Guys, any one feel that performance of KV 2 got degraded after patch 3.9 update. Now this tank missing lot of well aimed  shoots and also now HE shells are not as effective as it was before. 

Need your opinion on this.

I've played 180 games in the kv2 since 3.8 because my ping is really bad at the moment (no wifi, on 4g).  Its a good tank for bad ping.

 

I dont think its got better or worse.

 

Its still as trollish as always.  Some games are a delight and you can one-shot a few tanks and do 3,000 damage ... and the next game you'll take 5 shots and none will hit the target.

^^^ This is my feeling also.  Kevin is as trollish as ever, no real change in this update.

 

We had a discussion a few weeks ago about how there appeared to be a decrease (in a recent update) in HE splash damage from an average in the 400s to an average in the 300s.

Got to agree totally with the OP, Kevin has been nerfed on the quiet.

She is not doing anywhere near as much dmg as she did previously.

I am finding I need to use APCR to get enough dmg at times.

I've just watched a KV2 twice hit an M4 and only do low damage so I was thinking the same thing!

I'm not sure. I've had one hit me (LTTB) on the side With HE, and It did around 320 damage, which is a pretty low roll.. Combined with how fragile LTTB is, a KV-2 HE shell that penetrates would normally one-shot me. Maybe it was just bad RNG..

If it's any compensation for you KV-2 drivers, I got one-shot by one on Mines in my Cromwell B. The guy was a thorough gentleman about it and actually messaged me an apology afterwards! 

 

The game immediately before that: an unseen KV-2 on Rockfield took the remaining ~75% of my life (Cromwell B) from across the map!

Wasn't me. I did that to a Nashorn and a regular Cromwell. Good larf all round, and the Cromwell's team won the day in the end.

 

The Kevin has been blunted, but it was always a dull instrument. Much like most Kevin's I've ever met... :p

 

And less of a stress reliever as well. Doesn't seem to make those miracle snap-shots like it used to.

Hmm...

 

 Tier 6-7, 3 shots, 3 hits including a St. Emil one shotted. None of them with more than slivers of tank showing, all could have easily potato'd.

 

Poor, poor souls. 

 

Update, no, it's not really been nerfed that hard. Still does peek-a-boom like a champ.

 

(4 shots, 4 kills, 2.8K damage. They knew I was around there, still they kept coming at reload intervals...)

With HE shells you can't be sure that how much damage you will make, its always a surprised package. Ones I even roasted full HP British AT(not sure Tier 6 or 7) with single shoot .But yes on an average on the front armor KV 2 was able to make 350 HP damage now it even makes less then 100 HP even after using calibrated shells equipment.  .

But now KV 2 is missing lot of shoots no matter how well you aimed , I missed 4 or 5 shoots on single tank when it was AFK and I was completely steady  . Previously if you fire a shoot with proper aim it was almost sure that it will hit the target , but not it missing like anything .

 

 

WoT Team surely changed Target hitting ratio .

OH OH I KNOW

KV-2 RNG was really really really bad during 3.7 because it sensed that 3.8 was going to be terrible. During 3.6 KV2 has decent RNG as 3.7 wasn't that bad of an update. During 3.8 KV-2 had a little bit better RNG and so now we have 3.9 'Meh'

So far I've seen playing kv-2 in this update 3.10 is going to be 'Meh'

No that's not it, I think WG is quietly nerfing derp machines like KV-2, I experienced this 300 damage rolls more often nowadays. I think I am gonna sell my Su and move on with other tanks, gonna discontinue TDs anyway

People maybe are complaining about derp tanks and maybe WG are taking an action against it
