Only one worth keeping now is the A-32



They are all good, once you learn how to best use them. I didn't always think so, only one I liked was the Pz. 38H but that is down to being easy to understand, was so much fun when people got the T7 car. recently.

A-32 suffers a bit from low pen atm so depends on your team keeping the reds busy. Pz.38H bounces shots like crazy (I've had 200+ bounce games), Locust shines once the battle lines form up due to good RoF and speed to get out when they notice you. A-32 makes tanks go boom and then runs to a new spot.

Was a good purchase as I had only been playing a few months.

I've not been playing long (~1200 battles) but I wish I had saved my free gold/container gold up to buy a premium tank rather than used it for free xp conversion and other frivolous things.

Premium Time is always useful. Up to you, if you have patience, you can grind slower. Creditwise you can play up to tier 7 without any problem if you dont want to pay real money.


First 15 days are a gift in Prem time anyway, so you can find out if it is necessary for you.


Prem Tanks: Nothing over tier 5 please, it gets difficult up there and you won't have much fun.


T25, Matilda BP, and Churchill III are very good tanks for beginner


If you feel the deed, to collect the tanks you finished grinding, you should buy garage slots too. This weekend is perfect for that, because of the discount. everything else is not important in the beginning.

Firstly try not to speed up the tiers too fast.  Play at least 50-100 games on each tank, it will improve your skill, teach you the game and earn you credits (you probably won't listen to that because we all have raced up the tiers in the beginning).  Spare slots is a good idea as you will want to keep certain tanks as you progress.  Premium time is nice but not essential.  Seriously consider a premium tank as this will earn you more credits.  Research your chosen premium before you buy and learn to use it well.  It's not about the kills just get as much damage on your target as you can.  Good luck.

Defiantly garage space, crew skills and free EXP converting.

Tech tree premiums tanks are gifted anyway in containers so now buy them when there is a sale or buy special tanks being sold in the store.

I really would not recommend new players to spend money on free XP or crew skills. That will come and offer no value for money, imho, particularly for new players.

Premiums can be worth it, but it would be better to know what tanks suit you, are there better normal tanks and so on to make sure you are making the right investment, but they are fun and everyone likes that new tank smell.

Premium tanks (II-V), and premium time.

Definitely go with Premium tanks - I started a new account hoping they repeat the half price premiums again; I've already got 1450 Gold only playing 2 or 3 games on it.  If they drop the Tier Vs to half price again like they did a month or so ago I'm going to get myself a shiny Tier V for mucking about in without worrying about stats.
