I think that on t10 type 5 and Maus are too strong.

 

In my opinion superheavies take less skill because their gameplay is much more simple than TDs and MTs.

 

Superheavies can't do repositioning on the map, can't use camo/ bush stats, can't do flanking and are not punished so heavily from mistakes (more HP)

So exactly how are they "Too strong".

 

I suggest you to elaborate more, because what you listed are all pretty hard disadvantages that punish hard the category unless facing frontally into a corridor. :coin:

Unfortunately you are right.

 

I would love to get back some of the old maps like pearl river.

 

BEsides, it looks like everything is more flat than I remember.

Biased poll.

No wonder WG doesn't bother listening.

Neither the Maus or the Type 5 are overpowered, they don't kill more tanks than other tier X heavy's do, in fact they probably kill fewer. But what they can do is push and bully a position with their armour, and so distract the enemy and allow supporting heavy tanks to take advantage of the chaos. And any nob can see a Maus or Type 5 on its own is useless and an easy target. So don't criticise the Maus because it is teamplay that allows it to work, and that is a rare and valuable thing in Random battles.

If maus isnt OP then Defender is the worst tier 8.

Then play a Maus or s  Type 5.

Should be a mechanic that drops tank camo to 0 when shooting, unless it's a TD or arty to get rid of perma invis light tanks and camping heavies in backline.

Since they have no viable weakspots for regular AP(CR) ammo, yes they are overpowered.

 

WG will next patch add weakspots which are still not viable for regular ammo so tough luck for the rest of the player base unfortunately.

And this is why WG pushes changes like this. You don't see how both tanks are broken.

  1. Excellent gun handling, 3k+ DPM, 260mm frontally at worst, with angling it's impossible to pen with almost every tank (i won't mention poor souls in T8 tanks)
  2. Virtually no weak spots, flat armor (cry about HEAT), snaps you into IS-7 turret for 400-500 or E5 face for 570. 

So they are both broken and overpowered. I would assume that mouse needs some kind of buff (mobility mostly) but everything else is too damn much. Type4/5 is the cancer on tracks, no words about this weeb crap(and anime shafters).

And you use your not buffed tank and you bounce maus @ 400m. And most of tanks are with no camo when they shot especially house on wheels like Maus. Problem is, when you spot maus either you can't pen it or hit it becouse [edited]accuracy.

What kind of fake poll is that?

Heavies take no skill, right? A class which can't relocate once commited and must face a certain death, alone, when all the blue+ mediums flee in terror once the flank shows the first signs of fatigue...

Did I forget to talk about artillery? For how many years had heavy players to deal with arty humping your leg until the last of your crew is dead and your last module smoking?

 

Nothing is all white nor black dude.
