I must hang my head in shame after my last battle.

The battle was in Erlenberg. Things were going ok but not really in our favour, our flankers taking a bit of a doing. I was trying to help them out when I heard the siren sounding that the reds had entered the cap.
We were 3 or 4 to their 5 or 6 and they had 30% cap so I thought I should try and reduce that a bit to give us a chance.
I entered the cap expecting to light up a camouflaged enemy but couldn't find him anywhere. Seeing their total increasing to 80% I ran around like an idiot trying to find them.
With very few seconds of the game left, I noticed someone in chat saying "OMG"

Wondering why, it was only then that I realised we were playing a standard battle, not an encounter. The red and green caps in the mini map should have given that away :facepalmic:

I'm feeling suitably foolish right now.

done that myself a couple of times, driving along the water side and hit a bump. Wheeeeee, flys straight in the water to a chorus of "OMFG NOOB!"

Now I avoid the water side  :Smile_veryhappy:

Near the end of a game, in my low HP Lorraine, I charge towards the last enemy tank, that's starting to get swarmed by friendlies. See a green IS-8 taking a shot, I aim to drive outside him and unload into the bad guy. IS-8 starts backing up, and as I am at full speed I can't avoid him. Crash, bang, boom, I die. It was 14-0 at that point   :facepalmic:  :Smile_veryhappy: .

Had to email support to make sure he didn't go blue.

While in arty, fired a shot and moved back before I could get countered. Only problem was that behind me was a steep cliff and water. So after 2 shots fired suicided in the water. Fortunatly both shots were full hits.

Leaping off the bridge on Mountain Pass to avoid shots from two TDs, wasn't going too fast so the damage wasn't going to be too bad and...

...landed on a 20hp team-mate and killed him.

I was not impressed with myself on that one.

Felt like alt+F4ing out of shame after that.

Took my jpze100 for a spin and landed on malinovka with 5 arties per side. Then proceeded to drive up a bit using 3xR method, i looked over to my bros screen cuz he was like "watch this epic battle". Looked back and saw that i managed to drown at that lil pool next to base. It was so hard to convince my team i hadnt done it intentionally because of 5 arties per side and shitty map :P

I play a game where i get around 6 kills and a ton of damage, basically doing everything myself (Hellcat). We lose because some idiot doesn't want to move from his camp spot to reset their cap. Next game i play Hellcat again, i write in chat "you guys better not suck as the last team", as i'm typing i drive the thing into water and drown.... Yeah....

I was playing the lend lease Churchill on Sigfried Line when another Churchill came from the right and parked sideways about 50 meters ahead of me. I started firing and pumped shot after shot into his side with my rapid firing machine gun. I kept thinking to myself what a fool this Churchill player was that decided to park his tank at a 90 degree angle in front of me, totally disregarding me shooting into his flank. After a while I finished him off and my crew told me "That was one of ours!". Whoops! I hadn't noticed that the outline around the Churchill was in fact green and not red. Turns out that I massacred a friendly. Huge embarrassment moment

My plt mate and me were top guns in team, i played the T30 he the IS4 (tier 9 then). Map was siegfried line and we spotted an enemy E75 in city. I aimed started to zoom in and exactly when i fired he pushed forward to get a shot on the enemy. I one shot him with a well placed shot in ammorack i guess....not very popular in team and my first shot in battle :)

Last night on the Abbey map.

Was moving along the right hand side, when my daughter asked me a question. After quickly turning to answer her, I looked back at the screen to see that I had veered off the track.

Now it would have been bad enough if I had then just gone into the water and drowned my crew, but no, this idiot of a tank driver had to pick a spot where there was a rock to stop that happening, but the steepness of the bank, meant I couldnt reverse out. So within 30 seconds of the game starting that was me out.

I then had to put up with a number of comments as members of my team filed passed, to go up north ( to the guy in the Valentine, you kept me interested in a game that I had no involvement in), which was then quickly followed by the opposing team filing passed after they had wiped out my team mates.

Guess the one consolation would be that I was last man standing for my team :Smile_veryhappy:

I rushed forward on Steppes in my JP2 to get to a cover point asap for the valley, only to have a chorus of "WTF are you doing arty" type chat come up, I then checked and I was actually in my gwpanther (now with an enemy scout on the other side of the rock), oops.

I've tried to cap in my own base once to, I don't know what I was thinking (other than wtf is this buggy crap, why hasn't the cap counter started), I kept driving in and out of the cap area in case I was lagging or something - took me a couple of minutes to realise doh

I reversed into a lake yesterday to whilst desperately trying to back up for the reload of my T69, fortunately the battle was already well lost by then

Mountain Pass, pushing forward across the bridge whilst under fire, firing whilst zoomed in, heroically taking the fight to the 3 enemies on the other side... fall off the bridge.

Malinovka, defending in an assault game, we have the attackers licked and are swarming down the hill to finish them off, i spot the highest stat enemy player sat in the bush on the edge of the cliff above the lake and aim to ram him unceremoniously into the lake muhahaha.... my Luchs is a bouncy thing though and i hurtle past missing him and fly headlong into the lake

When in Lakeville driving my JT through the valley and thought that my armor will keep me safe when I take a peak over the top. Well, it did not. I felt like a complete idiot and apologized to my team for acting like one.

My worst has to be defense on Kampincova. I was in my cromwell and started charging towards the church to take up a spotting position. I was feeling in a pretty fun mood so I decided to cut the corner and do a bit of a jump. Unfortunately I forgot about the big rock that's there and so ended up killing myself 10 seconds into the match.

Other than that I have twice got myself stuck on the dragons teeth at siegfried line. the second time when the enemy came back to kill me, the first was a low HP M18 who must of assumed that I was AFK. and so charged and got 1 shotted :)
