Good cause I don't agree with it! Besides tier 8 and 10 is where it's at brah.

Most people wouldn't, players with actual skill could easily use other tanks for bigger gains, but when it comes to your typical pubbie stick with the tanks that take a bit more effort to fail in.

We really want to get involved in the 8s, but as I said we don't have enough people showing up.

The autoloader cant pen jack. The A-43 is in the category of not bad not great

 

I'd actually argue the a-43 is comparable to the Crom and clearly superior to the e8 or 34-85. It has near Crom mobility with the e8s accuracy on the move. Excellent tank for coordinated pushes.

It's slow, has a long reload, and takes forever to aim, by the time you could get the gun properly aimed at the flat area on the hull of a 1S he coulda just put a round in almost anywhere on your tank minus the gun mantlet

 

But the KV-2 can either finish the 1s off or leave him with 100 hp left. By experience, the KV-2 performs pretty well in a team environment. It is slow, but it is perfectly usable.

 

I'm just saying, the KV-2 is a worthwhile investment. You just need a good driver so that he can make the KV-2 reliable.

-1 for trashing the VK 28.01   HORRIBLE advice on your part.  Driven properly, it outperforms both the M24 and the Type 64.

5 ELC AMXes, 1 AMX 12 t, 1 Cromwell. The new meta is boom and zoom.

 

2 VK 28.01s = no more Roaches.  Fight over.

Not many people know how to play it, the thing is also a big target to be in when you get spotted in the wrong place

1) Some people don’t have any good tier 6’s because they are scrubs

 

2) Some geniuses think it’s a good idea to get their X2’s this way and grind their tanks, rip us brining a stock Chi-To thanks to an unnamed scrub.

 

Don't do the top 2 from this list

^This

If only my clan would let me, I would totally grind my stock 9's in stronghold battles!

Yes for smart players, for people just starting out in this they probably wont know how to use it effectivley, we have run with KV-2's before and they have been great, I just dont see some pubbie know how to use it.

Gotcha.


Though, I would not downplay the KV-2 as being a filler heavy.

You would only use one KV-2 in your team. Its a clean up tank. Use your team mates and work at the back. A good driver will make the other teams life hell. Talking from experience. In team battles I do very well in it. Sorry but 900 damage needs to be respected.

Any tank sucks if you don't know how to play it, so that is a specious argument.  The fact is, the 28.01 beats both the Chaffee and Type 64 as an overall scout.

VK 36.01H has great armor ( keep it at 60’ ) and can easily out gun the KV-1S.  German meds slow hell no. The VK 30.01P has a top speed of 60 km/h. 4 less than your Cromwell. It’s armor does work and packs a deadly 88mm. Sure its pen is low, but against other tier 6 tanks that’s no problem.

We won with 6 togs and an AMX 12 tonne XD. I've found that an entire team of Cromwell is the best possible, You have health, unmatched speed and control, and can circle jerk ANY tank besides the chaffee

had alot of fun playing Bert in stronkholds last night, we won most matches with it. great for finishing of that low health tank. if the enemy camps you can wreck them.

i set more than a few hellcats on fire on a direct hit :trollface:

for all of you who are :arta: on arty, i made it fair and shotgunned 3 tanks during the night :izmena: including a chaffee dogfight :playing:

I've been using my kv2 solely in the 15 or so matches I've played and have only lost a single match.  While the reload/aim time/speed sucks it still is a hell of a bully.  Once you 1 shot that 1st kv1s then his teammates become a lot more timid.  Sure I get to the brawl after everyone else, but they've all shot by the time I poke and I get a free shot, usually fully aimed into a gun port.  I'm averaging 1500ish damage in my games, and have won two 3v1s, of course more due to the last tanks not working together, but still.
