here we go, another attempt at getting the Glacial AP rounds up to 211mm of pen.  the WG news release before prammo nerf was -"well it makes enough credits to use more heat if you have to". so if you dont want to kill your already soso dpm, you have to roll out with 175mm'ish pen at a tier bracket dominated by frontal armor.

 

211mm pen please : )

I agree with OP this tank was hurt so badly by the prammo nerf. If anything increase the rate of fire so I can spam even more prammo.  The alpha buff would really help more though.

I have it-don't ever play it. It basically cant get through a Is3/ is6 front from any angle without prammo. Or a super p ffs. And T54. PTAs can sidescrape on my pen ffs.

I have a Glacial 112 and I'd rather just play my is5.

It may be the worst tier 8 heavy in the game; the nerfed-post-4.2 AMX 50 100 may be in the running. It does nothing good; terrible DPM, bad pen, slow, and at the bottom of HP for tier 8 heavies. People talk about the upper glacis, but it's easily penned elsewhere with a slight bit of aiming, so it's armor really doesn't help. And it's easily flanked by today's speed meta.

Wrong!   

 

Clearly you don't know weak spots.  (You can pen an is-3 from front with a tier 6 tank if you know where to aim-if memory serves me correct) 

 

 

Did this tank suffer from nerf? Yes, but it's manageable.  

 

Hull down, side scrape, and protect the bottom plate and you'll be just fine.  

 

I have a 70% 30 day wr in 112, but I'll admit statistically it's so so (i.e. I must have been carried by my teammates for some battles)

Just proves it's the driver not the tank.

Great job by the way.  I would be happy with just a little pen buff. This tank plays great in a defensive role.

Ever since I got this tank it has been nothing but a disappointment. It is by an large one of the reasons (besides 3.8 and general player idiocy) that I will never make another purchase of any kind. After Paying the little $$ I was missing to win the tank one would think you would get a tank on par at least with is-3. NOPE!!! From day one it was a flaming ball of death that couldn't pen any heavy and some meds. It has NEVER been enjoyable to play as it can hardly pull its expected wieght.. Now it doesn't flame ( though it is indeed limp) but still is shooting the same worthless ammo. When you can't pen an STA-1 and that tank can take you out you know it is trash. I play it once in a while just to see the chances - horrible, miserable, i would just sell the dang thing but it reminds me what A holes WG really is. Sell you a lemon and think it is ok. WG bites!!! Glacial Bites!!!! All your Events are wastes of time.!!! I only play to waste time as this really is a time waster!!!!! I would ask for a refund but I am sure that cash went to Light up the night in some Russian bar on the g-sting of some dancer.  WG doesn't nor will they ever care about their product!!!

 

Hull down really means you better Hide the whole tanks except the turret which you should never stop moving or else it is easily penned.

Side scrape means - you will be soon exposing your weak spots so prepare to take major damage!

What else would one expect coming out of china - a knock off that falls apart and has no real value - just eye candy with no bite!

The only good thing about the tank is when it is on the RED'S side - game over - almost a sure win - I love to rip Glacials apart!!!!

 

 

Edited - minor changes
