Vk10001p probably better for most missions to be honest. Beyond that learn not to point your turret at people.

Maus playstyle.

1. Charge at enemy (or drown due to XVM).

2. Whine about gold spam

3. Blame team for not helping you.

4. Repeat 30000 times.

A sitting Maus is dead meat. Use movement particularly when they come in for the kill..

Sidescrape with your turret angled, holding right mouse so your sight is where your enemy will be. Release right mouse, snap a shot, angle turret instantly again. Rinse and repeat.

im trying to get hold of it.i like its gun but dont like slow turret traverse cause reds can fire when im trying to angle

sometimes it feels really solid but most of the times feels a wandering poor soul.

I guess to look at it another way, what specific missions are you trying to do?

 

The maus really is only going to be a top choice for blocking damage missions - noting not the ones that are based on your own HP. Beyond that there are probably better choices.

KV-220 runs at ~2 armor efficiency but isn't useful for missions. Same goes for, surprisingly, the DW2.

AT 15A and T28 HTC also are at 1.6-2 but are TD's.

 

Type 4 HT (~1.3) is also good for damage-soaking, lacking the miniturret of earlier tanks and the heavy guns its tier X counterpart faces against. Its side profile is also straight-edged, letting you reverse-sidescrape unlike Type 5 HT.

 

VK4502B is also at 1.3, but WG nerfed the LFP I think.

 

Unfortunately, my KV-4 stats are gone, played back before WG recorded those stats. Those 150mm-thick sides have massive potential for abuse though.

It's a combo of the Maus and the map (and increasingly the server). 

 

I got HT15.4 with hons with the Maus pretty comfortably on Paris in a Top tier match.  

 

The Maus works really well at medium to longer range, they will find it hard to target the weakspots. I first got 15.4 on a loss on Live Oaks where I pretty much sat in the open near the railway tracks with 6 tanks shooting at extreme range, most using HEAT. Really close range combat makes it pretty easy to pen you through the cheeks or the side of an angled mantlet, or even just rush to your sides. Even trying to not get to teh front line areas but a slightly more exposed area a little bit away from the main fighting areas will help. Your front lien tanks can help keep them at distance, but you are in the open for the first available shot.

 

Baiting shots is really important, particularly with lower tiers. Shoot on purpose to bounce on them, it gives them confidence to pop out and try for a shot. I did this a lot in the Paris game at the VK100 and Kran (Starts at 13 min mark below)

 

 

The other thing is the server. HK generally gives you a lot of same tier or 2 tier games. ANZ will generally give you 3 with a smattering of 2 and single tier games. Yes you will have to wait, but the better MM makes up for it. I also find the ANZ server very campy which makes the game slower and more often at range. Had a game last night were a nearly full health 263 decided 5 minutes out that it was going to be a draw and he was happy with that. The ping might also be a bit high, but you don't need ping to help you bounce.

 

Good luck with it!

VK is a very good choice for a lot of the 279 missions as well. I've got it penciled in for getting 1st class and aces in the Bloc set of missions.

From what i can tell ANZ cops a lot of players in that situation - ie connected to ANZ despite crap ping - it's just that a lot of them appear to not notice.

First thing I notice when I accidentally hit a game in ANZ is how good the gameplay is.

Then next is that the people actually chat back.

Third is of course the lag
