Which one should I get?For IS I already have the 100mm from T-44.Same with Kv3.Just to let you know I am more of a med player.Kv3 doesn't seem any better besides the hp.The armor has the same weekspots.

The IS has a better tier ten.

I would love for Wargaming to succeed, and I will push for success until I'm gone or Blitz is.

You go down lines to get the tier 10. That's the whole point of the game.

Kv3 has much longer survivability in terms of holding positions, its turret has practically no weakspots that stick out and yes its turret armor is better overall, but since you like mediums go for the is, its more versatile

If you prefer meds, you will probably feel more at home in IS.  My wr is a little better in IS (low 70's vs hi 60's) but I came to it later. KV 3 is a sidescrape monster; howeve, it's top gun was just nerfed. I don't hesitate to take either out solo, though. Both great tanks!

 

 

edit: It's debatable which tier 10 is better, btw. IS-4 can be a beast in the right hands.

IS has a lower profile and slightly better mobility, KV-3 has better turret armor and is better at sidescraping and hull down.

 

i liked them both, it's up to you.

I think it is a hard choice, because both have their strengths. The question is: can you sidescrape? It is essential for the KV3 and not so much in the IS. Also, you really ahead to guard the lower glacial more on the KV3. However, I really liked playing both. Lastly, the KV line of tanks all have similar play style, so once you master it you are good to go.

Falsch! The IS4 line is better tier for tier than the is7 line, maybe excepting KV1S

Wat. IS has better armor than the KV-3, and is more mobile, and gets the same guns... Tank comparison

I'd also like to show off the IS-3's turret. The KV-4 is a novelty IMO, because of hitskins. If I see one sidescraping I just wait for the turret cheeks. The side is better on the IS-3 as well.

I will agree the ST-I is superior though, as well as the T-150.

I was showing the bias of having a relatively low number of samples. In the IS vs KV-3 case, the IS has been owned by far more players, and played more than twice as much, allowing for more bias, especially since skilled players make up a relatively small population. This effect is exacerbated the further you progress up the lines.
