I just got the M103 a few days ago. For the most part I'm awful in it, but this was a good game. Just trying to figure out what I did right so I can hopefully keep doing that.

Ok, I've tried to apply the advice/criticism you gave me in the last replay review. 

In this game, I attempted to be more aggressive early on (going for the spots, as we had no lights) and then, later, assassinating the 140. However, I think you'll still think I'm playing too passively :look: We'll see. Also, I picked another game which looks good on paper but still wasn't played optimally. For example, there was a long period mid game when it was a massive heavy slugfest and I didn't know how to push the situation. Should I have gone to the other side of the river? Tried to flank the heavies, even with the Jagdtiger and 140 watching them? Or did I play it right by sniping then taking out the 140 (I doubt it)?

I've found that I act like a pussy much more when there's arty and corridors for arty to destroy you. I think Erlenburg is a map I always kind of know what I want to do (if my team comp lets me), whereas other maps I'm more hesitant, which leads to passive play.

Anyway, here you go. Thoughts once again welcome:

This game was awkward AF.I still have no idea how to play Fisherman's bay in meds.The Pershing is the only tank I have which has maxed out view range(I'm using vents instead of optics,but I have a food consumable) but I still have no idea what I can and cannot spot.Any criticism you can give will be greatly appreciated

This replay doesn't seem to exist.

Not bad result but there is big room for improvement.

Thanks once again for the feedback.

I'm fascinated by your thought process when advising that I should have gone after the Jagd/T32/Mutz solo. Surely, in an autoloader with 1,300 clip potential, that would have been an incredibly risky move, even if the game was won? I rarely overextend in any autoloader, as its so easy to get rekt, especially by yolo-retards who don't give a shit whether they die if they get two shots of damage in.  That's the reason why I went back to the other flank to farm the enemy heavies with the rest of my team (although I only got 6 of 8 shots out). When would you say it would become too risky to push a flank alone in an autoloader?

Just a few specific observations:

  1. Man, those marks of excellence criticisms :cri: That was only like my 40th battle in that tank!! I'm now 94 battles in and averaging 3,600 DPG and 800 APG, so its not TERRIBLE :kappa:
  2. E5 miss - I was going for 2nd engine fire - I just missed.
  3. I never autoaim (except very occasionally when circling tanks or on arty when I want to dodge their shells), so the Jagdtiger shot was just rushing the 4th shot to get into cover.
  4. Would you have pushed into the heavy area directly at any point? I always avoid it on that flank from the North spawn as its easy for their heavies to go hull down and their TDs/meds too quick poke you and shoot you in the flank.

A TVP vs T8s and a non-turreted TDs is an easy win unless they're all grouped up (which they weren't). Especially on a map like Erlenberg where you can constantly draw the fight out by using the terrain. The real problem would be if they just yolo you, but you need 3 clips to kill both the T32 and Mutz and the only thing you cannot let happen is for them to get close. You're mobile than both and there's a gigantic ridge on the east that you can use to prolong the fight and even ridges at the far back from your side of the engagement. Considering your team pretty much won the east when you went to dig out the 140 right away you don't really have to worry about taking damage from the middle so you can even use the ridge on that side as well. 

Another cheeky thing you could is to take two shots, reload but play like you have shots. A mid HP T8 won't pick a fight on a TVP with shots in the chamber. More risky but most likely would work against anyone with a brain. People rarely consider someone pulling one over on another in a game that's so punishing for being an idiot in the first place. 

 

1. :doge: 

2. :doge: 

3. :kjugh: 

4. No, it's too hard to push unless your team pushes the bottom and rarely pays off unless middle is cleared and you can push the outside of the castle.

Oh glorious master, tell me how I could have won this game.

My team melted pretty quickly but I feel like I could have done better.

I haven't really played casemate TDs in a while and I decided to grind 3MoE on my ISU-130. But I've neglected casemate TDs for so long that I have no fucking idea where to go, basically.

I have a Steppes replay which we did win in the end, but I have a feeling I made some (very) questionable decisions on where to go/when to push.

@Kolni are you still doing replay reviews? I have a short one for you if you are.

I'm pursuing T54E1 marks (this game put it up to 90.18%) and had this where I was dead within 5 minutes. I managed 4.7k dmg but I'd really like to know how I can maximise my plays so I can get these marks.

Edit: derp, forgot replay link : http://wotreplays.com/site/2953454#details

Micropatch yesterday made all of these completely useless... gonna try and see if my RU client didn't update and do them there.

Otherwise feel free to just post current replays since I've been messing around with quality settings and stuff the video should be 1080/60fps now :D 

nope WoT sucks so please send new replays guise

And its me again. This time with some camping. Was a decent game but I bounced to many shots I feel like. Often got trouble to find out how a tank is positioned especially on long range.

http://wotreplays.com/site/2960996#erlenberg-happylittlecloud-waffentr_ger_auf_pz_iv

Gotta get some M46 Replays for you next since I love that tanks and want to improve at it even more.

By the time you get around to doing this,WG will have probably released another micropatch that makes it unplayable because they hate us  :rngfu:

Yeah... I was being far too careful early on in the bat. I didn't want to get caught off by the one dude doing weird shit in TDs.
As for the foch 155, one of the dudes fed me false information (he's clipping) only to find out he had 1 shell left in his clip lul.

For the second clip, the whole point of us being down there was to force as many tanks as possible to react to us which would allow 1 line to push. And yeah, we should have backed out a lot earlier now that you mention it. We practically accomplished our job in that push by forcing 5 tanks back to us.

Thanks for the tips m80.I got the IS-7 recently and I've been using the crew that we got during the domination gamemode so I don't have 6th sense on it.Only skill I have on that tank is safe stowage on my female loader cuz getting ammo racked for 1800HP by an E100 is NOT fun.

Proud? BTW I don't want a review on that one, since I don't like TD's that much. And I don't feel comfy going close quarters since the handling is akward and it gets locked down so easily.

Thought I had this won until a VILIN player pulled a Kolobanov's out of his ass.
