Rule number 1,always follow heavy and support him,if your going alone you better pray other mediums follow you.

Rule number two,don't camp and snipe unless you german Panther line.....especially them Russians with low acc trying to shoot from 500 meters away,that won't do anything.

Rule 3,don't,ever.....face any tank head on unless their one shot kills for you.

Rule 4,outrun or flank every tank unless you german,german special.

Tip 1,use speed to fake people your coming out to take a shot and once the enemy misses you shoot and pop back in your hole.

Tip 2 Pls don't ram......

Tip 3,this is useless XD


People don't change they only get old,

If I let you back in close,will you hurt me?

i have to disagree with rule 1 and 2
rule 1 u either tell them to follow you or watch them if they wiill. if they didn't dont go alone unless you outier the enemy meds (cos u likely meet meds at the start) that they will have a hard time penetrating you
rule 2 its better to camp or i must say ambush the enemy if pretty outnumbered or out tiered u dont wanna be rushing using a t44 and meeting a t62a
oh and rule 3 not all, i am using t 54 and i always face enemy tier 7-8 meds because they cant pen my front sometimes tier 9s they dont have the gun to pen

In a medium its essential to flank our out traverse heavy tanks, ive done huge sets of kills and damage on my T-43 by doing this however this requires good skills to ensure that you not get shoot.  Mediums should escort when necessary and should engage flanking mediums as they present as the largest threat to the spear head. Russian meds can snipe when necessary however that kind of action is at rare occasions. 

"Right or wrong, evil or good, but they still fight, without second thoughts they march up to the enemy, they dont hope to go home tommorow, their families are now their war brothers, every bullet they shoot, every lives they taken, every blood they spilt, did they give up? They'll never give up, for their flag they will fight, even if it means dying at cost, rather than die in vain, they'll fight for whats theirs, until the last blood drop, they are the soldiers of war" -war-

Your small size allows you to hide behind bushes, spot for your team. Dont move or shoot until last second.

Once your team is engaged (or not if they went somewhere else) back away and help from afar, beyond the enemy's vision range, or flank.

Spot for your tank destroyers. Lure tanks to the TDs line of fire. Know where your teammates are and what parts of the map they can see.

If someone is capping and everyone is too far, you are the only one fast enough to pop in, disrupt the capper, then run away.  Your job is not to kill the capper, just delay the cap. Use HE shells if possible, if ur AP shots bounce, the cap timer does not reset. HE resets it almost every time.

Avoid spamming "protect the base". That is your job.

Medium tanks like T-54s and T-62As are much to a strike medium kind of style. They both feafure heavy turret armor and in the T-54scase, good frontal armor. They both also features speed and low silhouettes that makes them hard to hit. Their job is to get closer to the enemy line or infiltrate the TD camp sites and take them out before anyone knows it. The pattons can do a huge set of playstyles however dangerously lacks armor all around which prevents it from doing strike capabilities. However it performs great as a scout, flanker or a sniper due to its very powerful gun. The E50 class are known for their tough armor but no so tough turret which is badly sloped making hull down limited. Its a very good sniper due to its accuracy and damage also penetration. It also has very good ramming capability which makes much rammings to do little damage. The E50 can also carry strike missions however its not effective due to its size and speed

Agree, the Russian mediums are more attacking and can be played more aggressively, The Pattons play more of a support role to other tanks, more ambush behind the lines, than brawling up front. Once the enemy is weak and scared, either the Pattons or the Russian tanks can run around and clean up the weak stragglers.

But if two tier IX flank - its all over - I'm gonna sit at home and flank while watching pron - and the best flanking shoes? Someone else's Nikes obviously

If you see Tricks and Dix in a plat, just adopt a BBIC playstyle, you can't win - leave your shoes next to your tank, we'll collect them after the game.

if it's a slow TD i.e. T95, there's virtually no need to circle it. Just stay on its rear and it'll drop

I learned the easy way (after there was no-one else left to stop me) that to kill a T95 its better to be a little bit away (like a meter or two) it and to aim shots directly into the side or its rear.

Trying to pen the top from up close causes an auto bounce that could be fatal if there are support tanks that can reach you before you manage to take its HP. And tracking then shooting can take a really long time if you're trying to get rid of an unarmed T95 and you get bouces.

Also most players should know not to shoot a T95s side skirts which is covered by 2 wide tracks which soak the damage very easily

"Right or wrong, evil or good, but they still fight, without second thoughts they march up to the enemy, they dont hope to go home tommorow, their families are now their war brothers, every bullet they shoot, every lives they taken, every blood they spilt, did they give up?
