Continue the fair and justified removal of hard to balance vehicles from nations that arent germany.
Give russia a captured maus as a premium.
As the post title says, id like to see peoples opinions on the maus either being re-added or having gaijin equally and fairly remove all other hard to balance vehicles.
Its been years since they removed the maus for balance reasons and even went as far as to claim that because it was a prototype that its position in war thunder should be more like the e100. And scrubbed it from war thunders loading screens.
Yet no other vehicle has been removed for that reason and the maus is still missing.
There’s dozens of hard to balance vehicles in the game, and pretty much every single one has less historical value as the Maus, it was always a nonsensical argument, go delete the IS-7, Object 279, IS-3 etc from the game then.
Removing the Maus makes no sense, it’s not removed from the game, it doesn’t solve the balance issue… but clearly it’s being used as bait on the rod.
Should have just been put in a folder behind the Jagdtiger.
It literally comes back ever November during the anniversary.
Guess they need to boost the player numbers a bit… we can’t have the Maus in game because it’s so difficult to balance but lets offer it up the vehicle from time to time anyways because that makes sense.
The Tiger II 10.5 is a fake tank, so is the Panther II
The MAUS had a prototype built, it just wasn’t every going to be feasible in actual combat. The MAUS also is incredibly hard to balance since it’s a “WW2” vehicle yet its armor and firepower are ridiculous. Now that the game has modeled HEAT-FS and ATGMs it can be placed ~mid Cold War and find a nice home as a super heavy tank. It’s fine in its current state.
Guess what you can do with GE. And what people no doubt do whenever they get the oportunity to research the maus. Its essentially like buying a rare premium.
People wait an entire year after getting rank 5 germany to start researching the maus, that wait time causes a psychological shift in certain peoples minds to make them think they need to get it immediately.
It’s a market ploy that is actively abused by the developers through event vehicles
The MAUS is a returning FOMO vehicle which can be obtained by simply having a vehicle of the same rank and starting research, after research is started you can finish said research of the MAUS at any time.
The FOMO is there, it’s not “scummy” in my personal opinion considering it comes back for the anniversary and the MAUS itself is a toy not something you might feel required to obtain for the sake of your Germany grind.
