I am very new to the game (Played for 2 days,) and I have been grinding on the football matches that are in the game and that has got me to 1,390,000 coins which is enough to buy the tiger 1 but it says I can't research it, I am also sure I have enough free exp. So what am I doing wrong?

You don't. Take the Leichttraktor and begin playing.

So is there no way to buy a higher tier tank without taking the pathway? because surely that takes a lot of time to reach tier 7

Before you can run, you first need to learn to curl up and cry.

Dont just skip straight to mid tiers when you are brand new and ruin the game for everyone else on your team by being that guy who has no idea whats going on and causes a defeat, Grind up to it starting from tier 1 like any normal person would and learn how to play properly first

Well, technically, you could unlock it for free xp only, you just need much more. Then you get a really nasty surprise when your dream tank gets butchered because you have not a slightest idea how to play tanks in general, and you are stuck with one that is pretty tough to play even for the experienced players, and you will likely add to the already long list of forum threads that beging with something like "how come my Tiger isn't invincible like the real one was".

 

I haven't tried it, but a proper no-lifer should be able to unlock a tier 7 in about 1-2 days. This way you also get an idea how the game works, and you get to experience some heavy tanks that play somewhat like Tiger on your way.

You've played 16 battles in 5 tanks.

You have a 25% hit rate (which is shocking) and a 31% win rate which is one of the lowest I've ever seen.

You've hardly killed any opponents.  In 3 of your 5 tanks you've never killed an opponent.

In 1 of your 5 you've never done any damage.

 

 

You've played 8 battles at tier 3 and your average damage per game is 39.  The stock gun as an average damage of 40, the top gun has an average of 135.  It's a 200 Hit Point tank.  So you should be doing >200 HP and 1 kill to be pulling your weight.

 

At the very easy to play, low tiers you are doing practically nothing and yet you want to rush up to tier 7 and get ripped a new Rse hole every single game ?

 

Let me give you a short list of just a few things in this game that you have absolutely no clue about (yet).

 

1) Spotting mechanics

2) How to use armour

3) Shell types

4) Opponent weak spots and where to shoot.

5) Where to go on each of the 40ish maps in the game

6) Crew skills/perks

7) Equipment upgrades

8) 3/5/7 MM template

9) Avoiding arty

 

Do yourself a favour.  Don't rush up the tiers.

Play every tier 1 tank and get used to the ones with fast fire and the ones with good armour.

Play all of the different tank types.

Play the in game tutorial.

Train some crews up to 100%.

Get some wins under your belt.  Earn some medals.  You don't have a single "Fire For Effect" yet.

Don't new players get to choose a tier 6 tank after the new training thing ? That would get you within 1 tier of unlocking the Tiger 1.

 

Playing low tiers first to get used to the game would be the better thing though as others have said and make playing higher tiers less frustrating.

First of all those games were just me messing about I wasn't actually playing properly so you can't judge me on that one also why did you take 7 mins of your time looking at stats and then writing a rant going on about how I shouldn't get a tier 7 vehicle

Because, like the entirety of the player base, I don't want you rushing up to tier 7.

Because you aren't the only noob who might read this post.

Because other posters might try to be "helpful" without realising just how poor a player you are.

 

From your attitude I'm starting to think I wasted my time.

Never trust anyone with numbers in their name.

Oh the irony.

I make a comment about OP's name, and you quoted an edited post. How is that ironic ?

And change your nickname. The last 2 letters, specially in capitals, are quite offencive to a lot of people.

That is actually kind of mildly formulated.....

I believe the irony is in a combination of a sentence in your signature and the name of our overzealous moderator. At least I found it funny.
