Replays are also a good source of some great desktop wallpaper.

 

If you have a game where there is an unusual event (like a cartwheel down a hill) or a special kill (like a "skeet shot" where you shoot and kill a tank while its in the air) you can use the replay to freeze the moment and then use the V key to remove all the in game UI to get a perfect shot of the event.

More foliage is the bane of frame rates.  The more you add, the higher the load on the server.  With the new physics and graphics additions, there has actually been a bit more foliage (other than Dragon's Ridge, which I never got to play on --  Pearl River and there was another one Hidden Village that had about as close to jungle as it got).  It's not so bad if ALL the foliage is the SAME foliage, but that kills the immersion factor.  So with all the varied foliage (grasses, weeds, flowers, bushes, shrubs, trees, etc) it becomes a balancing act between providing cover/concealment, cool factor and server load.

 

About the best answer I can give you.

Not sure if they are still a thing, but look up "Lert's Guides." They were the best thing I saw for new players. Good Luck.

 

Found them, memorize this info....

http://forum.worldof...tion-of-guides/

 

 

Upon first click of a couple in this list it says they are unavailable...do I need to register something or somewhere else?

They may have been archived.  A lot of times, the guides and tutorial links take you to another thread.  In SOME cases, WoT, without really thinking it through, will archive a thread that is locked, inactive or is of a certain age -- and then that breaks the link, because an archive link is different than the original link.  This is the most likely explanation.

 

Keep trying other links in the list and also, maybe post a note in whichever thread link you are using to let the originator (In this instance I presume you'd want to post in Lert's Guides to inform Lert) that the link is no longer working.

Last question on this topic...I need to update the Aslains mod pack but each time it looks like it sends me to a spam site for a PDF reader.....am I missing something?

Looks like some good info here I may have to check out...my biggest beef is I never run into players who are as bad as I am. 

Just by admitting to being bad and wanting to improve you are automatically in the top 50% of the playerbase honestly.

Wow, I'm at 6400 games, and can only dream of the day I reach Tier IX & X!

 

 

It would be more a nightmare for the other green players, though, I'd wager.

Took me 2 years to grind out my first T-X.

IS-7.

Good tank, not so good when I'm in it, even with a 5 skill crew, but a good tank.
 

Don't be in a rush to get to T-X.

Its the journey NOT the destination that is what its all about.

When you download from Aslains site there are really TWO links for each download server.  Click the 'direct' link and you should not get ads.
