I saw your replay man and i am sorry to say that but you did not lose because of the Tiger Ace. After it came you played like shit. You managed to loose in 2 minutes your Tanks, your mortar and 2 or 3 Infantry squads. Then your ZIS Guns watched the TA messing up your base.
Again, it is not the TA fault that you lost. Its your fault.
You played very good untill the TA arrived. Then you lost it.
I lost all that due to the Ace itself. I didn't lose these to his great micro skills or excellent build. The TA pretty much instagibbed all my armor. The base rape was the prevent the TA from spawning. But as SOON as he could he spawned it and BAM it insta gibbed my armor and went on its traditional killing spree.
Yet I managed to disable it and kick the shit out of it with 2 T34/85s. Of course I did everything I could to keep up the pressure so he couldn't repair the Ram damage. I disagree that I played like Shit after it came out. I just went ALL IN to take it out.
As noted above show me you do any better in 1v1 against the Ace. The fact is WITHOUT that unit there is NO WAY that player would have won. I don't think that can be argued with any amount of sense. Also with a Call in cost there is no WAY I would have lost that armor and would have base raped him because he had nada.
Edit: And on my Zis. I was hiding it. Once Zis was no use on a TA. It dies in 2 shots. So I wanted to keep it for the T34/85s that were coming that went out there and fucked up that Ace like a Boss.
