Is that ok for a newbee?
What should i do next? Keep on playing this Tank or advance to the next Tiers?
I spent my gold as well. I quite enjoy my Tier II M2.

I like the new personal missions they have set up because it is initially easy to earn some good credits but the later ones involve platooning and for me I find it hard to set that up since I'm I tend to play in small installments.

3. Once you get the hang maybe buy one prem. tank. This will help train crews of that nationality and be a credit earner.
4. Try other nationality. Japan is the hardest.
5. Decide on type of tank you prefer and go that line.
6. Heavy - brawler, med- speed/armor, light speed scout, TD sniper, arty camper support.

Any question just ask. I have over 25k battles played and played many different tanks during that time.
Thanks for all that stuff. Meanwhile i fought some 600 battles. My ratio still sucks. I'm not patient enough, too aggressive and did not stick to one or two vehicles but drove the MS-1, T-26, AT-1, LoLTractor, Pz II, T-46, T-50, T-28
I also bought two premiums (T-127 and Su-85i) after i got a code from a friend. So thats 10 vehicles. Right now i'm on the missions for LT, MT and TD that give you female elite crew members.
That's quick money, even though you sometimes end up with Tier 7 in a Tier IV. Probably because i played in a Platoon...

OK. I'm on 5 now (only Soviet Tanks until now) but have the feeling that i should stick to it for a while. But then theres always another Tank that looks like fun. Played some 900 battles now.

I ground through the German TD line up to 10. I liked most of the vehicles but was very disappointed by the "Death Star" at the end. The WT 100 is a mess and so is the Tier 9 WT IV. It can't hide but has little armour. The WT IV has zero gun depression which is a major problem when you are thin skinned TD. The auto-loader on the 100 is fun but when you run out you might as well go get a coffee or beer while you reload.

In a Tier 10 match I would actually prefer the Tier 8 Rhm.

I'm working on getting a radio for my tier 2 M2. Then I'll save for a tier 3 British tank.
