I the Ru 251, a tier 9 in of Tanks (WoT), with a of a tier 10 battle. I also discuss the new map in detail and how to play the various lanes.

The Ru 251 is a highly-mobile scout with a good-handling gun.

Strengths and Weaknesses
+ Excellent top speed (70)
+ Excellent view range (410)
+ Excellent aim time (2 sec base)
+ Excellent HE penetration (102)
+ Small profile
+ Good accuracy (0.36 base)
+ Good HP (1400)
+ Gun depression of -10 degrees on the sides
Ó Paper armor, highly vulnerable to HE
– Poor gun depression frontally (-5.8)
– Combo of alpha (240) and DPM are underwhelming

Recommended Equipment
1. Optics
2. VStab
3. Rammer

Errata
a. This is Episode #65 not #85

I talk through how I’m reading the battle as unfolds and discuss key decisions and mistakes. My hope is that these videos meaningfully help players improve their .

  1. Because I know many of you don’t read the video description…here it is:

    I review the Ru 251, a tier 9 German light tank in World of Tanks (WoT), with a replay of a tier 10 Province battle. I also discuss the new Province map in detail and how to play the various lanes.

    360P ?

  3. I share that same mindset with the auto fire kits. At the rate they get used, it doesn’t come out to much more than 3k credits per game to use auto fire kits. Everything tier 5 and up gets auto kits because 3k/game expense is nothing.

    I learned some sneaky spotty spots from this, Taugrim, :3

    Now if I could only put them to use effectively, but Potato Tsavo might kill that 😀

  4. You’re no longer in WORLD? ;o

  5. This is my favorite tank

  6. Another very concise and thorough video. Thank you for the advice, currently at sp1c in that line.

  7. I loved ru when it was tier 8, rarely play it now.
    tnx for another good video.

    • It’s funny, I have the exact opposite experience.

      I used to dislike the Ru 251. But I’ve been playing it a lot as I grind out the 298k XP (OMG that’s so much…) and have grown to appreciate it more, or at least play it less badly 🙂

  8. Super high quality content as always, I’m glad to be one of your patreon supporter and I hope more will join us in supporting you 🙂

  9. Remember this map is Not new. It was a low tier one that was removed a few years ago. Of course it has the 1.0 VU also.

    • The old Province was severely flawed, especially for high-tier battles. The version in 1.0 is much better, although as I said in the video some people don’t like it.

  10. the most common thing in WOT the superunicum in that superconq shoots gold…

    • The vast majority of players fire some amount of gold.

      FWIW, I’ve fired 100% silver ammo only in Random Battles, and I’m very close to account Super Unicum – as of today I’m at 2873 WN8, so only 27 points to go 🙂

    • Taugrim i dont think especially he needs Gold. The gun is good enough for what he oppose, so he needs the extra bonus or he just didnt care…

    • Martin screw those fake superinicum gold spammer morons, no respect. Only unicum I’ve seen so far is Taugrim, why? He uses only silver

    • Yeah, I’ve noticed a lot of unicums seem to fire gold rounds in situations where they really don’t have any need to do so. It’s very frustrating when a tier 10 unicum thinks he needs to fire gold rounds at my tier 8 heavy. Sure I’m no Taugrim, so I do use gold rounds, but I at least try to be conservative and only use them when standard rounds just aren’t going to do the job even when aiming at weak spots.

  11. I unlocked my HWK12 a while ago but I never purchased it. I am trying out the Italian line and the soviet TD line right now but I think I will go ahead and get the HWK. Even if it is not good the RU251 looks like a good one. Does it still have that awesome HE or did they nerf that?

  12. i like the HWK more and switched back my crew, grindung the leo first. Maybe later again.

  13. It’s well worth the wait between your video’s. Another great offering with loads of hints and tips, cheers.

    • I have great footage for the Sheridan and AMX 50 100, and for the Strv 103B. I plan to work on another video this weekend.

  14. Taugrim my bro, you play WoT like chess. To be honest, watching your videos really makes me wanna implement your style of play and approach to my game as well. Kudos to you man!

  15. OMG THANK YOU FOR A RU GUIDE!

  16. I agree about this map. I’ve always loved playing Province.

  17. Looks like the Ferdi was running two repair kits?

    • I only tracked him once.

      My 1st shot was aimed on-the-run at his front drivewheel and while I dealt damage I think I missed the drivewheel.

  18. Can anyone tell me from what site he got the stats that are shown in the vegining of the vid?

  19. 9:35 “so you can concentrate on driving so you don’t run into a rock like I just did.” Love the humility and your commentary…great video as always.

  20. What I love is driving into a rock behind a bush, then getting your tank flipped on its side.

  21. I’d rather see the T100LT than the Sheridan if you want input. Another fantastic vid, I learn a lot from you. Thanks man.

  22. All your videos are awesomeballs.

    Fact.

  23. Nice game

  24. 0:13 Urgh, why does this map exist?

  25. Please amx 30b after they nerf it and centerian 7/1

  26. Great vid as usual!! Very precise and informative! I still hate this map 😉

  27. Nice to see you back with another great video.  Your tactical thinking is good to listen to and hopefully emulate.

  28. Great video man, I really appreciate the quality strategy talk and explanations.

  29. R. Giada Melchiorre

    Really love your vids that are a great help for me in game play and I learn so much about not only style, positioning but the maps too. Your vid teaches me, I find you and one other really great to watch. Thanks!

  30. R. Giada Melchiorre

    Oh the 50/100 I have that tank. 😁

  31. New Zealand, Kiwi fan. Fact. NZ beat the Nazis and japs for everyone. Your welcome 🙂 That’s why we make the best tank players, apart from the Russians with Vodka and drugs. And awesome Russian woman.
    Taugrim’s vlogs are well thought out, and even if the tank showcased is not your thing , the strategy is a must.

  32. I saw every single road to unicum for light tanks but I’m still not able to do this LT 15 mission with à T71 CMCD… HELP ME !

  33. Can you do a vidéo on how to play light tanks on Carelia please ?

  34. Another simple and enjoyable vid. I’ve played a lot less since 1.0 (despite spending a tonne of money to upgrade the computer for it) but wanting to play more now I have some more free time. Would you be interested in doing some map tactic videos per tank class? I know that situations change per match but 2-3 ideas per tank type per map would be hugely useful. although I recognise that’d be a lot of work, I know I’d certainly appreciate it

  35. How about reviewing the WZ 120?
    I’m currently at tier 7 (wz 131), so if it’s not worth it, I’m just gonna go for the light tanks.
