The IS-3 Defender tank and missions
  • IS-3 Defender - looks sexy
  • Mobility and a strong turret
  • 3 shot auto loader with 7.5 seconds between shots and a 25 second clip reload
  • The Defender rocks and Lokeen loves it
  • Defender is an excellent credit grinder
  • 60,000 IS-3 Defenders available globally - down to 51k now and will start going quickly
  • Heavy penalties coming for serial AFK players
  • Shout out to Gavidoc!
  • Match making may revert to 4% tier imbalance when we drop back to +2/-2
  • Mini-Maus is back!

48 - Enter The Dragon with Unitater
48 - Enter the Dragon with special guest Unitater
 
  • Introducing Unitater
  • Want some coaching from a unicum? Start with Adopt-a-Reaper! http://forum.wotblitz.com/index.php?/topic/29145-adopt-a-reaper
  • Chinese medium line may be coming in patch 2.7
  • The Type 62 Chinese light tank - the Dragon! http://static-wbp-eu.gcdn.co/dcont/1.15.0/fb/image/tmb/dragon_tank_1_1200x.jpg
  • Light tanks and camouflage - light tanks do not lose their camo rating while moving but the trade off is no armor!
  • Big guns with HE like the KV-2 are the bane of the light tank driver
  • The "you have been spotted" light means RUN AWAY!
  • Type 62 Dragon - fast with a great gun and 7 degrees of gun depression
  • The Dragon earns decent credits but there are better credit grinders
  • Light tanks require very good situational awareness - pay attention to that mini-map!
  • If you try to brawl in a light tank you will lose
  • Beware that firing will hurt your camo and get you spotted - use bushes properly to stay hidden
  • Sit very close to a bush so it's translucent so you can spot. BACK UP 10m so it is opaque to fire to preserve your camo rating
  • We doubted that light tanks could be effective before the Dragon - but surprisingly they can be very effective
  • Light tanks are not a good class for newer players
  • Equipment for a light tank: Tank Gun Rammer, Coated Optics, Ventilation
  • Consumables for a light tank: Multi-Kit, Food, Adrenaline
  • Ammunition loadout for the Dragon: 23 AP 22 HEAT 2 HE
  • The -1/+1 match making experiment really helps the Dragon - it does NOT have preferential match making
  • AP and APCR can shoot through light cover including cars, but HEAT gets stopped
  • Lephturn fails at the Dragon - but Unitater and Lokeen can fix him
  • How to improve your Star1 rating - focus on tanks tiers 5-10 and you need 10x the tier # of games for it to count
  • Lokeen fell back in love with the Panther! The key is staying at long range for the German mediums
  • Outtakes
