thought for sure you would be alone in field and 14 of your team on beach camping ...                   

 

With that said on overlord going to the beach isnt really the problem it is attacking / pushing enemy kill zones from the beach to their cap

 

Case in point I luv "going" to the beach /// why ? because when going to the beach in overlord its a simple way to encounter stupid tomatoe enemy team players .. I go to the beach to kill easy targets when Im done I retrace the path back to our side and PUSH a different lane of attack ... meanwhile enemy tanks are camping waiting for me to push from the beach and I pop up behind them from the field and shoot them all in the back.. 

 

PUSHING from the beach in overlord is the noob move not actually going to the beach ..because lets face it no matter what you do in almost every battle people will push beach in overlord and you cant stop it

Well, at very least, you don't have the max sighting and draw distance circles on your minimap, which are pretty handy.

 

BUT I admit this is beside the point, the point here is the 7 idiots on the beach.

I have always called the Overlord map by its alternate name, "Idiots Go To The Beach".

Beach is dumb, but dumb dumb still go there and then wonder why they've lost when the 3 enemy top tiers rolled down the lanes for map control.   "it must be luck or rigged" said the baddie who died horribly on beach.

The map setup is a bad idea. They should move it further inland and call it Bocage.

If you go off the end of the beach in just the right place you end up in the Lakeville valley.

You talking about the scrubs going beach or the map with no expanded features?

I've recently gone beach for the first time ever on overlord. I was mid tier in an IS-2 and thought what the heck....followed a top and bottom tier down and ended up winning the game. 

 

In general though, when I see more than 3 tanks go beach I tend to want to cliff dive...lol

Just like a lakeville valley push, if it succeeds, it does despite going there.  If you can still beat a team doing that, then you probably would have won no matter where you went on the map.

When playing lights I try to avoid this by texting that I'm going to beach to see how many tanks they waste there so stay up top and roll over them. Then if any show up I turn tail and the td reposition to cover the two ramps or if they didn't go beach I get a free pass to their rear. There is always a reason for at least one tank to go beach.

I think the problem. is that bad players sometimes do really well on the beach or in the valley.  They get a ton of useless damage against the other teams bad players, and might even end up on the top of their own team in a quick roflstomp loss.  The damage they get makes them think they did well and everyone else is the problem.  In reality, the damage they got is useless, and the map control they earned doesn't affect the outcome of the match.  In short, you can win the beach, but it's nearly impossible to win the match on the beach.

Lulz. Indeed, tier 10 is not the bastion of excellence we’d all like to see. Had that match almost exactly but with 6 heavies going beach out of 8. They all died at the other end and didn’t do one tanks hit points combined damage in a 9 10 match.
