The tortoise itself is outdated just as badly.

 

Not sure how one of the strongest tier 9 tanks is 'outdated', the Torty is absurdly powerful since it's buff -

Torty and T95 got massively overbuffed and in the current meta are OP. Basically if you don't have tier 10 heat (and even then you need to aim at certain spots) then you are going to struggle to do anything to a Torty, if it works a corner hiding it's cupola (which itself is troll and still needs like 220+ plus pen to get reliable pens) and uses its gun arc, then you are talking about 290 effective armour at worst. 

 

Jagdtiger suffers because unlike the above two it's armour is trash and it's minor extra mobility doesn't compensate, great gun though, but trash platform. 

 

Might as well use the same gun on the Waffle IV and get a turret, some camo and extra mobility.

Jagdtiger always seemed nice to play to me and still does; that gun is insane imo and mobility ain't thát bad. Not sure if I would like it more on the JT or on the WT.

I liked it, and i was able to Ace it after 42 battles!

It has absolutely great DPM, good speed, good accuracy and penetration! But why the hell it lacks the armour?! Even some Tier 7s can penetrate it, sometimes I feel like if I'm playing a tier 7 tank! It rarely block, and frontal armour is more like a joke! Upper plate can be panned by T8s, why it has to be like this? WWII's industrial beast products are more like a movable cheese! Seriously! :D

 

The hull is from Tiger 2 = tier 8 and everybody know it weakness by know. Consider jagdtiger can be threat in hands of skilled players.

Back when they were top tier TD's, the JT, Obj704 and T95 were actually very competitive but over the years they've become much less so. Especially with all the premium spam nowadays and penetration inflation on standard rounds, the armor of the JT is pretty obsolete. 

This means that balance wise, it should either be improved *OR* other attributes should be improved to make up for the lack of effective frontal armor.

 

Jagdtiger used to be my favorite TD but I've sold it a long *LONG* time ago.

Its hp got buffed, some time ago. It isn't as bouncy as it used to be, but still I think a skilled player can be very lethal in this thing.

Yeh it does have 2.1k HP, over 3k base DPM with 560 alpha, with decent gun handling, accuracy and pen.

 

Simply trading correctly should net a decent game. Anything it can't out alpha it can out DPM pretty much. 

 

The premium ammo changes should also help it, as it will end up with like 30% extra health against premium ammo, which it suffers from when hull down. 

 

Probably not the best tier 9 but far from the worst IMO. One of those tanks IMO being in the German TD line that on average is probably played poorly.
