Current MM makes most tier VIIIs hard to play. I recently did the wz 5a grind. The 110 was just horrific.

Tiger 2 is only decent against idiots who don't know they can just lolpen your turret from any angle.

I have 3MoE with it and its my favorite tank. You should know that your armor is a joke so basicaly you need to play it as TD and save your hp to end of battle. On top tier you can feel safe but you know how is the mm now xD

What equipment do you use?

That was one of the worst tanks I've even had to grind through.

Dont rely on armour, mobility is average to bad, good gun and penn.

I keep thinking about buying it back as I sold it ages ago.  The problem is every thread that's on here about it makes it sound horrible.

Getting 3 MOE in that means making about 3 shots per match, I bet :) I would like to see the stats on the survival rate of the Tiger II, it must be appalling.

Tiger II was probably the only one of those "stock" tanks I've really enjoyed...

the Tiger II is not a sustainable tank.

 

as another poster pointed out, its turret armor is too weak, it makes that tank an easy target at close and medium range. realistically, this tank cannot brawl and needs to stay at long range.

 

the gun is also a major weakness. the top gun does only 320 damage but the shells cost over 1000 credits. the 88 has only 22mm less pen but superior DPM, I used the 88 gun on the Tiger II and started to make profits in some battles, achieving an average of 0 playing this tank, which was a huge improvement over using the top gun.

as I don't use a premium account, the credits aspects are important to me.

 

it's not a fun tank to play without a premium account, as I was forced to focus on credit-making, so I used rammer, optics and vents to improve the tiger II's already excellent view range to the max and earn more credits through spotting.

aiming was fast enough to churn out serious damage using the 88mm gun, 2629 DPM and 0.31 dispersion, 5.48s reload time.

 

better switch off chat and messages while playing this tank.
