I just need a little bit of advice.

Last few months i decided to go for the Maus line and i love it. Its the most fun tanks i played so far, and the most successful ones for me as well.

My win rate is poor (but getting better all the time) but with this tanks it was quite ok...

Tiger (p) i have on 59% after 125 games

VK 100.01 P is on the 51% after 129 (never elited it only the gun)

Maushen on 56% after 72 battles, only free exped the gun and will not upgrade it further i like it the way it is and just want the Maus anyway.

 

Now after i get the Maus (few days time) i will go back to Tiger (p) to grind a new line.

I was wondering what to go for since i cant seem to make up my mind.

Tigers to e75 to e100 or the vk 45s to PZ7

 

So maybe someone who played both lines will be able to tell me what will be more fun and more suited for me since i like and do well in the Maus line. tnx

Both play very different and very different from the maus so Really... Just go on a test server and see what you like more.

Go for the Maus, more forgiving to play. Just know where the big heavys should go and go there asap because it's slow indeed and if you won't sponge up damage your team will fall in front of you and you'll be surrounded and dead in no time.

I would choose PzVII over E-100, just because of survivability.

Between the 2 I would suggest E100. Solid tank, with high alpha, 3 usefull ammo and nice armour.

I think you will want to have the E75 and the PzKw 7

 

I have the E100, and I struggle in all tier 10 battles because of the gun's poor penetration (246) with standard ammo (pens a tier 9 type 4's frontal weakpsots about 30% of the time) and because the E100 is so receptive for HEAT ammo.

I haven't played it yet, but I guess the PzKw 7 will be better in randoms because of better pen and smaller size, rounded turret and people not knowing its weakspots.

 

on tier 9, the E75 is superior because of better mobility, meaning you will get more kills in battles where your team dominates. penetration is dull though, also 246 :-(

I can't recommend the VK 45.02B because of high vulnerability of its cupola area where too many shots pen.

Tnx to all that responded.
246 pen low? For me that sounds planty.
At least on the Mauschen i feel confident fighting tier 10s with that gun, and think gun to be very easy to use... Do you think i will hate the same gun in the Maus?

246 is a bit low in tier X, but it's workable. For maus, the problem is that it can't pen itself without gold...

In todays meta i would recommend PZ7 over E100.

 

E100 is simply outdated. It could use a similar treatment like the is7 got.

Its armor is not reliant, the only truely redeeming feature of it, is the 750 Alpha.

well, there is an armor "sweetspot" at about 245-250, meaning quite a lot of "weakspots" have that armor strength when angled. so with 246 pen, 50% more shots will bounce than with 258.

Or you could have the VK7201 which has the best of both world, the E100 gun on the platform of the PZVII.   Gonne get one tomorrow ;)

I got my PzKwVII yesterday, did 2 battles in it.

I would say it's pretty solid.

The tank in average on 2 battles blocked 5 times its HP and did 3111 damage.

It has better gun stats than the E100. More precise, takes less time to aim and keeps its aim better.

I could also clearly feel the advantage of additional pen, I had no trouble penning an angled LFP of a Maus.

 

The armor can be pretty trollish and excellent for corridor maps.

I play it similarly to the T28 HTC, i.e. I show my angled front and hide my sides, the opposite of sidescraping.

Except the stupidly weak gun mantelet, the armor is pretty strong including the side armor, so a good bit of that can be shown.

The weakest armor part is then the LFP with 270 equivalent or 290 when correctly angled. Hide it, and the PzKwVII becomes very tough to pen.
