Lemming train goes west I go east all alone singing songs of death and destruction I wish I could rid myself of this self sacrifice but I like to try and help the team win.

Sometimes it's just better to go with the lemming train and lead the push. When you go alone the other way you'll die anyway.

Nah, better cover the weak flank, and hope that you can hold on the enemy for as long as possible, and press F7 repeatedly. Usually the lemming train gets through, it's just a matter if you can hold on. It's very hard to do it, but still not impossible.

And remember, the best games you'll ever play will be because of mass stupidity on your team's part.

Depends which tank you are driving. A heavily armored tank will last a lot longer than a puny paper tank. But I guess that's obvious...

Except when you suddenly realise the lemmings are all dead.

I am not going to one flank alone, forget it. If half of enemy team is about to jump out from behind the corner I don`t want to be there alone, dying will not help nobody.
But if they enter my cap situation is quite different, so many juicy exposed targets sitting there on the open and waiting for my loader to finish what he is doing!  :trollface:

If it's an all out lemmings and you're alone, I think it's best to go along with it for a while to make sure it gets through then turning back half-way to the base to make sure the enemy can't cap. Of course this depends on the map.. some maps give you a great advantage this way (abbey).... and also depends what you're driving of course... if you're in a T95, might as well just try to hold from afar  :tongue:

Good point.

I'm pretty sure no one ever gets an epic battle result unless their team fails in some way.

I never go to a flank alone unless I'm in OPkitty with binocs and camo net.

Going to to a flank alone serves no one but the enemy, better help the lemmings push through by setting a good example going in first.

So in short: Don't set an example of going to a flank alone, it will only show the lemmings how fast you die there, and they will never ever go there since staying alive-mentality is what causes the lemmingtrains. Rather go with the flow and lead the attack as mentioned above me if lemmingtrains are formed. Could also spot for the lemmings in maps allowing this as lemmings love to snipe :playing: Easy to pick them off in medium tanks afterwards if they've been lemminsniped for a while  :trollface:

All the Lemmings going one way means more xp and creds for me as I am the only one on the other side ;)

I held a flank alone in an SU-26 today, killed two before the opps figured it wasn't a trap and grew some balls.

We won.

N.B. I was pretty verbal in chat that if they were all going to go one flank and leave an arty to hold the other then they had to zerg rush and every time they stopped I would type helpful hints like PUSH and DONT STOP NOOBS into chat (long reload on arty  :smile: )

My E25 is awesome for that situation.  I made a video of it, comedy gold.

KV-4 is pretty good in holding choke-points and - with some luck and moderate amount of fire support - turn them into smoking scrapyards. Unless there are many tier 9 and 10 of course.

Always a tough choice to either follow the lemming train or vainly attempt to hold the flank somewhere. If im top tier and a decent hull down tank with the map in my favour I will consider it.

Well, what usually happens me and some 1-2 allies holding off 5 enemies, take a look at the minimap in some 3min and see the whole lemmingrain already dead, makes me want to just bang my head on the table - how do they always mange to do that...

Always, always, always go to the opposite flank to the lemming train.

You might die in a hurry but you might also die in a blaze of glory and save the day. You gotta try because, for sure, if nobody goes to that flank the enemy will stroll into your base and then either cap or give your lemming train some rear-pounding action.

I've laughed my head off many times having sailed through an entire flank unmolested to come up behind a dozen tanks pointing away from me. XP pinata!

It depends a lot on the tank. I have held the flank with the AT 2 a few times. If I am playing arty I try to support it. There is a lot os xp to be had when supporting a heavy who knows how to work with an arty at a choke point. If I am in a medium or TD. It depends a lot on the map.

Start a platoon with buddy - Select Pz. 1C with personal skins set to bright orange - Charge around the map shooting at anything that moves and making the enemy stop and chase you
