yeah this is pretty unfair that the double barrels can do this while everyone has to rely on teammates having a brain and realising they need to help a brother out.. otherwise its leave the game early (which is bad cos you MAY get flipped back over when youve already left as it doesnt count as deserting, meaning your team is down one tank due to a stupid mechanic, regardless of its "REALISM" ) or sit there til the end doing literally nothing but spectating

...now?

 

Right. Have you tried double shooting to the back of the tank while moving forward?

9 out 10 times when I ignore muppets like that. It's not to be rude. Either I lack weight to get you back up. Like my 12t did a few days ago vs a T-150 I could not nudge. Or it's just that I don't feel like getting killed trying to get to you. As you might be safe, but lanes I have to cross are not. As today I had a VK 30.01 P flip on the far side of Overlord, and we lost 2 guns trying to move and help him that crossed the open. And before that, I had an E25 flip on the roof. That's not an easy tank to get back around again unless your hull is low on the ground. I knew that's a time waster and drove right past him. Everyone else did stop to help. The result? We had no guns to cover the 1 lane on Abbey, as they all wasted time trying to get one gun back in, by taking 4 guns out. By the time they made it, the enemy had flanked the 1 lane and started to fire on them.

 

So no... I don't ignore most because I'm brainless. I just don't feel it's worth losing a gun over it always. Or waste time trying to flip you when I lack weight or have the right hull to flip you back up.

Those falcon heavy twin landings are awesome, as are the ship ones when they get it right. It's like all that sf stuff from my childhood come to life. Sorry totally ot, as you were.

But srsly people meme about IS3A, when Obj703 is a far superior tank and much more fun to play.

 

WG should just give same option to all tanks: They could flip back with the gun recoil.

its obvious a tank like a VK30.01P cant be flipped easily by something like an M5 stuart, however 9 of 10 times youre teammates who CAN get to you without getting shot and CAN flip you back over... WONT. thats my point, just last night my Emil II flipped over and 2 STRVs just drove straight past when they couldve flipped me back over with complete safety and could easily have done so. instead our Lorr 155 tier 8 arty decided to do as it was getting to a point where we needed my Emil at full HP, the arty did it manage to flip me back over just in time before the enemy Emil II suddenly showed up round the corner and killed our arty. we lost a decent arty player cos 2 teammates who coulda helped easily and safely, DIDNT. it was a good thing i didnt leave that battle halfway through either cos i happened to save us from losing as the enemy Emil II and T30 wouldve killed everyone and feasted on my disconnected corpse. flipped tanks plus inconsiderate and lazy selfish players is a recipe for defeat in some cases. meaning the entire teams suffers due to the laziness of 1 or 2 players, and its not everyones fault who gets flipped... when you can easily flip yourself against some buildings as for some reason the walls act like ramps

The IS-3A is a trash tank lmao. That autoreloader is just a gimmick. Everything else about it is just terrible.

To be fair, though: ninety percent of the flipped teammates seem utterly incapable of actually typing "I am flipped" and instead just keep pinging with no useful info. Letting the team know you are flipped usually means at least one person comes to check if they can do something.

Well the majority of EU players aren't english speaking. There should be a "I'm flipped" button on the F9 key or something so it's translated to whatever language the rest of the team understands.

5625 battles isnt much but you should know by now that typing most things in chat get completely ignored, especially when a lot of players have chat disabled. pinging the map and requesting "Help" or "Follow me", at least gets displayed in their language on their client. and like 24doom24 said, a lot dont speak english anyway, so its pointless trying to communicate in chat unless you can say "help i am flipped" in every EU language....

The Emil didn't flip over. You did.

The arty was not lost because of those that didn't help you, it was lost because it helped you.

Own your responsibility instead of twisting facts.

Yes, it's trash tank and that's why you have 63% WR in - better than every other tier 8 heavy you own, including Defender... Nice meme.

But I have a higher DPG and WN8 in my SU-14-2 and E75 TS. Are those OP too? :trollface:

 

My SP has a 68% WR. That's clearly a game breaking tank! :teethhappy: Hell, my revs on a whopping 100%!

Oh wow.

If I ever find myself in an unfortunate situation with a double barreled tank, I'll know what to do.

Sad that a single barrel shot won't do the same. Would be a nice feature.

But then again, I should just learn to drive.

As long as WG keep the soapstone and wallclimb physics I will never blame anyone for flipping themselves.
