I have it. It's not very fun to play. I would not buy again knowing what I know now.

You have been warned.

Don’t buy it.   It’s super hard to carry and even do good in it.  It also doesn’t jell with the current set of maps.   If you want a German TD premium, wait for the Skorpion G.

The jt88 could use a buff but I’m not sure where.

It's far worse than the turreted version. You can have mine if you want.

 

Probably the best looking AT in the game imo

Didn't read a thing in this thread, but I can tell you it's a horrible, horrible tank and there are so many better options for the money. People are different and maybe you'd enjoy it, but it's a terrible tank.

Bad pen. Need to use premium ammo on tougher tanks - vk100.01p - forget about it.

It was a great tank for Island Race because it has so much cheap ammo, and the speed buff still made it faster than the super Pershings. The armor bounced shots to get you that op too.

It got buffed so it's not as slow as everyone remembers. It was back to being decent until things like the VK100 started being more common. Bounced premium rounds off the lower plate and top hatch on the first VK I met in it.

It's max speed was buffed but not it's engine. Result: It's only faster down hill!

One of the very few premium tanks I truly regret purchasing.

This and the PZ T25 need some serious buffs.

 

If you want a german money maker, get the Lowe.

I know this thing has been in the TT forever and I have seen a lot of them in battle. I know it's slow as hell but it  has some good armor and a quick firing gun. I seen one behind a hill just showing the super structure, bouncing  shots for days. he also got a Radley's . I know not to let no one get beside  or behind me. I have killed a lot these TDs myself doing just that.  I was thinking about getting one, so if you drive one, give  it to me straight !! :P

I would suggest picking up the patriot or MLE 49, they are less of a "specialist" and more well rounded tanks than the 8,8 cm k pak 43 Jagdtiger.

When the game was first released it was a great premium, people didn't know weak spots, pref matchmaking, great dpm. But since then there has been the release of a lot better premiums which make more money and cost around the same, you should invest in the new defender or patriot when they're released. I like my jagdtiger 88 but if I had the choice between that and a patriot I'd pick the Patriot any day. But, If you do decide to get the jagdtiger, run premium gas on it for the engine power and extra track traverse, it costs 20k but it prints sliver anyways.

Hope this helps!

Yes. Get the Lowe. It is buffed. 

 

I ran into a Lowe a couple weeks ago. I had forgot it was buffed and did not give it the respect it now deserves. The Lowe took me out and two of my team mates. I believe I was in my JT 8.8 as well.

 

The JT 8.8 did get a speed buff, BUT it did not get an engine power buff. It still has an anemic engine that struggles to move it around. However, straight line speed does not help as much as one might think in the JT. Overall top speed is only useful for getting to initial positions and relocating. Once you start engaging the reds, engine power would be much more useful. 90% of the match should be engaging the reds not running around full speed in this TD.

 

I made a big mistake getting the JT 8.8 when I did instead of the Lowe. It was before the buffs. The buffs have made the Lowe a good tank and the JT not much better IMO.

It can be frustrating to play like any non-turreted TD but it's far from horrible. A lot of these posters must like easy mode tanks. It has been power creeped somewhat but you can still carry in it. With PMM and ridiculous silver rewards it would not be a waste of gold. It all depends on what you're looking for.

Get it, since the beginning of last year it has been power creeped like the IS-6 was when the fatherland dropped , or get the kv5 that’s another wonderful beast that nobody has a problem destroying. I hope everyone buys it or some of the older premiums. Just stay away from the Lowë please.
