I just got the ISU yesterday, free xp'd the bl10, and sucked so hard in three battles.  I played it like my SU152; short to mid range td, but I play like i have 1 hp. I still got schooled by 50 percenters.  Any tips?

 

On a positive note, i just got a 60%wr in my T54 mod 1, and just over 1500 average damage.

I usually like to start out as kind of a mid range/sniper hybrid. After I give it some time I then leave my comofortable little roost and start being a short/mid range TD like the SU.

The borsig is definitely better.

well worse dpm and can be he'd be a tier 1... only advantage it has is turret.  ISU also has better pen, gun handling, and dpm.  ISU's laugh at the borsig stats

ISU 152's scare my Lowe the most when they play at mid range- where I can only smack them for 310, and they can slap me back for 640 8/10 times quite reliably. Try playing at medium range early to mid game, and remember that you don't need more than 3/4/5 rounds of PRAMO. You're especially deadly late-game, when everyone's in hitpoint distress, and you can delete most people in one shot. Remember that you also have high HE pen (because Russian bias), so use that to your advantage as well.

You forget two very important stat that is always overlooked.  Bloom and camo.  Camo isn't even on the blitzstars page and the borsig bloom is noticeably less.  

 

You seem to be struggling a lot in the ISU from your OP.  You should try the borsig.

haven't equipped it yet, and it is about as slow as a dead snail... also the isu has better dispersion, top speed, dpm, and gun depression/ elevation.  even with the depression buff to the borsig it will have less depression.  ISU also has better shell velocity, and aim time.  Gets apcr as a pramo.  has about 70mm more ap pen. so far the only benefit of the borsig is the camo and the turret.... I think it is pretty clear which tank performs better.  Also, i have never seen a team use a borsig in a t8 tourney, but i have seen quiet a few ISU's.  The ISU also has a better overall wr and avg damage. 

 

Ok, I lost my first four games in an isu that is slower than a dead snail (i only have the bl10 researched), and has no equipment.  I am struggling because it is not at a point where it can be effectively played.

Everyone, please drive your Borsigs. Now, park them in the famous bush on Naval Frontier and I will definitely NOT be waiting to HE you in my ISU in the opposite bush.

I dig the isu especially with the big durp gun. The tricks I've learned is A stay hidden and B wait til the aiming circle gets as small as it will go or you'll miss your shot. So don't rush your shots just have patience
