Bought the Mauschen, had 6 battles in it, won just 1, abysmal average damage and close to zero impact on the team effort. Awful even by my rather low standards. Sold it, won't bother again. Just too slow a tank for the ridiculously fast battles that dominate the current meta even in top tiers. I have a few slow nostalgic keepers in my garage from past grinds, but I will not waste my time and nerves on grinding any such vehicles in the future unless the game is somehow drastically rebalanced - which I hope doesn't happen. Sure, there can be come epic battles with slow tanks where you end up standing like a rock in a good place, but in most cases you are just dead weight, and I don't want to be that.

Would that be Matilda by any chance?

This is why WoT has so many tanks, it doesn't matter if you get fed up with an entire catregory of tanks, it has others that you will pick up and play instead so that you don't leave,

The Mauschen isn't great, especially after the over powered VK.100 01P, it's sort of a mild taster for the Maus, and that is worth the grind (for a slow super heavy thug).

For me it's the Tortoise slow or what, armour not to good, great gun tho. Decided to keep on the way to the deathstar... Now that's a different story. How many times do u grind to a tank only to be disappointed.

It`s getting rebalanced in 9.20 IIRC. They`re making it faster and removing armour. Might be wrong on that though.

Barring a few exceptions like the Maus, good players (should) play better in mobile tanks because they can relocate and influence the entire map rather than being stuck on one flank. 

 

Btw, I haven't played the Mauschen myself, but I heard upgrading the tracks and engine makes it way more mobile. Before that it's terrible.
