Love my T-14 !
Could be better at this or that but hey, a good moneymaker, and I'm doing very well with it.
Like any other tank, try to play its strenghts !  :)

Penning the driver hatch of a KV1 that sits perfectly still and shouts "Please pen me with your 96pen gun since I lack the ability to slightly angle/wiggle my tank" then yeah, have fun with those.
A KV-1 that knows how to play the game? Enjoy being a smouldering wreckage.
I always found the T14 fairly strong side scraping, though the last time I played mine it was before the premium ammo for credits, I usually used the biggest advantage it has, and that was being fairly fast for a heavy.  :smile:
Then again you also faced tier 5 KV's with derp.... *shudder*

If and only If he has the derp.   Aside from that he stands little chance agaisnt a quality T-14 driver

I have been on a pretty good roll with the ol' girl this week. I'll stand by my earlier comment, this is a good tank and definetly the most underrated in WOT. You'll also notice, I just have a basic "leftovers" crew.

I'd be more concerned about the KV2 if we are being honest here. The gun on that thing is INSANE! I have been 1-shotted by those many a time all the way up to my M10 Panther (not that it has great armor).

Excelsior and T1E6 are 2 of the most under-aprieciated tanks on the NA server.

Just picked this tank up last night and have been having a great time with it.  I have been wanting it for a while, but this thread convinced me.  I've been playing it as a fat medium, but can also lead the push when I have to.  So far, the only tank that I fear in this thing is the KV-2.  That thing is a 1-shot wonder, side scraping or not.  Everything else though, I stand a pretty good chance against.  I DO pack 10 ACPR rounds for those tougher moments, but generally if I aim for the weak spots the standard ammo does pretty well.  One thing that I have found that I haven't seen mentioned much, is that if you go hull down in this thing its an animal.  I got a Steel Wall last night in one match where potential damage was a tiny bit over 2k.  That's insane for a T-5.

With 50/50/50 hull armor, you definetly need to go hull down! Enjoy that 101/101/101 turret! :)

Warning: The T14 is not invulnerable, as I have seen so many red drivers find out.

There has been a ton of chatter about the KV220 lately. Anyone go 1v1 with a 220 using the T14?

I have both the KV220 and the T14.  They are VERY similar. The guns are almost the same.   The big diff is the armor.  KV 220 has crazy hull and side armor and not so good in the turret.  The T14 has much worse hull and side armor the the slope and with angles is really better then it seems.   Here is the Kicker.  The turret on the T14 is insane for a tier 5.  Its 101 all around AND it curved so the slope on it also comes into play.  The best hull down tier 5 in the game.  The KV 220?  Everyone has learned in the last few days to shoot the turret and just kill it.  If you want a good comparison of the KV220 vs the T14 just check my stats.  The T14 crew is 100% and one perk at 60%.  The KV220 runs my IS4 crew and they are 100% with THREE perks the last one at 60%.  Despite this the  T14 has a win loss of 65% vs the KV220 of 53%.    So there it is.  T14, at least for me, is a win machine.

Might have to get one for my US heavy crew training. T34 is more than I want to spend but hearing good things about the T14 helps

My KV220 isn't the mobile bunker it was when I first got it. Players quickly learned how to deal with it. OTOH, the T14 still has the awesome bouncy armor we all love/hate and WAY more mobile.

Something i learned: If a tank NEEDS gold, a lot of times, isn't good. (At all). This T14 with some angle skills, can bit of sidescrape, and bounce a lot of shot with it. but, some weakspot memory in this tank doesn't hurt ;)

I bought this a few days ago at half off and have been very happy with it.

 

Very limited sample with just 28 battles, but 68 percent wins (with four losses being games I had to quit out of to do family things), a 1728 WN7 (1862 WN8).   Impressive hull down ability.   With the speed you can get to great hull down spots where the enemy can't root you out easily and influence the entire match it seems.   

 

I do sling gold against harder targets, but in all, the tank holds up well against anything I fight.   The British ATs suck though as you need gold PERIOD to even get through the cuppola.    I am enjoying this tank.   An elite T1 Heavy is still better than this, but, it is so tall it's harder to get into great hull down positions.   I imagine a crew with a little camo rating on the T14 would make it absolutely beastly given it is smaller and has a better camo rating MOVING than the T1 Heavy has standing still.    I read that in one of these threads.

 

This is a pretty good premium tank for me so far.   Interestingly, playing in it recently led me to break out the Churchill III that I had a 43 percent win rate in and I'm even winning in that despite wildly different play style for each.   The T14 gives me confidence I don't totally suck and it makes my other tanks seem stronger or something :).
