Hey everyone, old casual player returning after a year long gap. I had great vehicle/gold luck last year during christmas but terrible luck with the client and FPS back then so I couldn't enjoy or practice, or even really be effective in any way. Now that I'm pulling a constant 60 though I'm looking to get back into the game and practice/platoon with some friends throughout some of the lower tiers so I can get a feel for the gameplay again.
Would love to talk strategy, always up to learn. Most of what I know can be outdated due to youtube videos simply not keeping up with every tank patch/alteration. So if you wanted to drop your 2 cents in on current changes and patches between last christmas and now I'd appreciate it. Or if you see a vehicle name and think "Hey, I know that pretty well" please feel free to comment.

Fine with T6+ platooning but not super into letting teams down with my current level of stale suck so looking for early tiers and patient buddies to wait through queues with.

Took the time to go in and catalogue my garage before hopping in here. I'll spare you the screenshot links/imagespam but here's what I'm currently working with and would be happy to platoon with you.

Sorry for the massive post, but to my own credit I did try to keep it small and efficient. Looking forward to seeing what you all have to say about the current state of things, and anything that may stand out among my current garage. Metas, horrible weaknesses, strategies etc.
