I know that the panzers mutz is on the premium shop now, and I was thinking about spending some $ on a tank with all the promos right now. So if you guys can give me a tip or two for the mutz, and/or whether I should buy it

No terrible tank don't buy it with how you play.  You will be eaten alive!  With a 398 wn8 I would stick to tier 3 and under.  Maybe try a T-127.

I really liked mine when I had gotten it during its initial release. It quickly became one of my favorite Premium tanks. The game's meta has changed however, and there's a lot more heavy armor rolling around. It's still a very decent tank, but it's lost some of its initial relevance because of the new MM alongside all of the super heavy tanks rolling around.

It's a good tank, but you don't seem to have played much tier 8.  A relatively new player without high tier experience will lead to frustration on your end as well as your team's.  There are plenty of better options for you.

Yes, it's a great tank and it makes good credits!  However, don't get it of you're not comfortable being bottom tier.  Also, since the MM changes it sees a lot of Tier 9 & 10 tanks.

With Tier VIII tanks seeing Tier X battles 80-90% of the time the only premium tank that I can recommend is the Skorpion-G. The rest are just a tasty treat for the upper tier tanks.

The Lorraine 40T seems to be the current flavor of the month. It's fast, with an auto loader, but French armor. It's good in the hands of experienced players,but with only 3500 battles you might have problems. Look at some of the lower tier premiums if you have doubts.

Most tanks are "good" or decent and are capable of great games.

 

The driver makes the tank "good".

If you'll for looking crew trainers, buy tier 6/7 tanks, get 2 for the price of 1 tier 8.  plus good skill training for you.

Dood, my account which I am (maybe) getting the mutz on is NOT this account. It is on the ASIAN servers which are currently not selling the Lorraine 40t. But thanks anyways!

I loved the Mutz when it came out...

Good:

1) Decent base pen for a tier 8 MT. The buffed super-heavies are a problem, but are a problem for just about any tier 8 MT.

2) Good mobility for a MT. It is not LT levels of mobility, but it is an agile tank.

3) Good gun depression at 10 degrees

 

Bad:

1) mediocre gun handling. Not French CDC bad, but still more than a bit derpy at firing on the move.

2) While armor can give you a few troll bounces, really all the armor is good for is stopping HE pens.

 

Ugly:

Hit point total is low - in fact the Loraine 40 has the same hit points, and part of autoloader balancing is to have some of the smallest HP pools.

 

The total package is still a fun tank - and even a fairly effective one. But it is no where near as strong as it was a year and a half ago.
