All this hub-bub about the KV-2 ® made me think of something. 

 

So I went to my tech tree. 

 

And realised that I have never, in all my years and matches, played the KV-2......

 

....forgive me, for I have sinned.

Not even when it was the top turrent version of the KV, RIP?

Go unlock it, or buy the premium if you really want to go crazy. It's a devilishly fun tank.

You are forgiven.  With respect to the KV-2, I think the only unforgivable sin is to play it with the 107mm ZiS-6 gun.

Not even then. I've literally never played a tank with the KV-2 turret and 152mm derp. If I remember, back in the day, I thought it was OP so I intentionally didn't play it. I'm not sure how I've gone all this time without ever once playing it .

I won't buy the premium, I really don't like playing anything lower than Tier VIII, but I may have to research and buy a KV-2 just to fill this newly discovered void in my soul. I just don't have a crew for it.

I wish I could neg rep you for sinning against Stalin. The mighty hand of Stalin will ALWAYS be better than the dainty hands of Tojo.

 

Besides the armor, OI has nothing. KV2 has better gun stats and better mobility. OI is a turd.

The only sin is actually playing something as cancerous as the KV-2

Maybe if they ever mess with the techtree version, at least those who bought t the premium version either secured future gold refunds or original performance of the KV2. Caveat, if they buff it (can’t imagine why) you’ll have a nerfed version for a long while.

When you get it use it in the 2nd line ,,,, equipment GLD , Vents , And Spall . ,,, Snapshot , BIA , Smooth ride , Safe stowage , Intuition , Sixth sense  are good starter skills .  Turn your turret just a little bit after firing and back behind something till your about reloaded in 18 seconds . Then your sins will be forgiven and a few LoLs when it's all said and done .

Ah, you are that guy.  Glad you could add to the conversation with a spelling correction!

I get that notion.  Though I derped so many times by the then-king of mid tiers that I had no problem playing it to get a taste of it myself.   Hilarious fun until finding out the Pz IV (then) was a good counter and that the KV with the KV-2 turret wasn't a total mid tier god. That's what's been good about this game though.   Even when there's a seemingly OP tank, there's always someone who's found a way to counter it.

 

And yes, you sinned.  There is no forgiveness, simply a reminder that depriving yourself of a giggle when firing that derp is an experience all WoT tankers should have.

If you aim any of your shots in the kv-2 with the 152mm derp then you are not forgiven my son.

The hand of Stalin ...somehow used MY pay pal to buy this .  But truly , this tank is a load of laughs . NOW you get BIA crew plus premium ???? How can sane men NOT buy this ??

IS like being a paid porn star tester . With all you can drink Vodka . Just need to have no shame is all .

bhahahaha ... I'm a sinner!   I tried it, and it was actually not bad ... but there is something primal about the boom of a large caliber HE derp gun at medium tiers ... its ... sinfully good ... muhahahahahah

I won't buy the premium, I really don't like playing anything lower than Tier VIII, but I may have to research and buy a KV-2 just to fill this newly discovered void in my soul. I just don't have a crew for it.

 

I'm the opposite.  I played the kv2 for a brief while for doubles over maybe a year for a total of ~160 battles.  Sold it 2? years ago, and still have the crew in the KV5 and the KV4 Kressel with just shy of 4 complete perks.

 

when the T49 was a tier 8, I found zero reason to play a slow fat heavy with RNG from hades, when a go fast, paper LT with RNG from hades made things more fun.

Ha, playing it will not fill your soul.  It makes you lose it.  Some people can drive the KV-2, I cannot.  I presume they sold their souls.
