Hulldown specific maptours

Post  Brainfarter on Mon Jul 29, 2013 9:48 pm

I am reading up on the curriculum and notice the focus on hulldown (Tanks and Terrain).
Even though this is often mentioned i do not see much focus on finding / pointing out the good positions on the different maps.

Maybe a series on hulldown specific "good positions" could come in handy.
I have learned myself along the way but would love to receive (and give) tips&tricks and beneficial positions on the maps.

Just a thought

Once I've gotten my T29 and got used to it, I will a couple of lessons with hulldown types and spots.
Unless another instructor wants to beat me to the punch.

Love to help but hulldown for me is ok if it happens to be possible in a given situation to protect yourself but really shouldn't be the basis of how you use a certain type of tank, td's yes but heavy tanks meh!

Anyway, I'll do a lesson on how to go hulldown later this week but it won't be map specific, there are literally hundreds of place to get hulldown on any map.

I'm just speaking for my own classes now, other instructors classes might be different.

For hulldown classes I give few examples of where you can go hulldown. Hills, craters, piles of rubble, rocks, cars, wrecks, toonmates (double-gunning) and then let students find good spots for themselves.

In map tours I go over everything, including hulldown positions. I don't find it useful to go over just something specific, because to understand why it works you need to where arty is, enemies likely positions, scouting routes, etc.
