it's one of those games where it's a lopsided flank push. I spawn north in my S-51. The majority of our team goes hill, with a few people going tank alley. Way too few people go railroad, which is where I went at first. I see that railroad is going to fail and I also see that hill is going to push over the top. It's looking good... as long as we keep them off our cap.
The enemy tanks at their end of tank alley are defeated when the tanks from hill flank them. At this point as well, our railroad guys are dead and the enemy are pushing to our cap.
Now, our tanks at tank alley are still at OUR END of the road. They could have *easily* turn around and taken on the enemies at our cap. There was a Jagdtiger 8.8cm, a VK4502P, and some other heavy. It would have been cake. Then we would have quickly capped as the living half of their team was basically all at our cap.
But nope. Even after I point it out to them WELL before the enemy cap starts, they decide that the best thing to do would be chase down some kills and get further from our cap. The mediums who went hill realized that our heavy brothers are too simple-minded to realize what's going on, but they are too slow and not well-armored enough to take on all the enemy tanks at our cap. We lose.
So PLEASE, pay attention to your minimap! Avoid these kinds of preventable losses! This one could have been ours so easily, but it was thrown away by people who don't listen or look around them.
And you know what else: 45, 47, 47. That is all.
