I have 6 tier 10s, including recently purchased IS-7 and IS-4.  I loved both the ST1 and the IS-8.  People had worried me about the IS8 but I play solo and had a 58% WR and Ace.  Love the IS-4 and have an early WR of 72% in it.  It's a low sample size but can't win in IS-7, WR of only 35%.  Seems like if I go out front EVERYBODY targets me even hull down straight on, and the big tier ten TDs HE me to death while the Meds flank the heck out of me.  If I stay somewhat back I end up with easily 3-4k in damage but surrounded and dead in the end with another loss to show for it.  I am hoping someone's got some clues how to play this thing because I am currently clueless and frustrated. Thanks!

Tier 10s: IS-7, IS-4, T110E5, T110E3, E100, and my favorite E50m

Keep staying back, if you know you can do well frontlines, then go ahead. Do you platoon? I would highly suggest finding someone who fights like you to play with. 

what's the point of living if you're just going to be miserable?

is7 is totally diff from is8. Is7 is about the armor, speed isn't that good. Is7 is all about getting to hull down positions quickly, sidescraping, and bouncing shots

I agree that it plays different than the IS8.  Really the IS4 to me plays more similar to the 8.  I also like the side scraping better on the 4 than on the 7.  I think part of my problem is the poor gun depression causes me issues when I use some of my typical hull down positions I use for T30 and others which have better depression, and when I go to shoot I sometimes have to expose my lower front plate I guess.

Of course everybody target IS-7 because it's a tank DESIGNED to break enemy front line and that's what you should be doing in this tank. Your task is to get close to the enemy and draw fire to yourself letting the rest of the team deal the damage. The most important skill is not to shoot but to bait shots and avoid penetrations; it's a special style and you just have to learn it.
