i see alot of people crying about spgs targeting them or so they think, because of xvm. let me help you out.

i dont care about your wn8, i dont care if your purple, blue green, yellow red or wthever, there are certain clans  i target and dont care about my team, i mash the 2 key in the spg just for them, id mention the one alphabetical letter, but for some reason wargaming says dont shame even though they should be. 9 out of 10 times your getting targeted by an spg and you see my name its because your clan is a bunch of tools, i have no problem wasting credits to target you or anyone else in your clan. want to run your dbs and talk garbage about other players, have at it, but remember this if i see your clan tag goes on a list to where i target, and yes its fun for me. idc about wn8 or helping a team, i care about retribution, and smashing people that run their mout XD enjoy because chances are ill be looking for ya =)

I always thought that Arty targets high value targets like the super tanks and tanks with low health to get that tank off the field. Well that's how i was taught to play it anyhow.

There are a lot of bad arty players that

 

1. Exclusively do the counter-battery whole freaking game.  I actually like these arties, since all I needed to counter it was moving after each shot, and they basically allowed my teammates not to worry about them.

2. Obsessively focus on XVM snipe.  This can be quite annoying sometimes when there are 2-3 arties that does the same thing. and you are the only green+ player on the team.  It can work in lower tiers when there are just 1 or 2 green+ players per game, but not in tier 9+.

I think that's a dumb way to play the game. Not sure what clan you're talking about, but to hold a grudge against 100 players just because of their clan tag sure sounds petty (and toxic) to me.  And to boast about it on the forums is just stupid.  Do you realize you're begging people who think like you to target your clan?

 

p.s.  Capitalization and punctuation... use them, man.  It's a basic courtesy a writer extends to his audience.

OP.......and that is how you lose battles. 

Your job is to focus on the biggest threats to your team based on tank class/damage potential. Keep them from advancing by stunning / tracking them. Kill low health tanks that may retreat.

BWAHAHAHAHA, the salt.  The rage.  The angst of a player who hates top clans!

 

 

Always good for a chuckle.  Good luck out there and remember to not let the game get ya bent.

I like that OP is being completely honest. Besides if there are only 100 people in whatever clan he's talking about he will have very few games to target them so not a big deal.

That's fine, we take just as much pride in catching you out at the end of the battle and finding super fun ways to kill you, like ramming, or tracking you and pushing you into the water you were probably just going to drive into anyway. Always brings a smile to our faces.

Someone here is SOOO butthurt that he had to come to the forum and announce his feelings of powerlessness for everyone to read.

i guess im doing it wrong, i target the tanks that are the most ikely to break through the lines and get me spotted,

if the team is holding the lights and fast mdiums back,  ill target the ones that are giving them a tough time..

I doubt I get targeted for my clan belonging, that would just be sick, who'd in their right mind hate a bunch of dads trying to blow off some steam, right? But I do get targeted everyonce in a while and I suppose it's because I'm the only average player on my team or I drive the most dangerous tank on my team. Regardless why, it's a fecking pain in the azz. You get slammed and tracked, wait for the track to get fixed, slammed and tracked again, OK hit the repair kit, move a few meters, slammed and tracked again, wait, slammed and tracked again, wait, slammed and tracked again....  It's generally the end of a very bad experience.

 

But I can forgive it and I respect it if it's one SPG. But when the battle has three... OMG. I hate it. It's like being bullied by three big guys having created a ring around you and they're just pushing you between them. WG must stop allowing three SPGs on the same team. One is enough but I can settle with two. But three? No, those games are awful.

Reading is not your strength, is it pal? One alphabetical letter in the clan name. YOUJO has five. Or is it the maths? ;)
