    I'm a mechanical engineer that designs plasma cutting systems. When people ask me what I do I tell them I create a machine that generates a lightning bolt and passes it through a tornado to control it. Which is kind of true and also makes it sound way cooler than it actually is. When I'm not at work I hang out in my mom's basement and think about trimming my neck beard while slamming handfuls of Cheetos down my gullet.

    I wanted to make this to share with whoever is interested what I have learned about playing well in tanks over the past 4ish years. I play almost exclusively solo, so bear in mind this is from the perspective of a solo pubber. These are my OPINIONS, so take from them what you will. *** There are a few factors which contribute to consistent good play and I have listed them below in order of importance: Factor 1: Positioning 70+% of playing at a unicum or superunicum level solo is positioning. The other 20ish% is comprised primarily of map awareness, and this is all brought together by you knowing how to play your tank from a mechanics perspective. Positioning is not only about knowing the good spots. While knowing where to go in general is good, your positioning should be heavily influenced by the tank composition of your own team and especially that of the enemy team. You need to know where the enemy is going to be before they are lit based on what tanks they’re driving and their level of skill. More than this, you need to base where you are going to go at the beginning of the match based on where your own team is going. Heroism in this game gets you nowhere except an early, shallow grave. Do not be a hero. If you do not have the support you require from your team to be successful in the position you want to go to, don't go. You will die early and you will not be able to contribute to the match in a meaningful way. Factor 2: Taking responsibility We have all played matches where pubs cry about their team doing this or that and that’s why they lost the match. Do not do this. If you lose, you need to be thinking “what could I have done better to win?” If you die early, you need to be thinking “what did I do wrong to die early and not contribute to the match?” Take responsibility for your failures. I hear so much “I’m only 1 tank out of 15! How can I influence the battle at all?” You need to believe that you not only can influence the match, but that you are the only one who can influence the match. Assume everyone else will choke to death on their own saliva before they will get their HP in damage or assist you in any way. Your teammates are liabilities. It’s 1 against 29 out there. It’s ok to fail. Don’t beat yourself up. Take responsibility, learn from it, do better next match. Factor 3: Don’t be afraid to experiment (and learn) No, this is not sexual innuendo. For every map there are set channels where you are expected to go based on your tank type. Examples: You are playing a TD. You should sit back and move forward when your team has cleaned up. You are playing a heavy, you need to go into town and rub dicks with the enemy heavies. You are playing a medium, you need to go into the field and hunt scouts/be on the outskirts of the battle. These expectations are lies. You need to go where you think you are going to contribute the best to the match, regardless of what anyone else thinks. Are you playing a heavy? Go field. Are you playing a medium? Go city. Experimenting is a key factor of playing well because from this you learn what’s true about good positioning and what’s bullshit. You will learn fast by experimenting with different strategies and positions because if you made a poor decision you will die early or be ineffective. As I said before, there is nothing wrong with failing as long as you learn from it and use that knowledge to do better next time. The main upside to experimenting with new strategies is that you find out quickly what works and what doesn’t and you become a better player for it fast. Factor 4: Getting early damage Getting early damage is one of the key ways you can contribute to a match for a number of reasons: You will get the upper hand in the match quickly by damaging enemy tanks before the real battle begins You will throw the enemy off their game. If a pub gets shot early on in the match it will lower their self esteem and immediately put thoughts in their head like “oh it’s going to be another loss.” This is a huge advantage for you. If the enemy is intimidated they will make mistakes, which you will capitalize on for massive damage and wins. You will know enemy positions early. You should already have a map in your mind of where they are going to be, but solidifying that knowledge is key to making your next move. In my opinion, if you are not dealing damage to the enemy within the first 60 seconds of the match you might not be doing what you should. Factor 5: Know your mechanics! Knowing how to play your own tank is important, but you will hopefully have become proficient at driving a new tank within the first 50 battles or so. However, what matters hugely across every tank type and tier and in every match you play is knowing basic and advanced game mechanics like spotting, angling, overmatching, ammo types, tracking, circle jerking, blind firing, etc. Every tank has different gun and armor combinations. Knowing that you can overmatch the turret of the T34 and T29 with your 122mm gun can mean the difference between a win and a loss. Knowing that you can’t sidescrape effectively with your particular heavy tank can mean the difference between a win and a loss. Knowing that you should fire HE at a waffle for maximum damage can mean the difference between a win and a loss. The list goes on. If you don’t know basic or advanced mechanics, educate yourself. You will learn a ton and be able to apply this knowledge to real situations. Most pubs do not know this stuff. Use it to your advantage. Factor 6: Don’t get stuck A huge part of being able to carry a match is staying alive as long as possible while dealing maximum damage. This means you need to know when to fight a battle and when to run away. As I said before, you do not get points for being a hero in this game. There are no medals for staying to fight 6 enemy heavies by yourself and dying early. Do not fight battles you know you are going to lose! If you feel that you are not going to win the battle you are fighting, back off, run away, live to fight another day. You will get more damage and kills and possibly be able to carry. Your teammates will yell at you for abandoning them. They will call you nasty names. Don’t listen to them. You do you. You can win this match, they can’t. A big part of this factor is not going to positions where you cannot run away. There are a number of spots that are popular for certain tank types which, if things do not go as you had planned, there is no escape from. Do not go to these spots unless you are very confident that you can win with your current level of support. Stay alive longer. Win more matches. Simple. Conclusion: There are many other factors which influence matches, but let me tell you this: very rarely in my experience is the outcome of the match out of your control. Every time I lose I can identify several mistakes that I made which may have cost me the match. Being a better player isn’t about not making mistakes, it’s about making fewer, less costly mistakes over time as you learn. These are my two cents. Thanks for reading, and never stop learning and getting better my fellow tankers.

    I keep all my tier 10s because they're expensive to buy first off, and you only get 3 mill for selling them. IMO keep them just don't play them, move the crews around.

    Me too! I'm interested in what could be made from it, good experiment. I think it has potential to grow (eventually) into a tiered system like QSF - only a lot better You've never played with @WaterWar - he is the fucking War Daddy when FC-ing, he doesn't need to pretend I want to get my intelligent insult script back up and running but that's effort I quite like it, forgot to ask about TS again...

    It's not really a sample size problem. The main issue with recent WN8 is that the tank-selection flaws are easier to exploit (accidentally or otherwise) over a smaller battle count. However, whole accounts with narrow tank selection (eg. all mediums) are no more valid. Sample size is primarily a winrate problem. Damage needs ~10-50x fewer battles for the same accuracy as winrate, depending on personal consistency and tier played.
  22. 2 points
    Yeah. Strictly speaking its only valid for account-wide comparisons, and maybe per-tank comparisons. If you increased the game count and assumed there was a variety in the tank selection, it does get better.

    For me, Prohk-a-I can't be bother to spell out the shitty maps shitty name is by far the worst map in the game for me. I hardly ever play tanks with thick turrets, so your usefulness on the battlefield is extremely limited. You can either go 1-3 line and camp for 10 minutes, hit the mid ridge and get fucked over by tanks with armour or go to the hill and get fucked over by tanks on the hill and on the mid ridge who have thick turrets. Normally whenever this map comes up in the rotation I just suicide up the middle at the start. Can't be bothered to waste 10 minutes instead of playing 3 games in that timeframe.

    Mines is just an awful and predictable map. Its small and there are huge unplayable areas. Westfield in good without arty and horrid with arty. I must be sick, I love prok and would probably quit game if they did away with all of the open mobility/vision maps - its one of the few maps where you can access every square and are not forced into funnels.

    For @KingYoshiLuca Keys: You have to edit bits yourself to add insults in whatever language you want - or compliments - or whatever message you want, pretty self explanatory. One of my favourite prem shell responses is 'I was firing Lo'real shells... because you're worth it' It has some useful stuff like auto-notify team of reload on autoloaders, keys mapped to around WASD area for help/reload/CW Help LINK According to XVM I'm Polish so I have Polish phrases too I'm lazy and like replying to people complaining about the liberal use of prem shells at times, so I have a script that simply uses hotkeys to send retorts, such as the one listed above

    50 120 and positions

    IMO the best position for the 50 120 is to bend over, grab your legs, and fail at kissing your *** goodbye because you don't have enough gun elevation/depression. It's been awhile since I played the 50 120 and the horrible memories are mostly gone. Best advice I can give is to echo others and tell you to either snipe (carefully) or flank extremely distracted enemies. Save your hp and know that (unlike the 50 100) you can't 1-clip many tanks. Your focus should be on finishing off wounded enemies that you KNOW you can kill with 3 shots or less (because derpy gun). One pro of playing the 50 120 is that you will find many little bumps on maps that you never knew existed, and be unable to aim at what you want to shoot at because of your horrible vertical gun arc.

    Any of you pure pubbies?

    We stopped stronks and clan wars ages ago, and i rarely platoon. But then i suspect your point is how best to learn. Playing solo forces you to be very more aware of what's going on around you during battle. And very aware of what you are doing wrong so you can then learn and improve. Don't use playing solo as an excuse, see it as a challenge.

    Hmm... that is an interesting one. I've used the same 'optimised 2 circle' (or a name like that) for ages so can't really compare. Which i guess gets back to trying to work out how / what i changed in my gameplay. Ie more specific things than 'less enabling, more whoring' to go from an angry blue to pulling days like yesterday at 4.5k over 60 odd battles. Granted the zoom in mod is likely completely unrelated but it came up. Also, when the MM gives you lemons...

    Name and... Praise?

    I was in the batchat and it was close to the end of the match, by mistake I flipped onto my side and was going to be on my back at any second. I called out to help and this barely 50 wn8 pubbie in his T62a came and perfectly pushed me back onto my tracks. He first pushed me away from the rock that I flipped myself on and then went around and pushed me onto my tracks with almost perfect train of thought. Granted he looked like he was suffering from sever lag due to his movements, but judging by what he was trying to do you can tell that his thinking was up to standards of at least a blue player. You can watch it in the replay below, it's close to the end of the battle. http://wotreplays.com/site/2625242#sacred_valley-zesshin-bat_-ch_tillon_25_t
