Have any of your teammates from any battles just chase a weak tank and letting the other team capture the base?

 

I have one in oasis palms. My 3 teammates (i was dead) were two heavies and a med and two of them (tiger ii and vk 32.2) were chasing an M8 instead of defending the base as i told them to do while the 3rd one (T34) did listen but he didnt make it 'cus he was slow and did struggle on the terrain

I hate that. Weak tanks are less of a threat than more dangerous ones or even losing the battle. I agree with Jayhop, NOOBS!!!!

lI've seen it happen way too often where the last guy standing on my r team runs through a gauntlet of Fire in thier t32 with 400 health to kill that 100 health e8. They don't have a shot but theyLl run after just to get that kill

I actually use this tactic. When I'm low on Hp, I generally get a few people chasing me so I either pull them away from the flag or in line for one of my team mates to kill. I end of dying but we either get the win or two to three of them die in the process.

honorary death XD

 

Thats a big sacrifice though. Does it always work? Does your team always kill them? Maybe sometimes it could be the case that you could inflict further damage to the enemy by staying alive and playing peek a boo?

I go down fighting don't get me wrong. However, when I see the pack coming I try to manoeuvre them into the line of fire. You would be shocked how tunnelled people become at the thought of a kill and lose all situational awareness.

I understand that, but my question is does your team always support u when doing this. Do they see a pack of tanks chasing you and ambush them, or do they crawl back and hide? I found myself luring out enemies often in my t-34s but a lot of the time my team would be reluctant to take the shot

You are absolutely right. I think the main problem is that way too many people think kills are what matter, so they get all frothy at the prospect of getting one and forget everything else. I've seen some real idiots do stupid game-losing things, and when you tell them about it, they shoot back with "at least I got the kill!"


 

Yeah, thanks, and lost the game in the process, netting you way less XP (which is what REALLY matters) and dropping your win ratio.

I used that tactic as the weaker tank to seal in a win recently. We had the base, Blackgoldville about 85 on the ticker.  I'm in M3 Light, of course a T1 heavy rolls up to reset the timer.  Knowing my 37mm gun was as inadequate as (insert locker room joke here), I decided to distract him out of desperation.  I did the typical COD move that faster tanks use to circle and shoot the larger tanks.  That sucker rotated his turret and tried to shoot me the whole time until time ran out!!!  WE WIN!!!

Win rate: lower than yours. Clan: I can't remember.  avg damage: who cares , Tier X's: HuntingpanzerE100, Patron48proof, FVagpanzer4202,TangoVI-II, ChryslerE5.

Win rate in life: Better everyday

Sounds like 99.99% of t20's, always hide don't do much, then they see someone with 200 or lower health & they suddenly take their brave pills & charge
