Basics of light tank combat - [COMPLETED]

Post  PointyHairedJedi on Tue Sep 03, 2013 9:31 am



Light tank combat, theory & practical - Thursday 5th September, 19:00 UTC (forum clock time)

This is primarily looking at counter-scouting, but is meant to also cover what you should be doing in a light tank versus other light tanks.  We'll be using TS3 for comms.

You'll need to sign up here, and anyone that does want to take part in the practical parts, a suitable light tank (at least a tier 4 scout) will be needed.

EDIT:  I realise Behemoth is doing something on that date too, apologies for anyone who really really wanted to do both, but there's no other evening I can do it this week.

What would better suit? I could have it an hour earlier if that would better for people.

I would really like to take part as i am pretty crappy with lights and really want to learn how to play them (i have some tier 3 and then next best things i have for scouting are the T49 and Hellcat!!) . I don't have a t4 light but have 6.4k free exp i can spend and can reach the Luchs with top engine but not top tracks (as i have the 1C before it), unless you have abetter suggestion?

The Luchs is really not bad for a tier 4, it's probably better than the T-50 now to be honest (after the nerfs that received). More of a passive scout, but it can still move ok.

Sign me up.

At present my light tank driving works according to the following program :

IF Scout THEN
 WAIT RND(60-120 seconds) THEN DriveInCircles UNTIL Shot
END ELSE
 HideInBush UNTIL CantResistPullingTrigger THEN Die
END

So any help gratefully accepted.
