Guess they feel there are enough Polish players in the game, such that they are forced to recommend it?

To be honest I'd rather they changed to tutorial approach so that you spent longer at T1-5 but got big rewards of cash and equipment for doing so.

 

I'd also advise a new player (well should I say a player new to this sort of game as I was those years ago) to play campy TDs and SPGs a fair bit as you spend more time with an overview of the battle and less time running around dying.

Guess they intend to misguide newcomers to play less popular tanks in order to achieve greater variety of vehicles in battles.

If any new player is reading this - go with OI - best choice of those, and that high penetration gun is awesome. If you don't know how to use armor piercing ammo, take the big gun and shoot high explosives at you enemies (don't use AP with big gun) :D

 

KV85 is also good, T3485 line is awesome at high tiers. If you want to play arty, pick M44, best tier 6 arty in the game, and maybe best arty in the game.

 

Also, don't rush past tier 6, it's not worth it. You can have fun and learn the game on tier 5 and 6 with proper tanks (OI, M44, KV85, Ikv65, Firefly, T67 and Hellcat, M4 and M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo, T-150 and maybe KV2). All those have good guns and are very good tanks in their class and tier.

Good luck and have fun :)

I'm completely amazed that no one suggested the best tank in game and a must for all new players to enjoy the superiority of mother RASHA....

 

 

The mighty KV2

 

Going to pick that for sure in my alt account for the lulz.

What has everyone got against the 40TP ? I quite like playing mine

But then I guess it's because when I play it I always seem to get put on the Red team (27 games in the 40TP, 19 wins, 70%WR - and it's not because I play like a superUnicorn in it and carry the battles)

Hi! 

I didn't really get it. Can I do it even if I am not a new player? And if yes, what should I do? Should I complete the tutorial again?

Thanks for your answers!

There aren't all the tanks on there that are easy because the article would be too long and tanks like the hellcat, though yes are strong are not the most forgiving, even in terms of grinding and how you need to aim and position yourself or use camo etc. KV2 though is fun etc, many people don't realise to load the HE on the gun and will use AP.

I really don't know why the 40TP, the Jp4 or the VK 30M is there... none of those are even remotely good at what they do

 

the VK is the size of a house and has no armour

the 40TP is slower than most heavies and has no armour

the JP4 has no real penetration and has to deal with T8 tanks with far more armour than its AP shell will ever pen

surely this is also the reason why the JP4 should NOT have been added? 145mm pen at T6? need to use "gold" ammo just to pen equal tier heavies like O-I |(which you put in the list as well!), let alone higher tiers.... this cant be the main reason the KV-2 was excluded "changing ammo types" ? 

 

what about the T-150? that has more survivability and a bigger gun than the other options like the 40TP.. what about the ARL 44? (that really doesn't need ammo type change, the DCA has 212mm pen, perfect for new guys who don't know where to aim yet!) I notice there are no French tanks on that list....

thank god you didn't put the VK 36H though, that would really be misleading the new guys (that tank is terrible against T4's let alone higher)

 

what about the Jumbo?

 

what about the Skoda T25 for a medium? it can introduce new players to an autoloader (which isn't present on the list)

 

 

just seems poorly made imho. there are far better tanks in this game to give to newbies than a VK30M or 40TP...…...

The guide lacked the following: Instead jumping directly to playing at tier 6 you might want to sell the tank for silver and buy proper equipment for your tier 5 tank.

I find it somewhat dubious to suggest either of those two German vehicles for newbies. VK 30.02(M) is a good sniper but it cannot brawl, Jagdpanzer IV has rate of fire but no penetration for the targets it usually meets.

For the medium, VK 30.01(P) would have been a better choice. It has better mobility which helps in brawls, and when doing pokes over a corner. Nashorn is far better tank destroyer choice, it has better penetration which is far more useful to a newbie who has no idea about weakspots.

 

And in general, suggesting German tanks to newbies is disaster. Pretty much the only German tank any newbie can utilize without fail is the Pz. IV. H with the 105mm. The whole tech tree is riddled with support tanks, left, and right. And newbies do not do well in support tanks.

This is list of good tier 6 tanks. Artas are excluded, please teach your new players to play World of Tanks, not World of SPGs. It would be healthy for playerbase and beneficial for all.

 

 

Best T6 SPG is probably the Hummel...

Tried doing the tutorial again, but no new such reward at the end. Great work on the tutorial update though! Much improved, IMO

You have to do both the tutorial and the boot camp missions.  I don't know if the boot camp will be available to you.

Boot camp is the tutorial. That is what the tutorial is called. You get to it through the main menu though rather than through missions or battle type.

I have done the tutorial before, and I did it today again and got nothing. I am not a new player. Can I get that tier 6 or not?
