Thread title is self-explanatory. This is what I should have made initially instead of just Replays - so disregard that one.

Post here your battle reports and replays (put replays here - http://mwreplays.com/ )

The battle that compensated my bad luck in the past couple days.

If you actually watch the battle you'll see I got real lucky overall. All my shots at cmdr cupolas hit where I aimed and all my shots did hp damage. And I managed to break them very early on with my first 3-4 shots - 2-3 important tanks were crippled and intimidated, from there on it was easy.

However it's a bit boring to watch, I don't really do anything especially creative, just keep good hull-down position and hit often, so I won't be mad if you skip it.

Day before yesterday I could not lose in Hellcat. Think I won, like, 14 of 15 battles or something. Today - reversed. 6 losses in 6 games.
But if I perform like this, you know it is one of those days:

Defeat! Map: Serene Coast den 29 januari 2013 20:04:00
Vehicle:: M18 Hellcat
Exp: 991 + Credits: 26 469
Achievements: : Pool's Medal, Top Gun

10 kills. At the end I was alone against 5 of them. Picked off 3, left a broken down P38 and... a Matilda at 100%.
Problem was - I was all out of ammo. Last attempt I did in the game was trying to ram the P38, but the Matilda got me. Both were sitting on our cap.

Twelve straight wins. Almost all the teams were amazing. Worked together. Knew to hit enemies from flanks rather than all bunching up in one area from the front. It's like I entered an alternate universe.

I need to go buy lotto tickets...

Edit: Right after posting this I get two losses with two absolutely boneheaded teams full of nothing but mouthbreathers.

Blog (in Russian) that has some of replays by some of quite good players, even w/o Russian knowledge those are worth watching as some of the tactics are let's say a bit unorthodox. Regularly updated.

The power of platooning.

Had three terribad players (40, 44, and 48% w/r) all in a KV-1S on Fisherman's Bay (northern team). They wait about 2 minutes after we start and just move straight towards the enemy cap. They stuck together the whole way. Ended up getting 6 or so kills amongst themselves. Capped for the win.

I see this fairly often recently. It does go against the rule that deep red players are absolutely worthless.

I looked closer at their stats and I'm wondering if they're botters most of the time. One of the guys had 8k games and only 1k kills. Another one had similar stats (these were the 40 and 44% guys). To know enough to wait till the enemy is engaged in the normal areas, move up together, stick together, and cap takes more brain power than someone who gets such a low record by playing all the time.

After the horrible Campinovka experience I had on my Type T-34 I jumped in my T34.

Victory!
Battle: Ensk Wednesday, January 30, 2013 1:17:00 PM
Vehicle: T34
Experience received: 1,834

Yep, that's right. A Steel Wall in a T34. I lucked out though.

Game started real bad. I was on the northern team and heading east when I saw all their Type 59s zoom up into one of the enclosed courtyards near our base. They should have been overrun because all our heavies, minus me, were heading toward them and they outnumbered them over 2:1. Instead, my team gets scared and plays hesitant. By the time I get to the fight we've lost 2-3 and several others are badly damaged.

I move in. There's a broken building at the northern part of this enclosure so only my hull is showing. I Get 2 kills and scare the crap out of several of their tanks. Then 2 of their heavies flank me from around the corner from the east. They can't aim. I'm able to back up to the far edge of the western side of the map. There I turn south and use the hull of one of my dead teammates to hide my hull and pick off 1 more tank way in the south and severely damage another, sending it running away. I then circle in around the last Type 59 still on the inside. At this point, what was a surefire defeat was now in our hands. I move to the middle towards their base and kill a T34. We cap with almost half our team still alive and only 1 of theirs. It was a great recovery. In no small part to myself, thankyouverymuch. ;)

If you can abuse terrain it's not that hard to get Steel Wall in T34. Not to mention you can dance against an incompetent player your hull so that you'll bounce far more than your fair share.

Still, Steel Wall is fairly rare compared to real tier 8 heavies. I average one in ~2.2% of my games (looking at other players that seems to be fairly consistent) in the T34. That's half of my next closest tier 8 (IS-3 at ~4.5%) and just barely above what I averaged in the T-44 (~1.6%).

In the T1HT I got scout and I only traveled 150m :huh:

Sand river normal battle, south side. Everyone of team goes over the hills and town to the east so I stop and take position on the cap point behind some rocks to protect the 2 arty who stayed there. It seems the enemy had the same idea as our team but they took the other way to our base. I think I spotted 12 enemy tanks and killed 8 including 4 churchils, best battle in a while.
