Its not about an op gun, its about the gun being trollish, even less reliable as its stats suggest. IS7 used to be like that but its years since i played it last.

I hated the IS-7 too. Sold it in for the black market. 303mm apcr is a meme. 277 is above and beyond better than the IS-7.

Is 7 is not that bad.

And you only played 43 games in it (so i expect the crew not having much skills.

I have that in most tanks till the crew get some skills than it become a lot better tank

And Is7 is made  for brawling not sniping.(so the gun aint that accurate)

You said so yourself - as a heavy.

 

Object 277 is a "heavy medium" hybrid, a blend of HT and MT traits that can work as both. That's pretty much MBT (main battle tank) territory and I'm not sure such a concept fits in World of Tanks, not when one team gets a 277 and the other gets a Panzer VII.

I still think IS-7 is the better choice for less advanced players by the way, just my 2c.

Join the Movement. Boycott tier x until there is some semblance of balance.

Keep your expectations low, not high.

I will not play Tier 10, unless my crew has 3 skills by default, as such, my EBR 105 crew already has 7 skills.

You know the saying "One has to experience everything at least once"?

Your case is an exception.... don't ask for proof just trust me on that.

Wargaming is always changing IS7 status. Now they nerfed the penetration so if you can not penetrate a tier IX or tier VIII tank from the side do not be surprised. I remember this year you could penetrate tier X tanks from front, but now you are very lucky is you can do this.

I like the IS-7, solid tank,

 

the penetration is ok 250 is what you should expect from a tier X Ap shell on a heavy, perhaps the problem is how some people are so obsessed with stats

they think they should allways penetrate anything by just having the 2 key enabled, and not  have RNG. 


still, 250 pen,, with RNG or not, should be enough to penetrate 70% of your shots if you happen to know where your shoting at...

if you are just another gold spammer, or someone who most of the time uses 330-340 penetration in your shells,

 

than yes... its normal to bounce upper plates, or poorly aimed shots, because that's the point of the armor anyway.


I wish WG didn't drop down the AP ammunition buff, because the IS-7 would have been one of those tanks that would be so much better if the AP rounds

had 25% more damage.
