Killing a little time before heading off to a family lunch, I picked up a Steel Wall (and a Cool-Headed) in a game a minute ago in which my tank survived despite being hit 145 times.

Is this a record?

Merry Christmas all

Depends a lot on the tier, imo.

Getting hit 150 times in a tier 3? Easy-peasy with all those machineguns.

Getting hit 150 times in a tier 10? Mightily impressive.

As a Christmas quiz I will throw it open to anyone who wants to guess what my tank was and what enemy tank was doing most of the shooting at me.

Hint: No, it wasn't a high tier game

Since it's you bulldog I'll just take a wild stab that you've played KV-220. Am I close?

It's fun when they throw everything AND the kitchen sink at you and still bounce isn't it.

But yeah I have to side with cro on this one. It's probably the kv 220

Nice tries, but not this time.

I'll give another hint - I was in a Light tank

Nah, that'd be too easy: AMX 40?

All I know it must be a low tier since it's you, so some kind of seal clubbing at tier 2-4. You dirty dog

Surviving 150 shots is quite something. Considering high volume autoloaders got removed form high tiers, I do suspect a low tier game.

 

My guess on that Steel Wall: The tier 4 german HT DW 2 (durbruchtswagen 2 or something) due to Abbey as that match only is seen if you got tier 4 tanks (or higher) in the match. Or the premium variant of it, the B2 prem T4 HT.

This would have been my guess too.

Given the tanks you played recently according to noobmeter and my own experiences I would guess the H35. And if not that one then it was the AMX 38.

We have a winner (although looking it up on Noobmeter is a bit naughty, given that I only played 3 games today).

It was indeed an H35, facing off alone against a ferocious and deadly 3 pronged attack, surrounded by a Gendron, a TKS and a Light VIC

In an heroic effort, the H35 killed the TKS and VIC, and crippled the Gendron

You have to admire the VIC player for persistence, if nothing else.

Not war, perhaps, but how sublime!  And a good example of why I find low tier games fun
