Guy was in a WZ-131 on Prokhorovka and actually knew how to spot.  He covered mid and the 1/2 line and was a big reason for a rather easy win (ended up with nearly 3.5k in spotting dmg... in a game where tier 8 is tops that's pretty damn good for a pub match).  I made a point to thank him in game and in a /w afterwards.

 

I can't say this enough but I really wish they'd add a system where you can vote for a player doing a good job.  After so many nods said player would get a buff of some kind (maybe a day of prem, a period of extra crew XP, etc.).  It's rare when pubbies are useful but I would absolutely love to show my appreciation with more than just a shout out in game.

My team just now on Karelia.

 

Game loads in and I recognize several purple players on the other team (all alone, not platooned).  I figured this was going to be a testimony to how MM needs a lot of work (it still does).

 

What ended up happening was a lesson in playing maps correctly means even average players can clean the clock of purples.  The majority of my team pushed south, most of them went up hill while the rest went low and got shots from behind on the enemy team.  The enemy purples all went hill and their team didn't support from below.  We won 15-1.  Wasn't even close.  Damage was also spread across the entire team (I led with 1500 but the lowest was only like 700).  Was reminiscent of a CW match rather than a pub game.

Map was Tundra with tier 9 being tops. He was in a T-54 and I was in the Cent I. Only 4 of our team go hill (the other 2 were lights). When we get to the hill we ran into half of their team. The lights died fairly early (combining for 1k dmg which was respectable given the maelstrom) which left the 54 and I vs the enemy survivors. We both abused hull down locations (he used dips, I was abusing gun depression) to whittle away at the enemy. We'd both bait the enemy into firing letting the other one poke out and get shots. When we pushed we shared hps. Not a word or hotkey were used but the guy had a clue how to play so nothing needed to be said. He ended up with 2.7k dmg and 2 kills and I finished with 2.1k dmg and 5 kills. We turned that one side and basically won the game for our team.

 

Times when you run into players like this are extremely rare but very enjoyable.  Made for a very nice x5 as well.

And this is why I returned to the game. Those few games where everything goes just... optimal, is worth 50 shit-games.

 

Fjords, T25/2, tier 7. Start from West-side, go up the mid, 3-4 easy shots on Dicker Max and one more.

Get shot from behind by a T67 up in the north ravine, turn and shoot him once for 75%. He backs away, I know I can easily kill him. An M4 pops up, I take him for 47% while shooting on the move. Both of them hiding. I pop the M4 and T67 without taking any dmg.

Advancing on our base is a Tiger 1, KV-3 and one more. I head back. When I come back the 3rd tank is gone, I am alone at almost full health against Tiger (about 25%) and KV-3 (+75%). I first kill the Tiger without taking any damage. Then finish off the KV-3 while taking one full-damage hit.

Left now are 2 enemy arties, a T-34 on our team and me.

T-34 waits for me, we go in together. He lets me have both kills.

Best of all was the cheering, and insistance from more than one player that I should get Top Gun.

 

Pure fun.

Had one last night the 113 and my IS-8 were in sync and we plowed up their left flank, someone said he had great stats, I don't know but it just worked and we sliced and diced them. He was good without arrogance.

Bonanza1129 (183), MUNKHTUGS (JgPz 100), and hasuba (53/55)

 

Map was Murovanka and it got off to a bad start.  We lose several players early to stupid play so we're down from the very beginning.  Six minutes into the game it's down to myself (in a T34) and the 3 listed above against 7 enemy.  I'm at 1/3 health, the 100 is at 1/2 health, and the other 2 are at full health.  At this point we're all turtled up in the SW corner of the map.

 

An enemy pops out in the middle of the map at half health and the 100 finishes him off.  Unfortunately he loses more health and is taken down to 1/4 health.  Four against six.

 

I'm covering the northern side of our pocket and spot a full health IS-3 approaching.  I go hull down and keep pelting away at him.  I take him down to a 1-shot but he's been joined by a T57 (also a 1-shot by everyone on my team).  We're at that middle section of the 2 line on that map where teams meet up and take pot shots.  Seeing both I throw it in reverse and they both rush me.  I figure I'm dead as I watch the 57 come over the hill and towards me while I'm still reloading.  That was a big mistake on his part because he didn't have the depression to fire.  Right as he gets to the point where he might have been able to he goes up in flames.  I'm relieved but then see the IS-3 coming around the corner as well and I'm still not reloaded.  He goes up as well.  Both TDs landing killing shots right when I needed them to.  Four against four.  The 100 took an arty shot though and is down to 9% health and ammo racked.

 

I move back to my spot to keep eyes on the north.  I then spot a full health 140 up on the hill on the 3 line.  He's hull down and I have no shots and arty only splashes him for 50 or so.  He starts to move towards me and exposes himself.  I get in one shot but I'm in a bad spot if he pushes me.  I pull back and see our 183 pushing up.  This must've scared the 140 because he turns and runs in the open.  I get in an ass shot and so does the 183.  No more 140.  Four against three!

 

From there it was simple mopping up.  The other two real tanks on their team were damaged and scared so off in different corners of the map doing nothing to help their team.  Ours, OTOH, stuck together and covered each other and came back and pulled out one hell of a win.  I finished with just 234 hps, the 100 finished with 186, and the 183 took some hits from arty and in cleanup and finished with just 920 (which was the smart thing to do, he recon'ed by hps and ate the shots that exposed those surviving tanks that would have killed the 100 or myself).

mrcamper[DICER]  a clicker... NO JOKE!

 

Map is Ruinberg.  We're north spawn and I'm in my Cent 7/1.  We have mostly meds so rush the field hard.  Enemy is mostly heavies/TDs so goes town.  We push over quickly and we're in the south of the map while the enemy is still mid-city area.  We're up like 5-1 or something and it's looking like a blowout.

 

Pushing from field through their cap area and into town takes a lot out of my team.  Soon we're just barely up, like 9-7, and those meds still alive are real low health.  I push into town to try and cover the low health guys capping.  Unfortunately the enemy zooms back, a 416 II and 263, and kills the low health guys.  The 416 II comes after me and the 263 moves to finish off someone else on my team.

 

I take the 416 II without losing any health (I'm about 1/3 health).  The 263 finishes off my teammate and he's coming for me.  I'm now on the SW side of that church that's near the circle on the 1/2 line.  We have 4 guys alive but my team is screaming that one, a Lorraine, is a bot.  The other 2 are arty.  The enemy is the 263 (half health) and an IS-8 at like 1/3.

 

They split up, the 263 moving behind me and the IS-8 in front.  I put a shot into the IS-8.  He tracks me.  At this point I think the game is over and just sit still and make sure my last shot on the IS-8 hits so he's less health for the arty as they make a last stand.  I fire my shot, the IS-8 is down to about 100 health, and then... BOOM.  Arty takes him out.

 

Holy %^&#, I'm thinking, I'm still in this.  I gun it and make it around the corner of the church JUST AS the 263 is coming around.  He chases me around one full time and then arty gets another hit on him.  He's down to 150ish health.  He stops, turns around, and starts to go the other way.  I start to turn so I can keep avoiding him and arty hits him again to finish him off.

 

That arty was mrcamper above.  He was in the 155 58 which explained all the quick shots in succession.  He was also smart and moved to the SE corner of the map so he could have shots (and avoid the enemy who pushed our base through city).  Our other arty just sat in the same spot all game and did hardly anything.  The above won it for us.

Stupidly forgot his name.

On Steppes encounter, me in Excelsior, dude X in a PzIVH.

This guy and me won the eastern flank, 4 kills for me, 3 for him, around 1500 dmg each.

The fun part was that it was almost like controlling 2 tanks. Without any verbal communication he (and I, I presume) went exactly where the other guy wanted.

Map was Lakeville.  None of our meds went mid so I grudginly started to in my Tiger.  He comes up behind me and I yield.  I wasn't feeling good about using a heavy spotting mid so figured maybe he'd last a bit longer.

 

He quickly spots some enemies and we both start engaging.  Once the enemy is clearly in town we both push up.  We run into two sniping enemies at the normal spot near the middle road and base and dispatch them.  We then both, without typing out anything, move to engage the enemy forces in the valley.  Once that's done we both turn to engage enemy coming in from town.  He's low health at this point so I move up to take point being at almost full health.  He'll fire and I'll move up to eat shots if they come.  I fire and move back to give him a shot.  I wait til moving up to fire again, even though loaded, because I know he's aiming next to me.

 

One of those rare games where someone else gets it and you don't have to communicate.  You both know just how to play properly.  As you can see from the shot above we carried the team.

 

Games like this make WoT fun.  This is why I play.
