Defender's LFP was nerfed to 130mm, so a lot of tanks can pen it now without spamming gold.

Effective armor or actual number of how thick the armor is? If it's that still is around 190mm of effective pen needed

Will WG ever have WoT offline like they promised?

I would say that the is6 is quite opsolete in terms of the ongoing power creep and the better prem tanks like the defender, patriot and amx m4 49 its gun has the second lowest pen of all t8 prem heavys with the kv5 having the lowest pen on its standard rounds the rof is decent for a soviet heavy its accuracy is not vad but not great aswell and although better than the defender on that scale the defender wil simply out perform the is6 on many levels it has the same mobility but much beter armour higher alpha and more pen so if i had to choose between the defender or is6 o would go for the defender for this reason

Because like the IS-6, the T34 is crap.

Hasn’t the IS-6 been rebalanced a few times? I think I recall a nerf, then a buff.

 

It’s tough comparing a tank no-one currently owns to one that’s been tweaked a few times.

 

For my money, I’d always side with the preferred matchmaking tank. No deathstars, waffles, or doom barns to worry about. Plus, Pref-8s are generally good money makers, and easy to find platoon mates for.

You can't make money with the IS-6 unless you have a premium account because 175 pen just isn't going to cut it. If you want to pen tanks and you don't have premium, 15K silver a game if you're lucky. Really terrible tank for earning silver but load gold and it's pretty fun.

situational awareness + positioning = wot

with all the uproar on the forums re the 252,maybe if you do not already have it the good old is6 is an option,just got mine out again and am pleasantly surprised, much faster reload,similar gun stats,quite nippy, and bounces a [edited]load of hit points,also prints silver,just an option,oh and only sees up to t9,what's not to love.:coin:

 

Short list of tanks that you just can't deal OR you have to use APCR when you meet them one on one with the IS-6.

ALL tier IX heavies. Almost all tier IX mediums and a few lights. (TDs, you don't see them with your view range)

E-75. Even with APCR you can't.

Tier VIII.

  • VK100.01 P <-- You can't pen this tank. Period.
  • IS3
  • IS3-A/Fatherland
  • Occasionally Tiger IIs.
  • Lowe
  • Obj 252U/Defender
  • T26E5/Patriot
  • T26E4/Freedom

 

The list is bigger. I use to have a text file but I was upset the other day an deleted it.

This thread should be a “please buff IS 6” ??

Or rebalance in game is required?

112> IS-6

 

All the IS-6 has is better RoF.

 

Still I use my IS-6 as a silver grinder and HE spewing tracker / harasser / late at night don't care tank.

 

Not seeing X is huge for a Tier VIII.  I play late at night and not being a hp pool for tanks with 1000 more hp than me is cool

the 252 will make a quick meal out of an is6...the is6 doesnt even have a chance to penetrate the 252...frontally at least..unless you snipe the cupola...good luck with that..:( the 252 is power creeping unfortunately. if you look at it like this it will make much more sense

 

is6 : tier 7.5

obj 252 tier 8.5 

 

its basically a whole tier up on it. even though they are in the same tier.
