Hmm the JadTiger.

I was just looking at the NA forums about this TD.
http://forum.worldof...er/page__st__40

It seems it got a lot of downsides, even though its a Tier-9 TD, especially on its camo value.
So much so that players even forego the camo net to go with it, and the front hull isn't 'working' as it is.

Does future patches 'fixes' the JadTiger downsides, esp the camo value since it's meant to be a sniper and stealthy.

Any insights for those who had obtained and used it?

P.S Eventually I found out TDs are not really that sought-after in CW (probably only the T30).
If only sniping is exclusive to TDs, that would probably turn the tables around. :)

Just to add on which I think probably summarizes the Tier9- TDs:

All three Tier IX TDs perform different roles. The Jagdtiger is best at sniping. The T95 is best at halting an enemy advance (for a time). The Object 704 is best at peek-a-boo and medium-range sniping. If you take a Tier IX TD out of its native element, it won't perform like a Tier IX TD anymore.

Jagdtiger is no slouch, Dragon. It's got great rate of damage, and can go hull down (unlike the other two), but it's got a big weak spot on its lower glacis. Otherwise it's a fearsome tank to fight against.

Ya I know what you mean. I'm not bringing down this tank, don't get me wrong. :)
Anyways I shouldn't be blaming it on the tank since it's only a tool I used, but rather honed the skills behind the fella managing the tool. :)

Hull down spots not a lot in some maps. I tried to spot a few while playing but only a handful.
Unless I can shoot some ally tanks and push their scrapped metal around the map. :D
