I don't recall the IS7 being changed much or at all recently. What you're probably talking about is the IS7 being power creeped on- and to that I would agree. However, doesn't disregard the fact that the IS7 has its uses and I still like it.

i think he's talking about IS-7 from 2011 time when it reigned supreme everywhere. the tank has been nerfed quite a bit since then especially the gun.

People always say that the IS-7 is underpowered.  This isn't the case at all. The only problem with the IS-7 is that it's near perfectly balanced.  Same goes for tanks like the OBJ. 263 and IS-4.  Tanks have become so ridiculously powerful they make all the balanced tanks look terrible.  And what seems to make a tank OP or just powerful?  The gun.  What does the entire waffle line have?  Nothing but a gun.  The T57?  The TD's?  The FV?  E-100? (think E-100 vs Maus.  E-100 trades armor for gun and wins hands down.)Something the IS-7 doesn't have that great of.  Or IS-4 or 263.  The IS-7 is NOT underpowered, just extremely balanced.  Tier 10 becomes more broken with every new line released.

I remember back in the day's of 6.8-7.4 where the IS7 was the tank to avoid at all costs. Now it's just more cannon fodder with less armor than similar ranked tanks and its abysmal amount of HP. Really? 

 

IS7 needs 300HP buff to make it more enjoyable to play in or play against.

 

So IS4 > IS7. 

 

Odd considering the IS4 used to be a Tier 9 prior to the IS7...

The gun is so unreliable, it's kind of sad. The E 100 with the big boy is a sniper compared to this.

I like the IS7 way better than my E100, at least now, in their current state. 

 

The gun is better IMO, just because it penetrates more consistently, with non-gold ammo, compared to the E100.  The E100 gun is way more streaky and unreliable. 

 

Both of the tanks get penetrated rather easily, though, it's just easier to hide the IS7.

playing my IS-7 more often now (On the track event)

and i'm astonished how Craptastic this tank has become, compare it to every other Tier 10 and it just pales, JUST PALES

 

[edited]pen, accuracy, armor doesnt hold as much as it should, its speed if fine, so is the sides, but when i cant pen a 50B with APCR 4 times ina row (i'm sure rng trolled me HARD there), something IS wrong with it.

actually armor is the only good thing on it, hide lower plate even a lil and you'll get a lot of bounces. but in firepower and mobility its a real dog. just lacking

Right now I'm glad I only spent 4.2 million on this tank for the On-Track event. Armor is the only thing that is decent. Its speed really isn't anything to write home about. Its gun gives up every other stat except for Alpha strike when compared to other Tier X heavies. The low HP also limits survivability. Not really seeing anything that shines about the IS-7.

I just sold off my IS 7 can't stand to play it any more at all; its been nerfed and other tanks have been buffed to the point its no longer really a tier 10 tank anymore its more of a tier 8 tank now.  Its just no fun anymore.

I'm not an expert player and I do not play in clans/teams/platoons, only randoms, but I find the IS-7 sufficiently good as is, not really needing a buff. It's my favorite among other tier 10s I have (E-100, Maus, T-62A and E-50M).
