What are the playstyles of each, and how do I know which is best for me?

T150 is basically the kv1 but not quite as op

Kv1s goes 45 Khm with a 400 alpha boomstick

Kv2 has a 152mm nuke that hardly hits anything (but one shots things when it does)

 

EDIT: I’d go with the t150, as it has the most armor and gives a new player a better chance of survival than the other two

I mean, I don’t really care THAT much about mobility. I am more concerned about being the matriarch or the team and being able to get to a heavily contested area and hold against the push. I’m not too aggressive, I more or less like defense. Basically, instead of flanking, I prefer to angle, sit around, take some shots, and fire back without taking too much damage.

Out of those three Tanks, the KV1s would suit you then. In my worthless opinion anyhow. 

I would explain why but i do not want my Heineken to get warm.

Do not forget to take into account the Credit Coefficients, if you're hungry for credits. T-150 is not the greatest in that area. http://forum.wotblit...-few-new-tanks/

From what you described the T-150 would suit you best.  KV-1S is also strong.  Would not recommend the slot machine that is the KV-2.

I am now the #1 ranked E75 on the NA server!

Hmm. I looked at the stats. Doesn’t the KV-1S have less armor than the KV1 or T-150?

T-150 - smallest gun (still big compared with tier) most armor, least speed

KV1-S - big old gun, not great armor, borderline medium tank mobility

KV-2 HUGE gun, some armor, not much mobility

 

The T-150 Is basically a KV-1 at tier 6 with a tiny bit less armor for the tier and a harder hitting gun

The KV1-S is a fairly unique tank that combines enough armor to bully tier 5's with a gun larger than a tier X medium tank's and enough speed to hide between peek-a-booms

The KV-2 is an RNG dependent vehicle that will alternately do 3000 damage in a Tier VI - VII game and 300 in a game with Tiers V - VI

 

As far as the lines go, the T150's line keeps the trends of slow speed, very strong frontal AND side armor, which allows them to side-scrape and hold back enemies with more accurate, (not that much more accurate) less damage,(still a lot of damage compared w/ meds) faster firing (not a machine gun by any stretch) gun.

The KV1-S / IS# line gets more armor on the turret, a crazy low profile that allows you to hide behind very dubious little hills, pike noses that work best pointed straight at the enemy, maintain above average speed for a heavy, and get guns that hurt a lot but might be doing all of their hurt to the rock next to your target.

 

Edit: personally I liked them all fine, I prefer the SU-152 to the KV-2 for 152mm wreckage

WoT blitz is better than WoT PC imho because no arty and +/- 1 mm.

T-150 then. Not concerned about mobility, kinda passive, angle, yeah T-150 is the best for you then.

That describes the t150 almost perfectly

Also this, we don’t need any more kv-2s kemping bush, shooting HE at tracks, and going town on Middleburg.

I've been rehabbing the KV-1S and now consider it an absolute joy to play. Mobility is quite good so getting to spots and adapting to the battle is quite possible compared to the other tanks. Your armor is the trade you make as it can be exploited by reds, however your LONG reload on the boomstick means you are using cover and armor is not as necessary as something like the KV-1 with pew-pew gun. Run to a spot, fire a big shell from a gun that can be troll, use cover... repeat. You are essentially a support heavy and can NEVER go alone so if that sounds like a negative then it is not the tank for you. FOr me personally, the KV-1S has replaced the KV-2 as my "fun times" tier 6 heavy derper.

The KV-2 is a tank that 40%ers depend on.  It is one of the few tanks in the game that allows a subpar player to effect the battle in ways far beyond their actual capabilities.  Can't make any other tank work?  No problem! Wargaming has the tank for you.  Just hop into the KV-2 and give that slot machine handle a pull. BOOM! ONE SHOT.  Now you can YOLO forth, die, and still have your highest damage game ever.  Congratulations.

If you find that you lose more often then you win it may be time for you to admit that "the team" isn't the problem...

with KV-1s you can carry 6 noobs, its fast, good handling, good alpha, good armor... my personal opinion the best tank in tier 6.


 

Maybe the worst noob in NA

for me anymore the kv1s feels like a turreted td with its uber slow reload. id prefer if it was given the option of mounting a 100mm but as is its excellent for peekabooming. the t150 is the way to go for angling and holding flanks.

 


I'm good at this game I promise

I love the KV-1s, but with it's long reload it can put you in difficult situations without a team. And we all know you generally can't rely on a team for help. So I would go with the T-150 as well. I used this tank back in the day after the KV-1. It taught me how to use a Russian heavy. If you do well in the T-150,  the rest of the line will be similar.  The T-150 line is pretty consistent in what type of gameplay they ask for. The meta of tiers 5-6-7 is brawling, and the T-150 brawls very well. I used to run a platoon with a uni that mentored me, and I would run T-150 and he would run KV-1S. It was damn effective, as most guys would double toon 2 KV-1's. I would cover him on his reload, and brawl and soak up dmg. People would jump all over me, and my toonmate would nail them for big dmg as I held the point and kept them tied up.
