I'm trying to figure out if I want to go for a heavy or get a higher tier medium. I am enjoying the mediums, though the lights can be fun just for their speed.

Fuck me... I get 5 kills with my T-28 in a game full of 5's and 6's and we still loose.

Then... 3 kills, and a bunch of pens and spots with my M-5 in a game full of 5's, 6's and a few 7's... and we loose

yeah... I had a good time. More relaxing and less stressful than playing with a bunch of "strangers"

That was mad fun. Not something I want to do every time, but on special occasions it has its charm. I'm sure a lot of folks will be on more over the holiday week/end, so maybe after Christmas we can pull together another company-sized group and work on tactics a little more...

This will now be known to me as "Tier Ten Let-Down Day"

Tier tens that have no business being in tier tens being lucky with MM, or is this just the gods punishing me?

Long after my team's stellar tier tens disappeared after fuck-nuttery on the battlefield, I and a few teammates were left to take on large enemy forces in two successive battles. Well, with my Patton we were only losing by 2 tanks when they had six tanks left - counting both their nearly full-health tier tens (E-100 and IS-4), but all we had were two damaged tier 9 mediums, an arty and a T32. The opposing team had three arty, a T28 Proto, and those two tier tens.

I may be on tonight... maybe... but it's almost too stressful to play like this.



Might I point out a 44% Maus and a 43% T110E5? Not even platooned, but thrown together as the two top tanks for my team. Thanks MatchMaker!

In the Patton battle our two tier tens were supposedly better, but both died extremely early anyway. I had to race back to base and take on both the E-100 and the IS-4 at the same time (playing very carefully to stay out of the fire of the E-100 while working the IS-4 down)

Not entirely sure how we could blow a 90% win chance either.

I agree, it definitely took the stress out of "trying" to win above all. I'm still kind of bitter though, I don't think I've ever been one shotted more than I did last night. It takes incredible mounts of skill or money to one shot a 3001P in a T6 match.

Of course, it may been more than one shot, I really couldn't hear the game over all the laughing.

I was 130 wins from going to 51%.
Now it is more like 170

Dave: If the random MM pisses you off so much.. You want nothing to do with FYYFF's beer driven "hey let that girl in she's had 3000 matches in her LTraktor and even won a few.. but insist she drives her level one just for a laugh" matchmaking technique...

...but what a fun way to lose 20 rounds

p.s. good job on the 7 kills

still waiting for my x5 with my T28 Proto. After 6 battles.
Dunno how to play this thing yet. Can't keep up to any teammates, but don't want to wait behind. just bounced 5 shots off a TigerP with the medium gun

On the upside, hit auto pilot and surf the web for 5 minutes until you get where you are going
