I'd say that you guys are getting better and better at this!

It is a shame, that the players who would really require learning such generally do not watch, or do not understand your video guides..

In order to help players reach such material, I've a suggestion:
Create a "GUIDES" tab or hyperlink to your game launcher!
I know that there is the small YouTube icon in the bottom right corner, but players are just lazy..

Thanks for your suggestion – this is a good idea; I’ll pass it on to the team.
I agree, our videos are getting better and better thanks to your feedback  :smile:

Nice one,
Try to see/read among the humongous amount of information that are available when I have some time left over to advance in the different avenues possible of this game.

Excellent advice on maintaining speed in the guide. Shame I can't do that any more in my VK2801. Sorry, I probably should be posting that in the 8.4 German Light Tank Feedback thread, but I noticed that a community manager was actually reading this one. After several pages of consistent feedback in the other thread from upset paying customers about the nerf being massively overdone, the community team hasn't deigned to respond. Yet they take the time to pat themselves on the back here after just a few posts.


Please set the VK2801 speed back to 72 and put the fun back in. The rest of the nerf was fine. Your metrics should be telling you no-one is playing it any more, and that associated 105 HEAT sales will have flat-lined. It's bad design both for users and for you guys commercially.

This guide is pretty good, thanks!
I LOLed hard around 5:00 though: "three heavy or medium tanks with accurate guns", one of them being the IS-3. :D

Nice video.
The absence of the VK2801 says more* than your patch notes though.  :sad:

*Admittance of loss of status and meaning

Yeah you right man. IS3 accuracy 0.4, but T32 got 0.41 an IS6 got 0.46(yeah IS6 for scouting) just T-34 at  0.35.
So where Lowe, E-50M, E5 and T-62A gone with accurate guns?  :unsure:  Left only tier 8 heavy tanks and not even snipers.   :sceptic:  Please don't make such simple mistakes  :blinky: Yeah i know you telling players to take sniper tanks and to practice on their own, But when you telling that participants will be heavy and medium tanks with accurate guns and there they are gone for some reasons im getting a bit confused. Maybe IS3 and T32 are sniper tanks too  :ohmy:
But yeah, Thank you for such nice video tutorial. I love it and i hope there will be much less suicidal scouts. Im learning from your tutorials a lot too :harp:  Always Happy to watch it.  :great:
