I heard the KV-4 was a great tank years ago. But now, its such  painful grind! I'm really want to get ST-1 and the KV-4 is the only line to get there. Is there a way I can grind faster? (Without spending gold of course)

I didn't mind the KVFortress although I played it years ago, I'd imagine it's still fairly decent given the "corridor" meta, although not sure how 1.0 changes things.

 

As above, can use xp boosters, use those free xp boosters that are probably sitting around as well.

 

It's a good tank to learn to abuse game mechanics sidescrape in.

Unlock the 107mm Zis gun. though it is not used in future tanks and is exclusively used on this tank, this tank is only slightly playable with this gun.

 

Try to keep your distance. You will be bottom tier most of the time. Even when not bottom tier your turret can generally be penned with 180 pen. Most tier 8 tanks can pen that very easily. Being at a distance will making hitting that weakspot difficult. The gun is more accurate than the traditional soviet 122mm so distance should not be an issue.

 

try to angle your turret like you would do in an E-100 or maus between shots.  While it may not be very effective, it may save you occasionally.

 

Sidescrape. This is the one thing this tank does well. I mean i have bounced s1 gold while sidescraping in this tank (i have no idea what he was thinking). you can overangle a bit and get away with it so do not be worries about that. you may try to overangle to bait a shot and then pull out to shoot.

 

Some of my best battles have been when the enemy team has disregarded my cupola and gone for my side/ hull, so pray for stupid enemies. When top tier go ham, there is very little to worry about, i have bounced shots of my [edited]!

I've never recalled a time when the KV-4 was considered good. Sure it was called the KV-Fortress, but what many don't realize that fortresses are more or less redundant. And sure that armor can be good, but not after 2015.

 

Grind for that top 107mm gun, getting there I used the old 122mm but fired almost nothing but HE with a small reserve of APCR.

Upgrade all modules, Over angle your armor (KV-4 has great side armor), Use RoF of top gun, Use XP boosters. Profit :)

In reverse order of preference.

4. Boosters
3. Frontlines
2. Boosters AND Frontlines
1. Free XP.
