I think that panther is for FOTM retards, same as F2.

Tiger is a tank with balls that requires at least some skill.

i agree, but skill doesn't really overcome 2 spawns, better pen and arty IN GENERAL. like with skill i could beat a spit22 with a beercat1, but we know which the better plane is.

Panthers better. You shouldn't classify a tank as good because it's harder to kill things with than another tank. That's the complete opposite of good. They need to change the mechanics of heavy tank gameplay. Currently there really is very little point in playing one over a medium of the same rank

Isyel
May 24 2014, 09:32:30 AM
Not even sure that is such a bad thing tbh. If you are good at it you're a monster in one, if not meh.

And it's not exactly harder to kill things in a Tiger, a little less pen but more damage so whatever. Panther is better, but tiger is anything but terribad rly.

Herstal
May 24 2014, 04:09:41 PM
I don't have the Panther yet, so can't compare, but the Tiger is a monster. Finally i can wash down the bad taste it left in WoT.

EDIT:
Revised statement - Tiger is a monster, sort of, but its turret controls are made of spit and twigs.

Mantlet was 120mm thick at the most. Turret front was 100mm.

Should be fairly tough but seems 100mm or so in WT. I assume the mantlet armor isn't modeled.

Isyel
May 26 2014, 07:38:45 AM
Stop being shit seriously. If you shoot a tiger straight in the mantlet you will do fuck all. Problem is it's got enough massive weak spots on the front in general it doesn't fucking matter.

It's not fucking invincible and it's not meant to be.

Well, WoT Tiger has the (unhistorical) long 88, and it got buffed considerably last year. I never played the buffed version though, and the original Tiger had the added misfortune of being my first WoT heavy, back in 2011. This may have a large impact on how i remember it :P.

I only played a few matches with the WT Tiger so far, the gun is very good (almost all one-shots), but the vehicle itself is probably a bit too fragile. It might be more of a problem with the T34/57's 200mm (iirc?) of pen at BR 4.7 (again, iirc) rather than the Tiger itself. Still, fun to drive.

You don't need apcr to pen them from the side and that's where all the ammo is.

with the d5t or the 57mm from the front you need to go for the drivers slit, the mantlet is bounce city.

Obviously Tiger is better thats why they give you two Panthers.

But why take one when you can have all 3 amirite?

Nah they are bigger according to the distances and I feel like i'm using a bit more (excerpt on kar) but yeah they not super big anyway. The tanks are a LOT more accurate tho so I feel that's what skews it
