Ok, so I understand that the Tiger 217 does not have the same gun as the fully rechearched Tiger I, all good so far.
But it only has 950 hitpoints... the Tiger I has 1500! I think that the difference is too big for two almost identical tanks.

WG, please consider a small buff for the 217.

Isn't the 217 a tier 6?

Free Tiger 217 is tier 6. The Tiger 1 is tier 7.

That's why there's a bug difference in hitpoints. 950 hitpoints puts it joint 3rd for tier 6 (with the other tier 6 premium Tiger reskins) only the Churchill VII (960 health) and Tog II (1400) health have more. The Churchill and Tog are significantly weaker in other regards.

No buff needed.

It’s strong at tier VI. I have the Citadel and Heavy Tank No VI. They are all essentially clones of each other. No buff is really needed.

Years ago, the L56 was an actual option on the TT tiger one with the top turret since that is the historic gun. It used to fire faster than the L71 at the cost of penetration. The Citadel/217/HT6 do not need buffs. I know since I own all three of them. If anything, they could use a maybe, just maybe a slight hit point boost. Rounding it up to 1000. Thats it. Nothing else is needed.

The L/56 with the upgraded turret on the Tiger H has never been an option on console. It may have been an option on the Tiger P in not sure, but I know for a fact it has never been an option on the Tiger H. 

 

It has been requested, more than once. The rate of fire would be the same as what the Tiger 131 has.

 

In fact, the Tiger 131 was the first to use a historically accurate gun/turret combination. It was one of the major selling points.

 

Also, your last 4 sentences contradict each other. Either you believe it needs a buff or you don't. You can't say you don't then argue for a health buff.

May as well make it fight what it actually did in the real war, give it 1000 health. We'll finally have something more op than the Pz V/IV.

 

Not like there's any new players experience left to ruin.

It won’t be fair to the bots though! Someone please think of the bots!

I think these tier 6 Tigers all need preferred match making. They use Tiger's reputation to sell us an historical OP tank and what we get is a pinata box. I like Tigers and I would love to see then perform as advertised by WG. So PMM is right thing to do for tier 6 tigers.  It won't make tank OP but it would make it more fun to play.

Trust me, it was an actual option before they changed it. The tiger one used to have four upgrades instead of three. I know, it was my first heavy and my first three marked tanked. I still have the simple 50% crew I started off with it with eight skills now.  

 

The second part was the little three tigers do not need any buffs, but I would welcome them just because. Otherwise, they are fine. 

 

If anything, nerf the damn V/IV health.

OP being ironic surely?

 

unless topics are now being auto generated by spider bots that trawl the forum for oft-repeated topics, to mask the fact that the forum is dying :ohmy:

You spelled 131 wrong... or perhaps.bought the wrong tank. 

Tiger 131 has the things you are looking for.

Nah, Tiger 217 is quite a capable tank at its tier. No buff needed, I say!

I fear your memory is deceiving you. You unlocked the long 88 with the stock turret and the final package was the iconic turret and the big engine.

Look at this review from June 2014:

Edit:

Back to topic. The tier 6 Tigers don't need any buffs. They're fine as they are.
