Slow down, learn all the basic tactics and learn to read the map and enemy team composition at lower-mid tiers, then apply what you have learned at higher tiers. Play about 50-80 battles more per tank on Tier V-VI, then 100 battles per tank in Tier VII. Don't just charge forward, shoot once or twice before dying, back to garage and rinse and repeat, but also analyze carefully after each battle what happened, what did you do, what the enemy team did, how both teams perform, what could be learned and improved from that battle, and sometimes even taking a page out if how the enemy team played could be beneficial.

Also learn situational awareness and always try and help your teammates if they can be helped.

IS-8 is quite a bad tier 9 tank (yes it's my opinion, feel free to disagree). Especially when you face tier 10s. The 258mm of pen is simply not enough. Also, let's face it, IS-8 armor is rubbish at tier 9-10. Most can pen you with no difficulty at all. Wanna flank to let your AP be more useful, yeah right, good luck with that speed. My advice: Stay with your team, go second line support because your armor is rubbish. Peek-a-boom and sidescrape if possible. This is the reason why I've temporarily decided to stop playing my IS-8, and have instead devoted many time to playing the Leopard PTA.

Speaking of which, Leopard PTA is sooooo much better than IS-8. Similar pen values, much better speed allowing you to flank, better RoF. Leopard PTA also has better RNG than IS-8. To date, I can confidently say that I've bounced more shots driving my Leo PTA than driving my IS-8.

Good luck. You'll need it.

Play it like a medium... IT's NOT A HEAVY TANK!

Hang on, IS-8 has 258mm of pen?

If I remember correctly E75 has 246mm pen but I'm fine with it...


A cheapsake's garage:

MS-1 (4 aces), Tetrarch, T2 Light, T7 Car, Pz.II J, BT-7 Artillery, Pz.S35 (1 ace), M3 Light, LTP, BT-SV, Pz.IV D, Hetzer Kame SPPz.IV Anko SP, Pz.III/IV, Kuro Mori Mine, VK 28.01, KV-2, AMX M4 45, Tiger II, Rhm.B WT, E50,  Jagdtiger (1 ace), E100, Jagdpanzer E100 (1 ace)

Hmm I actually have lots of garage slots

Ahhh, but the E75's gun might be able to hit where it aims . . .

Might? my experience has shown it to be otherwise....

All my equipment selections has been to improve the gun handling on the E75.. still if the gun behaved 95% of the time the tank would be too good.

Best tactic is to find a bush and camp . This works for most tanks .

Name of thread has nothing to do with what you wrote, typical WG player.

well said, my friend, oh, and also on the IS-8 matter thingy, i dont have it, but when one rushes me while im playing Ru 251, it scares the hell out of me, also, your front is good enogh to bounce most meds and lights gun in Tier 8 if you dont angle at all, and turret+tracks traverse is good enough to stop most lights and meds from circling you, as of heavies... (i don't actually play any heavies so im speaking from a light-and-medium view)
