So I just saw this video of Lemmingrush, who I thank for his work if he ever sees this post, and I was wondering if this is how you guys play Pilsen in your mediums. I personally have some problems playing this map because my teams often die very early on the heavy flank. So even with mediums i tend to go there to avoid getting flanked early on. Another reason is that winning the 9-0 line is hard, because you will have to push into tds camping at the end of the map. But Lemming brings a new point to the table: win up to the mid of the 9-0 line, then if there are tds leave to flex back to the heavy flank; or if you think you can clear the flank, win it then flex back. I will post the video but i would like to hear your thoughts on it, and if how you play the map, if you do it like him or have a different approach.
As the title suggests, how do you play them? They are small maps, especially Mines, with very limited flanking/sniping options. Also one of the problems I have with AMX heavies on Mines, is that you will never, ever reload on time to shoot mediums going to hill.
After a long hard day of being awful at tanks I looked through my per-map statistics, curious to see if Ruinberg is truly as imbalanced towards the North side as I seem to believe. http://www.vbaddict.net/maps/bigcheese256-na-0f8982ec51da618674f35bf374c11b56/details-grid/public-ctf After looking it up (sort by winrate) I found that just as I expected Ruinberg's South side has my lowest winrate at 45.9% even though my personal performance there is still pretty good. To the topic at hand though: According to this chart my overall weakest map across all statistics is the South spawn on Pilsen, while I've been doing pretty well from the North. The only thing I can take from this is that I don't know how to play Pilsen's South side correctly and it's causing me problems. I have seen multiple mythical purple folk sitting with Pilsen as their best map statistically. What do you do to achieve that? How should I generally play this map? I feel like on Pilsen the East side is the most important sector, but the way the map's meta has developed it is often left open by the South and overrun by the North. This means most of my matches see me pushing up the 3-line into heavies and TDs, but more often than not by the time the West sector is cleared you're getting shredded by mediums from behind. I'm not sure how to deal with this - pushing too hard down the 2/3-line is going to lose me a lot of hit points leaving me food for said mediums, sitting in the middle is useless and the East is usually left open. This video here is the only noteworthy Pilsen South game I have which shows off what I usually do and one of the few times it succeeds (32% chance no less): Their weak West flank fell before their main force arrived behind us. I was able to fall back and defend, facing one flank at a time. But again this is rarely the outcome. Any suggestions? How would you normally play the South side of Pilsen?
