I have 2 new tanks in my garage.  It says error joining the battle - the current vehicle is not ready?

Can someone help me here.  These are not my tanks.

 

Thanks

Are they perhaps the T-44 and T32 rentals that are meant to be used in the new Frontline mode?

 

You can't use them in any other mode, Frontline is a new game mode that is available through the top menu right next to the Battle button.

Are you sure?  I'm new here.  I don't understand all this.

 

Thanks for the reply

You more than likely have a T-44 FL and a T32 FL in your garage, these are meant to be used in the Frontlines game mode.

With 7624 battles on your account, the Frontline mode is a lot newer than you :-).

 

It's impossible to be sure without a screenshot but it's my best guess. The only other reason a vehicle is not ready to join a battle, is if it is uncrewed (but it should tell you quite clearly on the caroussel picture if it is), not repaired after its previous battle (which'd also be clearly indicated) or doesn't have any ammunition on board (game gives you a verbal warning through a pop-up window).

Yes - I am new here.  Some of you Guys have 30K+ battles.  I only have 7K.  I'm still getting use to this.

 

Help if you can.

 

Thanks

I think any other experienced player will make the same guess Mav75 and I made. If you want to be sure, please post a screenshot of the tanks in question in this thread.

So you were here when the various rampage modes were on where we got rental tanks, and the Halloween mode last year when we got 2 special tanks, and every other special mode where we got special tanks you could only use in that special mode.

 

And yes, we are sure.

I've been playing WOT for a long time, but I don't understand all the changes.  It's changing all the time, I can't keep up.  AND yes I am new here - only 7K battles  - most of you are 20K+

 

If you can help me please.

 

Thanks

Sarah

^ This is the most likely explanation. In this case the tanks have a Frontline symbol in the tray icon. They can only be used for the new Frontline mode. To access Frontline, you need to select it as your active Battle mode.

Are you waiting for a different answer?

 

Because you are not going to get one.

 

They are rental tanks for the Frontline mode.

 

You know when you start the game and you get that launcher come up?  I know it's very annoying and just another thing you have to click to get on with the game but it does contain lots of news items which it pays to read.

Rental Vehicles
To make the event and its rewards available to as many players as possible, we are introducing two special vehicles that will allow all players to participate in the mode, regardless of whether they have a Tier VIII vehicle or not. The special vehicles are the T-44, Tier VIII U.S.S.R. medium tank and the T32, Tier VIII U.S.A. heavy tank.

If a player already has these vehicles in their Garage, the special vehicles will still be added to their account. Thus, a player may have two instances of the T32 tank in the Garage.

These rental vehicles will be available only for the Frontline mode. The vehicles will be removed from the accounts when the event is over.

at the top of the screen you will see a menu button that allows you to change the mode, random, encounter etc

click it and you will see a drop down list

click frontline mode.

then all the tanks will disappear from your carousel except for the tier 8( don't worry you haven't lost the tanks, merely they have been filtered).

select the tank you want to start the frontline battle with  and click BATTLE !!

 

best of luck, hope you wont be too disappointed by all the issues that frontline has...

20k+ is ancient. 0-2500 is newbie, you're somewhere in the middle.
