Nice effort (didn't read it).

 

Now, if only we could get the people who didn't already know this to visit the site/forum and actually take notice.... Maybe they'll have a small muscle spasm and accidentally click the link in the launcher instead of [PLAY]...

 

Edit: You forgot to add this to the end of the article: "PS. Everything previously stated in this article may easily be bypassed by the use of premium ammunition. Premium ammo; the winner's choice!". (You can have that slogan WG, my gift to you...)

No matter what ammo you use, you still cannot pen paper at a 15-20 degree angle..

*thinks of VK 72.01 Krupp*

*thinks of side-scraping*

My batchat will just flank any side-scraper HT and 1000 - 1800 burst in him.

This used to work in the good old days, your beast can has 300 armor pen, you cant penetrate angled Maus, do not worry load your super-uber gold ammo, now you can penetrate 400mm armour, penetrate that poor Maus, repeat the steps until Maus is dead :) now close this topic, make some discount on premium ammo. Dismissed !

Ah but prem ammo cost loads of credits...(in his best WG representatives voice)

 

Shame they allow anyone but the most tomato like tomato to print credits with missions/events/prem accounts and tanks. Also overlooking the fact that 

prem ammo = more pens = more credits/xp allowing more prem ammo use.

%85 of player base does not apply sidescraping effectively and you are just commenting trying to troll every officer's thread.Ok mediums can flank sidescrapers, we all know that,but sidescraping is far better than being destroyed by frontal low plate shots from 300+ meter range.Plus this is not 1 vs 1 game,surely even if that theoritical batchat unloads whole clip,after flanking he will find himself much closer to sidescraper's allies.

 

So stop unnecessary comments.

Like u said about spaced armor,some tanks like the Tiger 2 have tracks on the turret,and their thickness does NOT effect the shell.  WHY?

Don't be funny. If that HT is alone,that is his problem. And allies? You mean another bunch of tomatoes?

Im scared!:teethhappy:

its a step in the right direction, BUT since every tank has apcr / heat availabe the tanks in wich sidescrape actualy gives you a benefit compared to popshots are few...most matches are with unskilled players on one team and avg-good on the other..so one side gets roflstomped in 2min..its just the rng (donator factor) wich side you end up in..

 

 

 

if you try to educate people its TOO LATE they already grinded / botted their tier 10s..who will read this small link?

force people with low rating (even personal rating will work) to eu2 server untill they learn something, force a FULL tutorial with every explaination and training, if not done with 95%+points no random matches, if not xxxx personal rating no purchase of tier9+...

but you never do that you'd rather give tier10 prems so they can buy in more easy..right?

Well they also tell you the auto-ricochet angles. The word says it, it autmatically ricochets... That means premium ammo is irrelevant.

 

But yeah, prem ammo does neglect any that is said here.

Not completely, just mostly.

You can still angle to make most tanks prem' ammo bounce but it transfers the skill and luck from the person firing and forces it onto the person taking the hit.

 

ie. Pop your turret up from behind a ridge in your T-54 spam a prem shell when half aimed at the front of tank X. Retreat.

If tank X manages to manoeuvre to get an acute/auto bounce angle in time, he stands a chance. Otherwise lose HP.

Good guide, while gold ammo makes it harder, sidescraping is still the #1 tektik to win games...

 

(and those who think sidescraping is so useless, please teach me, im waiting :XD )

If this was a tactic actually used by real tanks in real battles [edited]

 

But it wasn't and I don't.

 

And for the prem ammo whingers - boo hoo hoo, like you lost your invincibility. [edited]
