Such a good pairing, they don't even share the same MM! :teethhappy:

I don't know about skoda, but i still think kv5 is trash. And soon there will be more tier 9 premiums, so....

The Skoda is nice, but a bit underwhelming if you don't go to battle with full APCR loadout. It needs the extra accuracy from the APCR shell speed

Couple weeks ago on NA server you sold the t27 and also the 3D skin separately. How long should we wait on the EU server that you will sell the 3D T27 skin?

Well once you have dealt the 720 damage from your clip, your reload is long enough for any tier 8+ tank to easily take you out.

The mobility is a bit sluggish for a medium and doesn't feel quite right when you take it out for a spin, making it awkward to relocate to reload a clip.

 

The funny part is that the Bourrasque does a 720 damage in two shots and reloads faster and is far more mobile.

 

To sum it up:

The reload kills the tank.

Kv-5 is a really good tank after buffs.

2020 Hp and a preferential mm in tier 8 is just monsterus .

The gun with great DPM can punish any enemy .

 

Skoda , 3 shells clip not enough to kill enemy ( this tank need at least one more shell ) 

Good mobility , and turret can bounce some low caliber shots .

But 32 euros for this one when you can get the good skoda for 38 when it comes again ?

Better wait progetto - burr- skoda 56 .

Both decent but I find it hard to make the T27 work consistently for me.

 

As for the KV5 and the other PMM tanks please Wargaming go ahead with your original idea of buffing them all and giving them normal MM

I mean serious buffs to make them conpetitice under normal MM/

For those who want to keep the PMM or want their money back there is a way out.

Buff the tanks and introduce them to the game with a slight name alteration ie KV5n

Players have a choice hold onto their PMM version or swap to the new one for free.

 

Try the idea out with one PMM tank see if it works.

A KV5 being shot to bits by a KV5n will probably convince many to swap.

Did you even read the post this guy was commenting on?

 

Another player had said it would be a good idea to buff KV 5 and remove the pref mm on it.

He is rightly saying that it wouldn't work.

I have both and in my opinion, the T27 is your typical shoot & scoot med and as has been mentioned.  For the KV5, with the PMM, like all PMM vehicles, it feels like tier 9 battles are the norm but it seems to cope ok.  On the occasions its top tier, it is an absolute beast and if you can get a good run up for a ram with it, go for it.  :)

So, in short : two trash tanks.

I will be honest, I always wanted KV-5..

But I really don't want to give WeeGee any more money, even though the price is bearable.

I also don't see how this tank could work in 2021?? 

It just doesnt have armor. It can't play hulldown, it cant side scrape and even when reverse sidescrapoing which is absolutely annoying to do I think we can agree, half of the front of turret is a weakspot. 

Not to mention that even if you have good dpm you cant really fight your fellow t8 heavies because 196 pen and 219 on gold, which I refuse to use but its useless on this tank anyway.

It seems like the tank's only gimmick is ramming and perhaps preferential MM, which as we know doesn't mean much when you can't properly fight your fellow t8 much less t9.

Soon tier 8 will be cannon food for tier 9 premiums.

I am sorry but gotta bash this. there is a reason why you don't see these tanks on the battlefield. because they are junk!
Both of them say kick me on them!
Skoda is a heavy size medium with carboard armor that says kick me as soon as you see me sign on it!
While kv5 is a smack and bash bucket! But it seems for some reason  all tho pro ruski tenk must be op or else

WG hates the KV series!

By which time the Skoda 56 honeymoon period will be over and it will have been power creeped by the latest T9 premium tank…my recommendation is don’t waste your money or your time on this game which has been reduced from a great tank game to an arcade game where how much you spend corresponds to your “skill” level. Hence I have stopped playing both this and the ships version. I see this as a race for the bottom between Wargaming and EA games and so far Wargaming seem to be winning as the most scummiest game developers!
