Hey all,

I thought I would post this because I have seen too many people incorrectly using their tanks or the game mechanics. I am also hoping that the WG admins pin this thread so that it doesn't get lost in the archives. I will continue updating this so if anyone thinks of someone that I have not then please post them on here and I will take a look and add them to this post

 

Of course you can also check out the WoT wiki here: http://wiki.worldoftanks.com/Main_Page

or if you have an android tablet then you should look into an app called WoT Knowledge Base as a reference for maps and tanks:

https://play.google....ro.wot.knowlege

 

First of all I suggest watching the WoT Xbox tutorial videos that can either be found in the tutorial section of the garage or on the WoT 360 Youtube channel they don't give you all the facts and leave much to be desired but they can still give you a breif overview of the game mechanics and how to use a general tank class. The PC WoT channel is also good but they mostly post videos about their team battle mode (called the Science of Victory) and other good series like RNG: No Comments, Best replays of the week, and 8-bit tales

 

WoT 360 Channel: https://www.youtube....4-JTnhtG8swnwoQ

Wot Mechanics Playlist link: https://www.youtube....jy3K6Ugg1nUCNrP

 

WoT Tank academy playlist link: https://www.youtube....1QYxvuugusToqkk

 

WoT Team battles and Strategy channel (new "Science of Victory" home channel):

https://www.youtube....9shPHwSF3Uft4VA

 

Secondly try watching other PC youtubers for now as I can't any xbox youtubers that post good videos regularly.

 

The Mighty Jingles (BohemianEagle on Youtube) is pretty good. He does some great, in depth and (be warned) long Tank review videos as well as a good series called "the good the bad and the ugly". He also has two videos about the Camo Mechanics of the game that a really in depth and quite amusing to watch called "How not to suck". If you are looking for the tank reviews look under his playlists they are split into playlists by nation. WARNING: He can swear like a Sailor at times because he is Ex-Royal Navy.

Capt Canada also does a few good videos but he is yet again fixed on becoming a pro so he will throw out word and phrases that mean nothing to a lot of you

 

Capt Canada channel: https://www.youtube....6jMVlGmNK0-1JkQ

 

Maxwell does some pretty good videos and does subscriber replays, and sometimes he will post the odd Xbox video as well. He also does a series called "World of tanks Dream Team" where 15 youtubers get into a platoon and play Team battles and do some great and funny games once a month. The Dream Team series is a great way to get introduced to other great WoT youtubers.

 

Maxwell's Channel: https://www.youtube....xSRGames/videos

 

Nether Vvoid does some tank reviews but hasn't done any recently, however he has found an ingenious way of finding the tank review that you are looking for with videos of Tank trees with annotations of the tanks he has done reviews on just click the annotation and it will take you to the review. I will post the link to his playlist of those vids.

 

Nether Vvoid Tank review playlist: https://www.youtube....D318CE9421F6FE1

 

There are many others like Quickybaby, Sir Foch, and Circonflexes. but they are mostly just videos of them play and nothing really educational. ProersHD is the only good quality Xbox only youtubers that I have found so far but he doesn't do videos regularly.

Edit: Forgot to another Xbox 360 youtuber that I have had in my sub box for along time. He is LILMikeeh and he is reviewing most of the mediums and has videos detailing each and every Crew perk and skill.

Also check out the many live streamers on twitch: http://forum-console...n-live-streams/

If there are any that I may have missed please feel free to post others and I will check them out and update this OP.

 

Oh and if you are getting shot at, please at least point your front armor at me if you won't angle it to about 30-40 degrees. I feel guilty and awful taking advantage of those nice juicy sides and rears. :playing:

Same here. I usually watch an entire line of tanks before I commit to it and then I rewatch the tanks that I am about to get as I progress down the line to make sure I am ready to go out of the gate. Before the Soviets came out I was watching the reviews for all of the tanks that we were getting and I decided that I wanted to work down all 3 lines that we now have.

And now that the American autoloader and German Waffentrager lines are coming out next month I am watching those videos now and I am liking what I see!!!

It should be noted that, by his own admission, Jingles is an above average player at best who livestreams with some greats like Quickybaby, Circon, and Sir Foch among others. Though if you are an absolute noob then he's good for beginners tips, especially the new "how not to suck" series he's started.

In all honesty, his skills are above average. His ability to read the map and the fact he inherently knows almost every tanks strengths and weaknesses on the battlefield is what makes him one of the better players I've watched.

 

He understands WoT inside and out. And he has a way of conveying that knowledge to his viewers much better than any other streamer/youtube uploader.

 

Also this video:

Is a must watch for sidescraping and how to angle your turret so people don't punch through the flat front spots on some tanks turrets.

That is true. I have been playing since the closed beta and the first thing I did was do the tutorial and watch all of the videos and even I learned something from it.

And that's all I ever did for this game third party stuff isn't needed espically with this tutorial system it's simple, but people need to get smart by experence

Way to dish out helpful info SkyStalker, when I got the BETA last Summer I went right onto YouTube and Never looked back, The Mighty Jingles AkA The BohemianEagle is a World Of Tanks Oracle for everyone. I still just do not understand why some people don't Angle their Tanks, I Angle EVERYTHING but before I buy a Vehicle or start on a Tank Path I watch his Reviews but Captain Canada is also Very Underrated. In Game Experience is the BEST but it pays to Research a Tank before you buy it.

 

A Good 15 Minutes comparing Tank Stat's then Single Modules that we can't access cause we have Packages, followed by a Review of Equipment and what Crew Member's should be using & wraps with 2 Games to Showcase the Tank. The Guy HELPED me Raise my Game but I was just glad I found him early since I hadn't been on Youtube for a bit until I started playing WoT.
