Okay, I know I've been going crazy over the KV-2, but holy Christ. I went from hating the stock grind to declaring it the most entertaining thing I've ever played in this game. Socking a Nomad who's just waiting for you to come around with a one shot AP round through the turret front (I used AP to make sure he died, I wasn't sure HE would work) before dying since you're the last tank alive on your team is utterly comical. It's also funny to surprised both a VK.28 and a Fury by predicting where they're going to emerge, playing around with how they keep moving on the other side of a building he and I are using as cover, then turning when they think they've got you figured out and ending them with a derp.

 

I thought that the 152 would be worth it, but I feel that's an understatement. The KV-2 is worth the entire line of vehicles up to it solely for the hilarity that ensues when you use it. Hell, my matches have been getting more bizarre and hilarious ever since I got the 152 on- an E-25 on Mirage had to fight me and another KV-2 since the three of us were the last members of our respective teams, and when he tried to flank he found himself staring down the barrel of my 152. The odd thing is that he hadn't even turned to ensure his gun was facing me when he climbed up, and chances were he'd end up dying by ramming me head on.

 

It's also fun to see a VK.28 and MT-25 come around a corner on the southern end of Vineyard, see you and another KV-2, and immediately run into each other as they scramble to reverse behind that corner. So is bringing a Jagdpanther down to one health after one shot into his side.

 

When people say this thing is fun, by God do they mean it. I actually end up laughing maniacally every time I kill somebody or leave them with less than 90% of their health with just one shot. In fact, my win-rate is back up to 53.72% after only using it!

 

 

So, what're the fastest opinion switches you've had when it comes to vehicles? They can be bad to good opinions or the opposite.

The T28 TD. 

 

By all accounts it should be garbage. It's horrendously slow, the armor can be penned easily by prammo and tier VIII heavy AP rounds. The gun has mediocre alpha at best.

 

 

But for some reason I love the thing. I have no idea why.

The Cromwell is a fearsome foe. I've fought it many times before, and every time it's proven itself to be incredibly dangerous.

I hate all tanks when they're stock, so I don't even touch them until I get enough free xp to research top gun from grinding teir 10. Playing with stock tank is pretty much YOU volunteering to lose.

When I bought the o-47. First battle I played with it, I sucked. I thought "This thing is a pos" but drove it again anyways. Next battle I dominate with it and I think to myself "This isn't so bad after all!". After a good streak of good games I think "this thing can rek everything!". But then I got onto a bad losing streak and declared it a pos again. The same thing happened with the tog. First few battles I crushed everything. But then I came face to face with a kv2....

 

:ohmy:

 

I had nightmares for many nights....

 

And then one day I finally decided to drive it agian, for the lulz, and after a satisfactory result I declared it to be stronk, until I met another kv2

 

And the tog went back to collect dust

T28 Protoype.  Stock it sucks balls so bad.  Slow and the 90mm can penetrate only butter.  Maxed out I was a nightmare in it.

 

T71.  Everyone said its horrible, worthless, and should be free XP'ed.  I just kept my distance from the reds and had a blast with it.

E25....I was really bad with it when I first got it.  I ended up shelving it for months if not a year.  I decided to watch sk8xtrm videos on it and gave it another try and I love it now.  I think all the map changes/updates really helped the tank.

The Tiger 2 and I didn't get along very well at first. I thought it was complete garbage until I finally unlocked the top gun and turret. But it wasn't until I learned to side scrape off a hill and bounced several shots from a WT that I realized its true potency. 

 

After the T28 Prototype received its mobility buff I rebought to see if there was any real difference. Oh yes there was a big difference in my performance in that tank. I had originally bought it as my second tier 8 heavy and struggled with it. I will never sell it again.

Strangely enough, the comet. Everyone said it was good, but when I got it, I hated it.  It wasn't even stock, but I ragesold it after 12 battles w/ 29% WR.

Rebought it a few days later and for some reason, did very well in it. Now its rocking 55% in my garage.

I love the sound of HE hitting the dirt in the morning.:( One game KV 2 will burn down the red team like Sherman's match through the south and praise Stalin for his steady hand and next game , after Stalin has had a few drinks, you will plow shot after shot into walls, hills and the 3rd dimision. Your team will call you a N O O B and you will wonder how you displeased the GODS.  I actually think KV2 is a HOOT and Laugh Riot.  Especially at the begining of the game. There a few places on maps you can reliably take blind shots and chortle to yourself when a red icon extinguishes.

ARL 44.

 

I think this is one of the worst stock tank grinds in the game (someone claims Leopard PTA is worse, don't have it so not sure).

 

I was at around a 38-40% win rate (after 60-70'ish games?) when I unlocked the middle gun and shortly after I hit 100% crew. Started doing well and it didn't tank too long to unlock upgraded engine and tracks.

 

Currently have a 56% win rate in it
