IS-2M 2018 | Forum

So, the IS-2M is for sale as a "preview" item. I have premium time from getting some "little" tank bundles, and so I saw it in the shop while grabbing screenshots of the FCM 50T bundles. I presume we haven't heard much about it from the Community Contributors thanks to their Non-disclosure agreement; this thing is technically only for sale to "premium" members, so it probably won't get a full shake down until it goes on sale for everyone tomorrow.

The IS-2M is a tier 7 Soviet heavy tank that, at a glance, looks very much like an unpainted IS-2 from the former Berlin Quartet, but WOT assures us there's more to it than just not having the Berlin camo.

Brilliant, so this is to the IS/IS-2 what the T-34-85M was to the T-34-85. I guess I can't fault the logic there, the T-34-85M is a lot of fun to play. But, the T-34-85M was free if you completed missions... how much does the IS-2M cost?

Top bundle is $78 for the "War Chest" version, while the others are $54 and $48 respectively.

The "stock" model is one of the more affordable ones, at only $30 for a heavy tank. Granted, these are the preview prices, we'll see where it "actually" lands...

Power creep at it's worst!

It does seem that way.

Alright, so about an hour ago WOT announced the sale, which rolls through the end of the month. Here we go.

The IS-2M is at the same price point as before, plus one bundle that includes both the IS-2M and the old IS-2 together for people who don't have either yet, but still want to part with $46.00.
