Did you just start playing World of Tanks? This week? Yesterday? An hour ago? Maybe you're downloading it right now? Regardless, we're glad to have you, and we're here to help. If you find yourself entering battle and getting pulverized, we get it -- nobody starts as an expert. World of Tanks is super fun, but it works a bit differently than your average action game. Understanding the difference isn't hard, but not always obvious. That's why we've created Newcomer Central: a curation of the best gameplay advice for entry-level players.
If you're new, then keep this page handy as you begin your fledgling tank career.
