Greetings fellow tankers! Love it or hate it, we all know that MM is a nightmare factory. Feel free to relate your horror stories here! Screenshots, videos and anecdotes are welcome.

 

Let me get the avalanche rumbling with the following abomination of man. Dismay must have affected the RNG, as I could not hit a bloody thing during my brief time alive. Not that it matters when you see who was coming my way. And this was in the desert (someone using a Matilda? engage desert map, hurr hurr) and yes, I was using the Bofors gun. TAKE THAT, WIN RATE!

 

 

Yes, that's right, the enemy team had FOUR Matildas. And what did we have to oppose this gathering of win? A pair of Valentine IIs, and two of the ever-popular M3 Lees. Exactly the kind of backup you need. I fled with a damaged gun and a wounded gunner, only to be gunned down by a Pz 1 C, as the rest of my team were simply steamrollered around me.

 

That's not going to be a 2500 WN8 game, then.

If you play a lot of Tier 3s, disable Encounter mode. You should see a little less Tier 4 games (don't know by how much but it should help)

M3 Lee is a deadly machine with a beast of a gun. If you can afford even a couple premium rounds you'll chew up two Matildas quicker than you can order a coffee at Starbucks.

M3 Lee is as good as wet toilet paper.....unless it's working that DPM unspotted. Then it's really gud

Because people often post their nightmare MM when it is against them: the opposite

T7, We drive a T7 OP toon, enemy has nothing that can counter it

Today I had a platoon of 44% 113's on top of my team, they managed to drive 400 meters between 2 of them. Their enemy counterpart was a 55% type 5 heavy platoon. I think that 15-1 was generous. No screenshot to prove it though, I was too busy crying in a corner.

I haven't played the Lee, although I did briefly own the Grant, its cousin which somehow slips under the radar of flames. My Grant blocked 147 hits (you read that right) in the same battle. Its gun was too inaccurate to be truly good, but could have sent a Matilda home with a thoroughly smacked bottom. However - the Matilda is much easier to use, it is generally more survivable than the Grant/Lee and would be what I'd rather be in.

Thank you for the Encounter tip -- the "special battles" can be infuriating - is this why I'm bottom tier 99% of the time?

I don't know about you. But I'm getting sick to death of invisible T10 lights just hiding & shooting everything & even when detected, you cant hit them because there so low profile, your more likely to hit the ground they're hiding behind. Completely unplayable against them.

 

That & playing the attacking side of an assault game & the enemy have just 2 arty left alive & your team have half a dozen tanks left alive. 5 minutes left on the clock & what do they do. They all camp, just sat waiting as if there's a whole team of enemy tanks. Complete & utterly useless & none of them respond to your comments. They're deliberately trying to lose, defective bots or bots that deliberately make you lose.

I remember when this game was about tactics & players!

Or just wolf pack in any decently fast tier 9 tank, and pick a flank where you all go, preferrably not a heavy brawling area. Kill everything you meet and push on.

 

T-54 or T-10 platoon ... pretty much guaranteed 65% winrates.

Due to the high number of Match Making, we want discussions to take place in the main pinned thread here.
