There are indeed many lemming trains, and many wandering fools, and many hiding behind buildings. However, it's tricky to play console on the bog. Certain times of day see better players online, which can help. I'm damned if I can figure out when these are...

Don't get me wrong, the player base is every bit as apalling on console, but the lemming train is punished more often than not by caps, whereas there's more of a sense to the tactic on blitz i guess.

My recollection was that lemming trains where generally a bad idea on blitz. Has that changed due to changes in the underlying game or just more bad players?

They're still a bad idea, if there are two competent players on the other team. Very few players seem to understand their roles, with lights heading straight down the heavy channel for a head-to-head with the reds, rather than trying to spot, meds doing the same rather than flanking, and heavies considering their strongest armour to be on the side. On some maps, getting to a spotting position and lighting up the reds can make your team work.

It is the 2 compotent players that are the problem, it doesn’t happen often.  I dont really platoon much as I generally play at times rest of clan dont but I’m getting to the stage where I’m going to as I’m not good enough to carry on my own and getting fed up of being top of a pile of tomatoes.

 

I don’t play above vi yet very often but it is noticably better in tiers vi and vii IMHO but lots of posts say viii is a nightmare so you may be better off going to vii or vi and/or platooning.

as ever all appreciated chaps.

 

I never was much of a tooner as I've always been the type to squeeze games into the odd moment here and there (the throne being a classic as @mrpgilbert rightly points out).

 

I guess I'll just have a painful period whilst i get used to it all and how to respond. Like brave sir robin i guess running away is probably best :)

Around lunchtime there seems to be a bit of a skill spike. At least, I came across a lot of 55%+ players between 1 and 2 today, which made for more interesting gameplay.

i found on console that work hours on weekdays outside of school holidays was a relatively safe space.

Sadly my WFH era is finished. My battle count has suffered accordingly!

 

Big up Sk8, good to see you, always a pleasure :)
