So I haven't played World Of Tanks in years.  I know its an optimized game, but I also hear that wargaming is going to be making loads of changes to it in the coming years.  I'm not exactly sure of what's changed and what hasn't changed in the game.

 

I will also say that yes I will be a tank noob again.  So back to square one on the game but we shall see once I have it downloaded and good to go.

You have these choices [random battles]:

Play low tiers and get clubbed by tier 5 tanks.

Play mid tiers and be a clubber in a tier 5 tank.

Play tier 6 and have to fight in tier 8 battles against OP premium tanks in a majority of battles.

Play high tiers and get hammered by arty players in a lot of the battles.

 

Get yourself some tier 5 tanks to play in randoms. Get some tier 6 tanks to play in skirmishes and team battles. Get some tier 8 to play in skirmishes and team battles. High tier randoms are garbage with arty in most battles. There are arty at mid tiers but I really don't find them anywhere as much of a problem at that level compared to higher tiers.

Get a KV-1 or KV-1S, T67 or Wolverine, T-34 or M4 for tier 5 and play these in randoms and get your crews trained up. You can now join other clans skirmishes [even when you are not in a clan] which are better than random battles at higher tiers. Get some of the most played tanks for those. You will want a Cromwell for tier 6, IS3 for tier 8. There are a few other tanks used in those modes and you will find out as you play but the Cromwell and IS3 are top tanks played for skirmishes and team battle modes.

I'd say just don't waste your time.  Support has gotten worse, and the player base is exponentially worse than it was.  Whatever led you to leave in the first place isn't going to be any better.

So what possesses you to still come to the forums if you feel the game is not worth playing?

Ok so next question.  I know the last go around of tanks I was pretty nasty in tanks getting high damage good kill scores.  World of Warships has of course Warshipstoday.com you can see and track your win rate what ever.  Does world of tanks have something similar to this where you can link your account to a stats tracker?  I really don't care about stats but it would be nice to see how well or how poorly I do to make improvements.

I don't appreciate people trolling my forum posts on any forum regardless of which game it is.  It is quite annoying and it drives the conversation off topic.  I suggest you not do it again, other wise I will submit a ticket about it with a screen shot ok kid.

WotLabs / XVM is the WOT stats tracker. A lot of guys use it, and a lot of guys hate it because it creates stats monsters.

Don't go SJW on me, OK newbie? And it is very much true for many people that I know so I'd recommend you to control your sensitive feelings that I do not give two [edited] about.

Agree 100%. WG has shown itself incapable of making rational decisions to keep this game good.

 WoT is now a joke, a shadow of its former self.

WG only cares, imho, about suckering money out of the stupids.

Since when, OP, is saying "Addiction and habit of playing" in this thread is 'off topic'. This is the reason why players keep playing. Duh!

& 'hector' is not trolling, imho.

I chose options 2 and 5, because I play4funz.

I'm the one you should be criticizing, if anyone, but my point is that if you're used to not playing you're probably better of keeping it that way because whatever frustrated you enough to stop before hasn't gotten better and is likely far worse.

Tech trees- Depending on your playstyle, US, German or Russian heavies (hull down, snipers/superheavy armor thugs, and brawlers, respectively), French, Czech or Russian mediums, British or US TDs (heavy armor, armor and/or turrets respectively), British arty (best firing arcs, decent variety within the tree).  French or Russian lights  (autoloading raiders, hull-down fighters).
