World of Tanks: The Pzkpfw VI "Tiger I"

tl;dr: battles last night saw our platoon of tier 7s get matched over and over low-tiered, and/or even the only tier 7s in the entire battle, of both teams.  And we lost more than we won and stuff....

By the time I opened the Tiger I in the German tree, I had already completed the then German TD line and medium line (JDT and Panther II proper), and had the sense to want/open such a legendary tank, "the right way."  Thus, so, I used free xp to research all modules, made sure I had all equipments, consumables and a veteran 100% trained crew, prior to its first battle. ...all in order to produce (get ready for Charlie Sheen) winning!

How friggin cool is it, that I found a pic of Charlie Sheen, with "Winning" in the background, and displaying "Tiger Blood" and/or, Tiger stripes... whence blogging about winning ... in a Tiger I tank...  Oh come on this is awesome!!!....

So, for many battles, I played it solo, but with care.  I had read and was aware of its vulnerabilities, and tried to take advantage of its gun.

Needless to say, after awhile I was simply not doing as well as I had wanted, and so, I parked it from solo play.

Lately, I've been breaking it out again, but only in platoons, to take advantage of the "carries" that I platoon with.  This, too, has not gone well due to, get ready for it: match making IMHO.


Finally, I resorted to, last night for the 1st time in the Tiger I, sprem. <-- still lost.


the end


Here are some cool pics of the Tiger I tank, cuz like, adding pictures is important and stuff....
