The steel giant that is the Maus, a Tier X heavy German tank, is quite something. If you want to know more details about this glorious vehicle you should check out this video!

Only 30k exp to go to the Maus, but I have given up.  Immobile arty magnet with a puny gun.  The only thing it ever had going for it was armour, and we all know what that is worth these days....

Then roll out with Maus, you won’t regret it!

Unless somebody bought a truckload of gold ammo. For example last weekend, when there was a 50% discount...

I think the MAUS is a good tank if u play it right (in a good map). This video show's the pro's and con's pretty good

Video is one of the better ones I've seen, only because it is honest in a sense.  The only problem is that the armour and (in many cases) angling < premium ammo these days. Secondly, they openly admitted that it fails miserably on many 'open maps' so unless we get the chance to select the maps we want to play it on, then this is a fail concept since the wonderful MM picks the map for us and soon we'll be dying against the arty cap of 5 per team, lol.

I'm still waiting to see the 'armour advantages' the brit tanks have they advertised in the vid on the brit tanks. Surely they meant 'armour disadvantages'? Anyways, enough said. toodaloo.

Seize this non-sense! WG produced video that can be called somewhat useful!

I'm really disappointed on you, WG. You used to have such unlimited power and capabilities to make such boring and useless videos.

Seriously, as a video this is much, much, much better than older ones. Actually somewhat informative (especially for new players), looks decent, new and better narrator, in short good job as a video. But yes there are issues on Maus and other "old" Tier 10 tanks which are not explained or brought out on video and I'm not going to start discussing them here again for Nth time since T110E5 came out and started Penetration War.

Keep doing good videos WG! You're improving but I just hope your self-improvements in future are not just in the World of Videomaking but also reflect into the game itself.

...And come on, hire British narrator! Ask Stephen Fry, he does anything for little money!
Heck, Stephen Fry telling me how to play for example new Tier 10 British TD... Shut up and take my money!

What did you smoke WG? Translation: Do you want to be the first smoking wreck to cover your allies on the battlefield? Then you must buy this huge,slow,shit armor,shit gun conglomerate of scrap metal!

at least you are honest WG. contrary to this video only thing you have to do in Maus is 'go there and hide' 'go behind rock and hide' 'go to town and hide' etc lol

Tell about the armor to T10 meds and TDs and golden ammo guys. 3k HP what a joy, I can survive like 2 shots from arty without much chances to hide and at the end finish with wonderful repair bill. Yeeey.

But still you gotta love this machine, amazing to watch this piece of steel.

LoL'd at that video.....

Maus on scale 1-10:
Mobility: worst of all T10's (1)
Firepower: worst of all T10's (1)
Armor: strong on paper but unangled and VS gold useless His effective all around armor rating is mediocre at best (3)
View range: not important for a 20kmh fast house (1)

Overall..... if your driving a maus your just a masochist that likes to see enemies kill you few seconds longer than usual because of you huge HP pool..... what a ridiculous video, WG just won admit that maus is a crap tank thats no good for anything else but blocking the road with his wreck.

Are you looking for a vehicle that has good stamina and solid armouring? Then roll out with Maus, you won’t regret it!


BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

These vidios are awesome, you learn loads from them all and I would like to suggest making them availeble in the tech tree for each tank. Having these types of videos availeble in the tech tree, would make it easyer to look up the weaknesses and tactics for the tank your driving but more importantly the tanks your facing and I think it would sagnificantly increase the enjoyment and skill of the people on the battlefield.

Regards Sigma
