    Hey guys I have started a YouTube channel to upload any intense battles I get that show ways on how to play properly. I will be uploading replays of map tactics, tank tactics or just some tanking that I want to share. I will be updating and uploading videos daily soon, just right now I don't have much time. 
    I will be showing ways on how to play and improve.
    Some Examples:
    -How to play aggressively without over extending -How to properly take 1 for the team to ensure victory -How to seek/create opportunities -How to Engage and Retreat as needed -Will show Map control -How to wreck enemy team -When to 1v1   I currently only have replays uploaded but soon I will be making Commentaries/Guides/Tank Reviews.   Also I will do video requests, such as talk about what went through my mind in the replay etc..
    https://www.youtube.com/user/JazanMD/    <---- YouTube Channel
    One last thing, I will begin streaming as soon as I get enough money to buy a new gaming PC that is capable of Streaming. (New job yeah! >:]) Would of had one sooner but I was on a college budget  . Any who expect this to be done by the end of June!

    tomhwk reacted to _Dia in Making the jump   
    First let me start off by saying that this is no guide on how to auto achieve your target W/R or WN8. But this is how I progressed from a denier to where I am now and if you're aiming to make the leap from X WN8 -> Y WN8 or WR I guess this can act as a guideline. 
    48% 800 WN6 was when I installed XVM and realized "wow I'm actually pretty bad" Was fortunate enough that Nisae was willing to platoon with me to pretty much tell me how much of a denier I was. Seeing as to how most of you are already here, I don't think this is an issue. My problem here was target acquisition and mini map positioning. Breaking the plateau from any color to the next, is both about consistency and just knowing what to do. Map guides were a good start but they don't do anything in terms of telling you what to do, only lanes of fire and whatnot. 
    15k battles for reference. 

    Le mini map. 
    Coupled with the advent of mods that tell you spotting range/draw distance, it's a very powerful little thing to have on your screen. To cut to the point, you want to go to where you can have the biggest impact and influence the action, either directly or indirectly. This doesn't mean to go city in Lakeville if you see that the majority of your team won't venture out of the cap circle.
    Your good games shouldn't be where you went to the right place on the map guide and happened to be able to farm X amount of damage, but rather you went to where you could help your team get the win. 90% of the time this does mean going to the recommended areas but that isn't always going to be the case. Not going to go through every situation but watching replays will give you a good sense of this. 
    If memory serves right I believe Garbad said this. Pubbies will drive until they find an enemy, a blue will drive to where the enemy will be, and a purple will think about where he will drive and where the enemy will drive. You want to find your targets and be able to finish them without much cost to yourself. 
    Dishing out the damage 
    ...Where it counts. This is where the merits of early aggressive play as in taking forward positions, spotting targets for your platoon members to shoot, and noticing opportunities to get early damage in stack up. What a lot of people struggle with is probably doing more damage than they receive. You never want to trade blow for blow. Target acquisition is a huge factor. Just using a reference, I once platooned with a overall/recent green. We went to the same place, 1 line on Serene Coast. I finished off with 3400 damage, he finished off with 1200. I took care to not interfere with his engagements and mind my own business as it was a fairly simple match. 
    Enter an engagement with a mindset of what is going on in the situation and how plan to achieve what needs to get done. Brings me to a third point. 
    Situational Awareness 
    You always want to make good HP trades --> Dishing out more damage than you take. If I peek, will I possibly get hit? If yes, find a different way to achieve the goal. Hit "+" to make your mini map bigger. Might be annoying but force yourself to look at it every 20 seconds if you're not already doing so. That little red dot that just appeared on the map could have a shot on you. Know to stay safe and not take hits, and push on when you feel that it is. Zoom out your camera and see if you can aim at whatever appears on the map if it's within draw distance. 
    The only real way to learn this would be to develop a sense of it yourself or watch streams. There really is no excuse to not show improvement after watching them. The goal isn't to mimic what they do exactly but to see where they go, why they go there, and what they do once they get to it. Imagine yourself being them. If what you would have done differs, ask why. One day you can #eatdix and #getclicked as well. 
    Combining all of this together, and being good at it is how you really start to perform well. tl;dr these are just some of the stuff that I can remember helped me along the way.

    Whether its pubs, TB or CW, the essence of the game comes down to 3 points.
    1.Have as many guns active in an area as possible
    2.Have as little guns pointed at your team as possible
    3.Don't get capped out.
    Get these 3 handled and you should be able to win more than you lose.

    tomhwk reacted to Lewisdevlin in Starting an Open League team.   
    We are a new team with an undecided name yet. With a solid group of 7 guys from Narwl, rel_3, otter and bulls. We are looking 3 guys who know what they are doing and have experience in 7/42 plus have the following tanks:

    -Primary- IS-3, 50 100, 13 90, T69, Pershing, T1
    -Secondary/Situational- Obj.416, WZ 132, RHM, T32, 110

    You need to be a good player and we'll play a few games together to see if you are a good fit for our team.

    There's only 3 slots left and we want to try and get together and get our play ironed out before the registration for open league even starts so we're ready right off the bat.

    Off-topic, but there is no opening position in the game that is worth throwing your tank away for blind. You have one healthbar worth of influence to trade away, and when it's gone there is no getting it back.
    If you have some advantage that you can leverage, sure, but driving blind into the brawl zone at the start of the game, without your higher tier tanks is basically asking for it.

    Very debatable actually depending on tank composition and spawn! Why would you throw your tank away and leave the game in the hand of the pubbies? Not smart in my opinion, especially when taking hill on mines is very risky. But yes I already said it was not smart of this tank he probably should have opposed hill at the very least but once again you didnt answer the question of what if he wins! Is the damage then still empty? So would you say all damage on a lose is "empty damage"?
