Pro tip: If its not a T110E5, you're not playing the right heavy.

These pro-player tips are always disappointing because they tell you very little in the way of tips but rather gush about their favorite tank. I'm not a pro-player and even I could do that.

First off thanks to all the WGLNA pro players for taking thier time for this 

 

but wouldn't this been better at the Begining of the Heavy Week instead of almost at the end so players can have the information ahead of time ( just my $0.02 cents worth in the scheme of things )

How to drive Heavy Tonk: 

  1. Drive forward
  2. Laugh maniacally as they bounce harmlessly off of you
  3. Get P.O.ed when they double tap 2 and now your armor don't mean sh!t

So incredibly true.

 

Anyways, I adore the Japanese heavies despite the fact they are glass cannons (aside from the occasional match when they can't figure out my armor is too strong for them to pen from the front). The higher tier Japanese heavies I do have the occasional match that I can just go ham, but more often than not, I'm just ticking off other heavy tanks by breaking modules with HE or nuking mediums that drive in a straight line towards me and I remove about 700 hp from their hit point pool as punishment

Pro tip:  Always use Camo Net and Binocs on all your heavies and snipe from behind bushes and near the red line to ensure you don't get spotted and you play no useful role in the game.  Then once you've lost make sure to call your team noobs and tell them how much they suck and how you did more damage than them even though 80% of it was useless damage at the end after the game had already been decided.

Bingo,,,, Watch WGLNA Gold league and really see. They play Medium tanks or Auto Loaders most of the time. Really fun to play that style of game..... hahaha

How is the E75 not part of the tier 9s to select.

That's what I was thinking for the WZ-111-14. Oh well. :P

 

Also, 113 was mentioned! I approve already! :teethhappy:

Use alot of cover and sidscraping, and follow the main group so that you can assist them far better. But of course at times when necesary follow the flanks

Pro's don't play heavies because they have been nerfed into the ground, light tanks have better chances at bouncing shells off their armor than heavies! Fix your game WG b4 you try to sell more people on this poorly coded game.
