To anyone doing this line, brace for the Mauschen 'experience'. :)

If I paint my Maus red and put a russian star on it, can it get its turret front buffed a bit?

finally im gonna buy it. why i am so happy about that? well i wanted the maus as my second tier X tank (first was E 100), i have come to the tier IX back in the day when the tier IX was the VK 4502B. then WG changed lines and introduced Pz VII so i had to start over from Tiger P... few years later :) since then, a lot of things have changed so i am going to buy it, but not play it after i 100% my crew on it. i hate tier X gameplay :D

If I buy It I dont know if I'll play a single game in it. But I have camo for Maus so it is tempting. 

Will see if I grind credits for it.

Do you like to be slow and useless? Do you like to be gold spammed all day long? Do you want to have a bad time in wot? Then this is a tank for YOU.:trollface:

Type 5 Heavy and now Maus, spare yourself credits and grind something more useful with -10 to -14 gun depression. Maus and all predecessors are meta on maybe 4 maps in the game. VK 100.01 (P) is probably the best on the tech tree, rest are bad and have not been buffed for years.

 

Since arty nerf and HE nerf, new meta is hull down medium or heavy, all other tanks are not good anymore. And all of that because WG refused to limit one arty per game and leave it as it was, now we have no arty at all - the consequence of this bad change is lack of LTs who were feeding arty and lack of TDs which were using LTs as their eyes. WoT will became a very boring game with only 2 tank classes soon, just look at recent ranked where LTs, Arty, TDs have no chance to progress.

 

Arty and HE nerf were the worst changes since introduction of EBRs.

Lol, really? So a light is useless because he doesn't have arty to feed? What about tds, meds and heavies? I see them in all my games. They are not allowed to shoot what lights are spotting ?:trollface:

Well, even though Maus is not that good, at least as opposed to utter trash like Type 5 Heavy, it looks cool and is fairly fun to play from time to time if you can angle.

And then sell it in disgust, right after you done the HT15 mission.

Maus is the only tier X I actually like to play.

 

Yes the front of the turret is vulnerable and the gun isn't great but if you are pointing the gun at teh enemy then you are doing it wrong.

 

Angled it will bounce just about everything.

MONSTEROUS...... yeah no, the entire line is a joke except the VK100 and Maus......

but what makes the line even more of a joke is the lack of the DIESEL HYBRID DRIVETRAIN they were designed to have which means NONE of the PORSCHE designed tanks have any transmission whatsoever, so no frontal engine dmg..... second the chance of fire would be WAY less then 20% being a diesel engine it would have around 10% and then there's the hybrid story. making the Tiger P able to go just as fast forwards as in reverse meaning 35 forwards and 35 in reverse. The Tiger P line has been made in to a lesser Tiger line cause no one at WG payed any attention to what the tank and the line WAS......

so i thought ill "rush" (even thinking about rushing in this line is funny) this line at least to tier 8 for bouncing missions

from 33 of my tigerP games 19 were tier 9 (as if the barrage of OP tier 8's wasnt enough)

2 of them made me go ALT+F4 and not start the game for another day (while having free premium days as a free to play player)

 

avoid, freeexp/bluprint, or if youre a masochist, enjoy
