I suffered through the IKV 103, I got so annoyed by the awful gun handling and RoF on the IKV 65 II that it's the first time in years that I've rage sold a tank (several times) and then I heard that the IKV 90 was the "worst in the line", well then I simply stopped grinding the line altogether.

Jokes are funny, they make you laugh.

No IKV90 is not a joke.

 

Even tanks are good.

Odd tanks are terrible.

Didn't really have a problem with it

Swedish TD line tiers 5 to 8:

Even tanks are frustrating, team dependent and highly situational.

Odd tanks are [edited]awful.

i found the ikv 65 quite decent, for it's tier it's pretty good bar the awful reload time

it's the gun handling, it has no dpm or alpha so why it has such terrible aim time and handling is really beyond me. it's not as if you can go brawl in it lol

I'm grinding the IKV 65, 25k left for the 90 B. It's inaccurate, has slow reload and the overall Swedish TD Line must be the most painful to grind. I don't know what awaits me at 90 B. But I hope UDES 03 will make it all up. I enjoyed the Sav and 103 as well, but the grinding is just awfully painful.

The issue with the IKV90 is that it's "meh" on everything. It just doesn't excel at anything. Other tier 7 TD's have one aspect that sets them apart from the rest. Like the big gun on the SU-152, or the armor on the SU-100M1 etc. Even the high top speed feels worse due to the traverse etc vs say the E25. As that's the only thing he has better then most. Everything else is at the middle or right below it. 

 

It's not a terrible TD tbh.. just... "meh". Thus not that interesting or even a point to keep it.

I don't know how the French TD line is nowadays but the Swedish one was wonderful in comparison when I did it. With that said the Swedes start to shine with the UDES.

Treat it as a tier 7 Hellcat with no turret.

 

Good mobility, but poor gun handling and reload time.

I think both the T5 and T7 Swedish TDs are fun and nice.
The T6 is easily the worst in that line imo.

I did it by being a bushwanker it worked at the time 

It is the bad one in the line I do agree but the high tiers are worth it

Strange you found the tier6 shoe box a bad tank. I thought it was really nice and what a funky looking tank. In regards to it's performance I found it a very good bush fapper TD. Good mobility to get around, insane gun dep, excellent aim time and handling and it had very good shell velocity and pen. The only thing that I found annoying about it was the dpm or rof which was noticeable and didn't allow for perma/track killing tanks but otherwise a fun little box.

 

The lkv 90 tier7. Terrible tank but I'm a bit strange maybe and kinda liked it but the gun was just awful. I could forgive it everything but the aim time which for a TD and low caliber, low alpha gun was just inexplicably and unforgivably disgusting and makes no sense at all. Apart from the aim time I thought everything else was good or at least acceptable. It's a very mobile, high camo TD with good pen once again and also laser speed shell velocity so you don't have to advance the gun much on fast ranged targets which they all should be since this is another bush fapper that just gets murdered quickly if it's ever played any other way and must be played as a "never seen" tank destroyer.... which is why the aim time makes it just one of the worst gun/TD combos around and I remember I had to frustratingly turn down shots on targets because the gun was still slowly aiming and anything other than 100% fully aimed is a certain miss... so I understand your suffering but once you get the cheese wedges you will be glad you stuck with it... if fapping in bushes is your thing.  It used to be my thing but I got bored and city maps kill them so... I now play this game to the rule, "No turret, no play"

Sorry but that's not true. It has above average speed but - worst in class armor pennable by HE. worst in class alpha, worst in class dpm, bad shell speed, bad gun handling, bad gold round, mediocre pen, mediocre view range.

True as a bush fapper it's good, but if you're in any other situation than that or don't have someone spotting targets for you I can't think of many tier 6 TD's that I'd not rather be in. In many matches I was in I sat there aiming, took the shoot, missed the broad side of a Tiger, waited for the DPM to do it's thing, placed a fully aimed shoot again only to get it absorbed by the tracks which sure was in the aim circle but on the very outer part, then all the LT's died, our MT's was hiding behind arty and either I tried to do something or I would just die as soon as I got spotted... Yeah you get the drift.

 

I regularly play quite a few tier 6 TD's, most commonly  the Jackson, the Hellcat and the Jg. Pz. IV and I used to play the SU-100 quite a bit, I'd rate all of them way higher than the IKV 65 II. But yeah I most likely didn't click with it, not sure why, it's certainly not the DPM since I'm currently in love with the T20 which sure have a turret but at the same time it's a MT one tier higher with about the same DPM and armor as the IKV 65 II.

Actuallly i liked ikv90 but udes,god i despised it. To be fair i only played 10 stock battles in it but sold it in rage. Its just to passive playstile for me. In all other td-s i tend to play aggressively but this tank is not suited for that.

I think the UDES is the most fun in the line due to its mobility and adjustable siege height. I guess things got a little less interesting with the removal of a bunch of climbs, but its speed still lets you be "passive" in a more offensive position. If the map allows it, of course.
