:Smile-hiding::Smile-hiding:  So, i was on my panther, and i was with a KT, E-75, IS, and a T20. a tiger rounds the corner, and picks me out of the lineup, and ammo racks me. So right as i am about to throw my keyboard out my window, he is demolished, and my team goes on to win. so i think to myself...well.........at leats the enemy has bad targeting priorities.


So, if you are picked out as the weakest, just think what i did.

If you get artied as one of the weakest on the battlefield, look on the bright side, that is one shell not going into your allies capping the base.

When you get circled to death by someone, look on the bright side, he wasnt focusing on someone killing the enemy arty.

When you are the only one being sniped, at least you are taking focus off the enemy.

When you are the first one dead, at leaast your husk can shield that last defender that wins the battle


if you can think of more, feel free to post them





Think about these when bad thing happen, and the game will be alot more fun. ;)

Thanks for your positive inputs.

Thinking with a positive attitude can really change the whole course of the game. At times when I see someone rage quit or provoke an argument with it's teammates, it really weakens your team's will and spirit. Sometimes I get pissed when my team does idiotic things (Such as not coming to my help) but in the end, we were able to obtain victory. Simply not giving up hope and helping your team can really be a game changer even, when your destroyed.

Nowadays, I tend to look into the bright side. When I am destroyed and the game is nearing the end, I try to assist my team, pinpointing key locations or reminders.

Good post OP. I hope this will shed some light for those who are having hard times.

I would add a +1 but I'm out for the day.

Had a match recently where my T32 absorbed more than 30 hits and was probably targeted close to 50 times (many shots hit the rock in front of me - near the top of the Redshire south base defense). I was completely pinned down, and eventually the HE spam and an advancing E-75 wore me down. For my part, I damaged a couple tanks (nothing spectacular), but my team had the opportunity to take the other side of the map in the meantime.

It's all about team play...

He had the right priority.  In that situation I would shoot at either the T20 or the Panther.  The Panther probably because it has the better gun.  That he took out 1 while being out tiered and out numbered is about the best he can do.  If he actually was the one charging, then he made an strategic error, but not a tactical error.  If he was being charged, then he was going to die anyway, trading one for one is at least more palatable than just straight damage larger tanks.

I am amazed at the times I am picked out of a crowd that I am at the tail end of.  I swear some of the shots zig through about 6 tanks to get to me.  I can't get a shot in edgewise for all the friendlies around and the clown one-shots me!  :facepalmic:

I completely agree with you, but then there are those people who dont WANT to be the Team Sacrifice. they want to be the one to win it all, live the entire match, etc. etc. With the Steamroll MM, you are more than likely going to die, unless MM looks upon you with favor, or you *ahem* do *favors* for Devs/mods who are in control of MM with their "magical wizard powers" :D . thats a joke. We must learn to accept the destruction of our tank, and move on. I look at the Steamroll MM trying to teach us humility and to not flip out when you die.

+1 to you OP
And if I am singlrd out, especially by something that could aim at something more of a priority, I feel honored. That GW Type E could have aimed a little further north and hit the E-100, but he aimed for me, a lowly Stock T32. He felt I was worth his 1000+ credits shot, and his 45+ second reload. (he may have aimed and missed, but oh well!) :D

You have opened my eyes. But it is still annoying nonetheless :P

One time in Sand River I was fairly close to the enemy base in my KV-3. I got spotted. There was no cover I could get the big hulk to in time to save it. There were several teammates off to my left on the other side of a dune. I said to myself what-the-heck and drove forward for all I was worth. The enemy wasted umpteen shells and a lot of their attention on me, and my team won. I was a happy dead tanker.

That's usually my job when I'm driving my heavies. Draw the enemy's attention, soak up their fire, let my buddies do the killin'.

although i do indeed agree with the OP's it's still annoying when I'am playing with random who just want to kill rather than win. :)

oh and tell me how should i look at the  bright side when i have a team consist of couple of M3 Lee/PzIII auf, and various light tank.
while the enemy team have 3 KV?

great post,,, we all die,,, its just how much we make it worth,,, sometimes just giving your buds a dead tank to hide behind while capping can mean a difference,, or blocking a narrow road or bridge... running at the enemy with a big shoot me sign,,, knowing your buds can take the cap while they are distracted,,, or hustling back to your base to damage one of the 3 enemy tanks to knock back the enemy cap% while your guys are capping...
