Damn money woes, these x5 weekend have got me more tanks than I can afford unlocked now.

KV1, T1HT, M4, 3601, T34-85, StuG, hellcat, so many choices, so few credits.

And..and you know what tanks I hate? Russian tanks. Especially KV-1 and KV-1S!
Who the hell balanced those things?
Fully upgradrd tier V and VI tanks of other nations can't ever seem to scratch them, regardless where I shoot.

The KV-1S is pretty loltastic now that it has a 122 non-derp in T6, but the KV-1 is actually pretty fairly balanced.  At least, I've never had any particular problem with them.  Hell, now that they don't get the 107 or 152 at that tier, it's downright enjoyable to find one of them on the other team.

KV-1 is a pain when you're a mere T4 TD that has trouble penning them

I use to hate the KV-1. But when the top guns where removed, I never had a issue with it. I still get the odd bounce, or "that one didn't go through!" time to time but my fear of them has disappeared.
If I agreed with you, we would both be wrong

It's much less of a pain now that they can't pop you like a grape with a single hit from the 107.

Where are you shooting them? The KV-1 has the least penetration and average all around armor compared to the other tier 5 heavies, and the KV-1S has subaverage armor all around!

I have no issues penetrating a KV-1 with my Churchill, nor my own KV-1, nor the T1 HT, nor the M4, not the Panzer 4 either.

I could even pen the KV-1S with most of the aforementioned tanks as well, and tier 6 tanks go through its armor like butter.


Also Russian end tier tanks like the IS-4 and IS-7 are also useless and not used too much in clan wars anymore. Blame the Americans and the Germans.

Tell em about it. I have two fully upgraded US Tier 6 tanks (M6 and M4E8A2) and 1-on-1 I can never win against a 1S.
I need to hit it 5-6 times to kill it, it needs to hit me twice. Even tough we're the same tier..... :|

A medium is not usually intended to successfully solo a heavy of the same tier except by bushwhacking them at short range.

...this sounds like working as intended?

Not to mention Trashman is probably taking the first hit from a KV-1S and letting it pull back and spend over 14 seconds to reload and hit him again.

I saw 3 sheriffs in an encounter match, 2 on the enemy side and one on our side.

I was in my slow as hell SuperPershing, the sheriffs were in JT8.8's

I managed to hug the side of one of them, was just about to put the finishing round into him (after having done more than 750 damage to him) and then a teammate swiped what was going to be my kill.

So.

bloody.

Those are not screenies as me with sheriffs, those are screenies of me as the sheriff.

It really depends on which tiers you drive. The majority of sheriffs will often only drive tiers 9s and 10s for whatever reason. If you mainly drive tiers 6 or 7 or below, you are most likely not going to see many sheriffs. We are encouraged to drive all tiers but it is not a requirement.
