    About the game:
    World of Tanks is a team-based massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored warfare. Throw yourself into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world. Your arsenal includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, China, France and the Soviet Union, carefully detailed with historical accuracy glorious Russian bias!

    A flexible system of authentic vehicle upgrade and development allows you to try any of the vehicles and weapons in the game. Whether you prefer to exhaust your foes with fast and maneuverable light tanks, make deep breaches in enemy lines with all-purpose medium tanks, use the force of giant tanks to eliminate opposing armored forces with heavy tanks, or become a heavy sniper with long-range howitzers (artillery), each type of tank has its own advantages and can be extremely effective when operated by a true tank ace.

    But being a great tank commander alone isn't enough to win! In the World of Tanks, its all about teamwork. Victory is achieved by combining your combat skills with those of the other members of your team, each playing their own role on the battlefield (See thread title). Just add your favorite strategy to build your own iron empire and manifest the indisputable authority of the tank power!

    If you are not in the list or only got the game name on the list, PM me and I will add you.
    Only tell me your IN-GAME name, not Facepunch name.


    Q: So if I understand your previous answer correctly, there is no bonus for damaging a higher-tier opponent.

    However, many players (judging by the forums) have always been convinced that this bonus exists. Moreover, this belief was supported by several developer statements, including very recently in the thread concerning changes to the battle levels of the Type 59.

    I would like to be completely certain that I understood you correctly - the view that damaging an enemy tank that is of a higher tier than yours results in more credits is incorrect. Thank you.

    A: For a while, we ourselves were convinced that the bonus exists.

    Turns out, during the balancing of the in-game economy, the bonus was removed. It just slipped our minds.

    So damaging a higher-tier tank does not earn more credits.

    Please don't even scare me with that.

    Seriously if they pull that thing off I will just play the stock IS-8 and get the gun on it before playing IS-4 a single time.

    Better tier 9 with tier 8's gun than tier 10 with tier 7s gun.

    Uh oh. Hellcat has a 52.32% global win ratio. That's 1% higher than the SU-100 and 4% higher than the failpanzer.

    Beat my old record of 11 kills with the KV, got 12 with a shitty T26 lol.



    Should have been 14 too, the two tanks I damaged got nicked by some crappy T26 that fired only after i completely raped them to 10% hp twice.

    Better tier 9 with tier 8's gun than tier 10 with tier 7s gun.
    From what I read, you get the IS-4 with the new gun if you have him in your garage.

    Case 2. IS-4 is in the garage at substitution. All the rules as mentioned in Case 1 apply along with the following ones:
    Players get the IS-4 of tier 10 with available and mounted 122mm M-62-T2 gun without additional modules or consumables

    If you're fast enough and have good enough front armor (IS-3, 7, T110) you can tank a hit or two to scuffle up the enemy team's hill before everyone gets set up and then do the corner trick to eliminate everyone on the hill, winning the game for your team

    God forbid if you dont have decent front armor and speed like every other tank tho

    Just led my team to Komarin cap rush in my KV-5. We won at like 2 minute mark losing only 2 tanks while enemy lost 3.

    You need the tank in the garage and mount the turret just to be sure. You certainly don't need the guns.

    Komarin is still the worst map, Campania on lower tiers has been actually enjoyable because there's rarely arty and almost no one has enough viewrange to just fire across the valley. Then again when I say lower tier I mean Tetrach.
