Cant make it work at all.   Seems too slow to run with meds - not enough armor to stick with the hvys.

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

I've heard a lot of good things but it didn't really click with me either.  Maybe it's because I like playing more traditional heavies so I expect more effective armor or something, I dunno.  I think the Tiger P is a better heavy, and the T-29 is currently best in tier, but it needs an eagle.

It's turret is stronger than the Tiger P's, so maybe try going hull down. Running with the meds works really well but, as you say, you will be slower so they'll have to lead the way. But it is a nasty surprise for the red meds when they think they're in an even fight with your meds and then a Tiger I bears down on them.

Honestly, if you want to run a heavy with the meds, the T-29 just loves hull down cover.

We must have different T-29's  - -mine is much to slow to roll with the Meds.

I don't know if this is an option for you but I love the T6 Tigers...I have them both (and not sure why) but I find them a lot of fun...which is why I play (am I in the minority here? I sometimes wonder). I really wanted to love the Tiger I back in old WoT but those were the days of 'Russian bias' and I came to the conclusion maybe it did suck...it sure can't be the driver...yeah, it must be the tank! That's the ticket!

I'll take almost any heavy over to run with the meds.  You won't be first, but you'll be there in plenty of time.  Typically, the meds will only manage to get a 1-2 shots in before you get there, and a lot of times it's fun to see the reds turn tail and scoot when they realize green meds have at least one heavy with them.

B,

 

My overall in it sucks, but I’ve done better by running with the meds recently. It can’t compete with the T29 and Tiger P, but as Cletus said, it makes the meds run.

I honestly don’t know why folks like the Tiger P.

 Cupola - easy target 

 Lower plate - East target 

 Side Armor - NONE 

 and slow slow slow, it’s almost as wasteful as a BP. 

   Tiger I is not a heavy - it’s a Heavium on the lighter medium side. 
 Just go devour the meds and then farm reds heavies.

Finally, I have been feeling so wrong with my dislike of the Tiger P.

T-29>AMX M4 45>Tiger 1>Tiger P is how i would rate the tech tree heavies.

I haven't played the Black Prince in years so I have no comment on that one.

90% (maybe even more) of the player base can't hit the cupola or the LPF.

 

I'm running both of them at around 75% but my individual stats are better in the (P).

People love it because it’s hard to pen the cupola, lower plate or the side armor when you ram and facehug same or lower tier tanks. The gun works wonderfully and while a good player can avoid getting in that situation, most players aren’t good.
