For example im playing heavy tank in highway map. I spawned at upper base. I went to city and we somewhat win it. I lost plenty of hitpoints. Then i deciced to approach their base from J-K line. How can i play against tds at J1/K1? There are tons of bushes in there. Im pretty sure i cant spot them no matter what. But they can spot and shoot me without getting spotted. What should i do in that situation?

Some advice:

 

- Don't do it alone, if you are, wait for others or turn back to help your team. Can't dig out bushcampers alone

- Locate any possible spotters for these bushcampers & take them out first. This will greatly reduce the TD's effectiveness.

- Use the terrain; in your situation use the terrain depression to remain hidden for as long as possible (can be you have to relocate a bit, the road & bridge has some trees that can provide some cover from spotting.

- Break the line of fire, use the various houses to keep them between you & the possible bushcamper locations.

- If you constantly get lit up & you're in an armored tank: sidescrape at a steep angle to bait shots. This also helps to keep their guns pointed at you ipv weaker tanks that come from a different angle. No need to expose weak parts. Shooting drops camo levels & can help friendlies with better viewrange to spot them & able to return fire.

 

Edit: below advice is also good. Have to adjust your playstyle on the circumstances (who's left, what is going on, where are my teammates). It can often be better to ignore the basecamping TD's for the moment & help your teammates somewhere else first, especially on low HP.

Depends on the overall situation: Were you the only tank left on your team, what happened on the other flank, what is the overall score, what actual tanks are involved, ...?

Generally speaking I see two options:

a) go back to base and let them come

b) support your teammates attacking the enemy base from distance

 

If for some reason you must attack with your low-HP tank, try to approach the likely enemy position from hard cover (rocks, buildings, ridgelines) to negate their vision advantage.

If you know they are waiting for you then you need to go somewhere they are not going to be waiting for you. You may be a slow heavy, but just because you pushed down one flank doesn't mean you have to keep going that way. You can always turn around and come at them from a different approach.

take out or locate spotters, without them TD's are blind, use a different approach, going the path everybody knows will have everybody already pointed in your direction and firing the moment you are spotted, coming from a different direction might take longer but will give you an advantage to a certain degree as people need to turn around with gun bloom as result so they won't be able to fire right away giving you moments to get into cover given that you have some support from your team to take advantage from your spotting

I quite like having Optics on my Heavies.

Combined with Recon, Situational Awareness, Vents and BIA, these will often give you enough view range to prevent your being destroyed by Captain Invisible TD, and if you move about a bit he will probably temporarily lose his Camo Net and Binos

E.g. my KV220 is blind but the above give it +73 view to reach 381 view range, which is okay for a Tier V Heavy, and it actually has some Scout and Patrol Duty awards

A lot of Highway matches end up as a draw because only the campers are left

 

Bear that in mind

Before deciding on where to push you first need to figure out what tanks are left on the enemy and where or if they have been spotted or not.

 

On Highway ( in my opinion ) you need to have base pressure from the other flank before pushing from the City, so that at least one or more of the remaining campers has to relocate, Pushing from the city you will almost always get lit and killed.

Your med and lights should spot.

On highway they should have not gone to city and win the other side of the map.

But nowadays 50%of the meds and lights think they are the paper tds class or a super heavy

As long as WG insists on implementing very strong TD locations just next to base which cover a big open field, nothing can be done.

When you win the city, go back to your base and then via the field. Pushing into the open without any light spotters etc. is suicide.

Ask for your clickers to help, as they prevent camping.

Put camo net and binos on your heavy tank then sit in bush and beat TD and TD game.
