UrQuan's Tank Tales

Wed Jan 06, 2016 11:10 am

This'll be an odd thread for the 'Strong replay' section as it won't feature replays every time, but mainly summaries of fun matches, new & old. From epic last stands to silly rammings.

Will also post sometimes a collection of (older) short stories centered around a certain theme.

Changed up this opening thread to turn it into a thread index, to have an overview of the stories.
Note: most replays aren't available to view, due to it being too old

You tell 'm I'm coming & Hell's coming with me! - Unleashed Churchill III
The Nightmare is Real - Whean people fear OP tanks beyond reason
Stand and Fight! - KV-4 doing it's thing of Not Dying with Dinger support
Almost a goner... Lets anger the enemy! - Oneshot KV-4 Master versus full HP KV-4

And we shall ride into the Valley of Death - Unstoppable KV-4
German Engineering at work- Tiger P declaring it's love for Mr Rubble
Stand your ground! No matter what comes through! - KV-4 & support versus the red army
The Rock is Love, the Rock is Life - Dinger TB with KV-4 drawing enemy fire

Afraid that will happen from time to time (and there's even a few extreme epic matches I only got screenshots from) Still putting the replay link for the stats & teams, as it helps a little to visualize it more.

Originally had a different tanktale planned, but the game decided different & gave me one hell of an epic match today!
Tooned up with Drakozaurs after a rather bad run of games previously. Then this gem comes along:

You tell 'm I'm coming and Hell's coming with me!

We load up our Churchill III tanks for some easy fun. We land toptier on Cliff, so we decide to round the hill & pew pew anything that moves. Most of our team lemmings to the valley. While me & Drakozaurs mow down the enemy, our lemmings get stomped hard by the enemy force in valley.

Then an enemy derphetzer lands two sideshots in me, reducing me from full to low HP, putting me on the defensive for a while (at a critical point tbh). As I notice the enemy has still all their arties & quite some of our team are surviving heavies. I decide to go to the enemy base, to hunt down or at least put pressure on their arties to divide attention.
I charge the enemy base as Drako returns to defend ours, sadly Drakozaurs gets taken out by the same hetzer that mauled me :? :(. Left without a toonmate & the base under imminent attack, I realize that winning the game is slim. Enemy still has all their arties & I'm a oneshot. Helping to defend would surely mean certain death & loss. So I gamble on our teammate KV-1 & I go hunt enemy arty.

As I charge the enemy base, I spot base defenders along their arties! I take m out, then begin working on the arties. Fun detail, while I get shelled like crazy, I'm not even moving! I'm standing still & they all miss! Considering how the shells fell all around me, if I had moved, I'd be dead. One by one, they fall before my fury.
As the last one falls, I notice our KV-1 is still alive & is trying to decap. Hoping he'll be successful, I try capping enemy base. Alas, he dies & the game is lost by cap.

Do I regret losing? A bit, but considering that me & Drako did more damage combined then the 13 others on our team, I can't help but think that the enemy deserved it more. I do thank the Dinger community for making me see the positive side of this game. Win or loss, in the end it's one hell of an epic game & I torched 3 arties down, yarrr.This was also the game where I got my 333th Steel Wall on my account!

Replay here: Medal Avalanche in a loss game + Ace badge And yes! You can watch this one! Do check the end & get all sweaty as I don't move an inch while arty gives me the shelling of a lifetime. The Iron Curtain Shield works excellently!

Moral of the story? An epic game is an epic game, win or loss (and courageous resistance bonus is a great thing in such cases!)

It's not whether you win or lose.... it's how you place the blame :D

Which according to Dinger rulez (I have been told) is always Jay, whether he is in the battle, garage, or not on line at all... :D
