I am at the point on the German tree where I can research the Tiger or Panther.

Your opinions and thoughts on each possible direction?

Well as always, it depends on your play style. Regardless of that, if I could turn back time, I would have gone for the Panther first, because it's an awesome tank (Weird looking though) equipped with the pinocchio gun. Even if you bounce, after 4 seconds you get another chance to shoot the enemy again (ROF is awesome but u dont have much alpha damage, the only downside).
But in the end I liked both tanks and still enjoy playing with them.

Purely from a personal point of view, your mileage may vary:

Panther.  Simply because it leads to the E-50 and the E-50 is made of 100% pure WIN and covered in yummy Awesome Sauce.  The Tiger sucks harder than a cheap crack whore on the promise of $5, but it does lead to the very yummy Tiger II and E-75.  Sadly for me, being Public Enemy Number One to every Artillery piece on the battlefield is not my idea of fun (it's even worse in the Jagdtiger...  ugh!) and I just have more fun in fast mediums.  The Panther itself is nothing special and requires a style of play that you'll either love or hate, and the Panther II's not bad, but the E-50...   ooooh!

I got both and I don't regret it :-). So it's "Other" for me.

Tiger: Because it's Legend and it's a nice tank (not easy!) to play.
Panther: Same reason + 75/L100 makes it a great tank in it's tier.

Honestly it depends on you playstyle: Do you prefer heavies oder meds? Do you wan't to go into CW sometimes => Tiger (because E-100 is needed in every lineup these days but E-50 is put behind T-54 and Patton).

Perhaps you have the opportunity to play the tanks of these both lines (E-50, E-75, E-100) on a friends account to see what fits your style.

Regards,
Blackadder

OTHER: I like them both.

1. Both are horrible unless fully researched, and quite fun when they are.

2. Panther is a medium. Requires intellectual power. Tiger is a heavy. Not much brain needed. Decide for yourself.

If you can master the Tiger it is an awesome piece of kit.

It will be buffed soon with stronger armour, skirts, improved 88 damage (although rof decreased).
Hitboxes will be changed so less damage from sides and less chance of fire (mine doesn't burn very often anyway)
It looks sexy. It leads to the Tiger 2 which is epic.

Panther is very good too but i would go Tiger. It's for real men  B)

That's why there are so much "Love Tiger (H)"-threads out there [/ironie]

PS: Tiger H is all but no "no-brainer".

Edit: Correction of lacking vocabulary ;-).

Other, as in both. Not for the Tiger which I didn't like and got rid of, or the Panther, which I still have, but not if I need the money, space or the mood.

The PantherII doens't disappoint in any way. The E-50 is awesome, I just can't win the the fecker.

Love the KT to death, and am saving up for the E-75, and reading the reviews, should be as good.

So both as stepping stones to better things.

Tiger H might be the most-brainer-heavy (that's why we have so many appreciation threads actually), but still we are comparing it to the Panther, winner of the damaged modules award  B)

Actually it is other way around. If you make tactical mistake with heavy and have to switch position fix that mistake, you most likely cannot fix it. With medium you have speed to fix your errors.

True @domokun. In some way. But heavies are much more forgiving than meds. If you make a mistake in a medium, you're dead or at least badly crippled. In addition, you lack the firepower. So your mistakes in a heavy mainly affect your team, not that much yourself.

I got both, because with panther You get the E-50 that is usefull to clan wars, and the tiger line, because it is very funny play with the Tiger II and the E-75 that it´s my favourite tank in the game, and of course to  play clan wars with the E100. Go firts to the tiger.

This poll is kind of like asking me which of my children I prefer.  Depends upon how they are behaving that day, eh?  heheh..


I love both the Tiger H and Panther.  Both are fun to play (though the Tiger is probably weaker in its class than the Panther is in its own class).  Both paths lead to some extremely nice tanks (Panther to Panther II and E50 and Tiger to KT and E75).  These are some of my favorite vehicles in the game, so frankly, I'd say you can't go wrong either way and you should go both ways.  :)

I voted Tiger H, though...because I think driving a Tier 9 heavy is more fun than driving a Tier 9 medium these days.

Hmmm ,Tiger or Panther? apples or pears? :D it depends on what you like more :) ...personaly i vote for apples :P:D

But seriously it depends on which type of tanks are you enjoying most, mediums or heavys?Though i have to say that driving a panther is often like a driving a heavy :/

and if comes to these two tanks ,both of them have the same flaws ,they are slow ,they have paper armor and their guns are pretty weak ,and overaly they are greatly underpowered compared to their real historical counterparts as well as they are little weaker than Tier 7 tanks of other nations in game.

On the bright side ,both of them are prety good snipers thanks to accuracy of their guns ,although when you will snipe with them you will feel like a sniper with BB gun instead of sniper rifle :D

Main difference betwen them is that Tiger has more powerful gun and Panther has better top speed.

both animals are nice to have, but panther is more fun in my opinion..even more as arty selection is primary focused on HT, so you have a little advantage here..and when you will research long 75, then you have option to snipe and penetrate from far, so binocular is must here...
But the choice is yours (even poll is divided), so decide and let us know your filling after 100 battles with him (when L75 researched).

I researched both, but only bought a Tiger, and I've never regretted it. A lot of people hate the Tiger but I loved it. Even if you do hate it though, you'll love the King Tiger and E-75. It's not a bad path to take.

I voted Panther. Tiger I is fun at times, but Panther just feels better. Why is even the top speed of Tiger I nerfed to 30km/h...

However, there is nothing more satisfying than the occasional game where your Tiger I gets to plow into t3-t5 tanks... too bad that happens so seldom.

Then again, german "medium" tanks are a bit weird, since they turn like heavies and E-50 also weighs like one.
