So I've been playing WoT since it came out on 360 and ive been playing on and off since and have been enjoying my time grinding and getting better at the game. I think I'm a pretty decent player but I want to get better. I know it's sort of a broad question but do any unicum players have any tips for me to become better and eventually a unicum?

When in doubt, fire a ton of premium.

Just keep playing and broaden the knowledge on a certain tanks strengths and weakness. Know how to deal with certain situation and don't panic when the pressure gets put onto you. But if you want the fast way do what every recent uniscum does and fire full prem and stat ped to hell. (Just say of which I don't just to make it clear)

The best you can do is watch replays from unicum players, learn positions at the begining of the match to make the first shots, and then learn to read the map and be able to know what will happen one or 2 minutes later to take the right position, and then improve your shot mechanics, if that doesnt work you can always spam gold :teethhappy:.

The channel i watch is the turkey tank, that is how i learned to take the lights.

I Play cause i like the Game. I dont look at my stats if im Good or Bad. I mostly look vids from yt circonflex, skill4ltu, Taugrim, Mouzakrobat, Orzanel...

This is an Option and some help. But u also have to try your own thing.   Mouzakrobat say unicorns dont Play to win. They Play for dmg.

I'm far from being one, but I think you need to get T-rex and play 4-5k matches. Success is guaranteed.

 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25, M7, T-50

Map awareness. 

Effective spending of hit points. 

Knowing when to reposition or retreat. 

All these certainly help my WN8. 

 

If if none of that works there’s always the T1E6 option:)

There’s a couple of good youtubers who are very good at putting you into the thought process of a uncum player. Dauntless tanker and Lemmingrush they’re PC players but you can use all the tips and tricks on the console. These two helped me improve massively.

lemming is excellent at explaining the nitty gritty of the game and why/how he try to make thing happen. 

Tru Voodoo is also a great resource who it good at explaining the though process behind a play. 

 

Skill4ktu often gives out some absolutely gold info and tips.

Poor guy broke up with his girlfriend (or fiancee) and made a video explaining the reasons why to his subs. :teethhappy:

That's how thorough he is.

Fire more shots on target per game.  It's much more complicated than it sounds, but that's the big difference between green or blue players and unicums:  the purples shoot a lot more.  Most players don't fire enough shots per game to put up purple damage even if every single shot penetrated.

 

Don't fall into the trap of trying to improve the quality of your shots (better aiming, learning weakspots, etc.)  for tiny improvements.  Instead improve the quantity of your shots (positioning, active play, surviving into late game.)

 

Premium ammo spam helps unicums a lot because they shoot a lot.  It won't help you very much if you aren't firing enough shots per game.

Use the best loadouts for tanks, know how to play maps, know how to penetrate tanks/angle your armor, abuse camo and view range mechanics, have good map awareness and know when to retreat and push. Avoid playing Artillery if you're going for higher WN8. If you're really good, don't use any fire extinguishers ever and use food on all of your tanks.  Put camo paint and equipment on all of your tanks that you are playing. Don't platoon very much.

An important part is good decision making and a good situational awareness, this is something you can learn but i don't think this is something anyone can teach .
