All of us agree more or less that we need to get more flexible in our methods. We are very good at a defensive stance..its hard to beat us, except when the following occurs:
a. The team allows us to get sucked into focusing in on one area: Resulting in getting flanks and or jammed up..ultimately a heaping pile of tank death.
b. We get into the bad habit of peek a boo shooting....resulting in blocking other tankers shots or lanes and getting team killed at the same time.
c. We spend most of our time in sniper mode, and try and aim up that "perfect shot" each time we stick our big ass tank out into the firing lane. Resulting in: taking an unnecessary amount of damage, unable to have effective SA as to allowing the enemy to sneak up on your back side and boom goes your tank.
This can be rectified by practicing the following in both strongholds, platoons, and on your own.
For example: I rarely spend a lot of time Sniper mode....unless I am in a TD, Arty, or am doing long distance shooting. If I am in a close in fire fight, I am total external so I can see who or what is near by. Especially in a scout or autoloader i am always looking for an avenue of exit.
Now I am far from perfect..communicating to my teammates is my big failure especially when I recognize something I can rectify right away....Sorry orcs for those time where I left you hanging to fix something else. more to come
