What really pissed me off today was the following: An IS-7 rammed me and I was stuck with him in my front and a destroyed tank behind me. Face to face, I couldn't penetrate the IS-7 turret using HE shells. Why in the world can an IS-7 penetrate my turret from the front using AP shells while I can't even damage him using HE shells? How can you seriously justify that? He was at 10% and I was at around 35% to 40%. He killed me because my 3 HE shots didn't damage him while his AP shots penetrated me. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. OF THEM. And want to know the best part? My HE shells DAMAGED MY OWN GUN. Are you bloody serious?
Another time. I went up against an IS-7 24 meters way from me. I fired 5 shots at it's lower hull and none penetrated. Why did you give a much worse gun to the Maus and not only that but, it actually reloads SLOWER than the IS-7 gun? Maus ROF: 4.69 RPM while IS-7 ROF: 5 RPM. Is that a joke?
I look at the stats you wrote for the Maus and IS-7. It says that my turret from the front has 210 mm armor while the IS-7 has 200 mm. Yet, in actual combat, due to the amazingly sloped design of the IS-7, it feels that my turret is 200000 mm less than the IS-7!
Why did you make the IS-7 superior to the Maus in every single way?
1- Slow as hell.
2- Arty Magnet.
3- Extremely slow turret traverse.
4- Massively under gunned. (This one is really ridiculous).
5- Extremely bad camo. (I can be seen from miles away while I can't see them).
6- Gun made out of paper. (Every single shot can and will damage if not disable your gun. Hell, I had a VK 3601 disable my gun once).
7- Lower Hull is extremely thin. (What's the point of a sloped front armor if they can just aim for my lower hull and penetrate all the time).
8- Rear mounted turret which is the most retarded and stupid idea I have ever seen in my life. It really is THAT bad.
9- Brakes. (I go downhill and I can't stop but at the bottom of it. What the hell, man?).
10- Massive armor with many weak spots and holes in it which makes the armor itself almost useless.
1- Extremely fast.
2- Amazing camo due to low profile. (I had an IS-7 disappear right infront of me. He was literally 30 meters away).
3- Amazing Gun.
4- AMAZING armor all around which is sloped perfectly. You can shoot at IS-7 from the front all you want and nothing.
I truely regret wasting my time grinding all the way up to the Maus. Maus was such a disappointment that I can't really find the words to describe it.
Maus needs a better gun than that silly toy you have given us. You need to fix the gun mantel because it is annoying. I basically have to play with a damaged gun or a dead gunner 90% of all my battles.
So, after 1740 battles here is my feedback:
1- Fix your spotting system. That thing is really screwed up.
2- Fix your matchmaking system.
3- Stop favoring the soviet tanks. It really shows when you compare between the tanks.
4- Fix your disappearing shells. That is really annoying!
5- Fix your random FPS drops. It gets frustrating.
On a side note: T-54. This happened many times but I was playing my GW Panther and out of nowhere, I find myself rammed by a T-54 that appeared out of absolutely nowhere right at my side. What's up with that?
That's all I can think of for now... Flame on!
