So I often hear people complaining about tanks sitting on the periphery and usually a feeling of "stat padding". This could be true I guess, but from my personal experience most of the time it doesn't make sense to do much else. I don't often see protection between tank and infantry (vice versa). I generally am an aggressive tank player, but the fact that I get zero protection from the team as I progress towards an objective and cover them makes it more effective to sit outside the objective and clear it from there. I would think the most effective way to move forward would be with squads and vehicles working together. Yeah I don't know if I have a point.... just a perspective.
