The Panther 2 is arguably one of the worst tanks in the game, overall its stats in no good at all. Even on blitzstars it has the worst WR of every single tank. In my opinion, there is a big issue with this tank, and it needs fixing.

The tank seems solid. Nice DPM, 8º of gun depression, low-profile turret, and a troll af hull. Like a better version of an FCM 50t.

I'm working to improve my winrate. Currently: 45% 46% 47% 48%  49% 50% 51%ish >>> 30 days is 60% ... Currently working to become a unicum, and all tips are appreciated!

I own both, honestly, it isn't better. They both have the same gun depression too, p2 has worse power to weight, Armor is also worse, Hp is worse too.

Yes please lets buff it.  I actually heard WG might buff P8.8 because it is so unpopular.

 

Yes, it is just that bad.

I completely gave up on the line because it wrecked my WR, im kinda still recovering though. It was also a very frustrating tank too.

I really liked it, but a buff would never hurt the Panther 2.

I started trying to redeem my stats in it (one of my first tier 8's) and hated it so much, I sidelined it. lol

It would be interesting to see how they would buff it.

What I've witnessed with lights and mediums, is WG tends to add firepower in the form of more RPM, but because of the light armor, they should actually get more alpha per shot instead, so they aren't exposed even more.

One of the interesting things about Panthers, that I learned from watching a English dubbed Russian show, was that by Allied standards, the panther was in fact a heavy tank, but apparently the Germans labeled their tanks based on the gun, rather than the armor and weight.

Even though the German 75 and 76mm canons were of small caliber, they still packed a much higher punch than equivalent caliber Allied canon.

IE if the Germans had put high velocity 75 and 76mm canons in the Tigers, they still would have outgunned the Allied tanks by a long shot.

When I first started playing the Panther 2 I was absolutely clueless, I shelved it for a year and went out and tried to learn enough to play it.  It worked as my second stint with it went OK, not great, but, one heck of a lot better than the first try ...  I think it's one of those vehicles that you need to approach with knowledge in hand or you will suffer ...

~ I never say no to buffing tech tree meds/Lights. 

 

But the P2 was buffed a while back, and very capable in good hands. 

 

It was my second tier 8 Med and I noobed it badly - but ran a 71% rehab run on it for 200 games.

Nah no buff needed. Now the t62a and obj140 those are tanks that need buffs. Maybe 3 patches in a row give it great buffs. Yes!

While I think the tank is fine as is, I wouldn't be disappointed if it got the L100 88mm it has had on PC for awhile

I'm good at this game I promise

Don't play the game anymore. If you see me online, it is most likely someone else playing. I'm back

If they gave it the long bore that the E50 has of the 8,8 CM cannon then I feel the Panther would be well balanced.

 

The problem with the tank is that it has a huge AF tank profile, ok-ish mobility for a medium, O-I Exp. Levels of armor after it got nerfed (meaning that the armor only protects from the most noobish, stock players ever) and the gun depression is ok I guess.

why not buff its armor? I feel like that tank never bounce shots
