The 8.8 is pretty devastating against anything except the heaviest of tanks. It if you want to destroy medium tanks even quick stick explosive rounds on it and watch them go up in smoke.

It actually doesnt, Fully Upgraded with the 8.8cm L71 it becomes a beast, and the should never be used to attack tanks head on, use its decent speed, on the spot rotation, high pen gun and quick reload to your advantage and flank enemy tanks hit em were it hurts, trust me, during the beta i destroyed 10 tanks, ranging from tier 6-9. The Kingtiger is the bad one, to slow, to big, easily pen and front armour and the 10.5cm L68 Gun isnt very accurate either.

I have to admit I've been really underwhelmed by the Tiger, as well; I will get the Tiger II but I can't see me keeping the Tiger I once I have its big brother. The Panther 1 is OK, am currently about half way to the Panther 2, but the VK3002DB (which is also Tier 7 like the Panther 1) actually strikes me as a better tank overall, it certainly feels really fun to play whereas the P1 seems a bit lumbering and weak (I actually use the L/56 88 on the P1 as the damage from the L/100 75mm gun is just too pathetic). As with the Tiger I, once I have the Panther 2 I may not keep the P1; the P2 gets the long 88 which is an awesome gun, and is also faster with better armour.

XPing my Ferdinand at the moment, and the 105mm gun is just evil - taking 80% off a Panzer IV in one hit isn't going to get old any time soon. God knows what the 128mm gun is going to be like on that thing :D

To each his own i suppose, but for me the Tiger 1 fitted within a better role then the tiger 2, while the Tiger 1's role is better suited to flanking, the Tiger 2 is abit of an odd ball, its not quite a front line tank but its not quite good enough to be a flanker because of its lack of speed and its larger size, the Tiger 2 is probably better at supporting the front line tanks, sitting back and sniping while using its sloped armour to bounce those odd shots, but as a i said to each his own.

Got the 128mm cannon for the Ferdinand...


...holy shit. This thing is a beast; I think it was when I one-shotted a KV for the first time I realised what it was like to be an apex predator

Here's the match I had in Lakeville last night:



Steel Wall, Reaper (x5), Top Gun and the rather shiny Boelter's Medal, plus mucho XP and credits...

Very nice result there Lakeville is great for TD's as people suicide themselves over the valley one by one. I'm still puttering about in my KV-3, VK3601H and Stug III, got the Grille and Leopard for when I want a change of scene. For reasons I can't remember i'm buying a VK3001(H) which just seems to be a bad tank compared to the VK3601H and VK3001(P) but maybe i'll change my mind once I have it.

You guys are making me want to play this!

Played EQ2 for 6 years, before that COD2. Just got out of online gaming, recently a friend asked me to join World of Tanks, I declined. Now I read this thread and I'm swaying to joining in the tankblasty goodness...

World of Tanks is like crack, your first hit is free. But also it's free after that unless you want to get higher faster.
