Ok, so not long ago i bought the vk 45.03 and much to my surprise (seen some nasty stuff about it on forums) i liked it, im working my way to my second MoE.

i know that it (apparently) plays like the tiger 1 and i think that i would enjoy that too, but i have also heard that there was a painful grind to get to teir 7.

i can free exp to teir 5 or i could also free exp to kv 3 or get hell cat.

 

thanks in telling me what to do :P

I suggest go for the IS7. I found the Tiger 1 to be a turd, despite the great DPM. I liked the Tiger 2, but it had to be played carefully even then. Now with the current T8 prems and MM, it would be a nightmare. E75 is still good, I think. The russians are a lot more forgiving for new players, but i would avoid the IS4, a bit lacklustre these days compared to IS7.

If you want my personal opinion:

 

try every line and nation.

 

with about 3k battles you are still a greenhorn in this game and havent seen much.

the Tiger I (H) is an awesome tank, but not when stock, so take your time

to research modules in advance and have a capable crew (2nd skill at least) at hand.

 

if you try to go to tier 7 for example with a 75% base skill crew,

you are not going to have any fun at all. unless you know what you do and have support,

but that's mostly not the case as one has to spot his own targets most of the time anyways :/

just do it :)

playing some of those tanks is a challange, but would you really miss out on some of those Iconic tanks just because they aren't as competitive as some of their tier mates?

I mean Tiger? Tiger II? Panther?

I bet those are among the tanks you thought of when you started playing the game.

I hate to say this, but it doesn't play like the Tiger I.

Tiger I is boxy and has no to little armor, you tank on HP, while it has a fantastic 5.8s reload on the top gun.

45.03 has some armor, can sidescrape but it has a 7.x s reload on the gun.

 

Basically with the Tiger I you can dpm your way out of situations, with the 45.03 you won't.

Added to this, it has the HP of a t8 medium, so you can even take a t8 medium head on and win, in it.
