Hello fellow tankers!

 

Today I purchased the Jagdtiger 8.8 and recorded the first several matches I played with it. This isn’t an in-depth review, but more of an off-the-cuff first impression to help you determine whether or not you want to buy one.

 

Should you buy it? Is it good? How’s the armor? How’s the pen? How’s the mobility? Does it really catch fire that much?

 

Hopefully this video answers these questions and more. It’s a bit long (at nearly 30 minutes it took four friggin hours to upload) so grab a tub of popcorn and enjoy!

 

My best,

 

Thunder

I just bought the Jagdtiger 8.8 this evening and it took around a dozen matches to get Mastery (on the Malinkova map) .  Although I'm not a TD driver, it is a LOT OF FUN to play!

Awesoomee video~ I personally like this type of commentary better. Not saying that your other commentaries aren't as satisfactory but this just sounds more "laid back" if you will. More videos like this if you have the time! :medal:

Most definitely, dude. It's VERY fun. Weird play style, but I dig it. :0)

Thanks, TDog! Definitely worth picking up. Especially if you need a TD to grind crew xp.

Thanks, grantcha! That's good to hear, dude. I'll probably end up doing a bit of both. Maybe I'll keep the more formal voice for the in-depth reviews.

Great video. I'm loving the jagdtiger 8.8, such a fun tank. Only took around 15 battles to get mastery. I agree with you, definately worth buying!

Don't plan on buying it, but that ROF is incredible (the tank as a whole looks great in the right hands, haven't seen much of that yet though)! Thanks for the great vid, informative and fun to watch. Well done!

The ROF reminds me of the M10. It's definitely a fun tank and super sturdy.

Ran into a CandyJagder platoon earlier, they were well played and worked together alternating shots...it was like a continuous rain of fire into our team!

Thanks, Zeno! I'll definitely be doing more gameplay videos in the near future, I've just been focused on grinding that blasted British line. The FV4202 is so close yet so far away. Lol.
