After 6 years this game sough introduction of first classic German Tiger premium tank that  was in the battle.

On behalf of all tank collectors which is nearly a sinonyme for tank history lovers,I give my thanks to this move of the developer.

Is Heavy tank no 6 any good? Cos they are the same tank. 

 

It's not OP which is probably a good starting point for a new premium at the moment, best thing about it looks like the BIA crew and the fact it's unbundled with that BIA crew.

 

I'll pick one up myself I reckon.

131 Appreciation thread. Are you serious? This is WG at its laziest. They couldn't even be bothered to design a new premium. They took the Japanese tier 6 HT, copied it, and dumped it in the German tech tree. Historically Tiger 131 should have been a tier 7 tank not a tier 6. 2 free crew skills adds up to Pay2Win in my book. Don't bother grinding a tank through a few thousand battles pay money to WG and get them for free. Another sign that WG is truly losing the plot. Stay tuned for the Black version. 131 Appreciation thread................lol. You brightened up my day mate.

I dare say that it's probably exactly as good as Heavy Tank No. VI.

Heard rumors of a 20% discount on this if you attend tankfest so if you know anyone going you might be able to pick it up cheaper... if it's true of course.

Meh it;s £14, 20% would be like less than £3, probably not worth the hastle as you can't even get a pint for that.  I'll keep an eye out anyway.

I'll be heading to Tankfest this weekend but it'll still be a tough decision as to whether I buy the 131, even with a 20% discount code.

On one hand, the tank is extremely meh, but on the other, you get a 0-skill BIA crew.

Now i hate to get all technical here but technically WG took a tier 7  German and moved it down to a tier 6 in the Jap tech tree and  now are moving to were it should be.  Mike will end up  buying all   the bundles before the day is out ..... :P

Where's Ulf when you need him!! Surely not even he would complain about a German BIA crew?

HT No.VI is a lot of fun, works much better than the tech tree Tiger. Great mobility for a heavy, lot of dpm with good gunhandling and the armor is decent.

 

Tiger 131 is the same thing but in a different nation with an even better looking model and a BIA crew, what's not to love?

A reason why they didn't make it OP could be that the name & crew alone would guarantee good sales.

Plus it's tier 6. Only tier 8 warrants broken and/or OP premium tanks.

Can't really appreciate the Tiger 131 when it first appears on a weekend...during the summer. 33% winrate on the first day...

First matches I got nearly 1200 dmg every single one then it started going downhill. So sure, it is a nice tank. But so horribly dependent on having a team with some cells in their cranium. And can't go anywhere alone due to the turret turn rate..

 

Only reason I really bought this...cause I want to play the Tiger with the historical armament. Finally have a good reason to sell the Tiger I..even though I had camo bought for it.

I like mine... It's gun is awesome coming from T5 HTs and the lol that is the IS2 gun.

 

Mediocre speed, armour that can work vs same or lower tiers but the model is pretty to look at...

 

Might have to get another to BiA p2w my Pz4H :sceptic:
