    IS-3A - Fair and Balanced edition

    I run food with it and the gun still feels miles worse than on the IS-3, which can out snap almost everything in tier thanks to its inexplicable .8 turret bloom. The 3A has .15 base which is almost twice as bad as the IS-3, and has a quarter worse movement bloom. That means while I can play much more aggressively in the IS-3 since I can reliably damage your opposition on the move and flex faster, I actually end up reining in my aggression in the 3A since I can't count on hitting my shots unless I have at least two loaded. That's not to say the 3A isn't good or too good, just that playing it is not as braindead as it looks like. Since the gun is a blunderbuss and the chassis is kind of sluggish, it actually takes a modicum of finesse to make the most out of the tank. It IS head and shoulders above most other heavy autoloaders in tier, but tbh other than the Somua it really hasn't any competition. IMO it's better than the Defender in good hands but much worse in bad ones. However tier 8 doesn't really need more autoloaders and this makes tier 8s even more cancer than it already is - imagine playing a Tiger II or T32 in 2018. Also bear in mind I play on Asia with the good MM so it might be easier to work around the gun's derpiness than in good ol 3 5 7.

    IS-3A - Fair and Balanced edition

    I feel like the biggest reason to be pissed off is that they literally only buffed it back to relevance (and beyond) for the sole reason that they could put it in lootboxes. Broken tanks are nothing new, but tanks that are intentionally broken so you can gamble on them are a new low even for WG

    Tier 8 is becoming more and more like tier 10 with every new patch: You gotta have: big gun, no fun (srsly su-130 spam is aids) retarded (turret) armour (250 EA or btfo) -7 gun dep (micropositioning is sooo 2013) high pen (~220 pen) armour that resists high pen (~250mm) gold spam to pen said armour (~260mm or above) armour to resist said gold pen (autobounce, Chrysler, or Defender) unspottable camo gods autoloaders moar autoloaders HE does moar damage wat is a generalist?

    SU-130PM - Ruski Scorpion G

    Feels more like a faster RHM with a worse gun than a Soviet Skorpion Also the gun is in practice less accurate than the 53TP's 122mm and another similar guns and is generally unreliable. Best success I've had with it is to play it like a WTF IV with the 150mm.

    What affects mobility?

    I don't think it's HP/T, seeing as the IS-7 has better HP/T, same resistances, higher top speed, and still ends up stalling once it's past the 30 km/h mark, while the 277 rockets from 30-50. Wouldn't hurt to test it tho. @Jesse_the_Scout Another example of weight not being a direct factor is the M4 49 which is faster than the 65T on almost all terrain despite being heavy, having a lower HP/T and what should be worse traverse. IMO there's probably some sort of coefficient for engine power that's designed to model for gear differentials/RPM, which varies at different speeds. For example the 277 would have a better low speed and high speed gear compared to the IS-7, while having basically the same mid-speed gear, which explains their difference in speed. Tanks like the 65T and 130PM would have to have worse gears on most probably every speed so that they perform magically worse than hard (and soft) numbers would suggest. Hence despite WG's claims that the SU-130PM's mobility is 'slightly better' ( it actually isn't.

    SU-130PM - Ruski Scorpion G

    can you look up how much pen the ap round has at 500m? cuz the Chinese 130 gets like 220 pen at long distance, the Polish 230ish while the German and Soviets get 240 ish usually.

  13. Some people delete their gacha game accounts and burn everything inside just in case to completely wipe the game off from their minds, despite probably having spent enough money to buy a Mercedes Benz with. Seems drastic to me too, but if you really feel tormented by a game, deleting it permanently is often the only good choice you have. IMO diversity matters. If you play like 3 or four different games or have 3 or 4 really engrossing hobbies at any given time you're unlikely to get addicted to any of them - just all of them at once. It's healthier than getting hooked and feeling bad over one shitty game, at least.
