I have been preaching this all along, the Tiger Tank is not a front line heavy, or a  Brawler no matter if it’s top tier or not!! I have been taking a lot of bashing and criticism about my play style in this the Tiger 131 such as “you’re a camper, you ride the back line, and you don’t move enough!!! yap yap!! No matter how good I do in this Tank, it’s the same old thing! But I’m here to say right now!! WG has got it right!! The Tiger tank is a heavy support Ambush predator!  And I have been playing it as such and will continue to lie in wait to pounce!! on unsuspected red enemies.

Give us a 3 mark review guide on the tank, to help others play well in it.

Bro you almost have 1k battles in it and haven’t even marked it. You even have a sub 50% win rate in an overpowered tank. I don’t think you should be saying your playstyle is vindicated. You can’t even out preform 65% of people while trying to justify that you’re right and everyone else is wrong?

Imagine being so bad at the game that you believe Base Camping behind Arty to be 'Ambushing'.

I am a PC Player who randomly posts on here sometimes. 

I also do mod stuff. You can see some of it here.

True, but he is helping everyone else by lowering the requirements, so give him some credit.

Except that's not how requirements for MOE/Ace work.

 

Only the top score is relevant. The thresholds are just a percentage of whatever the current top score is.

"Play style" is something which should be applied at a tank level, not universally regardless of tank.  Knowing a tanks strengths and weaknesses, and adapting accordingly is a critical skill in this game.

 

Specifically with regard to the Tiger 1 (and variants), they are heavy tanks, which can be played in a support medium style when not top tier. 

If you are top tier and you are not close to the front line, then you will typically be handicapping your team.  This doesn't imply brawling, but you need to be in a position to take on the red top tier heavies.

Don't waste your effort with op. It's pointless.

You, sir, are 100% a cognitively impaired eejit.

 

The Tiger and all its variants are not "Ambush Hunters". It's far too big to be stealthy, and it's not speedy enough to offset that mass.

It's a second line support tank. Your main role is to stay shortly behind the front line and whittle down any threats that they might face.

Sitting several leagues behind them is a less than optimal playstyle, beating only AFK and actively killing yourself.


You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

You act as if that's a difficult task. 

 

I'm saying that the only worse playstyles that you could select are either not playing at all, or only playing enough to get yourself killed. Usually drowning, but cliffs and firing squads do work.
