Oh, I would like to make one remark on the additional grousers, in that through my experiments with it, only the Pz 3/4 seems to gain a significant effect in regards to terrain resistance, and by significant, I mean a 5 kph speed limit improvement on soft terrain, and a 2 kph improvement on moderate terrain. Otherwise, it has little effect as stated.

Thanks for confirming this XxDAFFYxxDUCKxX. Been meaning to test this in Proving Grounds for myself, but keep finding other fun things to do... I had a feeling the % loss in terrain resistance would prove to give a smaller percent gain in actual speed. I like to verify PC information before claiming it as gospel, but Grousers is such an obscure piece of equipment that no one had requested verification as of yet...

As for the Open Top vs Vents. It's a built in bonus. I stumbled on the information in an post on WOT Labs. I'll try to find it and reference it. I have performed hours of research on WOT, I should have taken better notes... ;)

 

The open top vs. vents things basically works out to all open topped vehicles having slightly better than expected for their weapon and tier reload and view ranges baked in to their turret stats.

 

(Sometimes the view range bonus is quite large, eg. the M2 Medium with the open top turret has a 370 view range at tier 3 where most tanks would be happy with 300).

 

The downside is that you are a bit of an arty magnet because the open top counts as 0 armour so they can roll huge on you.

Been playing for a few months but only just got involved with the forums. This guide is excellent and has explained so much to me. I had worked out a few of the basics but think i will give some of your set ups a try. Excellent guide looking forward to more.

Okay, thanks for the guide.  Now I have probably a dumb question.  Where do you get equipment?  Sometimes when I get blown up there is a message at the top left stating I should get the Binocular Telescope.  I have looked for it and cannot find where you get it (or any equipment, for that matter).  Do you need to train the crew with skills before the option for getting equipment shows up?  I have only played for a week and my crew has no skills yet; they are being trained at the moment (and it takes a long time for them to train in a premium tank).

You get equipment by highlighting a tank in your garage, pressing X or Square depending on platform, and choosing Equipment.

 

Most equipment becomes locked to the tank you buy it on unless you pay gold to remove it though.

Great guide! I used to play on the 360, but it's been about a year and a half or more. Now I play on the ps4, and this guide definitely helped respark my memory. Thanks!

Thanks GrassHopper! Closing in on 9000 battles, I still pull noobish moves on occasion... Glad to help. Better players mean better games.

Great Info, Good Job! :great:

 

Whenever I have an open Equipment slot in any tank I'm about to play, I add The Binocular Telescope.

Whenever I stop for a moment trying to line up a shot, The Binocular Telescope turns on and other targets pop up. Which adds to my assisted damage. This gives more damage and silver.

Stupid question, but how do I move Binos and Camo from tank to tank?

The only stupid question is the one you don't ask.

You can't move equipment per se, you will have to sell the equipment on the first tank and re-buy it on the second.

 

Note: There is a price increase on equipment when moving to certain tiers.

I've been playing WoT for almost 2yrs now. I am an average player and am always looking for info like this but usually when I find it it doesn't make sense.

Thank you for taking the time to research and putting forth the effort to make this easy to follow and understand.  I look forward to finding many more forum articles by you in the future.

Thanks for your time and effort putting this thing together.  I only wish I'd have visited the forums sooner as I've been playing WoT for going on 2 years now, (I'm a console monkey)  and this would have been handy to have when I was starting out. Have started changing some of my setups and can see a perceptible difference.

I've bookmarked and added to favorites so again thank you.
