Can anyone explain what the icons about the tanks mean? Not the type Icons but the ones that come up and then fade away like the ?, !, and red flashing chevrons?  Every thing is very intuitive.  Thanks

I thought I would add an easy way to make some credits for newbies:

As you upgrade your tanks, go into the DEPOT, and sell off what you may not use for your next tank: mainly MODULES and SHELLS.  REMEMBER - don't sell anything you might use on your next tier tank.  You sell it for only half of what you paid for it.

Yeah, I know what you're talking about. When you have your reticule on a tank, if you hit the letter T on your keyboard, it will auto-chat the words "Attacking <FluffytheDestroyer>!" and those chevrons will appear above the tank. Your whole team can see them. It's an easy way to let everyone else know who you are attacking so that you can coordinate fire.

Once you download the game, install and launch the client, you will have to log in. You will then be presented with your garage. A good way to tell if you're in your garage is if you can see the big read BATTLE! button at the top of the screen.

I'm convinced most folks who can't find their garage are looking right at it and just don't realize it.

Yep, that's a good one. I was in tier IV before I realized that.
