Im working my way down the German heavies but am not entirely sure which line to go down. Ive always wanted the VK 45B at tier 9 and especially the PZ 7 at tier 10. However ive heard the VK 45 at tier 8 is rather unforgiving? Ive already researched the Tiger 2 but have yet to purchase since im curious about the other line. 


Any advice is much appreciated on your opinion of both lines/experiences down them.

I found the VKA alright, though I played it some time ago. Just remember it is more of a "medium-heavy" than a true heavy. VKB has been badly powercrept and the PzVII I've not played  yet.


Tiger II is generally considered badly powercrept, though I enjoyed it (again, been a while since I played it). 


Maus is good fun, if you can handle slow, and I've heard the tier 8 & 9 are fun. Not played them myself as the tech tree was a little different when I did the line.

I have too many tier X and the only one I actually like to play is the Maus.

Depends on what you want. VKA is more of a medium than a brawling HT. And can be unforgiving if you make a mistake. VK B is the mirror opposite and is great if you like to play defensively. As it's not that strong as an aggressive HT in the current meta. Tiger II in the current meta is more a support HT in most cases, more so then an aggressive brawler. E75 after is a great all-rounder still IMO. 


But as for the tier X's and the end results. The E100 is better in the open and when holding a corner. As the Pz VII has some massive weak spots on the side when side scraping, as he has some armor sticking out on the side due to the turret being wider then the hull. But hull down the Pz VII's turret is more tricky for most guns. So it depends on your style. If you like to be aggressive or hold in your HT's.

I am still deciding which German HT way to go? The goal is to get one decent tier 10 tank.


1. VK 45.02A  --> VK 45.02B ---> PzKpfw VII

2. VK 100.01 ---> Mauschen ---> Maus

3. Tger II        ---> E75           ---> E100


Which would you choose, i dont have time or resources to get all three.....

For MT I decided to go E50--->M50 though Panzher is really awfull, I must hit 10 times with premmm ammo just to get so me 1000 DMG or sth,....

For LT I still havent decided to go on from SP1C, the rear turret tank just sucks,...is it worth getting tier 10 LT  Rhm Pzw?



best regards zmago
