I'm pretty new and still pretty frustrated with this game. I have a good time playing it when it goes well but a lot of games I just feel so angry that I don't know how to be better. Now when I say "better", I do not mean win. I mean staying alive longer, doing more damage and helping my team more. I made a post recently asking for help with positioning on maps and I took it. I installed a mod and have been following more experienced (or at least with a high win rate) players around. It's helping sometimes. Sometimes its just getting me killed because I'm following a gung-ho idiot.

 

I'm just wondering if there's anyone who is willing to take some time to play with a noob and offer some criticism when they see me doing things wrong. I would LOVE to get on Discord (or use text chat, I don't care) and get some advice from a veteran. Plus, I just don't have any buddies who will really play this game. I'm mainly playing tier 4-6 tanks at this point. I have a few lower tier tanks I play because I like them or because I want to grind up those lines. I do have some time constraints unfortunately... I'm sure like a lot of you, I need to be up for work in the morning. Weeknights are hard for me if it's late due to work the next day. Weekends are ideal. If anyone's willing, let me know!

Sure. 

 

Tell me around what times you play in a Private Message (PM) over the game or on the forum, I may or may not be on since I actually have a life as a World of Tanks player (surprise! lol). Please reply to PMs of times when you receive them. 

 

Thanks!

You can use the signup link for signup genius. Otherwise, just be in discord.  No need to pre-register.

I know how frustrating it can be as a new player.

If you see me online feel free to send me a message and we can run through some training for you.

I am not the best player out there, but I do know a fair amount about what will help you to improve and hopefully start enjoying the game a little more.

Thanks very much, I'll definitely take you up on that!

Until you get equipment (rammers, vertical stabilizers, optics, etc) and 100% crew with perks (Brothers in Arms, Sixth Sense, etc) and quality tanks with all the upgrades, I'm afraid you (any everyone else) are doomed to be cannon fodder on the battlefield for your first couple-thousand battles. Not to forget fighting against those wildly-overpowered premium tanks as wallet-warriors spam gold rounds at you.

 

Most seal-clubbers can easily kill a new player before that new player has a chance of even SEEING them. That is the nature of how poorly World of Tanks is designed - it seriously screws-over new players.
