With the workable armor and good gun it's probably one of the best tier 6 heavies around, although too bad it's missing the Citadel's spaced armor on the LFP which seems like the one reasonable buff. Anything more and I'd feel a little dirty playing it. :teethhappy:

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.

 

No, my memory is fine. The first turret upgrade had the small 88 just like the stock turret. The long 88 was the final upgrade. Theu removed the middle upgrade when the TT lights started to get to tier eight.


“Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never consistent. It depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.”

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.

 

As other have stated, the tanks have Tier differences.

Tiger  217 is fine as it is, yes it struggles in tier 8 games but  so do all tier 6s. When top tier its a monster.

All these T-VI Tigers are OK as is. They don’t need any changes. 
Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

I have the HT VI and do well in it at tier 6. They're fine, but I wish they would stop making copies of them with only a single difference or two between them. The zimmerit coating looks nice though.

The HT-VI, the Citadel, the 217 specs are all the same if I remember correctly. You will need to use prem ammo sometimes, but not all the time. Tank does well at top tier, Ok in tier 7. 

Don't really need to make changes to make them competitive, but hey, if WG wants/decides  to buff them...…….

"when top tier it's a monster" You're making me laugh... :D None of the tier 6 Tigers are that tough, Kaiju in a top tier however is a true monster, especially in some urban map ;)

Citadel doesn't need that lower plate spaced armor it has. Its annoying. Long Reach has the same thing for some reason. Bounced T29 and Tigers with it.

Will WG ever have WoT offline like they promised?
