I'd be considerably more impressed with the premium Tigers if the historically accurate 8.8 wasn't represented by a potato launcher in this game.

Sorry, not for me.

I'll go to spot all the Tigers. ;)

 

p. s. Even 30k done DMG mission can't force me to stop to play with LTs.... I'm doing it with AMX 13 105 mostly...

So long as you don't already have the same crew and changed it to another tank crew then I assume so. If you have a crew that is Tiger 131 trained then no, you won't get the crew. But you should not have a Tiger 131 crew because that would be rather stupid and pointless - it being a premium. So that being said you should get the crew and gold compensation.

The gun isn't good. You have to press 2 way to much to be competitive and the gunhandling only starts to work with the usual crewskills, BiA and food. I have to say that I like the idea of having a Tiger at tier 6. It's also makes more sense in a historical perspective. The Tiger II should be at tier 7 for that reason. It's kinda funny, the T29 was developed to counter the Tiger II. But the T29 is at tier 7 and the Tiger II at tier 8...

 

The Tiger on tier 6 needs some better gunhandling, accuracy and pen to be more competitive. It has a tier 5 gun now. It should have the same penetration numbers as the M6 or Firefly. As a heavy, you almost HAVE to encounter other heavies frontally (it's to slow to flank, even if maps allow it) and if you are facing tier 8's, you don't stand a chance. Not even against some tier 8 mediums like the T54 prot or the RAAC.

 

On the other side, the turret became very trollish after it's buff. You can bounce a lot of tier 5, 6 and 7 shells with that 160 mm gunshield. The 131 has a smaller cupola than the Jap, so it's a viable ridgeline tank with 8 degrees of gundepression. I've had great games on maps like Sand River with it!

 

I 3-marked the Tiger 131 and the Japanese Tiger with pleasure. In the current MM tier 8 battles are less common and against tier 7 you will be doing fine with the occasional gold round. It could and should have a more competitive gun, but it's overall fun to play. And it looks amazing.

No, it doesn't matter if you already have a 131 crew already in the tank or barracks, you'll just get another 131 crew in the barracks if you buy it again.

I don't think so, you can't have the same crew twice over as far as I know.

It would be nice if the announcement information included the dates and times of the event....that is sort of important info to include in an announcement.

Yeah, I would really like to have that one too! For the time being, I've put the numbers '217' on the turret of the Japanese Tiger. :)

Yes you can....myself and others have bought multiple tanks in the past (I think I've bought a total of 4 Cromwell B's for their BIA crews).  However, WG doesn't always give the option, so the question is still worth asking.

If I buy 131, do I have to buy camoflauges for it or does it have some special skin for all maps??
