I'm currently grinding to the maus, but then I started being active on the forums.  I seem to find that many people hate the maus and perfer the E-100.  Is there any reason for this? Was it nerfed or is just bad?

In the past, it relied on its armour, which it could do just fine. Nowadays, the guns running around now chew the Maus up for a snack. Its own gun isn't capable enough to make up for the lack of effective armour. In general, it's a bad tank.

People say the same thing about the E-100 all over the forums.

I wouldn't take their advice.

The tank is fine; Wargaming's map balancing ability is not fine. I understand the need to balance maps so that artillery can do well, but they need to keep in mind that the Maus+T95 also need some areas where they excel. Maps like Abbey and Lakesville are good examples of where artillery can land their shots while super heavies can do their business.

*Shrugs*

I'm mutli-grinding the Germans, Americans and Russian Tanks. Not fully dedicated to the French or British yet.

Personally, I don't quite care and would rather have first hand Experience of said Tanks first (I do not and refuse to do Test Servers).

Currently researched both VK 3001 (P) and PzKpfw VIB Tiger II off of the PzKpfw IV and PzKpfw VI Tiger respectively, due to the free one day Premium Account and x5 Event. Sadly, did not purchase both Tanks yet.

I for one would like to obtain both E-100 and Maus.

Most tanks are fine. Just do some research and adapt to using tactics that are good for maus.

Most important: always angle when facing an enemy...most people(especially those complaining about it) don't do this. And the angle you can do is huge, because of the 185mm of side armor. AND THIS INLUDES THE TURRET...99% of mauses don't do this, angle it away after you fire, you can angle eve more than hull, 200mm side turret armor.

fighting a maus who does this is very hard in most tanks, only high pen guns using gold will pen the highly angled lower plate, and still will bounce often.

The e100 is a brawler...it is great close range, and if u 1vs1 and u face hug something, consider it gg, especially if you angle your turret after a shot, you have to angle it slightly less than 45 degrees, since your side turret is lower than front, so about 30.

I see people complaining about the E100 a lot more than the Maus *shrugs*

...but people will complain about everything possible.

Personally, I'm going for the E100 because I also really wanted the KT and E75, so I committed to grinding that particular branch early on.

The Maus can be a very usefull tank but to work it it needs support,a lone maus is a dead maus it also draws fire like no other which makes it a good distraction especially from arty who for some unknown reason dont seem to care about anything else thats happening except getting that pesky Maus.
