Looking at the last replay.    First, the KV2 is slow so if you don't keep up with the battle, you will not contribute much.  With 12 minutes left, the B2 hill was won but you still choose to stay in place.   You take a shot at the IS3 and do 145dmg but that is not a ton of damage.  Still, you should be pushing around the corner more and putting the pressure on the team.  There is a Leo and Emil that would have more damage from one of your shells and they are just down the slope of the B2 hill.  When you do push, you go forward and miss your chance to come behind the T26E4.  From the front, you cannot brawl very well with that tank and there is not a lot of space with the Defender at the corner.  If you notice, that T26E4 gets taken from the hill by those tanks.  You should have gone that way as you could have engaged the AC48 or the meds on the hill.  With such low HP, you exposed your side far too long against the IS3 and AC48 but you got very lucky.  The second time you popped around, you weren't lucky any longer.  You should learn to sidescrape.  Also, you need to realize when it is a good time to push.  In this case, you could have supported the hill battle better.   Again, I'm not a unicum but these are my thoughts and observations.

 

I would suggest this video to avoid your destruction when attempting to engage around a corner.

Looking at the first replay in the list:  You choose to go to the traditional heavy area.   As top tier, you should be leading yet at 1335, you are behind the other heavies as well as a TD, LT, and MT.  You want to be the first to strike and get that critical damage.  Now that you are in the back, you won't get that first contact damage.  Your team spots the O-I but you continue to hesitate before the bridge.  At this point, the top tank on your team is not in the battle.  By the time you do go across, the lone TD was destroyed by the O-I since that O-I had no other targets to hit.  TD's support you but you weren't doing anything in the back, far behind the battle.

 

You finally engage the O-I and get a good shot on his side.  His attempt to sidescrape put too  much of an angle and you hit him good.  However, your angle might be too much as well.  Before anything else, you should realize that you are in an open area with a clear shot from the enemy arty.  They see the enemy top tank (you) in the open and quickly get a shot on you.  Again, you need to read and understand the minimap.  You focus on a target and suddenly  forget to 1) check your position and see if you are in a good one and 2) check the minimap for anything else that is going on (like the ELC coming up or the TOG in the middle).  You have no repair kits?  Your track is damaged and you didn't repair.   You got hit by arty again (we expected this since you didn't move) but you failed to engage the ELC in the rear area.  You were so focused on what ws ahead that you ignored every thing else.Even though you killed the ELC, he is the one who damaged your engine and effectively kept you out of the rest of the battle.

 

Especially when you are top tier, you need to lead and stay with the battle.  You are in the back too much and ignore the minimap.  The rest of the battle is important as well.   I think you fire about once a minute which is a low damage-per-minute.  This will not get you a win nor a high ranking in battle.  You need to be more effective in such a slow, large tank.  Do you play anything else besides the KV2?  If so, post some of those replays.

@EltvilleTiger thanks for the help man. It did show I had some problem with my positioning and map awareness, but i think I got better over the last matches, even though my aim didn't. Also figured out that the KV2 is a well not the best heavy, so I play now with better ranked tanks.

 

@TANKOPPRESSION you are a Edited and particulary toxic player with nothing useful to say. I asked for an opinion on gameplay and you come with a flame attempt and well hidden insult in your line. The community would be better off without you.
