Moment of silence for one of the classics.

Poor Kv2 your symphony in 152mm will be missed.

People who yell and cry that KV2 is "OP" are either new sub 500 games players. Or people who shouldn't be playing this game.

i think whats proved more by the KV2 changes, the crew changes etc. etc. is that the current set of devs (or at least the 1 at the top pulling the strings) have completely lost the plot.

Well it's getting nerfed soon anyway.

Enjoy those KV-2 derps while you can...


Just buy the premium, it won't be touched. Like the premium artillery and premium light tanks :)

That is, unless WG wants to give a full refund.

‘Yes, the KV-2 is broken’

 

thats the funniest thing I’ve read on here for quite some time. It’s a derp gun that sits on a slow moving, slow-loading, impossible to hide, fat-[edited]tank that is vulnerable to arty and has no chance if something gets round the back of it. Only the suicidal sit in front of it

Because denying an entire corridor is perfectly balanced.

Another hilarious comment. I've seen many different tanks denying an entire corridor

I'm not sure about this cuz i play mostly kv-5 but the moment WG nerf KV-2 and other derp fun gun is the moment i'll consider to sell all my  tanks, empty my credits, dismiss all my crew members and say gg to the game.
You cannot ruin somethin so fun  (AND SO EASY TO OBTAIN SINCE THEY'RE AT TIER 6), iconic and that has been always part of the game just for a few whines while you put in game things like defender.

WG is going after the fun low-tier tanks. Maybe too many people are having fun playing the game for free at lower tiers. 

The fact that the KV-2R is rumoured to keep its derp abilities speaks volumes about what the real intention is here. Pay for fun. I expect them to go after the Pz1C after that.

There are tons of tanks that do that. And yes, that is perfectly balanced. There are dozens of ways you can outplay KV2, but people just freeze when they see that gun and refuse to go anywhere near it. It is a gimmick tank that only does one thing, and once you get over that one thing you pummel it to the ground. Let me put it like this: gun with bad penetration and poor handling that takes ages to reload, on a platform that is not particularly well armoured. Wait till you meet hulldown IS7s, sidescraping 705As, invisible cheese wedges and other wonders of high tiers...

I meant the gun. The 152mm is a HE standard gun.

 

In other words, wargaming saaid they weren't touching guns which were "balanced" around their HE rounds.

That makes no sense then, as all the tier5 105 derps will stay the same?

 If you think one KV-2 with a 20-30s reload can deny and entire corridor, you *really* need to start looking at your own playstyle. It can only fire once and then you can just storm (and kill it) before it's reloaded.

 

I'm sorry, balancing is not meant to cover up for terrible player mistakes even though Wargaming is trying their best to do so :)

Of course it's broken and OP but it seems to get a free pass because I presume loads of player abuse the crap out of it.

 

It's a tier 6 tank that can one shot same tier heavies, and pretty much everything lower tier it faces with ease and has a better reload than a 183, yet people complain the 183 is broken, but seem fine with the far better KV-2 which has a better reload, better alpha for it's tier and better gun handling. 

 

Hopefully the HE changes give it the nerf it has deserved for a long long time.

The 152mm fires AP as standard

Were you farming it? You got greedy and got back to the garage. Those derp Guns if they full aim and sit there a little bit, they can shoot pixel perfect! Not only that!

 

If you aim in 3rd person, the target is dead steady and you know your gun arc.. you can "craft" out of line-of-sight shoots too! :harp:
