Got the 131 last week.

 

In 18 battles with this tank had (and can provide ALL the 18 battle recordings).

 

1 Tier 6 battle of which were half tier 5s. (Loss).
Was actually my third battle with this (first was T8), and 2 Churchill III from our own team found it funny and the whole battle were shooting me on the back, with half their shots bouncing, while a Cromwel was blocking me all time. Because well, people, summer heat you know.

 

1 Tier 6 battle of which all were tier 6s. (Win). The second battle played with the tank. Which was a good one, having somehow 2 KV2s missing the 131 all together from 150m. That helped me turn the game from 6-11 to victory, with quite a few kills.

 

2 Tier 7 battles of which I was at the lower third of the MM.

 

14 Tier 8 battles.

 

Not much else to say other than WG has done a terrible job, to be polite.

With that MM they gave to the poor thing, it should be elevate it to Tier 7, give it the 88L71 and the mobility of the Tiger H and leave it. It will be far superior premium tank than it is now as Tier 6.

 

Make your own mind if it worth to buy. FYI the Japanese Tiger my mate has, hasn't seen any T8 in more than 230 battles.

You bought a tier 6 support HT. If you wanted a Tier 7 with a bigger gun, you should have bought a tier 7. Like the Tiger No VI, it's not even great as top tier at times. Nor is the Tiger, as even tier 5 tanks can pen him. And Tbh.... 18 battles is not exactly a "large" or solid sample size. Play 18 more on the other server at different times, and it could be reversed for all we know.

Well lucky him. Because I would estimate mine has about 60% tier 8 games. And I bought it on day one when the pen was 132mm, and the gold pen was even less. So it was even more useless back then.

No I bought what I know I am getting. A Tier 6 Tiger.

If I wanted T7 prem, I have the 4503 and is good enough :)

 

What I am saying is the amount of T8s it seeing, maybe they should upgrade it, make it T7 and let it see T9 battles. I bet it will perform much better as "Tiger H" in T9 battles, than Tiger 131 in Tier 8 battles.

I am not saying not to see T8 battles, but out of 18 battles, 14 are T8. That is the issue.

Tiger 131 belongs on tier 5 with the old 132mm pen AP gun. It is just point and pen for all tiers facing the tiger.

On that I agree. It feels like KV1 if you ever face a Tier 5 tank. But that's possibly 1 battle have done so.

I highly doubt it would fare better than the Tiger I (H).

Unfortunately the templated matchmaker is working as intended - people get less games as top tier = earn less credits/xp = more likely to buy prem account.

I think the fact you take such statements at face value completely ruins your credibility here. I wish the negreps were still here.

I got the 131 last week too and I have no complaints.  MM seems fair enough, the tank is pleasant to play and it makes an excellent retrainer because running a 90% crew at Tier 6 is much more forgiving than at Tier 8.

That is pretty much a given. The lower tier you are, the more forgiving the game is of not having a multi skill 100% crew, a luxury not all of us can afford after all.

Hmm, I'm confused now, Tier 8 doesn't see Tier 6 because Tier 8 is always bottom tier, Tier 6 always sees Tier 8 because Tier 6 is always bottom tier. MM is really borked then.

No, what you have there is a clasic logical fallacy. Namely those two statements are mutually exclusive.

I have the Japanese version. Seems fine to me. Meets maybe 3 tier 8's which is fortunately balanced by the three on my team. Pen is crap but with a lot of players now using squishies it doesn't matter so much. Ten premium rounds is all I carry and so far that's always been more than enough. Whilst it's not amazing, it isn't bad.

Yep, seeing the same,  i only play it once when i pay it and im having a great time in it.  The first 3 games where T8's and the last 3 times where top tier which is a guaranteed win if you play it to its strengths.  Support from range if bottom tier, brawl when top tier once you find some cover and can angle as much as possible whilst thinking of protecting that cupola.  Im really enjoying as much as i do the Japanese tiger.

I don't understand the problem. Even if that is true, you will only see 3 enemy tier 8 tanks, while most of the enemies were same tier as you.

 

Do you prefer the old MM where you could be the only tier 6 in a full IS3 battle?

My 131 matchmaking is right in line with HT nb. 6. It's a mix of T8, T7 and T6 games. The ratio of T8 games is generally in line with my other T6 tanks. Nothing special and hardly suprising.

This is 100% BS and makes your whole post look silly, you know. If there was any last comment to be made, this one must be the worse :teethhappy:

Seeing many many more of the TOGs out on the battlefield, which is great, unless im in my KV2 and the enemy has a tog...... which makes me sad.
