All of them. Every single one of them is an awesome tank. This is the best patch ever.

I kept my KV to grind the 127,000 XP to the S-51 and I am 82,000 towards it so will keep the KV-2 to finish the task.

Having said that, I am a little worried what the tier move will mean for the KV-2 ... as it is the KV is the standout tier 5 IMO and with the 107mm is a good money maker (I am also grinding and saving for the IS4 successor and need credits to buy the Tiger II which I have researched) and I think we all know it's tough and gunned enough to command it's tier and below. At tier 6 that special place in the game will be neutered.

I'll base my decision on which tanks become the company battle preference. What is going to replace the KV-3 in med. company?T-150 or KV-2? :Smile-playing:

I have the researched the S-51 and I'm not a derper so the KV-2 is going. The KV-1 with the 85 will make a decent tier 5 heavy. T-150 I will keep for medium company battles to replace the KV-3, which will be sold as I have plenty of XP on it for the KV-4. After playing the KV-3, even with the D-25T isn't enough for me to keep it once I have the KV-4.

I am keeping both IS-8 and IS-4, both played quite well for me on the test server.

I've been wanting a reason to use the KV-1 turret for a long time, because I love the look of the tank with it. I'll probably keep the KV-1 and KV-2, but I'll sell the other two.

The ST-1 looks like it may be the odd man out,

With that easily penned tumor of a turret, I can't see wanting to play it over the IS-8.

KV-1 for my money grinding. 85mm F-30 FTW! :Smile-playing:
KV-2 for my derpy lolz and with companies. Its basically a direct fire artillery  :Smile-izmena:
T-150 is an uparmored KV-1 hull. Thats about all I can tell.
KV-3 didnt interest me at all. Hate it now,will hate it then.

Both T6 for medium company, maybe the KV-1, it might be interesting to play it with the 57mm. As for grinding the KV-4, i don't think the KV-4 will be a good company tank, so i won't go for it. (And i already have the IS-4 in garage, so no need for me to grind that tree for T10 tank.)

May keep the KV-3 to get to the ST-I. a Weakened IS-4 with a fake american turret is worth to give it a shot :)

KV-2 for derping just for the lulz. Priceless.

The rest, time to sell :)

i'm keeping the kv-1. fun tank to drive.

i MIGHT hang on to the kv-2 long enough to unlock the s-51, but this is doubtful; i can't stand the kv-2 as a vehicle, and i don't actually play arty :)

t-150 i want to like, but i just can't love something that is best equipped with that 107. plus, who wants to play at tier 6?

kv-3 i'll keep for a while, at least; i'm going to unlock the kv-4, though i don't think i'll buy one, and it doesn't look like the st-1 is worth grinding for.

When I first started playing I use to dump everything to get credits to move onto the next tier. Now that I have a decent stable of tier 9's and one tier 10(still working getting german and soviet tier 10's) I'm more selective about what I pickup and what I sell. Don't know much about what the soviet tanks are going to be like after 7.3 but right now I'm leaning toward keeping everything till I've had time to really play it and make a personal evaluation of it. I'm slowing working myself into the mindset of keeping everything good or bad and picking up new tanks slots as I go along...

I'm keeping the KV-3 for the grind towards the KV-4, but as well I am keeping all the new tanks since they need to be Elited. lol
I kinda don't want to have blanks in my tech trees.. >.>

And I enjoyed the KV-4 in the Test Server A LOT.

I actually only recently acquired the KV, partially due to the upcoming patch, and partially to see what all the fuss is about.  Caveat: I don't have the 152 or the 107 unlocked yet, however...

I hate this tank.  I suspect things might dramatically improve with the 107 (I don't much care for low accuracy guns, no matter what the damage is), but I'm not really going to find out.  The way I see it is currently those 2 guns make the tank, and it's losing them both to the KV-2.  Tier 5 is something of a sweet spot, and the change to MM for t5 heavies combined with the KV losing it's top guns... I just don't see this thing being the crazy one shot powerhouse it is today after the patch.  The new KV-2 is going to get saddled with tier 6 heavy matchmaking, and that makes it somewhat less than appealing.  I will very likely sell both KVs after the patch.  Make room for more American tanks.

The KV-1 with the 85 mm will be a good money maker at T5.

The T-150 is a disappointment. Even with the 107, the KV-1s has almost as much armor, is much faster and nimble, and has better guns. I was hoping T-150 would be a good replacement for KV-3 in Company battles, but it doesn't look like it.

The KV-2 is the KV now, with more HP but up a tier. I'll sell it.

KV-3 gets the 25DT 122mm, same as the IS and IS-3. So far on the test server, it's kickin' the IS's butt. It also gets a bigger engine. It isn't a lot faster than it was, but it does accelerate better. Might be a keeper at T7.

I have the IS7, IS4 and S-51. I'll probably sell the tanks and maybe keep the KV-2 for random one shot fun.

The 107 with a 100% crew is nice. Without it, the KV does in fact, suck.

I think you'll like the KV-1 with the 85mm. not nible or fast, but decent armor and a gun that can hurt other T5 and T6 heavies.

I'll have to wait for release before making a decision. Given how top-heavy the test server is, it's hard to get a feel for how the tanks REALLY play when they're placed in the very tip-top battle tier they qualify for in almost every match. A tier 6 in a match with 4 tier X tanks, 5 tier IX tanks, 4 tier VIII tanks, and a tier VII doesn't last very long if you actually try to play the tank instead if finding a corner to hide in.

right now in any testing I have done , I do not like any of them.
IS-8 is fun but dies quik and the IS-4 has swiss cheese as armor. Both I will keep and hope for some tweaks.
The lighter tanks , I will reserve my decisions till I play them on a live server, just cant get a decent tier match on the test always up against balls to the walls tier 10, and frankly i stopped driving the tier 7 new Russians cause they always gettin one shot or 2 shot by the higher tiers. Havent played the kv4 yet so I do not know anything about that one.
