The Tiger I tank is one of my most favorite tanks that I have, but its armor is completely garbage. You can't side scrape you can't use your armor for protection its just garbage. Although it has a very good gun its armor is very very bad. Even tier 5 tanks are able to go easily through it even without premium rounds. It is not historically correct. So I would suggest making the armor of the tiger I better. I am sure many players agree with this.

No, but tech tree Tiger I should be a tier 6 tank just like Tiger 131 and Japanese Tiger. Those tanks have the same armor so it at least works sometimes.

But being penetrated by tier 4s is retarded

If you think the Tiger I needs more armour, wait until you play the Tiger II.

I mean tier 4s will never get in a match up against the tiger I but they really should improve the armor and maybe make it fair like make the gun worst or lower the hp

Just because you suck at playing the Tiger doesn't mean the tanks is bad, it's actually very good with epic DPM and the largest HP pool. The tank is fine as it is.

Those tier 6 Tigers are not that special either.

Just give it limited matchmaking, so it won't see tier 9. Problem solved.

It's not the weakest HT at tier 7 though.

The Tiger 1 is a decent enough medium tank.

If you have found new blueprints where it has better armor that it was in real life then yes, if you mean buffing armor when devs are on lsd, then no thanks.

It's a great tank, not a traditional HT but that's why it's gun is epic.

 

Currently 2 Marked mine and will seek to 3 Mark at some point.

Tiger 1 is a really good tank. Best or second best HT on tier 7. You have DPM and huge HP pool to trade (if needed). Just because is listed as HT, this doesn't mean it's a brawler based on armour.

Why? Giving just the right amount of armor to offset a HP nerf would be impossible.

 

The Tiger is fine as it is. Learn to play it properly. It doesn´t need more armor.

Best Tier 7 heavy is still T29 imho, but I otherwise agree.

The Tiger is not an in yo face tank like the IS. It can trade a bit but the engine gets destroyed all the time, and the sides are made of ammorack. Instead, play mid range support and puncture the red tanks to death with that epic DPM.

And if blokes yell at you FU UR HEAVY TANK GO FRONTLINE just mute them, they don't know what they're talking about.
