Rushing Into Enemy Base

In the name of scouting. Get Set… Ready… Go… powwww, watch that scout go… rushing into the enemy base trying to get killed before the timer hits 30 seconds. There’s a term for it too – “suiscouting”. The objective really is to light up the whole enemy team and die in a blaze of glory. … Read more

Removing Equipment

Buying equipment for your tanks is a must once you have the credits to spare and when you make it to the higher tiers.  Moving it from tank to tank however can be impossible without gold for some equipment(usually the expensive ones).  Instead of selling it for a 50% credit loss there is an option … Read more

Garage Slots/Enlarging Barracks

Running out of garage slots happens to every player the more they play.  Buying them costs 300 gold a piece which is not that bad, but they go on sale often and waiting for those 150 gold garage slots are the best option.

Aiming

Hey, look! Another core basic feature of the game that many new players don’t do properly. It is imperative to aim well in order to damage your opponents (obviously), so why do people not take their time to aim fully? If you are in no immediate danger or are in a protected position take your … Read more

Upgrading your tank

This is a pretty fundamental part of World of Tanks but it is important to remember one simple rule when it comes to upgrades. Always go for the tracks and best gun first!

What to do when you spawn
