Never thought I'd get this much damage out of a KV-1S...

...given the slow reload rate, but I did it.

3,945 damage while bottom tier in a Tier 8 match.

Well, your gun deals the same damage as the Tier 8 IS-3, so...

I made this all possible by dying immediately without making the slightest contribution.

You're welcome.

You've probably seen an IS-3 exactly once.

Actually, you did some damage on spotting...and robbed the enemy of six of their shells.

I've seen many in my T-34-85, thank you very much. Far too many.

LOL. Exactly; even firing one shot at me would've been a waste of their time.

Proof that KV-1S is OPs and needs big NERFz ...  :Smile_teethhappy:

On topic one hell of a job you pulled of in a Tier 8 game eh?

They fired six shots at you. >:D

I have yet to see you even approach my Black Sunday performance, so...no.  You carried me a few times tonight.  That Cromwell is just ridiculously fast.

FFS don't even joke about that.  It's balanced out by all the times I explode after barely doing my HP in damage.

Thank you.  Actually I should have put "this is what you do when you're bottom tier" in the thread title, since that's been a topic of debate lately.

Actually, now that I think about it, not only could have the thread been titled "This is what you do when you're bottom tier" it also could have been titled "Tiger drivers take note, THIS is how you angle your tank" because the Tiger at the end bounced TWO of my shots - a Tiger, by angling properly.

Actually, I should send him a note congratulating him on it.

EDIT: Oh dear.  He's a 45% player with a 36% win rate in the Tiger, and he still knew what to do to bounce my shots.  Why can't every Tiger driver having troubles manage to do the same?

EDIT AGAIN: Actually, I must have had the round go awry somehow; it takes an angle of 54% for a Tiger to bounce 175mm of pen.

Solid Proof KV-1S is OP. You know what I say... Remove 122, then add a 100mm for it's top gun instead! Trust me people this nerf will just reduce the damage and some of the pen I know what im suggesting and I Know a 100mm gun would be the best and foremost solution for this OP tank.

Must have been a really bad game to not even land 2 damaging shots....

Angling a Tiger is not as easy as you think. It's also hardly possible to bounce rounds of tier 6 or 7 and above in a Tiger.

You probably rolled a bit low on pen as well.

By the way, forgot to say, very well-played.

You have no idea what it takes to do that.  Played properly, in the right circumstances, your T-34-85 could actually do that by the way.  

Florb: nice battle!  You did good.

Of course. I was in no way trying to detract from his game, and I apologise if it came across that way.

You're delusional if you think a single sample is "solid proof".
