WE INTERRUPT MENDOZA'S REGULARLY SCHEDULED [edited]POSTING TO BRING YOU THIS IMPORTANTE MESSAGE!

When you've finished clicking the enemy and you begin your eons long reload cycle, think to yourself "Where should I be when my reload is up?" Because if you can make that 30+ second reload work for you instead of just hiding until it's over (not that hiding doesn't have it's time and place of course) you will possibly gain or create a positional advantage that would not have been there otherwise. It's small things like this that can take your average mexican (like myself) and turn him into a clicking machine capable of tracking 6 tanks at once at precisely the right time for those dirty clickers the arty and dank destroyers to do their damn job.

And also, sometimes the answer to "Where should I be?" is right where you are. It's up to each individual to learn to assess the game situation and apply themselves accordingly. It wont always work, but eventually you'll learn the wheres and whens. It's taken me a long time to figure this out and I thought I'd share it with the community.  

This of course also applies to any tank with a significant reload cycle, except artillery the bane of WoT's existence.

Utilizing that fear factor is also a good choice. I prefer not to engage that close with the 50 100 though, if you get caught out you die near instantly.

"Like I said.... GET OUT. "
I consider myself quite average for a mexican, neither brown nor white but somewhere in between.

Since when is average incompetent? I don't consider myself incompetent, but like I said I do consider myself average.

Anything you want it to mean. Anything at all. 

If you choose to be offended on my behalf for how I describe myself then thank you very much.

Well you're just the average American who gets offended because of someones race. 

Nothing wrong with that though :harp:

While I agree with the OP that it's possible to accomplish certain maneuvers while you're reloading, you also have to consider what happens if you attempt said relocation and get tracked while you've got nothing to fire.  It can be a disaster.

There is always that risk of being caught with your pants down, I prefer to make my time work for me even if every once in a while it doesn't end well. Can't be afraid to take risks otherwise you end up like the glorious tier ten heavies who camp in the corners on komarin. 

And also, sometimes the answer to "Where should I be?" is right where you are. It's up to each individual to learn to assess the game situation and apply themselves accordingly. It wont always work, but eventually you'll learn the wheres and whens. It's taken me a long time to figure this out and I thought I'd share it with the community.

This is a good strategy, I guess I've been subconciously doing this -- trying to appear right where I need to be when I'm just about reloaded in the batchat.  If I may add, in the batchat, especially late game it helps to have space to get up a full head of steam before you rip around a corner, flank, or whatever on an attack run.  I try to time the point when I burst from cover with the time that I'm reloaded.
