How about this:
It's OK to conduct tactical withdrawls sometimes. If you don't have the firepower to destroy with whatever's sheltering behind that hill or crest, stop trying. Just fall back, let them come foward from around whatever hill or crest they're hiding behind, and let all the other tanks and artillery behind you add the weight of their guns to the problem.
I like it and I'd like to run with it in regard to players deciding to push forward despite insurmountable odds. Often it's just a lack of patience or their eyes are bigger than their mouth, but I see plenty of tanks spot much more powerful tanks and decide to take them by surprise...even if the surprise isn't much of a tactical advantage as a T-34 against an IS-2.
I agree, there are plenty of times where it would be best to let the enemy move to you, but in the hustle friendlies advance aggressively and many die needlessly because of it.

I disagree with this one.

Alwyas, always, always have a plan. Use the 30 second pre-game period to communicate it to your teammates via text chat. Be prepared to adjust that plan as conditions on the battlefield change.
I like this, but not the part about [jokingly] milling around. Having a game plan and being able to adapt as conditions change is crucial. Added & credited.
