hello Blitzies, 

First, I’d just like to say that this seems like a great game. Looked at lotsa clips on YouTube, read some comments, and there’s a lot of people with chips on their shoulders, but maybe I’ll have one too when I’ve played a bit. 

My main gripe is fellow noobies who think the point of the game is to sit in the base and watch the timer go down, insteead of fighting. I’ve played a couple of really annoying games today. Okay, we won, but me, and whatever other players weren’t bots, didn’t really score any XP or credits :confused:  It’s not all games, but there’s a lot of players who wanna rush straight at the base. They don’t get that you don’t get much from winning quick. I want to play tier II and III for a bit, say a few hundred battles, and save up XP, which is hard  and leaves you feeling a bit unfriendly towards your own team. Well, the non bots anyway.

Leave the smegging base alone until at least a bit later in the game, like when you need to flush out a camper, or when bots are left :great:

It's always been that way. Using them as bait can help.

thing is new players fall into 2 types, yolo monsters or campers. The former jump straight into the battle and end up getting reck'd rather quickly and then the team moans. The latter either camp in the TD spots, regardless of the tanks they are in or head straight to the base in a sometimes vain attempt to win, again incurring the wrath of fellow team mates. This is normal with new players I am afraid for numerous reasons. Many do not understand the game mechanics, such as armour profiles, gun pen, damage output or even load times and therefore are quite rightly cautious. Some think that the charge of the light brigade is the correct method, for the same reasons as those who camp - lack of understanding of the overall game mechanics. This game is actually a rather difficult game to fully understand, there are so many things going on all at the same time and so much that really needs to be understood about the maps, tanks, gameplay itself and tactics. New players lack this knowledge to begin with, because all they want to do is get to those bigger, tougher and derpy tanks - which is not the correct way to approach it because the higher you go the more experienced players you will come across and they will reck you really quickly indeed, far quicker than in the lower tiers and with a lot more pain.

 

Whilst it is annoying to be in teams that head for the base outright, this rarely happens in the more experienced higher tier games. My advice is hang in there, dont rush through the tiers and get an overall understanding of the game, its mechanics, the maps and how tanks perform. it will serve you well later, believe me.

Vineyards - I will often go cap if I can’t convince the heavies to not go city.  It helps distract the reds and draw the enemy out and often I can get some shots in to reds in the city.  Maybe it’s my being a yolo monster and deluding myself but I find it pretty effective.

ah Vineyards is a completely different ball game! If you have a goo hull down tank, with gun depression, such as the T34 (1776) then going to base is one of the best strats on this map - assuming the rest of your team understand what will happen next of course lol - so no, you are not deluding yourself at all, its a good tactic to use if only the rest of the team understood the game
