Problem I have when in the #3 position is that if I don't pull up far enough, # 5 will push through between me and # 1 to get a shot... since of course, they feel they are the only person who knows how to kill the big red tank.

And yes, when I see #2 blocking #1.. I typically will pulled back far enough that # 1 can at least pivot and pull around #2 to get back.

Then we can both sit behind #2 when he rolls up to shoot.

Lert is so helpful! I survived 10 battles with 20 kills using his Techniques.
Sad part is, I still am on my Tier 3 American Tank Destroyer, T82 :( .

I'm sorry but the camo thing does not work...I have the camo net, the 100% skill and stayed behind the bush like you mentioned, did not work.  I haven't move I stayed there like a mouse, and boom...they shoot me.  I even tried this staying behind thinking of not getting spoted by the little enemies and same results...dead...
I still canot see them but they can see me...
This does not work...will not try again, from now on I will stay behind rocks...the only thing that seems to work...
I still appreciated your advice, time and effort...I'll keep reading and recommening tour guides...

I just wish all the noobs were forced to sit and read this thread and several others on the forums.

If you are a newbie read the forums to try and understand the basic tactics of this game. If you have questions about what you read ask! Everyone started off as a newbie so we are here to help prevent you from becoming a noob and a burden to your teams. It will make your game experience, and ours, that much better.

That's exactly why I've spent the past 5 days on Wiki and these forums, gettin' educated. As soon as 8.9 is finished updating on my computer, I'll be back in the slug fest.  :trollface:

Item the third: "How do I camo?"

Posted Image

For the purpose of this demonstration, the enemy is off to the left of this picture. The three little tanklets have all found themselves a bush ("This is my bush, there are many like it but this one is mine") with intent to get the camoflage bonus that bushes give. However:

- Tank 1 has his corners sticking out of the bush, and is therefore not camoflaged.
- Tank 2 is only partially behind the bush, part of him is visible alongside the bush. He is therefore not camoflaged.
- Tank 3 is completely hidden behind the bush, therefore he does get the camoflage bonus.

Bushes only work if you're completely obscured by them.


I've been doing this all wrong. Been hiding in the bushes and not behind them. Now i know better. Also the colored shoot areas was nice. I knew where to shoot, but this will help me refine my shots.

Lert,

 

Just started playing and just found this guide.  HUGE help to me.  Love the MSPaint pics.  Very illustrative and will (hopefully) improve my game.
