I would re consider your equipment loadout, I think that rammer for improved rate of fire, vents, for improvement in all crew skills and gunlaying drive to improve the vehicles aim time are better for you.  In terms of provisions, I usually would run combat rations for improvements in all crew skills again and if I feel spendy I add premium fuel to improve traverse and acceleration.

 

After that I would watch _anon's (I think?) video on sidescraping and bushka's video on how not to explode for angling ...  Let those lessons sink in a bit and then try to implement them. It's a slowish vehicle, you will need to think a bit ahead ...  Against a KV-1s with the 122mm, as the OP has mentioned, he's a long reload, after he fires take advantage of it to pump him a couple of times and get into cover right away!  Stick with the other heavies, don't wander off on your own, buska's video on how to get to 60% is helpful ...

The KV-1 is one of the best tier five heavys. Watch tutorial videos or return to lower tiers to practice and learn how to battle.

 

Would the Churchill make it into that best list? I really like it.

Players who oppose DogFace can feel the cold, metallic, 122 millimeter end of my IS-6’s gun to

 

their face, and say bye bye to their precious RatBat as their dead body is dragged into a dark

 

corner to be left for the wolves.

I assume you've already gotten better but the KV-1 the T-150 Kv-3 and KV-4 play the same way, your sides are INCREDIBLY strong tier for tier. Specifically the KV-4. Your front is weak, all ways will be, angle your tank at about 22 degrees at most and your gun isn't great gun it can do the job, if you ever need help in the KV-1 just send me a message I'd be glad to help and I recommend watching bushka on blitz he is great and explaining things

Go in a training rom with another player and practice side scraping there

Wiggle and jiggle and shimmy and shake.

 

Watch some Tina Turner videos and mimic what her 1920s Charleston flapper dress does with your tank.

 

Should be good then.

 

I'm going to assume you are alone in positions to get swarmed or not hiding weak spots?

Dude, you’re using the KV-1 wrong. It’s OP as the [edited]pre nerf OBJ140. See, the thing is, if you poke your face out in front of a 122mm gun with 400 alpha and ridiculous pen IN A TIER 5 HEAVY, you ARE going to get killed. Play conservatively. Don’t just grind one line hard, go back to lower tiers and learn game sense.

I used to be absolute [edited]at tier 7 and 8, with the SP1C and T-54 ltwt. I practiced for a month at tiers 5 and 6 with the VK 28.01 and I got a lot better. (by the way that thing is fkn OP.)

Slowly...denoobing...
