So, first of all I dont get, how is a KV-5 with a 218 mm pen going to do anything in tier X especially with its mobility.

 

Secondly, why would you nerf a tanks side and rear armour when you are technically moving it a tier above. I get that they think that 30 damage + and 218 pen will do, with some minor front armour changes, but if you just nerf the sides and rear, the tank will become even less useless than it is now, because it was one of the best tanks I knew for side-scraping.

WG better buff this tank to be something like a Defender, to be at leas a bit playable when you get to tier ten, as now the KV-5 is useless even in the tier IX matchup.

I paid euros for this tank and I did not expect it to get compromised like this...

 

Your opinion on this?

 

P.S. I am curious how will they "Perfect" for example a JG 88...

In the marketing blurb it says u will be facing the fearsome t95 ( average frontal armour 300 mm ) ur 218 mm pen will be fine.

I would not be surprised, if after the pref mm changes they MM will go to +-1 tier. spread.

demand you money back. open a ticket that you are going to dmeand your money if these changes go live. and they have no option but giving it back to you. if enough people do that they might be going to rethink a solution thats actually feasable.

Oh yeah, that will fix everything. It worked so well the last time. Then again it can't even reliably pen the Defender, or most of the recent tier 8 HT's with it's current pen.. or the buffed pen. So does it make a difference? 

 

But KV-5 a HT that is 2x more heavier then even most tier X HT's. So toss on a spall liner and ram them for 600 damage. What's the issue?

You did. It's still the cheapest tier 8 HT there was "next to the Lowe before the price jump". And yet you want WG to buff it to something more then 2 times it's value. As you did not buy a Defender either tbh.
