I had a chuckle this afternoon. A 15,000 game 45%er was whinging about how crap the team was.

 

We lost but I managed to do almost 3000 points of damage, topping the damage.

 

I couldn't help myself and sent him a PM post match:

 

jumphonner (4:28:51 PM) lol....a 45%er whinges about the specials....that made my day
XXXXXXX (4:29:20 PM) yeah well u didnt do shit did u?
jumphonner (4:29:37 PM) nah....only did most damage special
XXXXXXX (4:30:00 PM) wow yes u r very special .. i hear u have a small baby [edited] too lol

[edited] WR in freefall. I thought the x5 and weekend was over, but still getting those teams?

 

This Strv 74 though...

 

5 games in that thing and already seriously disliking it.

 

Like here, on Karelia:

1 pen all game. Granted I didn't fire much, but given our team lemming rushed, and apparently so did the enemy team.

 

So, what did I learn about this tank? Not only does it look goofy, but it handles goofy too. The top gun is mounted on this thing, and yet I can't pen a Crom B or ELC bis? Interesting. 4 shots on an O-I all missed, because you know those things are really small, and move fast, making them hard to hit. Seriously though, bounced two shots off an ELC in a row...

 

Something else I learned that game: some people just should not ever play scouts, like the guy blotted out in the score card, the guy at A3:

He's not moving, that's his final position. He didn't last long there; got spotted by a Crom B and wiped out.

 

Where was that Crom B?

 

Right here:

My spot. How does an ELC bis not see... oh nevermind. These things don't surprise me any more.

 

Another lesson I learned about the Strv 74: it's VERY easy to tip. In just 5 games I've done it twice. So... don't turn while going downhill, and be careful of bumps while driving at speed.

It's another 37 [edited] percent session. At this rate I'm not far off. Teams just giving up map positions so quickly, it's just crazy. Like earlier we had a game on Overlord. 5 players 0 damage, only my toon mate and I were mid, TDs were off on lifeguard duty, and the west flank was completely exposed. That was an auto lose. Didn't help that I flipped my tank as well while trying to reposition.

That's one of the elements of mid tier worth noting - it's good for learning how to carry as there are usually at least 5 clueless players per team, but not ideal for learning more basic team play for the same reason. My guess is wg's new player 'here have a free tier 6' made the mid tiers even worse.

Yep, agree its the place to get a good grounding on not ever giving up.

 

Been experimenting with an account I use for dealing with the consequences of over zealous battle buddy resetting and there have been some epic recoveries. Down by 6 tanks and come back to win it. Its teaching me some mid-game patience.

 

Loving the awesome ness of 2.2k dpm at tier 5 in the T34. It is seriously "engage mini-gun and vaporise". 

 

And the new object of my affection the T34-85M.

I still don't quite understand the mid tier dpm particularly in the meds like the 3485m compared to the upper tiers. But I guess that lends itself to less thinking more shooting which probably appeals to an audience wg may want.

Yeah - 'mid tiers' have 5 clueless. Shout out to the team i just had where 4 of our tier 10s just made 2k between them.

Are those images from the game your team lemming rushed? If so, how is that a lemming rush?

Isn't that what it's called when most of your team goes one way? AMX in mid ended up going east as well, AT8 also repositioned east (I wouldn't say rushed east, but that's where he went in the end), VK 30.01 never actually moved from that spot. Basically the only ones who went west were the Churchil, JgPz IV and myself. 3 capped, and the only ones left alive east were an arty and the VK who never moved. Never encountered another enemy since the first ones from the start. So I know 12 of the enemy team went east. They had no one mid as I never got spotted moving down.

I mean, games like this just make my brain hurt.

http://wotreplays.eu/site/4868154#empire_s_border-sir_direkin-strv_74

 

6th game in that tank (and I didn't flip it), 1st game in the session. We could actually have won this, but I'd blame the Skoda T25 for running off when the enemy were capping. He ran off to go and cap the enemy base, meanwhile I was on the other side of the map and had to go back to our cap to reset. 2 non-damaging shots were hugely problematic as it meant I couldn't buy enough time for our FV201 and KV-2, both of whom were also on the other side of the map, to come back and help reset. Had just the one spotted on cap at the time, and neither our arty or TD could hit it. Skoda T25 simply [edited] ran off. I guess he wants to maintain that 43% WR at 10,700 games. 

 

And the only person to fire gold at me was a top tier 48%er. I know why he needs it.

 

 

After that, played the T25/5. 0-15 one game, 1-15 the next. Oh boy...

STORY TIME>

I had an altercation with a T30 about 2 hours ago, the game started and in my AMX 51 I decided to go help the mediums so I stopped and turned 90 degrees and noticed the T30 was going to ram me so I stopped moving and reversed a little bit and stopped dead still as to let the T30 pass.

The T30 proceeded to drive into me and pushed me up against a wall, he thought I was driving forward.... After about 30 seconds of typing in chat... "I'm not doing anything T30, go around" I lost my temper and decided this guy was looking for a fight so I gave him one, I shot him in the front, damaging his engine.... bad form from me I know but I digress.

The T30 then decided to fire at me 2 times, bouncing both shots. Once the altercation and his realisation that I wasn't driving forward "AT ALL" he fired at me a third time after we had distance between us and he could see my tanks rear and the shot penetrated.

I think I shouldnt of fired at him but to be honest it was his stupidity that infuriated me. Not an excuse just the case. The above is all that came of this, after he shot me and penetrated we simple did our own thing on the separate flanks.

Ya, the 57mm is absolute insanity for a T5 gun; it's a goddamned laser-guided autocannon. There's a reason I keep the T-34 as my one T5 MT.

I don't think auto-ban's 3 shot rule includes nothing shots such as completely bouncing off of my tank.

I am quite certain auto-ban requires 3 critical, absorbed(module absorbing must be damaged) or damaging shots to activate.

So in this case the T30's first two shots completely bounced off of me and do no harm so don't count.

TFW both your tier 10 TDs get their only damage from being rammed. And your other 3 tier 10s get 3 damaging shots between them. Gud 10s are gud.
