Do you see an increase in lights deserting when enemy has EBRs?

Why are more lights AFK or drowning themselfes when there is enemy EBRs?

Is there more camping when there is enemy EBRs?

 

Maybe its only in my games!

 

I myself, love EBR and drive into arty camps and just kill the basta***, and also just cirkling a shitty B-C 12 t autoaiming and pizz*** on him.

 

But i kinda regret spending so much money on light tanks, because i never drive them anymore. Its much more fun to ruin the gameplay for all you guyz, in my super pimped Wheelie. Just put improved equipment on you own wheelie and you can take a pi** on every body else.

Its great fun....and remember, this is what this game is all about.

 

PS. If you are looking for fun? - dont play the shitty homefront game.

Because people who drive lights have short little attention spans.

I guess it's too much to ask for evidence?  

 

As to quitting.  If you are smart enough to install the game, read and agree to the EULA, choose a tank and click battle.  You should be smart enough to know there is no gameplay based reason to quit.  Someone may know on the door etc.  But you know you may face Wheelies +2 tiers, specific tanks and maps, etc.  It's nobody's fault but your own if you don't like what you get.  Don't take a dump on the other people playing because you are not happy with the consequences of your choices.

I do not know why.

Because everybody knows WG balances the tanks fairly and perfectly.

Deserting, AFKing, drowning... Nope, haven't seen. Camping, well, let's say it nicely- when checking stats of exessive campers after match their WR tends to start with 4.

Speed is life. As such, as wheelchairs yolo into middle ground no one who stops to shoot has better chance of winning the game. Doesn't matter what you drive.

This.

A battle deserted is a battle wasted.

All you do is reduce your own exp, credit, winrate and wn8 scores.

Even your rushrating suffers from it.

Nope. But people still moan about 3 SPG if they are in a slow super heavy and say "bye". Can't say I've seen in about wheels.

Never seen it that either. If I am in a tracked light with 445m base view range. Wheels is not what I fear. 9 out 10 times I see him first for that to matter. Mines is the only map where that might be an issue, and what I might fear more.

Nope. More so then not his support is not as fast as him to get into position. And some spot too far in to get any good assist done more so then just show early intel. And some there again die with 8+ spots, but 200 assist. And if he active spots the middle of the map and appears now and then. Most of them are more blind then the medium next to them. So as long as my support guns are back far enough. It's usually not an issue vs a 13 90 doing the same with 445m +.

 

I've worked on my Italian 3 MOE today. I've feared the M44, more so then the EBR yoloing towards me. But... besides the tier 6 wheelie that is still common enough as such. I can't say I've seen many tier 8+ wheels of late for me to freak that much out about them anymore. Not seen a single tier 9 today. Did see 2 tier 8's.

I haven't seen this.

But OP suggests that LTs are giving up because of wheelies then admits he is part of the problem that he sees. Philosophically this is suggestive but as a proper Manc I'll just cut the crap and just call him a [edited].

But you've not got a wheelie showing on your account so should we assume this is all just the product of your fevered imagination?

I instareport anyone who deserts. It is dirty, detrimental to your team, lowers your stats as a whole, makes you look like an absolute muppet, and you get a report.

 

dunno about you, those are more cons than pros

Desert  ? Never,

But I have to admit to not always taking games seriously...

Back in the Pre 1.0 days the North Spawn on Cliff used to have a rock outcrop that if you hit it going fast enough at the right angle you could get your tank to do an aerial barrel roll... and I did spend the first few minutes of a few games trying to do this in games where I was a T4 LT in a T7 game... (Stuarts were good for this)

 

(and before you ask I haven't a replay that shows it !)
