These videos are very good ... but, the problem is how many players see them and (most important) how many will change their (wrong) way of playing the game (and use different battle tactics according to the tank they use).

For me it is just an ugly wardrobe. But it has proven to be a strong, reliable tank - and thank you, especially Eekeeboo!

Look at that, actual education of the player base!

Now make it compulsory for everyone to watch that has less then a 1000 battles or less than 50% win rate, before they can press battle again. ;)

Really ? In our days , when the game is full with illegal mods , u expect that the heavy tanks are greats? Sorry , but no. The game is in a wrong direction. In technical conditions and in a real conditions, i admit that the heavyes are good , IS 3 IS 7 T32 etc etc , but when you meet a retard kid player with illegal mods , with aimbots , with lasers , and other sort of imbecil mods....how can u be good , when that player is targetting u from 500 m, and shooy at u on ammobay directly? How can explain WG that? Game will be maybe better when WG will stop to allow this players and the idiot and iilegal mods. It is no pleasure and no satisfaction in the game when 85 % of players are continuing to use illegal mods .

I think these videos are a great idea to help people use better tactics. I haven’t seen them yet, but having watched various youtube videos my play is now less bad...it’s still not good. So this may help some more.

As always there’s still a big butt in all this, when you’re faced with a fully upgraded enemy tank driven by a halfway decent player, with Stalinium armour, spamming gold ammo like a (self-censored), with a 7 skill crew and all the perks and improved equipment and you’re there in your new and shiney just purchased stock tank with a 50% crew no kit and no skills, then all the tactics in the world are unlikely to help. You won’t even be able to run away! So the most important decision you have to make is how you’re going to die!

 

and then it starts raining arty shells because there are 3 arty a side and the enemy tank is 2 tiers higher and your regular shells just bounce off for zero damage as you couldn’t afford any gold ammo yourself.

You know what would be even better training than an academy?

The ability to start a training map solo. So you can test your vehicles on them without having to partner up with more people.
Let it be open to up to 30, if they want to join in, but let a single player start it. We don't need a countdown, or a time cap, just access to the different maps.

Even better would be if you could test out vehicles you don't own on said maps, in order to find out what you want to research. Or buy.

Even better would be if you could throw in bots to shoot at.

Unfortunately the way the game was designed from the very beginning this is a current technical limitation and not possible :(
