Missions are what you need, I think.

must be. I've played at least a dozen games today and still haven't got any.

 

Wanna hear a funny story? playing in a HT, I saw the red outline of what looked like one of those Strv 74A2 things. I'll take that no worries, I thought, and didn't bother to seek cover. turns out it was a T 69.! (similar profile) Big mistakel! one I won't be making again, lol

Dont you have the marker settings turned on so that it tells you what tank you are facing?

I got a Christmas bauble avatar in a small free loot box today. Not overly enthusiastic about them so far...

By the sound of it, probably not.

Also to figure out which tank silhouette is which you have to be pretty nitpicky and privy on the details. I don't think Destroyer is one of those guys.

I didn't know there was another tank that looked like the Strav. there's a lot of tanks to beome familiar with in this game

Well there's the T57 Heavy line, the AMX 50 120 line, and the Bat-Chat 25t line that uses the oscillating turret design like Strv 74A2

You need to start learning what tanks look like, especially now that you're in Tier 5 and above. Tactics can change when dealing even with the same model of tank if different modules or guns are installed; for example, KV-1S with the stock turret and 76mm is generally of little threat, but the one using the big rounded turret and big 122mm gun is a different can of worms altogether and is way more dangerous.

I have the KV-1S with that gun, but the slow reload turns me off. my favourite heavy is the Churchill 3. current winrate with it is 63.46% over 52 games

I got 2 avatars so far. Both of them are common, one is silver snowflake (I guess) and the other a blue thing held on with a golden thingy

I quickly logged in just to open crates and got the Blitz avatar from the big crate - it only lasts 12hrs though so what really is the point in all this? Am I supposed to love it so much they I spend money to buy it permanently?

as a new player, who has yet to get a single credit booster which is what I actually need, getting a useless avatar in free crate, just is annoying, no use, WG just put it there to reduce even lower the probability of getting anything useful from crates? was the tier 3 premium tanks removed from Big container in this update or earlier?
