I've always referred to the learning curve as somewhere between the Matterhorn and Mt Everest and you've only ever lived in Florida and the tutorial you received before heading out was "Hey, here's an ice pick, use it to pick things, have fun"

 

It's a bit better today than it was on the way back machine, but it's still not a kind environment to newbies and the nuances are still poorly explained.

Since you're a console player switching to PC I will give you fair warning that the playerbase is quite salty for various reasons. Other than that I recommend you go into options and select the option "Accept invites or messages only from friends/clanmates" because then you'll avoid all the nonsense after battle messages from neckbeard keyboard warriors. Another thing is on PC we can download what is called the Test client which allows you to play basically any tech tree tank you want . Its made so players can try out new updates before they're released on the live server. We are about to get Italian tanks in the next patch and you can install the test client by downloading this http://redirect.wargaming.net/WoT/latest_web_install_ct. When a new update is released for the test server just start up the test client and it will update itself so no need to uninstall it unless you need the hardrive space.

 

Here is a site where you can check armor profiles of various tanks. You select a tank then go into the model viewer and at the bottom click the name of the tank you're playing then select the gun and ammo type. This allows you to easily see where your tank needs to shoot it in order to pen.

Anyways some videos I post for new players...you'll learn a hell of a lot more from these videos than that crappy excuse they call a tutorial.

​You had to go there.  I don't know cause I've never played it on PS4; however, console is different would you not agree?

Oh yeah the gameplay is totally different. They were getting better, useto be one big brawl.

Sounds like they had the same map designers from the PC version...nothing but corridor brawls.

Think it was more the COD mindset. Can't really twitch yolo and do well in wot. You gotta use your head in tanks. They getting the hang of it last I tried on PS4, was months ago.

It's not bad or anything, just like mouse and keyboard.

Nice learning curve adjective. Personally I like "Hell on earth, devil rampaging in wanton destruction, disease and famine are rampant learning curve" - but you inspired me, so +1 for Ninja and creativity.

 

​Well I hope you take what you can and keep going with it.
