I've found that the ultimate best battles happen when the team splits and covers both flanks. However, strategy is for common sense players (most WoTB Ayers are not common sense players) I for one have learned to just carry as hard as I possibly can, and hope my team follows suit.

True, and I like stratagems. But believe me, 9 or so out of 10 times, strategy is not at play in what I see. Or it is a strategy only in the most dubious sense. Excepting when good players are involved.

I don't care about the call. I go where I best judge myself most useful or the most beneficial for me depending on players and matchup.

Sometimes, you just gotta sit back and watch them all burn. Don't forget to bring popcorn. You're going to need a snack.

there's always one moron that goes left when the other 6 go right.

 

 

He's usually the one yelling about the team being idiots and pounding on the "Help" button when he runs headlong into 6 reds all by himself:facepalm:

not as often but more annoying is the tryhard who spergs out when you don't follow his call.  I see a lot of that often followed by "gg we lose" D-baggery in this game, but not too often to really matter.

Perhaps some tankers would prefer to see the red team dominate seven short 7-on-1 battles in rapid succession. It's much faster that way.

They used to call it The Lemming Train and If you had a medium or light and did NOT flank your team would call you out for the entirety of the match.  Now teams want flankers to...not flank or protect from the opposition screaming around the corner.  Meds and light players usually look at the matchup and decide if a fast flank might take out a sniper or provide a position to hit heavies from the rear.  It is like when a cornerback gets a free and unblocked run at the quarterback...

Even worse is the guy who calls a direction and doesn't go that direction.   

 

Or sends the team of to the right and then sits behind them trying to use them as meatshields.

 

I don't call a direction very often, but I remember one time I did, and one of the other guys immediatly said, "you better not suck".

And aint that the truth.

 

If you want to be the general you better be willing to lead the charge, and you better not suck.

The worst are the guys calling a direction with no clue how to read the map and forces. Actually, no, the worst are the guys who ignore the plan that three or four agreed to and drive off spamming SoS.

 

anyway, they inevitably have sub 50 WR's. 

 

Trying to lead before you have figured out anything, wow.

The call means nothing. If six people go the wrong way, you go with them. You don't just sit there complaining. The more texting you're doing the less helpful you are.

It doesn't matter if you go town or hill or caves or whatever. You get a good position. You do more damage than you take. You advance when you can. And you help your team.

If you're only effective on one part of each map it's time to revisit lower tiers for training. You're not always going to get your team to go your way. Be flexible. Be smart. For that matter the red aren't always going to go the way you think either.

TLDR: Less complaining. More pewpewpew.

I suck at this twitchfest - but I did learn in a real war fifty years ago that you don't flank until a line of resistance is created; and you don't just rush forth, you advance by bounds (cover to cover) with -hopefully- some covering fire (overwatch).

some times I do this but here's why: when there's a bunch of heavies on fort despair on the other team and we have 6 heavys and me(bbeing a med or light) I call all go right because that's where the heavy lane is then I go left to get behind the other heavys because how much help is a light tank going to be in a heavy alley    

   Well John, people have different priorities. Some are here to drive historical tanks and have fun, others for the glorious color coded numbers and other for the relationships and friends they've made. The middle group are the ones who'll say they can't play due to 3.8, they're afraid of having smaller numbers than everyone else and of losing the imaginary position they have. They're also the same people who immediately pull stats into any discussion so that they can try to discredit the other side. I will admit I have good stats but I honestly am here for tanks and fun. Once this game becomes anything other than that I'm out but until then I'm here to stay.

Kid,

Sometimes, salty is a better long term plan. There are calls that are just so stupid that the chances of winning are so slim that beating it into the heads of the losers who just have to go town, no matter what, has a greater benefit. I know your likely response, but if you go down that line of logic you end up finding out I'm correct. 

 

There is always some nutter that thinks his plan is so great that if only everyone would understand, go along, and do their best, it would be super. They always blame the lack of those three things rather than themselves or their plan when it fails. The reality is that the plan that can't either get those things, or succeed without them just isn't a good plan. Also, killing hundreds of thousands is rarely a necessity of good plans. See the history of most any authoritative state for more info. 

 

I yield the soap box, lol.
