Jesus, this tank just wants me to pull my hair out. Fully upgraded version does look brighter due to higher pen, more speed. Currently it feels like hell... firing low pen, low damage, 9 second reload and even then it misses quite a lot in long range.

Any way to relieve my pain?

No... unless free exp is an option...

The upgraded ikv90b is fine machine, even tho gun is derpy af. But anything before is freak circus, no acc to play sniper, no manouverability or hp to play close range peek-a-boom, lack of alpha too for that matter... Pain. Very very reliant on team, when elited little less.

No idea ... I just tromped through it on the way to a UDES.  It sits in my garage, crying quietly about how lonely it feels.  I'll probably sell it soon, a totally joyless experience.

Nope.  It does have good camo though, but other than that is entirely meh.  I only have 60k of xp to go before my S1 grils have a second tank to camp in :)

After almost 10k battles you should know by now that almost every tier 7 and some tier 8 are design by WG to be - force player to freexp or suffer..

I'll take the stock Ikv 90 over the stock St.Emil. As that's the worst stock grind on tier 7 for me. It's one of the few tanks where the stock gun is a downgrade vs the elite gun the lower tier had.

Aye it's a pain....

Never mind UDES at T8 is rather good, map dependant at times though.

Agreed. The low tier Ikea tanks are worth every minute of their grind to get the UDES.  That thing is more fun than a barrel full of monkeys ... and then the STRV .... OMG.  (I so love my STRV I gave it a custom paint job...

Yeah, use your personal reserves for grinding. Less pain.

In my experience ikv90b is still crap when elite. I've found tiers 5, 6 and 7 of that line are all very poor.

Thats what I am doing, I would be probably slamming my head against concrete if I had to play without personal reserves.

On reputation alone I free XP'd past it.  

 

Ask yourself if you have ever hated being against one in battle.

Well, I am kinda not taking this tank seriously anymore, just driving around like brain-dead works just fine.
