I took my IS-7 out for a spin today, and I've noticed just how irrelevant the tank has become. It doesn't have the speed of the meds nor does it have the traverse it used to, so it just gets outmaneuvered. It also lacks the firepower of comparable heavies and TDs. Its armor used to be a highlight, now it seems to be unreliable. What reason do players have to play this thing? It just isn't fun to play anymore. Am I the only one with these thoughts?

Yeah that's basically what I'm saying. It's better to play a different tier 10 than to play the IS-7. That IS the problem,

I needed the mobility nerf. Still one of the most used tournament tanks because it is so fast and has such a strong armor profile. I think you are expecting the IS 7 to be easy to play and just run around bouncy shells with it. The truth is it's actually hard to play well because it has a weird combination of strengths.

WoT blitz is better than WoT PC imho because no arty and +/- 1 mm.

The armor on paper is really good, but I disagree with the notion that it's effective. The armor profile is so easily exploited by the enemy unless you're hull down, in which case you most likely won't be able to fight back because of the poor gun depression. The IS-7 used to have trolly side armor, but not anymore. I think they nerfed the spaced armor. It's just not a competitive tank from what I see, but I understand that I don't play it in the best way. I would definitely choose another heavy to play.

It isn't my favorite tank and I suck in it, but it wouldn't have been used at the worlds tournaments by PRAMO and PNCR if it wasn't good.

I think I'm going to sell it.  When I first saw it come after me at a lower tier, it was unstoppable, but that was before the nerf. By the time I got it, it can't even pen many X tanks and I'm if you use  Prammo it becomes a credit bleeder even with premium.   It was my first Tier X and now I'm sorry I used so much time to get it.     It is outclassed by all I saw today.
