Hi all

just thought I'd write a small piece about the often forgotten Micro-Maus, and the changes I've found since 8.7.

This isn't a post about how it needs to be rebalanced, neither is it a whinge about how it's under powered - quite the opopposite.

I hadn't used it for a few months because I was fed up with being top tank in a pure tier 3 game and being unable to use the armour of the tank. Then last week as I took my tetrarch out for a run I saw a Micro-Maus on the other side - paired BELOW the tier 3's, and in amongst the tier 2's - this prompted some investigative work.

I took it out for 5 games and I found that in all 5 games there were 4-6 tier 3's per side, and the rest were tier 2's - and I was paired amongst them, below the tier 3's.

I didn't dominate, but I did get 17 kills in those 5 games, and found it to be even more enjoyable than I did when it was a troll tank. I was side-scraping, angling, and struggling to pen the more armoured tier 3's... Fantastic!

So, it would seem that my beloved Micro-Maus HAS been rebalanced, and I believe it is now better than ever to play - it isn't the stat padding tank it was, but it shouldn't be - it now feels like a Maus does to play, and that is the entire reason I bought this tank in the first place.

So, instead of the usual WG negrep that goes on in these forums... Have a +1 from me  :glasses:

Now that sounds interesting, need to try it myself.

I never played it when it was the big Troll, had a code but did not activate it. :)
Played it in 8.5 and 8.6 if you stayed away from the TDs it still was powerful.

Good topic ...I've been thinking for some time this old tank should get its old MM back .... now it would not be the beast it once was ...things like the T18 tectra
and others would pen with most shots ....I had the Micro when it was in its prime ....Oh the fun ,,, 10 11 kill games where not uncommon , with a few gold rounds to take out the enemy micro , !! me and my clan mate took 3 out together the only rage we had was steeling each others kills ...the joy !!

I believe the term you're looking for is 'kill secured"

Micro Maus is underpowered now. Agreed it was too good before, but a bit better gun or something in exchange for the giant MM nerf would be in order. It borders to bad/not-playable now
edit: What is wrong with people giving neg reb for presenting an opinion soberly. Its not like Im raving and howling...

It is quite a lot of fun against T7s through. Especially if the entire enemy team is using them :D

I don't get against T7's with it, I always end up being smallest player in tier 4-6 match, where it's completely useless..

Still a fun tank.. its not gotten worse, the games simply evolved around it is all and still performs when you are sensible
Plus its nice that I can use the crew from it in a pz C

The only thing I don't like about it.. is the fact you get to many tier 3 games and can no longer meet tier 1s. While the T18 can still do so without any penalty.

But regardless its still fun to play. Always fun when you get many T7 Cars on the enemy team.
