About a year or so ago I transferred from console peasant to a PC elitist, got tired of the 360 limitations on WoT Console.  On console hooking up a mic was easy, and you just plugged it into the Xbox controller, or bluetoothed it to the PS3.  I have a mic for my PC, but my question is if it is just as simple, and just plug it into the proper jacks and you're good to go?  Or more complicated?  I'll mostly be dealing with using it with WoT and/or Discord.

Basically yes. Helps also to have a mouse with a convenient extra button for push to talk as well. Hot mic ing is a no no (where you leave mic on accidentally).

Generally people don't use mic on the PC version

 

Most also don't use English.. or language...


Noobs don't snipe because they are good at snipe; noobs snipe because they can't do anything else / People don't lose because they lemming; people lemming because they are losers

Do not confuse team strength with individual strength; a single enemy killed in a 1v3 is worth more than two enemies killed in a 4v2 / Lanchester's Square Law predicts in a 2v1, the side with 2 will end with 1.5 tanks remaining, so if you won with less than that remaining, you're actually noob, not pro

When you are not losing because you outnumber the enemy, your other flank is losing because they are outnumbered; it's just math

Law of mirror: When you are holding a 1v6 against the enemy, you own team is also getting 6v1 held by the enemy

Noob self-balancing theory: When you release a good tank, enough noobs will flood to play it, until the server stats become average again

Yes, it's usually just plug-and-play, like on the consoles. Sometimes you might need to install a driver depending on the microphone/headset that you have.

 

Tbh there's not really any point using a mic with random battles, no one else talks there. You'll want to join a clan and use something like Discord for actual voice interactions with other players.

OK I have a mouse with I think 5 buttons so I'll work on that.

I have always been mostly a solo player, even my time on console WoT since most people I knew only played FPS games.  I generally want to get better at the game, as well as put some fun into it, and try to later find people that I might be able to team up with in SEA as my work schedule allows, as well as working with people I know from the NA server.

Yeah for that kind of thing look into getting Discord and joining a WoT community there.

With such a small playerbase, expect a big difference in skill level. Which means most of players don't use mics. Or communication. And in most cases even thinking.

You can always apply to a clan, there are plenty of clans that will help you learn and a few clans that will take you backwards.

Maybe ask in the "Looking for clan" page of the clanwars section. Only COAF members can reply so you might find a clan to help you out.

 

You could also apply to our sub clan 2AR, we have our own TS and a very active TS community. It would be a start and could lead you onto better clans if you play well enough.

pm me if you like, or perhaps there are others here who can make a similar offer.

 

Cheers
