The first Japanese heavy tank rolls out into battle. Are you ready to face this steel warrior?

I definitely am. Free xp and credits when going against one. Like a TOG, but with a terrible gun

WG you forgot to mention the most important features of this tank: it's a paper box with no armor, garbage gun and full mm. Even other T6 vehicles are laughing at it, T8 almost feel sorry for it.

Milk the cow?

Don't have pen,and very last supertest nerfed the RoF by a single (goddamn single!) shot.

so yeah,i don't need this. For that matter SU-100Y and Dicker Max do their job for me.

Now... i feel like the article was [edited] us a lil bit here.

The gun has some strange derp going on with it, often, my bullet just arcs over what i'm firing at, when it doesn't miss completely, which makes it's so called "legendary accuracy" not a valid point here... i'm often finding myself getting out slugged by T-34-85, as they can reliably pen, and hit me while i mostly just miss them or hit its armored turret due to the weird accuracy. also, the pen won't really work in Tier VII, 132 is just not enough. Great tank ruined by an under-powered gun. we are seriously just talking about 10 mm more pen, and the gun would be good. Otherwise, it's a really fun tank!

*start reading*

 

Distintive features

 Firepower

An accurate gun

 

*stop reading* :facepalm:

 

0.38 and bad shell velocity is clearly NOT Accurate. It's below average.

 

The rest of the description is meh...

 

Nice presentation btw.

"The Japanese Tiger is one of the most solid Tier VI heavy tanks. The large amount of hit-points the tank possesses makes it a formidable opponent for all vehicles of the same Tier, and a true steel wall that can pierce defences and remain operational."

 

Erm, can I get my swapped for one like the above please? I appear to have ended up with a mild steel training version.

This Jap Tiger is getting a lot of promotion isn't it, I wonder if it's selling a lot less on EU than WG expected and that's the reason? If so, perhaps it's because of these barriers WG have recently erected:

  • WG torpedoed collecting as a general concept that had proper integrity, when they ploughed exclusivity / exclusion into the game via PM's, exclusive female crews, & lower than tier 10 reward tanks with fancy collectible skins, denied to collectors but pushed in their faces in Randoms & on forum.
  • WG have alienated a lot of spenders (other than collectors, like the play part time for leisure lot) with PM's, female crews, & IS5 etc.
  • WG have terminally undermined the crew training economy and value of prem tanks as crew trainers, when they introduced power creep into crews via enhanced faster training crews from PM's & Berlin tanks that make training up ordinary crews (and the prems that do it) seem a waste of time. I bet WG would sell loads if this tank came with one of those enhanced faster training crews.
  • The tank itself is not OP, and if you take some collectors & play part-time for leisure out the equation because they feel excluded at the moment & aren't happy, if it's not OP and won't buff your stats, why would anyone bother to buy it? Messing around with prem tanks lower than tier 8 credit farmers is bad for your stats, lessens rather than helps your chances of getting into clans that win reward tanks. So it's potentially now seen as even counter productive.
  • It's green, and it's insignia has been badly placed, so it looks like eyes and makes the whole tank look like a little elephant. Perhaps that's why it's not grey, cuz elephants.
  • It begs a question for all those pro-German tank players who are paranoid WG are biased against them, who want a prem Tiger, but why is it Jap and no German one? They won't cooperate with what they perceive are more WG anti-German antics, where's the prem Afrika Korp Bovington Tiger?
  • A lot of people aren't very happy how EU seems to be always getting a worse deal than other servers, particularly at moment with FV whatever mission. In spite of what WG Dev's seem to think, nothing exists in isolation, I think WG have tied themselves in knots with conflicting strategies cuz they don't think things through (laterally) and don't reckon on side effect consequences.
  • WG must have taken a lot of money from the BT-SV & Pz2J bundles, and from CDC, T54 prot, & Berlin tanks etc, all this year. They don't seem to understand their market is not a bottomless pit, players have a finite amount they'll spend, WG had them spend that earlier in the year. If WG want more to spend more, they need to be more inclusive to more.

 

Or it might be selling really well.

Armor crap!! Gun crap!! Speed crap!! turret speed Very Crap!! Radio is a JOKE... The shells like said before don't go straight and miss

It doesn't see tier9 battles since it's a t6 tank though.
Also, maybe next time do some research before throwing your money away. But well, that's too mainstream and requires too much brain usage right?

Mainstream is in fact - all the customer should have to do is read the formal feature & benefit description of the product that WG have put on the advert, it tells him all he should 'need' to know, eg that it's accurate (a relative & measurable claim). He should not be in a situation where he has to research those claims & compare, to discover the benefits claimed by the seller are in fact false - as per the post below.

Not performing for the moment.

Weakiest WN8 efficiency of Tier 6 heavies, only 145 out of an average of 770 (source: www.vbaddict.net).
