So what is the best way to play MTs with very slow aim times (3-4 seconds in reality rather than the 2.5 seconds quoted)?  Just play like normal MT and pray for good RNG on partially aimed shots or sit further back and be a mobile TD? (I'm still playing tier 4 and 5)

A few things I do... approach firing positions with turret pre aimed and preferably slow down before your get there to keep moving dispersion minimised. Second is to be prepared to miss often in exchange for minimising exposure and keeping your health. Note try not to re poke same spots as that will allow them to pre aim.

Couple of things I have used for these tanks, 

  • utilise hidden firing positions to give yourself enough time to aim
  • get in close and flank so that you are firing into weaker zones of the enemy tanks, aiming is not so crucial
  • do as ezz suggests and keep changing your firing position so they need additional time to aim at you.
  • bait shots and then aim while they are reloading.

On some tanks the dispersion on hull movement is very different to dispersion on turret movement. You can exploit that in some tanks so you reduce the bloom out before it starts to aim.


For example you have tank with relatively low hull dispersion but horrendous turret dispersion. Approach a ridge line slowly with the gun pointed in the direction you most likely think the enemy will be and keep  the right mouse button depressed to prevent any turret movement.


Because you aren't moving the turret, only the hull, the bloom is less. With any luck you then will only need a small correction to shoot.


Slow aim tanks aren't quite such an issue so long as you don't blow out the aim circle so much if possible.


In the reverse situation where hull bloom is much worse  you want to find opportunities to shoot with just turret turning .


Oops Ezz basically said the same thing already.. what he said.
