 I don't know the AT-7 and Black Prince are pretty bad 

I don't know what to say..... Just that they ain't bad.

They aren't that bad. AT-7 is situational like all slow turretless TDs, but it can DPM up a storm. Black Prince is very workable if you understand it's weaknesses. It's at least as tough as the Tiger P is.

Loved it.  Kept it.

 

That said.  The RoF needs to be buffed.  When I put it aside everything and I mean everythin was penetrating it.  At least that is my perception.  Have not played it in awhile.

I wish that my A45 was only as bad as the Tiger P.

​I had a Pz38(t) shoot at my front 5 times and penetrate 3.... There is a problem here. When a tier 7 heavy can be shot up by a tier 4 light frontally, something is wrong. Here's the crazy part. I hit him in the turret and it bounced. 203 average pen bounces off a tier 4 light tank. This thing needs a buff, either to armor, to speed, to turret traverse (please), or something.

 

Pz 38 t or Pz 38Na? pz 38 na load gold has 130 pen

well, the Ke-Ho has 131mm of pen on premium AP rounds, so the front of your tier 7 heavy looks like this. http://tanks.gg/tank...s=ke-ho&vm=live

Tiger P is beast.  I have 91 battles with 59% win ratio over 1,000 avg dmg per match.  I normally finish good matches for me personally with roughly with 2k dmg, 2k bounced, 2k assisted.  However, I picked Vk 100 P from tiger P, unlock first, I hate that tank and consider selling it I struggle to max what it does best... always last into conflict. Always find myself locked down to a light or medium having me suppressed from the herd. At choke points,  being slow, even lights and mediums in this thing can turn your match off, track you in the open artillery/TD will pound you before you get back into a cover point.

The 59% is a statistical outlier, you got better teams and games than others have. 1000 dpg is not 59% level damage.

1100dmg is pretty consistent for me in this tank, and at tier 7 when half the team is finishing with 0 dmg I am perfectly okay with that because I only do pub matches. Especially when many tanks you're facing has 600 health. When you get 2=3 kills per match you have done you part in helping the team when majority now is on somewhat level playing field with new MM. I have never had a match I recall below 1100dmg. While its also average, but I am also not a expert.  If I had 40,000 battles played in WoT I would like to think I could obtain double what I have now in Tiger P on the  regular. I am not a good player and this is my only account.  I am not far from 2nd mark and I earned mastery in Tiger P within my first 20 match.  That said, its not a bad tank if I can play well in it.  If I continue to play this tank, I feel strongly my stats will only improve I am still learning it.  Tiger P could use tiny speed buff but I don't personally think its a bad tank it could become OP with to much love.

The Tiger P is about as bad a heavy as I have played for its tier.  The ROF, mobility and suspect armor make for a demoralizing playing experience for the most part.

 

Those of you happy with 1000 or 1100 dmg in a game, all the more power to you, but for me that is not nearly good enough (unless I am in a tier 9 match).

 

The other tier 7 heavies are ALL better.

 

To be able to compare the Tiger P to these others, there would need to be buffs to mobility and ROF, at least to that of the Tiger 1.
