It does seem a little too powerful. The ability to angle and make yourself almost immune to even Tier 8 TD and Tier 9 Heavy guns is a bit too much.

 

I don't want the Tiger II to be nerfed yet, but when it does (which I think it will be), I think taking 10 to 20mm off of the lower plate should be enough.


Excuse me while I club your double T-49 platoon with my SP I C.

I don't always club, but when I do, it's in stock Tier 9 Mediums.

The Lower Plate is an absolute joke. Even a super steep angled cresting tiger 2 is still pretty much unpennable for many mediums.

It's kinda overcooked imo. Having a stronger lower plate than the E-75 and E-100, that says something. The Tiger II is essentially a better E-75 tier for tier now, with having comparable side armor and upper frontal plate whilst having stronger lower plate and the turret being slightly weaker than the E-75 tier for tier while only losing that 128mm gun for the 105mm. I do struggle to deal with it somewhat in my Lowe now, and I win 6-7/10 1v1 fights in my Lowe against the Tiger II compared to the 9-9.5/10 times I won against them. It's like the VK lost some armor and the 128 mm gun for more mobility and accuracy. Just think about it.

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

its turret isn't hard to pen, only 100 thickness on sides and you can see the sides from the front.   If he looks around much at all you can pen his turret from the front.  The sides of the hull are easy to pen too and it is very slow, with poor acceleration, and it has bad turret traverse.     It also has pretty low dps.    Its dps is worse than the tiger1.   Most heavies should be able to pen the lower plate I think especially if the tiger is going uphill or if you are on low ground.  You can pen the turret cap also though it is small.

Anything that can pen the lower plate can pen it easy because it is a big target.

So, in a nutshell, if you can't pen the lower plate, and he doesn't look around much, just maneuver to his side.   I don't really consider tiger2 threatening, I am surprised a unicum thinks it is almost OP.

Even with all these buffs, I’ve yet to see one dominate a game. And I play a lot, too much.

They buffed relatively irrelevant stats. 

 Sure if you sit right in front of it you will be in trouble, but it’s still slow and traverses like the driver is dead.   

 

Cupola is still a frontal weak spot, sides and rear are glorious targets.

I agree it isn’t op. They just made it manageable now vs squishy. Even a pantera can pen it from the front with apcr.
