No I hate using them, not dealing with them.

Grrr my Tiger sits there 2 turns stalled, then can't shoot the butt end off of an Archer.

Next turn it yet again fails and dies to a common schmuck Sherman.

They are too slow, break down or bog too easily, and likely not worth the points to get eh.

Granted the game is realistic on some of those points. The Germanophiles are likely used to playing unrealistic wargames.

I am also finding Infantry are just fine at taking out armour.

The Tiger does indeed break down more than is realistic.  The arguement though, is trying to SIMULATE break-downs needs to be a much higher chance, to actually be FELT through the turns.  Having a LONG-SHOT odds of breaking down a Tiger seems to be a big no-no in game design.  That would be like the nuclear-explosion events in Civ III which we know now is a terrible game mechanic.

Find it as game balancing factor.
