Advice for tier 8 solo? (Don't need to watch replay, just see summary on VBAddict)

Recommended Posts

Before I start, here's the battle simulater FAQ: http://www.vbaddict.net/content/63-Battle-Simulator-based-on-Replays 

You can even use it on your mobile phones! Please spare some time in looking at my replay overview >_<

 

 

I have been solo-ing tier 8 since my 300th battle (I was a greater burden back then than now), and have always suffered low winrates on that tier.

 

I'm currently at a plateau (stats not going up for a week, wr fell 0.2%), so I thought I'd post here. 

 

 

Here are some of my recent replays with not-completely fail teams (ones that die so fast I that I get flanked from 3 directions):

 

http://www.vbaddict.net/battlereport/isopach-sea-6ab10733f273f6ba48feef698c6d493e/lakeville-soviet-union-t-34-128032813262015666

JgPantherII, Lakeville: I made a fatal mistake in calculating JgPz4 reload and died early. If I didn't die maybe the outcome would have been different...

 

http://www.vbaddict.net/battlereport/isopach-sea-6ab10733f273f6ba48feef698c6d493e/live-oaks-soviet-union-t-34-140164154547999108

JgPanther II, Live Oaks: I didn't know whether returning to base to defend was good, or if I should have went closer to shoot the WZ-132. Either way, halfway back both flanks collapsed and we lost.

 

http://www.vbaddict.net/battlereport/isopach-sea-6ab10733f273f6ba48feef698c6d493e/malinovka-soviet-union-t-34-139202262262319731

JgPanther II, Malivoka: Should I have went up the hill? Did I camp in base too long? Where should I have gone? This was my nth lost in a row last night, where n is greater than 10, so I was very exasperated at the start of the match. Also, my client crashed halfway while camping in base, so the replay is cut by 3 min.

T69, Malinovka: Not sure if I should have gone up the hill, but I held on pretty long against 3-5 tanks trying to kill me, using ridge lines. What should I have done? The E1 went to kill himself by going over the ridge line several times, despite getting shot -.-

 

http://www.vbaddict.net/battlereport/isopach-sea-6ab10733f273f6ba48feef698c6d493e/highway-usa-t69-132974834561021484

T69, Highway: Team vaporised to a Ferdi, and I took too much damage at the start due to getting blocked from behind -.- Also, I failed to track ferdi on my last shot... Did I miss his tracks or did RNG troll me?

 

 

 

http://www.vbaddict.net/battlereport/isopach-sea-6ab10733f273f6ba48feef698c6d493e/severogorsk-soviet-union-t-34-86293565165071386

Tiger II, Severogorsk: I went up the opposite hill as usual, and died after getting overwhelmed. My Tiger II is sitting on a 28% WR at the moment; bought it a few days ago.

 

http://www.vbaddict.net/battlereport/isopach-sea-6ab10733f273f6ba48feef698c6d493e/cliff-soviet-union-t-34-83789058065627006

Tiger II, Cliff: I basically stayed under the hill as I was afraid of dying. Was I too passive? I couldn't pen the IS-7 and IS-3 facing me, even with gold (I think I did load gold). Did practically no damage (201) this battle and got carried.

 

http://www.vbaddict.net/battlereport/isopach-sea-6ab10733f273f6ba48feef698c6d493e/murovanka-soviet-union-t-34-84925609491362857

Tiger II, Murovanka: I was completely useless this match too, maybe I should have went into the forest and snipe? I was bottom tier with stock turret

 

 

 

http://www.vbaddict.net/battlereport/isopach-sea-6ab10733f273f6ba48feef698c6d493e/karelia-usa-t20-125769816468583492

T20, Karelia: I took a lot of damage at the start due to getting shot from the opposite cliff. Where should I have gone? I was mostly useless this match with a total damage of 444. This game was a victory

 

http://www.vbaddict.net/battlereport/isopach-sea-6ab10733f273f6ba48feef698c6d493e/cliff-soviet-union-t-34-115632203296299625

T20, Cliff: I thought I wasn't spotted at the start and didn't get into cover. Took a lot of damage for nothing too. Was mostly useless this game. Should I have gone to the donut? Or climb the hill? I got kinda angry when I took shots for nothing and the tanks behind didn't help. Was also on a 10+ loss streak that day. I admit I was too reckless for expecting support.

T26E4, Severogorsk: Was I too passive this match? I couldn't pen the E-75 and was only sniping the other SP whenever he turned his turret away (weakspot). Definitely didn't need to load gold but I did and wasted it.

 

http://www.vbaddict.net/battlereport/isopach-sea-6ab10733f273f6ba48feef698c6d493e/lakeville-soviet-union-t-34-106594982220141563

T26E4, Lakeville: I was pretty useless this match too, made 8 shots but only 1 or 2 dealt damage. Was I too aggressive?

 

 

 

http://www.vbaddict.net/battlereport/isopach-sea-6ab10733f273f6ba48feef698c6d493e/lakeville-soviet-union-t-34-195823310046207031

KV-5, Lakeville: HTs were sitting outside city and dying. At the end it was 3v3 I think. In hindsight I should have asked them to go a big round through city instead of valley. This game was a draw. Should I have went through city too? I had approx 2s left to shoot the last guy on their team, but I didn't have the gun depression (moved back too much) to do so.

 

 

Any feedback is much appreciated. Most of the above replays are losses. These matches were played in the past 2 days (except the last one).

Oh, looks like everyone forgot about this one. I'll look over it tomorrow.

Unfortunately, the Battle Simulator, while amazingly cool, does not really help assess gameplay, so i'm going to need to take the time to go through these individually..

• Camouflage Net on the JgPanthII is a mistake.

• Your complaint was moot, as all that was lost were a few bottom tiers.

• B9 is an ineffective spot.

• You don't position yourself near cover at D0.

• Maus and T54E1 push up, you did not support.

• After killing the T30, you still did not support the Maus.

• Once Maus died, city was lost. Retreat was an option.

http://www.vbaddict.net/battlereport/isopach-sea-6ab10733f273f6ba48feef698c6d493e/live-oaks-soviet-union-t-34-140164154547999108

• You don't push up against the weakened T32.

• Once the T32 died, you don't move up to support.

• G0 was an ineffective spot. Firing from the train tracks was an option.

• You spent way too much time occupied with the WZ-132.

• Once enemy controlled the hill, it was over.

So basically what i'm seeing is that you are not being aggressive enough, preferring instead to snipe.

This wouldn't be so much of a problem, if you were in better positions and also actually knew when to advance.

Thanks for the review! I almost gave up on this thread as it wasn't receiving any replies >.<

 

1) Hmm what should I put instead of camo net though? Current I have Vents/Rammer/Camo.

Also, didn't the 8.6 update buffed camo nets to automatically camo you 25 - 50m? I left it on because of that. 

I tried putting myself just behind the breakable fence around D0 aiming down the 0 lane before, but it didn't work out well when the enemy from there simply shoots at me... or should I be positioning there, waiting for the engagement to begin, before moving out of hard cover (house)?

 

 

2) By train tracks, do you mean peekaboo around H8? Given that I have poor camo, will I get spotted at that range?

 

3) Do you think a Jgpanther2 should go up the hill, in any situations? Or does staying down near the church grant more opportunities?

Rammer, GLD, Vent/Optic

Most tank camouflage is lost upon firing, rendering it useless.

No, you will not be spotted. Even if you were spotted, there's nothing nearby to shoot you.

They have good mediums. Their mediums are going to go hill. You need to be on hill to counter.

In any case, your team lacked enough firepower to counter a hill push anyways.

• Should have contested hill immediately.

• T69 makes a bad sniper.

• Shooting the T-54 was an option. So was retreating.

Everything seemed fine. Maybe you should have returned to base when IS-3 was first spotted. I don't know.
