IS3 is the only really great one in there. IS has a great punch, but no armor and terrible accuracy and reload. If you can make one miss you can mess it up. T29, though, you wouldn't want to try that.I'd argue the IS series is easier to play until tier 9. The american series require knowledge of maps and where you should go and not go, because if they're not hulled down they're free kills. The IS, and the IS 3 are both great tanks in their tier, though it tapers off after that with the mediocre IS8 and the terrible IS4 and IS7.
IS8 is terrible for a T9 because it cannot carry. It has to play support. Since it often ends up as the top dog on your side, you can't do what you need to do, which is anchor a point. Especially not compared to an E75 or M103
