Today, we have picked another Epic Battle to highlight.  Being Epic is not always about how many enemies you destroy, but how you go about playing.  Watch for yourself!

The Russian replay vids are a lot more interesting (you dont need to know Russian, just the game in order to watch em):

Still, a decent battle, though ive seen more exciting ones.

As written before, average battle, only 100% hits make it worth mentioning, so strange pick out of quite many nice replays in the thread.

Specially since there are 2 clear errors in the play. (hard to check more because of the constant camera changes and missing overhead markers every now and then)

1. Passing by the JP and getting shot unnecessarily just to kill arty fast, GWP aint that much of a threat to anything in tier 10 battle on himmelsdorf and disposing off that JP at close range would have been easy. At the same time he could use it as cover from getting shot at by that arty.

2. Entering a mid-range sniping contest with E75. Again it's hard to see which way the E75 was turned, but even if it was completely sideways the 13-90 still has issues reliably penetrating the sides and at that range it takes quite a while to aim at them too. At the same time only luck makes the E75 shot detrack him instead of killing him

Not saying that I'm better all the time or anything like that, just that this looks like average battle for quite a large number of players. Compared to the previously picked one this is a downturn.

It is commendable to achieve 2333ish xp on this little tank, and get all shots in.

However, he managed to outturn that jpanther and he didnt go around it and keep the jp between him and the arti (worse case if the arti didnt go at the corner)
So, yes tactical mistake there.

I was lucky enough to have better matches with my patton although i can't say i am an awesome player, many times, i have thought of the team instead of my scores , which is not a good idea for random battles,

anyway

gg on the 27/27 shots and the 2333 xp ^^

Totally agree. Very clear and very painful error at the very beginning. If it were me I would just park right next to JP to block his turn and then rape his side... just as I do in my 13 90 with every turretless TD/SPG I meet 1/1.

At the same time only luck makes the E75 shot detrack him instead of killing him

And again you spotted the same big mistake - standing right in the open to engage E75 head on... brave but really necessary? In this tank?

One more mistake - who the hell takes HE ammo on 13 90? With his speeed and manouverability to flank opponents, with his penetration, with need to reload whole clip (half a minute) to have HE rounds...

Only amount of damage dealt to high tiers have given so much XP, but considering the mistakes and movements - this is really an average battle, from skills shown perspective.

Nothing special. Just a proof that OP 13 90 remains OP and some of his enemies were obviously  Removed ! .

Sry but this made me so MAD, you are asking us to post videos when you are unable to make them work in future game versions??? I dont use multiply question mark normaly but this is just crazy. I have battle with T50-2 for about 2890xp premium no double and i would have to install another version of wot to play it... This topic has my daily minus.

It's truly amazing how EU community people REALLY have no skills.

Last time they posted this stuff, EVERYONE said, don't post it without a HUD. WG said, next time we'll do WITH a HUD enabled.

And now they post an average battle + no HUD often in the battle.

Bad editing. Not exciting. Hard to watch.
The RU movies are far better.

I agree. This is about nothing. By the way. From that stupid mods start in 7.4 I have not had classic Himmelsdors battle just encounter.

I HATE THE MODS !!!

nice enough battle it shows how to use the tank and how to not ot make most errors.

not much for many of use to learn but a asset for new player wondering why they cant make the transition between lower tiers to higher ones.

as such normal battle to lucky battle for most good learning tool for those that dont fit that bill.

Funny how many states "i've had better battles" or similar when their stats tell they average 400-600xp, and most players have just a slightly higher (or actually LESS) high-score than the person in the video. I wonder how many players with thousands of battles achieve +2600xp battles on a constant basis. If this actually were true, their average-xp/battle would be so much higher.

AND...

It is oh so pointless to say "doh, i've had more epic battles than this" or "stupid game that doesn't allow old videos".

1. If you don't POST videos you won't be able for selection.
2. No-one cares if u had ONE awesome battle (in +5k battles) last year. Also see 1.
