I am getting plastered by these things.  In front on combat I have difficulty penetrating m103 and t110e armor while my drivers port guarantees they will pen me even at long range.  Even the e75 has the advantage over me except in urban maps or extremely close range.  I only find myself performing well in urban maps these days and find that I enjoy playing this machine less and less.  I am thinking of selling this thing when 7.3 comes out.  It's a shame since it used to be my favorite tank and I have over 200 games on it.  What do you guys think?

In a month, it's driver's port gets buffed as well as the weak shoulders. Keep it. It'll be back to form soon.

I love taking on and killing cocky is-4 drivers in my t110. Can't always be top dog. Even my t110 feels the pains of dealing with the tumor and huge lower glacis. Aim for the tumor, turret cheeks or lower glacis. That's your best shot.

Theres a big ol hitbox on the T110: The Cupola

Now you know what the players of the Tier 9 T34 felt. <_<

And if you cannot penetrate even the M103. I have to say, it is not the IS-4 or the M103.

Are you certain?  By how much?  I feel like this tank has been nerfed to the point where it is a very mediocre t9 heavy.

It isn't an accident that russian tanks are getting adjusted last.

Maybe a streak of bad luck. My IS4 seems to be doing well against the same tanks. I would hang on to it.

Stop complaining about the IS4 getting pwned by the T110. Once 7.3 rolls out, and you get the uber cannon on the IS4, you will be putting the T110s in their place. :Smile-playing:

just wait till next patch cuz the T110 is goin to get a nice little nurf >:) and i cant wait for it. that thing is like a tier 10 med. shoots almost as fast as my patton from wut my clan told me and it does shoot fast for a heavy. so all u T110 drivers get use to it being like it is now cuz when 7.3 comes out, no one will play it as much like the 50B.  :Smile-playing:

Agreed, definitely wait until after 7.3 goes live to make any decisions on keeping it.  I would be absolutely shocked and amazed if we don't see any rebalancing on not only the IS-4, but the M103 as well in patch 7.3.

I dont' share the same issues OP. The Tumor or lower plate on the T110 can be punched through.

The M103 is NOT hard to kill. LOL



I have very much been enjoying my IS-4. And in 29k exp I'll have the IS7.

Poor JTs :(

That being said I'm also currently owning IS-4s in my IS-3 so I can see how that'd happen. At the same time though I have to blame your engagements as I'm in general also putting out a lot of damage vs tier 9 and 10 American heavies though I attribute it to their bad driving. I finally figured out why they hate their tanks so much, it's the drivers. That being said they did nerf IS-4s last patch, you're probably best off driving something else til the patch. Personally I'm still farming creds for IS-4 but once I get it it'll be daily doubles only for it.
