There is always a risk when claiming something to be unusual here that half a dozen know-it-alls will pipe up with similar stories or even wackier ones, but I am willing to risk it :teethhappy:

 

Dynasty’s Pearl in an encounter battle.   We are capping for some reason.   I am well off on the grassy knoll somewhere in my IS8, contributing little (as usual lol).   We have me and two greens left and they have 3 or 4.   The counter ticks over 100, so we win, but in the time added on by the ref for injuries etc. my two team mates are both bumped off.   So, I get a richly deserved Kolobanov! :trollface:   Seems fair to me.   I had to survive alone against three enemies for at least two seconds!  :izmena:

Bag it and boast about it, mate. Compensates for all those times you lost at the lastest sec because of lag/low roll/server hiccup...

After the fact kolobanov...

yeah that’s the first one I have heard of.

 

and have you heard of replays ?

i think your story will be tastier if I can watch it live. 

But anyways.


Read my guides there

I want just that, and replay files.

Turns out I was in the K-91.   Here is the link.   I have no idea whether this will work:

 

ETA it didn’t.   Explain please in idiotspeak how to attach a bleedin’ replay.

lol yeah that was a fun game. 

 

As as far as gameplay your issue was driving around the map by sticking to the edge.

not meeting anyone was a clue that red had decided “allpark” while your team had decided “allcity”

other teammates called to call the reds by capping, and others yet by driving back, in effect defending the cap.

those where the right choices, especially driving back.

 

you can also drive straight middle If skills allows, this is more difficult but allows for tons more damage if you are good.

if you are suicidal like me you go opposite side from the team right from the start and you hope to make some dent in the reds and escape in time. That’s far less efficient than the previous but more exciting. Plus if I die it’s my team’s fault (somehow).

 

circling the map is always wrong, especially if your team starts to spread like that case. Either you will meet some camping and hungry (angry) T95 or your own slow tanks will be caught by faster reds and flooded. Either you will drive all game meeting no one and the game will decide who wins without asking your say. In all cases I have never seen it being effective. 

 

Even in extremely fast tanks you would rather want to short flank. Going through the middle and timing right to get the rear of an specifically identified, weak and isolated target.

Shouldn’t get one if you haven’t killed the last 3 tanks.

It's stand alone Vs 3 and win.

Doesn't specify how you must win.

I play supremacy alot and it's not unusual to get the bases ticking points over enough that an afker gets a kolobanov.

It happens.

Before supremacy, Kolobonovs meant something.

But, before supremacy, the game was better.
