Someone the other day mentioned that the KV220 was near useless in today's meta.

Can't say that I am 100% in agreement with that observation

First WoT game today, after a very long and drunken Sunday lunch with family over, and it picks up Steel Wall, Invader, High Calibre and Cool Headed without even breaking into a sweat

 I find that difficult to believe as well. I picked one up the last time they were on sale and have had a blast with it, 62% win rate and 2200 WN8. The damage expectations for the MOE's are ridiculously high as well. Just don't play it hull down as you want the enemy to aim for the hull instead of the turret, spam a bit of gold as necessary and she does the job.

Meta is a myth - it's just a word, often bounded around by folk who take a game seriously.

AT the end of the day, it just doesn't matter what tank you play, or how you play it, as long as fun is had.

After all, that's why we play games right?

Why not?  I've been doing that for 8 years.  In fact I am positive that I have never played WoT sober

As Kingsley Amis said, no pleasure is worth giving up for the sake of another 2 years in a care home in Weston super Mare

Fortunately they comprise 90% of my opponents while playing it

This is one of the wisest things ever said.

Works not during the weekdays with no events ...people know too shoot the turret...

But in a weekend with a event on (All tomatoes online it can be fun) all aiming at the body of the tank :P

This fun can also be done in the Mutant and somewhat with the Thunderbolt in tier 6 (although that will maybe be over soon)

just totally clueless weekend tomatoes all aiming at your lower plate and take them out 1 by 1 :P you can feel the despiration...
