3) Revealed to be using an alt account. (Even openly admitting it despite being against the rules.)
for the record alt accounts have not always been against TOS.
also for the record, having multiple people play a single account (account sharing) was not against the early TOS, then it was against the TOS and now it's no longer against TOS.
soooo, timing is everything. it was a type-59. big deal. just a nerfed FCM that no longer trains towards useful tanks. oooooh snap.

Or, perhaps, is it good work by a fellow who did something dumb once, but normally does good things?

Once?   :facepalm:

How about your own admission of rigging two other contests and now claiming you only did it once.

I’m actually going to make this very simple.
Yes, I rigged that game.
About a year and a half ago, WG did a leichtraktor event, in which you got points for having and killing Ltraktors. If you could get your clan together to get multiple teams going, and both maxed out their Ltrak counts and then rolled over for each other, you could submit a perfect score. I pointed this out in detail, discussed it on the forums with others, and was ignored.
23 perfect scores were submitted. Times 15 players per team. 345 cheaters, on that one alone. WG declared a 23-way tie, and divided the entire prize pool amongst them. After that, I began organizing rigging operations. I discuss them freely, on the forums and in the teamspeak.
For example, a year ago, there was an event where you needed a Bilottes, a Top gun or something, and a kamikaze. My clan at the time got together and rigged. It was HARD to rig that one, and in the end, we submitted two entries. Almost managed a third. Total entries for the entire contest? Two. We were the ONLY winners, nobody on the entire server had managed to do it legit.
This isn’t to say that I always rig. All my scavenger hunts and creative contests don’t need it.
T60gate is actually the first time that I’ve ever done this to benefit myself. Prior, it’s always been about getting some gold onto my clanmates.

About that part with dynamic camera, there are mods that allow you to use the "focus on target while moving in sniper mode" while removing the shot recoil and hit recoil. You could include that in your modpack with a notice saying so. Being able to snipe accurately while on the move is really helpful, especially at the fast low tiers.

I'll have to look into that for 8.9

For the time being, I'll leave it out, in order to keep things simpler for the newbies.

*Use FreeXP on parts, never on vehicles.

Good tip here.

I would further suggest that you save the 5% free XP earned in each battle. Save as much of this as you possibly can, and use it to unlock modules on new tanks if you can't afford to buy gold for converting to free XP.

You can really boost that 5% during x3 or x5 events, where you can earn upwards of 500 FREE XP on a good x5 battle in a high tier tank. Over multiple tanks, you can boost your balance by several thousand in a day, then do it again for the next day or two!

Personally, I have 135,000 saved up, all earned from battles! I typically earn about 1,000/day over a course of about 20 battles or so. I use this stash when I'm in dire need of a new gun/engine/etc., but I don't want to throw $6.95 at WG for gold to convert.

That's the freexp I'm talking about. I think of it thusly: "Free XP" is the free 5%, while paying gold is "Converted XP" or "Converted FreeXP".
Or I'll simply refer to the general pool of "can be spent on any tank" XP as "FreeXP."
I'unno, the terminology is confusing, and I am only a dog and I love you.

Could you be a little more specific regarding sources for new player codes?  
It seems a little weird to expect new players to find something that they just found out existed, and then to not get frustrated when the codes they do find have already been taken.

I really can't. Sometimes some places put em up for everyone to use (There were some publications that ran general invite codes for awhile there), and sometimes you can get to the ones on reddit or various forums before anyone else does... But really the most reliable way to get one is to get your own by buying whatever magazine or model-kit or whatevs that they actually come in. If you can't find one, it's not a big deal. I didn't start with one.

Invite codes are uber cheap on Ebay.

Don't forget to spend 500$ building a comp that can play it properly first. If you don't have a half way decent comp already.

Yeah, KingAlphyn made a mistake, once. He owned up to his mistakes, took his lumps like he had a pair and didn't once complain about it. This to me makes him a far better man than any of you people who can't seem to get over the fact that OMG he did a bad thing once! As if all of you are angels who never did any wrong, ever..

You wanna hate KingAlphyn for the rest of your life? Fine. Go ahead. He doesn't give a toss. But that doesn't make his newbie guide any lesser for it.

No, the fact that he's my clanleader has nothing to do with this post. I don't get paid in gold for posting this, I was not asked or told to, I post this because I honestly believe that there are a few haters in this thread who'd do well to Get The Frig Out.
Nixon made a mistake, and we never forgave him.
