Der Tiger Ist Mein!!!

by SandWyrm


Finally, a tank I can go right down the middle of the map with in World of Tanks! Well... sometimes. When there's not a Maus and 3 Lowes above me in the fight. Farmpunk and I did a battle tonight where my Tiger and his T-29 were the scouts at the bottom of the list. Ouch!

  1. yeah i got the tiger and thought i would be the biggest and the baddest..... ohh was i wrong...... and 16k for the up gunned 88 thats alot of points in a tank that doesn't do great, I play mine every three games or so so i can make my moen back from the repairs that the tiger cost

  2. they really need to sort the match-up system in that game out. i have a great time playing tiers 2 and 3, but any higher than that and it just starts to suck. when you get 10 hits in a row on a tier 7 and do no damage, and then get one shotted, there is something very wrong.

  3. Know the feeling. During Beta test I had the same kind of problems...scouting with a King tiger is quite tricky :-D

  4. Well, the tiger becomes a totally diff tank once you get the massively expensive final engine upgrade. It's totally worth it.

  5. Working on that upgrade now.

    The top gun on the Tiger is worth the points, but I wish it was more accurate. With that long barrel, you'd expect to be able to snipe things from range, but no way. In-game it only works as a close-in fighter.

  6. I'm still trying to get my Hetzer upgraded :(

    59% hit ratio, kills? ZERO!

  7. I've already got my Stug. :D
    I'm working on my Panzer III, among other things. On the topic of being lowest tier scouts, I often received more gold and EXP when simply scouting straight ahead with my A-20 (Now a T-34, yay!) than I ever got by shooting things. Sure, it was always a one-way trip that only lasted about 1-2 minutes (depending on map size), but hey, more time to work on other tanks.

  8. Figures, really. I'm still grinding my way through the M4 Sherman.

    Hey, my Leopard is my top earner, and I barely ever kill anything. Or last longer than 2 minutes.

    Of course when I am the first or 2nd tank watch out! Because the heaviest tank in the match is also the fastest. I will be coming to your base and getting at least 4-5 kills that game. :)

    The Hetzer just blows. I sold it and got my Stug with free experience converted from my Leopard.

  11. Heh. Scouts. Don't underestimate them. I actually managed to get 5 kills with my A-20 during a scout run. Biggest payday of my WoT career.

  12. Forget the M4 sherman...take the M7 and shorcut it to M8Ae Crazy 8 Sherman. As for volume of fire, let me sing the M7 praises again...with that M7 + 100% crew + Shell Rammer, I'm getting off 34 accurate Pen 115 rounds (at 500m with V-scope)per minute. That fekking gun is amazing (and it's only the 2nd upgrade of 4 that M7 can take...but still the best for the tank). Sure, the damage is low...but what good is big damage if you can't penetrate? It also has only one type of shell, so don't have to bother worrying what shell is best at the time. Most games I average around 12-17K in cash. It also has the BEST manueverability/turn rate of any tank except the chessy T-54.

    Are you on the North American Server? Farmpunk has tried finding you, but no luck so far.
