Much like any game, there are mistakes players make all the time in World of Tanks. These mistakes are simple to make and easy to fix. However, by making these mistakes, you’re not only hindering the success of your team, you’re actively not getting better at World of Tanks.
It’s time to own up, raise your hand, and admit if you make any of these silly mistakes. We’ll be the first to admit that we definitely make these mistakes on a regular basis - it's time we improved.
Ignoring the Mini Map
Let’s get this silly mistake out of the way immediately. Nothing prevents you from winning more than ignoring the mini map – you might as well hit the V-key and turn off your HUD. Knowing how to use the mini map will help you claim victory.
In fact, the mini map is more than that. Utilizing the mini map will help you know when to flank, which in turn leads to more kills. The more kills you get, the more experience and credits you earn. The more credits you earn, the better tanks you can unlock. So really, by making the mistake of ignoring the mini map you’re only hurting yourself.
