After testing the new Tiger---> I think the AOE and veterancy nerfs are fine, but I don't know why the Tank Commander ability was removed on top of nerfing AOE + veterancy. The change is very very weird and counter-intuitive. It just makes no sense at all that you can upgrade the KT with it but not the Tiger. Meanwhile you can also upgrade the P4 with the tank commander? 90% of the player base will not get why this was done. This change needs to be deleted IMO. Tiger is fine after AOE+veterancy nerfs, no need for this awkward change.
We've had similar arguments when Pershing lost vehicle crew ability.
That turned out to be fine at the end.
It'll be fine for Tiger as well.
OKW one dominated meta so badly, the only situation when you would ever consider different vehicle was if you already had it on field.
It was never supposed to be this answer to all magical wunderwaffe it became.
