Hello all,

I am here to ask a question. I have seen two small icons beside a tank through a gameplay. See attachment.

It looks like two small arrows or a cross.

I can't realize what they do mean? I've read a manual but I haven't found something similar to these. Can you gimme a hint?
It prevents me from sleeping.

Thks and take care :D

Tom

It's simply to show if siege mode is on or off on the tier 8+ Swedish TD's. The numbers is how long it will take to change mode next time.

Something the T8 + are particularly adept at. Don't forget the cloaking device when in siege mode:)

Presently the mark only happens on Swedish TDs.

If you press the X key they go into "sniper mode" this makes them more accurate, and also allows them to elevate and depress over hills and ridges.

The downside is while locked in "sniper mode" they become very slow backwards and forwards.

The time on the picture is the number of seconds to enter and exit "sniper mode".

There are four ingame tanks currently capable of this

 

Strv -S1 (premium tier VIII)

UDES 03 - tech tree tier VIII

Strv 103-0 - tech tree tier IX

Strv 103B - tech tree tier IX

 

Please read about your tank before playing it.

Using X properly on Swedish TDs is extremely important.

Well Clueless player  at least has balls and asks in order to learn, wish 3/4 of the rest of the ''players'' would do the same

You said you saw it in a replay/video. Weren't you able to find out what it is by simply watching the video, or did the player die right at the start of the match?

Do you mind the attite? Can't you see it's a new player we're talking about?

 

Also, this was a legitimate question and he came to the right place to ask for it. Apart from this being a rather complex game.

 

And if you got to the conclusion the "clueless player is clueless and there's nothing to see" your post is pretty much needless to begin with.

I have seen this after my death... in postmortal seeing of a scene. I don't know tier higher than VI and only a US branch. So I have asked more experienced player for their kind answers and... I got what I need. Thks :D

Hello everyone, 

I cleaned this thread quickly and locked It. Tompok76 received an answer and the discussion is starting to move in the wrong side so I prefer to lock it.

Thank you for your understanding and have a good day. :honoring:
Jahpero
