    Oh no they changed the name of the type its ruined
    The 3601 will be slowed down to make it a heavy, atleast the medium version can flank to not ding with the 88. It'll be a T1H one tier higher.

    3601 will be a pretty shitty heavy unless they give it something better than the short 88 at tier 6
    It's really just a name change. I don't see why people say it WOULD or WILL be a shitty heavy. It pretty much is a heavy.

    Okay now I see why you say that. I think it could retain its speed as a heavy tank (maybe a SLIGHT decrease, I grinded it with just the stock engine so I'm just going to assume it goes a bit faster)

    I have never actually seen anyone use the KV-5 to its full potential. They usually sit around like ducks and do nothing to cover their R2D2.

    It's an amazing tank. It's back is well armored, it's got good speed and can keep the regulator on pretty much all game. The gun doesn't have great penetration - but if you're smart enough to aim it, it does good damage. Has higher DPM than the Lowe, better armor, faster top speed, no frontal engine bullshit. I just love mine.

    The weak-spot is super easy to cover - just keep moving/turning or literally angle your tank 45 degrees AWAY from the enemy to cover the mini-turret with your big turret. Works every time.

    Just had a forced draw match on Erlenberg because there was too much t8 arty and anybody who moved out was one shotted (well more like 4 shotted but they all landed pretty much at the same time)

    Half of my IS-7's health was taken out because two arty rounds hit the opposite side of the building and did that much splash damage. Remember kids, arty prevents camping

    I felt like an arty player when I missed with the 152 on my KV hit the ground and took someone down to < 50%.

    I thought the rear was the least armored part of that tank, though. I specifically remember getting around to the rear of the tank in my 13/90 to guarantee six penetrations without fiddling around aiming for the miniturret.

    Mini-turret (seems) to have less armor than the rear. Not the actual rear, but the back-side of the tank is what I'm referring to.

    Nice, just had a game where we lost because all our TD's and everyone else left our base, even though it was just me and a KV3 on 1 side of the map out numbered. They could have covered us and easily killed the medium tanks but no, they drove off into the desert and left the base completley empty..

    Super.

    I'd wait for the IS-6 (ETA 5 months) instead of buying the KV-5.

    Depends on how much disposable money you have. I find it a lot of fun, more reliable than my Lowe and generally quite good at printing silver.

    I enjoy my T59 for credit making over the KV-5 and Lowe which I used in the Common Test of 7.1

    Mainly because I prefer medium tanks over Heavy tanks for the most part

    Edited:

    Plus, you know, 40k for a loss ain't that bad

    According to SerB, tier 5-9 TDs will get reduced profitability in 7.2
    Q: at what levels will be reduced yields TD? how many% will be reduced profitability?

    A: From 5 to 9 level. The changes are different for different machines, from -3% to -8%.

    It is almost too stupidly forgiving of driver error though, with its playstyle being "front towards enemy"

    I just got 950XP (nonprem) playing with one hand and chatting in steam overlay the entire game, which would be an impossible feat in any other tank aside from lower tier frenchies

    This is true, and when you're good at it it's pretty terrifying.

    Sometimes I cry at the matchmaking but this time I laughed really hard at it. Just got into a Tier 5 match with my IS, I was top of the board and there were like one or two Tier 6 as well. Fucking goofy as hell. Needless to say I won, 5 kills (not impressive at that level), but no one on my team died at all. Kinda cool I guess.

    WHAT!


    I cant even make bloody profit due to ammo costs now. I can kill several tanks in a round and still have to use every bit of money on repairs and ammo.

    I only had a very basic understanding of tank combat when I first started, and I'm doing great. Go down the Soviet heavy line. (Use the Ms-1 tank and get enough XP to get the T26. Go all the way down that line. The first heavy tank is in that line, and it's really easy to play. Very forgiving if you make a mistake, and all it's guns will teach you the differences in different types of guns in the game. You should also go down the American Tank destroyer line.

    If you're on the US server you can try joining the FP clan, if you're on the EU, you can join the FPEU clan.

    Pretty much this; the Russian tanks are the most forgiving (except the TDs) in my opinion.
    Russian heavies and American TDs / Mediums are the way to go.

    I usually aim for the turret, instead of the body. You could try shooting the little tread flaps in the front of the Tiger P. I never tried it, but I take considerable damage from it in some cases when I use my Tiger P in battle.

    So are they just going to nerf profitability on everything until the only way to have enough money is to have a premium?

    Insanely jealous. How does the T28 fair? My T25 AT seems pretty solid and I like the damage the big gun puts out, but it's front armor is just so pathetic.

    It still seems unfair given that the tiger P can pen me at any part of my frontal armor


    Why the hell is the tiger a tier 7 anyway? It doesn't have the armor for this shit.
