KV-5 is good if you're smart, majority of KV-5s are little kids or simply nincompoops who don't know anything on how to handle this 100 ton beast.

I am having better luck with it. I think the gun is very inaccurate. The armor is really something if you are against drivers who don't know where to shoot. That keeps you in the game and able to make up for the gun's lack of power.

Unifying TRIARII factors:

1.How much money we've spent on this game (not to mention the new parking garage required for all of our M 60's)

2. The amount of alcohol consumed while playing tanks. 

3. How much fun we have with, and at the expense of, each other

It can 1v1 and win against any equal tier heavy since it has a superior DPM, just fire APCR.

Now here's the problem, I don't know what to say. Ummmmm, I'm a Maus driver? The Maus is pretty cool. You guys should check it out.

It's a fun tank and great credit earner, especially in tier 7-8 games. The low pen and obvious weak spots make higher tier games less productive, but ramming works well. I don't think it's the best premium, but probably the most unique.

I would say it definitely depends on the driver. I was just in a battle at Middleburg and took one out in an IS-3 (with BL-9), which I guess is not supposed to happen. Anyway it wasn't hard to find spots I could pen, including from the front (the sub turret and front glacis plate). I didn't use APCR or anything, just AP. However he did hit me once I took almost half damage so the thing does hit hard if he hits you (he probably hit me on the turret top). It's not invincible by any means, at least I thought, but it does take some work. 

Perhaps with a different driver I might not have stood a chance, who knows?

The gun sucks [redacted], but the platform is great. Great armor and very good ram potential.

BTW, stop +1'ing your own posts. It's rather tacky, and doesn't reflect what the community actually thinks of you.

I have no idea if it is good or bad, but it is hilariously fun and a good credit earner.

After much thought and reading the posts here I was reluctant to get it. But what the hell, I went and got it anyway. It is a cash cow. You don't even have to do a great game, which I have, to get the credits. Armor is good, not great, but gets you there. Pen is not that bad. Not very good for brawling. Not a sniping tank either. Just keep moving and shooting and getting all the attention so your team is free to engage.  Don't worry if you get killed. As long as you do at least 2k damage you will see the credits flow. It is a little expensive though, and not for everyone. I think $15 would be a better price.

This tank is completely overrated. The "armor" isn't as good as you'd think, and it has a weak spot the size of some tanks. It has a poor gun for its tier, and you will see a lot of pink tanks. It can be good, but it has a steep learning curve. Oh, the turret traverse is painfully slow. 

 

Not to mention, if given the choice of shooting a full health you or a T1 with 2 hit points left, you will be shot. 


Google "Rule of Large Numbers" and "Confirmation Bias" and stop posting complaints about MM.  

You're NOT entitled to a 100% WR and people with jobs and money reap the benefits of such: spamming you with prammo and premium, OP tanks.
