Best tier for learning gameplay fundamentals

I want to learn the fundamentals of good quality gameplay in the most efficient way possible.  I want to git gud.

 

As a player of world of tanks blitz, my advice to new players was to:

grind many lines to tier v to experience the different tanks types and nation flavours,

then play 100+ games in classic tanks (like kv-1, stug, m4) untill you really understand the basics of their playstyle.

After that experince, then consider taking one line to higher tiers, while really focusing on “gittin gud”.

Tier v offered solid gameplay dynamics without the random newbie behaviour of lower tiers or the ruthless punishment of mistakes at high tiers.

 

In world of warships, does tier v also offer the same opportunity to learn gameplay fundamentals?  If not, what tier would you recommend for learning gameplay basics?

T4 & 5 is great to experience & refine your skills, however be aware that T5 can be up tiered to T7 at times, where you get to experience tougher ships & higher gameplay...

T4 is when you start experiencing carriers (CVs)... So watch out for them.... There are videos around to help you learn to avoid torpedoes & things too....

& also when you get sunk, you can always click the mouse button or space bar & you'll zoom in to another ship like a passenger, so you can watch how they play as well... 

Choose the ships you want to play most, & then look on YouTube for videos on that ship, also there a great series of videos made by WARGAMING about different aspects of the game mechanics (ie. How armour works, how shells do damage etc), it would be very beneficial to watch those as well.... You should be able to find them on you tube as well...

Play around with different classes & nations a bit too, then you'll get the general feeling on how they play, which will help you learn how to fight them...

The number one rule (apart from not Team Killing your teams ships), is to have fun.... If you find your getting angry or having a losing streak, then hop off the computer for a time then jump back on fresh....  It will help prevent you getting burnt out & frustrated...

& you can always Div up with others, & don't be shy on asking questions & being observant..

There's different modes of play too, like co-op where you fight bot ships, then theres random, where all the players are, or scenarios where you join a group of people for missions, a training room where you can practice your own weaponry, etc... & of course clan wars (later for when you eventually get T10 if you join a clan)

There's a lot to look at & do....

 

Have fun & see you out there....

Yeah I reckon you got it about right.

At T6 you start meeting T8 and they have concealment expert so not only are they stronger they also stealthier. So sticking to T5 avoids that.

G'Day Mate,

I reckon Tier 4 is ideal for your goals. The narrow match making spread and exposure to all ship types provide a consistent battle experience. There is a good variety of skill levels without the ŕancour that becomes increasing prevalent as one advances up the tiers.

Play a few tier 5 battles interspersed with tier 4 as your confidence builds.

You already have a Gud approach. Use these these tiers to consolidate your skills.

Cheers

That’s great feedback, thanks.  I’ll aim to spend a lot of time at tier 4 across all classes and nations.

 

To confirm: are the distinctive national flavours apparent at tier 4?

Well, I read the previous posts. I'm not sure I agree.

I think you are OK to learn destroyer basics at low tiers, to a degree battleship basics. 

Lower tier cruisers are floating citadels stuck together with petrol soaked rags, as a well-known Youtuber says. Higher tier cruisers play quite differently.

Also the low tier BB's are rather slow... which isn't bad to learn foresight and positioning.

The games changes as you move up the tiers. Play a lot of low tier games and you will get good there. But move up to higher tiers and what worked great at T4 may not work at T8. Keep in mind, it is very helpful to know the strengths and weaknesses of your ships and all other ships on your and the enemy team. If you move up a tier or two, you will see all those ships you don't know.

Very important, learn from others. Watch videos or life-streams. If you have a problem with a particular ship, tier or strategy, ask in the forum.

T5-6 yolo, aiming contest (everything are not logical here)
T8-9 how to survive from CV, more team play
T10 how to camp (many players use free XP research to T10 but they are play like T5-6)

im not suggest to play T7 because T7 and T8 ship has huge performance different cause upgrade slot

I often find I enjoy the lower-tier battles more than the higher-tier ones. Less stress is a big part of it.

T7 i think is a good middle ground, ships at T7 are starting to exhibit more of the traits found at higher tiers but you can still get away with making some mistakes. Sure you'll get uptiered sometimes but that is good for learning too, you'll get to see some of the capabilities of high tier ships without having to fight them every game. T7 is also still a tier that is easily profitable for credit earning since you'll need a lot of those if you want to buy and fit out higher tier ships. Personally I think T5 is too low, you can get away with some crazy yolo moves there which definitely wont help you when you move to higher tiers. If you really want to learn the game well its best to find some decent players to division with. Not only will they be able to coordinate and support you in battle but they can also give you tips and tactics in game and critique your performance. I wouldn't consider myself an amazing player but I do ok. feel free to add me to your in-game contacts and pm me if you'd like to div.

I’ve been playing a lot of tier 4 lately and i think i am learning the fundamentals.  I got my first kraken tonight in the tier iv german bb.

 

i still have a long way to go, but i plan on pushing up a few tiers.  Probably to tier 7.  I’d like to experience higher tier gameplay.

 

I’ve been playing lots of different lines and nations and i am starting to get a feel for my playstyle.

 

Thanks for eveyones help.

Persoonally I do think T5 / T6 is good place to learn , you start to see characteristics playing a part in all ships (long range torp in IJN DD , heavy secondaries in German and Fench BB , OP fire chance with the RN BB, Tanking by US BB etc etc ) without going over thee top ; yo will also play over / under tier all the way to T8 which give you a taste of how its like at top tier without being too intimidating as playing T8 undertiered in a T10 game. In short it deliver all the elements but still remain friendly and forgiving. It will penalize bad game play but its not going to be like always over the top one shoted
