Coming soon to the Supertest is the ISU-152K, a Soviet Tier VIII TD.


Its outstanding feature is the 152-mm BL-10 gun, which boasts high armor penetration and an alpha of 750 points. The basic round can pierce 286 mm of steel while the special APCR round can break through 329 mm. The gun’s accuracy is not that impressive (0.41) and neither are its aiming time (3.4 seconds) or rate of fire (3.16 shots per minute).


In terms of protection, the ISU-152K is on par with its researchable counterpart the ISU-152, with 90 mm of armor at the front of the conning tower and an HP pool of 1,200 points. The dynamics are similar with the ISU-152K having a top speed of 40 km/h and a specific power of 12.7 hp per tonne of weight.


All in all, the ISU-152K is very much like its tech tree ‘relative’. The differences with the researchable TD are subtle: the horizontal firing arc is a bit wider, the armor penetration of the gun is a bit higher—at a cost of slightly lesser mobility and a slightly longer reload time. You don’t have to adjust to this vehicle as its play style is familiar to the majority of tankers: an ambush TD with high one-time damage.

Oh look, the ISU-152 with a BL-10 gun..  oh wait, you removed the BL-10 from the vehicle in 9.20 because it was too OP. 

Go away WG

Aah, the classic "Remove a module setup form a vehicle just to sell it as a premium down the line" tactics again. Truly a power move I must say. Also the stats picture was made for ants?

Truly an exceptional move Wargaming, adding back a module and calling it a new tank.

Is it balanced? Yes.
Is it weaker than tech tree one? No.
Is it stronger? No.
You get some, you lose some.

For me, monetization is better in this way than defender-like monetization, not to mention tier 9 lt on tier 8 - 432 and EBR 75.

Stop cry kid. If you can't buy it then enjoy free content, wg is even giving up to 10 days of premium time monthly and tier 6 and 7 premiums every month, what you spoiled brats want more?

Ahahaha, Wow, this is April fools', right? :teethhappy:

 

So, you removed the BL10 because of balance issues, and made a completely similar vehicle as a premium...

I say completely similar because except the gun handling (which is still close to the original),

- 50hp is barely a difference,

- despite the mobility hardstat nerf, you gave it better softstats (hidden).

 

I'm just saying, you're not fooling anyone. But can we please have something else, for a change?

 

How about new historical permanent camos (not some one time offer), or a new branch on a tech tree (with its usual premium to go with it) ?

750 damage on tier 8 tank which faces tier6 oppinents is a joke. Absolutely ridiculous.

Why? Because even if the tank would be balanced, being one-shot isnt fun. 

 

WG, u are about to introduce a monstrosity. A game breaking abnormaly. 

 

It would be clearly a design fault. Extremely high burst damage is a game and fun breaker.

Don't worry, it won't be nerfed until enough people have bought it ;)

So, what does this ISU-K move now means like ?

 

All your progression tanks are completely useless at tier 8 , when one can just go ahead and buy a better premium as tier 8.

so All almost all your progression tanks at tier 8 trash when compared to your premiums.

Why bother even for grinding for tier 8s. And if you say to get tier 9 n 10s , All your tier 9 n 10s eat so much credits n make so much less credits.

 

1) Borsig vs Skorpion-G (winnner is Skorion G)

2) LTTB vs LT-432 (winner is LT-432)

3) IS-3 vs IS-6 or Obj-252U (winners are IS-6 n Obj)

4) AMX-50B vs Somua (winner is Somua , cuz it also got armor as +)

5) Panterra vs Progetto (winner is Progetto, 1 extra shell)

6) IS-2-II vs 703 v2 (winner is 703 , cuz more alpha+ armor)

 

These are just some in list..

n as the list can go on n on n on...

if u compare most of the progressions vs premiums ..

i wud say most times premiums wud be better in general.

 

And Top of the tree grind for ISU-152 was a joke ?

so all those who bought it this month around can't even have some time for fun.

When soon WG might just pollute MM with it's premium ISU-152K,

which ofc people can buy for bucks , rather some grind.

Pantera 44 and proggeto 46 have same number of shells...the difference lies on that pantera has armor and some theoretical speed while proggeto has better clip times.

This Post clearly shows the competence of 46% winrate player. He doesnt have any idea what he is doing.

 

Edit: and i mean that post where he claims that pantera has 2 shot clip and is6 is better than is3
