  1. I didn't mind the challenger lol, it wasn't as bad as I was expecting, its a very good MT
  2. Wow so many down votes for having an opinion... Yes the IS-3 is a strong tank, probably the strongest tier 8, but I still don't think its "over" powered.
  3. That is a real possibility lol, also, after looking at the armor model again, the lower plate is stronger then I remember...
  4. As in a tier 8 clan battle or something? is that case no, and to that I can't really say anything, but with my experiences in random battles, its not that bad.
  5. Ok ok, I understand why you had HEAT loaded, I overlooked that the AK1 is an autoloader. I'm not just going by numbers, by my personal experience fighting IS-3's in the wild, I don't really have any problem with them. Also, I do own an IS-3, I like it, its a nice HT, but I have only played less then 50 games in it, so I'm not saying "Don't nerf my fav OP tank!" or anything. It's a powerful tier 8 tank, don't get me wrong, but I personally don't think its "OP".
  6. What gun was you using? The AK1 has 248 pen (320 with HEAT). That shouldn't bounce, must of been an extreme angle.
  7. I don't even think the HD remodel is OP, you can pen it with 175 pen from almost anywhere.
  8. I honestly don't see how the IS-3 is OP, 175 pen can get through the lower plate and a angled pike nose. There are many tanks that can pen it with ease, yes some premium tanks will have some trouble but they are premium tanks, just load some gold if you can't pen, you'll still make a profit. Even if the IS-3 is hull down, you can shoot it in the commanders hatch, the thin armor on its top, and there is thin armor just under the turret ring. The WZ-111 and the KV-5 have ALOT more armor, just saying.
  9. Can't you just install aslain's mod pack and uncheck the XVM map settings?
  10. When is SEA due for 9.14 update? we still don't have it. :look:

      I would brag but NA is only 1 step behind :feelsbad:

  11. Yeah, I have the IS-3, not sure if I like the pike nose, I'm used to driving German heavys and side scraping, not a good idea to side scrape in an IS-3 as it flattens out the pike nose and it sticks out around the corner. I have has some success reverse side scraping in the IS-3, but you lose gun depression. Ok starting to get off topic...
  12. Ah ok, most of the time when I encounter them I'm in my E 100, and Its AP can pen them when you face hug and look down, not so great at range tho lol.
  13. Would HEAT from a tier 9 even go though the front of an IS-7? I don't normally fire HEAT at a IS-7 from the front so I'm not sure, but its at quite an angle and HEAT gets no normalization.
  14. Yes they do (limits FOV), and they don't have any zoom, the periscope makes the most sense in game but I don't think many tanks had them.
  15. Sort of lol, as that is what it feels like, but the commander does have full 360 vision in is commander cupola
  16. Yes but in a turreted tank, you can lock your gun and turret and look directly behind you in sniper view, your gun is still pointing forward but your looking behind in sniper view.
  17. Would it even be legal? I might try and look for one tho, because turreted TD's have full 360 vision in sniper mode, why not our turret less friends?
  18. Just a question that has always baffled me, why do turret less tanks get a limited scope (sniper view)?, as in the scope is not 360 vision. I always have the habit of locking my turret with right click and looking around, even in sniper view, its a good way to see if you have a shot at something without turning the turret (usefull in E100 and Maus). Its a little annoying when i'm driving a turret less TD and a target is spotted to my side, I can't just go into my scope to see if I have a shot, I have to turn the entire tank first. Is this for balancing purposes?
  19. There isn't much more I can think of that hasn't been mentioned already, there are some youtubers who promote upping your game, Quickybaby being the first I think of, he also streams on Twitch. I am not the greatest tanker either, I used to be a lot worse, but my stats are slowly rising. One thing I got into the habit of doing is, whenever I have a bad game, I would go back and watch my replay to critic my performance, see what I did wrong and see what I did right in hindsight. And good luck building a PC
