Tiger II is a nonsense these days. There is nothing more to say...

 The good news is that pressing '2' twice will smash through just about anything you'll encounter, so just imagine you're on the Eastern Front shooting T-34s, hoping that you can return home to tend to your gigantic gambling debt soon.

 

It does help to play Preußens Gloria and looking at the tank as you drive into certain death move out of the cap cirle. :P

 

Anyway, Tiger II would fit more into T7 these days, especially if you removed the (long) 105. Tiger I moves down to T6. While HT VI and Tiger 231 aren't very good for a T6, it's not that horrible after the pen buffs and added turret armor.

Finding a replacement for T8 was 'traditionally' argued as a problem, though with how the Chinese TDs and Japanese HTs are implemented I don't see how E75 Ausf. 0 would be a problem at all (or going for a Tiger II 105 variant with the E75 turret...something-something.

Tiger 2 is fine for tier8, there are tanks that need buffs and others that need nerfs way more than it does.

Tiger II is good and balanced, and a joy to play. If it had a better top engine would be very good and still balanced.
The problem isn't with the Tiger II but with the broken heavies in the same tier that have twice the armour and (for some unknown reason) twice the speed.

Tiger II is good and balanced tank IMO. It doesn't shine in anything but it gets the job done. Usually people want a tank that is very good in some particular are, King isn't the one, it's more jack of all trades what comes to same tier heavies..

It's not a jack of all trades. It's a jack of no trade.

 

Not enough armor for being a proper heavy tank.

 

Not enough alpha for being a sniper and it's too slow to get into any sniping positions.

 

Not enough DPM to bully low tiers effectively.

 

It just can't do anything well. Sniping isn't really a thing anymore in WoT because of map design.

Terveisiä perseestä, no ei vaiskaa ;):)

Like I said, "in my opinion". You can check my wr in that tank, it isn't so bad what people complain about. You just need a proper amount of lubrication and a gentle touch and voila! It purrs your enemies to dust.

The tiger 2 is obsolete they should restore the lower front plate to pre-nerf values and maybe either increase the fire rate or alpha of it's main gun.

 

oh well.

If someone say Tiger 2 is good, then he never played that tank in 2012-2013. Then that tank was good, now its pointless crap.

I had to spam gold yesterday in my M10 (which is becoming one of my favourite tanks) , 3 AP no Pen,  7 ACPR, all penned. seems about right for a T8 machine.

(sorry my phone doesn't "support" quoting)

Most of my games were played solo, perhaps 60%. Nowadays I platoon very rarely so overall vr is going down. But I usually manage to overperform in tanks that are considered junk. Dunno, perhaps it's a mental case..
Being underdog just suits me. ;)
