Slightly off topic, but it needs to be said, and forgive me if I sound a bit harsh, but....
That was probably one of the more painful replays I've watched in a while. Seriously dude, pay attention to the terrain, you know what that tank can handle and what it can't. You spent 90% of the match driving needlessly over the steps and shoving a Matilda up a hill when HE shouldn't have been going that way in the first place due to the mobility issues of his tank. Couple that with the Stug that hid at the cap, and right off the bat there is a 5th of the team that was basically useless for a majority of the match. You fired 3 shots, and missed one of those almost from point blank range. You spent so much time needlessly traversing bad terrain that you weren't even able to contribute anything to the cap, and all told I can't imagine you did more than 250hp worth of damage whilst in a TD in a tier 6 matchup. Your only claim to fame was where you happened to be sitting in the right spot when an enemy player took a horrible shot.
Again, I know I might be sounding harsh, but I truly am only offering this as constructive criticism.
I acknowledge that you admitted this wasn't your finest game, but truly, watch the replay again yourself. Make mental notes of what happens. And never do them again.
You missed the point of this thread. I noticed all of that and more, but in hindsight I can only laugh at my own failure; this is NOT my best game by any means.
All I was pointing out was that even a total failure can be turned into success by one bad shot from your (or your opponent's) arty. Besides, that was the first time I've ever tried driving my Hetzer the long-way around on that map, so it took some getting used to the terrain since I usually take the high road.
