I appreciate the 20 second reload as I melt the poor bastard that missed my crusader.

I love mine. 17.7 sec reload is a PIA, but a solid heavy.

I'll be honest, I couldn't stand the Russian heavies. The KV-1 alone drove me mad. but the KV-1S. Man was that a step up. all of the sudden the grind was a breeze, i was popping tanks like sore pimples, and i felt like a god.

Then I lost my mind and wanted the RU-251.

Big mistake. I miss my Stalinium so.

The worst heavy in this line. I do better in KV-2 even with the longer reload. This one, team leaves you like you do not exist. Then, good luck with almost 18 secs for reload. Disaster.

I seem to have better wr and avg damage in my Kv1s than Kv2 and prefer not being focused like most KV2’s

kv2 is still pretty fun, but its accuracy and seomtimes pen in upper tiers makes it a bit more frustrating.

KV-2 is derp (nuff said), but you depend a lot on keeping reasonable distance between you and the reds and having the Hand of Stalin miraculously guide your shell. I feel like the KV-1S (w/ derp gun) is a better KV-2, with more speed, accuracy, penetration, and somewhat reliable armor - imo a good trade for 2/3 of KV-2 alpha. If you miss or bounce in close-quarters combat, though... yikes. May Stalin have mercy on your unfortunate soul. 

Usually kinda somewhat half-decent

I even spelled kv1s wrong because I prefer KV-2 over it

KV-1S is better simply because it is not a KV-2 in my world

You gotta use your brains to play it and succeed

KV-2 just point and click; duhhhh

actually it's aesthetically displeasing and I am funny about my shoes.

 


Don't rush inBe patientDon't brawl unnecessarilyKnow your tanks and enemy tanks; 

Know your tanks' role; Knowing maps allows situation awareness; Mini-map is a mighty map;  

Drive to coverFight like you have no armor; Relocate and reset camo oftenBe the lover of cover;

Ok, here.
Reloads are basically almost identical, being about 18-24 seconds for each. Second, kv2 has higher alpha for every shell. Armor, though, you may not believe it but are almost identical as well. This is because lots both have weak armor - tanks can go through both.

I have to correct myself here. As I continued grinding KV1-S (btw, this is all in my second account, GreenWolf2018), things got better. In the total of 406 battles, I was able to get it to 61% of WR, and Ace it eight times.

As for my first comment, besides not having it up to 100% of crew at that time, in a couple of days of grinding, teams were horrible.

Do you even know what you’re talking about? The KV-1S has higher speed, turret armor, accuracy, and pen. Also, 18 sec vs 24 sec for reload is quite a lot.


  Missiles are not a problem, ya'll just jealous you aren't skilled enough to use them (Ok, ok I'm joking.:harp:).
