3 marked Tiger 1 and 2 here.
If I've got a few advices, they're the following for Tiger 2:

Get it fully equipped. That means the packs, the equipment (I run vstab, gld and vents iirc), the kits and the crew (6th sense, BiA, Repair, track Repair etc etc...)

Now for the gameplay :
When top tier you're the biggest fish in the pond, don't snipe from afar, you're supposed to be on the front and bounce shots with your excellent frontal armor while dealing great punches to the reds facing you. Beware: your lower plate is the weakspot, hide it. ALWAYS. Your commander's cuppola aswell so don't remain static too long while aiming your shots.
When low tiers you're no joke either IF you handle it well. You've got NOTHING to do on the frontline, just don't be targeted by those X TDs and heavies. Your role is to provide support from second line, preventing an ally from being flanked / overwhelmed. If you can't Pen them up front, hit their tracks, track assist doesn't seem like much, but keeping that bastard is7 immobile just those few seconds for your arty or 4005 to focus and blow him up is vital. Bonus: they'll spend their precious Repair kit on a track and won't be able to save their ammorack/gun/turret later on...


Anyway :
Whatever you do, NEVER do it alone, a Tiger 2 is mobile and nimble for a heavy but fighting 2-3 reds surrounding you and come out as winner takes a lot of luck and skill, to be honest it usually ends in your doom.

As long as you've got the stock turret, keep in mind it's front is a weakspot, once this is solved, have fun.

As much as you can, go where the fight is expected to be the most intensive, especially top tier. That's where you have to work. Not the opposite flank where 2 Light Tanks will spot you and their red TD buddies will tear you apart from out of sight, leaving you with 0 damage and a wasted Killing machine.


For the rest, it's up to you to find your way, good luck tanker :)

Never ever go solo in a tiger1/2/e-75. As they are second line heavies join the Lemming train stay a bit behind the frontline and let the awesome sniping gun do all the work. I suggest to learn the most usefull "frontline sniping spots" for every map, not as far as td's use to sit but a bit off. If the Red team has thinned out you can go into brawl but always keep in mind to protect your lower front plate. To "protect" the cuppola while reloading turn the turret left/right works pretty good (Like your Tank says "No" )

 

Cheers Boys!

Tiger II is a great tank. Actually love my Tiger II almost as much as my 131. My suggestion, once you get the E75 stop. The E100, in my opinion, is hot garbage sadly.


German armor and German armor only, nothing else will do...

Why do you say this about the E100?

I have it, hence my opinion. It is not up to par with the rest of the TX heavies. Could use a buff in a good number of areas to make it compete at the TX level.

That, and the 75 looks better than the 100, imo.

I dunno. I had some amazing matches in the E100 with the 15cm. Bouncing a two full clips from a waffle, e5, and then being cornered by an E4. But yeah, it was 1vs 6. Brought it down to 1v2. 


I will eat your unhappiness.

Some solid advice in here about tiger 2.

Stock grind is not much fun but just keep going. Don’t be afraid to use prem rounds until you’re upgraded and even then you will need to use some when your bottom tier. You will lose credits in some matches so it’s a bit of a balancing act as to how many prem rounds to use.

Learn to side scrape effectively. German tanks are great for this. Depending on the amount artillery or type of map, sometimes in t10 matches I’ll follow a maus or e100 and help out in the main battle. Be careful not to get in their way though. Other times i use the tiger 2 as a pseudo medium, but as has been mentioned earlier don’t go alone.

I really did not like the Tiger 2 in my early tanking days, but after having recently earned the King Tiger I can say it's one of my favs. Not an easy tank to play well as a beginner though.
