pushing an o-i isn't a great idea. it's too heavy and it reaches its speed. pushing frendly tank is a good idea only if it is a vehicle, which has just not enough horsepower to hold speed close to the top - t28 prototype, amx 40, vk 36.01 h (this one moves pretty well on its own, but it can be a deadly ram machine when pushed by a cromwell or two). 

pushing a 150t vehicle is almost pointless - maybe he will go 1km/h faster, but in that case it would be better for those two meds to be already at some good position. 

it reminds me how people were pushing my Black Prince without knowing, that BP has a speed limit of 20 and doesn't go more than 22, but has a good engine and has no troubles keeping it... so they would push me on the way to hill on malinovka only to get to the top later than me, because their hp/t ratio was worse :D

I am still learning who to push, but some OI tanks go fast with a push. not all but some. gold tanks seem to get a good push, 

 

more tankers should push the slow tanks.

No, they should not push. If its uphill and beneficial for the win then yes but in most situations these players are missed at the front to spot and delay. Furthermore I always feel uncomfortable when some inexperienced player tries to push me right through to the enemy base.

I dont and let them do their good deed for the day but in the majority of the cases its a useless approach since many tanks cannot or only barely be pushed.

 Get pushed quite often in my TOG , doesn't add much to the speed but

 the thought is there. I give a polite thank you in chat for the effort.

You don't get more guns to the front line faster. If you're pushing thw wrong tank it won't get there any faster and your team might lose an advantagous posistion becuase the mediums didn't do their job and secured it before the enemy mediums did. The one's that just stop when pushes realizes this and tries to tell you do your job, although they're not very polite. I prefer to tell them in chat not to push me.

 

1. Are you giving away good posistions if you push that tank? If yes, don't push.
2. Is that thank much larger/heavier than you? If yes, don't push.
3. Is that tank limited by a low speed limit (which it can reach by it self), if yes, don't push
4. If you decide to push does that tank gain a atleast fair speed increase? If no, don't push.

 

It will be somewhat difficult but you'll figure it out quickly if you compare speeds when you push and don't push. It also relies on which tank you're driving.
