What a great tank, I knew it was bad, but this is _horrible_.

I hope no-one will never make mistake and ever buy that. 

Gaming experience totally perfect with that tank,  if the main goal is only to lose nerves with it.

Why to make tank like this? Tech tree one is great, but this is totally waste of space in game. If it would be russian, it would have been buffed already.

Thanks for 10 games of pure crapWG, you should enable option if you want to use rental or not.

My suggestion for this tank quickly thought is: increase speed to bit, to 22-24km/h. Or make tank even tiny bit better else way. 

If this tank is superheavy, it should be it then even from some point, and I dont mean only speed.

Errmmmm what?  You could have just removed it from your garage if you didn't want it.

 

I'm quite looking forward to trying it out for free.  And since 10 battles is probably all I would play if I paid for it that's a fifty Euro saving.

There is bit too big difference vs tech tree tank, which is awesome imho. 

Took just battle with it and here is the screenshot of that. No battles between, immediately next one after playing with Mauerbrecher..

Imho this tells all about premium garbage?

Ahh, you can do it immediately without playing? :D I love this game with this stuff: after 42k battles you ALWAYS learn new stuff of it <3 Thanks.

Even if you can't you could just ignore it.  It's not like it takes up a garage slot or anything.

 

I have loads of ex rental tanks hanging around, they make useful extra barracks slots.

Mauerbrecher overall is decent if a sponge cake like me can reach 55% winrate in it at over 250 matches. Just about the only thing that totally deflates it is that cupola. You can hide the MG port, but most of the time you can't hide the cupola in the places you are expected to go.

 

Just about all it needs is a slight cut to the cupola so it doesn't stick out so badly, maybe some 0.19-0.29 off the aim time, and maybe ever so slight buff to reload.

Moaning about a balanced premium tank. Just imagine the whinging if it was OP.

I really am not understanding this....WG lends you a tank for enough battles to decide there is no way you will ever buy one, and instead of a thank you for saving people c.£40, they get complaints for allowing players to play it.

The OP's post suggests he had a similar issue I think....he's hidden most of the tank behind the battle results screen, but still the cupola sticks out above it

What I do not like about this tank is that they removed that old SF description about the tank being used to brake the Berlin wall.

Cannot buy this with gold after rental end, oh well, wp WG.

It is a fun little tank, but not worth 40 euros in Premium Shop.

Shock horror. WG reverts to the old SerB rule of premium tanks not being as good as the elite tech tree equivalent.

Someone renting a Mauerbrecher complains it is not as good as an elite tech tree VK100.01(P).

For most of us this is excellent news.

Premium tanks should be worse than the tech tree equivalent.

SerB was right.

The Object 252U/Defender was wrong and a huge gameplay error. It would appear with the Mauerbrecher WG have at least learnt that lesson.

It is not even performing bad, it is performing as it should. And is a balanced tank.
To bad the VK100P exist which are pretty op.

How about you play more than 1 battle in it before throwing out DPG numbers eh?

That could be true. As a noob tanker, I get 61% winrate in VK100 which is way higher than my avarage winrate in any heavy tank. Except for 112 but that tank also has noobie proof armor.

The the tech tree tank is OP and the premium is balanced, Mauerbrecker is more what a balanced super heavy should look like, there are probably some issues (not sure it needs the MG weakspot or the weird inside the track weakspot) but the Japanese heavies, Vk 1001 P, Maus etc. should be more balanced like the Mauerbrecker IMO.
