Hello,

 

Forever a no go tank for me !

 

The gun is not everything, you literally drive a rolling house with a "Suvoroff" target painted on.

 

Is the thing fast enough to be attractive ? I found my dreadnought opponents to be quite vulnerable despite the speed buff.

 

Would only accept it if dropped in a warchest.

 

TLDR : I won't buy a house I must hide to win games.

Weren't you in our bottom-tier platoon on Ardennes when Tempest and I were double-tapping Reds?

 

Between you and me, it may be a pretty epic premium if +/-1 MM becomes a thing... that's why I grabbed that bundle a couple of weeks ago. Slayer, Bizon and Dreadnougt gonna be a great time if never -2.

Yes and it was epic! I've been away since last Monday but will be back this weekend. Might buy it on online store nothing looks like a good deal via trade  in atm

That's kinda fast lol Will give some HEAT'ed reactions lol

I was a little taken aback to see it come to discount so very very soon.  But it’s been at least 2 months since it first launched.  I kinda see it as a “second chance” to pick it up for players who were on the fence or unable to buy it the first time.

What the difference between the Dreadnought and a regular KV-2?  How much better is the gun?

 

Much, much better.

The HE is the same, but the premium (Heat, is it?) gets 250 pen instead of 136  and the AP has 175 instead of 110, so all of a sudden both AP and premium is a really valid option.

And the DN is a lot more mobile.

Sorry, but that's not a fair comparison. You seem to have overlooked that the Dreadnought is a tier 7 while the KV-2 is a tier 6. However, I can agree that the Dreadnought is the better choice out of these two.

Nice. I'm sold. Def going to jump on that deal. I don't think I will be good in it, overall, but it looks like fun.

I did not overlook it.

It's much more better than the single tier that differs them.

For those of you on the edge even after seeing Max showing off having a good game in the Dreadnought, allow me to convince you it's worth it.

 

With the Dreadnought you have a KV-2 at tier VII, meaning that your armor is just a little bit worse (like the KV-2 it still bounces random shells though). That also means that you HE shells will on average deal less splash damage, but that's all OK as its gun is vastly superior in every other way. Most notably, it aims in much, much faster, it is more accurate, it fires faster, and it gets standard and premium shells that actually pen reliably (175mm of AP pen and 250mm of HEAT pen). This means that the Dreadnought is more than capable of going through the front of nearly every tank in the game (even many tier IX heavies) with 700 average damage per shot, and unlike the SU-152 and Slayer SU-152 which have very similar guns the Dreadnought has a full turret and 1200 health (making it much more flexible and better at trading). And as if that wasn't already enough, the Dreadnought is a much faster tank than the KV-2 as it gets a slightly faster top speed, better ground resistances, and a nearly 6 better hp/t power to weight ratio.

 

To sum up, the Dreadnought is a KV-2 that's much faster, much more accurate, and can actually pen most of its shots instead of relying on splash damage. The only downside to it really is that it can be lit on fire rather easily and that it has poor armor, but as long as you keep near teammates and buildings there is no other tank in the game better at quickly popping out of cover, majorly crippling an enemy tank (if you don't destroy them entirely), and pulling back while taking little to no damage in return. If you like the KV-2 you'll love the Dreadnought, and for less than 4k gold the only people I wouldn't recommend it to are those who just absolutely despite the standard KV-2 and don't like derp guns. It's a phenomenal tank, it's one of the few tanks in which I never really care what tier game it is, and it's far and away worth the rather cheap price it's selling for this week.
