So I put the Leo 1 grind on hold for a while so I wouldn't grind it and rage sell after 2 games (people say you have to be super good and I have a 51% wr and 3.9k battles) and decided to keep on keepin' on with the IS line grind. On the IS-3 (very stronk tenk) but I hear lots of bad things about the IS-8, which I'm approaching very rapidly. (130k left, but the IS-3 is fun and easy to play. 

Any tips for when I do get the IS-8 to keep me from rage selling it 4+ times like I did to the poor E-75? (people say they loved the E-75 and hated the Tiger II, I was the other way around). I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Advice: don't rage sell. Ever. I have felt the urge many a time, but all it does is put you WAYYY back on creds..... Play the is-8 like a medium instead of a heavy due to its bad armor for its tier..

I like is8 more than st1 and m103, is8 is fine, not e75 good , but still very capable.

Don't be to scared, the only reason you might do bad is because you think the the IS-8 is bad, all of the rumors about the IS-8 may be true but they may not, only you can decide, It truly isn't a bad tank, it just doesn't suit most peoples play style.

IDK why you rage sold the e75.. That thing is a beast of a tank, when you get the top gun that is

The same thing goes for the is8, except it isnt as capable as the e75 stock..

TBH if you rage sold the e75, you will probably rage sell the is8 as well.

I personally LOVE mine just because of its gun alone.. It is probably the best gun on a tier 9 heavy

Slap, love the profile pic, and thanks all. Should I close flank, like instead of going all the way around on malinovka, just take the lower cliff? (You know what I'm talking about, right?) And this would of course apply to other maps.

Those rumors are lies, the IS-8 is a great tank.

You gotta get your IS-7 man. Soooo much better than the IS-8, especially after the buff now. I don't get CoD'd by T95s anymore :great:

The IS-8 is perfectly capable. Free XP to the top gun if at all possible.

Armor is weak for tier 9, but top gun is better than the IS-3's. You MUST protect the lower plate as its bigger than the IS-3'S.

Be mindful of the lack of gun depression. Lots of places on maps that will screw you because of this.

I'm about 30 games into the is8.  So far I hate it.  But still have lots of upgrading to do.  Surprised how few shots are bounced.  Figured it would drive like is3, but faster.  Not yet at least.  Need the bigger gun for sure.  Luckily I never rage sell.  I will grind it out.  But the reload time is super slow.  Need to get equipment loaded still.  I assume vents, rammer and vert stab or the other expensive one.  Thoughts?
