To all that own this tank may I have your thoughts and experiences with this tank as I am wondering weather to grind out this earn op for it. It looks great but looks aren't everything,it's how it performs. I don't have the hammer and I know I can easily earn this as I have 423 pts already and I know it's a pretty reliable tank to play from seeing it perform.So if you could give me your thoughts u would really appreciate it  Happy tanking

Im also interested for thoughts on it. I have the 131 so I see no need for the Hammer. King Tiger can make lots of silver that I know (60%) silver multiplier. The Hammer is only 30% I believe.

It's a tiger 2 basically. There are differences in stats but they're negligible at best to anyone but a Unicum maybe. If you like the tiger 2 you'll like it. If not then you won't miss out by passing on it.

No it isn't. And it wasn't really about the looks which are subject to opinion. The differences are incredibly minor at best and won't change how the tank performs for most players. I get that people here like to hate reskins on principle but having differences of tenths of a second doest equate to "far worse" you aren't going to notice that barring maybe being a Unicum

It basically the same stats wise as the fully upgraded TT Tiger II. Same gun, view range, tracks, traverse speed, turret traverse is only 1 degree lower for KT, etc etc etc. it's basically the same tank all around. The KT has 50 more hit points, not much, but it's something. KT will garner you tons of silver at 60% and you get the 15% XP multiplier. Heck, for free if you can grind for it....why not? To say it's far worse is a bit of a stretch.

Lower rate of fire, worse accuracy, slower aim time.

 

But sure,  it's basically the same.

the RoF difference is meaningless its so small.

 

the difference in gun handling is important tho. why they have to ruin premiums i dont know. your paying for that increase in silver & xp. neither makes you more effective in-game.

There's no reason for it to be worse.

KT 5.66 ROF, 2.5 at and .34 disp. ....TT T2 5.77 ROF, 2.3 at and .31 disp....that's too minuscule to make it "far worse" as one said.

+0.02 power to weight ratio

-1 deg turret rotation

-2 deg hull rotation

+ 0.1 terrain resistance

-90 radio range 

-0.11 reload

-0.2 aim time 

-0.02 accuracy 

 I don't get how this is "far worse" maybe the radio range but I don't see it changing much

To simplify all of this....this ^^^ basically. Plus you will make a lot more silver in it and XP multiplier. That is all.

Now that we got the stats out of the way, back to OP's reason for this thread...how does it play in matches? Those of you out there that have it, how do you like rolling out in it? Pros, cons, enjoyment etc.?

Knowing this... It's worth the grind.  You'll be getting a 12,500 gold ($50) tank for free which is almost identical to a fearsome Tiger II plus the big silver bonus and some XP bonus to boot.

Heck no!  Captured Tiger is almost a stock Tiger II.  THAT is truly a far worse Tiger II.

When they were selling the 50k gold bundle I wondered why would anyone want a second package Tiger II to begin with!

I love my captured tiger 2 the L/71 Is a much better gun than it gets credit for.
