I hope WG keep releasing videos like these, they're getting way more informative than the older videos.

Looks like the folks at WG are finally understanding how to make informative videos. Congratulations!

 

This video (and others like it) should be mandatory for all players, new and old.

Excellent video! Well done Wargaming!


 

I also enjoyed your Do's and Don'ts vids in the past.


 

Did a double check and they are still in the New Players Click Here section.


 

Short and worth the watch.


 

Still guilty of running straight out there and being greedy though...

I'm glad WG is making these, so much more informative than any other spotting system video I've seen.

 

I need to revisit these training videos, and work on memorizing armor profiles like I used to do a couple years ago; would certainly improve my gameplay.

Wow, that was amazingly informative, particularly the part about vision and spotting points. I'd always assumed that the gunner's vision point had to be pointed in the general direction of a target in order to see anything.

Nice video. I learned that you don't actually have to be looking in the direction of the enemy if you're using the one on the mantlet. I always thought that the gunners view port/hole had to be facing the enemy to actually spot them.

That is a good video. I'm a long time player. Even I learned a couple new things and had others reinforced.
