The KV-1B 756R is beastly if you know how to play it right.

If anyone knows where to hit you though it's a quick exit. Much more reliable taking mediums.

I found the trick is to keep at distance not expose your driver viewport, so angle the tank pretty hard. At range the side armour is good enough to deflect most shots.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great tank, especially in that event, but mediums are so damn strong in SB.

Any advice with the KV2?
Mines pretty much fully researched but I have ZERO luck with it. Maybe one in 10 hits kills the target. The rest does minor module damage. Everyone says 'use the stock HE shells' but they don't seem to do the job. Every time I'm hit by a KV2 even in my heavy tanks I blow up. I always aim at the turret as well..

Last few games I've scored less than 100 points in it and I'm not attacking, trying to hold back and snipe.

I had a lot of success in the KV2 playing aggressive, worked best on the city maps. I would just peek, one shot whoever was there and pull back to reload.

I used the AP shell personally except at 700m+ range. I found it a lot more consistent. Nothing worse than getting the side of a Tiger 2 and not getting the kill with a HE hit when the AP would have been an easy kill.

Make sure not to take too much ammo, it makes you easy to get one shot. I would usually only bring 10 shells and if I used those up it meant I was probably having a good game and could get more at a cap point.

I would also angle my turret between shots and found it could be pretty bouncy.

KV2 sit back and snipe or play peek a boo - it is to slow for CQ.

I haven't been able to play this anywhere near as much as I'd like to lately; only find it fun in a squad and I've had trouble catching my squadron on the weekends.

Looks like there's been some decent fixes in today's weird maintenance - I'm hoping anti-cheat changes as well (not that it's a major problem, I just know a couple of rats that need banning), but other than that it seems to be DM/FM changes.

No T-29 fix unfortunately. Still waiting to pull the trigger on that premium to grind out US Ground Forces, but then I wonder to what end? I'd rather play my Russian/German Tier V's.

So the games officially released now, and they've done it at a pretty logical step compared to most F2P betas with the introduction of Aviation/Army for each of the four main nations and boats in CBT.



Anti-cheat has also been getting shit done lately.

So for people like me trying to get off the World of Tanks Heroin, come try some meth: War Thunder.

South east Asia server numbers are so low that I have never got a tank battle other than Arcade, so maybe some other folks want to join?
Only been playing it for a few days but the game seems fine.

I don't even have the SEA server selected anymore. I just play on the US server.
