The reason why I want the is3 is because it is the ONLY tier 8 that I couldn't penetrate from the front with my bp,  but the kv4 is a lot like the bp

The IS-3 DOES NOT HAVE IMPENETRABLE ARMOR! It's a mistake that many many new players make (including me). The truth is, the IS-3's armor is penetrable by many of the tanks it faces. The center of the pike nose (where all plates meet) was lowered from PC, so the effective armor is worse.

 

And please learn the game before you venture to tier 8. Unless you like to lose, both in terms of winrate and credits.

Work your way up the is3 line ....its a better tank than the kv4 in my opinion.  And the is7 is a good tank.  Really good armor.

Average gun.

I like the KVs better than the ISs up to that tier.  I think I'll like IS-8 more though once I get it.  T-150 and KV-3 are better than their counterparts at least as far as actually feeling like heavy tanks and not just a slow, powerful gun on a somewhat slow and weak platform.

 

If you get the IS I would definitely recommend getting KV-13 first though.  It is the most overpowered and ridiculous medium tank in the whole game.

Ok I have decided to get both the kv1s and t150 and I will choose one to grind and one to skip.

Learn from some of us that made silly mistakes of our own back in the beginning. Do NOT free xp tanks. Use free xp to circumvent poor stock guns or to upgrade an engine if you want but learn each tank to the max before you move on to the next tier. If you dont, you'll become like some of us who are now going back and rehabbing old lines because we jumped tiers too fast.  Good luck!

While driving you become hyper alert to surroundings identifying escape routes, and good defensive positions, and realize crap I'm in my car not a tank.

13 battles and 30% winrate, yeah, you're not new. But you still can't play properly, which is why we want you to go back to lower tiers. In higher tiers, people start to get competitive and expect you to know how to employ certain tactics, which you don't.

I like the is3, but I'm worried about the is7 and being flanked,  because I heard that the is3 has a very bad turn rate. 

 

Kv-4 and ST-i and IS-4 are both 100x slower than anything on IS3 side... 

If you are worried about being slow... KV line is NOT your line.

I'm ok about being slow with meat shield tanks,  but is3 is more of a flanking tank,  too.

Uhh, no not really. They are all close range, flat ground brawlers.

KV-4 is kind of a disappointment after KV-3, with a gun that doesn't wreck everything that stands before it.  St-1 is almost too good though.  It's kind of ridiculous really.  It was definitely worth it.  I will eventually get both Russian heavy lines done but I think I'll probably like IS-4 more.

Anyone who isn't a complete moron knows to go down the IS-3 line before the KV-4 so you don't stuck with a 175mm pen gun at tier 9.

 

Not everyone knows the game, hence the purpose of this thread.

LOL, KV-4's top gun (ZiS 24) by far more superior that IS-3 BL-9... Unusually good for Russian gun handling + excellent pen. You can actually reliably pen the Defender frontally. What not to like!
