Uhmmm.... Yeah. I haven't touched my kv4 in over a year. Played a game in it. Did damage with one shot, did 309 damage and I received my 3rd mark of excellence..... WHUT?!

How?? Is it a bug? Did the KV4 perform much worse then when I played it years ago?

Don't worry had the same experience in my jagdtiger these days...bought it back after a long time to play it again...had left it on 86% on marks when i sold it...after 11 games now...3 marks and had a couple of bad games as well...had 2 games...1 with over 8k combined...that one boosted me from 90,7% to 93, 20% or similar can't remember them exactly and the next one with around 7-8k combined boosted me to 3rd mark...easiest 3 mark ever.

Years ago, KV-4 was a good T8 tank.

Nowdays it is mediocre at best.

And not because it got nerfed, it is just that many T8 to T10 tanks have been buffed, especially those performing same role as KV-4.

 

In other words, huge powercreep.

But no worry, T8 to T10 is almost done balancing now.

Not to mention all the introduced premium tier 8 tanks, that are just flat out better.

 

It's hard to be a KV-4, when a Skorpion G can shave 30% from your hit points, by basically hitting anywhere on frontal armor.

It's because some tanks used to be viable back when the MM and the map rotation wasn't broken. 

I had the same situation in my jpanther, a jump from 84% to 92,5% when the stats refreshed following a year of not playing it. 

It's kinda useful to know how this works, as an example:

it means that if a lot of unicums stopped playing their Type 59s after the nerfs to the tank and back when golden ammo was for gold - it may be actually borderline impossible to 3 mark it now.

Can someone correct me if I'm wrong?

I did the same thing with my Crusader, had not touched it once after it became a medium, one game and boom 3rd mark. It was a good game but I think I had just recieved my 2nd mark when I shelved it.

Skorpion G is the last of your problem in KV-4. Some TD have better pen or damage.

The real problem are tanks like Defender and VK100, that perform the same role in an easyer way and Type4/5 that can simply remove you armour layout advantage.
