Wow, the second complete copy paste Tiger after the 131, not to mention the Japanese one. Seriously, what’s the point?
Tank clones are cheap to make and there is a niche market for players that want them. Honestly, it would be better if they were sold as additional skins but I think this is a better alternative to wargaming’s current over powered premium tank print outs.
As for serious reasons why this isn’t a bad tank to add, German crew option which is a big plus with reworked female voices. German crew training if you don’t want to spend thousands on a tier 7 or 8 you find lack luster for the price tag, and it is a decent strong hold tank. I know this is nearly identical to Tiger 131 but at the moment, I haven’t seen any 131’s so I would be hesitant to say there are too many tiger’s on the battlefield right now.
Tiger 131 is a better tank. better penetration, better reload time. and, its a tier 7 tank that only goes up to tier 8
I like to think of them as a “lesser evil” compared to OP tier 8 premiums
I was hoping to buy Tiger 131 but… would even WG seriously bring out THREE premium Tier 6 Tiger clones (including HT No. VI)? Will 131 ever appear or should I just buy this one? I do want a vaguely historically accurate Tiger I…
The 131 is actually in the game files and has a model u can view, but that’s the extent of it.
Being in the game files doesn’t mean it’ll actually appear – it could be replaced with this one. I doubt it – I assume there’s been some financial deal with The Tank Museum – but it’s no guarantee.
I guess it will be available on Tiger day. http://tankmuseum.org/whats-on/events/bovevt53768
really? 3 tier 6 tigers? tiger no6, tiger 131 and now 217? wg???????
220 damages per shot ? I am still troubled by this passage from the earlier 240 damages on the 36L/56 ^^
Nice zimmerit effect
Anyway, still a shame to make à premium tank from what is basically à stock standard tank à tier lower
(Tiger 2 H, jagdtiger 8.8, Tiger 131)
Nice zimmerit effect
Goodyear thing to implement more historical tanks from aces
(Tiger 247, Thunderbolt)
Sad they are only premiums
But still a shame to make à premium from what is basically à stock tank and putting utiliser one tier lower
(Tiger 218, Tiger 2H, jagdtiger 8.8)
That is the historical tank, upgraded tank is just fantasy. Just look at panther for more obvious sample, real one is the “prototype” in same tier as premium Tigers
Hehe…All these clones are WG’s admission that the Tiger I should really be a tier VI.
Seriously, Tiger 217 is the one of all these that I will buy. The Zimmermit effect is awesome and it’s a hero tank so it will likely ship with a BiA crew. Besides, Tiger 131 is the tiger that surrendered to the allies. Tiger 217 is the German hero tank.
A somewhat pedantic correction – 131 never surrendered. It was abandoned by it’s crew (who remain unknown), so you could say it WAS surrendered, but the crew did not surrender. They may well have served in other tanks and killed many Allied soldiers…
You are pedantically correct :). Tiger 217 is still the better choice for me now.
131 is going to have a Zero skill BIA crew. Going to be coming out next week on NA Server.
Thats wrong. The 217 is the so called “HERO” tank and will come with the 0-perk BiA crew, but not the 131. 131 might be a mission reward next week.
I called out the Tiger 131 for being a needless addition when we already have the HT no VI… do I really need to call this out for being yet another clone attempt?
Seriously, are WG that fucking desperate for money that they would try to sell the same tank but with 3 different names?
This shit shouldnt have even occured as a thought to anyone. I’m sorry but who ever is giving the OK to premiums and how thet are balanced lately needs to be hit round the head with a sledgehammer
oh yer, just don’t allow my comment, way to be a cunt and silence an opinion.. that’s cool, fuck you too
I wonder if it will catch on fire more?(since the Zimmerit paste was flammable and was removed because of it)
This were only concerns, that were prooved false.
But the order to not apply it to the tanks was not revoked.
and another funny thing: in the book “Tigers in the mud” written by Otto Carius is a picture that is labeled “authors original tank” and the number on the side of the Tiger is 213 and it don’t have machine gun on top of cupola
I still say they should’ve put 131 in the British tree. Would make a nice alternative to the Excelsior and TOG II and would perform even better than that weaksauce FV201.
Why does WG do this to me? What is the point of this tank being added when the 131 is already going to have zero skill BIA crew?
In case you didn’t know in addition to Tiger 131 being added on coming next week WarGaming is adding Tiger 217 for a future sale. Both of these are currently going to be HT #6 clones but German with 131 going to have a zero skill BIA crew, we can only assume 217 is going to have one as well. My only question is why add a second clone of an already existing tank?
I’m no legal expert or have any understanding of what is going on but the only reason I can guess is because The Tank Museum own the rights to 131. Much like Fury they would have to strike a new deal and give them a cut of the sales which means they can’t just sell it when ever they want. Since 217 no longer exists and no one owns it (prepare to insert foot into mouth) they can cutout The Tank Museum and keep all the profits for themselves.
TL: DR Tiger 217 is a cash grab to undermine The Tank Museum.
Have to wonder if 217 will have a BIA crew? ( it should)
I have been desperately waiting for 217 to come out but this is all we get?? I was really hoping for some unit markings etc. Pretty disappointed, but may still buy it.
I imagine the 131 will appear around Tankfest. Not really bothered about this one, and the 131 depends on cost.
[…] -Statistics and Screenshots […]
And again. Just don’t buy it. I don’t know why you all get sand in your vagina about it. Ignore it and maybe WG will stop doing this kind of thing.
[…] The up coming Premium tank. The stats. […]
