War Thunder Wiki: Short Guides Competition

A well-trained ally doesn’t make obvious mistakes in battle. They are an asset, and instead, will aid you in your path to victory. How might one hope for a well-trained ally? Well, your ally’s best teacher could be you after you’ve participated in the short guides competition from the War Thunder Wiki team!


From the 7th of June until 23:59 GMT on the 30th of June

Explain to newcomers about well-known mechanics in the game using the format of short videos or briefings to win valuable awards and the unique in-game title “Educator”!

Share your work in this topic!

Prizes

10 best short guide authors

  • In-game title “Educator”

10 best short video creators

  • Choice of premium vehicles up to rank V (excluding vehicles from update 1.89 and any special event vehicles)

Useful guides, in either unchanged or improved forms, will take an honourable place on the pages of the official War Thunder Wiki, while referencing the nicknames of their respective authors/creators!

Task

Remember the learning-curve that you, yourself, experienced in War Thunder, and try to help newcomers overcome these by teaching them, step by step, or demonstrating by example.

Consider beginning with the basics, using simple actions, such as vehicle purchase, crew training, or even how a new player might register to play the game!

Short briefing

Write simple text instructions with one or two paragraphs.

Begin by describing the task and outlining a clear sequence of the actions required to complete it.

Place your briefing in this forum topic.

Short video

Record a video of up to 60 seconds, demonstrating the sequence of actions one needs to take, and accompanying them with comments that are useful to players.

Publish your video on YouTube for example, with the name “How to ___ in War Thunder” (where “___” is a clear description of the action) and post the link to the video on this forum topic.

Examples

Short briefing

In order to avoid spending a lot of time replacing the vehicles in crew slots for different battles, push the “↑↓ Presets” button, then “Add”. Create the vehicle preset according to the intended conditions, and name it clearly. By doing this, you will not have to constantly change the vehicles in your crew slots each time, and you will be able to switch between different presets for different battles (of different BR or game modes) pretty fast.
