Excellent Material, Thanks!  

 

While this is great material I think there needs to be a thread on operating a successful Clan/Platoon.  One of my pet peeves is platoons who are not in game chat and not utilizing other useful members of green team.  I have been part of platoons where the platoon leader thinks everyone should lemming train to the same spot on a map.  Many platoons have a platoon "leader" who tries to dictate where everyone goes and then is abusive when that one close minded strategy goes awry.  These are my frustrations. 

 

Game chat is toxic and distracting for platoons and will only slow you down or get you killed/trolled.

 

Most platoon leaders are incompetent teenagers that can't think more than 5 seconds in front of them, let alone call the shots for a platoon or 15 man team.

 

You wanna see a real platoon of tactical tankers with a competent strategic leader?

Come platoon with my team you will enjoy it I'm sure ;)

Yeeeeeah, have you ever taught a space alien about maneuver warfare, thats what its almost like dealing with youngsters now days.  Knowledge is power but a book wont give you that warm fuzzy telling to to bound from cover and attack, hold, or give supporting fire not hiding from defolade hoping that your team mate kills them or wears them down.  And some are just naturally lost or dont care an in a real world situation their just another casualty statistic.
YATYAS!  You aint tracks, you aint s#$t!

Today, I'd like to point the importance of communications while platooning.

 

Even with a restricted pool of players you use to play with, don't expect anybody to guess anyone's intentions.

 

Abuse vocal comms in a party chat for game chat can be toxic to platoon work.

 

Complete with radial commands.

 

Try to remain calm, clear and sharp when talking.

 

Use square minimap, no need to shift to bigger one to give grid coordinates.

LOL ... Funny.

>40,000 battles ... Do you not play anything else on your console!!


Compare tanks, packages, armor, and weak spots with actual console data: http://www.worldoftanksgameguide.com
