Thanks for this Msixeen. I solo a lot, though I am trying to change this and I stopped focus grinding the Cent 7/1 and decided my second tier X will be the IS-4. Had a very rough start with the  St-I, had to learn to be very careful when I was a lone wolf, but am slowly improving and getting more comfortable and enjoying my path to the Is-4. I did a lot of research and felt it suits my play style for then the Is-7.

It's a good heavy. I like this as much as the E5, however a little less nimble. 

 

The angle is the key to driving the IS-4. I've been targeted and then passed over because the angle makes this whole tank RED in sniper mode. Great for Rockfield.

I remember when people used to say the same about the IS-4. Now... more and more agree that its one of the better tier 10s.

 

Just food for thought: The Maus has the second best win rate for tier 10 heavies (and is 4th overall). The E100 has the lowest win rate of all tier 10 heavies (and is 12th overall). You can make up all kinds of reasons why this doesn't mean anything if you want, but my experience playing with and against the E100 tells me its a run of the mill tier 10. After the IS-7 buffs it might be the worst of all my tier 10 heavies (I have all of them but the Maus). Its still good though... tier 10 is well balanced. I'll give you my opinion of the Maus from the inside when I grind it, but from playing against them, I will say a well played Maus is pretty impressive. And, Wotbstars shows that people are pretty successful in a Maus.

IS-4 and E5 have similar guns, but the IS-4 is slower and more heavily armored, while the E5 is much more flexible

there are SOO many more E100s than there are Maus drivers, so there are gonna be SOO many more noobs driving them.
