I've been posting my video guides and replays in a topic I started in the newcomer section, as my content will more help a newer player rather than a long time seasoned vet. However, I will from here on out also make sure to put them in this topic as well, so more people have a chance to see them. Hopefully everyone finds them entertaining, helpful, or both. Feel free to offer comments at any point on any video!

 

I'll start off with my latest video in the Pz T25 on Cliff:

I was like "Yes! Another channel for good WoT vids so I can learn to get better."

 

...then I was like "Oh. I'm already subbed." YES!

Thanks, hopefully at the very least a fellow long time player like yourself gets some entertainment if I'm not really offering groundbreaking game mechanics for you.

Thanks for being a subscriber! I hope I can be of some usefullness to you, as I wish I had paid more attention to learning when I first started. My first 2k games or so involved a lot of quick deaths followed by a bit of head scratching until I caught on. I didn't even realize what the forums were until about 3k games in, lol.

Thanks as always Johnnie! Hope your experience with the German medium line is going well.

Yes, I am still in the "getting to know you" stage but I am enjoying the experience.

Grabbed Ace Tanker in the Lowe with this battle on Prok where I dealt nearly 3400 damage, blocked over 2500, and spotted for nearly 3300 by taking up the middle position in the depression by the railroad embankment and simply kept poking the ridge and moving:

Thanks Jake for posting that video. I am looking forward to playing the Lowe some this weekend. Only had 1 game in it so far but it seems like a very fun tank.

 

Really appreciate you taking the time to post these. Really helpful the way you talk through your decision making process

This time around I've got a Ace in my T29 for your viewing! Sand River is a favorite map of mine anytime I'm playing something with great gun depression, and the T29 feels right at home there:

GG Jake!

 

I notice you used the free camera to look at your tank a number of time during the game. What exactly were you checking when you did that?

I do that for a few reasons, one of which I touched on a bit in the video, such as checking to be sure I'm actually concealed by the bushes I'm hiding behind, or to simply get a view around (like to check for possible trees being knocked over which would give away enemy movements) without causing my binoculars and camo net to be deactivated.

 

It's a habit I've built up say that I can keep perspective of my surroundings a bit better without making something like a turret-less TD turn all over the place.

Some active spotting on Murovanka with the ELC grabs an Ace:

How about a video of ace'ing the T30 and completing TD-15 for the T-55a? I'm getting so close to that tank I can nearly touch it!
