Update noobs: if new release (9.17) expect all game play to change.  Things like "oo, bad guys seem me, 9 shots later I'm dead, 6th sense comes on."

 

Soooo disregard sixth sense.

2 Questions

 

- I have over 1500+ battles, been asked to join a platoon on many occasions.  But nowhere is a button or pop-up to accept.  How can I accept???

 

​- How does one do the "Attention E5" etc. getting the map squares to light up?

Bottom right corner of your garage has the notification tab, invites will be there. If its in-battle you need to click on the plus next to your name in the list. 

 

Control+click the minimap square for the attention thing.

Guys,

 

I have created a youtube channel, where I focus how to use light tanks effectively. 2500 wn8 65% winrate on a light tank per day is real!

I have 2 gun marks on all LT8, some 3 gun marks, object 260 in the garage.

Currently I'm working on a series of the videos about how to scout effectively, what behavior the most effective for a scout is. The first video of the series about game mechanics is already there.

Also, there are light tank reviews (of course, I play other classes, and on demand I can make a review on any tank). In my videos I use only my own replays, because I think if you tell the person how to play this tank, then go show it (unlike QB, for example). Also, the light tanks aren't popular, many light tanks have little understanding about what they do in the battle. I want everyone to be effective. Assisting for 3 or 4 thousand damage in every battle is real. It's hard, but real. 

Anyway, check out my channel, please, there are several videos already, feel free to criticize. I'm very sorry for making kinda an ad for myself, but I'm really seeking for your support, I really need it. I would be very grateful, if you watched a video or two (or maybe subscribed and watched all of them :) )

Guys, new update on my channel! I made a video about detailed bush mechanics with experiments in the training room. How to shoot from the bushes and not get spotted! If you still need the basics about spotting mechanics, it's also there.

https://www.youtube....qVUMl6RtFQ65P_A

Is helpful for everyone.

 

The two videos about game mechanics are the introduction of the series of videos on how to play light tanks effectively. How to spot for several thousands of damage even on tier 5-6 light tanks. How to keep a stable winrate on LTs.

 

I'm an extremely experienced light tanks player, got lots of gun marks on all light tanks (2-3 gun marks), have 260, so I have some idea of what i'm talking about :D Please, have a look and support me!

I played this game...probably 14 months ago....didn't understand the game at all and quit after a month.

 

Yesterday I install the game again....2 days of complete frustration and nothing has change. I can't even figure out how to change the view on and of the battlefield area. I did the beginners training film several times (again) and it show very little on how to do, little to nothing.

 

With the skills I have learned over the last months....I still can't justify having the game on my computer and taking up disk space.

 

I can't image why on gods green earth anyone would want or enjoy this game?

 

It pulls you around with a ring in your nose and I don't know why any of it is happening. I don't understand anything here.

 

I moved to wows (world of war ships) and found the game easy to understand and play. It's the complete opposite here.

It was kinda funny to see a StuG III get stuck in a tier 6 battle with me. The StuG, who was an enemy, kept following me for absolutely no reason, didn't even bother to shoot me. By the way, Are the Mauschen, VK 100.1(P), and Pzkmpf. VIII going to be new tanks? Or are they replacing other existing tanks?

Check the tech tree, they are already in the game.
