RNGesus givith, RNGesus taketh away. RNGesus is blessing you today.

I figure today's mission wouldn't be too bad. Hope I have the same luck this evening. 

50 hits on 50 different tanks, or just 50 hits on tanks overall?

I believe it's "damage 50 tanks", not "damage 50 times".

Exactly the opposite for me today. Every battle has been like recess at clown college.

Yesterday, I was feeling so good - 75% WR through the damage mission.  Won my first two IS-6 B mission battles then lost 14 straight with teammates you've described in your post.

Not bragging, just the facts. You know there's a problem when your arty is out front scouting.

yesterday matches gave me the big FU.....26 matches with horrible results on bad teams.   Roll over after roll over after roll over.   In six games now with one victory follow roll over lost after roll over lost.

Actually this was the easiest mission so far, the previous 2 days were awful, everyone stealing kills, losing every time now I'm winning and doing the monies almost all the battles

Gotta hand it to the dude, at least he was TRYING. Better than average for the last couple days worth of my teams.  Last night I was playing on cliffs, and my whole team abandoned the canyon, with the exception of our best player in his JPE100. I went over with my S1, and between the two of us alternating shots, with me spotting, we held that position against over half their team, including two of their three heavies. Stacked up some nice damage and a couple kills, as did 'Zilla.  Looked around... And we were all that was left. The entire rest of our team evaporated with two kills between the entire other thirteen tanks!

I had a nice Top Gun in, of all things, my Valentine II (my 4th time playing it) and I had like 8 damaging in that tank...  And I had 2 Confederates this morning...

 

It was a quick 100 damaged tanks (50 and 50).

3 games in my M44 got me 20 damaged tanks, the American missions really flew by. Decided to pop a credit reserve and play the IS-6 for the RU missions, which took a lot longer but I made like 2 mil credits :P

 

Best day of missions so far.

Do you actually have to deal damage to the tank or do tracks count?

As far as I can tell tracks do not count.

Aight wanted to know. Still not fully decided if I plan to do America/Britian or Russia/China today. Only have enough time really for 1 mission because I am going to watch a special 1 day movie in theaters.

Why is it when those weird bad streaks happen that they always start and end almost exactly the same? 80 percent of the team lemmings to one side and then loses a tank in the first 30-60 seconds. They have the enemy outnumbered on that flank by at least a 2:1 ratio and still get their butts kicked. Then team then folds faster than a bad poker hand. I take up a good position to try to spot and get some damage in and get no support so then I try to take up a supporting position and our scouts and spotters are hiding behind our tds and arty. It won't matter what I do during these crap streaks. Try to play active and your team won't support. Try to react to what your team is doing and they are in such completely useless positions that it is a futile attempt. Meanwhile, the enemy players have taken up all the best positions on the maps and start picking off players on my team. Once they have a big advantage in numbers, they all rush in and clean up the rest. Top tier tanks hide in back at full health while the enemy top tiers are free to move around the map and feast on the lower tier tanks in this new 3/5/7 mm system it really amplifies this problem. When I get the good session the next day, you can completely flip what happens above and it is the enemy team doing what my teams did and vice versa for the good session. The weird thing is that once you are in a session, it seems to give battle after battle of bad or good matches, depending on of you are in the crapper pool or the good teams pool.

 

I have also noticed that if I log in really early like at 4 am EST, the game play is a lot different. I think this time period is like 8 or 9 am over in Europe and there is a portion of our player-base that is from Europe/Ru so the battles have a lot more of those players in them on our server at that time. I see small groups of tanks all wolf pack up one flank and try to clear it out fast. They seem to be a lot better at forming those small packs and doing that compared to NA players. NA players will just camp in one spot and hardly wolf pack the proper way. NA players do seem to be better at using spotting mechanics to get an advantage compared to EU/RU but they don't seem to like to form a group of tanks and move all together to win one area of a map. They seem to know that if they go in a group, they will take a few hits but they will survive and can overwhelm small groups of enemies easily and win an area of a map fast. It is a good way to play the game with how the maps are now with all the corridors and stuff and it favors this play style. Back a few years ago, more open maps and less corridors favored using view range/spotting mechanics to get an advantage.
