Basically it's the "artillery" of Blitz.   25% skill and 75% RNG.  It's a tank that is tailor designed to make a bad player feel productive.  

Pretty much....most of the time it’s just point, wait 6 seconds and fire


I’m sampling the retiree life, of Blitz, not sure if I’ll be returning, but thanks for all of your advice and fun.

KV-2 depends on sacrificing enough political dissidents to Stalin to be able to hit anything. Without doing that you will miss or roll low, of she shell will be eaten by tracks, etc. When the star aline and the reds are dumb then it seems op. When they're not, and the lights know how to exploit its many weaknesses, then it it very hard to do well it it. I need to rebuy mine. Haven't playin it in forever...

Seriously?  The gun is so RNG dependent that I’ve seen them miss stationary targets at under 5m.  I’ve seen, and scored, the cross map one shot kills as well.  But a tank that dependent upon the whims of an algorithm is not all that scary. And if you can’t put 2-3 shots into one before it finishes reloading you’re doing it wrong.  My God, most other Tier VI Heavies can COD the bloody thing.

 

The OP died because fecal matter happens. The KV blooped a blind shot over the hill and it landed on him.  That shot couldn’t be duplicated in a month of Sundays and in no way reflected either player’s skill or lack thereof, let alone the KV-2 being an over the top monster. 


The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.

The Kv-2 is plenty balanced. It had bad armor, bad mobility, and horrid gun handling. This all balances out the 152mm gun. YOU need to learn how to handle Kv-2s while playing fast, lightly armored tanks. Stay moving, and there will be a very slim chance it hits you. And even if it somehow were to get deleted, there are other balanced tanks such as the SU-152 that would do the exact same thing to you.

 

Actually the armour is pretty good.  Hull down you can get some bounces with the 7 degrees of gun depression.

does anyone also feel the kv2 should be deleted? the other day i was in ky mt 25 and i go up a hill and spot i go back down and i am behind a hill when i get one shooted by a kv2 on the other side of the map. how does it have that acuuracy to hit a mt25 on the other side of the map when imam behind a hill.

im sick of being oneshotted

you dont get to play

and you need no skill to play a kv 2 thats why i dont have it, just sit and derp so frustrating :(

 

 

No skill to play?  It has horrid gun handling, and bad reload.  In 1v1 and up, you have to use every single one of your brain cells.

KV-2s aren't that hard to kill. Many KVs succumb to the head shot against the rear hatch...

Don’t sit still in a LT while spotted when there’s a KV-2 in play? Learn to play Tier 6? I don’t know what else to say. The KV-2 can’t hit a moving target reliably at all outside point blank range, and he takes a long time to aim. So...you were sitting still for far too long.

 

intelligent response. Makes perfect sense. This op reminds me of a traffic incident I most recently saw. Nothing adult like about shifting responsibility when we alone can change the outcome with a little bit of reading and research.

My problem with the KV2 is hte damn 900 point hits through decent armor, I have done and had other players do it to me. It is stupid to be knocked out of the game with one shot because RNG decreed it when your Heavy tank with 70+ facing armor and 950+ HP left shall die. I killed a fresh KV2 frontal armor today and just lost a fresh KV1 S soon after.

I'm just tired of seeing 4 in every game at tier 6 (trying to grind the Type 58). Like it's big brother the 183, it turns the game into an RNG slot machine.

I have mixed feelings on the KV2. I also hate getting one shotted. seems so unfair. Also hate driving it too. Sold mine quickly. Then again, I love killing KV2s.Not that hard if no one else is spotting you.

I just do not like what they do the game, if they could not get lucky and kill mediums and heavies in one shot, we would see less of them and stopping for a second in fast TD and lights would not be instant death. I am also pretty sure that IF people are using cheat programs like aim bots and shot tracing programs they are using KV 2s since I have seen far to many KV2s just "find" me and to many shots that seem to find that spot on a tank despite iffy gun control on even aimed shots. 

 

Part of the reason I got a KV2 was I needed to figure out what the weakness of the beast are, and some people do not seem to be suffering the same ones I see (could be just observer error) ignoring that I  am now convinced it is bad for the Tier 5/6 world since 80 mm armor pen on the 152 allows them to be just good enough against the solid armor tanks that you see 3 or more every fight, and that means the games turn into RNG slot machines. For example I fought a battle where we had my KV2 and a S100Y, they had two KV2s. MY kV2 faced off vs one theirs early, he fired first, sent his shot over yonder, I blew him up on a shot from the front. My second shot took out there second KV2 the slightly rolled out of cover trying to reload and we rolled the match. I have plenty the other way. 

 

Suggestion nerf the 152s HE armor pen (like almost all other HE at this tier) and maybe give it a minor buff somewhere else.

Problem is, you don't know you've been spotted til it's too late and you're dead.

I've owned the KV2, and while it is great fun to vaporize a tank with it....I think the tank should be deleted from the game.  It really ruins the gameplay.

 

Also, having owned the KV2 and knowing how awful and slow the aiming is, I do think there are people using cheats that allow them pinpoint accuracy over ridiculous distances.

Been that person in the KV2. I know how horridly inaccurate the gun is if you're not using cheats and hacks. The problem is, there are people using those, and their KV2s are able to hit a speeding light tank on the other side of the map behind a hill. How do I know? It has happened to me more times than I can count.

Bots clear it up. Often I get erased in one stroke by a KV2, from long distance, after barely coming to a stop. if stopped at all and I always think its so unfair, then I say something like "Hate Kv2s" and hit esc. I know how bad that tank sucks to drive. Has to be bots.

 

Wheres can I get a bot?

I took one down a couple games ago with a St. Emil in two shots and he missed me while I was backing up.

 

I actually find KV-2s pretty crap when they are red and I'm in my St. Emil.  

 

Probably just the player base.
