Hi guys, its quickybaby here time again for the Whack-A-Defender Brigade.

 

WG in their infinite wisdom has decided to begin selling the Defender again. You may remember the original Whack-A-Defender Brigade earlier this year.

http://forum.worldoftanks.asia/index.php?/topic/79078-whack-a-defender-brigade/page__fromsearch__1

 

While it may not be the most OP premium anymore, it is distinctive enough to be the first time the community had finally had enough over WG's constant expansion into powercreep and thus makes a good scapegoat for our rage.

 

Without further ado,

Its time to do it all again!

 

The steps are simple.

Step 1: Pick your Artillery. 

This step is fairly simple. You take your choice of what arty you feel like playing. 


Step 2: Load 100% premium HE and Food. (premium HE optional but recommended for maximum balancing)

This is also fairly simple. Loading normal HE just goes against using artillery. The point of artillery is to make someones life absolute hell. In this case, its a Defender on the enemy team. Premium HE will allow you to completely miss and still do some sort of damage and stun!

Food is self explanatory, why would you need a fire extinguisher when you have so little health anyway? You get a better reload, a better aiming time and better final accuracy with food. No brainer. 

 

Step 3: Press the "battle" button. 

Can't get into a game without it.

 

Step 4: Search team list for Defenders or 252Us. 

If there aren't any, oh dear. Guess that means you need to rebalance Obj 257s, Obj 268v4s or Godzilla heavies. 

 

Step 5: Find Defender or 252U and click it.

Fairly straight forward. Pick one, and focus him down until he is dead or until he retreats behind the base. Hell, even if he has retreated that far, if he is lit, click him anyway. 

 

Then repeat from step 3 if you want to play the same artillery. 

 

 

You may lose credits. This is fine, because its all for balancing the balancemobiles.

 

Spread the word of the Church of Whack-A-Defender. Recruit people to the cause.

Share your successes here.

For those that have not found out the joys of SPG, here is a rough breakdown on what to do: 

  1. Press 2 
  2. Target Defenders/252U 
  3. Target Japanese HTs
  4. Target German TDs
  5. Try and snapshot LT's 
  6. Generally clean up Premiums from the map
  7. Deny pesky and aggressive pushes 
  8. Remember, no camping 
  9. XVM may or may not be required

I'm all for rebalancing speeding LTs when there's no Defenders around.

I don't notice the term "enemy Defender" nor did he mention searching on the "enemy's team list". Do you? I say all Defenders are fair game.

too bad they sell defender but not lefh18b2!

and if only they allowed tier 3 diff match i could just buy lefh18b2 to punch defender from sky for eternity lol

fear defender? here's my pro tip: 1. buy foch b and wait for defender to come to zone like mud or open field 2. now hit it's track! he will use repair 3. hit the track again! he is very scared of you now! 4. shoot shoot shoot! 5. either defender dies or run away from you like coward 6. he will never ride defender again and pay to ride foch b next time 7. one day u see everyone is riding foch b lollllllllllllll

For shame, targeting people just because they drive a particular vehicle. Clearly total fog of war is required to put a stop to such reprehensible behaviour.

I would recommend against picking the FV207 unless you like the sound of failing to pen a Defender.

Yes. Those that have bought one must be reminded that their choice in buying OP tanks will mean that WG release more OP tanks, thus turning this game into pay2win.

Which it has more or less devolved into.

But you are using the team list to allow you to identify priority targets and take away their enjoyment of the game. How is that fair? Those players worked hard to buy those tanks

Buy an OP tank, prepare to be focused.

It’s a trade.
