Sometimes it's impossible for one person to carry their whole team, no matter how hard they try. (Not me, me carrying a team is sure lunacy... but I got to see an enemy Hetzer try his hardest to carry his team)

 

I felt sorry for this Hetzer I just faced in battle... he was VERY good... although his team gave him little support...

​While he didn't get the W with his 8 kills he did get Courageous Resistance getting credits and Exp like a win.  Not as satisfying as a carry but better than a kick in the sack.

You know, there are 30 players on two teams.  

Any one (1) of them faces 15 enemies and only has 14 allies.   No matter what one person has for skills, his influence on the outcome is relative to 29 other players, isn't it.    Even on WoT's smallest maps, he usually can't even see half the players, right?    And in the first minute or so he usually can't see any of the enemy at all, can he?   Even on the minimap, and aiming with only the minimap wastes a lot of ammo.


 

To carry the team to a win almost always requires the team to soften up the enemy some.   If they don't most players trying "to carry" wind up running out of ammo before running out of enemy.   That player would have to luck out and encounter the enemy one or a few at a time too.    He also needs to be facing enemy who don't read the minimap well enough to notice what's going on.


 

Looks like that battle boiled down to 3 against 1.    And had two AssaultGun/TD specialists chewing up enemy.
