    I feel the same way about Stalingrad, as the garbage and trenches on the ground make it difficult to maneuver around the map quickly. Further, the dirt which blocks so many would-be passages makes artificial corridors. The map is absolute shit, in my opinion, and in mediums I frequently find myself playing on the perimeter of the central square.
    Kharkov, by contrast, is great for flanking. I don't have a spot which I go to by default, but if I find that the south is in a hull-down stalemate I'll turn around and go north, and vice versa.
    Coincidentally, Windstorm is currently my worst map. I feel like I consistently perform poor to mediocre on this map, with the occasional exception.

    I don't know much about the new Redshire since I just picked up tanks again but for Steppes, I go east anyway. Just hang back a little bit and poke over the first ridge near your base and see what's coming while getting a couple of shots off. If the push is really bad, retreat to a decent defensive position and try to farm and if it's not all that much, but still too much to solo, try to support your other flank while still being able to flex back to base. Also, make sure to click the map now and again for pubbie attention, eventually some of them will pick up on it.

    Hi guys! I think this may be a good idea. Basically, people ask for help on which maps they are weakest at and other players who know the map better step up to help!
    I can answer questions about most maps. Questions should be specific so people don't have to write the answer in essay form.
    Give reps to those who help! I need to boost my rep to post ratio ;_;
    So to start off, my worst maps are: Windstorm, Stalingrad, and Kharkov (These are all medium tank questions btw, Heavy tanks ez on these maps).
    Where do you flex in midgame Windstorm? Best microposition for squishy tanks on stalingrad? Which lane do you find the easiest to push first on Kharkov( in squishy mediums of course)? Shoot!

    Okay so it looks like North spawn South Coast needs some explanations. In the beginning, I always go to the standard early shots bush even if I'm in heavy tank. Always. You put fear into mediums going into the mid from South spawn and also can catch unaware tank going on the opposite hill. Then, I sit on the C7 hill like a TD and snipe for 2 solid minutes. Don't ever use the E7 hill in early game. There are way to many angles that enemies can shoot you from. Anyhow, the enemy will have grown impatient enough to push one flank (either 6, 8, or 0 line).
    At this point, I will have put in enough shots to give my team the advantage, so the enemy's push will already have been in vain. Typically, they like to push 8 line the most; 0 line pushes are very seldom(hard to deal with too). Only a good platoon will actually have the guts to push across the 0 line to get a better vantage point in exchange for some HP.
    So now, I'm in clean up mode. If I'm a squishy medium, I go West and around to flank 8 line. If I'm a heavy I just go straight in and brutalize them. Usually there are still some remaining on the 0 line hill so I snipe them while moving up (plenty of cover in mid). Piece of cake. I find South Spawn to be harder actually.

    North spawn you can also push down to the balcony area in anything with turret armor and have firing lines on like 3/4 of the engagement. You need to be good though, because you have to then hold that area. Really pays off in map control and damage if you pull it off though. Especially viable if the enemy team doesnt have many meds.

    From south spawn I tend to take J8 with both platoonmates. This is a bit harder during solopubbing but if you can take that road you have free reign in their flanks in town. I've found myself dicking around in middle too many times to count. North from the east spawn works well if you have a solid group going with you. Middle from the same spawn works too, albeit it's pretty open to clickers. Getting across the bridges in some way or another in general is pretty vital to both sides in my opinion.

    Personally I go either E4 or D7/6 to begin with on windstorm, assuming you do the same here it goes.
    (Aggressive West Spawn) If E line is controlled early, depending on the TD numbers for west spawn I will either go into the mini city or try and push into base/into the north. Otherwise known as normally this is a farm situation where you should try and get the ball rolling but will require you thinking through where to go everytime. Really helpful . Important to note that the southern E line has great hulldowns for RU mediums that you can use to take mid. 
    (Defensive West Spawn) You lose or don't have mid control but ARE NOT GETTIING PUSHED THROUGH MID. If they are pushing north sit in E4 and kite them around the wall while shooting them, and if they are pushing city then just go and brawl I guess. If they take mid I normally just die terribly, sometimes managing to flex into city so I can at least try and brawl heavies to help my team. 
    (Aggressive East) Take mid control via  pushing/flanking, then just move on through farming stuff. I personally find this spawn way easier as I find the city easier to flank. 
    (Defensive East) If you control North, going into the river bed just to stay alive and join up with some pubbies is a solid idea IMO. Otherwise you frequently just die since the area of engagement in middle is so small.
    Man I am helpful : /

    1. Depending on where the enemy tanks are, of course. 
    I've lately started preferring the north engagement a lot more than the middle, because the only reason the middle is considered good at all is that is in the middle. Switching places with the city and the middle would make this map much, much better. Needless to mention the middle gets spammed by arty SO MUCH
    But I assume that you play the middle, I'd most often flex into the city, helping the team there and speeding up the push ideally, or saving their asses if they're getting a whopping, giving your entire team the opportunity of either going back or continuing the push. The problem with city flex is that you're very, very far away from everything else, and a caprush when you're in the city means you're doomed, so I've lately been going north because you'll see the enemies coming from the city much sooner, and thus they pose less of a threat. 
    Problem is that the north has to be winning for either of this to be productive at all.. Otherwise I'd just go with the gut and flex wherever there's more HP to farm.
    3. Without arty, the north is definitely the easiest, from the north it's really nothing more than going around that small hill on their side of the engagement and you have them all trapped and farmable. South is worse, if you're really squishy it's only really potshots up north, but a good turret means you can hulldown pretty well on the terrain. You'll need teammates either way though
    With arty, I usually go to the middle courtyard in anything, rush the northernmost side and take some sideshots on tanks crossing, go back and follow the engagement on my team that's winning to mop up some free damage before mid/late-game farm starts. 
     
     
    Questions:
    1. How the hell do I play Steppes in a squishy medium if the enemy team heavily outmediums me and I can't get support to the east? What do I do? My attempts on west have been pretty goddamn poor, and basekemp goes against every fiber of my being.
    2. Heavy tank microspots on the new Redshire, is the 9-0 still as important or has the castle taken the primary brawl spot? I just seem to not run into enough tanks to pull off good games in heavy tanks on this map.

    So, for 1000 posts I was gonna make this list, then all of a sudden my post count jumped up to 1015 or something. So 1000 +/- 25% RNG post I guess.
    Since its summer, and many of us minors have shitloads of time, I figured I would put together a list of all streamers I could find that were good. If you want your stream removed just message me or whatever, although I am not sure why you would want that.
    If you want to add people do the same, just quote the post and I will check it since it notifies me. If I am dead mods just edit it.
