Played a few games . Still to make up mind on it . The tank feels a bit sluggish . The bloom seems bigger . If you take the time to aim in there doesn't seem to be any difference . The biggest difference is that I do not have the confidence of pulling the trigger on snap shots . Not sure yet about the difference in camo before and now .

Enjoy the 183 while it lasts . No idea how bad it will be when it gets nerfed . If you don't have it yet then use your free xp to grind it and experience the most fun tank in the game in all its glory !!

 

it was already nerfed to death a couple of years ago. 

 

The new additional nerf will be like creamating the corpse.

 In my humble opinion, the nerf was unwarranted. From what I've seen, the Jg. Pz. E100 now does everything the 183 does, but better. The 183 needed something special, and that's gone now.

If WG want to nerf something I wish they'd nerf the KV1.

The KV-1 is not really in need of a nerf IMO, it's just the general tier 4 to 5 jump that makes it seem strong.

It's the only tank I really seem to have trouble with. the only place to pen it is in the side, and that's not guaranteed. all the rest is red. there's a couple of blank spots on the front, but you need to be close to hit those, but if you're that close then likely you're getting hammered! and with many tanks you can shoot their turret in the side when they turn it, but the KV1's is red all around. to make matters worse, their commanders are usually good players and know what they're doing. quite often it takes three greens acting together to take them out. and good red teams will use them as bait.

True, it is a favourite of seal clubbers. You should get one, it's a great training tank for learning heavy driving techniques. And, as you know, it's quite forgiving to the driver.

 

Actually I don't have much trouble with it, but most of my tier 4/5s are pretty high-pen guns. The KV-1 is a nightmare for autoloaders and pea-shooters like the M3 Stuart etc.

I did get one on this main account a while back, and thought I was going to kick derriere, because I play best in HT's, but haven't done great in it. a 30 day WR of 47.37% doesn't compare that well to my best and fave HT the Churchill III @ 71.33% (on new acc)

Tier 7 is full of bullstool tanks...

 

The whole tier needs to get reworked.

 

Doesn't mean WG gonna do it.

If you look at ESH on Blitzstars, it is his favorite tank so it is no wonder he is making noise about a nerf.

I think you have kind of answered your own question.

 

Dealing with the KV1 requires understanding of what that tank can do to you and so you need to understand your own chosen tank in order to best determine your course of action. If you're in a MT or LT the last thing you should be doing is getting up close. In another HT, then again you're going to need to use your own tanks advantages over it as much as possible.

Unless angled properly KV-1 is easy to kill. There are two plates on the front easily penned even at distance if you aim right in before firing.

Yup, an isolated KV is also easy to kill in a faster tank. COD it and shoot it in the b um.

What was so interesting about that video ? Name me one point raised by Noobka which he hasn't repeated on multiple occasions . Everyone just camps in 183 , nobody ever moves out of spawn , I am so awesome I can do 5k damage in every other game , it kills the so called " dynamic " gameplay ,  I don't like spotting for a 183 , blah blah blah . He has said the same things in just about every 183 video he has ever made .
