He is over angling. This topic is pointless.

1. No he is not overangled.

2. Morphman, most of your toxic responses are pointless so why are you upset with a "pointless" post?  

 

This actually worked quite well and they gave up on the spot and we took a huge HP lead.   The point of the post is you can get a sidescraping benefit from a tank sidescraping in front of you.  And it can be taken to an extent as to be comical.   Lighten up.

This is a very poor visual example of side scraping, because we can barely make out that there is a Tiger 2 in the image.

 

There are two tigers, no angling nor side scraping, nothing ... just peek-a-boom. 

 

Then at third glance, leaning into the photo, yeah, there is actually a fifth tank, nose into the rock feature. 

 

Anyhow. Lots of topics on it with better descriptions, visuals, videos ...

I thought it was funny, some of the guys here take things way too seriously. Surprised you didn't make a comment on the misspelling in the title.

How to sidescrape: you can't anymore without using a blockade (buildings, terrain, rocks etc.) since wargaming buffed the penetration values and nerfed armours also nerfed dispersions.

Sheesh what is up with the party poopers around here. I’ll ignore the fact that you are in a Smasher and give you a +1. 
I for one still enjoy amusing and unique content, thank you sir.

I’m  laughing at all the tanks pulling out side ways as the Tiger 1 took a nasty hit for it.

I don't think it's funny. If they were any more serious I think it would be borderline toxic. Sure it's ok to be serious, but ease off a little. Have some fun.

Here's a better show of how it went down.  This was not meant to be taken seriously as a sidescraping tutorial.   Feel free to analyze/criticize how well the Tiger 2 was sidescraping or just enjoy the cluster F going on at the spot (glass half empty/full thing).    

 

I do deserve the hate for the title misspelling though.  That's unacceptable.

I admit, ... I see " how to " ... saw only two tigers NOT sidescraping ... then upon the third look I see the tiger 2, camouflaged like a rock, ...

Provided there's enough space, one good sidescraper backed up by a series of other guns can work a treat to send enemies back to the garage. They poke out too far, see one tank, oh helloooo tracked, repaired, tracked, derped, ... off to the lobby we go.

Plus I can only imagine it creates auto aiming mayhem with that many guns in such a tight space at distance.

The only thing I could see was the cluster tanks all in the same spot.  Makes it really tough to pull the win out like you did.  Nice work.

That is a cluster.  And it is an illustration of why sidescraping is overrated, that guy couldn't reverse enough to get a decent shot off, and if he hadn't have been blocked in he would have ended up blocking his own team's shots.  Ugh...

I did get a chuckle out of the two Tiger's pulling out sideways -- way to maximize that armor :facepalm:

Both Tiger 1, now buffed lower plate and the Tiger P have excellent frontal armor.   They could have come out frontally if angled properly but these two knuckleheads were were sidehugging each other and decided to go out sideways together (on more than one occasion).   It was a mess right there.  I was just the tall gent in the back quietly dropping HE bombs.
