Have two questions and have been searching the game info sites, but haven't found the answers. Would appreciate some help.

 

At the start of each game we see the list of players, both green and red. Could someone explain what the details to the side of each name mean?

 

Above - after Tyler Belfower for example, the bracketed [WRC2] is their platoon or clan?

Also, why are some players list with a long number after the word Player_12345678, etc. What's with that?

 

Next question: In the picture below, what do the little wreaths mean around the tanks mean?

I realize one is for premium, the other non-P.

And the one on the left, the gold banner with the star/wing thing, what's that one?

 

 

Thanks again, I'm sure I'll feel stupid once someone explains this to me.

[Brackets] Are clan names.

 

Player_########## is someone who either couldn't be bothered to make a name and just wanted to start licking the screen while driving tanks or a reroll player who wanted a screen licker name to be ironic when the play all 1337 against nublets.

When the tank indicator is blue, it means it's a TD.

 

They are arranged alphabetically, so don't think the top person is special.

 

The buttons on the bottom...

 

From left to right:

 

Left - Tank celebrating 3 month anniversary.  You get a multipler on XP/Credits on a win.

Silver Tank is a tank you're grinding in the tech tree.
Silver tank with the leaf stuff is a tech tree tank you've "elited" which means you have all the modules and the next tank on the tech tree researched.
Gold tank with leaf stuff is premium.

 

Hope that helps.

 

EDIT:  Platoons are indicated by little Flags after their names... and numbered if you have more than one, so you can tell who is together.

 Slight add on, They are arranged high tier alphabetically then low tier alphabetically.   

 

If someone tries to tell u "Im top so Im team captain"  ignore everything they say as they are a moron

 Thanks for all the helpful info. I saw something else on that upper pix. Top right list, the reds, there are two Leopards listed, one has brighter white lettering, the other gray. What's the diff?

The brighter white guy has already loaded into the battle and is now waiting on the rest of the players to load in, when they do they’re grey names change to white

 

 

Also good job asking a good legitimate game question that actually makes sense unlike ppl who come on here and complain about teams and the like, nice to see some newer players actually want to learn how to play

The white tank names mean that player has loaded in to the match, while a gray name means they're still in the same screen you were in at the time of the screenshot.

Thanks for the info, and the praise, I felt a little dumb asking, but it's been bothering me awhile. I've found the forums to be a blast. I learn a lot and also learn where to go for help, Ytube, etc. Cheers.

Can I ask another question about the in game replay screen?

In the pix below, it show in each upper corner a little white icon, a set of dice or two heads. What are those for?

 

 

I've also been trying to figure out how to share a replay on the forum. I'd like some advice, well, mainly, some good critique of what I'm doing correctly or just plain wrong. My last game, T25, was a win and I helped the team, and I felt good about it.. But reviewing it I see a few good moves, shots, etc, but I also see many mistakes I made. What I need to hear is what mistakes I'm not even seeing.

 

In lieu of the next round of game changes, lower tiers, etc, I've decided to concentrate on improving my skills and knowledge by playing these three tanks I enjoy. The DW2, Bromwell and the T-25. I enjoy the T25 even though it's not the most armored tank I have. Something about it just pleases me. I want to get better at using it's talents in the game. I'll worry about higher tiers when I'm ready and have a couple of thousand games under my belt. 

Thanks again.

Forums are a blast as long as you don’t troll or try to insult respected contributors. Glad to see some intelligent new posters, thanks for checking out the forums! Enjoy. :)

The dice mean Random battle, I think the two heads means Platoon? Or is it training room battle? Not sure.

Sharing replays here is hard. Either upload to YouTube and then link the video, or put it in google drive and link that. I think those are the best ways to do it. It’s good that you have already started to look at your gameplay and see how you can get better.
