Hey,

 

I would like to know your opinion about each role in WOT. I kinda often come across players who tend to say that [instert a tank role] is easy/hard to play.

I think everyone is somehow right and at the end of the day each roll has its own mechanics, pros and cons etc.

 

You might want to use the poll or write down your own order list.

 

Here's mine (from the hardest to easiest)

 

1, Heavy tanks - you have to know how to angle your armor, mobility makes you easy target for arties, you're the one who should know each weak spot of yours as well as your enemies'

2, Light tanks - literally have no Hp means your movement is the key to victory, you are not able to pen everyone even in the weak spots, have to know where to spot and how (passive/agressive)

3, Medium tanks - It's the same as heavy tanks but I think that heavy tanks have more pressure in the match so my opinion is neutral

4, Tank destroyers - most of the time just sitting in the bush waiting for the team spotting

5, SPGs - ok, timing might be hard but that's all

 

If you think that YOUR main role is underrated then write it down. Lots of ppl might don't know the "secrects" of YOUR role.

 

EDIT: Roll x Role oops :)

All odds - and WG - are against you. You will not survive.

Knowing how to shoot a tank that's hull down, is a must. So being aware of the topography, is important.

Waiting that extra second or two so you can hit 3 or 4 tanks, and not the one zooming about the battlefield.

Relocating after every shot. 

Which leads into; choose your spot carefully. All the usual artillery spots, I know about, and will hurl a shell or two in that location, when nothing else is spotted.

Which, again, leads to, know about passive scouting locations.

Communicate with the team(lol). Ask if they have been shot by an unseen enemy tank. Or even if they can tell you where arty is.

Knowing how to track, so your team mates(lol), can then destroy the enemy tank quicker.

Well arty without a doubt.

So here I am playing a SPG with a long reload trying to watch Still Game on Netflix and rolling a cigarette....

Talk about multitasking:)

There is not an easy class. All of them require their own skill set. Same goes for all the subclasses.

Scouting is very easy,

scouting effectively is very hard.

Also sometimes you can't rely on spotting and

need to do the damage on your own, and generally LTs aren't

very good at that.

Still people need to understand that scouting is a role; not a

tank class.

Sometimes the one who needs to move forward and spot is not a light,

sometimes it needs to be a heavy or a well armored medium, and so on.

Did that a lot. On some map HTs are better scout than LTs. :)

This is something that I wish all idiot TDs and Artys understood...

 

They expect the LT to feed them spotting despite maps being corridor and the entire enemy team being pre aimed on all the obvious points.

 

Sometimes a Super Heavy spots better :teethhappy:

Light tanks complicated? They only have to drive around a bit and then get killed, or that is what tends to happen, so how complicated is that?

clearly lights, as they could have a key role to win a match, while getting punished hard for mistakes they make.

I voted TD's. all that camping induces brain dmg... (thats why I brawl with every TD until i get the one that I actually want to play)

 

Look at IKV90 for example. how your going to carry in that pos? LTing is super straight forward and EZ compared to TDing.

Most complicated :  Cheese, Salad, egg, ham and english mustard on a floury barm cake ( unbuttered of course).

Getting the right amount of mustard on the ham  is really tricky, but worth it..

Too much salad and you ruin it.

A decent hand sliced mature cheddar .

Freshly sliced & boiled egg

Floats my boat.

 

As for Tanks  Im just average to poor in them all. Tough Id say  with all the city / corridor maps  LTs  ( and keeping them the right way up)
