    3601's armor still works better than Tiger's. That's kinda really fucking stupid.

    I often get critical hits with my TrollKV when I hit targets, what are some of the likely culprits? Crew members, view devices etc, often against the frontal armour?

    Depending on the tank, gun, tracks, viewfinder, gunner, driver, turret ring, commander. If it's german, also the engine.

    Shot a T29 bang on his front. Took out his gun, loader, ammorack and gunner. Boy was there bitching when he repaired his gun only to get it shot off again

    I hate the fuckers with a passion. When my team is about to win a match and there are artillery still alive, I beg them to hunt them down and kill them instead of capping.

    Edited:

    Erhm, tracks -> turret -> 100mm cannon as far as I remember. Only take the tracks if you can't mount the turret.

    Do I really need to research the tracks? I mean you only gain 0.3t in total weight load.

    That extra traverse speed helps.

    Arty splash damage is surprisingly effective. And for some reason my shots always land anywhere from the center dot to the half circle farthest from me, almost never the other half.

    Also, does hiding in bushes really help?

    German heavy tree isn't very newb friendly at all, it's one of those trees that need skill to play well.

    I recommend going up Russian heavies or German TDs as your first tree.

    If you know how to angle then it's a good idea.
    Germans are good snipers so try to stay in the back.

    When you say angling armour, I assume you mean turning the tank so that the shell hits the hull at a shallow angle? Like light bouncing in a fibre optic wire?

    In some tanks, angling can be a bad thing too due to tank model (ex: IS-3, IS-4)

    I think you mean IS-7. The IS-4's front is flat, so angling helps a crapload and you can trust the black hole tracks to protect the exposed side of that thing.

    Well IS-7 too.

    When you angle the IS-4, one of these plates



    will loose its angle, they aren't as thick as the frontal plate.

    I find it's actually better to turn those plates towards the enemy, it angles the MASSIVE frontal weak spot there, and that armor there is pretty damn thick. The only downside is that the ammoracks are behind those plates for some stupid reason, so if something manages to pen it, it may kill you. I've only had it happen once out of a hundred matches though, so I'm not concerned.
