I just played this game (haven't watched the replay back) and it really annoyed me because I should easily have won it, but instead I screwed up.
I played 1v1 a lot during the last week but fatigued myself fast, and this was my first since then on a cold Monday morning at 1am, so probably not the best time to kick off 1v1ing again but nevermind.
Things I noted during the game that should probably be looked at:
- I think I split my units up too much. Ignore the guy's chat about blobbing he doesn't seem to grasp the terminology given that's exactly what he was doing all game. I maybe lost too much ground early game to playing like this, but I'm not sure. Altogether felt very sluggish about what I was doing with my stuff and did not have a coherent picture of where to go
- My dive for the P IV went very badly and it was quite greedy (but also what the hell happened I was sure I was going to kill it but somehow it took no damage for ages?)
- I traded an MG34 for a heavy mortar accidentally, and it was terrible in the end. My unit preservation was quite poor and my macro game was kind of off
- Somehow, he got two KTs over the course of the game as well as one P IV and Jagdpanzer, and I'm not sure how he managed this. Did he really hold my fuel for that long, because I can't really remember. I dealt with them in the end, but it was too late by then
And yes, I am a little salty, and maybe it's not fair to call the guy mediocre, but it makes me kind of depressed I lost to his playstyle.
