With the today's collectors gem being the KV-220-2 I was asking myself is it worth the money. Since I don't remember facing one I have got a clue if it is. I am not looking for a seal clubber that requires gold spam, but stats wise it looks quite good. Does anyone own one, and tell me their experiences with the tank?

I was wondering the same thing.  I don't want to spend money on this game, but this tank seems pretty good.  I have 120mm of pen in my T28, and I failed to pen a gently angled side of one today.  Could of just been rng screwing with me.  The turret is pretty small, and 90mm of armour is still pretty good frontally.  What is Bulldog's WR in this thing?

I've got one.  It's got Tier 7 armour on it's hull but the turret sucks.  Anyone who knows the tank will go for the turret and ruin your day.  The standard ammo pen is pretty bad as well.  It is a seal clubbing, gold spamming tank but it's fun to play.  If your up against new players they will bounce of the hull all day while you either nibble away at their HP or ram them to death (if you can get the speed up).  All in all I'm happy I got it (I got mine over a year ago).

Highly situational, and more so for each meta that passes. If you want a crew trainer, Churchill III is still better. But this is still better vs the IS-6. 

 

The issue is that you will either do nothing and die instantly, or you will get a steel wall and - 50 000 credit in loss as the gun is not reliable. It's got a KV-3 hull. Something that's a bit too strong for a tier 5 HT. But the turret is the stock KV-1 turret. So even some tier 4 guns can pen that with ease if they know what they are doing. And more and more do. Gun is not reliable on the HT line. You can't pen the Excelsior head on, you can't easily deal with the KV-1 unless he is 100% flat towards you, a bit of an angle and even RNG can screw you over. O-I Exp is not an issue if he stands still and aims on your hull. As you can auto pen the left turret roof. On tier 6 even the M6 can give you issues due to the pen and RNG. The worst part about it is that the crew dies vs any derp gun or arty. So spall line is a must. A bit easier now tho that med kits are reusable. 

 

So tbh... for that price? I would say no personally. 4 years ago, definitely. But now? No. 

 

Another concern on the announcement topic was the pref MM. Tbh, as it stands now you can even struggle as top tier, and even more so in +2 with the armor meta there of late. Even more so after the British TD buffs. If they did remove the pref MM on this... you would be better off as top tier sure. And vs +1 and +2 I suspect it would be the same as now tbh. But at least it won't be no M4 Improved that has +2 MM and has as little pen.

No, don't buy it. It's terrible. jk it's really good, stronk hull made of pure Rasha but weak turret and poor penetration on even the prem rounds.

Where's Bulldog when you need him? The forum's greatest proponent of the KV-220.

I had 70% WR in it after over 200 games in it. Then the metas shifted, came and went. I did stop playing it for a bit. And now it's dropped to 65%, as the recent crew training sessions did not go as well as before.  Tho 924 average damage after 324 games. It's the only tier 5 I have that is close to the 3500 max damage mark "excluding the ELC, as that max damage was pre LT changes with the old old scout MM". T14 is way behind on a 2nd place with 3024. 

 

Tho tbh I prefer and like the Excelsior and T14 more vs the 220. As their armor is overall more reliable. Even vs derp and arty. Their pen is equally low ofc.

Turret is made out of used toilet paper, the hull is solid however. This makes the tank very situational, if you are fighting some tomatoes shooting you in the hull you will be fine, but if they start to aim for the turret... game over.

I got that tank in a marathon and it's one of the best tier 5 premiums available.

 

Most of the players don't know its weak spot and you can be the best player in your team easily.

Check the armor layout. Most of the front is flat, and not actually 90mm.

 

Judging from the other times the thing's been available, you'll have a few days until most players catch onto the gimmick. Might be worth a try in a few months - provided you're still playing the game you'd rather not spend money on, and that WG won't sell the tank again. :P
