I know there is a discussion on whats the best earner on the tier 8 prems i have a few but i always go back to my JT88. not the fastest and you are arty no1 target( thats what stopped me getting my pools again) but love the gun and once you know how to play this tank it will earn you a small fortune (this game had a 1.5 bonus op added to it too).12096365_10207560784200457_7473116812247

Does the premium JagTig88 get pref match making? For $40 I hope it does, this is a silver maker here.

I sold it and then had it restored. I feel a bit better about it these days, but it's not my favorite Tier VIII Premium. Perhaps what annoys me most is that when you die in it, you die that ignoble death where the enemy surrounds you or circles you and you're either tracked or too slow to be able to return any fire as a consolation for the inevitable outcome.

lol yep and thats why i have certain positions on maps wher i can reverse in to a wall so that the scouts cant get me too much and have to back off. one of the 9 kills was an amx elc scout sitting right behind me reversed him into a wall constantly while shooting a su100 lol. bounced him off the wall 7 times for 160 damage before he died :)

Great game! :) Looks like an awesome tank. Waiting for a bundle or sale to get it.
Be equitable.

Nice!

 

What happened to me recently, for the second time now in the JT88, is that I reversed against a wall while fighting a Soviet heavy - KV-4, something like that. I killed it, but then I was left stuck between its hulk and the wall - I tried to wobble my way out of this mess but I couldn't - I got finished off by the reds after they finished everyone else. This was on Ruinberg and I got into the same mess before on Mountain Pass, also against some Soviet heavy - that event also serves as an example of having useless teammates, because I had another TD right next to me (some British AT if I remember well) and they could have helped me out (I messaged Immobilized! several times and they were facing me) but that player left on their own and passed me by without trying to nudge the hulk and later he issued a Help, to which I replied again: Immobilized! (this time with more satisfaction) I had to wait for the Reds to find me and finish me off. Such experience takes away from the better moments you can have in this tank.

yeah once you get used to the gun it is really efficient. it also teaches you where to shoot tier 9s weak spots as at  this tier as guns pen not as forgiving at 9 than if you get a tier 8 game. ive got it down to 4.2 second reload

it is a great tank mate just to say slow tank compared to some tds. takes a bit of patience to play. as all german tanks protect front lower plate and armour will be fine. ive seen to many JT88 sitting in open and getting destroyed easily as the drivers dont know the strengths and weaknesses.

yeah the engine is what really lets it down especially if trying to push a carcass  but if it had the same engine as normal Jagdtiger then it would be seriously overpowered at tier 8. one thing is dont get disheartened as do what damage you can as this premium is about damage and  earning money. just remember to stock some premium rounds for heavily armoured not that standard rounds wont pen if you aim right but it makes them stop and back off if the loss 400+ health in 4-5 seconds

cheers mate i'm currently sitting at 87% on it to even get it higher i would have to have maybe 10 games like this one in a row before even getting close to the 95%for the 3rd mark closest one to that out of my tanks is currently the t32 which is 91%

What equipment, consumables and skills/perks do you have on it if you don't mind me asking?

rammer Binos and vents,i tried the GLD instaead of vents and i thought was slightly worse for for pen and traverse etc. probably just me but went back to vents and it played better for me again(i'm sure other people would say GLD a better option but just my opinion). standard fire extinguisher, firstaid kit and repair kit. no point using the large ones. skills 14 skill german crew. i use my jagdtiger crew in it or my 15 skill  e50m crew. i have other premiums i use for training crews etc like mini maus ,e25, t34-88( german and Russian trainer) and some times the PZV/iV. Since it my main silver earner no point putting a lesser crew as you need all the help you can get grinding silver

I have almost the same equipment on mine.. camo, rammer and bino with a small repair kit, 100 octane as it helps with rotation and standard fire extinguisher. I have almost 13 skill/perks which belongs to my T9 Jagdtiger though I also use this crew on my Pz 5/4

Nice battle...kudos. Other than its silver earning, I hate this tank. I find it amazing that some of you can find a spot to afford that much potential damage w/o being flanked and killed. Sniping support TDs just aren't my thing...can't seem to do them right.

I enjoy blasting these things through the front hull when they think that hiding the lower plate actually helps.

I play this tank like a front line heavy being aggressive as possible always trying to hide the lower plate..Snipping is way to boring for my liking
