  1. Personally, I kind of gave up on this game a long time ago. Got into clan wars and competitive play a few years back pretty seriously, but its hard to care now since so few of the old timers are around anymore. You spend 3 years doing CW with the same few guys across a couple clans it's hard to stay interested when you're playing with a bunch of guys you barely know. Last year and a half to two years I just cant bring myself to play more than a few days back to back without a month or two off. Besides, I have all the tanks I want and with no one to platoon with, what's left?
  2. I was wondering where you had been the last few months. Downloading the thing this weekend since sick of getting XVM cancer sniped every day.
  3. Now the messed up thing is comparing the top damage to the MOEs... I'm top 50 in my AMX30 prot, only 88% MOE... I am bad and feel bad
  4. No, you're pretty much spot on, the easiest way to beat a purple is to kill off his help. I would have actually live through the yolo had I not just shot at the 50 100 when they derped, the AMX30 killed me with .35 sec left on my RL for the kill shot on him. Like I said, I was green/blue platoon yoloed about 20 times over the weekend, and only got killed by the yolo twice. Normally I'm able to tag them 2-3 times while they try to close the distance, then force bounces and misses at close range long enough for my team to eat them. The correct play for those two that game would have been to help the T54 kill off my team's retard E75 and contain the town flank. You can bet I'd tag them a few times while they did this, but they'd be down maybe 500-600 hp a piece to roll up my teams 2-3 town pushers. Doing so would have put them up 3 T9s to my team's 1 and placed me in a tough position with my east flank gone. Thankfully they gave me the free win instead of forcing a close game. Basically, if you're dealing with a solo unicum kill his/her help off, then aim for a 3 to 1 over-match once you isolate them to offset their ability to play terrain and vision mechanics.
  5. So, I've been a purple for a really long time and I'm not new to the whole occasional ehrmaurd purple must XVM yolo from your typical green/blue player, usually under the guise that somehow by killing me they'll automatically win, but the last few weeks are just getting silly. So, in an effort to make you greens/blues less stupid, lets go over this in detail with pictorial evidence from one of the more retarded attempts (they did manage to kill me, one of only 2 successful platoon XVM yolos of the 20 some odd over the weekend): So, we start out on Fisherman's bay, they have a 2 man toon of greens as 2 or their 3 t9s, both in meds. I'm in a T44 and head to the typical med playground mid to support my heavies in their town push, have a good old time farming an IS3 and AT-15. I notice they decide to play mid as well and punish my teams type that went full retard. I put one more shot down range towards the 50 100 then notice something stupid unfolding on the minimap as that T9 toon goes full retard to kill me. Now, you'll note on my minim map that I have 6 tanks covering me and a T54 proto with me. Now to any sane person, I'm in an extremely safe position, I have hard cover near me, no flanks to worry about and plenty of supporting fire. They might all be oranges and yellows, but lets face it, oranges can shoot just fine if you drive in the open. And welp, they got me, then promptly both die. After calling them out on the absolutely retarded game play, they think they made the right decision throwing those 2 t9 meds because XVM makes them think they'll have a better chance to win now. They ended up losing pretty badly at 15 to 7 (or 8 can't remember), most of my teams surviving tanks had most of their HP. How could XVM have lied to them so? So, what went wrong they wondered? It might have something to do with throwing away a combined 3300 HP and 5k DPM to kill a 1000 HP T44. By yoloing me just because XVM, they effectively deprived their team of 20-25% of its fighting ability. So, to all you greens/blues out there, stop the XVM yolo, you're only hurting yourself and your team. TLDR, XVM yolo is bad when you lose tanks um kay? Also, forgot how to make spoilers so, meh, its bigger in the inside.
  6. It wouldn't change a thing; the valley affords control of maybe 20% of the map, and its easily choked off. If you own the mid and have a clue what you're doing you can lock down a good 40% of the map, coupled with a pile of meat city and you've got an easy 60% even without pushing. This gives you room to reposition to get base resets from a distance while your mid spots as well as providing mutually supporting fires for pushes/defense. Valley gives you none of these benefits.
  7. Let's be honest, you don't really need XVM stats. There are only a handful of players on the server that I'd even consider a threat, and I know most of them. Greens-light purple are so utterly predictable and ridiculously passive that you can go by clan tags to know exactly how they'll play and where they will go. They care too much about trying to farm stats than actually understanding why super-unciums are as good as we are and how to get to that level. Heck I run solo at a higher w/r than most of these blues/light purples do in a three man toon. I worry more about oranges than greens since, while they don't position well or necessarily know how to shoot, they are unpredictable and have the power of RNGesus. Nothing ruins a carry more than some retarded orange doing something stupid that gets you lit and killed (besides cancer). Basically, If you recognize the name, and its a super-unicum, they'll get super aggressive, if you see some decent clan, they'll be passive and campy and if you dont recognize the name/clan, expect potato. I don't see how this is so hard to figure out that people need a mod and "adjust their play styles".
  8. And just broke my RU exp record, 2803 base with the almighty Rudy (Pool's medal Op): http://wotreplays.com/site/1887206#self
  9. Well, its been a really long time since I've thrown some replays up, I have a few good ones that are actually compatible with 9.7.

  10. Have a few new ones up, including one of me whoring all of Kewei's damage in my 13 90, on Himmels, in a T10 game, much rage, many tears. AMX 13 90: http://wotreplays.com/site/1685480#himmelsdorf-dmcgill1-amx_13_90 T49: http://wotreplays.com/site/1685482#sand_river-dmcgill1-t49 OBJ430II: http://wotreplays.com/site/1685475#pearl_river-dmcgill1-object_430_version_ii Added this morning: http://wotreplays.com/site/1687009#sacred_valley-dmcgill1-amx_13_90 The other team's JP100 has an interesting reaction to a 13 90 behind him. Bought a Firefly, after 5 painful losses with utter shit T8s, I managed to Ace the thing: http://wotreplays.com/site/1688715#northwest-dmcgill1-sherman_firefly
  11. Moar 13 90 up. Unfortunately the patch might have broken most of them... The one from tonight still works though. http://wotreplays.com/site/1664328#sacred_valley-dmcgill1-amx_13_90 So far as the E1 goes, I love mine. I run full APCR and cola on it, with a 4 skill crew and vents my clip r/l just about on par with a 50b. Coupled with the inter-shot time of 2.22 its a great tank for melting t8/9s with ease and giving T10s a bad day if they don't pay attention.
  12. Few More dusted off the baby T57 (T54E1) for a few fun ones also moar T49 whoring: T49 (lots of trolish snaps): http://wotreplays.com/site/1444155#stalingrad-dmcgill1-t49 T49 (2 auto aim ammo racks): http://wotreplays.com/site/1444156#highway-dmcgill1-t49 T54E1 (7.5K dmg farming T10s): http://wotreplays.com/site/1444162#fisherman_s_bay-dmcgill1-t54e1 T54E1 (High Caliber, Tank Sniper): http://wotreplays.com/site/1459097#sand_river-dmcgill1-t54e1
