So, I know this isnt a metric which we use anymore, but my WN7 is simply stuck and staying right around 1500. Why? Cause, Im either bad at killing tanks or bad at kill stealing. Even while I was over 2400 WN8 for a brief time (RIP starting new tank lines, right?!) my kills per battle have consistently been right around 1.2. Get the damage? Sure, can do. But stealing getting those kills? Newp Tanks Im playing/grinding right now most of the time AT2 (8 battles, 16 kills, such PEW PEW PEW) Panther 2 (113 battles, 104 kills, 59% WR, 1408 DPG) BatChat (240 battles, 345 kills, 55% WR, 2438 DPG) M46 Patton (108 battles, 150 kills, 58% WR, 2246 DPG) E75 (120 battles, 104 kills, 54% WR 1886 DPG... OMFG SUCH BAD) (.94+2+1.44+1.39+.87)/5 = 1.32 kills Im also playing some scouts and premiums, but the ratios are a bit lower still bringing me down to 1.2 kills per battle. So... what do I need to potentially consider in order to get my kills up? I dont feel like Im in the habit of trying to get more damage instead of taking a gun out. Do I need to check my positioning and find ways to improve it? Just very unsure about where to start with this lil thang.
Two nights ago I had the opportunity to platoon with sela for the first time (CrabEatOff was the 3rd). I had been playing well that day and the day before, but was starting to make some questionable decisions. As the night progressed, to Crab and sela's bemusement, then mortification, then borderline rage I proceeded to make uncharacteristically dumb decision after decision. I have always been streaky, with my above average games punctuated by the occasional derp and the occasional hard carry, but my derpiness reached new highs (lows?) that night, with enough potatoes to make the state of Idaho proud. As an act of public self-flagellation and as a self-improvement exercise, from which I hope someone learns something, I will post my replays from that night, with initial comments by me and invite the community to pick apart my crap play. And yes, Crab/sela, some of these games will seem even worse when you see them from my perspective. I was cringing on watching some of those replays: "You IDIOT, WHY did you peek there?" Game 1: Himmelsdorf, IS-3, Loss As we deploy, our team is noted to be... deep red. We initially plan to push down the 2-3 lines and cut in perhaps at the G line. As I push forward to support sela, Crab notes we have a mass of mid/lower-tier heavies heading hill, with only a Mutant6 guarding the 8-line. Crab flexes over, asks for support, and sela heads over to assist... but I fail to respond, and push further up, engaging four tier 6/7 tanks. In retrospect, I should have not pushed up nearly as far, and I had a window to disengage even late in the game, but my initial push up took me out of position. I do not think an 8-line deployment would've been suitable, probably better to deploy where Crab ended up going. Game 2: Mines, IS-3, Win A much better game from my perspective. sela and I tag-teamed hill effectively. My major mistake consisted in overestimating the extremely poor player in a Lowe sitting at the base-overlook noob sniper spot, trying to shoot at him from range resulting in 3 bounces, while the M48A1 flanks and destroy me. I should have rushed the Lowe, taken a hit or two (probably of HE!) and taken him out, allowing me better cover from the islands as well. Game 3: Sacred Valley, T69, Loss This one was frustrating: I'll chalk up to my lack of familiarity with the map, coupled with hanging back about 2 minutes too long, trying to decide whether or not base was going to hold. When I did go back, I took a wrong turn and ended up at a steep uphill climb which I could not negotiate in time to prevent the cap-out. Game 4: Westfield, T69, Loss A tier 10 battle again. I push up to what I think is a tactically advantageous spot on the downslope, near sela's deployment. However, they have more mediums than us and our Bat and T71 camp at a noob spot, I get lit and take fire. Sela drops back, but I make a major mistake: I do not move after emptying my clip, which could've allowed me to extricate myself far more safely, and potentially do more damage. It was likely a loss due to poor tier 10 play, but I could have made much more of an impact. Game 5: Port, T69, Win Pretty good play from me here, maybe some questionable mid/late-game target selection, but overall good damage output. Game 6: Ensk, IS-3, Win I had a poor early game, but lucked out as the KV-2 was firing HE, not derp HEAT. I bounced too many shots off the IS-6 I was dueling, but others came to my aid, and I cleaned up nicely late game. Rushed too many shots on the IS-6, but overall solid game. Game 7: Arctic Region, E-75, Win This was a monster game, and I generally did fairly well. We had a flood of tanks go to the south corner... but most of them flailed ineffectually as I held the enemies at bay. I may have seemed to push a little further down that most would prefer, but that spot allowed me to sidescrape effectively covering my lower plate, whereas a spot atop the hill would've exposed my lower plate a lot more than I'd have liked. The team failed to deal with the flanking T34, and if the 6 other tanks with me (IS-8, JT88, AT-15A, Tiger II, JP, T25AT) had been of slightly more use, I'd have held that corner comprehensively. As it is, those 6 tanks combined for ~3400 damage while I supplied the remaining 4300-odd. Game 8: Redshire, IS-3, Win This was all on sela and Crab, as they pushed up and supplied firepower and positional spotting, and I supported the attack. Not much wrong here either. Game 9: Murovanka, Object 268, Loss sela offered early lights through the magical forest, I pushed up to get shots, then failed to fall back, got spotted and triple-tapped early, taking my gun out of the fight 2 minutes into the game. Should have dropped back after my initial shots, forcing the enemy spotters to advance deeper for spots, and using terrain for cover. Game 10: Ensk, Object 268, Win Not much wrong here, as I power through the enemy team for top damage and top gun (despite sela's presence!!). The three of us worked well together here. Game 11: Erlenberg, T57, Loss Comments reserved for now, I need to think this game over further. Game 12: Karelia, T57, Win I peek twice at the SAME DAMN SPOT vs a 268 and get punished. Should have pulled back and dropped wider/lower to flank the mass of tanks straight ahead, but instead I poked like a pubbie. Game 13: Mines, Leopard 1, Loss I go island, overextend, get spotted, and a Bat 155 clips me out. Not much to say, was at the completely wrong spot, with no arty cover and didn't drop back fast enough after initially being spotted. I probably would have been better off charging hill and letting the chips fall as they may.
