390 is high alpha damage on tier 8 in 2021? Maybe 8 years ago...

Good luck penning Defenders with 225 prem pen and 196 standard. :great:

The recent small pen buff is not enough to make this competitive via-a-vis the newer tier VIII premiums. Too expensive for outdated tank - would advise people to hold onto their cash for a better tank.

Hi!
Why are you selling a tank with PMM.
You said it is bad for MM, that why you removed from in-game shop?
Yes, it has a PMM. But i will u tell out of 100 game u will be maybe facing 10 times with tier 6, 10 times with tier 7, 50 times with tier 8 ( T56/ Defi/ Bora/ Progi/ Skoripion) and 30 times with tier where u can go f... yourself.
In 2021 PMM is a [edited]joke and most of tanks with this are crap.
So... if you want it go and buy.
But after that dont cry on the forum how bad / crap / crapthe IS-6 is.

Ps.: Thx WG for the -30% coupon but not gone happen.

IS 6 is trash, always has been, and always will be.

I sold mine years ago back when it only had 175mm pen.

 

Its only saving grace is the pref mm.

But even that and the tank struggles against tier 9's.

The IS6 was powercrept by the Defender, which was powercrept by the 703 II and friends which will be powercrept no doubt in the next year by a new Ruski Heavy.

Selling IS-6 in 2021 :teethhappy:

 

I feel bad for people wasting 40€ for a obsolete tank... there are far better tanks for that money that will give you better experience than IS6 IMHO

iS-6 sturdy ??? are you joking me ?

This tank is the IS-5's brother , another useless HEAVY tank with a paper armour and useless to push on first line.

 

IS-5 Buff was another WG clown show.

 

Pls ....be serious

With all the OP tier 9 tanks that were released in the last year or two i dont care if it has pref MM or not its almost same as if ur playing vs t10. Having 196 pen will only scratch the color off many t9 tanks these days. :trollface:

Just for the record.

Originally it was 175 mm pen.

I quite like mine despite its floors but for any PMM tier 8, it seems to mostly find itself in tier 9 or all tier 8 matchups.  If you don't mind that, then that's ok as at least its not tier 10 and when it is matched against tier 8s, 7s and of course 6s, it can still bring in the credits and I think the 196mm pen in those games is usually enough.
