Popped up in the store today, for 2,500 gold. I’m a really big fan of the tank, and hope to see it in real life someday. I wanted to know if any of you own the tank. If so, is the tank worth it for that price? I saw it in battle, and the frontal armor is lacking a little bit. Thanks in advance.

Crappy tank. The Vk 36.01 H is much better.

Yeehaw,

I've got 2.5k gold sitting on my account right now and I'm really considering buying it. I'm a huge fan of history, and I've always wanted a Tiger tank to keep and frankly I just can't seem to click with the tech tree version. It looks like a decent tank if you don't already own the Tiger Kuromorimine SP, but Meadsy says otherwise. I'll probably end up getting it anyway, just for the historical value.

I own it. It's not terrible, but it's not a tiger 1 at tier 6 if that's what you want. The Vk36.01H and ARL are hands down better. If it had the speed of the Tiger 1,it would be terrific, but it's slow. The Koro Mori Mine has better stats for some reason. Even though it's a clone.

 

The nice thing about it is you will look really cool while taking advantage of the tier 6 players, just be sure not to play when Boris and I toon in our Dickers.

Ok then. I have an ARL and a VK, haven’t played the ARL yet though. If the Tiger 131 is not effective, I’ll just play the other heavies. What’s the point of having a tank in the garage if it’s not fun to play.

Let's take the Kuro Mori Mine, give it a cool skin to look like a famous tank and slightly nerf it and then sell it! Players will eat it up because it's a famous real tank!

 

Yeah....

 

I got it as a pop up offer for 5 bucks a few months ago. It's only worth 5 bucks..maybe I'd consider $7 for it which is around what 2500 gold is.

 

If it was such a great tank, why would they be selling it for so cheap when just last year it was much higher?

 

It has the same armor as its prototype predecessor (the VK) which is 10 tons lighter.

Just saw the 131 comes with 30 days premium and 10 x5 certs. All for 2500 gold. I would say that is a good deal.

The stock Tiger gun is 100% viable at tier 6, but as you say the lack of speed mitigates the fun factor. If I was dreaming of playing like a medium at tier 6, which is exactly what I was dreaming about, then it falls short. KMM is a war crime.

Indeed, very cheap. The package is 2500 gold and the tank is decked out with equipment. The 30 days of premium and random boosters are the kicker. For anyone needing premium this isn't a bad deal. Use the x5 certs in gravity games messing around and generate Free XP, then burn through that sweet premium time. Not a bad little deal overall if you consider the tank worth a little bit.

I got it out of one of the tier 6 crates. Haven't played it yet but it looks alright, though I didn't particularly enjoy the playstyle of the Kuro.

Hey Ronald. Looks like you beat me to the punch on the nice perks in the tank bundle. 

 

Mok has been keeping a low profile due to the paparazzi  and the bikini model incident I'm sure you heard about. For the record, I did pull off the wicked weasel bottoms and I don't care what TMZ says about my "hairy lumps." Sorry, got off on a tangent... good to be back with all the fine folks.

It’s meh. 
Not terrible, just not worth buying. 

Yeah, I'm back. Let's not make a big deal about this.

Yeah, the 30 days premium, garage slot, equipment and 5x boosters make it seem like a good deal. Im thinking about it too.

I’m greatly disappointed in the Blitz Tiger 131. Love my TT Tiger I and on console the 131 is a Tier VII BEAST. The Blitz iteration is just awful comparatively speaking. Tragic for such a legendary, iconic tank.

I am thinking of buying that package only for the premium, the question is that if I buy two packages they combine 30 days to make them 60 or nothing.

I bought it and the 5xp alone netted me about 30000 xp after 5 wins in gravity mode. I think it was a smart purchase. Not a crazy great tier 6 tank, but not horrible either.

Bought it for the 30 day premium and other perks.  Used my free gold that Wargaming gives you every day
