Does this game have British tanks yet? Hella lame if it doesn't.

It's got French tanks. Can't get any lamer than that.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Except ANY tier 7 heavy tank is easily penned in the front, and the Tiger has the best tier 7 gun, especially for pen. The Tiger just has the easiest job of doing it. :P

It's, frankly, my favorite tier 7 heavy.
Which is why the Tiger feels so underwhelming when you first get it. You'd expect a sturdy as **** front line brawler, instead you get something more akin of a heavy backline sniper. Which is kinda the typical role most high tier german tanks tend to fall in due to their high pen/high accuracy guns.

None of the tier 7 heavies aside from the Tiger P are really frontline material. At that tier, they ALL get easily penned by each other's guns from the front, it's not just the Tiger.

The E-75 also has the best armor of any tier 9 heavy.

Say what? Played yesterday and they moved the transmission into the front.
One lucky hit and your engine is half gone.
Plus, after pointing this out and telling my team I hang back to snipe the enemy, a T32 startet shooting me...

The KV-3 is pretty decent in the frontline role.  The armor is bouncier than the numbers try to tell you, and it's got a beatstick for a main gun.  Tiger P has ridiculous front armor but a comparatively squishy turret and a gun that out-pens the KV-3's 122 mm, but falls waaaay short of the damage.  A hull-down T29 American tank is a thing of terror if they've got anything approaching a decent gun.

It's really just the Tiger, the IS, and the AMX M4 45 that get shafted at tier 7.

The Tiger P's front armor is not nearly as good as its stats suggest. The 200mm plate actually covers a very small portion of the front of the tank. The angled sections, the entire lower glacis (the portions angled both back and front), and the machinegun port are all about 50mm. Really it's just a thin strip across the front where the machinegun and driver's vision slit are.

I have an E-75 and don't have this issue.

The Tiger is fine, as it has extremely good acceleration and turning, and is really good at angling its hull, plus the gun kicks the **** out of the awful gun the IS and KV-3 use. The DPM is higher, but the damage per shot is lower.

Gonna have to disagree on the gun, having gone through both Tigers, the IS, and the KV-3 individually.  Higher alpha is pretty significant if you're playing peek-a-boo in cover like any intelligent middle tier tank.

Gonna have to be more specific on that.  The early AMXs (38 and 40) are pretty bouncy - for their tiers.  AMX12t, AMX 13 75, AMX 13 90, AMX M4 45, AMX 50 100, AMX 50 120, and AMX 50B are quite frequently the least bouncy tanks for their tiers.  Well, the M4 45 is alright, but the rest of them feel kind of like plastic frames wrapped around huge guns.

So, got the Super Pershing and got to say...
It is slow...but it has sick armour, a decent gun and it makes enough creds.
Downside: As soon as you're spotted, the whole enemy team is shoting at you.

8.0 is apparently scheduled to include the new new physics engine.

Time to catch air with my Hellcat.

8.0 is also apparently supposed to include things that make it easier on my poor laptop.  10 frames per second, here I come!

Also will have some new Soviet TDs added, a British premium tank added (Black Prince Matilda), as well as possible tier 10 heavy adjustments.

Hold it right there...before they add any russian TDs, they should rework the german tree and add the second branch of german TDs...

They already added the JagdPanther II.

Not sure why you think the Germans need it before the Russians.  The Americans got a second tree before anyone else, and they (besides the French, obviously) are the most recent nation to even get a TD line.  It's clearly not dependent on how long since the last addition.

That said, Nothing in the game needs an overhaul more than German Heavies.
