What is even better is that when you have the enemy team lit up and your "teammates" are unable to land a single hit!(And i dont mean with an EBR right at the start of the match when no1 is in position to shoot!)

i like the scouts that B-Line it to the enemy spawn game starts and die instantly then rage ping the map and yell mean words as no one shot the enemy. because everyone is Still moving to their fav bush :)

or the scouts that sit next to me like ArsenalTank already said.

 

what i find most annoying is when players ask me to ''go spot'' when i am at the edge of their render range. even if i would spot anything they would not be able to shoot at it.

 

over time i've given myself a rule that i obey.

my tank, my rules.

has worked out so far. :)

Unless you play like "Steves" personal [edited] ingame you get flamed / clicked and stunned by your own skyfilth when you actually find a tank you can circle and kill or die spotting 3/4 of the enemy team when your own is still sitting in base playing hide the long pipe that shoots.

Why bother playing them when the most of the playerbase is too dumb to know that (they're scout knows what he's at) and they are getting spoonfed and failing miserably at it.

It's always the 46%ers who complain about light tanks not suiciding, I've noticed.

HTs get crushed by arty.

 

TDs are just camping.

 

LTs get abuse no matter what they actually do.

 

So I play fast Mediums... Can act in the Scouting role anyway and they have better guns than LTs.

It's still a mystery how an EBR 105 with armour thinner than a tier 3 Valentine, can absorb tier 10 shots like a Maus. I mean, seriously?? I got a lot of stick for wanting the WT Auf E100 back because people said it was broken. Well, how is the EBRs any different? if anything, they're more devastating to the enemy team & when you do manage to hit one, it does nothing but critical. And people say aim higher, sure aiming is a luxury we all have with EBR's. And if rubber is such a shot absorber. I would like the option to coat my tanks with rubber.

Then you have the T49's with the derp gun that only needs to shoot the ground next to you to damage modules & cause damage. I mean is this what this games about now? Rewarding the failure of actually hitting the target by saying, it's OK, we'll help you so you only have to get close.

Because it doesnt?A Maus usually bounces shots due to its armor.With an EBR you are hitting external modules.One would assume that someone would understand that its not the caliber/tier of the gun that is calculated only when shooting someone after 15k battles.

One would assume you got the terminology of what I was getting at without trying to be clever & become factual. And hitting external modules can also deal damage as well as damaging the modules. Hence why hitting the front track side on of a tank will keep the tracks disabled & keep on dealing damage. And what would you know about 15k battles? Still bitter about losing your main account?

You must be the life & soul of a party. That's sarcasm by the way, just in case you try & break that comment apart & get all scientific on the meanings of every word!

VsUK still makes the most absolutely useless, baseless rants that don't belong to the thread at hand.


Some things truly never change.

I wish I could turn the chat off for players with below 48% win rate. I am simply not interested in what they have to say and would rather ignore "REPORT LIGHT 4 NO SPOT!11" "IDIOT TEAM" then see their blood red stats post game with 30k battles.

There is a difference between "not suicide scouting" and "not scouting".

 

What were you doing in your light tank *AND* could you have done useful spotting instead for your team, that is the question.

 

Disabling chat does not fix the issue if the above line is true, so with this minimal one-sided information, it's impossible to help you with your problem.

Play the stv103b with binocs. You can scout just as good with added bonus of not getting constantly pinged on the map and you also get to farm the other team at the end of the game.

LT's are absolutely the worst, find a bush get spotted die, or, just drive around like a loon spot and die, sometime you have to admit the game is just way too hard to play, I have admitted this so many time before:D

 

 

Good news is though on my alt the sats are slightly better, this account is cursed to always be low winrate
