Playing on a x5 day? That's your problem right there...

LT-playing masochist. It's too much fun to be a mosquito.

x5 and a weekend. Double trouble. Just trying to grind through as many tanks as possible with those mega exp missions (already elited the Jagdpanther and SU-100 with those). Those exp missions probably attract a lot of crap too. Don't you need to come in top 8 for those though? A lot of these players are never going to get a single completion with the way they play.

Not a rage, just a bit disappointed.

 

HT-12.2... one of those missions that depends entirely on luck, i.e. bounce twice your hitpoints in potential damage for primary requirements, survive and win for honours.

Completed the primary conditions, but unfortunately of the two LTs we had, the decent player in the LT-432 got caught out early. That was quite a blow to our chances, because the other LT was a 44% shitter in a AMX 13 75 who basically did nothing for the first half of the game, and despite that we were still managing to stay even in kills thanks to most of our mediums (bar one) who did a good job spotting the field. The last half of the game the 13 75 threw his tank away, and the game, from full health chasing a mere 438 damage. If only it was the other way around.

 

On a lighter note, this replay here presents an interesting new strategy from the enemy.

Brits are great at those missions.

Caernarvon especially with that upgraded turret, yeah, I can imagine. Only 4k exp away from unlocking that tank. Mega exp missions FTW!

Super ultra red rage right now. So extremely on tilt that I'm actually lightheaded, burning with rage, and have a need to destroy everything in reach. All I'm trying to do is to grind the last 24k exp I need on the Fail Vehicle 207 so I can be done with it once and for all. Sounds like a simple task, right? Mega exp missions + boosters should make things go pretty quick? Nope. Games were so bad I gained only 4k exp in the first hour. The bulk of the exp was from just two games in the second hour, and that was right before a rapid succession of steamrolls making the ending loss streak. 5 games in the first hour for 4k, 7 games in the second hour, 2 of which were decent lengthly games, so just how fast were those other 5 games in the second hour?

 

 

[edited] [edited] teams, [edited] shit maps, god [edited] atrocious [edited] RNG. I mean look at this as an example:

 

 

It was actually 12 games, not 11. I just Alt-F4'ed out on the last loss. Actually it wasn't a loss. It as a [edited] annihilation. 10 out of those 12 games were [edited] steamrolls. Most of those were along the lines of 0-6 minimum before the first kill. I've had loss streaks before, but this really wound me up so [edited] bad, and it had a lot to do with all of those steamrolls, one after the other. I'm sure the horrendous RNG (multiple shots at maximum dispersion every game) had a lot to do with it as well. The aim circle is supposed to be 2σ? Did someone get the bell curve upside down or something? Teams just [edited] collapsing over and over, so [edited] fast. OMG, I just can't believe these people. I mean how? How?! How do these people manage to function in the real world if they're so demonstrably [edited] [edited]? They're probably so [edited] incapable of doing anything on their own they need help with feeding; get more food on their faces than in their mouths otherwise.

 

So after several absolutely atrocious games, I get Himmelsdorf. What a joy. One of the best maps for arty. At least one would think so from this result:

Considering my shallow shell trajectory and the limited angles I have to work with, if the FV207 is up there for damage/exp in Himmelsdorf of all places, then there's something VERY wrong. Especially considering how we had no map control.

 

How about Overlord?

Forget it. In fact just forget everything. Just not allowed to win. Not going to win with these teams. Holy [edited] shit!

 

Here's a random selection of the shit I got teamed up with from those 12 games; there are of course a LOT more. The last 5 were all from the last game.

 

Spoiler

These were from tier VIII-X games, obviously. Absolutely no chance of winning. And some of them have such low play counts they should really not be playing tier VIII at all. What the [edited] is going on?

Getting games with such garbage teams that camp in the most [edited] ridiculous places, lemming rush at a crazy slow speed, and generally completely [edited] useless. Getting put in teams where the top tiers are in their low 40s for win rate (which is becoming really [edited] standard), and pitting that against the same [edited] unicum player in a broken EBR 90. Holy shit! Why am I seeing so many people with low 40% WRs so much more frequently now? And this is at tier 8 tier 9.

 

"Oooh, there's a FV215b (183) sitting on the hill back there. Why don't we all keep poking in the same place and keep getting blasted in the face like the unthinking bots we are?".

*sigh*

 

So I played randoms for the first time in 2 months. My plan for today was to get the x2 on the P43.bis then move the crew on to the ter to start the grind on that.

 

Here's my first game:

Widepark. Widepark is my #1 most hated map, because it is just so [edited] awful. In the middle of the map having such a hard time hitting anything. Still make top exp...

 

2nd up: Minsk.

I know a lot of you hate it, but I don't mind it that much. Nevertheless we went 0-5 before our first kill. I was the 4th to die, and that was in the first few minutes of the battle, so sat out most of that match. 2nd highest for damage, 3rd for exp. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm............................

 

I don't know how we managed to lose with top notch team mates like this:

 

Third game. Highway. Will this be a win?

What do you think? We have people left alive on both teams.

 

 

 

 

Nope! We had 3 heavies near enemy cap. Only one went on cap, one decided to... I don't know... and the other (one of the KV-2s) decided to go back to base to reset. I was going back to base to reset. God that bis is slow. Still faster than a KV-2 though.

 

3 out of 3 for losses. Yeah, [edited] that. Just not worthwhile. The game met my expectations.

 

Well, let's focus on the positive. At least that's MT-12.2 complete with honours. Always nice to get those luck based missions out of the way.

Another positive, what would you have done differently?

 

How could you help get early kills which are obviously so important to winning?

 

Another positive, 3 games means nothing. Its really easy to have a string of wins/losses over such a tiny sample.

Yep, 3 losses in a row is nothing. That happens during normal gameplay anyway, but add extremely low expectations to that, and gameplay history of the last few months I know those 3 losses can easily turn into 10 before getting a win. Best just to quit before going full tilt.

 

Early damage in games. Let's see. Widepark, that [edited] [edited] map: I was slap bang in the middle of the map from the start, struggling to hit anything. There's plenty around to shoot at; I just have problems hitting them without throwing hitpoints away, especially since I can see several tanks all pre-aimed at my direction, including one of the KV-2s. Lots of spot damage though. Minsk: I died 3 mins in, so that was all early damage. What I should've done was run off, as our flank was outnumbered 7-3. The other flank outnumbered the enemy 12-8, and somehow still got squashed. I say "somehow", but I decided to watch these complete [edited], and yep, they just sat there out in the open literally waiting to get shot, because that's how average players play now. Highway game: good amount of early damage that allowed our flank to push hard. Somehow 3 of their tanks got past both of our flanks undetected, and that screwed us up. I found one of them, hence why only two of them ended on cap. We really should have won that one, but whatever. Low expectations.

Played 1 game. Bounce every [edited] shot fired (even into the side of a T20). Get penned by every [edited] shot I receive, and on top of that, I get a crewman killed with every shot as well.

 

[edited] off with this [edited] RNG [edited] bullshit. What a [edited] joke.
