I am having trouble with tanks with passive playstyle (Non-british TDs, 50 100, 50 120, although last one is completely stock ) It's mostly because I have no patience to wait, most of the times I get punished is when I just don't wait bit longer for enemies to reach position. So, if someone could name few tanks that could teach me this valuable lesson, it would be great if they are in mid tiers (easier to get, possible to make profit). Currently learning with "Toothpick" Panther, although this one is a bit more forgiving then I want, since it has quite good reverse speed and armour can bounce from time to time. As for why am I not training it in aforementioned tanks, it's because they are quite expensive to run for a person without premium and with them I have to master more then one skillset, and I just want to focus now only on one, if possible.
Hello everyone, First off: new user here on the forum so again I'm a complete newbie ... Also a little background: I'm not a big gamer. I found this WoT through a colleague that told me about it. We have fun playing together which is how I started off. So I don't have any first person shooting experience at all, nothing, seriously! Needless to say, the first 5k battles I really sucked. I even didn't know about ratings and stuff. I thought the extend of a rating was the "service record" tab in the game. So I had my 7 year old son play with my account as well. But the more I started playing, the more I started bouncing (I noticed), the more I started dying without doing anything, the more I started to wonder why ... Started reading forums, how-to's, learned about scouting, spotting, angling, weak spots, ... and a world opened up to me In those days, I played mostly hellcat and T49 (the T67 now) because I could actually do a little. And some lights as well. I'm proud to say I never went full "yolo" in the beginning of a battle and died in 30 seconds. I already learned quickly that it doesn't help to see the tanks in the beginning while you can't shoot, but not anymore after the team is actually in position. As a result, my light tanks (T50 & ELC mostly at the time were pretty good: 53 % WR). Then finally I get to the T-50-2. How much fun that tank will be, right? I played it 10 times over a period of a few days, so not back to back. I lost all 10 of them. Not just losing, getting raped. I decided then and there, "ok, I will play this tank until I win, then I will sell it and NEVER play it again". It took me another 7 battles. So my stats in the T-50-2 is 6 % WR (thank you WG, for that awesome "random" MM and RNG, sure thing) I'm sorry, but even an afk or even team killer doesn't get that kind of *%&é@!! Anyways, I like to think that since then I've been improving. I'll never be an EJ, but probably good enough to learn a little respect Still, I have major problems. After 16k battles, some maps I still don't know. Ensk for example is horrible, I always seem to get myself in the most ridicilous positions. OK, enough background, now for my question: With the new lights being introduced, I wanne start the American line. I have a 3 skill crew in it (grinded with the chaffee races) but need some help. I can adjust my tactics during the battle as it unfolds, but the first location where I need to go in my light tanks when the counter hits 0 is still often a mystery to me on some maps. On maps like Abbey, Ensk, Fishermans bay, Himmelsdorf, Karelia, Kharkov, Komarin, Murovanka, Northwest, Pearl river, Sacred valley, Tundra and Windstorm, where do I go first? Where can I help the team out best in the beginning? A kinda long first post, sorry about that. Thx for any help and feedback
Hi, I'm not a great light tank driver, but I think it is time I started driving these tanks more to optimize my map knowledge. Because at the moment I know it is seriously lacking. In order to get a little more structured feedback I've decided to take some print screens of the minimaps (just taken off the internet, don't look at the quality) and indicated where I go in my lights when the counter hits 0. The lines indicate only the initial locations where I go to, and depending on the deployment of the enemies I relocate or not. To keep it simple, I only indicate where I go, not where I want to spot or what I would like to do (active/passive). I also assume that the team setups allow me to go there in the first place, so it is not taken into account in these print screens. I'm assuming I'm a tier 6-7-8 scout in a high tier battle. Now I know that on plenty of maps I go to the wrong initial location, severely limiting my role in the game, just because I started of wrong in the first place. I get trapped or killed and so can't do much for my team. Could you guys go over the print screens and give me some pointers? Things I do wrong? Better locations to go to? If possible, could you do it in a format: Map Go to ... your position wrong because of ... Anyway, I hope we can have a collection here map locations for light tanks which can consolidate a lot of information from all the great players here.
