Looking for a super heavy that can block a lot of damage and is fun to grind/play. Which line would be better? currently on tier 6 for Type 5 and tier 5 for Maus

Depends, really.

 

Maus has more comfy grind as you need to get past the Type 4 when it comes to the Type 5. That thing needs overall probably more XP than any other tier 9 to get past (2x 60k xp guns, 25k xp tracks, 257k xp to type5...), and its also painful to grind through - if you dont use derp with full gold HE, its utter trash, and if you do so, its really expensive to grind through. And its really frustrating to play because the platform.

 

Maus is better at blocking damage than the Type 5, however the Type 5’s derp with gold HE is just really powerful (and disgusting, p2w, cancerous, bad fo the game, toxic...). 

 

You could always go for both, I dont see any reason not to.

The Maus line at least has interesting tanks on the various tiers. All the Japanese tanks are giant derpy boxes with weird armor layouts, while the Maus line gets:

 

- the glorious Pz 4H, an utter fun machine with the 105cm derp, and quite capable

- the powerful VK 30.01 P, which zips around the battlefield with best-in-tier alpha and great dpm and gets a decent turret to boot

- the Tiger P, which is... not all that great, but manageable. If you still happen to like it you can grind all kinds of tanks from that tank

- the VK 100P, the tier 8 juggernaut and one of the strongest tier 8s at the moment, one of the few that is on eye level with the Defender

- the Mäuschen, which can soak up damage like no other tier 9, drive pushes and already sports a tier 10 gun

I'd take Maus, easier grind... I'm still at tier 8 but it's OK to grind anyway. Only problem for me was Tiger P, which has horrid dpm and speed for the lame armor it gets.

Well, I despise the VK10001P, altough I do quite well in it. I just hate slow tanks and tanks with bad/not so good gun handling. The Type 5 line however has the same slow tanks and worse gun handling, so I will not grind that. Only grinding the MAUS for CWs...

Maus in a 1 vs 1 against a Type 5 will win every time, just one reason why I went for a Maus.  Maus is just better in every way apart from it's HE (or BS premium HE).  Still, just fire APCR and watch things melt anyway.

 

Edited to add:  As others have said the grind for the Maus is a joke.  The only weak tank is the Tiger P.  The VK100p is very Op for its tier and Mauschen felt like playing the game on easy mode too.
