Up until very recently I have loathed suiciders.

Today that has changed.

300% Crew Reserve Activated.

300% Free XP Reserve Activated.

50% Silver Reserve Activated. .

So, I'm on the receiving end of another whooping (0-7 in less than 3 mins) - every shell is missing by a mile at 8000 silver a pop and I'm sat there thinking why?

Why am I wasting my time on this game?

Reserves have limited time available and I'm wasting them flogging a dead horse, so I throw myself off a cliff.

I felt dirty.

It wasn't out of spite towards my enemy - none of this 'ha you're not getting me pal' - it was all about not wasting precious time & resources in the fruitless pursuit of an un-tamed anatidae.

Three games later, I did it again.

Now, I have called suiciders cowards in the past and berated them accordingly in game & on the forums but, today I understand where you are coming from.

And, as of right now I declare myself an apocalyptic hypocrite.

It's karma for any account that's been banned for teamkilling.

If you have reservs on, you should use mostly first line tanks, that are useful at game start. If the game is bad, you will die quite fast and quickly start a new one. So would say HTs and first line MTs are the best.

Traditionally, I have reserves on most of the time (got so many of the bloody things) but this was one of those moments when I was trying to power-grind a couple of tanks & boost arty crews.

Guess that the problem is more on the tank frustrating you than on the battle results... ;)

Possibly a lethal combination of them both - first game I was in one of my favourites - M53/M55.

Pls don't suicide. No honor in that. Go down guns blazing! Wait for them to come at you and smack one last shell into them.

I've only killed myself accidentally, never ever intentionally. I don't care how bad a run of games it  is, or how frustrating it gets, suiciding is just a bad example to set on a moral level, not only to other players, but to yourself as it's the start of a long decline. If you can't hack it with multi player games and hold up your end of the deal just don't play.

I guess it's my fault for activating those high-end reserves in the first place:(

Cue much frustration:angry:

IMO, it should be handled just like team damage. Accidents happen but if you overdo it you take an hour to cool off.

I also usually have them activated when I play. But as you say, we got so many of those, so just activate and forget them. Play normal. No tryharding. That's where I do mistakes, because I want maximum out of the boosters. Most often I end up looking like an idiot.

If I'm being honest with myself it is likely due to frustration at not being able to take full advantage of the credit reserves - soon the GW E100 will be mine, but first there needs to be enough silver in the bank;)

You shouldn't feel bad.

At least you're not like the hypocrites who want arty out - and are quite vocal about them - while having thousands of battles in them.

I did feel bad - I've given suiciders so much grief in the past that it's a complete betrayal of my principals to follow their lead:(

You are 100% correct about arty hypocrites tho ;)
