Owned one for a while now and stopped playing it long ago. It used to be good, but with MM changes and power creep it can often be frustrating to use, and I don't want to play a game to get frustrated.

Not worth it with that ridiculous bundle, for the price of that useless tank you can get the T92 light or some tier 8 med...

WG 2018 - "Preferential MM tanks are the root of all evil, not our idiotic 3/5/7 system. We'll get rid of them to improve the player experience"

Also WG 2018 - "Here, have this Preferential MM (yet another if a few weeks) tier 5 that used to be decent until 3 years ago, and in a stupid bundle. That'd be 25 €"

The tanks itself is a lot of fun. However the amount of fun you have in it depends upon your opponents, if they know where to shoot it you will get wrecked, fortunately most players can be trolled into shooting other bits of the tank instead, if that is you know what you are doing. Like the Churchill III and the Excelsior the gun lacks pen and alpha (the latter being made up for by RoF) so it can end up being a credit sink especially if you have to load the gold ammo for tier 6 enemies (even Matildas can be a pain to deal with). All in all this (unlike last weeks feeble "Gem") is a good tank and worthy of the Gem of the Week tag. However................

 

1. It is horribly over priced in this bundle. Anyone looking for a tier 5 Russian premium Heavy, my advice is buy the Churchill III. I don't mind WG putting up bundles but only when they give you a "just the tank" option as well.

 

2. It's a pref MM Tank and after the whole KV-5 business putting any pref MM tank up for sale should have been a big no no.

Another fine kick in the nuts for your customers.

saying you’re going to remove PMM under false pretenses, and look, selling yet another PMM tank.

 

some people would consider this outright fraudulent, selling a tank with a key attribute you full well know you’re going to remove ASAP..

 

I am beginning to wonder if WG EU have criminal intentions as they certainly see us in a deplorable light, much like thieves would of of their victims they seem good at ripping us off, has the russian mafia taken over the running of WG's?

If someone buyed, check the amount of gold u got.

if u just got 2100 Gold take a screen and force WG for a refund of 2900 Gold because they sold it with 5000 Gold in Shop.

Tbh... it was bad then as the old meta had run past it even then. If it was 2015 it would have worked still at least. Now, or even last year? I would never have recommended this then.

I just bought it because i wanted it so badly bacause it is rare for me.

 

Now let's tell the truth about it so people can see this is false advertising.

 

Block Quote

 The Collector's Gem of the Week is the KV-220-2. Boasting extremely tough armour, this big boy is made to push the front and crush the defences of your enemies.

 

False. Everything and everyone will penetrate you left right and center no matter if they use normal or gold at you. Angling armor do nothing and sidescraping do nothing. O-I, kv-2 and rest of the guys will eat you for breakfast. People know weakspots and they always use it. Turret is weak AF.

 

Block Quote

 When it comes to armament, it doesn't need to hide, either – its 76 mm gun will make short work of most tanks it will meet.

 

Gun is at best one big "meh", reload is ok but if you want to penetrate anything be prepared to use gold only, with stock ammo you will have a bad time.

 

Block Quote

 Just make sure you are close to the action, and the KV-220-2 will serve you well!

 STAY AWAY FROM CLOSE COMBAT. This is not true, you can't go in front and bully. It will not serve you what so ever in front.

 

 

Do not buy.

10kGOLD worth 35 EUR + 30 days of premium account worth 10 EUR + KV-220-2 and that all for for 50 GOLD. Even if the tank is crap, some ppl may just want to buy it for 5 EUR, if they can use the gold and premium acc days.

I am not going to do it, but don't get excited too much here, dear friends, it is about wasting of 5 EUR for putting something well \known to the collection...

Would've bought it a year ago, now no thanks.

 

I don't believe in WG as a company anymore. I don't believe in a long and a fun future with WOT when WG is leading the game so yeah... No thanks :)

#walletclosed*

 

*And I don´t care anymore how you respond to your PMM-debacle. You took too long (and people are still waiting). Your radio silence on th eharsh but totally justified critism regarding your approach to matchmaking and the change of some premium tanks is for me the last proof that your not giving a single sh*t about anything but money. And in the process you´re happily screwing over your long term loyal customers for the sake of extra profit. You´ve invented this matchmaker with the purpose to sell premium tanks that are strong or even op on paper but struggle in the real battle meta because you purposefully let them fight way stronger enemies all the time.

 

Your are not a company that can be trusted upon anymore. And each day you´re not acknowledging that you have done something very wrong and finally respond to this with eating alot of humble pie AND fixing the matchmaker in the process is cementing this for me. Thanks for ruining a decent game with your greed, stubbornness and your flatout *edited*.

Lol the wargaming official wiki says

 

  • Has preferential MM, tier 6 is the worst you'll see ( Its hull armor is still very tough at tier 6, just be more wary of your"

I'm not sure what you have to be wary of, maybe it's wary of your purchase being a scam?

It's not just about the tank being bad or not. I've purchased questionable tanks in the past (scorpion comes to mind). It's more about that i'm getting fed up with the latest trends in WoT and i'm sceptical about giving them any more money.

No idea what you are talking about.  It has preferential mm so never sees tier 7.
