How did this player get the Tetrarch if he created his account yesterday (5-17-2017) when the tank was not in the premium store. ALSO, how did he got to the tier II PZ 35 (t) with only 3 battles in total, and neither of them in the German line?

Pz. 35 (t) using free experience and credits from playing the tutorial for the first time. The Tetrarch most likely came from a code.

HE created his account yesterday, and has 3 battles, what free experience? besides what code? there has been no code lately.

Pretty sure completing the joke of a tutorial gives you a small sum of free exp and credits, definitely enough to research a tier 2.

The training option under battle selection, it puts you in the seat of an E8 and walks you through the basic mechanics. First time you play it on account you get a small chunk of credits and free experience to spend on whatever you want

Its part of a reward system for new players. My brother, who I recruited, got a Tetrarch rental for 5 games after his first battle.

so 3 battles and he knows how to use free exp and whatever amount got in the tutorial (supposing he passed it) he used it to skip a tank he did not know (Leichtraktor) and went for the tier II, instead of following the russian line he started with the MS?

The reasons given sound reasonable. Why should it matter to the OP?

Apparently this is the answer I was looking for. Thanks.

The tet may have been a invite code.

 

or

 

New players have personal mission that they complete.  As part of those missions, the Tet is given to them for 5 battles only.  Also, new players can play in Proving grounds and earn XP and Credits for their first 10 battles.  He probably played his first 10 battles in Proving grounds and built up Free XP and Credits and even credits on the tier 1 tanks.  Proving ground battles do not show as battles played.  He then used the research and/or Free XP to move up to tier 2 and started playing Random battles.

Obviously this is a new account created by someone who already knows the game, so of course they knew the tutorial and free XP.

The bigger question here is why do you care? If a players wants to, they can... create an account, buy a Type 64, play Strongholds with some friends, earn XP, buy Gold, convert XP to Free XP, and then research and buy just about any tank they want. It does takes time, especially if the tank desired is above Tier IV, but it's totally possible.

 

I debated doing this to have an account with only an FV304, but after the recent castration of low-Tier artillery, it's just not worth it any more.

Not necessarily.  The new personal missions for new players walks you through using Free XP and purchasing tanks.  As I mentioned, he could have did Proving grounds for his first 10 battles in the Leichtraktor....advanced to the Px.35(t).  It would be very easy to earn enough XP in Proving Grounds to get out of tier 1.  About 1 or 2 battles would gain enough XP to elite a tier 1 tank.

No....only for the first 10 battles.  If you play the first 10 battles in Random, you will not get XP/Credits in PG.
