How is the best way to use it?

 equipment, module research order, hulldown or sidescraping?

Or where I can find someone skilled in this heavy?

Your best bet is to sell it and buy the Tiger P. 

 

I haven't played it in a long time but I feel like it's been power crept.  It's armor just doesn't seem to be what it used to be.

play it like you're a medium.   I'm at 61.98% with 121 battles in it, one of my top tanks that I never even realized I did well in nor really enjoyed.  
It's a game, not a d!ck.   Don't take it so hard.

and by using the past tense you certainly meant 1942 ?

That's exactly what I meant, but the subtext was that my last battle in it was April 2017.  But I've got a 62% WR in it.  I was basing my power crept observation on playing against them, primarily in the Tiger P, where I remember  I used to block some shots in it.  So I guess I might have been a little unfair, the P is a little bit OP in tier 7.

Tiger I - It's strengths are DPM, pen and mobility. So run with the mediums or do initial spotting for other heavies and then let them take front line while you either support or flank.

 

Tiger (P) - Bully everything. Keep driving forward while angling to protect lower plate and wiggling turret to protect the hatch. Don't get in to peak-a-boom matches with higher alpha heavies. You have to be aggressive to take advantage of that DPM.

It can also sidescrape in a pinch. Especially against mediums. Hull down doesn’t seem to work for me. Run it with the mediums and it does very well. Try and frontline it and you get to go back to the garage early.


I used to have a picture here but tiny pic took an arrow to the knee....

I’ll added to the medium consensus. It’s a heavium. Play it on the medium side of the map, keep that gun firing and wolf pack it with T35-85s etc.

Hull down is is good for tiger 1 but if its the tiger (p) don't the cupola or the top hatch is going to be shot . tiger 1 hull is a box so you be sniper or do a diamond form as for tiger (p) the hull is good the side don't expose. the gun for tiger ( p) is slower than the tiger 1 .

Treat it like a fat medium with heavy tank hp and a laser accurate gun. You should see some improvements

Must. Have. 60%. Winrate. Under. 0.5%. Platoon. Rate!!! (30 day)

 

I have 11k WN8 and 2.5k WN7 on my Leichtraktor (Nano_Virus of the DAMGE clan). Not sure if I should be proud of this...
