    You don't need to wait. After your tank is destroyed you can exit the battle, get into another tank and play another battle. After your first battle is over you will gain experience and credits automatically

    Very different. SPG's and tank destroyers obviously have a limited arc of fire unless you rotate the entire vehicle. You can run circles around them in a light tank.

    Also with an SPG you really need to have light tanks with a decent radio rushing around lighting up targets on the map.

    Once you have everything researched, the research button will change to exchange, then you just use the slider. It costs gold to do it though.

    SPG's use a top down view once you go in to target mode, you can't actually get out of the view once your in it. TD's were my favorite until I hit the Hetzer.

    SPGs are for ******s.

    TDs are pretty fun but you really get screwed over easily if no one if watching your back. I'm at the Jagd Panzer right now and like it, the only problem is if I die, I usually come out with only 3-4k profit in credits after the costs of repairs and ammo ($250 per round). I need a million credits to buy the Jagd Panther so I just play with my stug, and do recruit battles with my badass P35t fo the moneyz.

    Well I can one-shot every SPG so if I ever get LOS of them they are ****ed. But when I was playing with my lower-tier tanks the asses would always bombard me constantly and take out my tracks.

    I've gotten 150 gold every day since I started. You can exchange gold for credits and use gold to buy tanks, special ammo, and so on.

    Press Shift.

    Shift also switches quickly to zoomed in mode on tanks.

    My fav non tier 3 light tank at the moment is the BT-2 with 45mm gun. My crews pretty highly trained so I can hit enemy from some distance using it. I more often then not use it as a very quick to reposition defensive tank destroyer when loaded with the gold ammo. It has such poor radio range that I don't think its a great scout apart from its speed.
