Tactics refers to organization of actions made by players during a battle. Some also use the term to refer to strategies arranged prior to encountering the enemy (espcially in response to the metagame).

A good player prepares for battle by choosing relevant builds and organizing their team, but they must also choose the best techniques during combat based on events as they unfold. Good PvE players know whether to pull or just draw aggro, PvP players need to know how and when to split, and everyone should know the difference between kiting and running away.
