Wow WarGaming.

 

I own both of these tanks, but you keep selling them making them more and more common!

 

Oh well.

 

Props to the good offers tho! :)

 

 

Have a Happy New Year WG! :D

KV-5 is back. One (or two) years ago it was in almost every battle, but now it is a rare tank. In the same situation is the Type 59.

 

Happy new year!

KV-5 just sucks nowadays so lot...

 

Behind mantlet no armor

Radioman has amazing 150mm armor, rear armor doesn't matter anymore because power creep... Oh and because it is so damn heavy it sees mostly just tier 9 matches.

I bought both of these tanks during the Advent Calendar offers and they are both fun tanks. I liked the KV220 straight away and always have fun driving it, but the KV5 is a much harder tank to do well in, I do think it could do with a buff.

Love the KV-5! Only thing that is sometimes a letdown is the turret armor, you already have a lot of weakspots, so when you hide them well and still want to SHOOT stuff you have to expose the turret which is too weak on the cheeks imho.

 

Totally recommended though, FUN tank to drive, prints credits and oh boy, nothing beats ramming tanks of the same tier for full hp :trollface:

For those that are wondering, the KV-5 is an alright tank, but honestly it could use a bit of a rework. The main problem is not its armour (which is reasonably effective) but the fact that it does require quite a bit of gold ammo to win games. Don't buy it if you are after a money maker, but if you want to have a bit of fun its worth it. Just make sure you platoon with it. Also as the traverse speed is pretty terrible so make sure you time your rams properly or you will literally drive straight past people.

So basically some of the two best deals from the advent calendar that were supposed to be "exclusive" are back onsale just over a week after the calendar ended?

180mm of flat plate will not bounce anything these days ... there are T6 tanks that can pen KV5s turret without gold  ... and no im NOT talking about weakspots

 

ramming mechanic is a mess too ...

 

people, do yourself a favor and do NOT buy KV-5 for the price that could get you IS6, FCM50T or JT88 ...

Unfortunately, this is true. Especially ramming part. I just had case when my KV-5 rammed enemy IS-3 in his side for ~300 dmg. It took some minor dmg, say 40. In the next game, I rammed enemy tank but this time IS (side ramming, about the same speed) and I took 300 dmg! With "comtrolled impact" perk. This never happened before last update. I had same weird cases with other tanks too. Full speed ram into Hellcat with my Panther and he takes 14 dmg???? Head to head ram into Leopard 1 with my BC 25t. He takes over 500(!)dmg and I took ~100???

It still bounces a lot but now there is much more tanks with insane pen that can punch through any part of your armor. Sidescraping  can help but not much.

KV-5 gun has very low pen but ROF is insane. You can easily keep your opponent perma-tracked.

Overall, I still enjoy this tank but driving IS-6 or JT is much, much easier.

hahahahaha.

 

Again the ""ultra-rare"" KV-220 on premium shop.

What it is... 6th time already?

 

Well i don't mind this at all, but I wish you would make the same "one time offer" for the Pz II J too. At least there would be more than one chance to me to get it. =)

I agree totally (... with loud hahahaha too) ... ultra-rare very special KV-220 offered again ...

What about the same approach for other rare tanks (not only Pz II J):  Tetrarch, BT-SV, Pz 38H 735, A-32, Pz V/IV, Type 59, M4A2E4, M6A2E1, SU-76I, etc. ... for reasonable price offered without premium account and gold.

 

Of course its a joke, WG has not listened to its customers so far, and won't listen again. Take my request as the last note ... before launch of Armored Warfare. I won't spend my life-time with totally deaf management and its disregard policy.

 

EDIT: interesting video about Armored Warfare -> link
