With the "On Line" I was thinking of re-visiting it.....I remember kinda hating it, but that was a long time ago and maybe my skills got better (Hahahaha, right). I love the 30.01H and the rest of the line up have all been one marked....Just wondering about adding this vehicle back to complete the line. Any love for the 36.01H out there?

Not anymore. It was too good for a German tank so WG took care of it ;]

By simply dropping the Tiger II, Tiger I, and 3601 down one single tier, it would make a world of difference.  Of course they would have to find a new Tier VIII but they can surely do that.

I remember it was popular with its Konisch gun when it was a medium tank.

Yep and they removed that gun, right before I got it.

I like it.  It's my most-played tank.  Though, as was mentioned above, it was a lot better as a medium with some mobility.

Remember when it was a medium! What a beast that was!

Remember when the 30.01 H was a really fast nimble medium as well. 

They were both really fun tanks, it is hard to like the current versions when you remember how they used to be.

Which gun are you guys running on it?  Was thinking of buying it back for a block mission.

I flip back and forth between the 88 and the Waffe, but I use the Waffe most of the time due to it's rate of fire.

It was beast when it was MT with .88 short. Now, its just another emasculated german heavy.

I had best luck with it using the 88. The 88 short was slightly buffed soon after the 36.01 was made into a heavy way back and it made a notable difference. At that tier having the 88 is a big plus due to its alpha. The Waffe is also popular but it wasn't the same after they nerfed it long ago. I haven't played it in years though so maybe it had been power creeped linke so many other regular tree tanks by the onslaught of premiums. Good luck to you.

Its still an option - they changed the name from "konische" to Waffe - but its pen was nerfed long ago - it was originally 165(!)

I love that "Waffle" gun, thus I love the VK30.01. But that's Tier V. At Tier VI, why give up the average damage? And when in a Tier VIII battle you gotta shoot Gold. I'm gonna play around with it while "On Track".

I might be the odd one out here, but I absolutely love every tank in the line up to the E100. Can't stand the E100, but have three marked the Vk30.01, the Vk36.01, the Tiger, the Tiger II and have two marked the E75. Heck, I even adore the DW2, just end up feeling guilty playing it, as I end up with high caliber and ace'ing it every few games in it (wish it could be marked, lol).

 

All of the tanks in the line are just fantastic with good gun handling and enough armor and mobility to work with. My single most favorite heavy tank line in the game.

Playing the 36.01H and 30.01H made me take another look at the DW2 and I feel more confident in that tank now. It sat in my garage for years waiting for me to finish grinding it out and I was glad to finally be rid of it. Playing the next two tanks in the tree somehow made me learn how to play the DW2 better.

The DW2 was always one of my favorites. Sheltered matchmaking makes a huge difference at that tier. I drove it like a German Matilda with the 50mm.
