Why does American and Russian store always have cool tanks on sale. EU store offers are always the worst. 

 

KV-220-2 anyone?

 

It's on US and RU store.. but not here.. NO NO.

Different regions with different timing and offers. RU got the VK 75 just a couple of days ago. I am sure the IS-3A will be offered in EU at some point.

 

The IS-3A was on offer just two weeks ago during WGfest. Thanks Dutch. :)

I had a very happy year or two making hay with the KV 220 when it was incredibly rare, but now you see a lot of them after multiple sales and last year's Xmas boxes.  Have patience, they will sell it again.

Wasn't KV-220-2 in loot boxes last christmas? I have it but with zero games played... same as with M4 Improved, leFH and T14.

 

IS-2M was sold about a month ago.

I've heard 220 is faster with weaker turret.

If you're asking whether I have a KV 220-2, on the EU server, then yes, I do.  :trollface:

It is faster and has Pref MM too but the accuracy, DPM and Pen on the KV1 57mm is through the roof. It's basically OP, it's also why the KV1S does not have the 57mm otherwise it would have been utterly broken. I've 3Marked both the KV1 and T34 with the 57mm, it's an autoloader that never needs it's clip refilling.

The IS-2M and IS-3A were sold here not even 2 weeks ago. As the "calendar" was not the same in all regions even.

Faster? Not really. It's 25 tons heavier as it's a KV-3 hull. And up a hill that extra weight even with more engine power shows. But it works on flat ground. It has a stock KV-1 turret with a stock KV-1 gun "better ammo" and a decent ROF. And everyone goes for that turret as it's butter at this point vs the Hull. And the gun is not really that ideal vs all the new armor since it came, but can bully down weaker targets with ease. Even the Excelsior can give you issues on a full gold spam with his 114mm armor. Thus it's way overpriced when they sell it to be worth it now IMO.

The KV-220-2 has better specific power than the KV-1 but worse terrain resistances. Nothing to do with driving uphill or on flat ground. It accelerates faster than the KV-1 but the top speed is slightly lower.

Yep, that`s the thing really. Each region has a different calendar and different offers, so from time to time you can see something better - or rare - surfacing here or there, but not necessarily at the same time.

I was only pointing out it's power to weight advantage experience as an owner is not what it seems always, not the other paper stats. As in getting to key spots early vs an enemy KV-1. As in being faster like he asked. And if that key spot is up the hill on Malinovka? Then it shows it's weight, not its power to weight as I said. Nothing more than that.

Yes that's what you said which is incorrect and i also own the tank. Going up a slope or driving on flat ground makes no difference because the acceleration is determined by the specific power and the terrain resistances regardless of the slope you're driving on. The KV-220-2 will accelerate faster than the KV-1 on any angle.

That's one opinion, certainly.

My experience in randoms is that the KV 220 is vastly superior as any idiot can pen a KV 1 but very few players know how to pen a KV 220

Armour is overrated, positioning and knowing which way to go goes so much further. 

 

I tried 3 Marking both and it quickly became clear the 57mm KV1 was the more powerful option. KV220 DPM is pretty pitiful. I know it has Pref MM but even it's Gold round is meh.
