Not super-duper, but lights and I had some close-to-great games. Let's see if my first use of imagr is successful - tier 3 and 5 toons.

Nice games Mat ! 

Write the tiers and total damage for each on the post. It makes it easier for Stealth.......he likes easy !

Kudos to piano for reminding me about the team screen; added.  And yes, I was deliberately shooting rocks etc with HEAT while also trying to be useful.  It's a very fine line to tread.

In a Gekko sense, since 145 gold converts to 58000 silver, does this then total to 227,760?  Or are we not allowing novel accounting methods like some unimaginative Marxist-Socialist commoner?

Hmmmm.... that's quite the haul! You might have the Gekko locked up... without having to stretch to convert gold to credits, then crew xp gained to credits... then selling your tank for credits, etc lol.

 

But nice games... slow tanks on Supremacy = big credit hauls, eh? Might have to turn that mode back on...

It's really more a function of the 100k cr missions hit in each game, but yeah... There's some small boost to earnings of you cap

Neither of these is currently top, but I'm hoping some of the leaders will win something else...

 

Tier 5 low-tier platoon (with Archie): 1799 .  How hard is it to get a low tier battle these days?

 

Tier 6 damage fest: 3047

 

This one is I think only my second 3K damage game; the first was in the T49 when red had a TOG.  This one would have been glorious had I actually won it, but my instincts just aren't right yet; I hesitated for a moment before charging and couldn't quite close the distance and get by the KV-2 before he reloaded :(.

I am at the in-laws trying to use my phone as a hot spot, and having issues.

I will upload the screen shots later today, when I am at home on some decent wifi.

Just wanted to get these in before the deadline passed.  I guess the deadline is Monday. Oh well.

 

Tier 4  --  2250 total damage

Humble Rumble and Lights Out (Humble did all the heavy lifting)

 

Tier 5 --  2414 total damage

Eco_81 and Lights Out

 

Tier 5 -- 2444 total damge

Furicle and Lights Out

 

*Posting multiple entries just because*

 

All 3 games we were low tier.

Hopefully these will be allowed. I will edit this post later and include the links to the screen shots.

 

 

Edit- Here is the link to the screenshots. Apparently Verizon has better coverage in southern Minnesota than AT&T.

Tier 8 epiciosity (FWIW)

 

May well not be epic enough.... but I was sure happy to get this to finally happen:

My Borsuck ace in a tank in which I have not been very good.  The truly epic and unreproduceable events include acquiring a "sniper" medal with that ridiculously trollish 15cm gun... as well as bouncing a shot from an Obj. 704 :amazed:

This is for the "Bring a Friend" contest.

 

Battle results here.  This was a battle featuring me and the spud-jr, AKA Footkick7272

 

He got a Type 62 so of course he wants to platoon constantly in it.  I personally detest the possibility of getting into tier 8 hell, but for the sake of family one must suffer :D...  Anyway, this one turned out to be a tier 6/7 battle on Mirage, so all was well.

 

Or at least I thought it was going to be well, except then Mr. Fast Fingers suddenly types "Waterfall".  When I ask why, he says that that side is better.  He explains that he doesn't mean that the people should actually go to the waterfall, just to that side.  I, knowing the player base, am sure that the rest of the team will all line up single-file and proceed under the waterfall to get blasted by the IS, the SU-100M1, and the Nashorn.

 

Fortunately, the player base is not entirely up on the reading skills.  The KV-2 did the waterfall thing.  Four of the team went left of the central hill.  I went up the hill, and the kid hung back around our side of the pool behind some of the hard-cover buildings.  Our certain-to-be-disaster deployment turns out to be brilliant strategy when all the reds come in a lump to their side of the hill, so we basically have them surrounded on three sides.  The enemy VK 28.01 and Cromwell decided that they should make like mountain goats and try to climb the hill from the beach side.  Whenever they would pop up, I'd shoot them in the face to tell them that it was my hill and that they weren't welcome.  The Cromwell is stubborn and repeats that a couple of times...  Meanwhile, the VK decides he'd have more luck trying to go mano-a-mano with our KV-2.  He didn't.  There's a big brawl going on around my hill, and I'm poking out from the rocks and shooting whoever looks like they'd like a helping of AP.  Footkick polishes off one of the reds.  The Nashorn is down at the foot of my hill on the beach side and not too healthy, so I decide to drop 30 tons of Soviet steel on him.  Meanwhile, spud-jr has decided that Type 62's can take on IS's with no issue, so he charges.  As I'm heading to help, I hear a comment something like "Gee, IS's can move pretty fast."  Scratch one platoon-mate...  Fortunately the IS is getting lowish on health and most of the rest of the reds are melting, so I can finish off the IS without issue.  The IS's platoon-mate gets one shot into me in vengence (the only damage I took), but I polish him off to finish the battle.

 

Thanks to our Hellcat for somehow getting a whopping amount of assist damage off of the KV-2, so the KV-2 didn't manage to come out on top in XP :rolleyes:...

I was bg2b's platoon mate for the above battle, and first off: I hate the name MR.FAST FINGERS! Anyway, the team DID do what I intended them to do when I typed 'waterfall', which was go to the waterfall side of the map. Well, not really most went left of the center hill except me and bg2b, so we split up. I was a bit worried, but it was great because the reds all came in a big ball of steel, so they were surrounded by us. On top of that, they kept getting in each others way. I at first was sniping from behind one of the solid buildings,while bg2b went up the hill and shot down on them/held them off. As their numbers dwindled to about 4, I moved because A: I was spotted, and B: They were shooting me, AND C: they had moved a bit to my left so I was not getting as many shots on them as I had been before. I got shot by a Nashorn, which bg2b rammed soon after, and ended up near the edge of the hill, using the edge for cover. Polished off some low health guys, and soon it was only an IS in that area. I charged. OK,OK, I know it was a bad idea, but I forgot that an IS's turret turns fast! After a quick dogfight scene, in which I was slowed down by a dune and shot, shot again, then rammed and shot, I died. So sue me :rolleyes:. The other swarmed immediately after I died and killed the IS. WHY COULDN'T YOU GUYS BE A BIT FASTER, HUH TEAM??? HUH???:izmena:

Edit: Doh, this is actually bg2b, but we're still logged in as Footkick7272....

 

A reminder that for the tier 5 platoon contest, you have to be low tier, i.e., it has to be a tier 5/6 battle.  (Similarly for the tier 4 platoon.)  That's really been a pretty hard requirement to meet.  I don't know how many platoon games I've run with a SPUDer where we did well but were high tier.  I'd suggest dropping that requirement next year.

ooh look, a microphone! I think I'll gild it with gold and then stud it with rubies. Wait, it's not shinny enough; bring me a new one and gild it with platinum and stud it with diamonds...there, that's better.
