After the last information, which made clear, that German tanks not only are not nerfed, but actually are buffed in the next patch, I see a lot of Tigers, Tigers, Tigers in all games from tier 5 to tier 9. Also VK's are a lot now.

My question is - What is the benefit for this players to play now with this tanks, that will have some improvement in the future?
If they already had this tanks, there crew should be trained.
If they just buy it, why they do it? What is the advantage?

Might be because those player's enjoy the Tiger!

I take mine out all the time it's a great machine, used it and the T29 last month for the Kill mission was great fun.

On normal server in random.
There was always Tigers before, but now are 2-3 times more then before the patch info to be published.
I just cannot understand, what is the benefit? I do not have problem to kill them :) Ans I also have Tiger and drive it time to time. But why now?

I have seen an increase in Tiger tanks yeaterday. Had a game with 6 Tiger/Tiger II tanks per team. But then again, that was only one game I really noticed it on and I don't mind as all tanks have their weakspots.

I loved playing the Tiger tank's so I say have fun and enjoy playing as a Tiger, or Tiger hunting :)

Many less skilled players played the Tiger(H) because of its WWII reputation. They did badly in the tank.
This will not change after the patch.

Still I thank those players for doing badly, since it got a nice buff now. The increase of tigers is not that high though. Maybe all the summer players finally reached T7?

People want to play their german tanks as long as they are still faster than a T95.....
From all i have read (#1), they (german tanks), will be nerfed hugly mobility wise.
They will get a small firepowerbuff (big one for Tiger (H)[rof increase], nearly no buff at all for Tiger II (tad less reload/longer aimtime).

Yep , noob got Tiger or play it again ( one even ask why the gun is't fire faster ) . I see Tiger and Tiger 2 give side to jagdpz IV and complain they got penned. Hihihi , It's not Russian bias ( not that hard ) but German tanks need so much more skill to bounce and be effective :)

Here it is the information....
that does explain why you belive that they have been overall buffed (i do only agree with Tiger (H) being buffed).
Pls do keep in mind that this video shows only a very limited part of tank mocement in World of Tanks:
1. it shows the tank on best surface(there are 3: hard(streets etc./ medium(grass, fields, 90% of what i drive my tank thorugh and soft(swamp, the valey in lakeville for example). On medium or soft ground the results would have been quiete different (e.G. way slower acceleration/turning for 8.8)
2. I usually only drive in such a straight line and that long only once or twice per match (getting to the front, and if survived the fight, rush to base), but when fighting other tanks in my german heavy tanks i usually "sprint"(aka acceleration is all i want there) out of cover, fire and accelerate out of harms way again before enemy can shoot at me.
3. higher aimtime on Tiger II is a serious nerf(longer aim time=have to say longer in harms way in order to aim and hit enemy weakspot)
4, that video description is actually as stated before not 100% correct, i should state:
Test Server 8.8 - German Changes - Buff or Nerf? Flat Ground best possible surface.(did you know that obj. 704 turns faster than jagdtiger, but only on best(hard) surfaces, on all other jt is better.
5.

You take a few parts of World of tanks gameplay (quarter mile race on perfect surface and gun stats) and then state that they have been buffed overall? Please either consider the full picture (try those 8.8s uphill, on medium or soft ground, or try peek-a-boo and you will see mobility has in overall been hugly nerfed!)

I suspect that maybe people are trying to get the Tiger 2 unlocked in anticipation of it being a great tank post the next patch. I can see no other reason to jump in to the tiger BEFORE it gets a massive buff.
