so from what I've read, both the KV3 and KV = free slots? If you have both, two free slots?

I've researched the IS from the KV3, and want to dump it when the free slots come up. Unless there's something interesting to get from the KV3 after the bump up in tiers for it that isn't 70K xp points away...

I get annoyed when my PzIV doesn't get 4 or more kills in a match. But I've not been playing much. Waiting for the 7.3 update.

KV splits to KV-1 (Tier 5) and KV-2 (Tier 6). As long as you have the tall turret researched and the KV in the garage, you will get the KV-2 and a slot for free. KV-3 goes to Tier 7 and is replaced by T-150 at Tier 6. If you have a KV-3 in the garage, you will receive the T-150 and a slot for free.

T-150 will lead to the IS line, topping out with the IS-7. KV-3 will lead to KV-4, ST-I and IS-4.

KV3 will make an awful tier 7 tank, unless they tweak it. But I like free stuff, so, cool.

It does get some tweaks....if I think about it, I'll log into the test server tonight and grab screen shots of the research trees.

My son has a KV with the tall turret.

We play each others tanks for S&G, makes it more fun that way. He's going Russian and US heavy route.

We both found that if we take the game a smidge less seriously, it's WAYYYYYY for fun.

New Russian tank tree.....



T-150



KV-3



Edit: I should also add that the KV-3 gets a buff to 1300 hit points equipped as shown above.

Thank you!

If the XP really does transfer over, I should be able to research the KV-4 immediately if it remains 53k XP... I have that much saved up on my KV-3.

Let me tell ya... I always considered the KV-3 and the Tiger (regular, not P) to be equal... I beat a ton of Tigers with my KV-3, and similarly was pretty useless too many times when playing a Tiger... If the armor tendencies remain the same in addition to the armor HP buff... it just won't be a fair match at Tier 7 at all.

They threw the "Tank battle simulator" aspect out pretty early if it even ever existed.
They went for gameplay and I'm glad they did. The extra options makes it more interesting IMO. I like tanks, but I'm no purist. I want a fun tank game where I can drive around and blow shit up. Exactly what WOT is.
I have a friend that won't play WOT anymore because it isn't accurate enough for him. He knows weay too many real tank specs and the tweaks thay made for gameplay drive him nuts.

Fun fact: You can change one of the files and have any gun on any tank(display only). The gun still performs like what you have mounted, It just looks different to you. I saw screenshots of some of those giant tier 10 guns on light tanks. pretty funny

Good point. It just will become a never ending race.. which i suppose is the point to keep people interested.

It could be a never ending race, but they'd have to throw in modern technology or it would be downright silly to have M1A1's, Leopards and Type 99's fighting each other with traditional WWII optics and aiming systems.

I'm thinking that World of Airplanes and World of Warships will come out before then...

Looks like it's probably gonna be a case of the stupids all week....5x xp from now 'til Friday morning, plus a bunch of other specials in honor of VE day. This will make it a little easier to get my 25/2 upgraded.

World of Infantry? Then it would truly become World of War..carft. heh. It'd be nice to have to look out for a little bastard shooting a bazooka at you...

Uh oh. I was very happy not to play the M41 as we haven't bonded. Now the M12 is going to be 1/2 price this week?

Played the T20 and had a couple good battles last night. I killed an obj 704 and IS4 in the town of Ensk.

I've been playing the Churchill a bit for the last few weeks. It's more fun than it has a right be.
