    Sapros got a reaction from CraBeatOff in 9.17.1 supertest   
    I never have issues penning it as long as I'm close enough not to get fucked over by my gun's dispersion. So I don't see why anyone would. 
    Oh, it's not an autopen once you 2-2 and fire in its general direction? 
    How terrible.

    Maybe they'll switch to efficiency and start focusing people who love sitting in the cap circle too much.

    -Take 2 clips of HEAT. You're gonna run into many city maps, so you need the HEAT to reliably pen heavies from front.
    -If you know that somebody else is gonna shoot "your" target, use the first shot to track him.
    -Learn to put the early clip in. starting a game with 1950 damage is sehr gut for marks.
    -Bat Chat is one of the best late game farmers, so save your health there.
    -Use your spotting abilities only when you know they cant counter you, It's not worth trading 1k HP for 2k spotted.

    You pissed me off enough that I actually came home from work and watched every single one of the matches in that twitch replay.
    My conclusion is the same as what I saw in the first match. Don't know why you posted a over an hour of you playing mostly BC and 2 games in an E5, but whatever. I'll give you a few tips, but before that, I need to get this off my chest: that was some of the most boring gameplay I've ever watched. You spent the first 5 minutes in every single game doing nothing but driving around pointlessly, looking for easy tanks to shoot at (and most of the time miss 3/5 of your clip on). As soon as you would spot a tank that could potentially shoot at you, you would run away in the opposite direction. You did not help win a single flank in those matches. This was the same for mines, ruin, steppes, highway, etc.
    Here is a perfect example of the last match you played:

    You drove up and down the 7/8 line within 3 grid squares of you base for 5 fucking minutes. Sniping at tanks your team was fighting in the field. You're not helping field, your not helping city, you're not spotting. I'm not sure if you just don't know how to play the BC, or you're too scared to actually fight tanks that aren't AFK or distracted by teammates. But either way, here are my tips:
    Learn how to properly scout in the BC in early game before you're loaded. Learn how to get a FULL clip of damage out early to help your team start winning one of the flanks right away. Relocate after the first clip and figure out where you can be useful next. Stop running away (driving back to base) when you spot 1 or 2 tanks going in your direction. Help your teammates win flanks instead of sitting back and getting a few useless shots in. Learn what positions are important on different maps and use your speed to take them early (instead of driving in circles around your damn cap). Stop taking stupid damage for most of your health trying to get some useless shot of damage. I'm sure I can add more, but this was way more effort than you deserve.

    Some people are so used to platooning they've forgotten how hard it can be to solo carry at high tiers. Especially when playing a support vehicle with no staying power, which is usually terrible in the current meta. Not to mention how frustrating it is when the map rotation starts crapping on you as well. I've seen a few peeps with terrible dpg/assisted/spots talking how "winning is everything". You are being carried. Please, fuck off.
    That being said, solopubbing at >60% in most vehicles is doable and something a true purple should be capable of imo.
    You're good at farming damage. But you're so passive early on it makes influencing the outcome of the games much harder than it needs to be. Stop playing so defensively and up the aggression. Yes, it will get you killed a lot initially, but once you've adapted, you'll get the same if not better dpg in addition to better spots/assisted, and most importantly, better win rates. 
    I know this because I have similar issues. Bad news is we're not as good as we think we are. Good news is there's nothing stopping us from getting better.

    Sapros reacted to Vetro in Guide on how to Solo at 86% WR   
    Hey guys, your friendly-neighborhood unicum vetro here hitting you with a spicy guide on how to solo at 86% win rate. This trick is 100% guaranteed to work and you'll be on your way to making Garbad's ghost jealous of your purpleness in no time!
    The first step is to buy a T26E4 Super Pershing and load 100% APCR rounds. The second step is to hit battle and proceed to shoot all red tanks until they are dead. Do this enough times and you will be as good as Gasai__Yuno, but without the anime!
    Thanks for reading my guide, and please don't mention small sample size. This is 100% statistically accurate.
    Proof:

    Sorry Akula

    I was expecting like some actual useful information and maybe some replays or examples besides just "I make it so I get shot and those things that can't pen me aren't doing damage to my team and those that can pen me I kill." Like no shit that's how you play a superheavy. You called this a guide and then wrote three lines of actual relevant stuff. It's not so much a guide as oh look I won a very high percentage of my games over a small sample. 10/10 guide would read again.

    Can we UP the expected values of the E25?? That tank is a joke to play and the values are a joke. Plus Gasi_Tuno might actually end his life. Sounds like a win win.

    I know its just a stupid troll by the xvm nerds but it was really irritating. Its ruined my stats and a lot of other players. Maybe these wn8 creators dont understand what they are doing and how important it is. Well gonna not play at all for this month cos of this so thanks kitty. Very mature person clearly

    Sapros reacted to engineered in Are "weekend teams" really a thing?   
    It could be that during x5 events, more players are apt to yolo due in first 3 min in hopes of being carried by their team to a win so they can jump in another tank to do the same. That causes gameplay to be unpredictable/suck.

    It's been a trend since Holiday Ops started. 
    People currently playing seem so hopelessly clueless about what they're supposed to do, it's nearly impossible for me to anticipate their actions.
    It's as if there was no meta.
