Hey! I'd like to ask for a friendly advice on my first referral T8!

 

I consider these two, and I push through trees for their equivalents:

 

Jagdtiger 8.8

 

  • Pro: It seems it might be fun with the fast reload and a relatively mean armor
  • Pro: Currently pushing through Jagdtiger proper T9 and don't have T8 trainer for this line (got KanJPz 105 for the other line, awesome tank)
  • Con: Mixed experience with T9 equivalent, but it's just like 10 battles. Rather despised of Jagdpanther I and II.
  • Con: Don't see it useful as FL, but I may be wrong

 

112

 

  • Pro: I really liked the WZ-111 5A, even with the fresh crew, though I realize the TC format was specific and it may not translate well into Randoms or FL
  • Pro: I'm evil. I like the other Chinese lines :) And I just began with the IS-2, though...
  • Mixed: I think I saw it more often on FL, though never really liked ie. IS-3 play in FL
  • Con: I hate KV-85 and IS. I somewhat liked the IS-3 though expected more fun. I like the T9 Obj. 257, though still feel lacking the skill here.

 

This much in general. I usually play MT and TD, feel lost in LT and like some HT, especially T32, T26E5 and Renegade.

 

I already have T26E5 and T92. The former is awesome, the later collects dust.

 

Open to other suggestions if you feel they would like really match me.

111 is not in the referral program, so i heartily recommend the Jagtiger 88 .... at least it's something instead of nothing.

 

PS: Chinese IS-2 is a pale imitation of the russian IS.

Jdtiger has awesome DPM but the low alpha and the huge size + slow turing and slow mobility make it a no in my opinion.

112 I guess you are talking about is a pretty good tank but not the best. It has the IS-2 gun but with slightly buffed penetration. I do ok in mine, the mobility is good and the armor is actually really good, bounce in hull from tier 9's. The drawback is the gun that is pretty derpy and you need to use HEAT rounds if you get matched in T9 game.

I must say I have somewhat more fun with Chinese IS-2 than the USSR IS. This might though also be because of slightly more experience now than back when I was pushing through IS.

I have the Jagdtiger 8.8 myself but it just isn't a good tank these days. The armor isn't actually good except for the superstructure, the dpm is nice with pretty good accuracy but the penetration is terrible. Don't have the 112 but it seems ok since it actually has some armor. However, I'm not sure about how the gun on the 112 works... I'd expect it to be pretty bad unless you are very close range.

Also, don't give up on the tier 9 Jagdtiger, it's one of the better tier 9s when fully upgraded in my opinion.

Jagdtiger 8.8 has got far too low pen to deal with the tanks it faces.

It is IMO only viable against lower tier tanks and really suffer against equal tier or tier 9.
