I already have the 277 and it have the same gameplay I think.

The only thing that I really hate is the pen. 250 standard and 303 gold. Whereas 265 standard and 340 gold for the 277.


But overall, the IS-7 armour is so much better.

Also, the tank is somewhat more mobile and the gun is ok-ish now.



I read your opinions on the IS-7 on the current meta.

No you should get a Manticore instead.

^^^^^^^^ Manticore is the best tank in the game period.

If fact it's so good, next patch it will have less gun elevation and ammo.  Down to two crew members as well.

Yes....get the IS-7. It's a Russian tank, so it's due for an OP buff.

The duck 40 is even better. Balancing factor is the tier it sits on. Imagine a duck in tier X, outspotting every other light, getting in possition much faster than the ebr's...

Well, they already "buffed" it, so I doubt it will get another buff soon

Just like WG.  They are going to nerf this one but refuse to nerf the clown cars?  How  hypocritical can you be?  Please don't try to tell they already nerfed clown cars.  No they really didn't do anything that you can actually count as a nerf.

they're not gonna nerf the manticore as far as I know... this has all been sarcasm in case you couldn't tell

 

also a nerf is just a reduction of parameters, they nerfed the cars, the argument that they didn't is stupid. The correct argument is that they didn't nerf them enough, which I would agree with

Sir, I highly recommend to get off the internet and never come back if you can't recognize sarcasm. ASAP.

I’ve had a FV4005 hit my turret for 0 damage with HESH in my IS-7...the turret is stronk indeed (it has happened twice, I’m not sure exactly where that spot is, maybe the mantlet because the gun doesn’t get damaged). The gun works well on tier 8 and 9 but it can be hard to use in a tier 10 match. Then again, you’re much better than I so I bet you can make it work. The IS-7 was my first tier 10 and I recommend it.

But it's "Russian". It always deserves to get buffed.
