- Hull Down
A tactic involving only showing your turret to enemy tanks by using the terrain. This tactic is excellent for tanks with good gun depression and strong turret armour
- Side Scraping
This tactic is commonly used with German Heavies, such as the Tiger I, Tiger II, and so on. This involves the tank commander angling his tank just 20-30 degrees or so, while facing the enemy or using a wall, so that all the shots to their side bounce off. If you attempt to side scrape in a Russian Heavy with a "pike nose" design, (IS-3,IS-8,IS-7) be sure to hide your frontal armour well behind the cover because the pre angled frontal plates of these tanks are ineffective if you expose them at the wrong angle.
Angling is when a tank is on one side of a 90 degree corner and the enemy is on the other. The one who is angling, puts out their front and turns it towards the enemy at a 110 degree angle. It is key not to show your side, because you will be penetrated then. In Russian Heavies with pre angled frontal plates, ("pike nosed") like the is-3 for example,angling will render this armour ineffective so it is recommended you face your opponent head on in tanks like this, and wiggle your front and turret to prevent them from aiming at weak spots easily.
Radial Dial Communication
Using your D-pad in-game, you can select a command/statement from the radial dial to inform/command players about your tank, their tank and of the strategy for the game. These are the current commands for the Radial dial.(There are two more radial dials, they will be added in the next couple days.)
- Attack! / Attacking target!
Used when a player wants to tell their team to attack or that the user of the command is attacking. When you have your sights over a spotted enemy, then you press attack, it says "Attacking [enemy tank commander (tank they have)] and the voice says: "Attacking Target!"
- Defend the Base!
Used when a player wants to let their team know they need to stop the enemy capturing the base.
- Fall Back
A command which can be used in game by a player to inform the person in question that they should retreat.
- Reloading!/Ready To Fire!
Used when a player wants to tell their team that they're reloading their gun or that their gun is loaded. Usually used by Tankers that have longer reload times.
Used when a player wants to tell their team that the user needs help. Usually used by Tankers in leading the attack or need help in the user's direction.
Used when a player agrees in their teams strategy. Usually used by Tankers after Capture the Base! or Attack commands and that user agrees that strategy. Also usually used by players after killing the last enemy and reigning victorious.
Used when a player disagrees in their teams strategy. Is used along with Affirmative! in the latter's commands.
