Nah I much prefer the KV-3.  The gun is a tad overrated on the Tiger and only works if you hit the target and for such a accurate one its not much better than a Russian 175mm.

This tank is so far behind the current meta and powercreep it's just sad. There are worse tier 7 heavies, like the Tiger P and the AMX, but still it's quite unsuitable for most games nowadays.

 

I've 3 marked it and it's a pain to play. Pure masochism.

 

This tank sucks especially on maps like Tundra, where there is no correct place to take it and the newer maps of WG are bad for it too.

 

Every hit you take is some sort of critical, and the tank is the dream target of any SU-130, Scorpion G or artillery player, who will all go out of their way and expose themselves to huge risks or even certain death to have a chance to hit you. Sure your gun can be effective against tier 9s, but WGs stupid map design always puts you in spotting range for them and you can be sure that immediately 3-10 guns will zero in on you and won't allow you to do anything. And nobody falls for the sidescraping of the Tiger anymore. Everyone knows when not to shoot you, even tomatoes in Defenders.

It's far more playable than the Tiger I.

 

At least the original Tiger is fairly fast and has good DPM...

 

I am trying to 3 MoE it too, currently on 85%. I must be insane as I'm trying to 3 MoE the Panther I too.

You can, but only if they are idiots and shoot your sides. Nobody shoots the sides of tigers nowadays. They just wait for you to reverse for a shot and then hit your front. Sidescraping with these tanks just doesn't work against anyone anymore.

Well I 3 Marked the Panther I and now I'm onto the Tiger I.

 

I play it with the assumption that it has little to no armour, also more like a TD than a traditional brawling HT. 

 

Hovering at about 88% but I'm pretty sure I can get up to the magic 95%. 

 

Slower tanks do annoy me as they're far less tactically flexible and when you're spotted it's far harder to get into cover.

I play mine sporadically for the 100% mark but using Rammer Vents Laying Drive currently (though I probably should change that for Optics)

Click the "person" (go to your profile) - icon on top left of the forum, just under the forum icon. Select "My Settings" and go to "Notification Options", you should be able to untick the Email option there and just remember to click "Save changes" before you leave.

I had a WR of 58% at one time.. Playing to win. Since 2013.

 

600 games. I came back 2 months ago.. Playing the Tiger I now is pure pain... Its totally a turd. completely useless. My WR plummets. No effect on the games. The gun feels horrible. Or its just that kind of targets it meets now. I have zero fun playing it. Its soo slow. It felt much nimble before.

 

As soon as you meet OP premiums, you are just XP pinata with no way to do anything.. Arty skrewed.... 

 

No way I can support a game that totally disrespect such a tank.

Note that the tank is not worse than before. If anything it's better, but throughout the years WG powercreeped everything and introduced so many OP premiums that they made such tanks borderline unplayable.

 

Of the 3 early days tier 7 heavies only the T29 is really viable in the game today. The IS can manage, because it only needs to put 3-4 shots to score good damage.

Tiger I and Tiger II are simply awful. Sorry, these are iconic tanks. The game has made them awful. Even light tanks can penetrate their armour but the opposite doesn't seem true. They need to correct this.

Heavy tanks do not automatically have huge armor. On the opposite, lights can pen the sides rear, and sometimes weak spots of a heavy. Tiger I is not awful and Tiger II is still better than the French t8's, and maybe even the 110. (I hate being defenseless when inevitably you have to reload with the 50 100).

For Tiger I (H) I use vents, rammer, and bounty optics.

R.I.P all tigers. The game does not even get close to how the tanks performed during WWII. Its a pure shame. They should just remove the armor,add paper and some speed. Atleast they would be more usefull then. Now light tanks penetrate them in the front. The entire tigershow is a big BIG joke. WG should be ashamed.
