wouldn't go so far as to say 'the best'  in the right hands the BDR and Churchill 1 both will give it a run for its money..  the KV-1 is the most noob friendly, thus why you see it perform better more often in pubs.

From my experience KV1 is better than Church and BDR (had all of them), loved it so much I still play it from time to time

isnt BDR better simply because of its 240 damage?

Regardless of your preference in gun:

buzz saw 57mm
good pen good alpha 85mm
or the Derpa Derp 122

The KV-1 still has GREAT armor, ok mobility, and overall good "soft" attributes.

I would take it over the BDR, T1, or either Churchill any day.

Platooned, hellish.

A single attribute does not make a tank "better".  Factor in the crap armor, long reload and barn-sized silhouette of the BDR, its a trade-off.
