    NavySnipers got a reaction from Monkey in The steps of improving.   
    The problem with most of the WoT community is that they just don't think about it. They just play without caring if they're playing good or bad. You should always strive to be successful. Here are the steps for improving:
    Recognize that you have a problem. You don't improve until you realize you're bad@tanks. How do you know? If your overall WR is below 49%, then you need to improve regardless of what you think or want to think. If your overall WR is below 54%, and 60% on your 60 day, then you need to improve. Being above average doesn't make you good@tanks. If you can't pull 60+% on any given day solo or platooned, then you should look into improving. In fact, regardless of your WR, you should ALWAYS look to improve. Once you've realized that you need to improve, find what are you fail at most. How? Watch replays [Go to your settings, and check "enable battle recording" if you haven't already. Replays take up virtually no space. Just delete them when you're one with them]. It's amazing how much you'll learn from just watching your own replays. "Oh shoot, I wasn't watching the minimap, so I didn't know that guy was coming up behind me" What does that tell you? Watch the minimap more often. If you die early "wiTh nO teAm suppoRt", then you have an overextending problem. Going to an area that would be considered "normal" on a pub match where your entire team is camping is overextending. If you can't identify what you are doing wrong, then ask around. Post a couple replays on the forums asking for advice/tips/whatdidIdowrong from good players. Practice. Every game look for ways you can fix a problem you have. Problem with watching your minimap? Turn your sound off for a few games so you are forced to look at your minimap for information. Problem with overextending? Well....Don't. Before every move, ask yourself, "Is moving here really a good idea? What can go wrong if I poke around this corner? What can go wrong if I push over this hill?" Don't play ridiculously OP tanks like the sherman with HEAT deerping. I recently came to the conclusion that playing the sherman too much will make you worse@tanks, because you'll notice the shermans playstyle leaking into other tanks. After a day of Shermaning, I played a couple games in my VK3601 and did less than 500 damage a game. It was then that I realized I was using the same overconfident playstyle that you can get away with in the sherman. The next day I did well over 1300+ DPG with the VK. Learn the finer tactics. If you don't know the weakspots, learn them. If you are looking for a better way to brawl, learn to sidescrape. Sidescraping was the tactic that made me like this game 100x more than before. The science of it is incredibly fun. Here's a quick lesson on sidescraping:





    I'm not going to do a TL;DR, because most sub-50%ers would just read that, and I want them to read the whole thing.


    One problem I continually struggle with is situational awareness. I might be doing fabulously in one area, but get tunnlevisioned and not watch the minimap to see that I'm about to get overrun.

    In all seriousness, the only time you should cap is if:
     
    A. Your enemy is hiding and you want to draw him out
    B. Time is short and you can't chase him around the map
    C. There's too many enemies to safely bet that you can win by killing and you are sure none of them are fast enough to RTB.
     
     
     
    Judge the situation dynamically. Use your head. Win.

    NavySnipers reacted to Never in Forum Updated to IPB 4.0   
    So finally IPB 4.0 went on full release, so I took the chance to update the forum software. I'll list some of the changes to the most used features:
    This new version has quite a number of new features. Mentions are also now much easier, you can just type @ and start typing the name of the user you want to mention. It will display a list with autocompletion options. For example: @Solono
    To create a status, you no longer click on your username in the top panel. You now click on "Create" on the top panel, and select Status. This also allows you to quickly create a new topic or blog post.
    There are also a few things missing that we used to have, and we will have to make do without them for a while, at least until the modding community on this version grows and creates the modules we need (I already tried to make modules for IPB, wouldn't do it again). 
    I won't bother putting everything that's new here. If you're interested, here is the documentation.
    Hope you guys enjoy it!

    Brought my first AR into the world.
     
     
    As for optics I'm going to spring for a Vortex Viper PST 4-16x50 VMR-1 MOA attached to an ADM recon QD mount.

    NavySnipers reacted to Never in Hijacked Ad Blocked   
    So some of you have been getting redirected to another website when browsing the forums. This was due to a hijacked ad that somehow passed quality control at Google. This problem has been reported on multiple other forums as well.
     
    I've blocked the entire hijacked domain from displaying ads here. This block might take up to 24 hours to start working. Thanks to everyone who reported this!
     
    Cheers!

    Tier is irrelevant. It's whatever tank you can stomp the most xp per match in.
