Ok, so I have a really simple idea to make the kv5 better.

 

Do what they did in blitz. Add a second gun which fires APCR as standard, a new HEAT (or another APCR) shell as premium. However this gun has reduced rate of fire.

 

Let the consumer choose - More DPM or more pen.

 

This can also apply to other 'under-performing' tanks such as the IS-6.

What about all the SHOOT MEES on the front of the kv5 that is6 doesn't have . By all means buff the pen on is6 but kv5 needs way more than that seeing as it will no longer be able to reverse into battle.

I guess it would solve the problem of people that like PMM and people that want it buffed with PMM removal.

It could work IMO.

The second gun is a good proposal BUT with everything they want to change, it's now the least problem.

 

Removing the preferred matchmaking and taking armor from the rear is now a much bigger problem. At least for me.

Add a second gun

People have been suggesting this for literally years, sadly as it's a perfect solution WG have opted to do something stupid instead.

It is very hard to make tier 8 Pref tanks balanced. They MUST be weaker than TIGER 2 and stronger than Tiger P. => which is impossible. Tier 8 premium Pref tanks alrdy have tier 8 armor or 8.5.   112,IS 6, WZ 111 have more armor than Tiger 2 2. For example T32 have 198 pen on its gun and T32 meet JpzE100 FV183 430u and all other lovely tier 10 tanks. 

How much PEN u want on PREF tank so it will be balanced ? 

ALL pref tanks have ARMOR for tier 8 tanks, there is only lack of PEN. How much DPM you must have to get +1 - 2 MM ? And remember - that tank have to be FUN  TO PLAY style...

A choice of guns on all premium tanks would be a great option.

Added selling point giving more than one way to play the tank.

 

Still does not solve the problem with these tanks and the removal of pmm.

The idea someone floated was to let the pmm tanks just naturally fade away I rather like that.

 

First you buff the KV5 and later all the others.

KV5 owners have a choice keep your unbuffed tank with pmm or swap for the buffed version with normal mm.

All future sales of these tanks are the buffed versions.

No one gets their money back no one gets upset well apart from when pmm tank meets its buffed twin

 

Some owners would swap others would keep the pmm version.

But over time numbers would dwindle until the old pmm versions becomes a fading memory rarely to be seen and having no effect on the matchmaker "if they ever did"

 

Point is it does not take anything away from dedicated pmm tank owners while still modernizing all these older premiums.

If these tanks had an effect on the mm we should see some improvement immediately and then a gradual one as time passes.

You can keep the swap your pmm tank offer open so players have a chance to change their minds and upgrade after they see the buffed versions in games.
