It has recently become very obvious to me that KV-trolling squads are one of the most fun things you can do in WoT.

Get in a platoon with KV's, install the giant metal box turret + 152mm, loaded ONLY with HE shells and all the other upgrades. rRammer and gun laying drive also help a lot.
Proceed to bunch up and hide behind buildings to form firing lines, pop up, shoot a shell, do horrible damage to others, go back, have the others do the same, kill everything.

Be amazed at how you can kill ANYTHING in a few shots. Everything above a tiger will be hurt, badly. You can oneshot KV-3's with a lucky roll on the damage and people ignore you because you are a KV. The gun starts becoming REALLY accurate with a good crew, and more then often you will miss a tank only to hit something behind it. (I had an extremely lucky shot, sniping a hummel at 400m while moving)

Proof with a few screenshots how stupid people can be and ignore the gigantic gun you have. My friend took these in a match where an IS-3 rolled RIGHT past him and chased a 5% su-5. Thinking that the KV was not worth it or could not damage his massive behind. 3 shots and he was no more. Also note how we design skins to mark our trolling status.

Short version : Use KV-2 squads and troll the hell out of everyone. :lol:

That shark skin looks great for the KV, is that available for download/use anywhere?

:D:D nice skins

Yes often people ignore KV's. I usually ignore them too but if i see a KV with a short barrel, i take cover. If i m with A-20 i like to play with them a lot, specially if they have the toilet turret, 1 shot there, 5% gone

When I get back on my main computer in a few hours I'll upload it somewhere for ya. Bear in mind the Shark skin + gray was not made by me. I only added the other stuff.

Ditto, back in time with my Kv, 152mm for sure, it's much more fun than with the 107.

That "vodka storage" looks funny but is a bit like blasphemy - true Russian would never keep vodka outside the armored hull. http://img821.images...artizananim.gif

It's a decoy. It's actually their food, water, and other non-important stuff.

The derpcannon is the most fun weapon I've tried. For sure not the most effective, but the most fun.

Why do you call it "trolling" though. It's fun and good gameplay, there's no "trolling" about it.

hahaha poor azryel, having used a KV myself i NEVER ignore one, there's a funny rule here: the shorter the cannon on the KV, the most wary you need to be :Smile_great:

i think i got on the other end of a trolling KV squad, it might have been you guys but i can't remember.... it was a couple days ago in ensk, there where FIVE KV on the opposing team, can't remember if they where in squad or not...., and i encountered 3 of them down the east road alternating themselves to shoot me(and a IS3 as well), at the end of that brawl i'd killed 3 KV's and and IS3 with a mix of HE and AP and gotten only ~200HP dmg and lots of bounces.

thinking again, some kv's even had the 107 i think.....

Having tried the KV-2 turret with the 152mm I can see the appeal, especially with the HE capable of upto 1,183 damage, but the 25 second reload, with a rammer, is just far too long. Hummels fire faster without a rammer. Missing is immensely frustrating, and I feel I'm spending most the match watching rather than helping. I think I'll end up going back to the KV-1 turret with the 122mm, it was more fun.

KV's take the piss with that 152mm.

It's exactly the same damage as the short 152mm guns the SU-152 and the ISU-152 get but those are 2-3 tiers higher!

I roll around in my SU killing absolutely anything with those 152mm HE shells. KV's have a punch way above their weight with it.

Since it's an ambush gun the fact that the KVs gun fires at 2.7rpm while the SUs is 4.12rpm and the ISUs is 3.75rpm barely matters.

Accuracy and aiming time is a bit worse but again isn't a biggie. Hold still for a bit or let them get close enough and you can hit anything.


Main downside of firing those from a KV is that you're a much bigger and slower target.

But I'd bet it's a lot cheaper than repairing a SU/ISU.

That's it, changed back.

I really tried to like it. I know the potential is there for it to be a great weapon. It's just too damn slow to reload, and missing is just infuriating. I can't use it anymore. Back to KV-1...

I approve this thread !!

I highly doubted in the 152mm DERPGUN but I tried yesterday ... and I literally gotta say ... WHAT A BLAST !

With that gun your KV is now a ridiculous tank !!! Ridiculous look, ridiculous reload time and most important ridiculous damage !!!

So. Much. Fun.

In my first night I :

- Blasted a Panther from 100 to 7%.
- One shotted a KV. (probly something nasty blew up inside)
- Three shotted an IS-4.
- Mauled any hvy tank in sight.
- Spent alot of time reloading.
- One shotted low tier meds.
- Wasted alot of money on missed shots.
- Dueled another derp gun KV ... hit him twice, got him at 2%, he hit me once then missed and his sniping friends picked me off while I was reloading ... !

I took the 107mm off to put it on the KV-3 and I don't think I will buy another one for the KV now that I tried that !

Now I want a rammer ! xD

Killed 2 lolcannoned bobbleheads trying this last night on cliff with my bobblehead107.   Once I can afford a rammer though I will remount the 152 and have another go.
