I was expecting this tank to come, but now it looks like it won't. Only reason why I didn't buy 131 is because I was waiting for 217. So, do you think it will eventually come on EU server?

No idea, is a clone but I would probably buy it as tier 6 mm is not messed up and I like the 131

So, is the 131 performing to your expectations?

Be kind of nice to have the 217 replace the 131 camo in regular climes and for winter the famous White Tiger by Ilya Boyashov.

 

So 3 looks in one, and I would introduce these as a memorial tribute to Germans and Russians who fell. The 131 to the British who fell as it captured by.

 

The USA can be twined with Japan and France on another special tribute tank?

 

The 11, 11, 11

I did not expected much so yeah.

 

Is not too bad, but turret traverse is sad and is sluggish.

 

For the rest is what I expected.

 

BUt when you know wot and german tanks, if you expect rubbish it is difficult to be disappointed. :coin:

 

Is not terrible.:child:

I´m actually very happy with the Tiger 131. It´s a good crew trainer. Sees more tier 7-8 battles than tier 6, but again that´s just more xp.... have played 68 battles so far, and with 64,17%wr, 925 average xp and 1129 average dmg. I´m very happy. I seems to adapt a different play style driving this tingy...more careful and aware of my surroundings since EVERYTHING can pen it.

I despise 131 - if it wasn't for the BIA crew I would be very upset that I bought it.

Regular Tiger I has enough HP and DPM to do something, 131 is robbed of that. Dropping to tier 6 doesn't make up for this.

I though Panther 88 was a bad German premium - Tiger 131 is even worse. In fact I think it is THE worse German premium, T25 included ;).

 

If you consider buying it - buy it only if you benefit from BIA crew.

 

As for 217 - it will appear on Gamescom (unless German authority so nazi-fobic ;) will object, in which case we probably will see a bit it later).

It is basically 131 reskinned so if you think about buying it - do it for BIA crew. Otherwise it is really not worth it.

217 has different visuals. Just as 131 has from HT No. 6
