★ TargetDamage (Nice weakspot & expected damage site)

Stat-Tracking Sites:

★ WoT Stats (My favorite)

★ Age of Strife (No longer shows recent stats, only overall)

★ VB Addict (I know it's listed earlier - It also functions as a stat site!)

Useful External Programs & Modifications:

★ Team Speak 3 (Voice Communication Platform, most Clans require this)

★ Discord (Better than TS3 in my opinion)

★ Tank Inspector (Great tool for examining armor layouts, "soft" stats of a tank, etc.)

★ Imgur (Needed for uploading images to the Forums)

★ TinyPic (Another option for uploading images to the Forums)

 



Useful Twitch / YouTube Channels:

★ QuickyBaby's Twitch & YouTube (Entry-level Super Unicum gameplay)

★ Jingle's YouTube (Mostly entertainment videos)

★ TheFochYou (Sir Foch)'s YouTube & Twitch (Super Unicum gameplay without using Premium ammo)

May want to update the IS-3 one, the turret roof weak-spot is much much harder to hit now, as the thin section is smaller with the HD model.

Yup yup, will do. A lot of my personal guides need some updating, I'll work on doing so this next week or two. I also have a few new guides coming as well. ;)

I would like to submit my YouTube Channel for your consideration to be added to the list of Streamers.  My goal is to fill a niche where I specialize in showing beginners and intermediate players how to play better by playing a wide range of tiers (from I - X) as I evolve and learn from better players myself.  Link is in my sig below.

 

Thank you.

You should add Zeven's stream to your collection.

 

He's as good if not better than those you already have, yet has a great advantage over them. His stream is a teaching stream. He tells his viewers what he's doing and explains why while he plays. He's always assessing (outloud) the overall battle, teams and tanks left. He's the best streamer for anyone that wants to learn while they watch great game play.

 

http://www.twitch.tv/zeven_na

 

His schedule is on his stream page, so very easy to know when to tune in.

I'd need to get a proper setup for streaming. But you will spot me chatting on various streams at times (Primarily Circon's, QB's and SirFoch's).
