Join a clan with an active Teamspeak. Many a hint leant quickly.

I mean, you can go to 1AR TS and you will learn things. Not necessarily about tanks however. :girl:

Thank you, I am following LemmingRush...his streams and videos are great. The problem is that most of the streamers usually play Tier 8-10 tanks while I'm playing mostly Tier 5-6-s and against Tier 7-8 tanks specially the [Japanese] HT-s, I'm feeling helpless!!!

 

For the JP HTs, knowing armor thickness and your gun pen is key. You want to hone that knowledge till you can judge whether you can pen a shot at "X"-angle. I recommend going to wotguru for weak spot guides, and as you get comfortable with the numbers to use the model viewer in tanks.gg to compare angles that you can pen from.

 

The JP HTs are notoriously clunky and slow to drive. Paired with poor vision range, you can abuse your mobility and vision advantage in the mid-game to flank and figure out which angles you can pen from.

This is is a lot of where I fall down and need to get better. I’m improving most days but I think knowing and learning these. Stats will def help me improve even more.

Well there is one thing that has helped me immensely, and that is the in game armor penetration indicator in the reticle. it has been a god send. Earlier i used to spend hours looking at the armor model in tanks.gg with the live armor model at different angles, but you still get only a rough indication.

I have enabled the armor penetration indicator and it is god sent. try it, because it is very accurate in game tool. No need to remember the armor models (but pray that rng takes your shot where it was aimed)

I just remember my pen and general weakspots. I won't know how much armour they have but generally I do know if I can pen or not with reasonable accuracy. 

 

I coudn't tell you the armour thickness of the LFP of an E100 but what i do know is that I will pen it every time with tier 9s and 10s.

Same with the superstructure of a JPE, except that i can probably pen it with 330 HEAT rounds.

Yup i do that too. but let me put it this way, if a heavy is sidescraping, there are times you can pen him, towards the end of his tank. generally i hold side shots waiting for him to pull out. But if the indicator is green i just take the shot and pen. Also where angling matters, like the type 5, pen on many tanks depends on the angle, the pen indicator just helps a little bit. I suppose when you play enough it will just become a reflex (i mean a lot of unicums just naturally go to the weakspot instead of searching about). but helpful against many tanks.

Also helps when i am circling a tank. wait for it to become green before taking the shot. saved me so many times (have seen people bounce of sides and back too often).

 

For example, yesterday i penned the 5A turret face (right next to the mantlet) thanks to the pen indicator. i did not even know it was a weakpoint. he was hull down and i thought i had no way of penning him. I was in the ST-I and firing gold.

does Party actually stream much?  I have never been able to catch him online and he has no videos saved.
Also, with only 180 followers how is he a twitch partner?  I know its harder now than it once was(im a long way from it) just curious though.

 With all the cheats & the unicorns on this forum ( which by the way in 5 years of playing this game the top posters on this forum I have never seen in random battles let alone the so called moderators ?..why is that ? ) Is it because they know if they play random battles their stats will suffer or because WG looks after their stats [Content removed]

 

Insults to WG and Moderators.  Content removed, escalated sanctions applied.

As Defiant_Duck mentioned earlier, I've found LemmingRush the most helpful in terms of learning to play better.

 

For another take on light tanks, I really enjoyed Ilya Red's content though he hasn't posted in about 2-3 months. He's not well known (just 5k subscribers) but a lot of helpful content. https://www.youtube....qVUMl6RtFQ65P_A
