According to the link, One Jagtiger was experimentally fitted with the engine and a King Tiger/ Tiger II was planned to be tested with it. But the war ended before mass production and field trials could be considered by the German army.

i think its more off-topic somehow.

It isn't off-topic and he makes a valid point.

King Tiger has to fight new generation designs with a gimped setup in wot, and the question is .... why are it's players punished so ?

 

It isn't as much off-topic as it is an incovenient truth.

He made no point whatsoever. He only posted a link to a site about the history of an engine. He then mentioned that the site says only 1 vehicle of each was ever fitted with that engine. 

If he wanted to make a point, then he should have done so. If he was trying to suggest that WG introduce a vehicle with that engine, then the place to do that is in the Suggestions section. So it was off-topic as far as Gameplay is concerned. If he wants to amend his post and contact me, I would be happy to move it to suggestions. Or better still, he should start another post in the Suggestions section.

 

I am not prepared to enter into any further discussions about a decision on moderation, so on that basis I will close this thread.
