Yep even us old veterans can screw up! Never get distracted while driving to the fight!
I got distracted by the phone while crossing this Railroad trestle. The result?

Just a few inches and Bang! I was a stuck tank! Then I became target practice for the
other team! Sure I did plenty of damage before I died. But, I let my team down and
died foolishly.

The moral here is to pay attention even when doing routine driving! Never get to close to
the edge of any lake, river, canal! One spaz or hiccup on the net? Your dead in the
water! Stuck on a rock! And.........

Had the same thing happen to me a couple of weeks ago. Also found out (the hard way) that the shoreline is not a gradual incline as it appears. I was having an awesome game in my Jag88. I had taken out 5  heavies and was going to skirt the shore to engage another when... I just fell off into the water and drowned! It was totally unexpected and gave me and a couple of guys on the opposing team quite a laugh. None of us knew the shore dropped off like that. LESSON LEARNED!

Had a match in Erlenburgh (spelling) where I was in a PZ3/4 (i think) crossing over one of the north bridge at full speed.  I crossed the guard barrier and ended up skidding across skateboard style.  I thought I was going in teh drink.  Thank god for momentum...

Also when you hide behind rocks or hill corners give yourself space between the objects so that you can easily back up - many a time due to the physics of the game you tend to get stuck...and will have to move side wards first then move back...and while you are doing that you know what could happen....

Same place. I did a high speed drift and shoot on the flank of a medium with my VK2801 and just kept going. Hate to see my own name under killed by...........

LOL, Been there, done that.  Side strafing another tank in my T-50-2.  Ran right in to the water.  Found out the hard way you can't climb back out.  Sigh. :Smile_confused:

I fell into the river at around that spot once.

Next time I forced someone who tried to sidehug my IS-8(stoopid idea) into water and just left him there to drown.

I backed my VK3002 too close to the water there once, and it was like a trapdoor opened up below me. One second I'm zoomed in on an enemy tank, the next I'm staring at blue sky as the tank tips back and gravity did the rest.

Got stuck in the same spot, opoisite side in my T-49, got off one shot at a T-50-2, and thought: WTF am I doing??!!
Dont draw attention to yourself!
Be small!
Really,really small.
I survived the game and we won, though thru ab-so-freakin-lutely no help on my part!

Noob question: how do I attach a screen shot to this post?



Good Luck & Good Hunting
