The Pershing could use a slight buff in the AI department. Right now all heavies, maybe with the exception of the KV-2, are pretty much on level terms when it comes to sustained AI damage and kills/sec - some have more punch on a per shot basis (IS-2, Pershing), others make up for the lower AoE by greater rate of fire (Tiger variants). If the Pershing is supposed to stand out as an AI-focused generalist it should outperform its contemporaries by more than just the 5-10% it does currently.
That or a slight price adjustment would be a decent call IMHO.
Yeah except the accuracy of the tiger lets it randomly execute 5 models, on top of consistently bleeding squads
the is-2 at vet 0 is lucky if he hits the same sector where the enemy INF is, and the problem only gets solved at vet 2 (and with vet 1 ability). the tiger has considerably better accuracy than the is-2, better AT stats and what not, on top of facing largely less durable tanks. IMHO the is-2 is unreliable, the issue of having soviet units use abilities to mimic axis counterpart's effectiveness
The Pershing and Panther are almost identical in tank vs tank combat yet you're losing all the time lol.
IS2 has 340 armour and 1080 health, which is a huge defensive advantage over the Panther.
You are truly one of the worst players to ever play this game if you are consistently losing your heavy tanks in 1vs1 battles with Panthers.
Most importantly, good players use heavy tanks to bleed enemy infantry and as spearheads for their pushes - no one builds the IS2 to try to chase and counter enemy Panthers. That's what tank destroyers and AT guns are for. Please go back to the tutorial first.
the pershing being identical to the panther but costing 230 fuel isn't a good thing
the is-2 also faces the stat-wise best AT guns in the game, a panther can still leave an is-2 at dangerously low HP in a 1v1. You might win a 1v1, but even the slightest support for the panther and your is-2 will be forced to abandon any fight. even a p4 or single shrek squad can basically route the is-2
the is-2 is completely unreliable to deal with infantry blobs, the worst soviet heavy tank to do so in the soviet faction. otherwise the is-2 might be the worst heavy tank in general (for SOV), the kv-2, isu-152 (and even the axis counterpart tiger) are all better at doing their job (which overlaps with what the is-2 is supposed to do).
yeah, you can use the is-2 to spearhead, but the kv-1 does the same for way cheaper, and you can get more of them. unrelated, but pity the fool took armored assault and made an is-2 against the jagdtiger okw player
