I demonstrate how to troll big, tall, and slow turreted tanks in a Russian medium in World Tanks (WoT), with footage of my T-62A facing E-100's.

This works not only in the T62A but also tanks with a low profile and solid turret, such as the Object and T-54.

The key thing is to time your approach based on either when your target just fired or is facing the other direction, and to use the target as a shield to protect you from other enemy tanks while you whittle the target away.


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

  1. +Peoman best troll song is best

  2. +blademansw eh, I’m not so great with it either LOL.

    I eeked out a Unicum WN8 with it barely (2458), but I found that it was not
    a tank that I could carry in with any consistency. It’s not fast enough,
    and the armor is not strong enough. You need one or the other, preferably

    Anyway, I’ll talk about it in the next video.

    +Taugrim I think most people on YouTube enjoy it, that’s why channels like
    PewDiePie are so big. (just don’t end up like him XD)

    Even though this is a funny video it still has the quality and standard
    I’ve come to love from your other videos. I’d say keep it up if you like to
    make them 🙂

  4. +037kondo thanks!

    +Smackedown Yeah, it’s funny how mad they get because they’re outplayed 😛

  6. +I tum yes, it works with the T-54. If you spam gold it will take longer
    due to bounces, but eventually silver shells do pen.

  7. +Brad Cooper I only recently found the Trololo music video. Seems like I’ve
    been missing out.

  8. +Vacras agreed re: bouncing.

    I was surprised to see in TankInspector that around the skirt, at a
    penetration angle of zero, the armor is around 200 on the side skirt of the

    > this is why i now will choose the is4 over the e100 or maus

    Well to be honest, the average medium tank driver would not troll you like
    this. It’s somewhat counter-intuitive to close the distance to a brawler
    tank with a bigger gun.

    i actually abuse this technique all the time in lower profile tanks like
    the chinese lights or mediums or the russian higher tier meds its really
    effective with a strong trollish turret or just hby having a low profile or
    very fast accelerating tank like it works surprisingly well in the lttb as
    a n example providing your on level ground. i actually do this in the
    cromwell and the t34 85 a lot too now that i think of it.

    It can be entertaining to have conversations with players on both sides.

    And when people swear at me, I know what they’re saying 🙂

    > as always a great video 🙂

    > I recently discovered that in my leopard, but it’s so much easier to do
    in the Chinese mediums

    Ya, you can do this in any smaller tank, but with ones with a smaller
    turret you have to dance a bit more or your turret will get pen’d.

  13. Does it work with stb?:)

  14. +El_Maginio It could, but as is the case with also the Leopard you have to
    be a bit more careful. The STB-1 has a bit of turret armour, but you could
    still get penetrated easier than in the Russian/Chinese ones (with the
    round turrets basically).

  15. +El_Maginio Not as reliable turret armor as T-62A but it could work.
