Is KV-5 still worth getting (assuming it pops up from advent calendar)?

Yea tier 9 HTs are a problem

And 112, IS-6, 110, KV-4, O-Ho, IS-3 (and its clones), soon WZ-111, and even the Löwe. T-54 proto is a tough nut also.

Below 220 penetration simply does not cut any more. I am speaking on flat ground, no hard cover...above mentioned tanks are a bitch to kill. I run T-150 for ages, and know the gun well. 

Yes, KV-5 can ram, and is higher/more mobile, better gun handling...theoretically it can flank or shoot from point blank/from above, negating angles, but that can be used rarely in this meta.

This meta is fine for the KV5. None of those tanks are a real problem for it given your competent (bar the O-ho) 

The only thing that really ever gimps the KV5 is range

I agree with Nutmeg for the most part, and never really liked the KV-5 for a long time.  But three of them in a platoon, or two with an IS-6, and you have serious don't give a shit bully fun potential.  

For solo-pubbing or wanting to carry games, either the Spersh or the IS-6 is a better pref choice, and the new E5 or M4 49 (although not pref) even better.

I like it but it got powercreeped too hard. Fighting M4 49s and soon swedes wont be fun. It's only really good for bullying T7/6s.

Even that it does not do as good as above mentioned tanks. That weakspots are known to everyone and their mother...and with WZ-111 LFP buff, one of the rare tier 8 heavies vulnerable to tier 6 guns without gold ammo frontally.

Noobs, l2armor!!

shot_891.jpg

the last tank ofc kills me, because my tard team fucks it up before that

In regards to buy or not buy, welllll....

...I dont know, its certainly a very capable tank (70% win after 200 solo games) but its by time very frustrating, yet other games its yolos forward and stomps everyone hard, it does need a good crew though, since it will be detracked a lot and it can use every % of mobility and gun handling it can get (i myself just use my KV4 crew, they have nice overlap)

If I did not already own it, I would buy the leKpz M41 90 GF. Because (a) it's good, (b) it prints silver in randoms, (c) in Stronghold skirmish teams it is awesome and with credit boost turned on regular makes 75,000 silver per game. It has no camo, and is horrible looking and black, but it's just so good.

I have totally trash stats with this tank. Yeah, maybe its because I played it a lot when I was baddie (I am a still baddie but just a in a better version). I have 900 battles, 50% WR and 1,5K DPG FeelsBadMan. I am thinking that I will give one more try to this tank.

 

P.S. Can someone teach me how to meme with this "beast"?

Makes perfectly sense, actually. Pref mm + high DPM + shitload of HP + good armor + not THAT slow as other similar tanks

The only thing it has going for it is the DPM really but even that doesn't work if you are in a game with T9s in it. Or if people peekaboo with you and just shoot your turret and pen every time because it has no armor. If the turret had some armor on it, this tank might actually be good but right now? Nope.

Had to use food + full gold ammo to make it, i even lost credits some games (dammit) but it seems KV5 is still a capable tank ^^

People like me, blueberries who transform into unicums when playing this tank. Not joking even, it's the only tank I got unicum status in. It's a hilarious over-the-top tank when platooned with other KV-5 tanks.
