AFaik, KT is not supposed to earn much. If u need creds, switch to a cheaper money maker (hell... a leo can make 10-12k profit if assigned to a good battle :) )

What gun do you guys use?  Between the repair and the ammo cost, 1050 each, I am having a tough go too?

Normally I'd say 88, but with every other tank being an IS-4 or Tiger II, you really need the 10,5cm.Make sure you run Premium of course.

They seriously doubled the price of the 105mm round on the KT?!

...Wow.


Why don't they just remove the German Heavy tree, save a ton of players their time/energy.

Because it's fun :)

Been running around in a Platoon so every battle facing off against IS-3/4 spam, even fought two Maus and they lost.

It's point of value at this time.


..You -do- realize that your King Tiger is paying the same amount of Credits that I am with my JadgTiger's 128mm....

And Yes, the 128mm is better in everyway....

Besides the part you compare a Tier VIII to Tier IX.


Did you miss the part where I said I was having fun? You know, in a Game :)

If you want to play with a calculator next to you trying to figure out how to be the überest, please do. But don't go into every thread crying about how terrible everything is.

Same as Tiger I, KT is not a moneymaker and it not supossed to be. Matilda is, leo, pz III also. But the gameplay with a KT, even now when you are facing lots of tire 9-10 is awesome. That should be enough. :rolleyes:

Gabriel, funny. But, meaningless. I have never cared about having the best tank, otherwise I would have more russian tanks than I do.

That said, Face it. It's mostly BS that they upped the cost of the 105mm round by more than 400 Credits without -any- change to the shell data.

Then follow the fact your engine is slower. And I've been hearing reports of the 107mm easily penetrating the front armor on the King Tiger.

Rather makes me glad I -didn't- buy one right away (got the JadgTiger instead >.>), and more doubtful that I'll re-buy it.

Oh, and if you want "facts" look at the bottom 3 shells in the screenshot.


As for the Tier to Tier difference, I'm trying to say that the 105mm shell should be CHEAPER than the Higher tier Gun, why? ...Oh I don't know, because it's better in everyway?

Yep. It's retarded atm.

I got to the point, where I just let myself die if there's only like 3 of us versus 7 or so on the other team. It's just not worth it to shoot. Might as well die and pay the repair bill.

Also, the KT does not cost 12k to repair.

It rounds around 13~15/16k. With a 1k per shot, that goes around 25/30k easy expenditure per match.

In fact, in a KT it makes no sense to kill anything above Tier 7, since you waste more on ammo than you'll ever receive in rewards.

I make around 5-10k credits profit with my KT. Depends on the team ( if I'm lucky/unlucky ). I've killed is7, Maus almost all tanks from tire 3 to 10. You have to know how to play your tank. As I've said before after the wipe most ppl jumped on tire 8,9,10 without even playing a heavy. And now they are complaining, without a reason.
Most of them saw before the wipe how an IS 7 can wipe out an entire team so they thought will be the same after the patch too.
That's why is beta, what's why where will be other wipes, so the next time you will have to choose wisely before complayning about your tank.

As for you 3cxO dont blame your tank for your lack of skill.
