What the Kuro and T150 have going for them compared to the ARL is they weather the KV2 storm a lot better when you meet them. Last time I played tourneys Kv2's were plentiful. And if a Kv2 driver is decent he will take a lot of your health in one shot. If you show too much side and overangle they can 1 shot you. But an angled or sidescraping Kuro or T150 can weather the blow and take out the Kv2 pretty easy. The ARL's Achille's heel seems to be meeting up with KV2's, unless at long range.

Nobody mentions that the 30mm of armour on the side of the ARL's turret is prime KV-2 bait?

Or HE bait in general?

 


Thanks to Zennosha and/or Panbun, I have a shiny new signature! Thank you!

Great point. And once someone in a Kv2 takes over half your health with a halfways decent shot of HE it will totally change your gameplan. Or as you said, if they catch you in the right place, easy one shot....:izmena::hiding:

I actually wouldn't think the Kuro. It's armor isnt' really that good for a Tier VI heavy and it's DPM is kinda low too. It's pen isn't even that good at that tier, not horrible, but not outstanding.

 

actually, its dpm is quite good, and is quite nimble, I would say it is A heavy/heavium depending on the enemy's composition. Also, the turret is strong.

Actually, the post before yours did mention that the ARL doesn’t hold up well against the KV-2.

 

I played my first ever tournament this week(!) and started in the ARL, switched to Kuro and ended up in the 1S and staying there.  Had fun, but if we’d been playing in rolling terrain, I’d have probably shocked my clan mates and the reds alike by showing up in my M6. ;)

The M6 is a rare beast in the tournaments!

A true statement, if they hit you! We always have scouts out and one of the main points is to find the KV2. If spotted at a distance the ARL will chew up a KV2 with its gun, while the KV2 lobs shells into the sky or dirt:hiding:

In update 4.10 new tournament rule "Each team must have a minimum of one Tog on team.".
