Löwe does nothing the T34 doesn't do and T34 is faster...

The T34 moves like a glacier. Not a premium I would recommend for speed or armor, thats for sure. The IS-6 is a lot more mobile but lacks pen.

It might be time for an upgrade to getting more video memory.
Yes, noticed that too. But it was quite obvious that ass soon they will start implementing HD textures and improving engine, memory usage (and overall system usage) will rise. The question is, how well they will do their job biggrin.gif

It is faster than Löwe and has nearly similiar armor to Löwe aswell (Strong turret, crap hull) so they both play exactly the same and both have strong guns which is what you need.

IS-6 has nothing really, weak armor, weak gun.

IS-6 armor is way better than T34, T34 only has a strong turret front. I can pen every shot into the top of the turret even with inaccurate guns at 200-300m, and it happens to me all the time when I drive mine. It really only works well when you can get on a slight backslope, but even then most competent enemies will just rush you because of the terrible DPM. Not saying its a bad tank, I love mine but the armor is so situational I don't ever consider it reliable. The IS-6 on the other hand can bounce almost anything as long as you know how to use it.

IS-6 and weak armor? You Sir must be joking. Now after rework of IS-3 it is most armored HT tier 8 tank. Even tier 9 tanks are having problems with penetrating it. Gun is also not so weak. 9.66s reload is insane with 390 avg dmg, and on tier 8 and 9 tanks even 175 mm pen will do, if you know where to shot. I'm saying this because i own IS-6 and it is briliant if used right.

As we are speaking about premium tanks. Any ideas about french premium med? I could use one.

Looks like we get 9.01 on Friday. I hope it fixes some of the serious issues I have been having (Continuous CTD, Lag, inconsistent frame rate)
Quote:
I want to update the community on the status up the next patch for World of Tanks. As you all know 9.0 is an update sets the stage for all the updates for the rest of the year. There were major functional changes that had to occur in this update to make that possible. This unfortunately led to some of the instability in form of game crashes and issues with framerate.

We have already identified some of the issues and currently have a patch in QA testing. It will address many of the game crashes and some of the framerate issues. We want to get this patch out as soon as possible without introducing new problems.

The current ESTIMATED timeframe for this patch is this Friday. It is subject to change depending on what is found by QA, but I wanted to make sure you are as informed as possible. If this estimate changes I will make another update. I will also update you if a second patch is required.

We apologize for the disruption this update may have caused you, however we look forward to the advances that this patch will allow.

Thank you all for your patience,

T34 > FCM 50t > Löwe > IS-6.
Atleast T34 and Löwe can avoid a lot of fire simply by going hulldown, IS-6 just dies patheticly everytime it shows itself because the armor is paper thin all-around basicly, even turret can easily be penetrated from the front. Only even remotely hard spot on that tank is UFG but there are always other places to shoot at so that is hardly a problem either if you lack penetration.

But the moment you said T34 is bad because "it only has strong turret front" (Exactly like Löwe btw) really made you look like you know nothing about this game.

IS-3 the most armored wat
It is propably the most easiest T8 Heavy to penetrate reliably, the paper thin hull and easy-to-hit weakspots on top of turret make it just way too easy to penetrate unless you are playing against total morons obviously.

KV-4 on the other hand has armor that can actually be called ARMOR.
T32 is superb aswell when played to its strengths with this "only strong turrent armor".

This game is nuts on a laptop....

I thought I could play the game with my laptop but obviously not. Lower resolution, everything low graphics, and I barely scratch to get 30-40fps. When there's big explosions and alot of tanks firing I'll have spikes of fps drop to like 2-3fps... GPU or CPU won't be at 99-100% anytime... this game is coded SOOOO BADDDDDDDDDDDDDDD. Its quite terrible how sad it runs... Consequently, my w8 is probably like a 500 right now because of how bad it is trying to play on my laptop...ugh...

I took 4 days off the game this past weekend.... I think I'll take another 4 off...

You don't even own any of the tanks in question, why are you posting about them as if you had hundreds of battles in each to determine their flaws and weaknesses?

EDIT: I looked up your stats and now I definitely see why you feel that way.
