The grind is real with this tank.  I had passed it long ago, but am finally going back in again after WG messed with the German tech tree.  I remember (and Pepperidge Farm does too) back in the day when the TigerP's turret armor was beastly and you had to weak spot it or flank it.  Now, there are mediums with turret armor that's just as good (and sloped, so more effective).  I'm realizing how strong and example the TP is of power creep.  At least the L/71 is still freakin awesome.  I wish WG would go back to some of these original tanks and give them some armor buffs or something to keep them inline with the new trees.

3 5 7 is the problem.  Tank is still decent for it's tier.

I have two marks on mine, tank is fine, perhaps it could use a handling buff.

 

Not a big fan of heavy/medium tanks of doom with [edited]proof turrets tbh

the only tanks that get armor  buffs are the Russian biased tanks

on almost every update

and the Russian turns there back on all the other tanks trees that need it


 

screw  you wargaming  and your Russian biased tank trees

Maybe.  Not against the Polish heavies though.  Was just side scraping against a 53tp and he did 253 damage with HE.  With [edited]HE.  The 45TP has 170 turret armor and gets a 105 with better aim time and only 11mm less pen on AP but 80 more dmg.  Even the Tier 6 (6!) Polish medium has more turret armor and it's not flat.

I'll probably get my first mark tonight.  I'd take a handling buff.  Or ground resistance buff.  It made sense to be heavy and slow when it's armor was top dog.  Not so much now.

I know your pain. This tank is a sniper tank if I've ever used one. I had the VK 4502 B but WOT restructured the German tech tree so now I have to start with this baby to make my way back to the Maus. I would take the Tiger I over it any day as I've had a lot of success with that tank but the tech tree choke points you into the Tiger P. You can do well with this tank as well as you treat it like the squishy heavy it is.

I have this tank in a little over 70 matches in it I got my first mark in it with a 56% wr...angle ur armour and side scrape..it does work. I'm not a pro by any means but the 88/L 71 is impressive..reload a tad under 7 secs..with vents food bia..it's not the tank ..it's a support heavy. Pick and choose ur fights..and it is a decent credit maker..no gold spam needed unless you go up against the most heavily armoured heavies.
