    Pubbie doing pubbie things

    I was playing a game in my Type 64, moving in the general direction of two or three marks of excellence, and had had a pretty good game. I tried to make it to the passive scouting bush on Prok, but a 2801 yoloed and spotted me. After he died I tried again for the bush, only to be insta-spotted by, it turns out in the end, a camo'ed up E 25. Anyways, I made about 1,200 damage, but then someone took issue with how I was playing my 64. Well I'm not gonna think much of it. I keep playing, and all of a sudden I'm up to around 2,300 damage. This is going great! This fellow didn't think so, though. Oh crap! I thought I was in a tank that actually gave a shit what pubbies think. Whoops, sorry mate. Anyways, I make it all the way to 3,000+ damage, not an unimpressive result for a tier 6 light tank, and as we're all closing in on the last remaining tank... he teamkills me. I'm not too sad about it, but I think it's a scummy thing to do, telling someone else how to play their tank and killing them for not doing so. Especially when they almost triple your damage, light tank or not. Got a couple post game chat shots from the encounter. Shoutout to this legend: And here's the clown in the KV-1: Almost forgot, but here's the replay link for anyone interested in seeing the game played out. And before anyone says I should have posted this in the name and shame thread, I have a statement and a question. Statement: I wanted to make my own thing. If there was a name and shame subforum, I would've gone there. Question: How many returning readers do the recent posts in the name and shame thread get? If it's a decent number, next time I'll head over. Just want to give a few people a laugh or two and shame the assholes of WOT. Cheers.

    Pubbies get mad at the silliest little things

    This is my first topic here on WOTLabs, I've no idea to go.
  3. Story time. Trying to 3 mark my T57 Heavy, it's terrible because the pubbies make my games fluctuate terribly in result, and I don't have any platoonmates who are really good at keeping me alive and farming. That's okay, I'll get there. Not the point. I played this battle just before the server restart and got into Pilsen in a 3-5-7 match. Nice. Have my standard marking ammo loaded, 24 HEAT 12 AP, and set up on a corner. My first target is a Pz VII that rolls around a corner side on. I fire two into his side as he snaps one into my tracks and backs off. I pop the other two shells into a Tiger II before reloading. 40 seconds later (been planning my move carefully) I get back to the Pz VII, now at 1450HP. He angles, and I aim my HEAT to the round weakspots near the back of the tank, directly below the turret. The first two pen and he's at 650HP. The third bounces and I think "RIP, there goes some nice HP" (close game at that point, I was worried we could lose), but the fourth (same damn shoulder spot) ammoracks him. Very nice. I go on to have a shade under 5,400 damage and 5 kills, along with most of my HP. Well, more than half at least. I log back in after the server restarts to find that A) my MOE is back over 88%, huzzah, and B) I have a surprise PM! Remember, the Pz VII that I wrecked was named YummyKittyCupcake. The PM, however, was from someone completely unexpected. I still don't know who they are or what they want. See for yourself. EDITED FOR MORE PICS Claus needs a video series for happenings like this one, I think.

    Kind of stuck on what tank(s) to get next.

    Looks like 50 120 to 50B. I support that.
