This tank is so overpowered that even in my can't-win streak yesterday, I can get 4 wins in a row by hopping in it. It's got enough armor to shrug off 200 pen guns, turns fairly quickly, and has the tier 8 version of the T110 railgun. I don't see how WG can let this blatantly obvious German favoritism stand as it is. I mean, yeah it was a really famous WWII tank, but making it this OP is just ridiculous.

A german tank player... asking for a nerf.. on a german tank....

This is.. surprising, but I play russian line, and a few US tanks. I would say it doesn't need a nerf, just by playing against it I think its fine.

I think they should increase the frontal engine hitbox, not that it's already sticking out of the visual model.

umm you can't nerf a tanks armor without throwing away historical accuracy, which isn't right. There is Russian favoritism, not German.

here, let me clarify: almost every tier 8 can repel guns with under 215 pen, um... T110 gun? not even close! 50 less pen, 2 or so less rounds a minute, and less alpha dmg, gets engine damage/lit on fire from the front very easily if hi tin the lower plate, has a rather weak turret,

Wow bite ur tongue, or in this case, ur fingers, the KT does NOT need nerf, it needs a slight buff, i can be penned by almost everything just by shooting the middle of the lower plate, at most angles............just because u won 4 games in a row does not mean it's an OP tank...just means u had good luck or do good with that tank......and this is not german favoratism, it's russian bias....

I didn't just win 4 games in a row. I won 70% of my games grinding from stock.

maybe break physics and enlarge the lower glacis while you're at it

Yea, KTs a beast top tier, great armour, amazing gun, good maneuverability and its sexy as hell too.

I love my KT to death and do pretty well with it (56% win ratio no platooning) but I think most of the tier 8s are pretty well balanced out. Especially with 8.0, IS3 is far more on par with it now due to its new armour effectiveness, VKA is even more of a medium killer, T32 is the jack of all trades and all the tier 8 TDs are awesome to play.

I don't know, but I like all my tier 8s and do pretty well in all of them. Funniest tier to play IMO, and the most cost effective. Hard to not make a profit and 1K+ exp every game.

I'm selling it as soon as I unlock E75. Feel dirty just playing with such unfair tank.

Humorously enough, I've been destroying after 8.0 with my 88L71 King Tiger.

Armor Normalization makes anything IS-3's throw at you bounce, the turret is nigh invincible, and properly angling the hull will allow you to bounce 90% of T7/T8 fire.
I haven't even taken a frontal engine hit in 40 games.

The KT went from my most dissapointing tank to my best. Shelving the KV-4 for now, and going back to the E-75 grind for this. I adore firing while moving at long range targets in the 88 and hitting nearly every time, out to 200 meters.

Restrict it to the short 88.

That should bring it inline.
