I found this video on Ru forum. The guy who recorded it is one of the best (if not the best) players in Blitz - c_beptyxu_b_yxo. His stats are 3400 avg dmg overall, over 4000 avg dmg in some tier 10s.

Lessons learned:

  • SPAM GOLD!!! Even if you shoot only premium ammo in IS-7, you will still get credits in half of the cases
  • Watch minimap, predict next moves of enemies
  • Do not tunnel and only aim when almost reloaded
  • If you care about avg dmg, leave 50-100 hp enemies to your teammates and move on to someone with more hp

Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash. © George Patton

That man has no regard whatsoever for credit expenses, eh? I'd love to be able to play like that, but, well...

"you will still get credits in half of the cases" i'm a non-premium account pleb (at least right now, that is) and i can only hope to make 5k per win in a t110e5 if i use all my heat rounds (5).

I think unofficial WG policy is that tier 8 is last one that you can play with regular account and not be in the red on average. That is even worse for the tank lines added after IS-4 line - I just bought FV 215b (183) and there was not a single battle in which I earned more silver than spent.

He is better than anyone on NA server. In our sandbox only Raptor is close with 3448 avg dmg, but he has only 100 battles.

I would say it is just another reminder that being true unicum is not about pulling insane carries 1-vs-7 every time. Rather it is about taking the most efficient and wise action in every moment of the battle, predicting what enemies and teammates would do 2 steps ahead and not making stupid mistakes :)

Lol. 

 

APCR> Skill

 

Not that this guy nor any other unicums don't have skill, but huge damage games which us normal proletarians rarely achieve -yet are regular for them- are easy when EVERY SHOT PENS. They will make excuses as to why their entire load out is APCR/HEAT, but they don't need to. It's in the game for a reason. If you are successful enough to pay for it, then do so; and on and on will your success continue. 

 

Look, unicums -or the rest of us who do the same- just admit that you're a prammo addict without prammo this game would be much different.

I played couple of weeks on Ru server and gameplay is a bit different there. Teams are more organized than on NA server, probably because a lot more people have PC experience. I'd say less often people split or wander around the map uselessly, so teamwork is better. However, lot more often people do "bush kemp", especially on TDs, probably because on PC it is a legit tactics. It is hard to say how it adds up. I am really curious how top players of NA server compare to top players of RU server :)

I do not think that your argument is valid. There are tanks in this game that do not have high-pen premium ammo: FV4202, IS-6, KV-5 (for last two APCR has less pen then regular AP on IS-3). However, unicums are as good in them as in other tanks. Besides, I bet nobody uses entire load of HEAT because it is useless against spaced armor.

In some tanks you just have to shoot premium ammo more often than regular ammo if you want to be effective in battles: T-54, E100, IS-6. For the rest, premium ammo gives only marginal advantage. I bet that even without it same people would be top players. A lot more depends on careful planning and situation awareness than on penetrating every shot.

I am more than proud to embrace the gold. The thing is, I'm not wasteful, and I don't play many tanks where APCR is gold. For example, I wouldn't waste an APCR round on a broadsided Cent 1, and in most of my tanks, as much as I would love to run a 100% HEAT loadout, it isn't practical or smart. Since HEAT suffers from the same normalization as an HE round it would and could be deadly when facing tanks with spaced armor. I've made the mistake of spamming too much gold, and it was both deadly and costly.

I'm not trying to downplay this guy or claim I'm better (because I'm probably not), but honestly it wasn't anything super extraordinary. I've seen how "the best" of NA play, and frankly, our best guys play just as well as him, if not better. There were times in the vid where he made some pretty unnecessarily aggressive plays, like letting himself get surrounded in that Desert Sands match when he KNEW there would be enemies everywhere if he chased after that ST-I. Did it work out, yes, but only because he got quite a few bounces, and it isn't what I would've done if I were in his place.

 

No doubt he's a phenomenal player; averaging 4k is probably helped by spamming gold but we all know gold doesn't turn a 40%er into an 80%er. Nonetheless, for somebody with jaw-dropping stats like that, he's really not THAT much different from the ultra unicums we have in NA.

Yeah that's exactly what I noticed, he's the regular cookie cutter ultra unicum (I would say we have about 20 here in NA), he knows exactly what to do and won't go out and do something extremely stupid, but at the same time he did over extend himself a bit more than I would've expected and some parts he could've done a few things different. But overall he has extremely good fundamental play (which can be boring to watch) but it wins games, and it wins A LOT of games. I've found that when I can play with some of our ultra unicums, I can do some extremely long win streaks, survival streaks, and even streaks where I don't make one mistake for 20-30 games. It seems boring but I've found it to be very mentally draining trying to think 10 steps ahead of the enemy. That's why I just shut off my brain most of the time and play as a noob.

If the only thing keeping you away from spamming gold that you are afraid to lose credits, then you are doing it wrong.....

no actually, you're doing it completely right. for apcr, that IS the only thing that would keep a logical person from loading full gold.

I prefer to look not at how extraordinary the gameplay was, and more on how well did he play his IS7 and what techinques? Did he angle, sidescrape, hulldown? Did he wiggle at all? Most importantly, what spots does he use  or prefer to shoot on other tanks and how many mistakes did he make during the game? 

 

I for one love the fact that he shoots APCR. You play tier x to win, period.
