EDIT: I thought they meant the LFP... If they mean the actual underside of the Maus, then maybe it's fine. But if ares354 is correct and the Maus had 80 mm thick armor there, I think they should use 80 mm for the ingame Maus aswell.

"We will also fix the thickness of the armor of the hull bottom from 250 mm to 50 mm."

 

What does it mean? The floor of the tank?

In which case it would be fun shooting beneath the tank with a derp :)

"What will be changed? The Maus will retain its core quality of being an armored fortress, despite the fact that its firepower and amount of hit points will be decreased. We will also fix the thickness of the armor of the hull bottom from 250 mm to 50 mm."

 

The bottom part under the tank between tracks. However, now all that Type 4, Type 5 Heavy players will have to do is shoot under the lower frontal plate of Maus to cause even greater damage then they do now when shooting at the turret and all the damage goes to the engine compartment.

tbf, the nerfs to HP and dpm should bring it in line, it will stil be very strong but not as gamebreakingly so.

DPM will now be inbetween buffed and nerfed state, it will still have the armor buff but not the extra HP.

All in all, seems like a good nerf. Not too much, not too little.

Nerfing the DPM and HP doesn't mean much when you can't be killed anyway. Just means you'll spend longer dinging shots and killing the other guy (If he's not spamming premium ammo, of course). Also makes it easier to get that damaged bounced compared to total HP achievement thing.

Cant be killed? The only armor buff it got was the turret armor to 260mm.

If they change it to 50 then it becomes a viable target for HE to splash if it was 80 then not so much as few if any tanks have 80+ pen with HE

Unfortunately it's only the underside of the vehicle, not the LFP :(

This will affect arty splash, though?

If so, I hope the Maus drivers really feel the pain of driving a slow colossus. ;)

Which stopped it from being able to get penned by standard ammo and removing a weakspot, right? And if I'm right, they also buffed the side armour and made it so you can't track and do damage to a Maus anymore.

Hopefully getting rid of all that 250mm armour will make it lighter and get the Maus back up to it's historical top speed which was 60m.p.h., no honestly, I wouldn't lie to you, if WG want proof I have it somewhere.
