  1. Hello forum! Just a quick straight question: do I research the good turret or do I use that xp to unlock the top gun sooner? I have of course the second gun (top gun of the IS) but there's a difference of 50 mm of pen and a good accuracy improvement. On the other hand I understeand that the top turret is a very important part of this tank for several reasons and it's quite cheap to unlock. I, personaly, would go for the turret. Is it ok? While we're talking of IS-3, I can't decide the 3rd equipment, the first two being rammer and vstab. I'd go for the gld to try and compensate the 3,4
  2. How useful 6th sense on HT? in particular on IS line. I'm grinding from KV-13 to IS currently and training my future IS crew for it in IS-2 got to 2nd skill and was planing to reset CM (with gold) to get 6th sense.. but posts like this http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/113531-is-crew-skillsperks/page__pid__1922843#entry1922843 make me doubt how valuable 6th on HT. On scout, TD it's no-brainier, on MT... I'd say same... but how about HT and not just any HT (e.g. long-range support like US T34/T32 or German Löwe ) but Russian brawler. My current Cre
  3. If you were to choose one of these tanks with the intention of completing the 8000 dmg mission, which one would it be? I have all the preceding tier VII heavies, but can afford only one tier VIII tank at the moment. Thank you for your answers.
  4. When tankers speak of the IS-3, I often see them talk about it being the King of tier 8 heavies, Great armor, a great gun, just in general a strong tank. I have a problem with this. I got the IS-3, obviously coming from the IS which I liked quite a bit. Blasting people around corners, not expecting many bounces, the usual. Disclaimer, I don't have the BL-9 gun, but it's not the having the fight tier 10s in a heavy with 175mm of pen that's the issue. It's the armor. . . I don't see it work. Time after time I see shots from tier 7s and tier 8s just go right through my upper frontal plate, the
  5. http://wotreplays.com/site/2238901#stats Close game, had it for a spilt second then the arty hit me and killed me. I know my gun handling was shit, could have autoaimed and kill the Tiger II quicker. Reckless driving in the IS-3 has done me many things especially very good games so I dont think that was to blame in this match. Mainly looking for the points on how I could have survived long by taking less damage. Thanks for all the future replies.
  6. http://wotreplays.com/site/2178395#stats So I had this game on Karelia. I thought I did good but there are couple of points that I know I could do better, I just dont know the better solution. Holding that flank was the right move, I think; but how should I handle the game if the one flank falls when I'm holding the other flank? My gun handling was pretty bad. How do you guys make sure to control your gun handling? Near the end, I turn away from base and head towards the RHM. Should I have gone the other way and possibly dodge the RHM?

    IS-3 Help

    So I recently purchased the IS-3 and I am looking for some tips has most of my games so far have been pretty crappy http://wotreplays.com/site/2154022#kharkov-adeadman1-is-3http://wotreplays.com/site/2154024#karelia-adeadman1-is-3http://wotreplays.com/site/2154025#serene_coast-adeadman1-is-3http://wotreplays.com/site/2154026#steppes-adeadman1-is-3http://wotreplays.com/site/2154027#kharkov-adeadman1-is-3All five are from the same session My basic strategy is always to find places where I can sidescrape, peekaboom, or just frontally face the enemy. I am still stock but I dont think the lack of B
  8. 384 battles and still no ace .I got the ace in the IS right after I unlocked the D-25-T(did 3.4K dmg which I'm quite proud of).My average dpg in this thing is 1166 and I have 1 MOE(current ratio is 66%).I just don't know what I'm doing wrong.Some haalp would be greatly appreciated.Replays are here: http://forum.wotlabs.net/index.php?/topic/21757-2nd-worst-player-in-the-worldneed-some-haalp/
  9. Hey Guys, So, I've played 2 games in this vehicle and hated it in almost every aspect, hence why i sold it straight away. I struggled massively with the pike nose because I kept getting my lower plate penned if i tried to use the nose, and penned everywhere if i angled it. I just need some tips on playing this vehicle, some replays to see how its done or just highlighting interesting vehicle tactics or situations the vehicle does well in. Also spots to play on different maps would be nice. Cheers in advance, Olly (aka Gunny)
  10. Hello tankers, I would be very grateful if someone more experienced could take a look at my replays. I am a new player with only 1300 battles under by belt, however I am trying to improve. Today I've played 4 nice games (no picking) and I'd like your tips on how to improve and what to change. Average WN8 is over 2500 over those 4 games (1500, 3000, 2750, 2650), which is very good for me. I am not posting worse replays intentionally since in these games I am able to identify all mistakes quite easily (not looking at the map, poor sense of surroundings and a bad positioning are usually the c
  11. This forum has been great to me, I must say. My stats have improved, slowly, but surely, I can see becoming overall yellow in the near future. But now I have a problem. So, I just recently got my IS-3, and so far, it's been ok. I can recognize it as a great tank, but not in its stock configuration. I've had my ups and downs in it with these past 28 battles, but up until yesterday I had a 50% W/r in it with 16 battles. Now its down to 42%. Yesterday I just got crappy battle after crappy battle, and I believe two of them were as top tier. Is there a way to influence a tier 10 battle wi
  12. A long time ago... in 8.8 (I think) I was playing some tonks, when suddenly a wild IS-3 challenges me to a fite, yo. Hilarity ensues.
  13. So, I just researched the IS-3 and T-44. I have a designated research path for the T-44. Free exp turret/enhanced suspension+mount ID10T gun->Tracks->LB-1->engines For IS-3 I am not sure. The upgraded turret is really good thing, but I am not sure if I should go for that or BL-9, or maybe an engine first. I don't have enough free exp to research the BL-9, unfortunately. Note that I have not bought these tanks yet, partly due to me not having enough creds for the IS-3 (enough for T-44 though), but mainly I don't want the temptation to play them yet. Also I would like any p
  14. Hey. I have a model of an IS-3, and would like to paint it. but I don't own an IS-3 in WoT SO, could you guys with an IS-3 please take some screenies of it in the garage from different angles and post them here? I don't mind if it has camo on it but would prefer the Summer patterns. thanks for the help ill see if I can post the finished model when its done.
  15. Yes I am taking internet tanks too seriously but if I can't do that here where else can I? TL;DR Version: I suck at high tiers I'm playing IS and IS3 for the first time for the next 500 games and will analyse more thoughtfully to hopefully speed up and embed my learning. Thanks to platooning with different people in the last few days, installing xvm this morning and a comment made by a tentacled chap in another thread I have come to an epiphany about me and internet tanks. I STILL suck after 4k games. I'm not terrible up to tier 5. Above that I'm shocking. The tentacled one, in
