Well I just started playing this today from boredom and is pretty fun with the tactical gameplay and teamwork, I soon going to have get some gold so I can buy more slots for tanks if I want any luck playing Tier 2 games.
And just the last game I played there was only one enemy left at the south-east side of the map shooting at my teammates, So I sneek in the base from the west side passing the flag until I was right behind him and killed him with two shots, If only I saw the guy’s reaction.
Right now I’m just shuffling plays with the rookie tanks, Any advice in WoT you guys have for a noob like me?
Well, the first thing I would suggest is not keeping the super-ultra-fast guns for very long. While spraying your enemy with shells is effective in the very low tiers, it does next to nothing in higher tiers, like III and IV. So you can choose to either not use them at all or only use them for the lowest tiers.
From personal preference, I would suggest just using a normal weapon, even in the starter tanks. Try to get a relatively balanced weapon, that isn’t ultrafast but isn’t a derp.
Although, you should probably attempt trying one of those machine guns just once or twice, simply because they can be a lot of fun.
Another thing to do is make sure to keep your frontal armor pointed at the enemy. Try your best to keep from showing them your sides or engine. Tilting your armor just a bit, so that their shells come at a slight angle, is usually helpful as well.
Also, if someone is trying to flank you, turn your turret and hull in the direction they’re heading. You may already know that this speeds up how fast your gun gets to such a spot due to simple physics, but I didn’t realise it for a while.
Yet another thing that’s very important (no matter what tier you’re in) is leading your aim. If a tank is coming through very quickly, aim where they’re going, not where they are. You may know this as well.
One more thing: This is an excellent guide to various tactics and play styles. I recommend reading it.
