so I just researched the kv-85 and i hated the armor, so I did some research and I found out that the kv-85 has the worse armor than all t6 heavy (although the kv2 has similar armor, but it has a super derp). although you might say that the kv-85 has a op gun and yeah that is true but even the t-150 has better armor.

so i wanted to buff the armor to at least t-150 amor

the ruskies has two heavy lines, a heavy armour slow line, the t150-line, and a fast not so well armoured line, the kv-85.

 

You are at fault if you have just now realized it

It also needs the BL-10 and 400m view range.

Why buffing to T-150 levels? The T-150 is the heavier amoured but slower alternative to the KV-85, buffing KV-85 armour to T-150 levels would be nonsensical, retarded and make the T-150 obsolete.

Kv-85 is a very good tank, you just need to adapt to its weaker amour but superior mobility.

You need a skill buff mate. Kv85 is faster than t-150. It can't be faster and have more armor. Also please don't tell me you are using the 390 alpha gun on the kv85. That would be super stupid since it has 800 less dpm than the 100mm gun. The 100mm gun is also waaay more accurate than the t-150 gun

i know that,

but im not talking about the line diffrences but the armor, although its rather good if the kv-85 is top gun but if your mid tier or lower tier those hp are gone fast not like the t150 and other t6 hvys have more chance.

firstly i dont want to buff it to t150's armor, i just want it to have a little bit more than 75 mm frontal.

it is quite fast but if you are fighting in a city map or at a valley like on lakefield it not that easy to use the mobility, the camo is not even good for sniping(if your mid or lower tier its actually good if your top gun)

so what do you advise me to do. should i play it like a medium or like a type 91 & 95 if it has good mobility?

No, armor is fine, you should play other lines if you want armor.

 

Rather buff gun depression to atleast -5 (and IF necessary slightly nerf DPM of 100mm). -3 dep is super annoying on tall tank with no armor, especially when every single other low-midtier has more than -3.

​KV-85 was a conventional KV-1S with an 85mm gun. That's all.

If you start to buff the armour of the KV-85, even by a little, then whats the point of the T-150 line?

The two lines are intended to be different in playstyle and aproach. In effect they are medium heavy tanks. I dont mind that.

KV-1s "KV-85" was faster variant in KV series (with lowered armor of course, less weight?)

So you're complaining about a stock tank...

 

This is exactly why WG shouldn't listen to the playerbase.
