yeah stock kv really sucks... so get 122mm first if possible... until you have track (upgrade it) then turret (not upgrade) and 107mm (upgrade both)... and you will be awesome... but be careful... dont rush.. now everyone knows weakspots/exploit kv... ;[

make sure you pay 20k each for crew... its really worth or you will drive it like boat...

m3lee is almost similar to kv but kv prints money better...

Was in a few games with T-54. I was going 1-on-1 with them in my King Tiger, and everything either bounced or penetrated. And of course they can run circles around me as well. I seriously have not done badly against top-tier medium tanks unless its against the t-54. yikes!

Might need to give up going the KV line and jump onto the russian mediums.

The russian mediums need to be tracked..but lag and shot randomness makes it near impossible

Okay...American mediums....aren't that great...probably want to work on the American heavies now...though the grind to get out of the T1 and M6 will be harsh.

I am absolutely loving the SU-100 at the moment. Its fun to watch dropping KVs down to 20% in one shot.

Yeah, I just gave a go through the lower American tanks and ew. I bought my way through the M2 Medium, the M3 Lee's inaccuracy is making me sad.

if you are not happy about kv then try kv1s or kv13(better than t34)... and make sure you aim thier weakspots...

jack, i dont know why your m3lee didnt make you happy..

i play my m3lee for two days... and its awesome... because i always in higher battle like tier 6-8 (damn lowee and tiger)... i have 70% victory against them... i was just acting like td... that gun is very reliable, fast rof and good... yes sometime i missed but what high rof is for ;p anyway i am going to get t34 before next patch ;p

yes i agree about bad early american tank...

My KV-1S with the teir 7 122mm gun is awesome!

Actually the M6 is a really potent machine. Once you get the 90mm, it becomes a beast due to the great pen. and fast rof.

I was trying to get into WoT and I'm wondering about the Russian tank destroyer line. Tank destroyers always sounded great in theory (sacrifice ability to aim sideways to gain stupid firepower and fairly good accuracy), but given the way this game works, do they really have any advantage over just throwing all my money and experience to get to the IS line (and/or the T-34 and up)?

And no, I don't care about profitability. I'm just curious in terms of pure stats if they're really worth it.
