INTRODUCTION / NOTES:

 

Hi tankers!  o7!  Are you tired of seeing in the beginning of a match "ALL HILL!!!" or "MILL FAST!!!", etc etc. and wondering why?  Well I want to take a brief moment to explain some of those calls for new players with map illustrations.  Then I'll throw in some of my personal strategies and why I do what, when.  

 

TO USE THIS GUIDE:  Just find the map you are interested in under the posts below and click the "Show" buttons to reveal a lot more information.  I did it this way to make it easier to navigate and use.

I would like to tattoo this URL on the forehead of every swamp-flanking heavy on Winter Mal I've encountered. My current strategy of chatting "All Mill, no swamp Bee Ess" isn't getting it done.

 

Great stuff. Thanks for taking the time.

What about those small hills in the back of green spawn? Those various hills can provide sniper fire against the hill, or valley/midmap.  

 

Edit: I'm talking about dead rail

10-4.  They're just not anywhere near as useful as the ones on the Red side due to their elevation.  That said, I will absolutely go ahead and make a note.
