Ok, long shot here, Does anyone remember years ago, a guy who used to do WOT videos on YouTube, but he was absolutely *terrible*? From about 2012/2013

He was old-ish, maybe in his 50s, and American. He'd explain his 'tactics' as he played and it was very clear he didn't have the slightest clue about tactics, predicting others' behaviour or the game mechanics, I think he had around a 43% w/r.

 

The video I remember specifically, was him spending the entire game driving a KV-1, very slowly through turret-deep water up the gorge on old Sand River, explaining how this was an excellent tactic to 'sneak up' on the enemy.

Maybe Derek Duvall as that sounds more like a name. The guy who was claiming not to smash the creates in the base as that means you have an RNG disadvantage?,

If I remember correctly this is the player who couldn’t update the game for a few months until they realised that they didn’t have the disk space.

I have a video called "in the world of tanks", but it's definitely NSFW.

 

Still, I consider it a classic.
