It doesn’t help with some 4 or 5 man platoons that are bottom tier and just rush out there to die. Had a few of them last night.

 

Getting tired of 4/5 Man platoons for years now. Feels like its getting worse. and the teams are just bad too. worse than normal too.

Had a 15-0 blowout yesterday.  But it might have been because of the server issues.

And, about a 50% blow out rate last night.

I'd like to see how many of those games you are under tiered.

Different opinions on what a blowout is are fair.  For me, if there’s never any doubt that we are losing, it’s a blowout.  I don’t care if the 12 tanks in the valley on lakeview get a few kills and we kill a couple defending the cap, that game where every top tier runs to the valley is a blowout.

I haven't really been keeping very close eye on that. But Sauer can back this up... most games that he and I are bottom tier, and we get blown out, he and I finished at or near the top. So some of the "blow out" can be contributed to the top tier tanks doing very little or zip.

Ok, I'm glad to hear you say that, because our platoon (usually just 2 of us, sometimes 3) is continually in that very same boat.

We've concluded a long time ago, that if we can't carry, despite being bottom tier, we're going to lose. We can and have won being bottom tier, but being bottom tiered we never are the leading the charge in being able to fulfill it as a blowout win. They're almost always close games (which I find to be more fun anyhow, but not the point here). But more often than not, being bottom tiered way more often than not, we get run over in blowouts way more regularly than we ever seem to be on the side doing the steam rolling.

I start thinking about blow outs when a bottom tier light runs into the front of my 705a and my track falls off, the light circles for 4 pens, runs off with no damage taken. O I forgot to mention that my shot into the side registers as a "spitball." Then you look at the top of screen and we have lost 4 or 5 tanks and only 2 min. into the game, they still have all 15. But if red or green only lost 5 or less tanks its a blow out. I have also looked at post battle and sometimes both teams put up a lot of damage and the kill shots all went to the other team in a 15-5 win/loss, a few good shots the other way and could be a 15-13 game.

P.S. Most times losing team 5 or 6 top tier did 0.

If the game ends with the enemy having 5 or tanks alive it's a blowout. 

 

Call it for what it is.
