Me too: bought gold a couple of times and it all went through instantly.
Sorry you're having problems with it.
I find it frustrating in the game that after almost every match, I get disconnected from the server and have to reconnect. Once or twice a session I could forgive, but it's wearing when it's seven or eight.
It's also galling that I'm still really rubbish at the game...(Can't use a light tank to save my life.)
I'm more comfortable with tank destroyers and heavies.
But does anyone have any ideas on why it is that my win record with the Churchill I is only about 40%, when with the KV-1 it's over 60%? Does the Churchill have tougher matchmaking, as it's nominally a stronger tank?
It's really beginning to tick me off...
(Mostly because, as I say, I'm rubbish. And I want to be good at it.)

What, from here?
With these feet?
Tier 2 T18 for 1 shotting fun with good frontal armour and speed.
Most tier 3 tanks are fine. I like my T-127 and Cruiser IV a lot.
At tier 4 I've not found any tanks that I really like playing in this tier.
Tier 5. KV-1 is good and beginner friendly. M4 is wicked with derp gun and premium ammo. The tier 5 lights are for more advanced players and are great for fast paced fun.
Tier 6. KV1-s will 1 or 2 shot lots of tanks. KV-2 is great for taking on tier 8's.
Tier 7. I like my KV-3 a lot. T29 is good and has a hard nut turret.
Tier 8. Lots of equally good but different tanks.
Tier 9. T54 is a lot of fun. AMX 50 120 has a wicked gun.
Tier 10. Bat Chat is the current darling of Clan wars, with T110E5's and IS7's.
Thanks Lindsayt - only just spotted this advice.
You may have half answered my KV-1/Churchill question: beginner friendly. I'm forever being called a 'noob' in game.
I rushed through the T18 and then binned it. Might reinvest to cash in on the elite status.
I'm on tier IV and V now really. I've 'unlocked' the Hellcat (Tier VI) but can't afford it yet.
Tactics for the different types are interesting. I find it really hard to know what to do with a light tank: I need a bit more armour and firepower. I'm not good enough at keeping moving.
Managed to eventually get my gold through Paypal. Had to re-apply for it so that the transaction would go through. Strange...
I also have the Churchill tank and have not got on that well with it so far. I much prefer the Matilda tier IV.
Not sure whether to carry on the tech -tree (British) with the light tanks in tier V and above. I don't really want another Churchill.
Also I always never use the wireless now for playing and I don't get any drop-outs playing with the cable straight into the router - works much better for me with better ping than wireless. So if you are having any drop-outs use a cable instead.
Now with the update 8.6 - I've found the audio to be much better in the game.

So far :)
Poor comparison, completely different game.
Still enjoying WOT. I've now got a few more tanks - such as the KV1, Churchill Guncarrier, Japanese line up to tier V as well. I still enjoy playing tier 3 or 4 most of all though. The Tier IV Japanese tank Chi-He is quite good (similar to T-28 .
Although people seem to like the Cromwell, I'm not overly keen - as the front turret is still square, guns not good enough for tier VI playing and above, not particularly fast or quick to change direction, poor armour.
Just got the 85mm gun for the KV1 with the better turret, just need to get a decent radio, and diesel engine.
What are peoples favourite tanks in the game?
