I recruited up my eldest kid to play WOT through special code granting both of us large Boxes. 

He loves the game even though he’s still learning basics.  One thing he finds annoying is the wait time at tier 1.  I’ve seen him time out twice in a row on Monday.  He got discouraged and stopped playing for a while.  I had to prod him several time to play.  It’s much better a tier 2, and after that tier 3 and up there is almost no wait time.

I noticed that at tier 1 he got into 10 vs 10 games… I guess WG is aware of the issue, but that’s not enough.  I would highly recommend bot players for tier 1 to reduce wait time.

In all honestly not much time should be spent playing tier 1 if any, you could almost just free experience a tier 1 after playing a few games in a tier 2 or 3. Tier 1 is a silly tier because all tanks are garbage and really don't see a point for them in game.

 

1 maybe 2 games in a tier 1 to get the x2 or whatever should get you off a tier 1.

you literally play one battle at tier 1 and then you have enough xp to get to tier 2

^ This.

 

Get yourself to Tier 2 as quick as you can. Or use the code that gives you a free Tier 2 or Tier 3 vehicle.  Or use the gold from the boxes to purchase a Premium vehicle.  Leave Tier 1 behind...

Here's a question: Almost all answers are to play 1 or 2 battles at tier 1, a couple tier 2, etc, why bother having Tiers 1-4 in the game at all? Start all players at Tier 5 since that is where most on the forums tell new players to go to anyway.

This is the second time I have seen a post like this, You get a Tier 3 after finishing boot camp and also a commander with sixth sense.

OP the current server split for the holiday event isn't helping matters, hopefully once they shut East back down it'll get a bit better.  But it's still tier one, so long wait times will occur especially during non peak times.  Fortunately per the others it gets better once you get to tier 3.

Keep in mind I'm talking from a new player perspective... someone who knows not what he's doing.  He got a tier 3 US tank from the mission, then he tried to lay loltractor....

 

I know he has enough free experience to get tier 2... I told him to use it on modules instead.

Tier 1 is just crazy fun.  I miss the madness at times.  I think they should have "Tier 1 Tuesday" from from 6-10PM for everybody who wants to bomb around and get kooky with machine guns.
