How to Increase Your Damage, Wn8 Rating
Busy day posting on Wot Talk today, but I saw a video I really had to share.
Like many players I have trouble consistently doing high damage in games, and after seeing this video I realized I’ve been doing it all wrong. Or, at least, a lot of it wrong.
Part of the issue is I am obsessed with winning, and I often do things that don’t get much damage, but help the team win.
That’s not so bad, but the other issue is that because I’m trying to be a ‘team player’, I literally walk right on by opportunities to increase my damage, Wn8, credits and XP.
If you increase those, you’ll have a faster grind and incidentally probably win more games.
The video by Lemming Rush focuses hard on how to farm damage. Not how to win, but specifically hogging as much damage for yourself as possible. For me, it’s a bit of a revelation. When I played hockey I was the guy who dug the puck out of the corner and fed it to the star player with the good hands in front of the net.
I was the grunt, he was the star, and while I had a lot of assists, I was seldom a high scorer.
In this video, LemmingRush shows how to avoid following the herd, and by looking at the map, figuring out where to go very quickly to rack up more damage and XP.
Two things I learned are: I need to get better at heavies and use them more often, because I frankly suck with heavy tanks; and secondly, when you’ve cleared out the flank you are on, don’t head for their cap. Instead, head directly for the largest collection of enemy tanks you can see, because that’s where all the HP is.
Map awareness is really the key, but watch the video. It’s a great guide by one of the game’s best players.
