World of Tanks Roll Call

Imma gonna give this a try. I always liked the brute force aspect of the KV-5 (Duh!), particularly useful when high tier. Given it never has to face Tier X tanks it can even perform
well at Tier IX. The main problem with it is the large R2D2 unit perched on the front of the upper hull. Anyone that has a basic knowledge of the KV-5 just shoots me there,
usually making my life expectancy a fairly short one. Setting it up as a Ram Master might reduce the amount of time red tanks have to shoot at my R2 unit as panic may well
occur when they see this beastie lumbering in on them for a ram. Plus, I won't be sitting back giving them all the time they want to bang away at my weak point(s).
I also believe it is getting buffed significantly with the next patch, including a 152mm gun!
Report to follow.

Hmm. Definitely NOT having the success with the KV-5 that QB demonstrated.
Been unable to get the ol' girl up to enough speed to ram anyone. Plus, all my battles have ended up with my getting kinda swarmed by
the Red guys so no real chance to focus on ramming. Will keep at it for a while longer.
Also, change in rumors. It is not the KV-5 that is getting its gun buffed. It is the Type V Heavy with the 150mm gun. Just what it needs.

Did you put the turbo on it and train your driver up on controlled impact? Add the reconfiguration and hardening equipment? Are you a Unicom? Oh wait, I think we found the issue...
 
Whooa! OMG! Check this out.
My first reaction was "Too much! Just making things even more complicated!" However, after watching the whole thing it starts to have a bit more appeal.
The mechanics of it all actually seems pretty straight forward. The problem, as I see it, is that unless you want to give up some small, competitive, edges
for the purposes of your sanity, you are pretty much going to want to take advantage of these modifications. Small as they may be. I think I like this and
understand the appeal. Sure, it's just another money grab by WG. Although you can buy the upgrade sets for credits and the fine tuning you get by having the
tank as a premium or elite status. At least I think that's the way it works. Doesn't mean it can't be sorta fun as well (for a change).
"How many tanks did you say you have, mTk?"
And there, folks, lies the problem.

That's great. Now if they could just put some f***ing new maps into the mix, the game might be a whole hell of a lot more interesting.
 
I don't think we'll be alone w/our complaints if the HE rework messes with our favorite HE derp tanks. I haven't seen WG explain how they're going to handle that. Players'
argument is that we payed real $ for our KV-2(R) (and others) and now it has been devalued (maybe). That's pretty much been why WG has taken a vow (correctly or not) to not
mess with premium tanks.
I've got new, favorite tanks atm. The Borrasque, that I just did 3400 damage and 5 kills, is one. The others are the Chinese medium Tier VIII 122 TM and the T-59. They've been
treating me pretty well recently.
Here's my 122 TM. If anyone doesn't have this it is worth looking into. One of those well rounded mediums that does everything pretty well while delivering a 400 damage alpha
round!
That is one sexy camo!
