Would it be useful to distinguish the roles within a class? for instance the AMX 40 being classified as a light tank but having a heavy tank role.

There are certain vehicles in this game that although classified as a certain class doesn't mean they should be stricly played as such, the WZ-113 is imo another example of this, its a heavy that can bully mediums and lower tier opponents but against more heavier opponents it is not advisable to fight.

Or for instance the IS-8 with its literal paper hull but somewhat medium like mobility in contrast to the E-75 slower but way more armored hull.

I'm sure you can word it better than me but you get my point.

 "In this game you’re either a predator or you’re prey.

 Prey doesn’t win at the same ratio as the predators because prey doesn’t have the same attitude. Unfortunately their are are not enough predators to keep the prey in check and  the prey is running rampant. Prey doesn’t care about WR, either directly or indirectly. Thats why they do what they want, that’s why the game has been dumbed down and  that’s why MH was brought about. Without a check it will continuously get worse until the predators are extinct" 4sfield

You should definitely put something in there about giving your teammates room to maneuver though. 1) Never drive directly behind a teammate. They might have to pull back suddenly and you can cause them to take unnecessary damage by blocking their retreat. It can make or break a battle. 2) If you and a teammate are working the same corner, be careful not to block his shots. Don’t pull in front to take a shot when he’s already been lining one up, especially if his gun has big alpha or it is a potentially important kill shot (as in not during mop up time at the end of the battle). Those shots you blocked or allowed could also be the difference in a battle.

 

Oh, so very true. Too bad common sense doesn't come into play.

i also fixed 4 so video timestamps would show, but video still refuses to show in final product, but it shows in editing, but i also found a way to incorrectly add 3 "but's" to a sentence with no period

Sir, topic 17 seems outdated now, as spare parts have died so hard that they caused a time rift and destroyed the dinosaurs.

TL;DR....so how do I not suck again?

 

 

Just kidding....it's a sweet guide for beginners, it should be stickied.  Thanks for keeping up with it after all this time.

 

Although I will admit I didn't re-read the whole thing yet, I looked at some parts.  The only critical feedback I have is that this seems geared towards newer players, so I would suggest using lower tier tanks in your examples.  For instance, in section 20 on angling, you use the IS-7 as an example but new players probably haven't seen one in battle yet.  Maybe use the KV-1 as an example, it's one of the lowest tier pure heavy tanks and IMHO I think it's probably the best tank to learn heavy skills such as angling.

 

Great job, thanks on behalf of the whole forum, this type of thread is how we as players can improve the player base which will improve the whole game for everyone.

In my opinion this thread should be pinned.

 

Note: #17 - Spare Parts needs to be reworked as just Equipment.

   and #33 - Tunnelling specific players is and should be considered a viable strategy.

Nope.


I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.
