Top 5 Silly Mistakes Players Make in World of Tanks

These are the silly mistakes you’re making every game – stop it.

No Teamwork

Contrary to popular belief, World of Tanks is not a 1v15 game. One of the silliest mistakes a tanker can make is to avoid teamwork like the plague. A bad tanker will work alone when working together is better. This doesn’t mean you should always be next to an ally, it means you should keep the lines of communication open.

A tank by itself can still be working with its team. SPGs and Tank Destroyers can rely heavily on active scouts to spot enemies or call out enemy locations not displayed on the mini map, despite being completely isolated.

Teamwork also means communicating with your allies about your intentions, whether it’s rushing a point, securing a line, or just helping to gang up on an enemy vehicle. People like friendly people, and good teamwork is inherently friendly. Remember, the tanks that spawn near you are people too, and they are looking for the best possible outcome.

Everyone makes mistakes – whether they are mistakes in real life or mistakes in a game. The important thing is knowing when you’re making these silly mistakes and how to fix them. Each battle in World of Tanks, try to analyze your own playstyle and pick out any little mistakes you might be making. It’s okay to make mistakes, it’s part of being human.
