Could have been a good tank  but when they attempted to buff it and the other older premiums there were complaints,

So buffs cancelled.

Apologies for yet again suggesting this.

 

1 Buff all PMM premiums as you were originally going to do mark them as N for new I would say B for buffed but thats already taken

2 Leave the original tanks alone so all those who bought them specifically because of their PMM status can carry on using them.

3 There are now 2 KV5s in the game KV5 and KV5 N and the same for every other PMM tank.

4 Let players upgrade from KV5 to KV5 N

5 Never sell another PMM tank again only the N version.

Actually, KV-5 got buffed, but the buff did not change it exactly into an OP monster. 

Haven`t played it myself, but I heard that when it comes to making credits the tank is still pretty powerful.

Ramming? Yet this was typically reversed into battle due to the glaring weak spots :teethhappy:

 

Worth it in game’s current stats since buffs?

 

just NO. Its a giant HP pinata, nothing more..

 

I endured around 10 battles with it this week, and it is garbage. With huge weakspots it was pretty bad even before Defender got in the tier 8...

Don't need any more premium tanks.

Want more and bigger maps.

..... with 186 pen and 219 gold pen simply makes it a bad tank.

 

That’ll be a ‘no’ to this one then.

 

Now I see why they are talking up the ramming - it’s the only way to damage some heavily armored opponents :D

The tank needs a better gun, simple as that. I would say do 200 penetration and give it a 350 damage.

I have to agree - it looks almost as if these two vehicles were created with ramming in mind!

 

However, they do not earn that much.

very true, but on the other hand you don't need to pay real money to get them, and you can wait for a better tanks

The biggest problem of this is tank is the usual WG *edited* .

 

In theory, you should see tier 7s and 6 more often and that would make the tank great fun. But, in reality you see 2 tier (9-8) or one tier battles and that ruins the whole experince.

 

GG wg!

It shows again wg sells a tank and dont mind at all the consequenses for the balance in this game .

Im frankly disgusted the tank is sold again .

We have all been there ;  Youre having a nice game and are winning big ,  out comes the enemy KV5 and just

rams 5 or 6 of your teammates to death .

Its just a disgusting sealrammer that should never been in this game in the first place , we all know this .

Offcourse it can be the other way around when u have the KV5 in your team , then i still find it bad for the game.

Tier 8 clanwars has become a mess where almost every team has like 7 or 8 KV5 in team .

Clanwars has become ramwars , this really needs to stop , this is horrible for players not able to get a KV5 ,

on most maps they become useless ramfodder .

Stop selling this tank !  Im sick and tired of getting my whole team rammed to death with nothing u can do about it .

My clan cant bring many KV5 , so at one point this season we kept getting penalties and CW season ended earlier for us .

Because my players dont want show up anymore to get rammed to death all the time for no rewards .

The balance in tier 8 is completely broken already , yet again they sell this tank im lost for words.

It's meh, the buffs help, but buffs do not remove power creep.
