I think everyone would agree that an HP buff to the Maus wouldn't be bad at all, Maus drivers would live longer and enemies will be able to farm more more damage. Everyone wins!

 

I think if the Maus had a extremely tiny hp buff up to 4000, that would be great thanks.

No? It already has 3k. It's survivability isn't the issue. It's lack of damage output is.

Giving it 4k would just be annoying. Especially since all the new tanks have bugger all DPM.

 

What it needs is either a rate of fire or alpha buff.

Rate of fire buff needed... 4.5 rounds per minute should be enough, even then Maus wouldn't be great vehicle or scary opponent but at least it could defend itself better. Current 3.90 rounds per minute is awful  :(

Yes give it more HP, so it can give out even more free ace mastery badges every game.

MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

The Maus really just needs its most recent nerfs reversed (the gun handling and reload nerfs in particular) and it would be fine.

what mauschen's gun has better: RoF, Accuracy on Moving Tank, elevation

what maus's gun has better: Accuracy on Turret Rotation

 

just thought it was interesting that the tier 9 had a better gun compared to the tier 10, when it is usely the other way around. :D

Unnerf the gun. That nerf was very much unwarranted by the stats. The spreadsheet was very wrong

Sometimes I think it would be hilarious if the maus had like 30k hp and truly could "tank" and soak up damage lol.

Wouldn't that be a sight to see on the battlefield. Max 1 maus per side tho ha!

Imo, it wouldn't be enough. I've had Maus since early 2016 and even back in 2018 (pre-nerf) it's gun was bad. It needs more DPM, like it has on PC.

It was really perfectly balanced after WG first buffed it. They gave it the much needed armor buffs and gun handling buffs, but didn't over-buff it with the PC ROF and health buffs. It still retained its role as a wall while having a just good enough gun to threaten enemies with snapshots or enemies who ignored you. The ROF and gun handling nerfs afterward ensured that the Maus is largely incapable of doing anything other than being a wall, and so now it can often be ignored without much of a consequence until its teammates have been finished off.

Give it 560 alpha like the Pz VII.

The tank is okay as it sits, but a DPM buff would be welcome.  Running AP it is as effective as the Type 5 HE.  Solid support tank, can maintain WR, but is not going to output damage like normal tanks.  The times I've used full APCR the tank is reliability around the 3k dpg mark, which combined with it's survivability makes it quite good IMO.  A couple more normal shots would bring the normal AP dpg up...but could make a full APCR Maus a bit annoying to deal with.

It was supposedly too survivable according to the magic spreadsheet. So their way to correct this was lower the rate of fire. :rolleyes:

Although the Maus isn't a bad candidate for a buff (when was the last time one finished top of the match leaderboard?), I think the Type 5 Heavy needs it even more desperately.  It bounces less and puts out even less damage per shot with the gun.  At least the Maus can advance and hope to deflect damage to use the gun.  They Jap heavies cannot.

 

Maus needs old nerf reversed.

 

Jap heavies can live with the same weak gun & armor and slow speed, but maybe increase the DPM, so they can have a chance?

A buff would be nice. It should be a tank that is highly feared on the battlefield, but it isn't at all.

true, Japanese heavies could use some sort of buff, like maybe unnerf or cheapen the 150mm's heat ammo that got nerfed for no reason. (the HEAT was on par with the E-100's heat before they nerfed it.)

 

like seriously, 6,000 silver for 264 pen HEAT... still only 750 damage aswell.  so if you want to Pay to Lose. get a type 5 or 4 heavy and fire HEAT out of the 150mm

It can get some changes if they lower the armor to how it used to be and buff the top speed to 25 and maybe some gun buffs then. if not. no

the current armor is not very impressive imo, atleast not from what i have seen with premium spammers being everywhere at tier 10.
