M4A3E2 with nine kills sat on the flag for three and half minutes rather than hunt down the last enemy tank, a KV1 with no kills who no one had seen the entire game.  Sure enough, the KV1 was AFK, no shots fired, negligible distance travelled.  What kind of moron caps the flag when he has a chance for a Pool's?  This cap the flag at all costs mentality is out of control amongst the potatoes.

You only get so many chances at a Pools. Who cares of if you lose ,roll the dice!

Exactly!  I was frustrated just watching as everyone pinged the enemy spawn and he just sat there.  This guy has a once in a lifetime opportunity and throws it away because he is hardwired to capture.

The only thing I can think of on that situation would be if he ran out of ammo, and didn't think he could kill the last guy by ramming.

Wait so he capped the base? I would have thought he was trying to get the last red to make an appearance? Or as has been mentioned ammo? Also what was the game type and timer count down? + perhaps he thought it would havw been a dtew?

Encounter battle.  When he started capping there was over 7 minutes left.  And he only fired 35 shots ...:ohmy:

 

I messaged him too.  He knows what a Pools is and didn't mention ammo.  Some not so polite messages were then exchanged on both sides.  I am still completely blown away.  Looking at his stats I see he has around 2.5 capture points per game.  I honestly think he only shot at the enemy because they were bothering him on his way to park on the cap circle.

For me, chasing down the last red depends on how healthy my tank is, what damaged modules I have and what the last red it. If I'm low health, low ammo, have multiple damaged modules or the enemy tank is something fast I'll just cap out rather than risk dying for no reason and potentially throwing the game.

Maybe he only took 35 into the battle, or the last few were HE only from the 76 mm.  I don't know .

 

He probably didn't know what the medal was, or realized how many kills he had. He was probably scared to go 1v1 with a full health KV1 so took the win. I would have actually messaged him to ask why he didn't go for the Pools

That's what I usually think, but if I'm sitting on 7 or 9 kills ,I'm going for it even on a sliver of health.  You might get lucky.  Wins come and go. But a win isn't as important as having a try at a Pools. I've had maybe 4 actual chances at one in nearly 20k games, and never got it

Meanwhile, every time i have a poor Battle Ace at hand, everyone tries it's hard to steal that tank in front of my noses.

 

This game is full of ungrateful bastards.

I've once had this opportunity to try to get Pool's medal in map Raseiniai: I was in my T14, I had 9 kills and only 50-70 hitpoints left and one enemy left and almost 5 minutes left on the clock. I said to my platoonmaten that I'm not gonna cap, I'm gonna try to hunt down that last enemy... and guess what? Defeat... I couldn't find him in time :( I'm still sad about that. I'm only had 3-4 chances ever to try to get Pool's medal... :(

What happened to the rest of the team? Sounds like the M4 won the match so where's the problem? :confused:

Oh man, that had to be painful to watch... I am never that lucky, Every time I get a chance at Pools or Kolobanov's it gets stolen in the last second.

Maybe base capping is key... :P

I’m going to be that guy, and agree with the M4A3E2. I don’t know what’s up with the KV1, but I know that equipped with the 122 that it could wreck me pretty quickly. There’s no way i’d hunt a KV1 when i’m alone especially in any M4 variant, armored or not. In this case it’s better safe than sorry imho. You could really only find out he’s AFK by watching the replay after the battle. At that point, it’s the M4’s battle to win, and i’m sorry but i’m going to have to disagree with you and say you’re in the wrong here OP.

Sounds like he plays for the win and isn’t a glory hog. Must be a loyal follower of the King. No issues here.
