Dear Newbies,

 

When you start playing blitz there is one simple tip that will save you from upsetting team mates - leave space.

 

For example, if a medium is approaching a corner, do not follow close behind. he/she might need to reverse. If you are desperate to shoot, go on one side, leave a space behind medium.

 

Similarly, heavies will poke out, shoot, then reverse. Do not park behind them.

 

And never knock into a Tank Destroyer. TDs need to stay still to use camouflage. Running into them resets the camo.

 

On that topic - NEVER push a TD out of a sniping position because you think it is a good spot for youself.

 

So, in summary, just give your team space. Sometimes there will be tight spots in brawls, bur do you best to never block or push a team member into harms way. You will avoid a lot of anger this way and win more games.

There should be advanced tutorials and tips in the game to tell them that... not even a tenth of all blitzers don't look at the forum.

incredibly this happened to me today at Falls Creek. It was a tight 3 v 3 match. We had 3 tanks including myself but the remaining 2 in our team were the campers/miss all shots types.

 

I was in Hetzer lining up a shot and the t-28 knocked me off my camo.  I killed a Covenanter with no camo left but a BT-7 Art then proceeded to circle me, firing twice (more than 20second reload time since 2 shots) while the T-28 failed to fire a single shot at the BT-7 that was circling me.  

 

I got high calibre but our team lost because the last 2 in our team was that T-28 and another camper. Checked the stats of T-28, 657 battles, 42% WR. sigh.

Another tip to consider: Never crowd your mate and step in front of him just as he is about to take a shot. Seen this multiple times as well and just as annoying especially against OHK enemies. Had one today where a Pz IV with derp stepped in front of me just as I pressed the Fire button against a low health T-28. Not only did he absorb my shot, but he managed to miss his shot. I swear it made me miss the days where FF was on and having that Pz IV learn the hard way.

Lol, yeah the shot blockers are really annoying foo.

Worst when you are in a slow loading heavy hitter (kv2).

Though, if I am on 5 kills or more and have done the heavy lifting I will drive a line to the last tanks that blocks shots. Only if it is justified by team mates who have done nothing all game who might then steal kills.

Flip side is that I will track a tank for someone on 5 kills, or block a fast ranks escape. If a teammate has earnt it, they deserve the kill and it is no skin of my nose. Plus you earn points from damage done to a tank you have tracked.
