I just realized it *edit and gets *edit by anything loading APCR because you are basically a dead rock. I guess it can work in clan matches / platoons but solo it's just disgusting. If a tank can't move, it should be at least hard to pen from the front, especially if it's supposed to be the heaviest T10.

Thanks I was ashamed to ask for it but I definitely need one.

Go on the test server the next time its online, there you can try out all tier 10 tanks.

Good advice but still, didn't know some tanks were absolutely unplayable.

 

I also got the Jg Pz E100 and it's also quite useless, but at least it hits hard. The Maus has absolutely no advantage over other T10 heavies, you just stand there waiting to get *edit either by heavies APCR or by light/medium tanks circling you to death. And if you somehow manage to survive this, arty / 600dmg HE from TDs will finish the job. Awesome gameplay 10/10 will never play again

Being vulnerable from the sides / rear is ok, being vulnerable from the FRONT OF YOUR TURRET when you're aiming at someone is dumb as *edit

 

 

This is what angling your turret between shots is for, attention to detail wins the day. I think I still have a fairly good WR with my Maus but it's a long time since I stopped playing it because it is so, so boring. I disagree that it is useless, since the tech tree change the preceding tanks now give a strong clue of how to play it, it's only problem being that players believe at tier X they can throw that experience out the window by imagining it should be invulnerable.

I didn't expect it to be invulnerable, the problem is that being both extremely slow and pennable from the front is a HUGE disadvantage.

I know about sidescraping and angling in general but it's very hard to do in practice, especially when you face several enemies, especially when OTHER TANKS DON'T NEED TO DO IT.

If you post up some replays you should find a few posters who are willing to give you advice on how to get the most out of the tank.

Please show us some replays of you playing other tanks which do not need to consider their weaknesses.

 

I have quite a number of tier X tanks but the Maus is the only one I would play through choice.  Every singe other tier X I have is a disappointment.

do you angle your turret between shots?

 

you can pretty much park your hull in 40 degree angle against a wall so your lowerplate is quite hidden, angle turret alot, isnt easy to really overangle it, look for shoots while holding turret angled and when there is an oppertunity to shoot(perhaps when enemy has shot or aimed elsewhere) turn turret back and shoot the guy and then angle it back

 

this should minimise the ammount of pens on you and (quite) some tanks already give up shooting you

 

 

https://tanks.gg/tan...s/model?vm=live
best is to look for yourself and "play" with the live model, should show how far you can angle things and be aware how thick certain parts become

You pretty much have to angle it perfectly to avoid penned by tierX HEAT. If you just angle the whole tank, the gun pointing straight forward, 340 pen HEAT will go through the closest turret cheek next to the gun and all those unicums in their Soviet mediums know that. You have to angle the tank and on top of that point the gun to the 'corner' of the tank, seemingly overangling it. 

It all goes to crapthough when you have more than one enemy able to shoot at you... Best defense is still, as with all the other tanks, to just avoid being exposed, mother Earth is the best armor.

Being vulnerable when you show the weakest armour point at the enemy is something unexpected for you?

Oh I didn't know about the live mode, very nice thanks.

 

And yeah I knew you had to look away to angle your turret and I tried to do it but still, that's a huge drawback in my opinion, because of the slow traverse speed, and because the tank is supposed to be played like a bunker. How do fast heavies like IS-7 and such are nearly invincible hull down and I'm not ? BS.

 

Anyway thanks for the advices guys, appreciated, I will try to improve.
