Keep front pointed at reds. Wiggle in between shots. Use DPM and make smart trades hitpoint wise. Reach Tier X. Forget about the playstyle you have adjusted to, and learn to play with one hand whilst parking your pixel tank in spawn and farming loads of salt by dynamically clicking a button every 20 seconds.

I've reached a point in my life where I've decided I'm not old. I'm actually 20, but with shipping and handling!

I personally don’t have that much experience in the line above tier 6, but in playing against them i’ve always found it brutal to be stuck infront of one of the line’s guns.

As with most turretless TDs (and now especially this line) position yourself where you can’t be easily flanked, as you’re either the one pumpin it out the front or getting pumped helplessly from the back. You can do this by either staying with teammates who can literally cover your back or if none are available by keeping a wall close. Having a wall close allows you to back up against it and deny anyone who tries to circle you, but will only really work if it’s one tank attacking you.

These tanks may have alot of armor, but they all come with a very big weakspot; the cupola. Something you can do to help mitigate this is hiding the side of the tank that has the cupola around a corner, while the other half and your gun peek around to damage enemies.

At tier 5, the AT-2 is essentially a T95 and AMAZING at playing the front line. But as you go up in tiers the armor, while still there, will be much less effective and you’ll have to progressively play a more supportive role as you climb. Eventually you’ll reach the 183, which is a complete support tank.

Step 1: Pick another line

Step 2: Abandon 183 line

 

We don't need another 183 in the game.

There is a technique called posting where you use hard cover then turn out to shoot,  only exposing half your tank, then rotating back in to cover.    There’s a tank boom episode that talks about this as well as a drawing I’ll post in a minute.

Tier 10's: FV 183, T110E3, T110E4, T110E5, T57, M48, IS-4, IS-7, T-62a, Obj 140, Grille, BätChät 

 

There is only one TD and 183 is her name.

Best place for the 183 is in the garage under months of dust.

This - the tier 8 and 9 all have huge gun arcs so you don't have to turn a corner completely to get a shot off. Keep your tank angled like 20-30 degrees when you poke so you're angled yet you can still hit them. 

Personally I golded the line from the AT-8 using $50 refunded gold so I havent tried this myself but it does work well.


Bring back the T49A

Essentially - it's using the front-mounted nature of most TD guns along with your maximum gun traverse to present the front of your TD at the greatest angle possible to your target. But yes - when you don't need to shoot you can back away and turn at an angle to get cover and while doing so provide a more and more extreme angle to the enemy.

Yes. One line I remember was a short (less than 45k) of free exp and I believe it was tier 7.

My new(and i think improved) version of this excellent advice:

Tier 5 - agree

tier 6 - gold

tier 7 - gold

tier 8 - gold

tier 9 - gate

 

I'm sure 6/7/8 have only gotten worse with all the tier 7 heavy buffs and op tanks as I did the line some time ago.

 

IMO no tank in the game should go less than 25 kph as often you miss the battle altogether in tier 5-8.  When you do show up it is 5 v 1 and gating isn't much use.
