Finding actual Maus players, the ones who know how to angle properly and knows its tricks, are getting pretty hard to find in the game. There is a reason to this and its that the Maus might be lacking in comparison to the other heavy tanks at its tier. In  comparison, it is significantly lower in DPM and struggles on the field. As a Maus player myself, the gun on the tank is SOMEWHAT DECENT. I know how to hit my penetrations in it and it can come out to an avg of 2k-3k dmg a game. The only thing it needs is maybe an increase in RoF. Anyone who has made the decision between Maus and E-100 knows that you are sacrificing the gun for the amazing armor, but the armor  seems to be lacking a slight bit. Even with proper angling, your turret cheeks can't get out of the way in time without exposing the turret side. Regardless most times when you are fighting other heavies and you know how to compensate its 2 common weak spots, (Lower plate and cheeks), which the entire line up to it should have taught you how to do that. In my opinion, and due to the fact of its usage rate, it needs a SMALL improvement to its armor and dpm to just keep up with the other heavies at its tier.

Nah man the maus is better now then it ever was with the med nerfs and pramo changes. You have to remember that you're not there to deal the damage but to take it instead. It doesn't matter if ur cheeks are weak if u angle to a building or are using auto ricochet angles. Really the only problem the maus has are high HEAT pen tanks like the is-4 and t110E5 cuz u can't really do much with ur turret against those tanks.

It's fine where it is. The Maus is not a damage dealer, its primarily for blocking damage and assisting the team. It sounds weird, but you don't actually have to be constantly looking for a shot every time your gun is loaded. It's kind of like passive spotting, in that your role is first for the team, then next for your damage stats. 

You do know how to angle the armor, right? Get the hull about 15 degrees to either side, and the turret an additional 30 or so to the same side. It will be stupidly hard to pen you if your lower plate is hidden. When the enemy fires, then go for the shot. There's literally no point in getting a Maus, sidescraping in it, and not angling the turret as well, otherwise people will just aim for the cheeks.

I think 5.5 was good for the game - But I also want my Kenny OP nerfed. 
Sorry I haven’t aced the Smasher yet - So I’m still ruining tier 6-8

This. You would had a bad time if we were before the nerfed mediums. Every one of them doing an average of 270 pen. I recommend you to see on an armor inspector the maus to learn how to angle. It’s turret cheeks are almost invincible when you angle at about 45 degrees. Source: E100 player, we have to work with less armor than the Maus so we must learn to what extent angle our armor and to what extent we are over angling. The maus is fine the way it is now. Previously it was simply an exp pinata.

It's still great to see a Maus though these days, as its mostly just a damage barn waiting to be farmed if you're a decent player.

It has the highest average win rate of any tier X tech tree tank.

Has anyone heard any more of the rumor that they will remove the Maus from the tech tree soon? or is it just a rumor?

A good driver in a Maus is just a beast. They can just push on you and there's not much you can do to stop that huge chunk of metal.

Maus was unfortunately on my sell-to list.

Did provide me pleasure for couple of games but not everlasting joy.

Tank is good as is. 

Some of us play blitz for some fast pace action ... And no maus can give that

Its mostly fine but IMO it should get an upper hull armor buff. Its absurd 370 pen heat can now pen the maus upper hull.
