I feel more confident in medium tanks, so Cent I guess.

Played both, I like Tiger II more, but Cent has better mobility and is good for ridge-fighting.

Hard choice, went with tiger II because it's probably easier to adapt to a potato-team :hiding:

All stats say the Cent 1 wins more battles, has a better WN8 average and only does slightly less damage per battle. I voted for the Cent because I've never played the Tiger II. Quite like the Cent but not sure it is a "battle winner" in the way other tanks are though. Not that any tank I drive is a "battle winner" but you get my point.

Being both bad tanks, it really depends on the player. Personally, I have 47% WR on the Tiger2 and 42% on Cent1. The combination of huge size and low alpha, low DPM gun really kill the Centurion IMO...

Nah that can't be true, according to the OP the Cent 1 is OP cos it got a turret armour buff :D

I'm at 51% in my Cent 1 but not through any skill on my part!! It's very much a one-trick pony and needs to be on a ridge line above your opponents to make the turret work. If you go hull down on a level, you get penned a lot of the time unless you wiggle the turret like mad. Funny, but I do like it, especially in Frontline where people don't take as much time to aim so it can bounce a lot more. It's great for capping or for sniping from the side areas. The bigger map helps it find a good spot. The 5/1 is a better tank and has a bit more about it even though the stats aren't that much better. Gun-handling just seems "more" somehow.

When I've played the same 1000 games in the 5/1 as i have in the 1, i'll be able to compare properly  At the moment w/r in the 5/1 is 3% higher than the cent 1 at 57% and 54% respectively.  So would definetly pick the Cent 1 over the Tiger II (58% w/r from 370 games FYI) since i was playing the Cent 1 as one of the first lines I ever played in the game, certainly within the first 5,000 games as the old FV4202 (t10) was my first tier 10 tank.

I had the feeling OP expected a more one sided poll, as if he was asking "What is better to win Defender or Tiger2?".

I tried both Cent1 and 5/1 in FL, but found the low alpha coupled with avarage mobility as an MT quite limiting. I found faster vehicles like the Blackdog and T-44 or more armoured ones like VK100 and KV-4 more useful, to be fair. But it can be that Cent simply doesn't fit my play style.

Looking at my stats, Centurion Mk.1 <48% in 186 battles, Tiger 2 >54% WR in 214 battles. And Tiger 2 I played probably a year and >10k battles earlier

OP will still see it that way as all tiger 2 votes are all tajj7 frends that make up fantasy bias stats to defend wg :trollface::trollface::trollface::trollface:

Black dog is awesome in FL and the T-44 is a good tank all round I think. Certainly more versatile than either of the Centurions. I guess I am making the best of what I have as I haven't gone down any light lines yet nor have I got far on Russian mediums. I have the two Italian Autoloaders and a Skorp but I like my British trio of the Cent 1, the Cent 5/1 and the FV4202. Not brilliant in any of them but I just prefer playing in them. Daft I know, especially with the other three available, but we can't all be the same or it would be a boring game playing against the same tanks all the time. Worth it too for those moments when a Prog thinks he's got you, unloads three, gets a critical, a pen and a bounce, then has to sit there because you've tracked him and have 20 seconds to blow a few holes in him... :teethhappy:

Tiger 2 needs buffs ladz.

 

Armour, gun, hp, life, computer, eating, speed, traverse, Armour.

 

Although it seriously needs buffs, wargaming won't be nerfing most tanks anytime soon (or at all) to balance the game out more.

 

(or just move the sodding thing down to tier 7).

I think this is undeniable! Any single player in this comunity knows it. :)

 

What kind of buff would be probably a good discussion.

And even his poll is not supporting that, I am sure he will come up with some other excuse as to why he is not wrong.

 

But to be honest both tanks aren't good and there are loads of tanks on tier 8 I would rather play. 

 

And everyone knows the Tiger 2 needs a buff, but its not as bad as people make out, I mean look at the Panther 88 or Panther 2 for example -

They make the Tiger 2 look like a Defender in comparison.

Strange poll tbh. Still I voted for the Kingtiger. The Cent is an okay tank, but the KT hits as good as the Cent, deals more damage per hit and there are more maps where HTs are favoured than the other way round.

 

But that's all theory. None of the both have significant carry potential. I'd win (or lose) either way, no matter which choice I'm making.

Cent I is a one trick pony, whereas Tiger II is a zero trick pony? :)

Both tanks are kinda outdated, still i would say Tiger II is more reliable.

 

In regards to its global stats (Winrate, dmg per game, etc.) Tiger II likely suffers from the same problem as quite some german tanks, especially the E100-line, they are very badly played, as many new players will go this line first, because Tiger I is likely the most well known tank of WWII.

 

But why play Tiger II when you can just play the tier 8 VK from Maus-line?
