Game Introduction – Tank Domination
Tank Domination is a tank warfare game created by Game Insight. You’ll purchase and customize an array of tanks, then join others online in ten-on-ten team tank battles. Gamezebo’s quick start strategy guide will provide you with detailed images, tips, information, and hints on how to play your best game.
Quick Start Guide
- Tank Domination is free to play and can be downloaded by using the “Available On” option at the top of this page.
- When you first fire the game up, you’ll be asked if you would like to receive push notifications. You will not be able to change this setting later.
- After choosing, you’ll be walked through the game’s tutorial mode where an obstacle course will teach you the controls and on-screen help will teach you about customization.
On the Battlefield
- Tank Domination‘s control scheme works like a dual-analog setup. The left side of the screen features a joystick that allows you to move your tank, while the right side lets you aim your turret. The left side also features a button that lets you automatically drive forward, while the zoom and fire options are on the right side of the screen.
- When you jump into a battle, you and nine other players will be split into two teams of ten. After the pre-match timer expires, you’ll be able to roll out and complete either of the two win conditions. The primary goal is to infiltrate the enemy’s base and capture it by remaining there long enough. The other, more common goal is to destroy all enemy tanks. Each player only has one life, so wiping out an entire team is much easier than capturing the base.
- You must purchase ammunition between battles, and each tank has a limit as to how much ammo it can hold. This means you are capped as to how many times you are able to fire during a fight. If you run out of ammunition during a battle, you can still deal collision damage, but that frequently hurts you just as much as your victim.
- If you get destroyed, you can go back to the hangar and jump into a new game, if you have purchased more tanks. If you do not have more tanks, you need to wait for that game to finish before you can play again. Alternatively, you can stick around and watch your teammates play the rest of the game to see if you win. When the match ends, regardless if you win, you can take that tank into a new fight.
Hanging in the Hangar
- Preparation between battles is every bit as important as your attempts to win a fight. The game does an excellent job at explaining everything in the hangar, but here’s our rundown.
- First, shells are a must, since they’re your ammo. You can use up to three types per tank, and you must have at least one to start a match. There’s an option on the main screen to “Refill all automatically.” It’s strongly recommended to use this unless you’re buying a lot of premium-currency shells.
- Support items let you heal yourself and your teammates during a fight. Like shells, they are consumable and can be replenished between battles.
- Upgrades provide small boosts to various parts of your tank. Some may give you a small speed increase, some may increase your firing range, and others may improve or change the qualities of your tank’s armor.
- Power-ups are similar to upgrades except they are more powerful, consumable, and they can be activated at any time during battle. Some of them also provide certain drawbacks, such as revealing your location to the enemy.
- There are about a dozen tanks available for purchase. While few are available early on, you’ll be able to purchase more as you play more games and increase your level.
- You can also purchase visas. A visa gives certain boosts over a set time period. One will give you twenty percent more valor over a four-hour period. Another will increase your defenses by over fifty percent for a month. Some expensive ones get crazy and grant you bonuses to valor, credits, and experience points!
- Finally, you can press the “Vehicle Modules” button to check out a list of all your currently-equipped modules. Each module will improve a different part of your tank, so it is a worthwhile investment to pick up a handful of modules when you get the chance.
Tips and Tricks
- There are a handful of maps you’ll run into, and there are different strategies that can be taken in all of them. In smaller and more cluttered maps, you may find it best to approach slowly, avoid enemy fire, and get a good vantage point on the opposition. There is a level with a fortress in the center that allows you to drive to the top and fire on enemies below.
- Larger and more open stages will allow you to better use a “run and gun” strategy and attempt to attack enemies from a distance. Keep in mind that different tanks and loadouts have different weak points, so two stationary tanks having a staredown will likely favor one. Large levels also provide the best chance for winning the game via capturing the base, as opponents will need to cover the most ground to get back and attack an infiltrator.
- Try to vary the ammo you bring. Some will do little damage, but will be good at piercing armor, while others will do a ton of damage, but not until the armor is destroyed.
- Try to get a second tank as soon as possible and make sure both have acceptable loadouts. This way, if you have a tendency to get destroyed during battle, you can easily hop into a new match. With two tanks, you’ll rarely run into a situation where you’re stuck waiting to play.
