Tiger 1 was a great tank.

Yeah it had technical issues ,,, over engineered etc.

Still kicked arse but it would be lucky to kick the arse of a 90 year old asthmatic in a wheel chair right now.

I go into games in it not wondering how many enemys ill kill but how many tiers lower will take me out and how fast.

 

Needs some love to make it competitive.

Get better first to be competitive, instead of blaming other stuff.

The tank is not bad at all in it's current state.

Tiger 1 is great...

 

It's gun is stunning and gets the job done vs higher tiers with gold assistance. 

 

Arguably one of the best T7 HTs, T29 is far stronger hull down but it's gun isn't crazy accurate.

 

I plan to 3 Mark it one day.

Personally I dont like it but its a perfectly fine tank as it is. Looking at your stats I would say its a "you problem" and nothing else.

No, if wg were to buff the tiger 1 it would be op,just use it's strengths and you'll be succsseful.

What strenghts you ask? Well you have a very big hp,think of it as a  juicy pinata for your enemies since you have no armor.Next you have a very good needle gun with low alpha just what you want in the current meta,you can feel the power of the mighty tiger while you  peek a corner to do a whapping 240 dmg to your tier 7 russian heavy counterpart while he does just 390 to you.

The tiger 1 in my opinion is the most competitive tier 7, dpm, penetration and accuracy with HP to weather a storm? Yes please! 3 marked it in 62 games with a 2k average damage, that's how good it is.

Tiger I is my favourite tank of all time, I'm trying to get my third mark on it. When I first bought it I expected that I can go in the middle of the battlefield and destroy everything I see, I ended up in flames with my turret blown off. When you learn how to use its adventages Tiger is good tank, but one thing is for sure, Tiger needs better armor and less ammo rack problems.

It kicked arse, as it mostly faced "lower tier" tanks. And not IS-2 and T29 constantly. As it did not fair to well when the IS-2 first did appear. And as in real life, in this game it's a terrible multitasker. If swarmed by enough lower tiers that close the distance. They will kick its butt. As it's armor was not impenetrable by even those. 

 

It's a support HT. Not a brawler. Thus why it got a massive DPM buff the last time they gave it some love. And tbh, in that role it's fine. Tho I've not played mine much since I bought it back after selling it years ago. It's not a bad tank, even when not top tier in its support role with that dpm.

ammo rack problems is a known weakness for German tanks in general, not just on Tiger I. If you want armor you should take Tiger P. that armor is trash anyway, as only the upper plate is 200mm which barely anyone shoots at.

Strongest tier 7 heavy with the exception of the T29 when hull-down. Hoping to 3-mark mine after unintentionally 2 marking it a while back.

I like mine a lot. 

I use vents, optics and rammer to maximize dpm and VR (don't have BiA yet, but with the radioman VR skill halfway I'm already almost at 445m VR).

I play as support or spotter, using the great accuracy and DPM to permatrack enemys.

Don't rely on armour tho, it's really paperish unless you're hulldown as top tier in 3/5/7.

I've been using mine for the Kursk missions after not having touched it for a couple of years and I'm finding to be excellent.  I have a poor crew with just 30% repairs and it seems to do well.

 

IRL the most over rated weapon system in all history.

The Tiger I was a hard nut to crack for the allies until the Brits introduced the 17pdr AT-gun, the Soviets broadly fielded the 85mm and later the 100mm and 122mm AT guns, and the US troops upgraded to the newer 76mm and 90mm guns.

If you take a look in game, in what tiers you find these guns, you might understand, why the Tiger I is ok as is.

When I look in tech tree, I see Tiger 1 face tanks builded to face him and destroy him. 

No tanks he fought mostly in WWII

No, that it the wrong way. T29 should face KT not Tiger. Ferdi should be tier 7, not tier 8 and so on. Why Germans HT who where build to face KV 1, should fight tanks designed to kill them? It's stupid.
