I was like .... when I saw the matchup on Karelia map...

 

 

But then after I almost spit my guts out and after seeing our IS6 scout the middle, scouts snipe from base, T34 being afk for 10 minutes I was losing my sanity. 

 

... But then a miracle did happen 

Spoiler

 

In the end won by cap thanx to the M4 and by my two kills that were about to outcap us. 1 second and it would have been a draw!

 

Even if the MM throws you poo in the face and you are about to find the closest water to dive into, think about this thread!

 

PS: Borsig balanced

well done...

 

but honestly it's tier 8 matchmaking in the rhm borsig which in skilled hands is probably the most overpowered vehicle currently in the game.

these perfectly balanced german TDs are simply able to pull out results like that relatively easily. sometimes it's just not enough anyway...

There are too many WoT players who are ready to give up when the odds are against them- shameful display!  So it's a point worth making. I was just on the winning side in a battle- at the outset some feeble XVM baby said we'll lose, 33% chance- BS

I've to agree with the thread title. It's just plain epic when you manage to turn the tide to your favor even against all the odds. That means never giving up and fighting to the very end.

I had similar battle to yours.today. Being the top tier and my team consisted of tomatoes only. Ended up against 6 enemy tanks and still managed to win the battle, only because I didn't give up, even though the situation seemed more or less hopeless. Only because I didn't give up and go full yolo I managed to break my exp and kill record and also had one of the most epic battles so far.

If I had only been tracking the times that half the team whines ("lost", "noob team again", "another loss", "omg ketchup!" etc) having the xvm giving ~30% chance to win and being victorious at the end - sometimes with scores like 15-5... Having your best battles with such matchmakings, totally makes sense.

 

... Especially with that troll-camο Rhm =)

Well done lonigus! And yus, never give up, no matter how bad it looks at start! After all, you never know how the game will unfold. I do have to add, ignorance can be bliss, I don't have XVM, so I never know who's got the tomato players. I just assume we got the tomato's and the enemy the unicums :coin:

 

As an example for me, by an error of a platoonmate (3 man platoon), I landed my KV-4 (and my platoonmate's Type 59) into a battletier 12 game (Tier X tanks only, save for scouts that see battletier 12) Looked pretty hopeless for us, but decided to give it my best. In the end we won this match! By using the strengths of our vehicles (Type 59 kept the enemy WTF E-100 busy) and I sidescraped in town to tie up their scouts & meds (bonus, our WTF E-100 used me as cover, deadly combo).

Smart & careful play did make us win that game. After all, our team had 2 TX tanks less due to us, so we had to compensate their loss of good tanks with our skill.

Real men don´t post good matches in the forum fishing for compliments they just roam the harsh lands looking for the next fight to carry in silence.
