Just got out of a game in Paris.  I topped the team with 1,915 damage and the second highest didn't even do half.  We also had 5 people that did 0 damage.  5 of us went field while the rest of the team went south.  The mini-map clearly showed that their entire team lemminged down south too, yet the field team didn't move - all TDs, btw.  So, I shifted my Panther 88 to the middle to take some cross fire and removed both a UDES and an E25.  I only stayed in my field spot for about 90s when I saw what happened.  By the time that I engaged the E25, we were already down 0-4.  When I killed the UDES, we were down 2-10 and I killed the UDES in 2 shots, due to a lucky double ammo rack.

 

I have bad games.  Everyone has bad games.  How does an entire team have the same bad game at the same time?  That's like rolling snake eyes 10 times in a row.  Funky happens, I guess.

Don't forget, when you have an amazing game the team fails... when you get shot early on the team wins and it is x5 weekend. These are the laws of WoT.

Field on Paris is where you go to be useless until the south wins or gets rolled.  Either way, you have nothing to do with the result.

Very accurate. You can have the best game of your life, but expect to lose. If you get nuked at the beginning of a game, the team will win. It's so stupid

I had to make a play for it in the beginning, since we had no Lights.  Figured that I'd light up the field to help out and then shift.  At any rate, it was a roll and I still don't get it.  Over twice the 2nd place damage dealer and the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place damage dealers on my team didn't add up to what I did.  The sad thing is that 1,915 isn't anything to write home about so what does that say about the rest of the team?

Severely overmatched South + your average pubbie player and their tendency to make bad trades and/or sit in the open = a quick stomp with little time to do damage for most of them. Once you lose the first couple, the snowball just goes faster and faster.

South is the only relevant area on that map. Why are you north in a tank like the P88 anyway?
