Name something that can occur within the first minute of a game that makes you know you are gonna have it rough. Just curious on the results. 

 

When  key tanks don't move.

What about when heavies decide to defend arty at cap?

When low tier in a 3/5/7 in an M3 Lee and your team goes middle and left and the other M3 Lee goes solo right spamming you to "Follow Me" "Follow Me". He of course dies quickly, and then spends the rest of the game berating you in chat for not supporting him and being a coward.

When your top tier arty sees the reds have a unicorn scout toon and a decent arty so they back slowly into the water when the countdown ends. :angry:

Uuuuhhhhhhhhh.....

 

I saw this many times this past weekend: 

Platooned Top Tier Scouts scoot to a red-line corner and wait the battle out.  

Twice I saw a Platooned Medium enjoying the view

 

I also saw some Russian and Japanese Heavies sniping from back corners.  Lots of shooting - but no hitting...

 

I don't know if this crap is a new 'meta', but I can tell you it wasn't very effective.  It was difficult this weekend.

Well,

 

I have been avoiding Tier VI because my personal goal is to drag my Tier IV and V tanks (the ones I like) to 50%+ before I bump up the competitive ladder.  I know that doesn't sound like much but I've got to drag them from Bot Stats to the 50% mark so I will be a Green/Blue in hiding :-).  But, for the Gringo Line of Mediums the only premiums that I can use start at Tier VI.  What the hell, just take that Thunderbolt into the Thunder Dome!!!

 

First game I was a Purple Master.  Hull down map, good team, and so on.  Watch out for me.  Nothing went wrong.  Like the sound of bouncing shells!!!

All the next games I'm tracked, my engine gets blown, crew gets hurt - basic tank stuff for a front line player.

 

But, what do you see!!!  You guys see some schelp waddling around or pausing like a fool just before some guy dumps like four rounds into him.  Damn, why do these Tier Jumping Noobs keep getting on my team.

 

So, what is something you see 'that is going to hurt'.  That guy, that noob who forgot to load his med kit, his repair kit, and his fire extinguisher.  Uuuuggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh.,

Seeing all of your heavies (and I mean EVERY.  SINGLE.  ONE.) go hill on himmelsdorf.  Happened to me in a tier 9 game in my Tiger P.  I didn't go hill, but I knew that I wouldn't be more than a bug on a windshield to the enemy teams heavies coming up tank alley.  Instead, I went and tried to help the mediums closer to the tracks.

 

Surprise surprise, we got flanked and I had to distract the enemy's M103 long enough for my teammates to finish him off (I actually managed to shave off some of his health and get over 2k spotting on him before he killed me).

 

Apparently, the enemy team was even worse than half of my team, because we still managed to win that one...

 

Still, seeing all (other) heavies go hill on Himmelsdorf or tracks on Live Oaks REALLY sucks.

When 1,2, or 3 of your top tiers either don't connect or are afk for the first 5 minutes of battle, if not the ENTIRE battle.

My own irks that make me say that are:
suiscouts/suiciding tanks that just drown or die being useless especially when they know what they are doing like drowning because they give up on the team or don't want to play their tank in a battle when low tier and not a case of simply not paying attention / lag / or just incompetence or lack of map knowledge and die that way(example I just expect someone to die on erlenberg now via drowning trying to cross the map early or like windstorm into the canals is common too).    
Thus leading to being a tank down early and while its not quite as bad if its a lower tier less important its one less tank the enemy team has to take out as every tank has a role in a game and also one less heath pool and potential afk spotter even if they do absolutely nothing else.      Also doesn't exactly instill confidence on the occasions where someone says the team isn't worth fighting for so they would rather die then give any sort of effort.


​tank I deem important to the battle like a crucial top tier going to a position in a back corner or something where wont be able to assist the team until it is to late to make an impact on the outcome.
Generally leads to an issue where some vital tank cant impact the battle with his(or her) tank especially now with the 3/5/7 format where you may only have that one top tier heavy or something

  People bickering in chat about bad players on team, what teams win chance is, or just generally yelling at each other at start of game.
Demoralizes me when I'm told someone on my team is terrible or like oh we have no chance which is why I don't run XVM. Fine if you run it but please please please don't tell me in chat oh yeah we only have like a 25% chance to win or even if its higher please don't say the win chance in chat I don't have it for a reason and don't want to be told or please dont call out a player publically for being bad or a bot based on their stats.

Team damaging on purpose/blocking tanks from moving out of spawn until after its given the enemy enough of a headstart to have important positons.
Goes with the killing yourself you bleed health early you might need later and when its your own team and on purpose you just screw over everyone else as well.  NEVER SHOOT OR BLOCK GREEN TANKS


​I guess in a way my own irks come down to a few things and they are bickering in chat against each other/suggesting team has no chance to win in chat and people who give up or decide the battle is not worth their time at the start so just leave the team to its own devices and either kill themselves to leave the game or sit in a useless place and refuse to assist full well knowing what they are doing and sometimes take innocent teammates with them because they don't like where the guys going or simply "know team has lost"  and want the game to end faster by bleeding teams health.

Today's been painful, I've seen AFK arties... games starting with allies shooting at each other... Heavies camping with our arties "defending" them... Scouts hiding beside the TD's and a few times hiding behind the TD's and Heavies...

You find the perfect spot for your (TD/arty/passive scout) and deploy your camo net(and possibly binoculars)only to find a stupid heavy has parked twenty feet behind you and is now drawing fire on your perfect position....

The xvm meta in general has pubbies doing the dumbest things these days, don't even need to have it installed when the team ignores 80% of the map then starts dropping like flies in the first minute or so ending in a three minute loss.

Today and last couple days have been rough cause school is out most places and many people are off from work. As a result many players who aren't usually able to play, or rarely play suddenly have a lot of freetime and are on the servers. As a result there are more inexperienced players on the servers right now, many not contributing much cause they don't know what to do, when to do it etc... Not their fault, but they are inexperienced. 

 

[NOTE This is just my deduction, I may be wrong, but I've noticed all the time I've played that more people are on during certain holidays, certain days and hours of the week and usually you find more people who tend to die quickly in matches. I may be wrong and if I am I'll admit it but to me this is the only thing I can think of]
