The only problem with this is that currently nobody at WG considers this to be cheating.

Do it anyways maybe when they get a flood of complaints they will do something about it.

They shouldn't be removed, but they should be balanced. A strong spot for one team should be matched with one for the other.

Talk to Scorpiany, he can goat in a heavy no problem. You'd be surprised where any tank can go. I've seen a Maus goating and a TOG.

Takes a lot of practice.

 

TDs are easiest.

Thats my point.  And either be made slightly more accessible, or removed.  Personally, I dont care... hence the poll.

 

3 BAT's on one side and 3 Cent AX's on the other isnt gonna get it done for the CENT team if they cant climb the paths when the BAT's can.

Agreed- I'm a HT main, and I can't help but admire those goats.

 

never stopped me before =D

 

no seriously. IS-3 or T26e5 driven up a hill in clan wars. people think i nuts.

and the enemy don't realize i there till i land on them right as my team pushes into them.

 

they freak out and aim at me, while my allies get free rear turret shots.

 

HT mountain goats are hilariously fun xD

Unless you mean to make the maps 100% flat, someone's always going to find a nook to get in that gives them an advantage.

 

As it stands, both research and creativity shouldn't be getting punished, I feel.

Most map Mountain Goat paths give one side a distinct advantage too... i.e. only one team can safely access/use it.   While Im sure I dont know ALL the MG paths, the few I know are not equally accessible/ exploitable by BOTH teams.

 

Mines, Mountain Pass and Sacred Valley come to mind. Also Steppes at A9-A0

They are killing Mountain Goating.  The new map graphics are putting hard obstacles in places where mountain goating occurs to put a stop to it.  The devs did not intend for players to use it the way it is used now ,and it is rightfully being shut down like the trash weab tactic it is.

That's true but it's rare that a team is entirely bereft of climbing tanks. Lights can do them even if your meds can't. Whether that's the best use of a light ( or medium for that matter) is another question.

Any vids of HT mountain goats?  All the vids I've seen are only of super fast LT/MT/TD's.

Ive seen Bat Chat, E-25 and HIGH tier Swede TD Goats.  Gotta be FAST tanks. 

 

VERY few can make these treks.

 

There used to be a goat path up the south side of the Mines donut hill, but that's gone now.

Dude, the B-C 25t is blistering in a straight line. It just has somewhat sub-par cornering.

Back when I played WoW I learned a little about the equivalent "mountain goating" which involved exploring incomplete areas that the devs never released to the public.  It hurt nobody. 

 

I am against anyone doing this being blacklisted, but given that WoT is (nominally) a competitive game I don't agree with it being part of the game.

If you look through Cheekyman's VoDs on Twitch you'll find him doing climbs on Abbey in a Maus and Type 5.
