Alright WG Devs, here's a real challenge for you..... buff the KV 220's gun to what it was originally supposed to be as stated in the blueprints .......... an 85 mm gun !! Not the pea-shooter you just threw on it, the 76 mm. This thing couldn't fight it's way out of a wet paper bag in a rainstorm if it had to.......you want your tanks to be "historically" correct, then make them that way....

If you want it to be bumped up to tier 6 in exchange, yea that'd be ok. But no. the 220 is already powerful enough in tier 5, its gun is the limiting factor to it.

The gun is the reason WG gave it pref MM any changes to the gun would see pref MM taken away

The KV-220-2 is a fun tank to play and does not need a buff. I got mine in the holiday boxes and I love that tank:playing:

Maybe... but close to 85% of my battles are with tier 6 tanks and for a tier 8 that is like being in tier 10 battles.

Just need to fix the horrible MM it gets all the time.

OK, I get it....it's a "premium" tank & therefore gets "preferred MM"....so, why not just give it back it's original gun like it was supposed to have, other premium tanks, even ones in higher tiers have their original guns on them, so why not this one..........that's all I'm saying.....give it back what was meant to be on it ....... it can't be that hard. And why would that have to change the MM on it.....the other ones still get their "preferred MM".

Churchill III has a tier 4, 6 pdr gun which is equivalent to only 57mm
T14 has a tier 4, 75mm
Excelsior has a tier 5, 75mm
KV-220-2 has a tier 5, 76mm
So, you see... the KV has the biggest gun of all the tier 5 pref MM heavy tanks in the game. If WG were to put an 85 on it they would have to at least drop its pref MM, do you really want to be in tier 7 battles 85% of the time ?

I just got this tank in one of the Xmas boxes and after playing it, it’s very fine for where it’s at.

 

even if you shoot only gold the thing makes money.

 

The crazy thing is when you add all the equipment/skills/food the reload goes down to like 3.6 sec..and wow can that puppy rack up the damage.

 

Plus with the combo of 690hp and that hull..omg I was amazed. If you get three in a platoon, now that would be amazing.

The KV-220 right now is a fantastic tank and is well-balanced. I don't know how you would think otherwise. 
If any prem tier 5 got fixed it should be the Excelsior, being so weak anymore. If an Excelsior and T14 got in a fight the T14 would almost certainly win.
