IS-7 Replay Review Requests

Recommended Posts

Digging a hole with this tank.  Put it away for a week and pulled it out today only to get beat down twice averaging 3500 dmg.  Need help learning to win with this tank because so far it's not happening. 
 
Any advice on how to play it better would be awesome.  Both these games I got damage (early 1st game, garbage dmg second game) but they felt poorly played. 
 
First game I take mid South Coast with a BC.  We control it and just have just a M54E1 blocking us but I assume plenty of TDs backing him.  Get a shot in on him and a shot on an E50 then decide to move up top.  BC for some reason heads off to the East rather than push the E1 and a T95 shows up.  
 
I tried to go face hug a 268 who apparently laughs at IS7 hug but dies thanks to some help (note to self - don't hug TX TDs).  Our East is lost so I back up to help the 95.   This is probably my biggest mistake.  I thought the East would have pushed already towards our cap but they're still hanging out.  I let the 50 hit me and then the 54 gets me from the side. 
 
 
Second game was Pearl.  I was late spawning and a pair of E5s had already moved to my preferred spot mid on hill so I head around the flank where a Maus was going to support.  Figure a Maus/IS7 can hold if not push that pretty easily.  
 
I meet an E3.  Get a lucky pen on his top and then our special Maus driver decides to get between me and the E3 - one of the few tanks that can basically ignore his armor on the map. Since he's completely blocking me and our E5s are already dead I head back towards cap to defend but the game was already over.  I get some garbage damage before the mediums flank me.

I have some replays on my thread from recently. I also have some more I can send you if you wish.

 

I try to play the IS-7 a bit more aggressively than my other heavies. It has really troll armor, and hull-down is highly resistant to even T10 TDs. Pushing up to a nice spot with the LFP covered is a good start, and play it from there.

Thanks.  I'll take a look at them.
