Replay: http://wotreplays.eu/site/1284975?secret=489e18bcf4de09d686e4fa4f70b0f279 I had this match on Abbey yesterday that made me feel completely useless. I'd appreciate some advice on what you guys would have done in the situation. The lineup. Three tier 9s aside, 1 arty each, and the rest are mostly tier 8 and 7 heavies. Looking at the lineup I'm thinking that I'm going to have trouble because on Abbey, most of these tanks are going to be coming head on unless I can get a good flanking position in the middle... Right now my thought process is: East (0 line) is a bad idea. There'll probably be big, heavily armoured stuff slowly moving there, the Obj 704, T30, KV-5 etc. I won't be able to pen them, and I don't trust any of my teammates to get in position AND pen them. 6/7 line between Abbey and river road: Everyone expects someone YOLO'ing through here, so me running through isa bad idea. The odds of going there to spot an enemy coming through are too low when I could be elsewhere on the map. Abbey center (5 line): I wouldn't go Abbey with our team line up. Even with two other LTs, in a tier 9 match like this we'd need more than LTs, and I wouldn't expect our Lorr40t to go 3/4 line (low Abbey road): I usually never go here myself but I've seen people going here so... West (1 line): No point in my rushing here, we know they're going to send the bulk of their forces to brawl here, and so are (should) we As I expected, the T-54 being their top tier medium goes middle. I expected only the LTs to go with him, but he has an IS-6 and Tiger I up there as well. T30 as expected shows up East. We only have 3 tanks going West, which is worrying. Our T34 is going 6/7 line, I have no idea what he intends to do there. Our A-44s actually push middle, which I don't expect. I go 3/4 line and try to get side shots into the enemy tanks heading into the Abbey, but being unfamiliar with the area don't manage to get any. In hindsight I should probably have pushed up a bit more to the next intersection, but I was worried about being lit and hit by enemy tanks camping their base. Now I really don't know what to do. I go mill around the North of the Abbey just under the archways hoping I'm lighting up the tanks in the Abbey (probably not) so that our ISU-152 and T25 AT in base can hit them. I sit around here doing nothing for a while. Watching the replay I see our Type 62 got to a nice spot and managed to stay alive there. I sit around here humping the ledge, until eventually... Enemy IS, KV-4, Tiger I and RU 251 push through 3/4 line. I was expecting them to come through 1 line. Anyhow, I get free side shots on the IS, who tries to hide behind the KV-4 in vain. The KV-4 doesn't pay attention until RNG blesses me and I set him on fire twice in a row. The RU251 rushes past ignoring me and gets smacked by the ISU-152 just as I'm about to shoot him. The Tiger I knows I'm there and tries to take a pointless shot and misses. He's a one hit, so I pop out and kill him. The enemy KV-5 has finally gotten through 6 line, and I'm hoping he ignores me so I can shoot his R2D2. The T-54 finally shows up and kills me. I was wondering what took him so long, I was expecting this to happen much earlier. So, thanks to RNG I racked up 1465 damage (mostly due to double fire on KV-4) and a paltry 594 spotting damage. I felt like I contribute nothing to the match except farming some damage after 4 minutes of sitting with my thumb in my arse. Advice?
Hello everyone, First off: new user here on the forum so again I'm a complete newbie ... Also a little background: I'm not a big gamer. I found this WoT through a colleague that told me about it. We have fun playing together which is how I started off. So I don't have any first person shooting experience at all, nothing, seriously! Needless to say, the first 5k battles I really sucked. I even didn't know about ratings and stuff. I thought the extend of a rating was the "service record" tab in the game. So I had my 7 year old son play with my account as well. But the more I started playing, the more I started bouncing (I noticed), the more I started dying without doing anything, the more I started to wonder why ... Started reading forums, how-to's, learned about scouting, spotting, angling, weak spots, ... and a world opened up to me In those days, I played mostly hellcat and T49 (the T67 now) because I could actually do a little. And some lights as well. I'm proud to say I never went full "yolo" in the beginning of a battle and died in 30 seconds. I already learned quickly that it doesn't help to see the tanks in the beginning while you can't shoot, but not anymore after the team is actually in position. As a result, my light tanks (T50 & ELC mostly at the time were pretty good: 53 % WR). Then finally I get to the T-50-2. How much fun that tank will be, right? I played it 10 times over a period of a few days, so not back to back. I lost all 10 of them. Not just losing, getting raped. I decided then and there, "ok, I will play this tank until I win, then I will sell it and NEVER play it again". It took me another 7 battles. So my stats in the T-50-2 is 6 % WR (thank you WG, for that awesome "random" MM and RNG, sure thing) I'm sorry, but even an afk or even team killer doesn't get that kind of *%&é@!! Anyways, I like to think that since then I've been improving. I'll never be an EJ, but probably good enough to learn a little respect Still, I have major problems. After 16k battles, some maps I still don't know. Ensk for example is horrible, I always seem to get myself in the most ridicilous positions. OK, enough background, now for my question: With the new lights being introduced, I wanne start the American line. I have a 3 skill crew in it (grinded with the chaffee races) but need some help. I can adjust my tactics during the battle as it unfolds, but the first location where I need to go in my light tanks when the counter hits 0 is still often a mystery to me on some maps. On maps like Abbey, Ensk, Fishermans bay, Himmelsdorf, Karelia, Kharkov, Komarin, Murovanka, Northwest, Pearl river, Sacred valley, Tundra and Windstorm, where do I go first? Where can I help the team out best in the beginning? A kinda long first post, sorry about that. Thx for any help and feedback
title says it all. looking for a scout expert to go into a training room with to figure out spots/route tier 6 scouts can properly use on most maps. After 21k games, Im looking for a proper way to actually do scouting. As well, Id like to have some clarification and reinforcement on basics. Thats all. If (willing), PM me, else,echo "move on, and have fun in pubs."
