This heavy tank might have some mileage but with age comes experience.

i don't have it ( and i'm happy that i don't have it), but it is trash. if you don't want to waste your money , buy renegade , it is on sale now and it is such a fantastic tank and it is cheaper too. or skorpion, but it is harder to play it

Classic? Nah, I think the word you are looking for is obsolete.

It would only worth it if it was free with 30 days of premium account...

 

So you could sell it and get some credits and a garage slot...

In a couple of years, the Renegade will suffer the same power creep fate. so better keep your money until after the new balancing and if the era of goldspam ends with that.

in a couple of years maybe, but i think it will be good even after the new balancing, don't forget, renegade has a very good gun, with good pen, excellent gun handling and excellent dpm. it also has good mobility and some armor.

I don't call it classic or old, rather OUTCLASSED

With the penetration inflation of the past 6 years and the general T8 power level increase, the IS-6 is thoroughly outclassed while it's standard ammo is not able to penetrate a large section of the same tier tanks.

I had the IS6-B, and just couldn't make it work for me. I have the Defender, 112 and Alpine Tiger, and I actually prefer the chinese heavies over the Defender, despite them being a bit more difficult to play. So with that in mind I got the IS6 B in the 2019 black market if I recall correctly, but I was seriously disappointed. My FV4202 and T54 mod 1 has more reliable armor than the IS6. The mobility is okay for a heavy, however it is just not enough to make this tank very usefull. As many have said, unfavourable tier 8 MM and powercreeped alternatives has made this tank thouroughly obsolete.
