I was afraid of this!   As soon as I read the nerd updates I cringed!  They are forcing us to park the great ones and buy the new ones.  Spend more money?  Right?

Funny thing is the turret armor if the T29 shall never be defeated (WG gives it the waffletraktorE-100 turret)

Played one match in the IS just now.  Missed 5 of 6 shots...  Sold it.  It was a fun run while it lasted.

It seems fine however the gun reload nerf was a little too much. The rest of the tank still feels fine.

Use the D10T gun... far better DPM and accuracy than the nerfed 122

Nerfs make total sense. I have unicom stats in T29, IS and KV3 playing almost exclusively solo all 3 of them and I for sure ain't no unicom. So obviously those tanks were unbalanced before. The most recent one of the 3 I played was T29 and I didn't even have to try hard to carry and win solo battles in it after I got the 105 gun. I was on autopilot just winning and winning any Tier 7 matches in it unless other team had unicom platoon or something like that.

 

On the other hand in any of any of my tier 10 tanks I am lucky to win two matches in the row and I have to really focus to do that. I actually have to check what tanks and players other team has and think what they will do etc. Not not with T29. Just do whatever default action is for any map and Tier 7 match win is guaranteed while playing solo. That's not right.

Yes, the IS nerf is very noticeable and trying to defend yourself is harder than ever now. The enemies know, and they charge right ahead while you're trying to hold cover, now that they know your reload is par with a T34.

With the average team composition, I guess I'll just park the IS next to the IS3 for the time being.

Why do they have to F up everytime? Are they balancing the tanks? No I don't think so. I am already used to this crap.

:great: This guy knows what's up.  People, just because they nerfed your favorite gun in the tank doesn't mean the whole tank is ruined.  There are 4 other guns to choose from in the IS, and one of them just because the best choice.  Sure, the D-25T used to be where it's at, but it is no longer.  The D10T is now the best option for the IS.  Same pen as the D-25T, lower alpha, but higher DPM due to faster ROF.  Better accuracy and aiming time too.

 

Tier VII - IS                            
Gun ROF Low Dmg High Dmg   Low DPM High DPM Average DPM   Low Pen High Pen Average Pen   Dispersion Aiming Time
85 mm D-5T 9.60 150 250   1440 2400 1920   90 150 120   0.46 2.9
100 mm D10T 6.67 210 350   1401 2335 1868   131 219 175   0.42 2.9
85 mm D5T-85BM 9.22 150 250   1383 2305 1844   108 180 144   0.37 2.9
122 mm D-2-5T 3.53 300 500   1059 1765 1412   131 219 175   0.46 3.4
122 mm D-25T 4.00 300 500   1200 2000 1600   131 219 175   0.46 3.4

 

Don't just see a nerf and go "OH NOES!" trying to do the same thing you used to do.  Adapt and survive.  The IS is still a perfectly viable tank with a great gun option.

Bought the IS back.  Tried the 100mm gun for a few games.   Depressing as hell.   Doing 250 damage with shots that used to do 400 is not fun.   Sold it again.
