So in the new patch they introduced a feature called "Proving Grounds" for newbs to learn basics. Their past tutorials were never that good and this is their latest attempt. In order to get people to try, they are having a sort of sweepstakes for a Type 59 and other goodies. Just play it, kill 5 bot tanks and post a screenshot

Lots of changes coming. The improved physics looks cool and possible for creating some hilarious moments.

I gotta say, the total reworking of sounds in the game is amazing.

Not quite sure about the physics yet. The handbrake thing doesn't feel realistic to me, seems too easy to pull a fishtail even when not going fast. Seems like there should be a minimum speed before the slide can start and just acts as a brake otherwise.

So, HPD, you said that you can't see some of the videos in this thread, but they are working for me, and I think it is because this site is using a flashplayer to play the YouTube videos and your browser doesn't support it. If you right click on the video and copy the video link you should be able to paste it outside the forum on a separate page and watch the video.

You can't go wrong subscribing to QuickyBaby's Youtube channel. He gives out good tactics and strategies during his videos all the time and he reiterates basic game mechanics a lot also, he doesn't assume all his viewers are Tier 10 driving Clan members.

So there are two ongoing missions for stuff, the impossible one is:
http://worldoftanks.com/en/news/pc-browser/22/t-44-100-marathon/
The goals for this are ponderous. As much as I would love a T-44-100, I just can't play that much to get it.

The attainable one is:
http://worldoftanks.com/en/news/pc-browser/18/tank-rewards-sept/
Just because it's an incremental one with small prizes if you can only do so much.

I just got the crusader, the t-28, and the first SU tank destroyer tier 3 I think. I had a taste of preferential matchmaking with the,SU. I was top tank and 3rd in 2 separate battles. The premium tanks get preferential matchmaking usuu ally don't they?

I could prob survive without premiums, but I'd like free garage slots.

Any free gold out there?

Getting top tier in a battle isn't the same as preferential matchmaking.  PM is when a premium tank will never see more that +1 tiers higher than it in battle.  Unless it platoons with a tank that doesn't get preferential matchmaking.  That means it is more likely to get top tier. Regular tanks can get and do get top tier in a battle, but your position in the list on the team is a combination of your tier and your class. It sorts the list with this criteria:

1) Rank by Tier
2) Then, within Tiers rank by class (Heavies on top, lights on the bottom and others in an order I don't remember.

The important thing is that battles where there are no tanks of a higher tier than you, you are at an advantage against most of the enemy tanks.  That means lots of damage and kills if you play it well.  It also means you are one of the more important tanks on the team and you need to pull your weight in order for to win.  There is less room for slacking and goofing around.  If you do something dumb, you are more likely to get insults.

P.S. Only some premium tanks get preferential matchmaking and Wargaming has said they aren't going to make any new ones with it.  I think it occasionally gives their matchmaking algorithms fits when it tries to fill out a battle.

I remember u making fun of a heart y when we were platoon I ng so when I'm top tier I push the front. I've been playing smarter since watching the videos this past week too, so maybe a tank destroyer would be fun.

The object is Frick in huge! I played with a couple and my light tank was like a compact car to a garbage truck or a small building. Haha.

Yeah that battle where I was top tier I killed 4 or 5. N OT enough for top gun, but I one shot ted a couple of tanks. Pretty fun. So I see the draw of the premiums.

I need to print out those maps so I can see where I'm supposed to go while I'm loading.

The changes coming in 9.16. Looks like they have built in everything I use from the XVM mod so i won't need it anymore.

Pretty cool changes coming, including to matchmaker, should reduce some of the frustration:
