Otherwise, nice vid. :)

Interesting video, not enough actual "inside the tank" footage but pretty good.  The bonus code at the end is a very good touch though.  Got myself a cheap Mutz.  Nice.

It would have been more fitting for the bonus code to also include some ingame missions for the Tiger II not just discounts for german premiums. But hey, it would have been way too nice now, would it not? :)

Ah, nice!

360 degree view is exactly what's missing from the regular inside the tank or the Chieftain or museum equivalent videos. Now I could fully appreciate for myself how cramped the inside of tanks are. This is a great beast of a tank and in it's time it was high tech stuff, although, as tanks in general and particularly ww2 era tanks, you can appreciate how slow and cumbersome they are, furthermore how difficult it must be to be able to see out without opening the hatch and sticking your head out. So with all these handicaps in mind the performance of the tank is even more impressive.

Oh and thanks for the discounts aswell, although I'm not looking for anything special.

Is this video blurry by intention?

 

And what kind of resolution is 1080s?

I know, it's that VR spherical mode, but it's blurry...

The Mutz seems to be a nice deal, for only €2,50 more you get 7 days premium and 10x 100% EXP consumeables...

 

The JT 8.8 i'm not so sure though...

 

https://worldoftanks...tiger-mar-2017/

€10,= less, but instead of 4100g you get 7d prem and 10x 100% EXP consumeables.

Nice vid.

 

Garbage tank ingame.

 

Also, penetrates 250mm @ 1km range, nice one :teethhappy:. Does that mean the 8.8cm KWK L/71 in WoT has worse penetration than it should have? For balancing reasons I assume, because Tiger II is such a stronk tenk (lel). Or did it pen that much when ze germans lucked out and high rolled with gold ammo back in the day?

Is this a hint that the tier 7 Tiger II (H) is close to release? :izmena:

I actually had the pleasure of seeing the King Tiger in real life at the Tank Museum. 

The one thing I will say is that by watching the video, you really don't get an accurate sense of just how massive this machine really is, plus World of Tanks doesn't do the tank justice. Since the King Tiger would have been fighting M4s and Churchills, you don't get a pure fear this machine had in battle. 

 

Very informative though could have done without a money grab at the end.

What do you want them do? Put the tank 2-3 tiers lower with the same stats? That would ruin the lower tier quiet a bit. :P

That legendary feeling when a legendary su 100 legendarily  overmatches your legendary turret roof and makes you feel like a legendary moron is  legendary.

"Comrade Sergei hwai not make roof armor 41mm?"

" But Comrade Dimitri it will be historically inaccurate and after all comrade its legendary!!!!!"
