Todays' is not the sort of I normally feature but in this case I'm more than happy to make an exception.

Just be aware that I get hundreds of emails every week and I can't promise that I'll show what you send in.


  1. Well akchually Jingles, 13 75 was never a tier 6, it was always tier 7 with 13 90 being at tier 8.

  2. Very Interesting. Different than other games.

  3. do people still play light tanks? I thought everyone played wheeled vehicles instead now. as they go faster, can’t be tracked and their wheels bounce every shot.

  4. For the first time I’m happy to see a draw.

  5. draw is the worst game result .I would have prefered to end it faster if it was unwinnable..

  6. ‘down the wire’ never heard of that expression before, does it come from WW1?

    • To the last minute; to the very end. For example, We’re just about down to the wire with this project. This term comes from horse racing, where it was long the practice to stretch a wire across and above the track at the finish line.

  7. To the driver of the 1375 (a tank i quite liked)

    Well played sir.

    • And applause to that AMBT! You could see on his positioning and re-positioning that he knew what he was doing and was the reason the eastern flank didn’t collapse from the start. I’d say he’s probably the best player on this team with some margin.

      The platoon mate in the KV-3 must have also performed heroicly! I’m not saying it because of that perfectly decent 1.5k damage as a mid-tier, but that he stalled the western front for so long against two top tiers who by the looks of it knew what they were doing. Otherwise the western front was thinning out quite early.

  8. Well played, though I also do feel for the enemy VK.

  9. Every video makes me smile jingles, please never change. I remember meeting you at tiger day 3 years ago? Still makes me smile, you were so nice, let me get a few photos with you. Thanks for never changing jingles.

  10. This is without a doubt the best draw I’ve seen so far! Had me laughing out loud. Very entertaining to watch indeed.

  11. A well earned draw indeed

  12. A fire would’ve also been nice

  13. I can confirm: this was the most celebrated draw of my life. < platoonmate in the KV-3

  14. What was your rarest Medal combination earned? I think Mine would either be the Raider, or the Kamikaze that I got…. In my TOG*II

    • I got a Raider in my Ke-Ho twice back when I played. Not a big deal (Ke-Ho is a small light tank, it makes sense), except that in the first Raider I got with this tank I also had lost 95% of my health well before I got even into that capcircle. It was likely a stray armor piercing shot from a German 105mm howitzer, but I don’t remember exactly what took such a chunk out of my 340 (at the time) health bar. Shows how long ago it was, it was before the low tank health increase – hell, it was before my first hiatus, so probably 2016 or so.

    • I got raider with my Bert, which was a shock when the results screen popped up.

  15. Ballsy move, but unnecessary (funny tho). He almost died and that would have cost bit Xp. He already had earned Defender medal.

  16. That shot bouncing off the side of the artillery is just Karma balance, he bounced a 90mm shell of the FLAT SIDE of his tank as you noted. A draw with 5 hp and ZERO shells left? Thats probably as good as its gonna get, and look at how chill everyone is in chat as well LOL.

  17. I like the cut of his jib.

  18. No point really on using AP ammo on amx 13 75 anyway, low ammo count with somewhat derby gun handling is not great combination.
    Full APCR is the way to go, and yes i know “Gold noob” messages after battles are kinda fun and entertaining 😀

  19. was great match Well done to all

  20. Best windraw I’ve ever seen. Hilarious!

  21. What I would have done (and have – once) with that few shots remaining at the end of the game, would be to use them 1 at a time at 40s to 1 min intervals to keep resetting the cap to eat up the clock and hope i get lucky with a fire or ammo rack. but if not, I still get the draw without having to chance the ram and get it wrong.

  22. Florian Schäffeler

    Well actually Jingles (i always wanted to say that…), the T71 DA isn’t in the american Tech-tree anymore, in the Tech-tree it is the T71 CMCD…

  23. this could have also been titled… ‘boop~!’

  24. Sad, try for the ammorack, or even try for an insane maybe somehow works ramming is ok, going for a draw intentionally is not ok, you just take stuff from the other player for nothing.

  25. Daniel Gyllenbreider

    This was a delicious draw!

  26. Wargaming Super Noob

    I finally got a chance to watch a Jingles video before going to work! Horray!!!

  27. Scummy move. I love it

  28. Exactly as I say: The worse the tank, the more of a challenge to do well in it. And once you’re on the map, it’s just about to get the best possible out of what you’ve got

  29. Great ending but, both players misplayed badly

    The AMX 13 75 shouldn’t have fired 3 of his last 4 shells so quickly. would have made it much easier to draw.

    Also capping was a misplay for the VK 36.01 H. He should have gone to hide and wait for his opponent to start capping. The only reason Capping didn’t lose him the game was that the AMX was basically out of ammo. (Since capping in the AMX would also have likely been a misplay in this situation the game would probably still ended in a draw).

  30. This is by far one of the most hilariously funny conclusions ever!

  31. As far as that 50-2 commentary goes…Russian bias 😛

  32. i actualy claped at the end what a play

  33. Given that he knew he couldn’t kill the VK, I’m surprised he used 3 shots at the first reset. Intelligent player would have spread them out to run the timer down.

  34. As Claus says a draw is like kissing your sister.
    Well played by incoming.

  35. I was really hoping for Yakety Sax to start playing at the end, but sadly was not to be

  36. ABSOLUTE GENIUS !! lolol Outstanding game play, “never give up, never surrender!” 100% worth the draw.

  37. Done what the French are good at. Running away

  38. Hey Jingles! I have a question for you if I may sir! I found watching this match as pretty funny and similar to a match I had the other day, same tank, very similar situation. Although! Difference being sand river, and on console. My question to you, wouild it be possible to send on that replay and see what you think? Granted there’s a lot of gold, though thankful my arm was twisted to load it

  39. Genius tactics

  40. Why didn’t he space the last 4 shots out more? Interrupt… wait 1:40… interrupt… wait 1:40.

  41. Another video of Incoming was with his tortoise, climbing up the hill on Tundra. sadly that has been patched a while ago
