With all the new tanks you just don't stand a chance in a fight, some of us spend years getting it and thinking we have reached one of the best tanks,  then we are like what the he!!….screw all you trolls in advance

Yeah, out of all the tier 10 heavies, the IS7 is the one that needs to be looked at...

 

And screw you too.

I personally like the IS-7. I agree it is no 277, but it still performs better than a lot of other Tier X heavies. Try out any of the German heavies and you will see what I mean. The IS-7 has good mobility and armor with its only real down side is the lack of shell penetration for a Tier X heavy. I really enjoy it in Random battles, if you position the tank correctly you can bounce shots that a lot of tanks can’t. See y’all on the battlefield.

IS-7 is definitely one of the top five tier 10 heavies, all that armor and cupola-free turret are really awesome in pub matches.

 

The reason you think the IS-7 is bad has nothing to do with the IS-7. Not being able to do two shots of damage per game in any of your tier 10s is the reason why you think your tanks suck.

While the IS-7 is my best tier ten, there are two others I have that really could use some love: IS-4 and T110E5.

Yeah nah, it's still a solid tank when played to its strengths.

Exclude the reward tanks that less than 5% of the playerbase have. I'd also put it above the T57 personally.

try play defender and is-3 in tier 6 matches,is so fair.

Problem is matchmaking is sucks and wargaming does nothing,
russian bias are strong and wargaming does nothing too.

The IS7 needs to carry at least 5 more rounds of ammo. I have seen too many replays where players are doing fine just to run out of ammo. IMHO

E100 is trash. IS4 is trash. Several other heavies are lesser trash, but still trash.

 

and you want to address the is7?

SConq, WZ-5A, and Obj 277 are superior in most situations, but other than that, IS-7 near the top of the food chain for tech tree tier 10 heavies. T57, Kranvagn, 60TP, Type 5, and Maus are better in specific circumstances that aren't really all that common in the current fastboi meta. 113 is meh. AMX 50B is meh. Obj 705A is meh. AMX 54 is meh. E100, Pz VII, T110E5 and IS-4 are straight up garbage.

IS-7 is fine.
