They've nerfed it into a giant piece of crap.

wth.. And a huge boost to su-85 in both hp and dpm, so it's wayy better than the stug iii now... 1764 dpm (200 alpha) to the stug's 1685 dpm plus a big boost in hp (520 vs 650 now)?! I know the su-85 was trash before, but now it puts the stug to shame. Couldn't they at least make them somewhat equal instead of swinging back and forth?

The aim time and the load time of the IS are just forever now.   Once people catch on to how long the aim time is you'll never be able to play your IS again.

Sadly, I'm in complete agreement.  Lost Temple, 10 shots fired, 5 hits, 3 pen.  Like trying to shoot pool with a rope.  Easy win, lost because I couldn't carry.  I was killed by a Churchill sitting still that my shell bounced, a Churchill.  1,098 games, afraid she'll never see 1,100.  

 

Because nerfs are data based, if anyone is dim enough to play it, I hope they buff it in the future.  Nothing like the prior IS3 nerf or 1.11's KV3 nerf.  Those are adjustments, IS was wrecked.  RIP IS, your service to Stalin has ended unceremoniously.

I dunno, just played 2 games on IS and won.


You just have to be more careful now, as opposed to going in balls out. Because of blazing-fast reload speed on IS before, you could drive in and freaking DPM everything down if you were the top tank on the field.


Which is not to say that I'm happy about the nerf... it's a pretty heavy nerf. And I don't like it. But you can deal with it.

Poorgaming sure knows how to [edited][edited]up. Why do they feel the need to nerf these tanks??!! I don't get it. 2.86 rounds per minute in a KV-1S is way too unrealistic. They say they aren't trying to go off historical artifacts when making these tanks as far as speed, maneuverability and reloading times are concerned but they want to make it so difficult to play, that everyone wants to no longer use it. Whoever these idiots are behind these updates needs to be fired ASAP. I don't want new tank lines and two free premium days in exchange for crappier tanks. They can keep their two free days. We can (at least I) can do without them. I want some more reasonable game play out them. Hellcat and T20 had same gun but the T20 had twice the reload speed. No tank should have a reloading period slower than six seconds without adrenaline or ram gunner.

Just played the IS and wow, that was one HUGE nerf.  It feels like the kv1s with that super long reload time.  No longer front line and must be support which I hate.  Sure used to love that tank.....  Now it's almost unplayable.

Well, vote with your Garage. IF they see that people stopped using the tank after the nerf, they might bump it back up.

 

But yeah, 3 extra seconds reload time is crazy.


Not a fan of the nerf at all.
