Anyone who actually buys a KV-2R now either isn't reading the latest news/forum posts or wants to risk their CC on WG's questionable balance proposals.

 

It's entirely uncertain what will happen to HE and derp firing tanks. Even WG don't really know the answer but they still want you to buy the Prem that will be affected the most.

The timing of this offer is pretty hilarious :D

 

Still, nice tank. Impossible to know what, if anything, will change. Might also get better.

It's a premium it won't get changed.So..pay 30 euros if you want to play the kv2, because the free version will suck probably.

Inb4 first tier 9 premium - t49R for 50e :trollface:

And if you have saved up your Tank Rewards coupon: you can get it for another 20% off...

 

I alrwedy have it from the first time it was released, but if I didnt own it, I would seriously consider #walletclosed on this tank with its future being so unclear...

Go to the Announcement page and read the article: https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/sandbox-october/

Basically all HE (for regular tech tree and Reward vehicles) dmg will be nerfed by 60-70%, but will (almost) always do guaranteed dmg (no pen RNG anymore).

Nothing will happen to premium tanks, like nothing happened to the premium lights.

 

If you want to keep your "old style" KV-2, I suggest buying the premium. If they change the HE mechanic on the KV-2®, they will need to give you a full refund, like they did with the SuperPershing, so you are not losing anything.

Maybe..

 

But WG burned me big time when WoWS reworked their Aircraft Carriers. Instead of the mini RTS mode, they became WoWP fail mode.

 

I was NOT offered a refund of any sort and my 3 Prem carriers were completely different from what I paid money for. £100 lost and I calculated I paid £1 per game in those 3 Prem ships before WG made the changes.

 

Plus, WG are changing the mechanics and not the tank itself they might argue.

A completely retarded move by WG to sell the kV-2 R now when they are making a huge HE change.
They probably don't even mention the upcoming HE change or if the KV-2R will be affected by it.

Like a way to try and lure customers of their money by withholding information which might significantly impact the tanks role in a few months.

It's misrepresentation

 

We're selling you a car which is going to have it's engine power halved in six months time

 

We're selling it at full price too!

Wg can't nerf the he shell on the kv-2r because it would be misleading advertising then and it would be bad for wg.

Technically they are testing a change in mechanics, and not changing anything on the tank itself, so a weird fine line here...

The KV-2 R is 28€ now, you have a 50/50 chance the it wont get nerfed, if it does get nerfed you can trade it in for another tank so you only lose 14€* if you take the risk. :sceptic:

 

* you trade the tank for 50% of its original price so tecnically you only lose 14€.

thats true pricewise, but you have to take in account that tanks that you can buy  instead with that gold are more or less all  meh...mutz, jgpz8,8, t54 proto etc

Unfortunately no, or only if you are after the bigger bundles. The coupon is limited to items 30€ and above, and the tank alone is some 27€

Ah,ok. Thought it had a 25+euro limit and not 30.

KV-2 ® kad hit tier 8's heavies 300 DMG frontally. 

 

If new mechanic won't change that, I won't mind...  but.... IF SOMETHING DOES CHANGE THAT...

 

Refund.
