No transfer. Try joining a clan with an active discord for quick advice.

Hey, welcome to the game.

Your tanks (including premiums) are locked to the server you play on.

 

If you're looking for content creators, there's plenty of us on the ASIA server that would be more than happy to explain things to you.

Thanks for the response, just wondering I emailed support and they said when I go back to the States I’d still be able to play on the account, since it’s region locked I’d be playing in Asian servers with 200+ ping correct?

Zevens great, he's been around since day dot. Anfield is great too if you want to youtube him, as is my fave DezGamez for nicely blunt info.

Is there a type of tank you prefer playing? Or do you have a preferred game style?

 

Some streamers are better at explaining certain types of tanks, or have certain play styles that might be better for you to watch.

I don't play heavies much, but you might enjoy this YouTube video by TruVoodoo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POKr8fBJpes

 

TruVoodoo is a user-friendly streamer on Twitch (he hardly ever posts content on YouTube). But he explains what he's doing as he plays, which can be helpful.

 

If you want to see amazing skill in the game, I'd suggest watching Decha or CarryBarry on Twitch:

https://www.twitch.tv/decha__

https://www.twitch.tv/videos/478110852

 

It's not a matter of replicating their skill at this stage, but watch where they position their tanks on the map, and how they position their tanks vis-a-vis individual tanks.

 

Skill4ltu also occasionally plays heavy tanks. Look through his YouTube videos for heavy tank game play. As with Decha and CarryBarry, watch his positioning (both start of game and during game).

For instructional videos, LemmingRush used to post a number of instructional / helpful YouTube videos. You could check him out: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDg5ZA8P4RF77I-afTBJu5Q/videos

His most useful content was about a year ago, but look through his video collection for ones that you think might be useful.

Just past the totally noob stage myself , made MANY blunders being a noob , after realizing that this isnt just a normal game as in the skills , perks , upgrades etc are erned along the way

its easy to stuff up , and then i flooded these forums with questions .

My mistakes were and what You need to KNOW is you DONT have to play every tank in the tree . If playing  lower tiers let the bots do the work and go in and clean up after , the bots have a tank next to their name and if you enable names in settings you will see :bots name: to dots either end to know their bots .

 

Ii wanted the M4A1 (Sherman) U.S.A tech tree and thought i had to play the M3LEE to get it (But didnt)-(Just needed to research the particular module/s to go onto it) So found myself frustratingly playing this imo dumb tank .)

Also after u die hang around and spectate what other players are doing especially the ones in the tanks you want .

I also found myself after facing say a Hetzer a few times researching to get me one , so now i have scouts , meds , heavies  TD's but have yet to enjoy SPG's .

 

I now NEVER buy or get a tank until i check out Quickybabies YT channel , he has saved me lots of time , effort and money .

 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQWHq9e1hN268yjgYq-0hNw

 

Never rush to your death , this is something i still tend to to , as others are quite happy for you to take the hits and clean up the left overs , so sometimes your playing against your own team unfortunately .

I Like the game , didnt like Homefront , Steel hunter and havent any decent tier 8 tanks to give Frontline a good go .

 

Everybody here i have found have been really helpful to me , so in a nutshell , you dont need to play EVERY tank to get to your goal tank for instance im after the Italian  P44 Pantera , but as of yet only researched upto the tier V P43 and havent PLAYED any of the previous or the P43 , if you understand .

Dont rush to your death , spectate players in the tanks you r after . 

 

You will make plenty of mistakes but coming here will hopefully shorten your frustration o7
