Like the title says...what has been the most stupid thing you have done when you started playing? 
Actually when i've tried WoT for the first time the graphic  i've seen was very similar to "Codename Panzers" so for  around 6 match  each time my tank was shot badly i've returned on my way back to the base flag hoping to recive repairs  :sceptic:
And ofc i was mad at other people not doin the same not considerin the nerdrage because "the system was bugged"  :facepalm:

Other than starting to play the game and get stockholm syndrome?

Not learning the game mechanics for 2k battles or so would be a good start for me.

For 1st few games, I didn't know shells need to penetrate and I thought dispersion was "the bigger the better" stat. Also grinding tanks without paying attention where it leads to. :D

Like some, I thought you had to race up the tiers...

 

Then I discovered arty and played only arty for quite some time

 

Finally I got invited to join a clan  :unsure:........ the rest is history

Me thinking suicide scouting with the (back then I think) T4 Leopard and T3 Luchs was helping my team.

 

Drove almost immediately into enemy lines, spottet a couple of them, then died.

If I got really lucky I managed to drive to enemy arty and spot or kill it.

The only good thing about it was reading the arty rage about useless teammates in all-chat. :teethhappy:

I can tell the "rest" : discovering that spaming gold ammo was fun ...

Most stupid thing I did was playing 100 games before discovering the "research" process :)

played the first 10k games on a toaster (down to 5fps or even game freezes) and then upgraded to another toaster for the next 10k. :P

 

finally got a decent gaming rig where I don't have to worry about fps drops anymore.

Just a highlight or two:

 

The US LT line was the first I grinded. I was so excited getting the Chaffee, I installed equipment, did the paintjob, and I hit battle... but I had forgotten to buy ammo...

Also, towards the end of the T71 DA grind I discovered that "C" reloads the clip when its not yet empty. Kept firing off the last bullet in the enemies direction so it would reload....

Ignored stats for a good bit. Thought "real" tanks were inherently superior to "blueprint" ones and prototypes.

Played a good 10k battles without regard of, well, knowledge, map, tank types, roles and stuff like that.

That isn't stupid. That is the man-mode, and the only way of playing clickers while retaining decency.

Not knowing you can retrain crews for my first 6k battles, oh the joys of playing a stock KV-4 with a 50% crew.

Thought I was 'getting the hang of it'.

Ongoing, sadly :)

Not understanding the difference between tank-xp and free-xp...

Got up to tier 4 on the british line by just playing the M1. After unlocking the tier 2, I didn't really like it, so I deceided to just play the tier 1 to unlock the tier 3, which worked. After more than 100 battles I realized there was something wrong :teethhappy:

Also did the artillary without knowing about arty view btw
