Yes, this mode is wacky. Most people feel your pain. The AI tanks have ridiculous accuracy, and your game will be over quickly without careful teamwork or an inept Commander opponent.


Instead of another complaint thread, I thought it might be useful to the community to concentrate on what WORKS. Please provide useful information here to help players earn the nice rewards via Tanker mode. I'll start:


Defend yourself. Don't drive out in open or expose weak sides. I have good success playing Tanker mode with the Scourge Kirovets heavy. This tank and other tanks with excellent armor up front can provide excellent utility to you and your team. Prioritize defense while the bots are locked on you and allow your team to attack their flank. Plan your escape ahead of time, if possible, in case the enemy Commander sends his bots to surround you. You're dead if he does surround youGG.


Don't Waste Attacking Opportunities. If your teammate is getting hammered by all the bots at once, you may be next. You better attack them while they're vulnerable and hopefully kill a few. Don't be too passive. Your cosy ridgeline probably isn't going to save you when you're the last tank alive versus 4-5 bots.

Good tip: Don't play as Commander, play as Tanker and farm bots. Use a Premium tank with either great DPM (Scorpion G) or armor (Mutant) or both (T28 Proto).


Better tip: Go and play multiplayer instead.

Same. I really want to like playing as a commander but it is so clunky and the boys are so irresponsive. Hats of to WG for the reward structure but unfortunately, it is only reachable as a tanker IMO. Kind of defeats the point of playing tank commander...
