Howdy New Player,

 

Welcome to World of Tanks.  We hope you enjoy your stay here.  To help you enjoy your stay here, be sure to buy some Premium Time and a few Premium Tanks.  And if you happen to be playing Tiers 2 or 3 (II or III) this week, let me explain a few things:

 

1) When you lost 3/4 with the first shot, and then died from the second shot without ever seeing or knowing what happened, that was one of the 2-4 FCM36Pak40's on the enemy team.  

2) If you're lucky enough to be playing that ONE TANK that Wargaming gives the 6th Sense and you're wondering why your buzzer didn't go off, that's because the player in the Pak40 has Tier 10 (X) view range, is using something called a camo net, has 35,000+ battles and a 5 Skill Crew that makes him invisible to you.

3) When you suddenly EXPLODED without having a clue as to why, that was one of the 3 Sexton 1's on the enemy team.  A Sexton 1 is not really a tank, but something we call a Self Propelled Gun or Artillery.  They usually don't get spotted until the end of the game, if ever.  So just trust me, that's what did it.

  - If you heard or saw splashes around your tank before you exploded and you stopped to ponder why, that's because all 3 enemy Sexton 1's were shooting at you but missing slightly.

 

My advice would be to AVOID Tier 3 at least until mid June and instead go buy yourself a Tier 8 Premium Tank (Hambijon or KRZY_Boop will be happy to show you) so you can go play with the rest of the new players this Summer. It's always a party at Tier VIII...


Best of luck!

Lesson 2 will begin right after they start selling the Ice Claw during the Black Market.

Solid advice from a dedicated seal clubber.  1158 games in his pak 40.

I LOL’ed for what was an uncomfortably long time. I’m sure it was just me channeling some low tier PTSD “right of passage” emotions. 

Im grinding the tier 5 Polish tank and those tiers are just absolutely awash in clubers running only the best tanks with like 2K battles in their respective mounts. So you’ve just described my past week or so.

Let's just say I'm a Tier 3 expert ;)

Bitter?  I just think it's funny that Tier 3 tanks are being promoted to older/experienced players.

 

If you were the owner of a game that was designed to get players to want to "get hooked" on it, I would think that letting their new experiences be enjoyable would be somewhat of a priority.  As it stands now, no one cares at all about anything.  I paid $30 for my Pak40 a few months back - I've gotten my money's worth out of it.  :coin:

I just bought one of those things for 3.5 Million Credits.  Came with a slot and a 100% crew, too.  No real money exchanged.

 

 

I'm thinking I got the better deal.

I think you need to fix #2 - your 6th will go off with rare exception, you just won't see them.

But yeah, WG eating the seed corn is how I see it.

I bought 2 of the Sextons (in 2 separate accounts) just to take them off the market... I'll never play them, but I was happy to spend a million credits to make the game a bit better for real tank players.

 

I'm down to 162 million, now.  I hope there are some good things coming up in the Market for credits... I want to spend some.

He's doing it wrong.. Be like Royal, he only seal clubs in his E25 with 71.6% camo and 524 VR. :justwait:

Thank you for the welcome _Warchild_. My brother introduced me to the game a couple of weeks ago. I like WOT very much. Also, I've seen you a lot before actually. I usually run into you in tier 3 battles in the South American server usually in a Pz. 38 (t)  but sometimes in other tanks. You are also usually platooned with other high PR players who use such similar tanks. Anyways, hope to run to you again in the future but hopefully on your team because no matter how hard we try when you and your platoon mates are on the other team, we just can't seem to win. Bye.

WarChild didn't I see on Overlord yesterday in your Pak40?  :teethhappy:

 

In case you were wondering who shot your teams flank to pieces on the beach in a Pak.... it was ME! LOL

 

In all seriousness... yes I agree the next week or so will be a bit tough for newer players in the low tiers. But like everything else... this glut of Paks and Sextons will pass and things will go back to normal. There were Pak40s in low tiers when I started a little over a year ago... yeah it sucks to be noob right now... but this Black Market sale has also given some players the chance to be behind that 75mm instead of on the receiving end for a change.

 

I bought a Sexton too... for the price of a set of binocs it was a no-brainer IMO....

I was like "gosh dangit, Bored is on red team.  need to kill him"  "hold up, is he trying to skirt the edge with that BT7?  BOOM!"  Got you with the first and maybe the second shot, but my RNG was fierce that battle.  FYI - There were 4 tanks closer to you but I was the one that spotted you with my Pak40  :playing:

Hmm,

 

When I drop down to grind a line - I have yet to FreeXP anything - I attempt to club the clubbers.  Makes for a worse WR, but it is far more satisfying to target the turds that make life miserable for the little ones.

 

On the positive side, it does teach me a few things.  Since I try to avoid the NewBs I have to really concentrate on the mini-map, find seams, study the pre-game panels, practice target priority, and stay alive.  Only then will I be able to rejoice in splattering some gaudy eggplant that drops a tier or seven to smash up some tomatoes with eight games in them. 

 

XVM Sniping is a Good Thing:medal:

 

Oh, the joy.
