And yet I have done strangely ok in one so far, with a passable 51% average WR, rather better than my average. Maybe the point of it is to frustrate you?

It's free hp for enemy, nothing more. I first had the same win rate in it as in the Tiger I (Tiger was it called back then). When I bought it back to grind the VK 100.01 P, my win rate dropped down drastically from I think 56% to 49% or something. Only because of goldspam and trash teams. I played the same way I did as before grinding for the VK, but wasn't able to win as much anymore. It has 200mm upperplate armor, but that means nothing with the huge cupola on top of the tank and the lower front plate, being easy to hit as well. only a noob will shoot that 200mm part.

It is ok. Gun has bad DPM and bad handling.
But you have some frontal armour which is good against strong inaccurate tanks like Ruski ones.

To act as a gateway of frustration for those with gluttonous attitude toward OP German Super Heavies.

When you'll get to the wonderful VK 45.02 A, you will miss the Tiger P so much... :facepalm:

Sure it's no T29, but it's not bad, I played 627 battles in mine with a 57% win rate to grind enough XP to unlock the Ferdi, VK 45.02 A and the VK 100.01P. You only played 16 battles in yours so you probably haven't come to grips with it just.

First tank I ever ragesold. Was finishing my VK100P grind last weekend, loss after loss after loss so used free exp for last few remaining k's and sold that tincan. Don't really know what's the purpose of the tank, it has no mobility, no armor to rely on and crap gun. One of best examples how german tanks are modeled in this game, dat stronki russki bias.

Apart from frontal hull armor (which doesn't matter anyway, since they can shoot your turret or just load gold) Tiger I does everything better. I wanted to grind both HT lines from it, but after finally getting the VK100 I'd rather shoot myself in the foot than grind any more exp. This pos is just a giant free exp sink.

The purpose of it is to make you use free xp

It's the best tank in the game to waste free XP on, considering it's also the tank with the most arrows coming off it towards other tanks, apart from tier 1s.

I appreciate that you fell the pain of playing this crap just as I do. I was so hyped to get it. I'm playing since 2011 and I'm pretty sure that it was a decent tank before some updates. I just drowned myself in the last battle due to getting focked by every player (even biggest noobs know that) shooting the hatch. I'm thinking about selling this crap too. Is the staff from WG even play this game. From now on I'm just playing SPG's and freaking op Russian meds and IS's. No balance in WoT whatsoever.

P.S Pls add more premium (op) tanks PLS

Believe it or not, it has been buffed...

If a tank leads to several lines, you can assume it's not particularly good. M4 45, Tiger P, B-C 12t, Type 58, Obj. 416... maybe the two latter aren't horrible, but one is a largely inferior T-34-85 and the other has, arguably, above-average skill/goldspam requirements.

It's not that bad at all, now that the turret mantlet can handle at least some hits. Sure it's a bit slow and reload could be better, but it's still far from useless. It only really struggles moving fast enough on those 15-1 steamroll matches.

 

I've had two runs with it. First one when mantlet was crap, second after they added vk100p and mantlet was as it is now. At least for me the difference felt significant. Might even get it for third time to take on VK45-line.

If there is any tank not following even the old meta. It's this one. Been outdated for years. Reload vs Alpha is just way to bad. Don't need to be on Tiger I levels. But a buff on reload time and aim time would help. Tiger I has almost a 2 sec faster reload with 100% base and no equipment. Give the P the same aim time and about 1 to 1.40 sec faster reload at least. It would still not be fantastic. But "fine"

I missed the 45.02 A when I did grind the Tiger P again for the new German tank line recently.

Cobra did a video of this in a thread a few weeks back. I watched and learned.

I learned that a GOOD player can do really well and an average bob like me can do less worse. Thank fook ive finished it.

In the old MM, it was a good tank. Now, it's an XP sink. A shadow of it's former self.
