Panther was made in 1/40 Ostheer matches and 9/67 OKW matches in WCS. Schwerer was made in 75% of matches and in 73% of matches either T3 or T4 was made for Ostheer. Panther is obviously not a very popular choice in 1v1, even if short matches were excluded.
Maybe the IS2 armor nerf + Ostheer tech improvement + Tiger AoE nerfs will change that, otherwise I think Panther could do with a small pen buff. It wouldn't change anything against mediums, but make it the defacto heavy counter for Axis, which Stug G and JP4 can't pull off. We'd have to see after the patch hits.
This is more to do with tiger meta, panthers have always been built in past tournaments.
Btw Jagdpanzer kills church or Pershing faster than a FF can kill a tiger.
Let's drop this "JP can't counter heavies" myth
