make it a hybrid tank to save on fuel or

- sell billboard ad space to some upcoming asian company

then they can mock how ridiculous it looks, while you take a dive in that big mula pile.

If I wanted an IS-2 in the first place, why would I want it looking like that?

It should be obvious to anyone with a working brain that this game has more then enough Russian (premium) tanks already as well as premium tanks in general.

 

Adding more premiums will not add to improving the gaming experience, thus it's a wasted effort in this battle to try and get the player numbers stable or up again instead of down.

Focus on adding/balancing the existing tech-tree tanks.

I lolled pretty hard at that. He's not wrong though... 18 Russian HT premium tanks is not enough indeed. :teethhappy:

KV-2 turret side is perfect for such ventures  and they wouldn't need to corrupt the sexyness of IS tanks.
