    I am d/l the game and have never played. I tend to suck pretty bad at FPS. I will probably play on Tuesday for the first time. Any advice?

    Don't rush when the match starts. Keep your cool and try to stay alive. Passive scouting works so once you've advanced as far as you safely can, get into a hidden (behind a bush) position and don't move. Pick your shots carefully. If you're spotted and start taking fire, get behind a rock. If you can't do anything else take at least one enemy with you before you die.

      At the low tiers try to play conservatively. Stay in cover and learn to sight and shoot while stationary. Avoid close up contests if possible.

      Work on building lots of completed modules on future vehicles while leaving your crew to get experience in the one you are currently using. This means when you go to a new vehicle up through about tier 4 or 5 you can have the next vehicle already maxed out meaning your crew recovers experience faster and you get slaughtered less often.

      Work on getting used to the controls and shooting accurately.

      If you want some help my game name in WoT is Murotsu you can P/M me and I'll try and help. I have several Tier 2 "money makers" (I play entirely for free no buying gold) I use that I can platoon with you to help you get experience.

              Given that he is a beginner staying behind a bush won't help him much. He needs camouflage, camouflage net and the crew trained to be stealthy for passive scouting to work.

                My first two questions.

                1. Can you get gold without paying? How?
                2. What is the best nationality to work on?

                I currently have a Vickers tier 1 that I am working from. Are Russian or German better than British?

                  Russians tend to have best gun amour combination.British/French for arty in low tiers.Low tier French Chinese Japanese tanks crap.US German good but patchy.Gold has to be purchased,apart from infrequent in game rewards,L only use it for crew training and permanent camouflage.

                    1. Can you get gold without paying? How?
                    Mostly by luck. Occasionally one of their "pros" shows up in a game kill him get gold. Sometimes they run contests that will get it. I've made about 1000 gold that way and I play entirely for free.


                    2. What is the best nationality to work on?
                    Depends on your style.

                    I currently have a Vickers tier 1 that I am working from. Are Russian or German better than British?
                    Yes, the British line is not that good. The Russians are good except in observation. You tend to blunder into enemies with them. The US and Germans have the best observation. Gun wise the Germans and Russians are the two to go for.
                    Armor, the Russians first. The US and Germans at higher tiers are get good.

                    French is so-so at best. Chinese, Japanese are best left on the side lines.

                        Cool.

                        So it looks like I'll use my Vickers to make some cash, since it is already upgraded, and upgrade to the Russian tanks after that.

                          I have added Murotsu and another non-ACG friend. Anyone else want to add to friends list?

                            I tried to platoon (eg., play with) you today several times unsuccessfully. I have Tier II and IV vehicles so I can play low tier games (the tier II are money makers).
