Total waste of money. Absolutely useless. I own a lot of premium tanks and have never wanted a refund. This one I do, but unfortunately, if you use it even once, you are stuck with it.

It's a good tank. Don't be passive.

What did you expect? It's a premium version of the tier VIII tank pre-nerf. The tank is better than the current ISU-152 that we have, but yeah it's not a great tank, it's only a big boomstick at tier VIII with a crapplatform.

while it is better in some areas it is worse in others.   so its not exactly the same as pre nerf

I'm sure it will be back no later than Christmas box season. We'll know by then if it is the next Skorpon G or second runner up.

It is strictly worse than the tech tree ISU in all ways other than penetration... and the penetration is mostly irrelevant anyway, because 260/292 is fine for a tier 8 TD.

Sure it's fine, but I'd take 750 alpha over 700. Just one shoting tier VI or a tier VII td is just so much better than leaving it at 65hp.

The tech tree tank also has 750 alpha. So... not sure what that has to do with anything.

What can I say? Don't expect your result in premium clone to vary too much from your score in tech tree variant ;]

Is this the tank that WG said was returning to the game that they took away?  Makes no sense if this is the case.

I think it's solid. Not necessarily better than the tech tree ISU but not everyone has that and it's not necessarily worse either since more pen translates to doing more damage.

And even if you do have the tech tree ISU and love the gameplay, you may want to pick this one up to play long term because it gives better credits and crew xp

 

Speaking of the last point, I'm thinking that it's a good idea to sell clones of existing tech tree tanks, but with the premium tank advantages (more credits and crew xp)  Buyable only after you've unlocked the base tank that it clones, and you can't claim that it's overpowered since it's statistically identical to the tech tree tank that everyone has access to.

 

So ISU 152K is not overpowered (and that's a good thing - no one likes pay to win) and with more credits and crew xp.  Some tanks offer nice quality of life improvements and are newbie friendly but are not necessarily pay to win, like the Skorpion G.  People are willing to pay for quality of life improvements even if it's not necessarily OP

The gun on this tank, not the tank.

I like the ISU-152K. The troll cannon is back where it belongs.

Are you FN kidding?  Took the BL-10 away because it was too OP, and then sell it back for $60.  Not a chance in hell.

This. It wouldn't even be that OP anymore if they hadn't nerfed it, because of the never-ending power creep.

You do see that on the map it is identified as an ISU-K -- which really translates into I SUK
