First and foremost, I was not planning on recording this match and if someone can tutor me on how to record a replay properly, that would be awesome.

 

So, I been having a terrible run with the centurion 1 after I unlocked the top gun. And lo and behold I get this beauty of a match. The attached video will how mercy rolls exist, team mates have worse memories than gold fish and as usual, I keep forgetting to use prem.

I was left with 1 hp and then my tracks somehow ate a kill shot. That's mercy without a doubt. RNG finally favored me after 7 losses in a row.

Mercy rolling isn't it's own mechanic.

 

You got lucky.

more appropriate Futurama avatar?


  

Some people claim Ensk should be tier restricted.   I don't believe their lies. 

Imagine if this forum had only players who actually win more than lose trying to tell others how to play. Would be the best forum ever. Instead, we have a bunch of bad advice from players who lose more often than not trying to tell their betters how to play their tanks.

Tutor 

Firstly. Click the left thumb stick so view changes.

Best to have trial runs with replay to find good camera views, when zoom gives better view etc b4 you record.

Upload studio is a good basic editing app for the xbox.

Best is actual gamee footage, record last 5 min if something good happens.

Create a you tube channel, to show off your glory bits.

My first Ace Pz 2G a mix of replay n gameplay.

Just after this game, i realised the setting for reverse is inverted reverse. Who knew?. Y would this be the default setting????? 

I thought my controller was just crappn itself. 

 

Gg 1hp left there should be a special hero medal for that.

Not sure how that's proof mercy rolls exist. You got lucky once being left on 1hp. As for the second shot, can't tell where it went due to the camera angle. It probably didn't even hit your main tank compartment.

When you use the word "proof", it causes a phenomenon that I like to refer to as the Puckered Starfish.  It doesn't matter if you intended it jokingly.  People around here see that word and just can't wait to tell you you're wrong.

I do think mercy rolls exist just for the fact there are several epic medals based around them (and I like the way this tinfoil hats fits). When clubbing at tier five and six I saw it happen more than enough times, mostly relating to TDs. Shooting hellcats, toasters, Nashorns, and T67s and watching them scurry away with less than 10% of their hit points when even a moderate damage roll should have killed them outright. Now, I can debunk my own tinfoil hat by stating the hp amounts on TDs are directly set up in conjunction with the average damage per shell for that same tier thus setting up the scenario for the epic medals, but like I said above, this tinfoil hat fits me so well:hiding:.

 

We also pay more attention and remember times when we are slighted like low damage rolls, when truthfully there are probably more times that you have just killed the other tank and moved on. 

 

GG OP!

Luck is something you make up in your head to fitnsituations, rng is a real video game mechanic especially in situations like this. OP said it properly

Ill be honest here, I wish there was less deviation in damage. After playing BF again and having each of my shots do an exact amount of damage and go exactly where I aimed them, made me wish wot was like that.

I was pointing out it wasnt a mercy roll. if you get a few favourable RNG rolls then you are lucky, if you get several bad RNG rolls then you are unlucky

It wasn't particularly obvious from the OP that it was meant as a joke, that is why people jumped on it.
