Been meaning to post this for awhile, was perma-tracked most of the match but my teammates were able to benefit from it. Shot 47 times, 43 non-pens and over 6k damage blocked.

I still have a lot of fun in the big boy.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

There are times I feel the same way about the KV-5.  Other times I feel like it’s a beast that fears no others.  Finally got a “M” recently after many tries.

2 marked my KV-5.  Is good tank.  Certainly not obsolete by any means, but it CAN be nerfed temporarily by a smart player.

Definition of power creep. 

Can people make it work, sure.

But there are countless better options.

I rarely play my Gorynych because that pen just doesn’t cut it. Everything else about it seems like a fun heavy, but that pen is just bad

Having 2k battles in the KV-5 it's definitely not anywhere near as good as it once was. The endless upwards trend of premium tank AP pen cemented it as a mediocre heavy.

 

The tank is still at times the absolute most fun tier 8 premium in the game. Those times however are substantially outweighed by the games where your armor is butter your gun is useless and your mobility repeatedly let's you down.

 

I still play mine alot, but I wouldn't actually recommend the KV-5 in it's current state to another player.

1 of my favorite tanks in the game, 2 marked it with a great crew. It can carry the team if you know what you're doing. Got a Kolobanov and a Radley-Walthers in it.

Thanks to xRoni7x for this awesome sig!

Shoot prammo - you will still earn some silver... BUT - I want a buff AND skiped PMM. Never understood the fun with PMM.

I love my kv5 but it's not what it once was, I still have decent games sometimes, it's been forgotten about consigned to the history books

It can still ram good but it's armor feels pointless & some of these newer premiums I cant even pen with gold (I'm looking at you defender!)

Still waiting for something to be done with him

I still like it. But it has been badly power crept. It needs significant pen buff for both standard and premium ammo.

 

P.S. At least it was good for WS or PG PvE modes but WG has nerfed them to pointless state. 


Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

They won't buff it. According to the spreadsheet it's a good tank, mostly when it's very top tier and doesn't have to fight tier 8 TDs. If they do anything they will just copy the crap PC changes and make it no longer unique, personally if that happens I would prefer if they just left it UP.

I know full well it will never get a buff but one can dream

I love the KV5 .  It’s one of the few tier 8 premium tanks that is actually worth the money .

They removed the rear and side armor and buffed the front hull and AP pen, so they could remove PMM. No idea if they kept those changes but they got as far as public test last I looked. Especially considering it was still only like 210 on the front for a loss of like 60MM on the sides and rear, it was a zero out of ten in my book. Clearly balanced by someone who hadn't played the KV-5.

Absolute trash can.

 

Potato armour, mobility, gun accuracy/pen. 

 

Got to 93% than luck potatoed out. XP pinata. Farm me whilst it's hot! Untradeable too. Great!

Isn't it like less than 2k combined to 3 mark? It was when I did it.

Nah, need about 3k combined.
