I'm a slightly new player and have found a recent affinity for Clan Wars/Strongholds. Although I'm a newer player and Won't be calling, much less warleading for quite some time, any of you guys out there got any tips for a new caller and possible warleader to get better in the mean time?

 

Thanks in advance!

Warlead is the person who sets up the detachment and makes the tank lineup pre-battle.

Caller and Warlead ar usually the same person, but I've been in instances where they are two separate people in those positions...

Learn to think on your feet pretty fast. Things can change just like that. Make sure the people in the battle are respectful enough to not talk about other stuff during the battle, Keep it to a Minimum and Nobody over talk the caller. Try not to stall, I know some things may be obvious like, Dont sit in front of the Kv-2 but some people are waiting for you to call that out. I dont like to Micromanage every little thing but If I dont there is always that one person who is 5% health peeking out at a tank thats 100% health.  

 

A good idea is to go into Strongholds and play around with Calling. You can see the other team and it helps get some good practice in since the Player Numbers match up with Clan war Numbers. Like Tier 6 is 7v7, Tier 8 10v10, and Tier 10 is 15v15.

make sure your team is "focusing" fire.

don't let players bring just anything make sure they have the right tank.

you don't need more than 1 scout.

it is not recommended to use heavy tanks in T-6 strongholds.

Always keep your base being capped in mind if you are getting farther away and not all of the enemy is exposed.

get to know the maps on a personal level so you have an idea of what will work.

remember there will be times when you need to have the awareness to call an "audible".

don't bring arty things happen way to fast for arty to even contribute @ tier 6.

don't split up your force, try to keep it to 1 scout checking your flank and everyone else wolf packing.

 

most important you will not get better if you quit. don't give up.

It also helps to use a tool like wottactic.com to plan strategies and provide pre-battle briefings (at least in clan wars), so everyone knows where they're going and what they're doing before you load in.

There is alot of advise that can be giving so I leave this here:

 

1.  Remain calm during the battle, don't call out every mistake a player does.   

 

2.  If you want to the respect of your players own up to a mistake.  If you have a bad call, don't blame the players for the lose.
