Always take repair-kit, so you can repair your track and maybe have a chance against said medium.

Nice guide. Don't agree with 4 and 8 but for the rest very nice. Especially the drawings ;)

Elaborating on 4 and 8;
4) If you are swirving around in your medium, blocking all incoming fire from your comrades, that's asking for a friendly shell in the side. Just get out of the way when you have plenty of backup!
8) If you are one of the 2 remaining mediums against 1 heavy, don't search him out, but go cap with both tanks...

This is only possible if you are driving an US TD with a turret...

4) You are right! But some times you need to use that TD as cover for enemy arty or other enemys... And friendlys need to take a propper aim. Tankers and arty need to let the aiming circle to close and arty need to aim at the fare side of the target.. If a friendly tank is filling half of you aiming circle or more, you might better not take the shot...
8) This would be my action aswell..! His point is, don't go one by one, don't on your own. Team up and work together...

If I should not do all the tips there, THAT would make me a Bad player :P

More serious: many facts. Good read. Nice pictures :)

What NOT to do:


1. Act moronic. Let me elaborate...

1. Stop throwing yourself at the enemy one brave (stupid) tank at a time. Either move as a group and support one another or don't go at all.

2. Don't haphazardly run around out of cover. Cover is everything; you love cover and want to hug it like your mother.
