Is there a particular playstyle that any of you find works particularly well?  For me, I would say it is the "how not to be seen" TD style and the "very active and living dangerously" scout/medium style.  I like to either be not seen at all when I am firing at someone, or to be as big a distraction for the red team as I can by playing "I'm in your house and touching all your things, red team!"  However, I know lots of people have good results with :"Is that the best you GOT??" angling and bouncing or "Why yes! I CAN hit you on the run with a large howitzer.....Thanks for asking!"

 

What kind of play do you favor, folks?

Scout: Sneaky and cheeky and try to survive long enough to be on the cleanup crew.

TD: depends. High concealment with low armor= Kemp Bush. Low concealment with high armor= Second line support shooting over the shoulders of my Heavies.

Mediums: As hard and aggressive as possible. Rush to the flanks and ridgelines trying to throatpunch the Lights and then transition to harassing the Heavies and unmasking the hidden TDs.

Heavies: All up in your face. I want to be right up front brawling.

Agressive but with cover nearby. Always have an exit strategy. Focus on doing dmg and preserving hitpoints.

I like the one where  I get blowed up 43% of the time :arta:

Rusher. A good vantage point is everything. 

 

Then I die, because the team has no map awareness and would rather choke fighting two tanks when they outnumber them six to two, and I will add that flanks somehow, do not mean anything for a lot of people.

AFK suits me best.

Active scouting lights and flanking mediums. Tanks good at that give me a 55-65% win rate.

 

Heavy tanks and standard mediums or slow lights are abysmal for me.

I prefer tanks with good gun depression so I can hill fight, it’s hard to damage me when my entire tank is in cover behind a hill lol

The most common are to play defense when you should be attacking, and when defending a base you need to be far enough away that you can't reset it.

But stay alive so you can spam buttons.

Well written. Carbon copy of my playstyle basically.  At times i may round a corner with a heavy just to break a choke point. I get destroyed but allows team to advance

One where I am not facing a platoon of Absolutions or PZ V/IV. Way to balance WG. I get sick of seeing Absolutions totally wreck at tier 6. Another fine example of “balance”.

Stug Life has chosen me. Mobile cockroaches with high camo, f.e. the Stug IIIs, Stug IV, Flatpanzer, E 25, AMX Cda

The lower the camo and mobility, the more I suck, f.e. JT88, Ferdinand and what not.

If you don’t have a hidden, and you like stugs, you should pick one up next time it’s offered. The camo is incredible, it’s a pretty fun little tank to play. It also has PMM, so even though it only has the 75mm L/48, it doesn’t really feel outgunned

For me, the YOLO playstyle seem to be only one that gives constant results.  :trollface:
