We appreciate your efforts to bring relevance back to the German heavy tank line. The buffs to the Maus especially make it much more survivable in tank combat. Quite sadly though, you've failed.
Out of 11 games in the "new" tanks (Maus, 7002) on open maps, each and every one, in the end, I was killed by arty. While they are moderately acceptable fighting tank-on-tank, they are too slow and slab sided to deal with arty. I wish I could express my frustration with getting penned for 1120hp by a Obj261 over and over, or getting HE'd for 1700 by a T92, I find no sufficient way to do so.
All the changes you make trying to balance the game have been for naught because you insist in leaving arty in the game. Even in the slowest of tanks, its not lights, or Super Soviet Meds™, or huge TD's that ruin the game, it is arty. Its a broken mechanic that virtually everyone that plays the game actively dislikes, if not despises.
Stop messing with accuracy, shell travel times, and my beloved Grille 15, JUST NERF/DROP ARTY!!!!
My thanks for listening.
P.S. - Also, FU for those stupid HE guns on the Japanese heavies, and again for ruining the Grille 15.
