Hey Guys
I am new to WOT, well i just passed 1000 games. I suck. When i first started i figured id be ok at least after a couple of games.There are so many things about this game i love, and the people (for the most part) are very helpful and want to help it seems. Well i need some help so im gonna ask. I will begin with this: I choose my 2 pz. ll, or any other of my tds or my med tank and roll out. Meet up with a tank and get smoked. Repeat.. Repeat. I will fire 6 times sometimes if i get a chance, they turn and with one shot take me out. So frustrating to lose every single time i come up against other tanks.
Ill see in the distance light tanks just roaring amongst opposition and lighting them up! Me... Im too busy freakin hiding cause i just saw a red triangle and i just know when we meet im toast! Dont get me wrong, ive had a few amazing games. But today... Im losing so much silver every time i play, and just cant seem to make any difference. There was one game where i captured the base, and there was 1 light tank left on opposition team, he came all the way across and with one second left rolled in me blazing my guns at him and he popped mecwith one shot!
I was just so bummed. Lost cap points and the game.Any way, this is just one of my many admitted weaknesses and i want to play this game better and more intelligently. I would appreciate any suggestions and tips.
How about when you hear these kids that sound like they are 3 years old and i just hope that it wasnt that kid that just blasted me. Xylo65

Just keep playing at lower tiers. The higher tier your playing the more difficult it is to stockpile silver and XP. Be patient, the game is worth it.

Thanks for doing this sobering.  I'm not a new player myself but I feel that pages like this should be promoted on the game for newcomers to help them start

Hey everyone! 


During the month of February we had a variety of contests with the focus being creating guides for new players. I've collected all of the winners and decided to put them here in the newcomers section.

Good job with this WG and all who helped out. Players helping players is a great thing to see. Good work all the way around on this!

umm...ya. I probably should have read this first as well. I ve been playing rapid fire games, leaving my disabled tank in game and going to the garage to grab another tank. I've been using my silver and XP to just level up. This was just putting me in higher tier brackets! I'm getting tired of the one shot one kills as well! I'm gonna go back and start playing low tier and saving up my silver!

Not sure if it's appropriate for this section, but I'd like to find the Tier IX/X guides a permanent home as well.

I have Xbox 0ne and have a little over 7k games played and my games have been good and bad. I curently am thinking on purchasing a PS4. I know that PS4 has a few things sound wise, such as German crews speaking German an so on. However my main question is while we are on console servers do my gold, silver and free xp carry over to my PS4. I know it doesnt going from console to computer. Or I would have bought a computer. Also I hope that all my stats, tanks, gold, and free xp will carry over from xbox to PS4? Can someone help me with this..

Sorry nothing can be carried over between Xbox and PS4.  You need to start again totally.

Hi tankers!

I've been tanking with war gaming and world of tanks now since the closed beta on xbox360. I have been responsible for two different accounts which I have spent literally THOUSANDS of dollars on. Want some sage advice from a grizzled veteran? DO ANYTHING ELSE WITH YOUR TIME THAT YOU CAN. THIS GAME IS [edited]AND ISN'T EVEN A DECENT WASTE OF TIME. THE MORE YOU PLAY THIS GAME, THE MORE LIKE A CANCEROUS TUMOR IT BECOMES UNTIL THE VERY IDEA OF IT WILL SEND CONVULSIONS OF DISGUST THROUGH YOUR BODY. YOU'RE BETTER OFF PLAYING WITH GASOLINE AND MATCHES. LITERALLY BETTER FOR YOUR HEALTH

Why do bad players always accuse good players of cheating. Is their complex really that bad?

Your vitriol is a bit disingenuous as you continue to play. :)
