hey mates i got a new tiger 2, and i've got just enough credits to buy new equipment. I'm choosing between vertical stabilizers and vents (i moved other equipment from the Tiger(H). Which one do you think i should get?

Thanks!:Smile_honoring:

Go with ventilation. As a slow heavy, you won't be shooting on the move a lot to make a good use of the stab.

I use the Ammo rack, Rammer and Spall Liner on mine, my opinion the ammo should do more damage, especially to the pesky Type 59's!  Overall the tank is fun to play with but it's a total money pit, but I have the T15 and T25 to keep my credits up.

In my opinion the King Tiger is the best Tier 8 tank.  So worth the long grind to.

I second that...  The KT seems to get better the more I drive it (or maybe I finally figured out how to play this game).  I routinely get 3 to 4 kills a game which is a higher average than the loaded E 75.

Stab reduce how big of your reticle so you don't need to wait full time aim to shoot it.
also since heavy mostly peek-a-boo (even KT doesn't fit this but you will force to do it sometime)
Stab really worth.

think about quick Med circle around you and your reticle bloom as fuck, that's not pretty  <_<

ive just had this tank a couple days now..i have the best gun mounted, but do not have the turret or tracks unlocked. i might save those exp points cause i have a lot of free exp saved and schouldnt take me but about a week and half to have the e75..but i gota say i love this tank im about 80 battles in with it i have a 54% win ratio ( wich has as always a lot to do with team your own) and a 83% hit ratio. I just finished my 4,500 battle and this is the most fun i have had yet with a tank. It fits me perfect , my playstyle is hit 5 tanks down to nothing get maybe 1-3 kills a game somtimes none, to me this is hlpn my team win more easy if those 5 t8-t9 tanks are left with 20% hlth win im dead and done with them..I cant say enoughf good things about this tank..Love it!

you need the second turret. there is no word of a lie in that you will practically gain invulnerability to face shots form Tier 8 and below guns

i love my KT  :Smile-playing: got 10 kills on it. and a KT with a Rammer, Ventilation, and Coated Optics are an awesome sniping beast.. and yes dont forget to use the frontal armor properly, cause it can even bounce a shot from obj.704, T95, or other tier 10 Heavies, or TD's

Not all heavy is a peek-a-boo tank.Almost the whole German line is about sniping.

You can call me crazy but I was expecting more from the KT after reading all the "best tier 8" hype. Even after full upgrades in 80-90% of the matches youre thrown in you still have to play it very much like the Tiger I. Maybe all be KT love is because it's such a big step up from the Tiger that seems to have disappointed most. Me, I loved the Tiger, got my first Wittman's with it.  so I was expecting a radical shift, "now I can stand toe to toe with the big boys," kind of attitude. But you really can't unless you want to die fairly quickly. Took me a while to figure out you still need to play it like the typical German tank. I like the KT don't get me wrong. But I don't think it's that much better than the IS-3. Both are relatively fragile to in-class and above and both have very nice guns.

I'm close to my King Tiger, it's just a case of about 15k more XP and then some gold grinding and she'll be mine. Always wanted one, I tried and did not like the JS3 even though I had the best gun on it I always seemed to bounce shots and died rather easily, I doubt i'll try getting the E-75 as when they (EVENTUALLY) come out the French line will occupy my time, I want me Char 2C and an AMX-13 but I know the Koenig will not let me down.

Word of advice: Get the tracks and turret BEFORE the gun. You'll be alot happier knowing tier 7 guns can't penetrate the turret reliable and regularly, and you're completely immune from guns up to tier 6 from the front.

Can anyone explain to me why the Tiger 2 is slow in this game? the Tiger 2 was as fast as the M4 Sherman in real life.

Is it wrong that I like driving the Lowe more than the KT?  Granted i don't have the long 105 yet, but the rest of the tank is fully upgraded

Edit:  I completely retract my earlier statement. I have the long 105 and its a completely different tank

The KT doesnt REALLY shine until you have 100% crew and the last gun. It feels weak without the last gun and the second turret.
