Please add more stuff, I heard alot of Q's stuff from WOT Converts who did not know this due to some different concepts in WT:

- 1st thing to do on a new tank, before driving, switch research to PARTS. Parts allow you to repair battle damage, without this, the gameplay experience and success is... quite shit
- No need for 50 ammo types, usually AP works, there try to pick the one with the highest pen and highest velocity
- Arcade mode seriously sucks with the random shit aim indicator and campfest spotting
- Realistic battles are very agile, nice spotting system, takes skill to hit shit
- Try to research "FPE" soon after parts, then good ammo types
- Get to arty ASAP on medium tanks, its a big factor in some situations
- Train your crew!

So bad.

On most tanks the default ammo is actually the best, you want aphe unless you really can't pen things.

1) plaster tanks in the most obnoxious flag you can find
2) team mate in the way? shoot him!
3) hoggbert in the way? shoot him!
4) wrecking yourself is the ultimate faggot move. thus, do it at every opportunity
5) if you have arty, don't use your gun. just drop it at every possible chance.

If you have hair on your chest and your balls have dropped you queue for sim battles where you actually can flank people due to lack of magic spotting.

Can anyone explain to me how the gunsights in SB work? They don't seem to be comparable to the ones i know from Red Orchestra.

It's mainly the horizontal line which i don't quite get. I assume it's for rangefinding?

- On all tanks, first rep kit, second fpe than rush for orbital strike.
- If playing germans grind straight to pz4 f2, its only descent tank at rank 1 and 2 which they have. Rest gets stomped especially every rank 1 german tank.
- Shoot the drivers hatch than call in orbital strike, works nicley vs kv.
- Su 122 will blow up if shot in the right hatch (your right if you are facing it, his left), only works with f2 for rest i dont know.
- Get t-50 fast when playing rus
- t-28 is much strongr than it seems on paper and that gun will ammo rack nazis quite ofthen

When fighting T34's shoot the drivers hatch with some APHE variant.

I usually don't have the time to aim at a T-34 before his shot rapes my early PIV variant ;)

why would you ask this when you say you have an IS-1 in the other thread.

Because you can get mediums so good that it doesn't really look like I'm helping my team by using an IS-1 instead of a t34/85 which respawns

im thinking mediums 3 spawns heavies 2 would be better

but then i'd get a bunch of 'hurf blurf it's not hardcore enough' morons on me prolly saying that

i dont give a shit about the little 'facts', it's a general good guide to choosing ammo

AP good against unsloped
APC capped is better vs sloped compared to AP
BC ballistic cap improves flight characteristics
HE filler improves internal damage
HVAP/APCR improved short range pen at cost of internal damage potential.
HEAT range independant pen for moderate internal damage potential.

Look, fraction of the space, same info, no silly 'facts'

Since people keep moaning how campy this game is, here is a quick replay on Tier 4 RB in a Stock Panther (no Parts or FPE or Arty) and how to kill in a flanking gameplay.
Hope this can give some inspiration to wot converts or arcade campers.

To replay put into WT/replays dir and go to replay in your in game menu.

Also very important:

Set Grass distance to lowest, esp. for Sim and RB.

Possibly but it mainly lets you see through vegetation that other players may not be able to due to having grass enabled.
tl;dr
no grass it wall hacks
