With 40% wins in my Maus, I think it's time to sell it and put the crew back in my 55% win Mauschen

An interesting experiment to play some games at tier X, but not one I shall be in a rush to repeat

I had the same experience with my m48 Patton. 45 & winrate and gunmark progress, while my m 46 patton hat a 50 % winrate and a gunmark.

Its still fun to play tier X, but also a lot harder than IX.

Hey bulldog! 

Actually Maus is more interesting than Mauschen! 

I have 61% WR on my Maus IIRC, it's easy to play, just don't go anywhere alone and don't rush to early. 

And not to mention how much does HEAT loves Maus! So don't expose it's turret a lot only when you are sure about penning the target. ;)

That's because of the T9 & T10 MM difference. You won't find any 279s or chieftains in T9, also even other CW reward tanks, and you meet T7s most of the time which are.....meh?

It might be more interesting (though I didn't find it so) but I'm also a liability in it.  There's a finite limit to how long I will play a tank in which I can only get 40% WINS

Like Lootenant Briggs in Magnum Force, I know my limitations.

One thing I know from years of reading this forum is that tanks that suit good players don't often suit bad ones

You average three penetrating shots per battle. It's easy, you just have to do more of those. Problem solved. :)

Bulldog, don't sell tier 10 tanks. Move back the crew and keep it as you may never now if in future you will want to play it. ;)

I'm afraid my Maus has been already composted into repair kits.

But as I rarely grind anything and have premium I usually have tens of millions of credits accumulating with nothing to spend them on but gold ammo.

In the unlikely event that I want to buy the Maus back again, I can easily do so.

How can you like the Mauschen :) ? it's so trash that it's painful to grind for me. Big weak point on top of the turret and the armor isn't even that good. Thank god i had 5x exp missions and left the stock state where i had to fire gold basically 70% of the time due to the guns low pen. I can't wait to get the Maus

If you find the gun on the Mauschen bad, wait till you see the gun on the Maus

I's the same gun, but now shooting at tier X

As I say, there are good and bad players in this game.

What suits a good player rarely suits a bad one

Wahahaha Homer_J works like Youtube algorithm. He corrected it!

Honestly, I don't see many Maus players lately, though I don't blame you guys.

I love my Maus.

 

In fact it's the only tier X I actually choose to play apart from CGC, all the others have been a huge disappointment.

 

Never played the current tier VIII and IX though, I got mine via Tiger P and two VK45's before the trees were altered.

@OP
Weren't you writing "easy to play"?
See... when you face reality compared to the bullsheep that people write on the internet (forums) the awakening could be hard.
