After playing out and seeing the way the Jagdpanther changes have worked out, I have to say, I really like them. For those that don't know, the Jagdpanther HP pool was basically cut in half and the armor was changed to Panther Skirted (though you can get jagdpanther armor back form a doctrine). This sounds terrible on paper, but, along with this, the Jagd dropped to 13 pop (less than a panther) and you can now run 3 in a company pretty easily if you feel so inclined.

So even though the Jagd isn't the 1600hp inpenetrable monster it once was, it also is no longer a massive pop sink when your opponents are spamming infantry, its not a massive 700+ fuel loss when it gets stickied and you can afford to be more aggressive since you can fit 2 more behind it. The gun remains the same amazing pen all, dick on all armor killing machine it was before.

So, looking at how positively the Jagdpanther change has worked out and the fact toggles on heavies are being looked at next patch, I was wondering, would a similar treatment for the tiger be looked at positively? Maybe dropping the HP pool to p4 levels and keeping everything else the same but making the Tiger far cheaper in both Fuel and Pop?

Personally, I think its something worth discussing. I know the Tiger is an Iconic unit and people are hesitant to drastically change it, but so was the Jagdpanther before the change and it has turned out quite positively for the most part.

Thoughts?

I am personally against the idea. The Tiger is and always has been a P4++. Dropping it to P4+ status would take it down below the power level of the Pershing, and that just feels wrong (in a purely empirical sort of way).

If not, then I wipe, then someone gets something they shouldn't, then it gets abused, then the shit hits the fan and then I ban shab.

I'm with volsky on this one. The tiger works perfectly fine as is - just requires a little care in the way that it is used. Once repair kits are back and toggles are gone it's likely to find a comeback in the general community.
