The first tank I used to play every game was the JP E100. It's so slow that it kept me out of trouble and reasonably forgiving so I would play it until I got my eye in. Unfortunately it used to cost me a lot of credits until I was 'game ready'! Once upon a time it was the T34 or IS6 but they are now seriously bad.

 

Nowadays I always start with the Skorpion G as although it is sometimes very difficult to play I am very familiar with it (but not good) as it is my most played tank. I play until my first win then move on to the Strv S1 and once I've won in it that I'm not fussy and go on to whatever I'm grinding. These two tanks also have the advantage of being credit earners so I don't lose too much at the beginning.

 

What tank do you normally start in and why?

M44 in the morning when I eat breakfast or after I come back home from work. Perfect way to check the environment and see if the environment is trash and I'll probably stop playing after a short time, or move on and pick tanks I want to grind or just like to play.

T49 derp.

No pressure.

 

You either hit, or you don't. It is never your fault. Always the gun's.

Standar B this period, usually my warm up tank is the one I grind more consistently at the period, maybe I am mistaken in this strategy.:hiding:

What ever I am grinding at the moment.

So I get those out of the way and can decide if I want to continue with the madness afterwards or go play something else.

Medium I with tier 2 gun and HE-only.  Nothing matters, just perfect for getting back in the game :)

 

OR just any tank that need grinding - there are just too many of them ^^

I don't know, it depends on how im feeling

 

if im happy or in a good mindset, ill roll out something in T8/9 but if im just looking for some fun in a cheery way, most likely the T40 (and I mean the TD by that, not the medium) or something low tier that doesn't require 100% focus

Luchs. Just brainless bully fun, don't care if I win or lose. And that's why I use it as a warmup. It's just one of those tanks where you have fun almost regardless of the battle outcome.

Same for me, arty obj 261.

I usually join my first battle at 14min30 or even later (I still dunno why), so less a problem with arty.

You can thank WG ;)

Always with one of my two arties just to see how stable my internet connection is. Sometimes I get lots of Time-outs and that ruins the mood
