2.Why can`t i get these tanks that i don`t see in the tech tree t7 combat car,MKA ect they wreck me then again i am only on tier 2 

3.Bushes don`t seem to provide camo i get shot by people even if i hide i must be missing something

4. This new player referral program how do i join it?

I used to play this game a lot years ago on a different account, and I just started again so what I say may not be 100% true, but..

 

1. This is really on a tank by tank basis, generally it's up to your preferences. Russians tend to have the best tanks, and the french lights are pretty good

2. These are special tanks that they've removed or given as a reward to certain players. I have a few on my 6 year old account

3. They only provide a small percentage to be factored into the spotting algorithm. Camo paint + camo net + bushes + not shooting your gun + etc... all factor into this.

As for question 4 I'm not sure, i havent been around long enough recently to know about that

 

Hope i helped :)

1. Nations dont have overall weakness's. Its a tank by tank basis

2. Exclusive tanks. (prem shop). You can get them from time to time.

3. Not all bushes work right now. But they need to be opaque to work if you are firing. Also, keep in mind the camo system is complicated, and not as straight forward might think

4. You need to have 1k battles to invite people. once the account is created, it cant be added.

quit while your ahead

find another game

 game is for Russian  players only

the maps all favor the Russian Op tanks

all updates are more buffs for the Russian tank tree

all tank characteristics for non Russian tanks are all lies

don't believe anything wargaming says

there's only 1 tank tree to grind

can you guess what it is ?

you guessed it its Russian !

and DON'T spend any money on the game

it's a waist and you will regret it

my opinion anyway

Germany, mediocre nation dont bother

USA, nation with decent tanks

French, nation with good tanks but high skill cap

Russia, best nation because company is belorussian and biggest market is russia

UK, okay tanks with a few OP sprinkled

China, similar to Russia but with more weaker tanks

Japan, heavy tanks take 2 chromosomes to play

Sweden, very niche play styles also see French

Czechoslovakia, see French

Italy, see French

Honestly I'd walk away while you still can. I wouldn't recommend this game to any friend of mine. Why do I play it? I am invested in the game. The new wheeled vehicles make the game so much worse. That's my opinion though take it or leave it. If you want to make life easier for yourself though should you continue play the Russian line. I'd highly recommend a Russian medium.

I can only answer question 3:

 

You have to learn where your visibility checkpoints are (watch the Wargaming Vehicle Spotting video below), and have them covered by the bush or bushes, else you will be spotted if some enemy tank is around.

 

And this is a finer point of camouflage: you can rotate (traverse) your turret as much as you want, and it will not break your camouflage.

 

But if you move your tank (not talking about the traversing of the turret, but the moving of the hull), even when in a bush, I think that lessens your camouflage -- until you stop moving your hull around.

I quit the game. Cannot tell you how, because part of how I can do it is that it needs to be kept secret -- there's power to keeping things a secret.

 

But here's just something I want to post, called the 'Sunk Cost Fallacy':

 

What is this fallacy?

In economics, a sunk cost is any past cost that has already been paid and cannot be recovered. For example, a business may have invested a million dollars into new hardware. This money is now gone and cannot be recovered, so it shouldn’t figure into the business’s decision making process.

Or, let’s say you buy tickets to a concert. On the day of the event, you catch a cold. Even though you are sick, you decide to go to the concert because otherwise “you would have wasted your money”.

Boom! You just fell for the sunk cost fallacy.

Sure, you spent the money already. But you can’t get it back. If you aren’t going to have a good time at the concert, you only make your life worse by going.

OP, ignore all the idiots saying quit. Play the game make your own mind up. You will find a lot of salty snowflakes angry at the game due to their own failings.

IIRC it needs to be a new account that is referred. To be honest though, im not 100% sure. Tsavo would know, He's also really helpful, PM him and ask. Also tell him I said hes a big girly girl.

Only a new account can be refereed UNLESS you stop playing with less than 200 battles (I think), after 60 days. You can refer after 1k battles for new players.
