Believe me, if you cant WIN in a KV1 now, you should just uninstall WoT....the KV1 is the absolute most EASY street tank in this game. YOu have ONLY to go into battle, turn your front, and fire till the game ends....unless your totally brain dead, you can face XXXX in a KV1 with minimal effort.

Then its that awkward moment when you realize taht BDR cant bounce any of your return shots and the Panzer IV? lol? You would worry about it? ppfftt.....If the Pzr IV is far away, its not hard, you just aim for the hull and fire......it's most liekly the Pzr IV will bounce anyway....
all these tanks you guys say you fear, even if they are skilled, are you guys not also MORE skilled to kill them? I mean, a Pzr 3/4? hes going to BOUNCE 75% of his shots even off your side. A T1 HT? Whats to fear there? You shoot, you pen, he fires, he bounces....whats to worry about?

I couldn't agree more. A KV1 should dominate any tier 5 and under tank. And to bring a KV1 down it usually takes 2 or more tanks to kill it. Get a 100% crew and get ready to stomp all others.

Pray to your diety for divine intervention? In T5 the thing is OP as XXXX. ANYTHING but LOTS of artillery, and I mean LOTS of arty...or another KV1 who has a brain and knows where to shoot. Anything less then that and you cannot kill it before it face XXXX you. This game has turned into "Team with the most, and best played Russians wins"....THAT is T5 and 6.....its not about skills in T5 and T6, its about being skilled with KV series....they are OP as hell. THe KV3, idk, it sucks, but the KV4, THAT is a GOD in its tier as well...niothing in T8 can reliably pen it frontally, it also has a great gun and great armor..sure it miht move slow, but everythingelse overcomes that weakness...KVs are OP now...straight up!
Oh, alternatively, wait till the KV is far from its base and back cap it...seemed to work on my KV ALOT...but dont fight it...it will XXXX you..

For now, a Panzer IV will do the trick. Just stay at range and snipe the HP off until dead. The Panzer IV's view range and camo value allow it to stay out of site without the KV-1 seeing it, assuming there is no forward spotter. The Stug III could do the same job as the Panzer IV with a little faster rate of fire but essentially the same gun. That's just one way to do it, but that is the one I am most familiar with.
Edit: The Panzer IV and the KV-1 are my two most played tanks, although most of the games showing under my KV-1 were with the original KV before the Soviet heavy line split. I didn't like tangling with the old KV, although I didn't mind doing it, when they could mount the 107mm or 152mm guns, but now I don't really find them much of a challenge to kill after dealing with them when they were much more of a monster in tier 5. Now they are still respectable, just not the monsters they once were.

I run with the Derp cannon and tanks that usually give me grief are the Sherman and Churchill, as these tanks can absorbe a lot of abuse.
