Is the IS-5 still worth it compared to the IS-6 in the current meta? Now that i have the chance to buy it as a free-to-play through bonds i wonder if it's the right choice or should i wait for a better moneymaker premium?

On paper it seemed the best from the new crop of bonds tanks, even considering the preferential mm of the IS-6 B

For all it's good points it seems to have a worse accuracy than IS-3. And that is a terrible thing.  https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Tank:R113_Object_730

Short answer, neither are competitive with current MM and tanks. Go with Defender or twin barrelled Object if you want Russian prem hvy.

Are you rly? This guy wanna get a tank from bonds shop you said to get defender or 703?
IS5 is so similar IS3, if you like is3, you like is5. Same playin style with more income

WoT powercreep left the IS-6 behind years ago, and the global accuracy nerf hit it so hard (shells fly like butterflies and will not hit weakpoints) that the buff didn't help it much, so if the IS-5 gunstats look like IS-6 it will not be fun to play.

It's bad. There's a reason you never see them, even though it was reward tank for campaign few years back. Armor is not there, gun is trash.

Are you seriously suggesting anyone to get IS-5 over 703???

 

703 is one of, if not the best tier 8 heavy in the game, IS-5 is arguably the worst, how could anyone in good conscience suggest IS-5, that might actually qualify as evil, though Hanlon's razor might be relevant here.
