I actually kind of like mine. 122mm gun on a reasonably mobile platform that can meet tier V. It's also one of the tanks that keeps demonstrating how laughable the accuracy stat is. It's more like playing T-34-2/3 than playing a heavy tank though since the armour isn't going to hold up against anything but a handful of tier Vs.

gee... I have this tank, I enjoy this tank, but would I recomend it? no!

 

it has tier V armor, aims forever and has trouble penetrating stuff with apcr.

So if you want a soviet prem tank buy something else, heck if it's a money issue, the KV 5 is still available.

 

 

Ah yes, those 2 extra mm of penetration on KV-5's APCR make all the difference. :D

Is wargaming dwelling in the past or they try to exploit nostalgic feelings ? In my opinion to bring back the fun from begining is to ban XVM and gold ammo. This will be sometime in the future when they will try to save the company.

I think he was referring to the introduction of the Soon Win Gun, the new Japanese tier 8 Premium Heavy. :great:

122 not worth compared with regular IS at any aspect, except top and traverse speed!

I think I'll stick with the KV-3 as I can not see any advantage to getting the 122 (on paper, at least). :)

 

Plus the Kirovets-1 went on sale yesterday on console, thus I'm holding out hope that it makes a reappearance on PC in the not too distant future. :justwait:

Edit: Having now browsed the entire Store, they also have the OG King Tiger :justwait:, E25 and a Captured KV-1.

That day is today! If you are having difficulties playing a tech tree vehicle, may I suggest you use one of the many guides around them from out wonderful community or you perhaps play something that suits your play style most? 

 

Sir, don't want to be disrespectful, but I am playing this game for too long to be filled with play stlye and guide tips. If you want to be competitive, play meta tanks that are usualy Russian.

 

Tell me, what tanks do curently do best in any modes? Frontlines filled with Progettos, premium EBRs, Defenders, IS3-A. Tier 6/8/10 Strongholds/Clan battles, what tanks are played most? That's a retorical question, we bouth know the answer. And it is stuff like that, that makes me sad about the future of this game, the game I love and hate so much.

 

Enough off topic, the 122 is here for tank collectors.

As this tank is available from the tech tree for gold and is 30% off at least 2 to 3 times every year I fail to see why anyone would buy this bundle.

There was a very good reason for doing this! 

What was that reason? Also why were tank companies removed on EU, but left on RU?

If you can then please ask WG to bring the players a special mode (like WoT Beta, but at an update when there were only 4 nations in the game) + the ability to play TC's and the old Hellcat/KV-1S/ Tier 5 Grille arty/ARL 44. If that could be made in to a one week event you would surely get a lot of players returning for the old experience.

Yeah, I dont have that one. But I hardly play Japanese heavies so think I am going to pass on that one. Certainly since I already have the Heavy Tank 6.

 

Will be hard anyway to find or come up with a premium which I dont have and kinda need. Lets see what premiums I have from tier 5 to 8 on all countries:

 

GE

LT - 1

MT - 10

HT - 4

TD - 6

 

RU

LT - 2

MT - 7

HT - 10

TD - 5

 

USA

LT - 1

MT - 8

HT - 5

TD - 4

 

FR

LT - 4

MT - 4

HT - 2

TD - 2

 

UK

LT - 0

MT - 5

HT - 4

TD - 2

 

CH

LT - 3

MT - 2

HT - 2

TD - 1

 

JP

LT - 0

MT - 2

HT - 1

TD - 0

 

CZ

LT - 0

MT - 1

HT - 0

TD - 0

 

PL

LT - 0

MT - 1

HT - 1

TD - 0

 

ZW

LT - 0

MT - 2

HT - 0

TD - 1

 

IT

LT - 0

MT - 1

HT - 0

TD - 0

 

Didnt looked at SPG since I hardly play them anymore and there are not muich premium arties. But seeing this there arent much new premiums I could use for crewtraining. The ones I dont have is because the lines are only at the starting tiers or the tanks arent even in the game. And a few I dont need since I hardly play those tech tree tanks but I am just grinding to get all tanks in the game researched.
