The prioritization of targets in blitz can make the difference between winning in losing you should know what targets to prioritize on if you have a flanking shot on the enemy teams best player and you are in no danger at the moment take that shot it could knock him out so your team can advance and come around and kill other tanks from behind however if you are in danger shoot the one attacking you if you die you have no use on the battlefield.

I agree. It really can mean the difference between a victory or a defeat. However, prioritization can be a very questionable topic:

 

  • If you go for a weaker target, you can finish them off and you won't have to worry about it becoming an issue once you start attacking the stronger targets. However, you may draw the attention of the stronger tanks before you can finish off the weaker one.
  • If you go for the stronger target, this can help with finishing it off before it deals to much damage to your team. However, the weaker targets may flank you and become an issue while you are attacking the stronger target. The weaker ones may also move up and engage your allies in the time that it takes for you to take down the stronger target.

 

Overall, it depends on the situation of the battle. It also depends on the capabilities of your tank, your allies and your enemies.

Thats why you platoon but i go for stronger tanks first and use them as cover ans since there lots of noobs in tier 8-10 games they shoot their own team helping you finish them off

I would suggest that if your team is fully engaged and the enemy team doesnt notice your gone then flank around and cause as much damage to the enemy as possible.

Always try to take out one shot tanks first.

When I'm in my t54 and I can take a shot at a e75 without getting one back, ill take it. But if there are multiple tanks firing at eachother, I'll pick off the easy kills first, so I can circle the high tier heavies and TD's. I also target my tier mediums so I can flank easier. Personally I smile when I see a full heavy/TD enemy team, but it gets annoying when I have to verse another t54

Personally I try to take out the highest tier tanks I see with my jagdtiger.  I love it though when I see a medium flanking because they have such weak armor and try to troll us TD's.  Their also really squishy when you ram them

When I'm playing a TD or a Heavy and sometimes a Medium tank I run the role as a caller. When I play as a caller I hover over a tank and tap the Attacking X button. This gets the teams to focus fire on a single tank and wins battles.
