This game can still be fun :-) 

I have just finished a game in which a won ace tanker medal in my E75 after very brave play. Nothing epic, but funny thing is that the whole game I was under the impression of playing VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. A!! I was switching tanks, and I though that I have chosen n VK 45.02 instead of E 75.

If someone doesn't know, VK 45.02 is mediocre VIII german heavy with not so good armour. So, you can imagine surprise on my face when I was ricocheting shot after shot. I though, "this VK 45.02 is much better tank than I thought" :-)

Only at the end I saw what I was driving.

 

So, does it happens to you sometimes. Usually I see at the beginning of the game that I have mistakenly taken the wrong tank, but I think this is the first game I was drving the wrong tank in my mind :-)

 

The game is here

You need to keep your wits about you with Chinese light and medium tanks, they all look alike and in swapping crews over I've started battles in a tank I didn't want to. I suppose the ultimate example of mistaken identity was when DezGamez broadcast the time he mistakenly bought the 121 instead of the WZ-132-1, ouch!

I have on occasion clicked an artillery piece ( pre stun era) and gone charging to a flank.

Play the Swedish TDs quite a lot. Lost count of times I try to switch to siege mode only to find there is no siege mode on Russian tanks...

I played the Pudel but I thought I was playing VK 30.02 M which is hilarious because these two tanks are so different.

I've done that quite a few times since the start of the month tbh


With the Chinese heavy being the TOTT I was at the type 58, unlocked the IS2 and was taking advantage of the extra crew training whilst earning the XP for the tier 7 medium


But with constantly flipping between them I had a couple of times where I went bravely off to have a face to face 1 vs 1 battle with something like a T29 only to realise after I blew up almost instantly that I was in the Type 58 rather than the IS2 lol


The only other time I can recall doing it was in the low tiers when I took out an arty by accident thinking it was the TD then spent the whole game wondering why my zoom wasn't working properly :)


Blonds eh? What ya gonna do ;p;

Well i did confuse playing the T-54 when in fact i was playing the T-54 ltwt...didn't realize why it was so fast at first then i saw that i did less damage per shot and that i was not where i should be. Didn't matter anyway since i was alone at that spot as usual but could withdraw thanks to the speed.

When the lights were first given normal MM I charged past a T110E4 in my T49 expecting a catastrophic 900+ hit on his rear end...I raged like hell when I only hit him for 230....forgot I'd changed the guns...

I took out my ARL 44 earlier, and thought it was a rather large looking Chinese TD!

Also premium WZ-111 and the regular WZ-111 5A look almost identical, i have tried a few times to join tier 10 CW in the T8 premium WZ...

 I bought the FV215B last month, took it out and wonder how the hell I hit a tank for 1100 odd, turned out I took the FV215B 183 instead :/

Comet & Cromwell.. WZ-131, type 62, WZ-132...  ISU-152 & SU-152  with stock derp gun.. you enter battle and then think why i am suddenly matched to tier 9/10 tanks in a cromwell. Anything wrong with MM..

 

I even started applying all different camo's on the chinese line in order to avoid this from happening..

I swear my T-34-1 is smaller than my WZ 132.
