    Planning on getting into WoT soon since its pretty popular here on GO. Was wondering if any Veteran players could give me some tips? And is there a clan in-game for GO players?

    well there's no GO clan but nothing stops us from playing together regardless of clans, that's what platoons and tank companies are for. The only thing that could stop you is if you play on USA server, you won't be able to play with rest of us that are on the EU server. On the other hand, if play on EU server from USA, you're likely to have high ping

    As for beginner tips...

    Tip number 1 - WoT is a team game, there's no heroes, games are played 15 vs 15 and if you try to play a hero, well you're likely to end up as a burning tank.

    Tip number 2 - Learn your tanks. The game features about 200+ tanks at the moment, and each of them has its strengths and weaknesses, if you play a tank by its strength you'll be effective. If you try to play every tank the same, you'll end up as a burning tank.

    Tip 3 - do not rush through tiers. One of the worst things in this game is amount of noobs in high tier games that are not noobs cause of themselves being stupid, but rather cause them rushing to get to high tier tanks ASAP, resulting in them getting the said tanks and having no clue how to play them. So use lower tiers to learn about the game and use them well before advancing further up.

    Tip 4 - if you don't buy a premium account or a high tier premium tank, keep a few tanks on tier 5 as that is the tier that earns credits best on non premium accounts. Tiers above 7th can actually lose cash in battle and without a premium account, that's actually quite a normal occurrence on the final tiers.

    Tip 5 - Use WoT wiki and read this Battle Mechanics - World Of Tanks at least twice

    Tip 6 - try to find an invite code before you create your account. There are several different types of invite codes, one of which even having a giveway here, each giving you either a bit of gold, a premium account for a few days and sometimes a low tier premium tank. These codes pretty much give you about 10$ worth of premium items, and are not exactly needed to play the game, but they could give you a nice headstart

    that's all I could think of right now. Good luck :)
