    IS-M - Is Serb > Murazor?

    I didn't find a thread for this tank so here goes. I've only played a few games in it so far and I refused to play it stock because lol 175 pen in tier 10 games nice meme. I'm not really going to go over the stats because you nerds can look it up yourself, I'm sort of looking for other people's thoughts and impressions on the tank itself. Do you like it? hate it? think it's mediocre? Why? Against tier 8's, it's hilariously good. The side armor is too thick to be overmatched by anything and nominal thickness tends to negate the damage you get from HE spam (which has happened to me twice). It's hard to over-angle when side-scraping since the extra T H I C C gives you a lot of wiggle room. The curved shoulders on the front are pennable if whoever you're fighting can aim for them, but there's a sweet spot angle that lets you both hide the shoulders and still poke your gun out around the corner, while bouncing everything that doesn't have 270+ pen. Turret is pretty strong and can bounce some crazy shots, and the single weakspot (the cupola) is so flat and tiny that hitting it is more dependent on prayers to RNG than on careful aiming. You can pretty much ignore any tier 7's or 6's that aren't derp guns or behind you - I've had full side-on shots get bounced before from tier 7 heavies and the like, so even if you're in the open just angle yourself a bit and you're p much good to go against lower tiers. This was my first match in it and all I did for 80% of the game was sidescrape off a building across the bridge in the south: In tier 9s, it's... okay. Against dumber players in 9's you'll generally have no problem baiting shots into angled side armor - the lower plate, of course, is butter, and anyone who knows to aim for the shoulders will ruin your shit and probably set you on fire, but the tank is new enough that it's not a huge issue yet. Otherwise, I generally found success by watching the flanks for our bigger guns in brawling zones and bullying lower tier heavies or keeping higher tier heavies constantly turning their guns to deal with me. Tier 10s are generally crap but that's standard tier 8 tank matchmaking for you. At least there's 7 tier 8 tanks on the enemy team to beat up on. I don't have a real strategy for this yet since the thing is too slow to face off against mediums and the armor doesn't work against most tier 10 guns unless you're lucky or the enemies are bad - generally I just play it the same way I do in tier 9s, but with a more conservative and cautious approach. My main gripe with it is that the mobility is a little low - but I guess that's expected with the amount of armor it has. It generally does reach its top speed on hard terrain (which is like, 35kmh i think) but you won't be keeping up with mediums or anything. Oddly enough I haven't gotten shot enough to get set on fire a whole bunch yet, and while the gun depression is as bad as expected I knew what i was signing up for with a rear-turreted tank. For crew skills, I don't have them memorized right now but I have a fairly new crew in this - I think it's Sixth/snap/ORD/safe and then working on repairs. Equipment loadout is Rammer/Vstab/Vents, I carry 20 AP/8 APCR/2 HE, standard consumable loadout of medkit/rep kit/AFE. Oh, and for the past week I had two 1500+ base xp games and that wasn't enough for an Ace. Fun stuff, clearly people out there are having a lot of success with it so far. What do you guys suggest for crew skills in the future after BiA and repairs? I chose ORD just so I can get to the brawl slightly faster, but would clutch braking be a better choice? Does it get set on fire frontally often enough to make taking Preventative Maintenance an option? How do you tend to play it in heavily tier 10 matches, or on maps where the gun depression or lack of hard cover works against you? e: lmao 504 error when I tried to post - now I understand how people keep double, triple, or even quadposting their new threads. RIP

    For 1.01, what's better for HT 15.3, S Conq or Maus?

    Definitely true - I did this maybe a week or two after it was released

    I unironically did mine in the IS-M (in full tier 8 MM of course) I mean technically it was HT-12.3 but it would've qualified for HT-15.3 too.

    T-34/100: All the 'Meh'

    This tank is fucking garbage lmao If it's gonna be this slow it could use an armor buff or a gun accuracy buff. I don't even care about the pen, I can work with 175mm pen at tier 7. But for fuck's sake there's literally zero reason for this to have the armor, speed, and size of a barn and a derpy as fuck gun

      Don't worry as you can see Ivan and Vladimir in the background are discussing on how to fix these problems for you. WG working as intended

      Yeah, I don't understand why there can be so many tier 10 tanks in the queue and I still have to wait for several minutes every single time. Something is screwy with the matchmaking.

    How to balance the 268-4?

    nuke the armor or nuke the mobility. That's literally it. It's absolutely retarded that it has both

    T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    Haha oh shit that was you? I remember thinking to myself I was gonna get counter-blapped when I crested to take the shot and I had to repair my tracks and suffer a broken ammorack for the next 90 seconds... You guys won though. I did blap your heretic T49 for 850ish but i couldn't finish him, was too low health because some motherfucker rolled 900 on me in the opening 45 seconds of the game edit: tfw you roll higher than the other guy https://gfycat.com/FamiliarTiredGossamerwingedbutterfly for HD also i can't believe our heretic dove you, died, and didn't even finish you off what a garbage misuse of a T49

    And just to keep in the theme of complaining about pubbies that every other status before this one was doing, we lost this game like 15-3

    The Untold Truth about the Somua SM

    I guess? Hopefully he'll actually weigh in on it when he's not busy being on his own diet of cough syrup

    The Untold Truth about the Somua SM

    @Trobs has this tank and he describes it as if a Lorraine and a 50 100 had a baby and the baby had cardboard armor plates strapped to the paper hull.

    Object 268 version WTF were they thinking?

    Tfw I play arty sometimes and focus these tanks exclusively until i don't have a shot or they're dead (or I'm dead) and I realize that cancer is the new chemo

    T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    Personally, yeah. Vents/Vstab/Optics + Cola is what i'm currently running and I've never thought to myself "Gee i would much rather have a 1.8 second faster reload instead of being able to outspot enemy light tanks at 400m+". I've found that counter-scouting by simply popping their sixth sense and making them break off before they can spot any of my dudes (or me) is far more effective than having to use my gun to do it.
  20. i had this guy on the enemy team today. He camped base in a WZ-111-14 on Abbey, did 0 damage, got 7 XP for the match. I only recognized his name because of your post. He wasn't even afk, his turret was turning and his tank moved a few times... but he didn't fire a single fucking shot.

    IS-M - Is Serb > Murazor?

    I'll be honest, I've considered re-buying it and trying to do HT-15.3 with it

    T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    No such thing as overkill for viewrange IMO.
  23. Had some fella from THUGZ named antisniper in a match today while I was grinding out SPG15.3. Load in, he immediately says that the next three arty match he gets he'll TK all three (which is understandable I guess). Sure, eat a ban, why not. Then he sits in the spot I was going to fondle myself in for the first 8 minutes of the game (A9 on Murovanka south spawn) and doesn't leave until it's like 4 enemy tanks left and we've clearly won without his help. He did like 1k damage total. didn't THUGZ used to be a somewhat decent clan? On the other hand I did end up getting SPG15.3 that match

    Object 705...thread

    I haven't played mine yet mostly because I'm waiting til i can buy gold to not play it without the top modules. I haven't heard great things about it - the IS-M is supposedly better for its tier and the fact that this thing's side armor is 90 and the IS-M's is 120 seems to make that opinion more true than not... but I'll let you know again when i actually give it a few matches
