Hi all,

Haven't posted a topic to the forums in a while; but I thought the forum's been lacking some good constructive topics, so I'm here to make one.

 

Basically, this guide is going to teach you some basic maneuvers that you can apply in battle to win your battles on a local level, no matter where they might be. Learning to win fights is just as important as your rotations, so listen up.

 

Lesson 1: Basic pushing
Lesson 2: Fighting around a corner
Lesson 3: Avoiding facehugs
Lesson 4: Getting tanks off your rear (turretless TDs)

Will add more later when I think of more things to add + have more time


336 tanks in the garage!

If only those that REALLY needed this valuable and well-crafted info were steered to the forum via in-game forum promotion. 

 

Solid info. Alas, exactly one struggling player, who actually wants to learn, will see this. So shameful of WG to let this knowledge base run fallow.

This is very good advice. The diagrams help us "slower" tanker's understand. Please continue to add on to this when you can. Thank you.

Even though the people who need to read this aren't on these forums, its still a good refresher for more experienced folks.

If you ever wanted to make a video showing these tactics , happy to jump in a training room so you can get content.  Happy to be an adjunct professor for blitz university.   More like grad student teaching assistant, an old one.

Super useful!
The best thing of such tutorial is explaining vital moves in such an easy way!

Just so everyone knows where to find this.  Go to.. Game discussions. Then.. general discussion. And then.. player's guide and information.

Yep!

 

might i suggest working with CC's and ACTUAL PLAYERS to create tutorials for the game published by WG, I don't know how many times I've thought this was needed. 

 

Learning isn't hard, the biggest problem is new players either 

 

a) don't bother to accept or seek help 

 

b) cannot easily find help

 

While there is no solution to the first reason, creating useful, helpful tutorials created by players, for players, would help A LOT for the good of this game. Wargaming should step up their game and collaborate for tutorials that will help a lot.

 

I don't know how many times this has been suggested, but if you could forward this to ANYONE at WG who has an interest in this it would be fantastic. Getting prominent CC's and influencers to collab for the good of the playerbase is always good.

 

At the very least, put links to Fatness streams in random places for new players.

I would like to add on that when hulldown, make sure to move your tank back and forth perpendicular to the enemy’s line of sight. effective in any tank except non turreted tanks
