I would say a large proportion of the blame falls on aa guy doing 1100 damage at tier X

Well the 279es or chieftain didnt carry, or even do much, so whats the problem? You lost to their other tanks more...

I played T10 with my friends, and the enemy team had 279 e as well. 

Our team carried the whole game. I know that's it's strong indeed, but it's not something special or difficult to destroy if your teammates are good enough to actually play like a real team.

This is the drawback, when enemy make a platoon from OP tanks, but with 16545 battles behind you, you are surprised by such an enemy team...?

Otherwise it's not fair :)

...and would you be making a complaining post if the advantage was with you, and you had won.
 

Its random, craphappens, sometimes you get the rough end of the pineapple.

Quickly, take a photocopy of your phone's screen if you need to save something for posterity.

 

Being this technologically handicapped in 2019 makes me weep for humanity.

Ofcourse that isn't fair. That's why it's in the game like that.

TBH it doesn't matter that they had.

 

You had a Manticore.

Random: "proceeding, made, or occurring without definite aim, reason, or pattern"

Battle: "a hostile encounter or engagement between opposing military forces"

 

So yes, it seems fair.

 

Sometimes the OPd platoon will be on your team, other times it will be on the enemy team.

 

Now, if for some reason it wasn't random and the OPd platoon was always on the enemy team then yes, THAT would be unfair.

Well, if one team gets all the meta tanks and the other doesn't, it's a handicap from the start, I agree.

 

That being said, if your light doesn't do his job properly for instance it's another handicap.

 

So many cogs in the machine.

I remember this battle... :D Should be forbidden on EU Servers. They autopen you with HEAT and you bounce every shot with APCR.

It's quite telling IMO that you didn't sort the enemy team by XP or damage, because that would have show the TVP tops XP and is 2nd on damage, the Foch 155 has best damage and the EBR has 2nd best XP. 

 

So the 279es nor the Chieftain did not have a major impact on the game, the EBR, Foch and TVP did, looks like one light did it's job and the TVP and Foch took advantage of it. 

 

8 members of your team basically did one shot of damage, considering the 279es only did about 5k damage between them, they didn't cause that, your team being terrible did, all 3 of your lights failed, your arty did nothing, they are basically failures all the team. 

 

Also simple questions -

 

Can you get yourself a 279e? Yes.

Can you make a platoon? Yes.

 

Then it's fair. 

 

(BTW none of this takes away from the fact the 279e is OP as is the T95/FV4201, and both these tanks need nerfing but this result had very little do with those tanks being OP).

you assume a lot of things - the 3 279e and Chieftain have probably blocked strategic parts of the map without doing much damage or spotting. maybe they neutralized OP's team's strongest tanks while the EBR and the TVP farmed the rest.

 

only yesterday did I complete a battle on Malinovka where I only managed to get 2 shots off before my team won. Why did they win? I drove all the way around the southern side of the map without meeting ANY enemy. So my team knew the other team was badly positioned and won easily. I didn't get any XP for reporting 50% of the map being empty, although it was instrumental for victory.
