From wallet warriors to magical RNG, you will somehow not do damage to equal tiers or a tier below you. When you aim at somebody looking for that sweet green spot and it says you didn't penetrate, think of me. Somebody will be trucking full speed and still hit you across half the map. You will wonder why you bother playing this awful, pure trash can of a game. Enjoy. 

 

Oh I almost forgot, the ever so terrible reveal system where somebody can be shooting at you from 50 meters in an open field and for no reason you can't see them. Then every time you get hit no matter what by your crew will be dazed and confused as [edited], your track will be disabled, and somehow your commander and fuel tank will take a direct hit at the same time.

Play Tetris instead.

Sounds like you need to inform yourself about game mechanics instead of complaining.

This is either a troll account or someone so far beyond "casual" that there's not a word for it.

Why can't it be both?

Let's not confuse the issue with facts...

I think the word you're looking for is "irrelevant".

you dont have many games... you still have a lot to learn. unfortunately this game has a very high learning curve and is very unforgiving about it.

 

i suggest watching some videos of good players. also when you die early switch to a skilled player on your team and watch them.

I think the biggest thing he's probably running into is the absolutely horrible learning curve. There's so many stupid, weird, and counterintuitive quirks with this game to learn, and when you're trying to do so with under a thousand battles in your bone-stock T4, playing against guys with 30-50k battles and elited crews that already understand how to fully use / abuse those quirks...

I'd still love to see what the new player retention rate is for this game, I'd be willing to bet it's not good.

 

Oh, and a major suggestion that really has turned the corner on fun for me!  GET IN A GOOD CLAN!  Even with the tier punishment you get for platooning, having a couple other players working with you on teamspeak or discord makes it a ton more enjoyable, and really helps with the learning curve.  Last night I was playing with a couple of my HHour clanmates, and when one of them died off mid battle, he just sat and watched my tank, giving me pointers on my play. That game let us pull back a three to ... seven, I think, deficit in tanks, netted me my third (i think) first-class mastery, reaper, fire for effect, and was only ONE hit short of my second Ace on the Marder 38t!  Having them looking over my shoulder to suggest when and where to go, and how to handle the clutch situations made an amazing amount of difference, I would not likely have been able to do that without help!

Funny... I never experience any of these things (or, maybe it's so seldom that I don't really notice or care).

 

But then... I'm a "glass half full" person.

 

You seem to be a self-fulfilling prophecy type:

Be prepared for a terrible experience

I have a few games under my belt, and have had my commander and fuel tanks hit with the same shot....... a few times.

Then you are a dumpster diver.  The game is so bad you only kept playing it 16000+ times because....

OP, this may not be the game for you.  I suggest you move on and find something you enjoy playing.

The worst is when you shoot a light tank with 40 armor with 260 pen and it bounces.And this is not just the odd time but many times.If W G can make it,they can break it,rng that is.
