Ok. I need to get this game of my chest. I was doing well today, raising my WR up from 52.11% to 52.25%. I desperately wanted this to continue to maximize my WR obviously. I tapped “battle” and off I went to Castilla. Little did I know that this would be the most infuriating, [graphic language] game I have ever played in my life, regardless of game or sport. I started left in my KV-2 to suppress  the hill by the windmill. I even called out “left” on the chat. I stupidly assumed that someone at least would follow. Nope. Our other 6 tanks were engaged with four of theirs to the right by the center hill. I contemplated going back, but I didn’t want to give up the flank. Sure enough, the enemy team took advantage of the weak flank and rushed 2 tanks over the hill by the windmill. I managed to hold for probably a good minute, dealing 700 damage before I was overrun and disabled. Because the two tanks  were held up, we had steamrolled the rest of them and it was 5-2 us. I said “attack” on the chat. One tank rushed in and I got flustered. I typed, “attack together swarm them.” Still, only the one tank rushed in. Dead. 5-3. Two tanks think it would be brilliant not to attack, but to go right to the bridge closest to the windmill and flank rather than overwhelming the enemy by simply crossing the other bridge which was directly in front of them. Thus, taking their guns out of the game. One of our flankers, instead of.....flanking? Caps the base with a second to spare at 1:41. Fast forward and it’s 6-6 and the tank capping still has a second to spare with approximately 18 seconds to go. He caps it out. Whew! That was too close for me! Wait, what?? It says it was a DRAW??! Yep. From 5-2 and an EASY win to a draw which should’ve counted as a capture win. Unreal. I’m sorry for the rant, but I just had to vent a little bit. One second you are ecstatic that your WR is improving and you’re gonna get ANOTHER win, the next second you’re questioning your very existence on this Earth. Go ahead and share your own stories of moronic teams and crushing losses (or, like in my case, draws).

Yep yep and yep. Don’t even need to read it, I probably feel your pain. Just got to take it as the game it is and nothing more, and put it down when things get ugly. Better control you have in that, the less you’ll feel the need to vent. GL

 

Maybe we can have a rant thread started. Just a suggestion. Not sure if that’s a lot of difficulty for the mods or not. But that way we can vent there, and get a few laughs at someone else’s rant.

Good idea about a rant thread BlitzAssasin! Why not start right here?

Remember to look at the minimap early; in certain tanks its better to give up a flank if you can't hold them or relocate with flexibility. Being alive throughout the match has the benefit of maintaining influence throughout as well 

 

I digress.

 

These things happen. It's impossible to know how your team is thinking, or if they are even very experienced at all. I didn't know you could draw a game using the capture circle though.

I had an AMX 50b go solo to the flank and snipe all match in a ratings match tonight. Fun times.

Working as intended

I hit “Battle” when not in Platoon with one of my buddies. Things became considerably worse from that point on.

It’s tough holding a flank in a KV-2 solo. You have to have some support. But we’ve all had those moments of despair, watching our team disintegrate in front of us. That’s when you learn survival is so important and “if only” I would have done “xyz”.

I'm thoroughly pssed right now. My WR yesterday was 39% over 20 battles. I'm literally watching my team drop like flies instantly, even though my status was "very good" its still infuriating.

I would have finished yesterday at 60.1% if it weren't for my two tier x losses. :child:

Ive had two games in the last week that really stick in my craw.

I did 2000 dmg in the type 62.  Was in a real fight with the reds, and suddenly the game ended.  Four of my mates had done zero damage.

And then another game in the type 62 I tackled two reds in their spawn against my one.   Then attacked the rest of the reds from the rear.  Did 2850 damage, and a 43% player started telling both teams I had camped the entire game.

Playing Vines today I get my Borsig into a nice position hidden on high ground.  An IS-3 comes up from behind and pushes me out of that location where I quickly take an HE hit from an ISU-152 doing massive damage.  No reason for doing this, he just wanted my space.  I manage to get out of there despite taking a second hit doing huge damage.  I'm down to 150 or so hps and then proceed to doll out 3,000 damage, but we end up losing bad.  The IS-3 player was a 51%'er and was first out with doing barely 300 damage.  Typical.
