Well, that's quite funny, because I just bought a Jagtiger 88 a few days ago, when it was on special. (First one I've bought by the way)

Guess I'm a psychic or something now.

Farewell brave credit-earner, who can be circled by heavies.

Your solid superstructure and pew-pew 88 will be missed.

Not so much your lower plate and shitty traverse...

Won't be missed, been sitting in my garage unmoving as they usually are since about 9.3... E25 2.0 though? Bring it on.

Just bought during sales... I've learnt to believe in rumors of tanks getting removed

Noobs don't snipe because they are good at snipe; noobs snipe because they can't do anything else / People don't lose because they lemming; people lemming because they are losers

Do not confuse team strength with individual strength; a single enemy killed in a 1v3 is worth more than two enemies killed in a 4v2 / Lanchester's Square Law predicts in a 2v1, the side with 2 will end with 1.5 tanks remaining, so if you won with less than that remaining, you're actually noob, not pro

When you are not losing because you outnumber the enemy, your other flank is losing because they are outnumbered; it's just math

Law of mirror: When you are holding a 1v6 against the enemy, you own team is also getting 6v1 held by the enemy

Noob self-balancing theory: When you release a good tank, enough noobs will flood to play it, until the server stats become average again

My 5 cents worth (we dont have 2 cents any more here)  is that I feel ( and i know its been talked about in wg)  that the removal of Prem MM tanks is a prelude to a future reduction in MM not necessary the 2 tier difference but a MM standard deviation MM where most of the tanks will be same tier with only a max 3 above or below...   And the sooner that happens the better in my opinion a more level playing field is needed for sure...

this is an unnecessary hype by WG made about a crappy sh@t old tank far superseded by the newer vehicles and the power creep. It is slow, with useless armour against anything using prem rounds and a pew pew gun with low alpha

don't get sucked into buying it just because this piece of crap is removed from sales

Well, it is a cheap tank, but not a very good one though.

Gonna miss this beast a lot :(


I'd rather buy the WT Skorpion than the Kanonenjagdpanzer. Its gun at least can hurt tier X, while the big E-25 requires gold rounds to hurt them. Armour doesnt matter since they are TD, they should have stayed away from the front line
