Re: Q&a - open for every ranks!
Ok, I don't want to give away too much of our tactics, but we can take a look at the abilities of the Sharingan, as stated in the Guidelines thread:

The Sharingan's abilities to see chakra is a big method of knowing where your opponent is. It can see chakra through chakra-less tangible objects, such as the ground, meaning that you can sense/see your opponent even if he goes underground. This ability is countered, unfortunately, if your opponent uses wide covering jutsus such as Rain techniques and Mist techniques. But, piece of advice:
You can prevent your opponent from using Mist technique if you use one yourself, without using chakra. If you have a nearby water bank, or create one yourself, and then shoot fire at it, you will create a mist screen in the battlefield. But this mist is chakraless, meaning it doesn't affect your eyes, but it does affect your opponent. Also, since mist is already created, people are less eager to preform the Mist Jutsu. With Rain is a bit different. You can try to create rain clouds by using Wind Style: Severing Pressure or heating the sky (it's a bit of a stretch, but is doable), or you can start the battle by saying it is already raining. But people use the Chakra Sensing Rain sense their opponent, not exactly to impair your view.
Let's move on. In the game of making your opponent unable to attack you, which we all play, or at least we should, having a sharingan is a great addition. Not only you can see better then them, like I explained earlier, it is also harder for your opponents to fight you because they can't look at your eyes. Doujutsu are some of your greatest weapons. But don't try to rush in and just assume your opponents are looking at your eyes. There are methods to make sure you trick your opponents to look at you.
Piece of advice: If you make the first move, and do it just saying: "Looks straight into your eyes with my Sharingan on" there isn't much your opponent can say. If he says: "I look away" it means there was eye contact, and it's too late for him. This trick should take care of most of the members of NB. It won't be enough for more experienced members, but at least it should buy you some time to do something else.
While in the talk of genjutsus, you also acquire the ability to see through genjutsus, up to a certain rank, of course. This may not seem like much, but it is quite big, believe me. Genjutsus can be a ***** sometimes, and most of the cases, they don't even need to be completed to make real damage.
And the next is that you can predict/see your opponent's techniques quite fast. I've manage to avoid many jutsus because of my sharingan's ability to perceive their motions and give me enough time to react. And most of the fast acting techniques have a restriction that say "Sharingan can see through this", and guess who has the sharingan? You
So, Sharingans, if used correctly, can be extremely efficient in a battle.
