In Live Oaks, it was a tier 7-8 match. Both teams had 1 tier 9. I headed north to use the buildings to confuse the enemy. Killed some opposing red team. Later on we steamrolled bunch of heavies in the city, then I spotted a T54E1 and a tiger, sniping anything that dares drive onto the straight pavement. We took chances and make pot-shots at them.I soon I took cover, the T-29 came out of the cover we both shared. Suddenly, he got tracked, but he repaired it. A bounce on his turret. Then expectedly, the T54E1 tracked him again before he could even move. I reacted fast, and moved my Panther II infront of him, facing the direction of the T54E1.

 

Lower glacis hit, engine damage. No biggy, I had a small repair kit. The T-29 knew what I was trying to do, and said "Affirmative!". I said the same thing back. Then an additional ally came to help depose of the T54E1. Then, we steamrolled Mother Russian style to victory, dropping the hammer on anything and everything that dared to fire upon us.

 

Honestly, helping tracked teammates from certain death feels good.

 

Also, don't you think there should be a medal for taking fire for track tanks?

Ahh, I love when people do stuff like that. Kudos to you, it's good to know someone is looking out for his team instead of himself.

Hey anyone who is willing to sacrifice some health to save a teammate has all the makings of a great platoon/team leader in my books. But be careful out there I have already found several players who will abuse your kind gesture and try to use you as a meat shield regardless of what tank you are using at the time.

It's not a question of win or loose, it's determination and team work. Also helps to have a friend with you

Too bad more folks out there don't do it. What is really sad is taking a shot for a tracked team mate, then once they are up and moving, now they're hiding behind you.... yes that has happened more than once.

In my opinion some players are just rude, like last weekend in this one match I got my engine shot out and couldn't move and I was in the Chi nu. So as I was about to die, by having my engine continuously destroyed, I noticed that an friendly AT-2 had moved between me and the VK 30.01(H) and saved me from an endless cycle of having my engine shot out. So then afterwards I followed along with him/her and we managed to get to the base, but the arty was camping their base and was trying to "shotgun" the AT-2, also it was a british arty. So as2  we spotted it the arty fired and i was fast enough to get in front of the AT-2 and took the shot as a way to repay him/her for saving me earlier. I actually got a "thank you"  message later once the match ended.

I wish common sense was common. I totally agree this is great sportsmanship/team player, but some people i have played with and done the same would later send hate mail msgs, and give a negative review. 

Same when trying to give a teammate a speed boost when in a faster heavier vehicle, some people don't want your assistance even if you tell them before you make contact.  I just keep doing what i do, majority of people appreciate it, unfortunately some just don't get it. 

Good Luck and good tanking.

I've found that saving an ally by putting yourself in the way of fire immediately turns the saved ally into a unicum for some reason, as soon as they have been saved, they just start going total ham on the enemy.

I think it's because they then realize they have someone on their team who has more then two braincells (you) that knows what teamwork is, so they become bolder because they're confident you'll back them up.

Excellent sportsmanship. Keeping that T-29 gun in the game is a good idea. Playing random, it's rare to hook up with another random and watch out for each other. However, when it happens, it makes for a great game. Love it when you end up with a shadow who seems to think the same as yourself in battle.
Stats? We don't need no stinking stats.
