IS-6 - Questions, Information, Gameplay

So i called it, i knew it was coming. Gaj saw my forum post and knew it was a great idea, instead of the IS-7 it was the IS-6 which is ok, we will reach the IS-7 in due time. So the IS-6, a powerful vehicle mixed with the IS-3, IS-4 and something else. The IS-6 is going to be LEGENDARY on the battlefield, i believe the tank is going to be 6.7 since the russians no longer have a powerful tank at 6.7, the IS-2 mod was there but it had weak turret cheeks and wasn't that competitive compared to the Tiger 2H (sla included) and the T-29(T-34 included). I can't wait for this tank, it has the strengths of all the tier 5 cold era tanks and none of the weaknesses. I think i may just preorder it, how about you guys? Leave a comment below saying if you may buy it or if not that then say how you think this will affect the game now :). Also please no fighting or whining saying its russian bias, that a easy way to get a strike. Any who enjoy my prediction i have bestowed on the war thunder world :good:

Why is it Premium??

xD Actually that question made me think, i was like "easy because.........." I think its a premium because its so powerful and good, same reason why the T-29 is not a premium. If it was spammed out people would whine like crazy about how they can't kill it. Now since its a premium less people will complain because its a rare vechile and not everyone can spend $40 on a ingame item

I'm aware, just saying it will go nicely in my list. I wear the Community Helper title now so neither will make an appearance. lol

 

Still might put it on once I buy it for a few hours, who knows? :D

What are the specs for this IS-6?

Not sure but the front hull is 100, so i hope its slopped at 75% or something extreme because 100mm is not that much :beee::facepalm:

xD the Tiger 2H needs to be takin down a peg anyway, its spammed out way too much. Hopefully the IS-6 will discourage that.

well WoT has inaccuracies with the Armour modelling, namely all the fantasy double mantlets with 900+mm EA.

 

so while a nice little rough idea, not necessarily a guarantee of what to expect from WT.

So will this be the new tank to take the T29/Tiger2H P2W crown?

Its not P2W, also please don't use that term i can't take anyone serious that calls war thunder P2W, when its a F2P company that has to make money somehow. Its a tank, it can die like any other tank.

as someone more likely to fighting these things, I suspect the shot trap will be the bane of this vehicle.

I don't see room for a shot trap, i see the shell bouncing, bouncing again and being a ricochet. I hope the tank will be the King of the battlefield wreck all that oppose it, but i have a feeling its pen is going to very poor :( . Even if it does have poor pen, i can still make T-29/Tiger2H drivers look like this ":018:" every time i peak xD, also does the IS-6 have turret stabilization or whatever its called,  i can't find any historic information on this tank( I haven't searched hard  but still).

well to be fair "it can die, ergo not P2W" is not a very good argument.

 

arguably this game has enough depth of play and enough avenues to counter and to be countered (in combined battles) that there are not many places for a vehicle to really be completely abusive without consequence. of course this is not to mean that a vehicle can or cannot be OP, but that in this game there is a greater level of counter play.

 

 

I would argue in the past we have seen vehicles brought about for purchase which were heavily inbalanced and were in need of fixing and I do not think that right now such a thing is not possible to happen. I would argue that this is not deliberate P2W so much as poor standards of balancing or lack of awareness on the side of developers to the full extent of abuse a vehicle can have.

 

I say this because they do not exclusively make such balancing errors with premium or buyable vehicles, and have done so more consistently with non premium vehicles in the past. to say that the game is P2W by simply pointing to an unbalanced or abusable premium is simply a double standard or deliberate neglect of the fact that poor balance affects both premium and non premium vehicles.

 

 

 

I would agree WT is not at least deliberately P2W, or rather, whether or not WT is P2W is not really that important compared to the fact this game is pay to grind, which is by far a greater issue.

Speaking of which, the russians need good Anti air artillery, but i'm sure a IS-6 would be able to easily get away from any bombs, they would see the plane and move to a safer location(or areas that only pilots playing on min could see where the IS-6 was hiding at)

Well said-ish, but when it comes to people like that i don't try to argue, they are just unreasonable. It would be like trying to explain to a kid, why they can't have cookies and junkfood for dinner. You could try to explain but the kid(depending how disciplined or taught) would say "what about Johnny his parents let him eat cookies for dinner".  Certain things i can argue for, while other things seem pointless to try to convince others of. Its like the whole PC vs console thing, we all know PC is better(way more utility) but a lot of people can't be convinced for that.
