  • How do I get one of those updating signatures with my stats and name on it?
    Head over to WotLabs.net and type in your tanker name. Below the grid displaying all your stats will be a link stating "Forum Signature Image". Clicking that link will take you directly to the generated image. Place that direct URL into your signature (To change that, click on your name in the top right on the forums, and hit My Settings, The Signature tab will be available on the page it takes your too) and the image will be displayed.

My Signature won't allow it, what do i do?!

Its the image extension- there's a thread JewelThief is posting on about the image whitelist, I'll post there.

I'll shoot you a PM when she replies.

EDIT: Forums working like a baws. It added the light image, didnt like the dark one.

Add http://wotlabs.net/s...t/signature.png via the image button.

I know this is a dumb question but since it wasn't posted in your forums section,

How do I upload screenshots? I tried my media but it says there's nothing there. Image only allows URL's.

Not a dumb question at all. I need to add that to the list.

Upload your pics to www.tinypic.com and paste the text from the box that says BBCode, and has [IMG] at the start into a text box here.

Can you fix the clan links so that there's one for usa, instead of forwarding to the asia board?? I'm not from China? XD

Fixed all the SEA links to NA ones, they work fine now.

Thanks. Oh, and actually, SEA isnt the Chinese server- they have their own one.

Mick666... great guide.  Wish it was here when I first started.  The community really appreciates all of your work on this.  Giving you my +1s for the day.

And if there’s a mistake or a typo, please tell me.

You asked.. so if you'll let me nitpick just a little bit:
  • "Seperate" should be "SEPARATE"  (dictionary)
  • "The developers have stated many times that Tier 10 is the highest the game will go, because it would become very unbalanced and most lines wouldn't continue very far past their current state..."
  • "The developers have ruled against adding this into the game, since destructible bridges would make traveling across the map much longer..."
  • "Long barreled tanks- not just German L100s- were severely handicapped trying to peek a boo."
  • "Therefore, they are not disadvantaged as much with high tier battles. This applies to French lights as well."
  • "One, they make the base not look like some arbitrary position on the map, but a used position."
  • "They have done sufficient sufficient team damage for it to be deemed not an accident, and to be intentional.  At that point, no compensation is giving to said player if he is attacked by his own teammates (only attack him if he won't stop killing team mates)."
  • "Three players can be in a single platoon, and all those sharing the same numbered shield are in the same platoon."
  • "Alternatively, in clan chat or a channel, you can right click on someone's name and go 'Add to friends list'."
  • "If you want to to take it further, or run out of complaints, open a ticket with support to get some action taken."  This sentence appears twice in successive paragraphs.
  • Of course, we have the American way of spelling words such as "Defense," "Armor," "Colored" and the like, but I've not pointed those out. =)
I hope that you take this reply in the spirit in which it was intended.  I do not want to 'nitpick' because this thread is an amazing mashup of really useful information.  Again, thank you so very much for putting it together.

Oh! ... one other thing, if I may...

Is there a way to turn off the in-game chat entirely? Could not find that in the game settings.

I have found that a post-it note comes in very handy.  I wouldn't want a mod to shut it off entirely should there come a time when communication is essential to winning the battle.

I have a noob (i don't like that term as everyone was new to this game at one point) question. If I sold a tier 1 tank, can I ever buy it back? I didn't like the TDs when I first played them but now that I've seen how people have used them, I'd like to give them a try again.

Yes.  Once you sell (or give away, actually, they don't cost anything and you get nothing for selling them) a tier 1 tank you can always go back providing you have space in your garage for it.

  • What is the highest credit earning premium tank?
    The tank earning on average the most amount of credits is the Type 59. Second after that is the Jagdtiger 8.8cm. See this website to see the collated and average earnings of every tank in the game.
  • What is the highest credit earning non-premium tank?
    Currently, the tank earning the most on average per game (that is not premium) is the T1 heavy tank, followed by the T-34 medium tank.). For a full list, consult this website.
This website's info doesn't match yours. For example, it says the M10 Wolverine makes more money.

I don't come over here often, so its inevitable that such details get out of date. It looks like the data is changing, not fixed.
Ive updated the post, and the link to specifically show T5 tanks only.

Also updated this with the latest version from SEA, so theres a lot of new stuff. The biggest one is a moderation section- none of that was barred from being said by my superiors on SEA, so it shouldnt be banned here. If its out of date here though- possibly the one for getting a warning and then having to acknowledge it- just tell me, and I'll update it.

Also need-

Head of Community for NA, your maintenance schedule and what time the doubles reset.

Or, yknow, not. No biggie.
