i’ve got the kv-4 on my re-roll and getting royally spanked, not won a single battle out of 6 battles!  I can’t even win top tiered!  How on Earth am I supposed to play this poxy thing?

 

I know I know it’s me not the tank but man I cannot get it to work at all...

Any advice on how to play it, would be very welcome.

Hi

 the KV4 can be tricky yet effective.... try not to go straight on with it angle at 45 degrees ish with barrel over tracks.. Also don't use the top tier turret stay with the smaller one it is more effective.

 it is great for side scraping just practice some angles on it first and get a comfortable stance when fighting moving backwards and forwards it will deflect most shots and try not to yolo in it either Sit back a little to start to see what you can and cannot get away with...

 hope this helps.

You are the anvil, rest of the team is the hammer. If top tier, drive straight into the enemy, to stop their momentum. Doesn’t matter how much damage you dish out, your job is to hold reds and soak up damage.

If bottom tier, watch the map and go anywhere you can go and think your HP pool/armor is needed.

Thanks all, I’ll try the turret thing to see if that helps, I am angling it and getting bounces but just either die 1st or last....

Having the same problem, this tank is my worst ever. Have to admit that i only have the tracks and engine upgraded and a 80% crew.

No fun at all, that rustbucket

That makes me happier, you are a lot better player than me ;)

 

I’d played it stock from 75% crew, it’s parked until I can free xp upgrades!

Actually sidescraping works well, angling most of the times -with a bit moving for and back- and the second turret is not bad, same as the 122mm gun, just use APCR more often. I think, my main problem is the crew, a disaster from 75 to 80% and getting slowly better. But i am quite sure, that one will never make to my favourites
