...they were wrong.

 

 

KV-2 is most balanced tank.

 

And yes, that is a 950 damage HE pen to the turret face of an IS-3.

Yeah, I know it penned the 20mm overmatch patch above the gun.  

 

The settings  hurt my feels too.  But they're all my laptop can handle.

overmatch doesn't work for HE. The IS3 hasn't sacrificed anything to Lord SerB and RNGesus lately

Very NS, considering how long that aim time is on that KV2 gun.

Then perhaps it just PENETRATED the roof without overmatch.

KV2 is taller than lS3. The lS3 was positioned lower ground. ML1O 15.wcm howitzer fires low velocity subsonic shells that curve in arc, hitting downwards. With these in mind, the shell simply hit the front top of turret, just behind top gun flap, and your 8O-9Omm HE pen easily smacks through thin roof. Much like an artillery hit and pen.

 

No overmatch. Just a lucky cue stroke.

Not only ridiculously lucky hit, but ridiculously lucky pen. And ridiculously lucky damage roll +46 over Avg....for the lauls

Exactly. Considering that HE doesn't ricochet either, he hit the right spot and got a high pen roll.

How was the 20 second reload?  In that time the is 3 will kill you even with only 1 hp left.

Pretty good.  I pulled around the corner, and by the time the IS-3 platoon summoned the courage to move up I was reloaded to finish what I started with the poor soul I penned.  Finishing off the Lowe took them long enough to buy me the time I needed.

I was subjected to similar balancing by a T49 once. I was starting to run down the trench on Steppes in the ST-I with some friends, and a T49 fired at me while he was going full tilt. RNG allowed him to do a high-roll pen on my turret hatch that had mere centimeters exposed. At first I thought that arty had hit me, but then I realized that there wasn't any arty in the match.

Actually, the IS-3 was on the high ground. Still a lucky shot though.

I can dig up replays of countless KV-2s bouncing my turret. Luck of the RNG

HE doesn't actually ricochet... I mean, I have seen it happen where it bounced, but thats a bug of either display, or one didnt load HE but thought they did.

In the game, HE never ricochets. Upon impact, the HE shells explodes. If a HE shells "pens" then it was able to either dig into that armor and explode in, or the force was strong enough to punch a giant hole in it. If the HE doesn't pen, then the damage done is by spalling.
