Dear Tankers,

Earlier this morning I purchased the T-70/57 and T-127 for $3.99, two Collectors because I like collecting Collectors. 

Later that morning, at around 9 or 10 o' clock, I got a limited-time pop-up offer. These offers are interesting, but the vehicle featured was the KV-5, a Tier 8 Russian Heavy Tank. It was $9.99. This KV-5 offer came with 14 days of premium, 500,000 credits, 20 certificates for 5x XP, and I think that's it.


Is this Tier 8 Heavy really worth it for $9.99? (When I first saw this price, I thought it was pretty good).

NONONONONONO DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! It has bad armor, bad speed, bad penetration, bad alpha, bad reload, and its not worth it. If you want a strong 105mm heavy consider the Tiger II.

The vehicle itself is okay, but like he said, the Tiger II is a better tank in almost every way. But if you have money to spend and like collecting vehicles, it’s an okay deal for 10 bucks.

This may be pointless, but I sort of do have the money to purchase the KV-5, and I sort of don't have the money to get the KV-5, sort of because I want to spend my allowance on Collector Tanks. So it's basically an "in the middle" for me.

It's not a very competitive tank. I find it a struggle to do enough damage in this thing to make a difference for the team.

 

The tank bundles currently available to buy for gold are a better value, even if they are more expensive.


But missiles weren't even that overpowered...

It’s been bad power crept. I’d say $10 is too much. :P

I respect everyone's opinion on whether the KV-5 is worth it or not, but I decided to purchase it. I am also saving up my gold to purchase certain tanks at next year's auction, and I'm saving up actual money to buy myself a Google Play gift card, thanks for everyone's respectful feedback.

I haven't played the KV-5 yet, but I'm using those 20 Certificates of x5 XP it came with to grind to the Jagdtiger.

Gravity Mode, yes. Any other time, no.

No I'm not defending German technical superiority, I'm stating the ****ing obvious!

For ten bucks? That is a deal on this tank like I've never seen before. I'd go for it.
