For Slo3 with his T50-2 he didn't killed the IS7 ,the T10 tank is destroyed before he shot ! And as i hear ,the sound when the IS7 is destroyed isn't a 57mm sound ,it's more a 128mm !
Congrats to the winners too !

I didn't see anything special. The last one may deserved it, but the first too were pretty useless.

muhahah! What a fail.

Blopap failed to kill the T30. The T30 was dead BEFORE he shot...

WG should take better care of what Videos they are announcing.

This video is poor.. We cant see any damage done, we cant see who did damage, we cant see the shiny little golden text that proves that the lil tanks destroyed the big heavies.

Actually he killed the Tier X, same as all others - the shot-hit sync may be off slightly because of the Replay system peculiarities (you can notice several times that the tank icon flashes before the shot graphic is played.

EDIT: As for the video, it is not intended to be a "proof" of killing Tier X with Tier V Light - all proof there was needed for the winners to be determined was contained in the replay, the point of this video is to make a short review of some of the winning actions.
And number of shots landed on target was not the only measure - for example Black_Gold_Saw showed nicely the agility of his M24 while running through the packed battlefield chokepoint, Blopap in turn played nice hide-and-seek with the T30. Of course slo3's dance around IS pair was epic.

Maybe more than 90% is arty damage :)

I don't want to diss the respective players but I just can't see anything special in this vid. A paper hull T-30 cought alone by a T50-2, wow that needs impressive skills..... a chaffee getting the killshot on a mouse that was swamped with enemys and would have died anyway..... and another T50-2 running around a pair of tanks blocking each other more then anything, which where under fire from several directions.....

So what was the point of this? Other then getting a lot of light tanks to die trying to kill a T10 tank while neglecting their other roles.....

By scraping the sides of an E-75?


, Blopap in turn played nice hide-and-seek with the T30.

Hiding behind a rock till you can get the killshot on a tank is hide-and-seek now?


Of course slo3's dance around IS pair was epic.

So epic he was three times in front of their guns and could have died every time?


Again no flame against the players in the vid, for all I know they could be the best light players there are, it just doesn't show in the vids. I Just see it as a hughe waste of time.

I thought the competition was "David Vs Goliath".

Not "David and all his mates Vs Goliath"

Good light tank drivers often make all the difference in clan wars battles for their clan, they don't need appreciation from some random dudes.

For all you guys who say it is easy - try it yourself and show us your replays.

In my experience, light tanks rarely even live long enough to do any damage, especially when put against tier X tanks. Let alone to get such a kill.

The contest was for "killed". No matter how, and how much dmg done.
