[NA] Patient0 | Bat Chatillon 25t | Solopub | 4k Average Damage

Recommended Posts

So I just got this tank recently and I've got to say, I'm loving it more than any other tank I've ever played (Sorry 62A never forget). I decided to go full tryhard mode this time in order to fully gauge my potential. I've found that I have some trouble winning games while soloing so I decided that all my bat chat games will be solo.

 

The purpose of this thread will be to document my Bat Chat experience and to help aspiring bat chat drivers improve.

 

I would love to hear your feedback and advice so I may further improve my game. I will try to answer questions as soon as possible. I may not be able to keep the dpg at 4k but I'll give it my best shot!

 

I will be using VBAddict in conjunction with Dropbox to record my replays

 

Here are the first 31 battles!

VBAddict Post Session Stats

I did not capture the first 11 battles but if I recall, VBAddict recorded a 56~% WR with 4500 WN8.

Weird how my session stats was only 4.5k WN8 and yet it records it as 4.9k?

About that, the function of an average is not necessarily equal to the average of a function.

 

Not the most impressive winrate I've ever seen, but considering that it's a BatChat in the corridor meta, I'd still say that it's damn impressive. It's leaps and bounds ahead of the 62% winrate crowd at least, and even more so in comparison to the 58% crowd.

 

The DPG though, that's REALLY nice. I'll make sure to watch some of the replays to see if I can learn anything, after I actually sleep!

It's hard to practice for those tense 1 on 3 situations because they're so few and far between. I often make stupid mistakes while trying to carry simply because of the "yolo" mood adrenaline puts you in. Once you start watching the replays, you'll easily see the mistakes.

Equipment and crew might help some people.

 

Wondering if you can sustain that damage without hurting WR.

Those are some impressive stats!!! Just got the batchat as well, and it is so much better than the russians I love (sry 62a I will always remember).  For me, when I solopub in the batchat I try to get an early aggressive position where I can bail easily but it is also hard for the enemy to dig me out.  Get off those early lights for the team so we know what to do countering it.  After that its basically making sure I have a full clip and watching.....waiting for some poor crippled tank for me to assassinate.  Usually I'll find some random ass tank behind their lines, dash in, clip him and bugger the fuck out before the enemy can react.  That's how I solo pub in the bat, it's worked pretty damn well so far, I actually prefer it to platoons......

 

Couple questions, do you run optics or vents on the bat? Also do you run coffee?  

 

I feel vents are better for me personally, would rather take 5% across the board than 10% in just vision only.  And I don't run coffee as standard but I have noticed it affect my turning speed in the bat significantly.  Just wanted to know what a Supercum loads out on his assassin tank :)

Optics always. You do not know how good the bat can play the vision game with it's superb camo and once combined with optics, the heavies won't know what hit them. I personally pick vert stab, vents, and optics. Gun laying drive IMO is not worth it because the aiming time is fine without it. The only time I would stop to aim would be if I were in camo. If I shoot on the move it would be up close in ranges of 20m so you wouldn't need to aim anyways.

The only loss in that session that surprises me is the Live Oaks one. The corridor meta really does shit on this tank, but not nearly as hard as the Leo 1. Have you caught yourself constantly looking at your remaining ammo a lot? I know that's the one thing about this tank that drives me insane.

Ammo capacity really is a problem on this tank. Because the gun itself is really derpy, I usually find myself doing about 6.5k dmg and then running out of ammo. Sometimes this isn't enough to carry games.

Here's why I think WR is luck. Kappa

Decided to call it after 2 losing streaks. MM is too unpredictable. Made a stupid mistake on Sand River thinking that I wasn't in the line of sight of the 183, and I get blapped for 1600 damage. I've discovered that I take too much time making decisions which costs me the game. Also, early game damage is a very important role the bat needs to perform with its clip potential.

Batchat is tricky as in that it's easy to drive away from an engagement to be able to snipe upon it and do damage, but sometimes I feel like you need to be in it to have a decisive influence on the battle.

It's easy to snipe 2 clips and pen maybe 5shots, but in that time you could also be doing things up front (spotting, options to finish off valuable targets rather than snipe a full health tank etc). I'm sure you know what you're doing but I'd love to see those loss replays *evil laugh*

Thanks for doing these, Bat is on my medium term shopping list and I'm really glad you're doing them in big batches with no cherry picking of the replays

 

Keep loading them and I'll keep downloading and appreciating

Somehow I missed replay link...

 

Malinovka: 

- I always rush the field first, the amount of early damage you can let your team do is ridiculous and totally determines flow of the battle.

- Nothing much you could've done that one after I think, the only other position I'd have taken is this one, in order to have lines of sight as the arrows indicate

I have never rushed field in my bat simply because I don't think it's maneuverable enough to dodge the shells. In addition I think RNG has too much influence on the field rush such that I would not take the chance of either being artied or tracked in the open.

 

As for why I backed out of that position, it's because hill was overrun at that point. When the enemy completely controls the hill, that position is useless. At this point the foch had moved so far back that he wouldn't be able to get shots at what I'm spotting. Also, I am taking my gun out of the game by spotting the enemies and I would much rather have my gun firing than the Foch's. If you watched the entire replay, you'd see that the T95 had moved through the swamp (F5) which would mean that it could easily spot me and take shots. I'll admit that since I am primarily a russian medium player that I still need work on spotting for my team. Hopefully I will correct these mistakes soon.

Friday afternoon too tired to play. Tried 3 games and realized how bad I was playing. Called it quits after 3 games.

So I held off my replays until now. This was because I was embarrassed by how shit the WR for the first session was. Anyways here it is.

This tank really is a beaut. Really pissed by the weekend teams. They don't listen to me AND they insult me for trying to give them advice. -_-

 

The second session Lakeville game was just shit. I asked my WT Pz4 to help me kill the Foch and in the middle of typing, I get artied. This is what I get for asking for help. Also hi Peanut!

 

I played the last 3 games of the first session tilt. I switched to a more aggressive playstyle in the second session which yielded better results. I'm up to 80 games now so I will play 20 more this week and take a break. Please don't hesitate to ask or advise.

 

PS please ignore my shit talk in the in-game chat. :P

Slowly bringing the WR up.

Not really focused this session. Was still able to pull off acceptable WR. VBAddict didn't record 3 games I had yesterday but I still included it in the replays. The games that I lost were because of me

Glad to see people using the bat to its full potential. :D

Final Games in the Bat.

Rip me. Wasn't able to keep that WN8 up. Still top damage on VBAddict at least.

I have completed my 100 games in that Bat. Here are the ending stats

LucsMDk.jpg?1

 

I will still probably post Batmobile replays, just not as frequently. Time to grind my 50 100!

 

My ending thoughts of the Bat Chat: Mobile beast. Basically able to rape most tanks in a one on one. In the hands of a skilled player, the bat will never disappoint. Its mobility allows it to out-damage farm any other tier 10 medium. The DPM is perfectly fine. With such a mobile autoloader, the bat can utilize its DPM much more so than a normal tank.

 

Final rating: 10/10

The Batchat became my favorite tank from the moment I got it as well.

Unfortunately I wasn't the most amazing player at the time and because of the hundreds and hundreds of games in the tank at that time it rises really slowly.

I'm also unable to give the exact stats for how I've been playing the tank lately but the average damage has gone up by 300 points and the win rate by 4% in the last ~300-400 games I believe.

 

In the short term however, I played sessions like these pretty much daily:

Which made me max out at:

100% APCR shells, normal repair kit and med kit with strong coffee.

Still need to play more games to get 3 marks. XP

For consumables, I think extinguisher is the best choice because I found that the bat gets set on fire from being shot from any direction.

Running HEAT gimps the batmobile so hard imo, tried running 1 mag when I first got the tank. It was so bad in the endgame sitting on 2 split drums of ammo, never again I tell you!

Hm, I'm about 300 battles in and never had any issues with fires.

 

Best solotank ever? 

Bchat is love.

Bchat is life.
