By tier 10 you will be wanting more end game content in the form of advances/ clan wars/ campiagns

100% focus on Soviet Line. IS7 will always be relevant in the game and currently one of the best tanks in pubs and clan wars. The whole line leading up to it is very player friendly. Also would recommend doing the medium line at the same time for the soviets as you can pick up 3x tier 10 meds pretty cheaply xp wise.

The italian tanks post tier7 are very very good pub stompers. Not recommended for clan wars. 

UK heavy line is also good as it teaches you to make use of hull downs and ridgelines effectively 

 

Feel free to message me ingame for plats, even low tier as I wish someone had shown me a few things when I started playing.

Heaps of others have made recommendations, they are all valid. I'll post some context to help you on your journey. And well done for getting to the forums so early in the WoT career, this will help you more than any tank will!

 

You have to understand that there is no line in the entire game which is noob friendly. No tank will cover shortfalls in understanding you have as a tank commander. This is why you see top tier tanks getting hardly any damage and losing over and over. Each improvement in any tank as you uptier will face enemy tanks with similar improvements.

 

You need to understand vision/camo mechanics, armour and penetration mechanics. Yes there are some tank lines which are easier, but that is it.

 

A bad tank commander in the best tank will pretty much always be beaten by a good commander in a "bad" tank.

 

As you work up through the tiers you will face better and better players who have a more thorough knowledge of the game. Often they will be playing their favourite tanks, they know the maps well. Don't make the mistake of rushing up to high tiers in the hope that a higher tier tank will help you win. 

 

Avoid gimmick tanks like the Swedish TDs. They will encourage you to play in a particular way which will not help you overall. This game is won by knowing game mechanics and being aggressive in a sensible manner. Its that simple.

 

I'd thoroughly recommend a Russian HT or MT as the first lines to go up. They will teach you good general play and how to be successfully aggressive. You will get TX tanks which are useful in team battles. US tanks would also be a reasonable choice.

 I highly disagree. learning to play on the is7 line with only a few tips is by far the easiest way to start.

You think the tank makes all the difference? Most interesting.....

 

I have seen a large number of IS7 players with <45% WR in it.
