3.43 RPM is pitiful... How does WG expect a carbon copy of a tier 6 tech tree tank to sell well?

I will buy it for sure... They mentioned it in one of the streams. 

and I think 3.48 RPM before the rammer is actually fine. (Tier 6 KV-2 w/o provisions is 2.61)

Because the rof is basically like .75 RPM higher?

idiots love derp guns and a more accurate kv2 = more idiots sniping at the back in Yamato harbor

 

It also has buffed armor to 120 on the upper glacis and 100 on the lower glacis and 150 on the turret cheeks so it can't be He'd penned from the front.

Do those side panels on the turret count as spaced armor? Cuz that'll be annoying to deal with if/when i see them in my t49.

Sometimes, you just gotta sit back and watch them all burn. Don't forget to bring popcorn. You're going to need a snack.

Sooooooooo, it's just a better, profitable Kv2. And I almost thought wargaming cared about the meta after this update.

I gave up on thinking that back in 2015-16

  I don’t know what to say, there are so many KV2s already and the guys that aren’t playing them are already playing scared enough as it is. 

 

  If this is the direction the game is going I don’t know if I can hack it anymore. They finally nerf the 183 and then turn around and do this? It makes no sense at all, they just want to sell tanks. They don’t care one bit about how the game is played.

Go to your tier 5-10 missions, uncheck "available in garage" and scroll to "Smasher".

 

Edit: Scrolled the stats sheet down a bit on the right

I wonder if you shoot the mounted rocket thing if it explodes or acts as more spaced armor or ..?

 

Dang thing looks like a reject from Mad Games.

It's the culmination of every derp driver's wet-dream.

When did they decided that the SU-152 wasn't bad enough? 

"Blitz" can't exist within a world of TDs.

That's the last thing this game needs. The heavy centric meta now is way worse than the med centric meta ever was.

I'm a KV-2 hater, I can't wait to smash one of these to bits.  It'll get sucked into a lot of tier 8 games, good luck.

A good heavy driver knows how to make shots bounce off their armor, how to use cover while fighting at the front, when to get out there and just take the shot to protect his team, to keep the reds attention focused so his team can flank, and to consistently do damage while all of that happens.
