I've been testing out higher tier german tanks on the CT server to decide wether there is a line there worth playing, but it seems all of them except the Vk100 and maybe the Maus havent been updated in years and are thus nowhere near good enough to be competetive, especially not for a scrub like me. This is depressing as a lot of them are very pretty and proper tanky looking.

 

But maybe there is something I've missed? Some german tank that still shines among all the new and very strong soviet stuff?

 

 

edit: some people missed that this thread  is only about german t8, t9 and t10 tanks.

i recently bought back WT auf PZ IV. Fantastic tank. Always was, always will be.

E50, also fantastic tank.

 

E50m is good tank, people complain too much, IMO.

 

Tanks i didnt play, but i recon they are good for randoms:
PZ VII, VK7201.

 

Also, saw a lot of positive PTA comments on this forum, but i didnt like it on testserver. Gun handling is iffy.

 

 

oh., and M4190 & Skorpion, if we are counting premium ones. Those two are among the bes in their class.

German? btw Amx 50 120 was never any good at all.

 

@OP Borsig with the derp gun is pure fun (mostly)

Borsig and VKB are still as reliable as ever.

AMX is fine, except for the reload. I like the speed, pen and the alpha.

VK is not reliable to me. I liked it when I just got it, but soon after I won barely anything. The good games I lost mostly, because the teams just gave away their hp for free, or I got goldspammed away, because the turret front is too weak..

Guys Jerry = German.

E75 is nice, the t10 arty is solid, I liked Ru251 and E50.

High tier german tanks?

 

E75, E100, VK-B, Maus
all quite good if you ask me, but then I don't do CW or such stuff.

E50 is definitely a nice tank. I always have a good time in it.

Contrary to most of folks I hated Wt pz Auf IV and I love Grille 15. Havent played that many german tanks but Im grinding all the lines at the same time and they have been good up to tier 6 and 7. They haven't disappointed me and from what Ive seen maybe the Tier 10 ones cant be competitive but that doesnt mean they cant be fun in pubs

E75 is still a solid tank, its down right brutal when top tier.

Then theres the Maus, E50 and E50M.

 

Leopard 1 is so good, it will break the game, even with a tiny buff. (This last part, might be a joke:mellow:)....

As many have already said e50 is excellent, fine with t10s so long as you don't mind hitting the 2 key and when top tier against 7s you almost feel like your a dirty cheater for stomping them without breaking a sweat.

 

e75 is still competitive its just so slow in the current meta of fast heavys with paper hulls and strong turrets like the obj 277, wz 111-5a  ect. I know it's suppose to be a super heavy but super heavy means diddley squat when every one is bashing the two key.

 

e50m is good just not as op as e50, better speed, traverse, amazing pen and some heat shields are the only difference. Oh and the engine in the back so no engine fires from people punching through your lfp.

 

Scorpian G- if you know how to play it is it ridiculous... tier t10 gun on a 50kmh platform at tier 8. Sat on 92% MOE with mine. That is my project for the week.

Are the meds competitive anymore? I rarely see them in battle, which is usually a sign they are redundant in current meta.

The Maus is very good especially top tier, vk100p is same top tier.

Ive found though that facing increasing numbers of high pen tds isnt much fun. Getting penned for 1000 dmg in the turret front when you try and aim...

Where gold is mandatory against the jap heavies, people also carry this philosophy against all the super heavies. Being in a t8 or t9 super heavy being spammed with 330 pen russian med ammo for instance... its not fun. The Maus can bounce the barrage of inevitable gold, the rest struggle.

 

Personally, I will be finishing the last grind and then leaving the majority to collect dust, they really arent worth bothering with anymore, getting powercreeped every time a new nation is introduced.
