OK some of them not exactly steamrolls but pretty bad All losses in chronological order.

Take what you will from this - just felt like doing this.

First couple of games were written after the fact - rest are as post is being written.

How did I know the steamrolls were coming? Not sure. Can't put my finger on it - just a feeling.

 

Games:

 

1. Paris -

North sie of map 1x light and 1 x medium on enemy team manage to wipe out out 3 mediums and a heavy.

South of map all heavies wiped out - I mean like a knife through butter.

other meds / TDs not affecting battle camping in middle just waiting to die.

Its games like these that really make me wonder if RNG is side dependent.

Game ended 6-0 but was over way before that. Looks like people just hiding and hoping thewy get killed last.

 

2. Pilsen -

Nobody on North or defending main warehouse - they just rolled right through kelling all campers at the back and pincering on rest in south warehouses.

This makes me wonder if anyone even tries to play like a team - or were they all just following lemming train / heavies south and hoping they get killed last? lol

OK game ended 7-0 but it was never going to end well and this 'tactic' of bedding in and being last to die is just retarded.

 

3. Winter Himmesldorf -

Game ends 14-0. Where to begin....

No-one on 7 line. They just ran straight through behind everyone on hill.

Nor sure what was happening on one line but looked like everyone hiding behind buildings while ONE light tank bullied them all.

This was over in a couple of minutes. I really understand why people think there are bots everywhere - pretty sure myself just really bad players probably just watching netflix while farming XP?

 

4. Sacred Valley -

For some reason only one or 2 tanks went to village south east.

rolled right through and killed everyone when they swept in behind.. Game lasted anout 4 minutes and ended 9-0

Heavies and TDs on NW just seamed to be taking cover while other side was aggressive and destroyed them easily.

They were working together in packs - our team just seamed to be ignorant that a map exist.

 

5. Overlord.

No-one on 9 line. They just pushed straight through north to south and came in behind again.

What is it? is there some new WN* rating where last do die gives you a boost - as long as team loses? lol

For some reason about 8 mediums went to G6 and just kind of camped there.

KV-2 and Wz-131 only tanks on beach held at bay by a single Chi-To. After a few minutes they kind of realised he couldnt kill both of them at once and then took aaaaaggeesss to get rid of him due to neither wanting to commit.

Game ended 12-0.

 

So thats 5 games in a row - all losses and all easy for the enemy team.

 

This IS the current state of the game in randoms.  So lets carry on.......

 

6. Westfield - VICTORY!!!

At last a win. Everyone on North West wiped out pretty quick but meds and lights managed to keep it together and won the east.

Also managed to complete a missionwith honors - though tbh have been trying this for the last 6 games.

 

Hmmmmm.... maybe just one more.....

 

Aaaaaand defeat

7. El Halluf

9-0 defeat but not exaclty what I would call a steamroll. Just normal loss.

Lights and meds came in from south east and finished of the heavies and TDs from behind at NW corner.

Enemy teams heavies all stuck together and played peek aboo quite well so nothing to see here really.

Only issue were the meds who on seeing a few killed on the east decided to run away and hide, where they would have capably held back the oncoming tanks long enough I believe for the NW to have a better chance but  ...we all make mistakes.

 

K last one (I hope)

 

8. Stalingrad

Oh dear  ... 9-0 defeat.

They just came down the west of the map and decimated the team completely.

Only player who seemed to pull his weight in a Type 59

Pretty abysmal performance. Its almost like they are playing a different game to the other team.

 

9. Steppes - Victory!!!

...through capping.

They came down the east side and decimated it. Really thought this might be another steamroll but luckily our guys held cap.

Really could have swung either way but just goes to show - If those on cap had decided they wanted damage instead would have been a loss. Only takes 2 or 3 somethimes to win the game.

 

Ending on a nice round number..

 

10. Ruinberg Victory

 

Won 6-1 through capping.

Actually felt like a normal game so nothing to see here.

Lasted quite a fe minutes.

 

Just maybe I'll get a few good ones now    ......Damn did that sound like a gambling addict??

You forgot the first question:

 

Am I to blame for the steamrolls or is it my team?

Team: It must be team, go to next question.

Me: No, cannot be me, go to next question.

Love the intelligent insight. So one arty piece on one team decides on the win or loss?

 

Keep em coming bud ;)

Did the arty focus the right tanks or did he xvm focus the good player? Or maybe he only played for damage?

I feel your pain, 3 1/3 years here and it's never been like the last 2 months for steamroll games. The reasons 90% of the time.... dull teams all going 1 way at the start, minimap, what's that!, selfish point scoring when the game could be saved. I'm only still here for the 1 game in 200 where it's a close match (win or lose) but the 4 min games where 8 of your team do 0 dam are grinding all the fun out of this once great game.

Yesterday I had a 14:15 match that I unfortunately lost. :medal:

So they're still around.

Don't give up hope of getting one yourself!

I am playing for five years, and really it is getting worse and worse.

What I have noticed: There is a challenge among red sh1tters: who dies first within the first minute. Really, just look how many people dying within minutes (and I am talking about tier 7+ games).

No matter how well u perform: u cannot win against your own "team".

I believe this guy is implying that your generic unicum is statpadding in low tier...... It's not like there's infographics in the game which will show which tier was played the most.

So far I managed to be in the winning team >10% more than you but off course the game is rigged in my favor and it has nothing to do with my contribution to the winning games...

I asked my brother (the animal) and he still confirms. Buying a Fort Knox gives you an instant 65% WR by default. If you're good you can even bump it higher.

It seems you have to buy it for every battle you want to win. It gets way too expensive for me.
