Because of this patch? Why do people think this is going to break the Maus, it's just going to make it so you can't take that 1 extra shell, it won't change it that drastically.

because they where on the verge of uselessness. something that slow and big has to be able to take an extra hit. Now that it cant, there is no need for a mass use of them.  Is7/t30 well now undoubly be in higher use in CW.

Yeah because on city maps the Maus is just pathetic.

Im as bummed as anybody about the HP nerf but its not going to "break" the Maus.. The Maus is still going to have that unique roll on the battlefiled as a rolling bunker that no other tank in this game can come close to filling.

Had maus (300+ Battles) sold maus slow lumbering building that has a turret a snail can out pace, prime arty magnet.

It needs something postive to happen too it if your gonna use it in anything but company battles and clan wars in a pub match your dead pretty quick or left all by yourself if your team doesnt support you.

Same could be said about the T30 though, and somewhat the IS-7.

Tell me about it..  I spent plenty of money converting experience to finally acquire the Maus.  If they nerf it, it just won't be the same tank I was grinding towards.  That ain't really fair to me at all.  

I am sad :( also frustrated.

I just got my maus 2 weeks ago... i know exactly how you feel.... :(

Maus was a good compensation after the worst tier 9 tank in the game with its retarded rear mounted turret, but I guess it is not anymore. Thank you devs!

Why I did not play russian tanks? I could get tier up on my IS4 and another tier 9 tank as a compensation for making my IS4 better!

Playing mostly Pub games I can not understand the reasoning behind shedding the 400 HP off the Maus. It is now such an easy kill the 6 I have faced since 6.6 have not made it half way across the field. Arty can kill them in 2 shots and I got 4 shots into one with my Tiger II and took him to 38% wow never got them below half before with out serious help. This was the one tank that could take on an IS-4 and have a 50/50 chance of winning as well as the T-30 that seems to be gone. Still do not see the value of such a drastic move 200 HP would have been reasonable 400HP suggest a different motive.

It's simple...

Pre-patch:  "Should we take more Maus', IS-7s, or T30s to this battle?"

Post-patch: "Do we need any Maus', Object 704s, or T-54s for this battle?"

A maus plain and simple can't run alone . When you have three maus's running together in a platoon or a tank company, thay can be a thing to behold , or for that matter a huge pain in the ass:)

All i can say it's really hard to stop one of them at times... Thats why you run more than one pushing a spot .

Playing public battles in a maus can be tough but a well planed strike with more than one maus can be hard to defeat.

Considering you have a 42% win ratio, every tank that you will ever play will suck because of you.

Bought my Maus a few weeks ago, its my best tank so far. Plenty of kills and plenty of damage. Yes it lost 400HP but as has been said again and again, and ......... again; it was GIVEN 400HP extra because it had a glitch in its armour and now that the glitch is repaired (or so I hear, I didn't notice it pre patch) it has had the extra HP removed.
