Just grinding my stock tanks in this mode, currently as i am typing this, 2 wins to 11 loses. I wouldnt care as much if i had an infinite amount of crew exp booster, but i dont, and it ends up being wasted on the loses. Meh I can never win more than half my games in mad games or realistic anyways

Grab a toon mate. Makes burning games infinitely easier. Especially if one is healing focused and one is farming focused.

It is hit or miss, team wise for whatever reason.

Past few days it was enjoyable.

At lunch I lost six in a row.

Tea time I lost ten in a row.

 

MM sucks when it conspires against you.

The average player is a clueless moron. I got multiple messages today from players in the event saying "You're the reason we lost *****" yet I was against a Smasher & T34, etc. at the end, with 1 hitpoint remaining.. and yet I did 4K damage with 4 kills and they did 426 damage with zero kills. But I'm the reason we lost?!? lol!!

Do as others have said and 'toon up with a good player. 

 

Note: I will be turning off chat (except from friends) until this event is over.

  That’s what I did for Miles last night. I ran a Chinese TD behind his Anihilator for 5 games. He played up front and I played within an easy range shot of him like a timid assault gun. He had 2 pretty good games that way when we were bottom tier. I wasn’t looking to shoot reds unless the opportunity presented itself so I found it a little boring. The only thing I didn’t do was change my ammo load out, it would have helped a lot if I’d have dumped the APCR for HE. I didn’t care enough to change my load out. Even carrying only 5 HE rounds I pulled down +4K healing several times, I didn’t just heal him. 25-26 shots with only a couple going at the the reds. It was fun to see him have fun.

Been grinding the Japanese line which is GOD AWFUL.

 

I just find a good player and heal them 90% of the time.

 

It’s boring but they are some of the worst tanks I’ve played in a long time, better to use my lives by healing.

Watched an at15 & wz112 toon absolutely tear up a map(on green thankfully)

 

At15 said they had two shells left by the end... Stuck with healing the wz and cleaning up one-shots. 8 kills and like 2 k damage [edited]... WZ had like 6k damage and 3 kills

Sad part is I had a Sheridan on green hit me ‘too heal me’ In regular games this morning...

   Yup solid 42%’er with 325 avg dmg.  He did nothing all game other than shoot me and then yolo into a red Leo, T57 and AMX 50B - he lasted about 5 seconds once he left cover.

I honestly believe a majority of players don’t know or care about the rules of the game. Too many times I’ve looked at replays and stats and come to the conclusion that half my team had no idea what to do. I’ve given up and just grinding some tanks and clearing missions. It’s not worth getting worked up or care about winning a match anymore.

Haven't played today yet but so far I'm 21 wins 18 losses. 71 kills 25 Deaths. 

 

I think only once did I finish a battle without being killed at all. Yamato map with Smasher.

 

Best game damage-wise:

Chieftain Mk 6: 3574 with 4 kills, win.

Smasher 3319 with 4 kills, win.

 

Most kills in a battle, 5 twice with Smasher.

 

I like this mode only because I'm grinding kills for the Gold Box.

 

16,000 Gold for 20.00 is what I'll finish with, nice deal.

Some rando thoughts:

 

- Don't bother healing low hp tanks. It's unlikely the team can get them healthier than one-shot

- If you are low on hp, revert to primarily healing

- When you respawn in an auto-loader or a long-reload, take advantage of your fully loaded gun to heal some teammates (since you probably can reload before an opportunity to shoot reds is present)

- Caps


Camo net is for cowards.

Today at Dynasty Pearl i had a flat panzer follow my Smasher around, shooting me constantly.  I died seconds after he did, then follow me again from spawn :)

 

We won, i was second in damage with 4 kills. Both survived. He did 0 damage but probably had a ton of refresh damage points

I had a battle with 66 Damage & 2 kills :)

 

Copperfield. Heavy side.

Helped keep red team at bay, and guessing for when I was going to come onto the plateau, while continuously healing my platoon mate who was on the plateau, I just kept healing him, looking and poking and hitting any red flies that flanked behind.

  A win is a win but It’s definitely different when you take on the healer role, win and then look at the results screen to see your name at or near the bottom. I always wonder if anyone thinks I helped at all.

my experience, really. It’s total chaos, I’m driving 3 stock tanks in tier 7-8-9  with 75 crew,

at first I was trying hard, and I was constantly below 20% winrate. 

I switched gears and decided to just let things go where they want to 

and by staying at spawn brushing my teeth I always manage to get in my team’s top 3 per damage, and I didn’t win less. 

once, 4 on my team managed zero  after 2 lives, and none of them ever recharged me.

omst games though we just lose because reds get 3-4 bases 

 

it’s horrible.

 

i come to understand after a few more days, that some op tanks become way more op, while everything else is dragging the team towards the bottom.
