Recommended tactic only for premade teams that communicate via TS. Avoid doing this when you're playing solo, there's an extremely high chance that it will go wrong for you and the others involved.

Yes it is made for CW/TC teams, but even in randoms its not a bad thing to put your 100% Maus in front of 10% IS7 to save him :Smile_Default:

+ repped both of you.
You just have to know when to do it, or you'll end up being teamkilled for "blocking" :Smile-tongue:

While it is true these tactics provide the highest benefit in Clan wars, you can take them as inspiration even for platoon battles or companies - a skilled platoon can profit greatly from similar "tricks" and increase its combat value so far that it is a decisive force even in situation where it isn't in top tiers.

So angling the tank actually means having your hull side on facing the enemy with the turret facing head on, I thought angling just meant having the whole tank slightly turned away from the enemy by just 10-15 degrees.

Quick question, the video mentions binding commands to hot keys but looking through the options screen there seems no way to do this, how to I make it so that when I press "T" while looking at an enemy target the message "concentrate your fire on this target" appears in the chat please?

Actually with some tanks it may be even better to show side and not angled front - for example with IS-7 you can use a lot of the spaced armor on sides, while just angling slightly exposes your ammo rack... And one friend insists that the same applies for E-100.

The command was moved to F2, you can get it back to T in settings.
