Do you think a .50 cal is overpowered for hunting swallows?  I'm sorry, I really should be more specific.  The swallow is unladen, travelling north-northwest at 13 knots with a 4 knot tailwind, and is a native swallow from the scottish lowlands.

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.

Not sure you ever noticed, but only one end of that tank is dangerous, and the other hand is not. 

If you shoot that other end, it will take fire every other time which will add a lot of warmth and joy to your lonely nights.

plus you get to grill some virtual marshmallows over the burning wreck.

you should try it.

Trust me, I’d rather play a KV-2 in tier 6-7 than in tier 5-6. its no fun when youre guaranteed to one shot a tier 5. now that they all got health nerfs, you dont need HE to get them. Its more fun to have rng decide if you pen or not, than to just use AP

With the same driver in it, I'd rather see a KV-2 on red than an ARL 44.

 

I fear a good player on the red team far more than I fear any specific tank, and the KV-2 is not even remotely close to the best tier 6 tank. That 1-shot ability is just a fear factor for players who aren't experienced/skilled enough to work around it.

Yes, the KV-2 would be too OP in tier 5. Thank gosh it's in tier 6.

KV-2 is a tier 6, so yes it does see tier 5. 

 

There are significantly more dangerous tier 6 tanks than the nub wagon

I'd much rather know that my teammates in tier 6 or 7 battles have experience handling a giant derp on red than not. It's a good thing to learn as they grind 5, even if only a chunk show any facility with it.

Like the 183, it detrimentally affects the gameplay of its tier, far out of proportion to its actual destructive ability. 

 

Much like a sniper that can impair the actions of an entire company; even though he can only kill one man at a time, no one wants to be the guy that sticks his head up and gets popped. 


Yeah, I'm back. Let's not make a big deal about this.

You wouldn’t have liked tier 5 in +/-2 as it saw tier 7’s a lot more than tier 4...

 

Learn game play mechanics and you won’t be complaining.

It never saw tier 4s in blitz. Tier 5 was +2/-1 Same with Tier 6.

He’s complaining about tier 5’s seeing a KV-2 

   My point was exactly what you said above.

No it’s not OP. Can it one shot some tier 5’s? Yes. Does it miss more than it hits? Also yes. Few things in blitz are less dangerous than a kv-2 that just fired. Many tanks have the dpm at tier 5 to burn down a kv-2 in between reloads.

I personally love face hugging them in the amx elc. It’s hilarious.

I've never actually tried that. The KV-2 can't get its gun down on you if you face hug it in a biscuit?

Any tank is going to be OP at a lower tier. This is just the reality of the game. Sometimes you will get to battle against and bully tanks a tier lower than you. Sometimes you will have to battle against tank a tier higher than you, which can sometimes be a little challenging. You just have to learn to fight against tanks when you are at a disadvantage.

 

There are certainly more scary things to see at tier 5 than a KV-2. A Jagpanzer IV can burn you down in no time at all. Good luck trying to penetrate that angled T-150! Literally the only thing the KV-2 has going for it is its gun. Once the KV-2 shoots, he is on a super long reload with no camo, no mobility, and no armor. You can really wreck him during that 20 second reload. Half the time, the KV-2 won't even hit you anyways.

I wonder if the Krupp is small enough to do that..
