Clearly Voting for King Tiger.

I have Maus researched and still like my King Tiger over the Baby Maus or even the Maus itself.


Unlike VK45 it is harder to hit with Artillery and can use much Cover.

I often kill VK45 in cover Fights because he needs to show his weak side Armor so long before shooting that even Auto Aim would do the job.


on top of that I often circle a Baby Maus when driving my KT.
Its funny to see a Heavy Tank circling something.
But in this case it works ^^

When you spend 3.5m on a tank you would think it would be better then one before it.. Well one would think anyway..  Save your credits till they fix the German tanks or nerf the IS-4 and IS-7... I find myself getting upset when I play now and have to log off.

King Tiger is fun to play while the vk4502 isn't for alot of people.

I love my VK 4502 .
Its excellent sniping tank for Long Distances
Sure I cant take as much beating as IS4 and survive but Vk is way more accurate .
If you have a brain you really will enjoy this tank . If you are a type of brainless rusher better go IS4 . VK doesn't forgive mistakes likes IS4 does . But if you won't make them it will pay off in the way Is4 never will .

One more vote FOR VK 4502.
Got it recently and really,really enjoying it.
I like it way more than KT tho it requires different approach in play style..yeah ..exactly what xray said.
Cheers

I would enjoy the VK4502 too, if something would break every time it takes a hit. Losing ammo rack, gun or turret gets old really fast.

I love my VK4502P, Once you upgrade to the 128mm everything seems to die quickly lol, But if you know how to play the Vk and use your armor to your advantage it takes a lot to bring you down, Ya arty owns us but what do you expect from a moving fortress. Ya it needs to be fixed considering most shots damage your systems.

The only system damage i would complain of are track hits..i mean ..i get tracked EVERY single time arty hits near me.
Its not that i cant live with it..but it shouldnt happen that often tbh.

Really? I hear that tank get bashed all the time. Mostly by people who don't have one, but guess what it is like. Mind sharing why you like it and what kind of results you are getting with it?

Tiger B was first thing I bought post wipe and after using almost half the tech tree on the German side and not a few Soviet vehicles (pre/post) I have to say I miss this vehicle the most. With the super accurate  88 and 10,5 and solid frontal armor, tiering, and awesome looks.

Not just nostalgia either, 156 games and the 857 xp per battle is the highest of any vehicle I have had, all 35 or so of them.

I did like 150 battles in VK4502P. Since like 40 battles it's fully upgraded (except additional modules), including the best gun available (128mm). What can I say about it? Yes it's slower than those IS-3, IS-4, even IS-7 monsters, traverse rates sux, also the turret placement is making big problem when fighting in cities, and while hidding behind obstacles trying to shoot something. But..... so far I like this tank, maybe it's not that agile like their counterparts but the firepower and frontal armor is amazing, and it can take A LOT more punches than TigerII. I've been circle-strafed by smaller thanks but always killed my opponents, unless my tank was badly damaged (modules and stuff).

And yes, it's very hard to make any profit on this tank - you have to win the battle, damage at least couple of enemies to make profit like 2-3k credits...

What I wish is that devs will make this tank more agile, at least to be the same like IS-4, otherwise there will be totaly no point in getting into german heavy line.

i like the Tiger 2 and dont intend on going further.
Tiger 2 and IS3 are more or less balanced but its harder to kill an IS3 for a lower tier tank than it is to kill a Tiger 2 or every german heavy compared to their russian counterpart, but in a 1:1 fight its pretty even on all distances but the IS3 is easier to play.

@ aslain the E series will be implemented in the future i think the E90 and E100 will close the gap to the russian IS 4 and IS 7


I have asked myself if anyone else had the same feeling, but the so praised "more accurate" german guns are a lie, the BL9 and D25T are more accurate than the long 88L71 and 105mm l68 thats my experience with 200 battles on these guns, it takes longer to reload and aim for the russians but the damage they causes and the accuracy make them a bit better. all played with 100% crew the D25T in the IS and IS-3 and since 50battles its the BL9 and i can only say that the russian guns get more accurate with a 100% crew than the german guns do, thats my experience, i get much more sniper medals on the russian tanks with these gun than i get on the Tiger 2 its weird and it shouldnt be, since i aim carefully at every target and still miss some sure hits with the long 105mm its just weird AND COSTLY anyone else had the same experience ?

PS: I dont say make the russian guns more inaccurate than the germans i just say make the german guns at least the same.

that's strange coz in game data shows otherwise. both accuracy and aiming time favors the 88 and 105. that's about the last advantage the german side has.

I could not disagree more about accuracy long range ,

The German 88 L/71 with max crew and vertical stabilizer is closest thing to a Sniper rifle  except the Conical gun.
