Welcome, and do not fret. I see that you are lost and confused, in need of guidance and support. Lucky for you, thou have stumbled upon the Scorpion's Den. Aside from venomous arachnids, you shall find guides-a-plenty within this humble abode.

 

This is your one-stop shop to find anything and everything related to World of Tanks. Whether it be my own gameplay guides, content from other players or even perhaps useful websites, programs, etc. – You can find it here.

 

If these are the drones you were looking for then sit back, turn on some pimping music and read away - All of your questions shall be answered here!


 

Guides are being updated. Color key to text:

  • Red = Outdated content.
  • Orange = Outdated, but potentially usable.
  • Green = Current information, but may have issues.
  • Blue = Current & without issues, but will be updated later.
  • Purple = Best reading experience.

 

My personal collection of guides:

 

Game Mechanics: 

 

Tanks:

 

Top 5 Lists:

 

"Fair and Balanced" - Tier for Tier Tank Overview Series:

  • Tier 1 tanks                         
  • To be added to soon

 

Maps:

  • This section appears to be empty. Sad.  Fear not however! It shall be added to very, very soon! 

 

Analysis of Great Games:

  • Episode 1   ★ - Allied teamwork vs. enemy overconfidence (113, 7k damage, Lakeville)
  • Episode 2   ★ - Creative positioning against insurmountable odds (Grille 15, 8k damage, Serene Coast)

 

Good Sportsmanship:

 

Other:

 

A compilation of guides from other players:

 

Valuable web resources:

  • tanks.gg - Go there and use it. Seriously.
  • World of Tanks Wiki
  • Tank Compare (Website for comparing the stats of tanks)
  • WoT Info (Great site for stats access, camo value calculation, etc.)
  • VB Addict (Somewhat of an all-in-one information site for WoT)
  • WoT Replays (Great place to upload your WoT replays, and watch other's replays as well)
  • Rita Status Report Blog (Un-official, "leaked" leads about possible WoT development in the future)
  • WoT Labs Forums (Great place to ask others for help, lots of skilled players hang around there)
  • TargetDamage (Nice weakspot & expected damage site)
  • ArmorInspector (It's like tanks.gg and Tank Inspector on crack. Confusing interface though, which takes a while to get used to)
  • To be added

 

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!)
  • WoT Labs (Probably the most commonly used one)

 

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.)
  • Aslain's Modpack and Forums (My personal favorite modpack. All of the mods are in compliance with the Fair Play Policy.) 

 

Additional Links for Easy Access:

 

Useful Twitch / YouTube Channels:

 

I genuinely wish you the very best of luck and fun, both in-game and in real life! I hope this collection of guides and other useful content has proven to be useful! Good luck out there, tankers!

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.
