Not sure how to treat this thread btw, since it kinda feels like a name and shame when it's calling out someone directly. I think I'll check on it now and again between games of DRG And see where it goes before making a call though.

 

I'm fine with it, though I am not sure I have ever expressed strong opinions either way about the KV-5.

Noone is honestly. Keeping track of your post history is something for history books and scholars :)

I'd like to have a KV-5 honestly.. If they sell the tank alone for cheap ill definitely get one. Not paying 40+ euro for one though.

I won't call this a "fan" tho. :P

And yup, since he mentioned a name on his thread topic.

Just wondering why moderators haven't close it yet. :D

 

"Naming and shaming" doesn't apply if there's no shaming involved.

nah it's pretty trash. Just aim at those R2D2 cupolas. 186 pen is still awful.

I think if you say things like this, you cannot possibly humiliate yourself harder.

I like it.

You sounded like you didn't like it on the other thread.

Lanrefni probably just had a good string of games in the kv5 and wants everyone to know by creating this controversial topic. Well here is your moment of internet fame, enjoy it while it last.

Relax, naab.

Infernal? Why'd you reverse your name? What happened? Your profile post seems to indicate something bad went down with you and the mods on the forum?...

I think it's pretty that way. I along with the new mods had a great time together!

Power creep has affected KV-5, in past days apart from massive R2D2 pimples (though reverse kinda worked) it was pretty immune to a lot of lower tiers which it if memory serves met more of, I certainly remember seeing some of my screenshots where it was doing well for an average damage and credit earner with over 100k common, it made more than the Lowe for me at point of release, but that was it's early days.

 

Used it some years back to get some XP into a KV-4 crew, most of the tier 8/9's melted it, dabbing 2 key wasnt a huge help, think it was buffed since?

When WG buffed all the prefMM premiums awhile ago, they buffed everything that wasn't required and didn't buff what was actually required.

kv5 is not as bad as what exactly? :D in 2013/2014  i wanted one as well, but didnt have the chance to get it, but nowadays ramming might be the only effective way of dealing dmg :D

Lately, my favourite ramming is with my EBR into ELC EVEN 90.

i suppose all the games having more than 5k/6k dmg in KV-5's are fake then.

few lucky games doesn't mean that a tank is any good.

This is a bit of an oddball thread, just like the KV-5 is an odd tank. The sum of its features makes for a tank you either love or hate. It is certainly not the easiest tank to play & its oddball features makes it a quite unique tank in WoT.

I still enjoy mine & drive it with the reckless abandon it needs; Play the KV-5 cautiously & make it fight in the HT lanes & it will let you down. But play it overly aggressive, charging it into the med lanes & the thing still instills terror in the enemy. Because no sane med wants to be on the wrong side of a 100 ton ramming machine.

Not as strong as it used to be in its high days, but still a fun machine for me :great:

But the most fun is with a KV-5 platoon that shares the reckless mindset. Then you can do wild things :playing:

 

We fear naught

 

In the current meta, it remains an oddball as it is an armored HT that cannot fight well in the HT lane so you got to put it to different use, something the average random team has trouble with -> an armored HT in the med lane? BLASPHEMY!
