It is funny how "common wisdom" is not what works for me. I like the derp on KV2 but people say the pen and speed is better on the other. I tried it and hate it. Derp is my gun. So I got the wolverine. Put the derp on it as soon as I could. it was ok. Then I tried the faster, high pen gun on. WOW! I loved it.

So, I guess that mean you need to catch em all. TRY. I mean try them all smile.gif

LOL true. I have been using the 80(?) mm gun on my T-34 (Russian) and it's awesome. I was playing with another T-34 driver and he was saying to use the 57mm "ZiS-cannon" as I call it, but it doesn't give good pen (for me) and seems to bounce often. At least with this 80MM gun I can more often than not cause damage to others, and I have started to forget that I'm in a T-34 and not my KV-1S and play like a heavy hahaha.

I'm guessing you mean the 76mm smile.gif, anyway the 57mm I though was really good aswell, great DPM. Good pen and awesome fire rate, most fun gun in the game biggrin.gif

Here comes 8.4!!! I'm sittin pretty with over 2m credits so I've almost got my KV4. It will be interesting to see the new lineup of tanks. I heard there's some major derp tanks out there now...lol so we'll see..

oh that 83mm MK3 HE ammo thing isn't going to work. It's 85credits to buy, 43credits to sell currently, and they're upping the price to 170 I believe...so half of 170 is 85 so you'll get your money back when you sell...not like the 270 they said...bummer

Yeah, sorry. I meant the 76mm S-54 redface.gif. See I assume the gun is bigger than it is, too lachen.gif.

Anyone play 8.4 yet? Curious to see how it is tonight when I get home. I heard some of the higher tier tanks are totally redicilous. Like one tank was like 1800 damage per shot...lol

It'll be interesting to see if the new tanks have a real weaponary advantage over the current tanks. Could be very exciting!

Nooooooo, never ever do that, unless you are rolling in cash. Converting free XP is far more worthwhile.

The heck? This AT2 tanks is totally redicilous with the amount of armor it has...You gotta have like 175pen to penetrate this tanks front. I find it quite impossible to go against with any other tier 5 tank...
Hmmm...seems like the new TD line is totally insane when it comes to armor and cannon. hmmm...if you cant beat them...join them? Anyone else agree?


Got my KV4 lastnight. I was reading up on the tank and how people like it...well they don't..lol Basically with the crapola gun its only a support tank. So I'll have to keep that in mind when using it...

So is 175pen 390dmg gun for a tier 8 pretty lousy? I think if I can play the KV4 right, it should be a winner, but sofar I haven't been playing it right...dying right away...losing 14k credit each loss...ouch
post #690 of 6617
For a tier 8, yeah that is pretty lousy. I thought the IS was bad having the same gun as the KV-1S with only 175 pen, but the IS-3(tier 8) gets a boost so I won't complain too much. KV4 is hard to play with I would imagine. It's just a slow house built out of concrete on wheels. Be ready to stand infront of your allies to take all the shots, lol.

Anyways, with the medium weekend I just bought me a Sherman on discount. I know a lot of people use it so it'll probably be a pretty derpy weekend. $$$$!
