Now I dont know about you guys but I think its about time we started commending those Pub teammates who are team players.

Those guys who will help you hold a flank against overwhelming odds whilst the lemmings are having a picnic. Those guys who will run a flank with you to get behind the opfor. Those guys who have a fast firing gun to cover whilst you reload. 

As far as Im concerned we spend too much time complaining about the cannon fodder but we never praise these Unsung Heroes.

So after all that Id like to commend:

Firstly Sparrer32 who I met on Kasserine in his M5A1 whilst I was in my Firefly. We took a lightly guarded flank and swung round behind the opfor and added our fire to the rest of our team facing them from the front. He finished with 3 kills in a respectable 4th place on the list.

And Secondly DOC VANDY in his lkv 103 who I met on Karelia-Rain and we held a flank together with me in my Achilles. He killed a Hellcat and between us we dispatched a hard charging Fury.

Im interested to see both how this thread goes and to see if the Unsung Heroes outweigh the Cannon Fodder. So please do feel free to add yours.

For Russ and the Allfather

I like this idea. Name and Praise. The forums could use some more positivity.

It certainly could. We are all aware of the hundreds of potatoes but nobody ever remembers the helpful players.

I know there’s a lot of complaining on this forum but you’re right, we never seem to praise those random teammates that helped you turn a game around. 

 

One of the best feelings playing this game is having those 2-3 tense and exciting matches where you “team up” with like 2 other competent players on your team and pull back the scores and end up winning a game that should’ve been a crushing loss.

+1 for the idea. Wonder if this could take off like the “which forumer did you meet” thread!

This is a great idea. However, have a feeling that WG is going to put the kibosh on this - too many players will complain that they can't get their name on this list.

I dont think WG will. As long as the Mods are on it and disappear pointless derailment it shouldnt cause a problem.

I like the thought of this as well.  I know I have had plenty of helpful randoms but no names that I can recall.  I will now have to make note of names and give them props here.

It would be nice if the mods were on it, but face it, they can't be everywhere on the forums. In another thread here today, you have a poster saying that people who believe something should be put down. Such comments will kill this new thread....

Thank you light tank operator :great: for eating a shot that would have destroyed my temporarily disabled tank  .  You were smart enough to recognize how important it was to keep my tank in the game .  I don't recall your user name but I'll never forget your heroic actions that day on heavy tank alley .

I’ll add one. In a tier VII game on Lakeville only myself in the tier VI Swedish autoloader, my friend in a tier VI 59-16, and a guy with the gamertag of MattieBubbles in a Black Prince were the only ones to go into the town from the south while a few TDs clustered at the start of the Lake road and the rest of the team decided to fool around in Fail Valley. So we ran into nearly half the red team coming through the town at us. Not only did MattieBubbles survive but between us we destroyed a T29, Tiger I, Churchill VII, Churchill I, T25/2, Hellcat, T37, and Comet. My friend got destroyed almost immediately and I was pretty wrecked but couldn’t contribute a lot due to the reload on the autoloader so it was more a case of the Black Prince dominating. 

I hope to one day be wealthy enough to be considered eccentric rather than just plain nuts.

The good players are the only ones i message, they are very rare to see but when i do i usually give out a GG.

I don't play anymore, just loiter around the forum from time to time.

This is a brilliant thread and long may it run.

I would like to thank the medium tank driver on Prok. this evening who killed the  M37 artillery who was beasting me in my Hammer. I asked for help over the mic and he responded, I'm sorry i didn't catch your name but thank you anyway. We lost in the end, i had suffered module damage all over the place, but it was closer than it would have been thanks to unsung medium tank driver.

It was near certain defeat as we were left to face seven enemy tanks including an SPG.

 

We went on the offensive and never slowed down.

 

He had my back the whole way.
