Greetings! I am a former tanker (M1A1) after splitting 8 years between the broken TV and Chief Soju I got out in '05. I had purchased the original Steel Beasts at the PX years ago, wanted to pick up the PRO PE for a while but the CodeMeter thing kinda turned me off, but I recently noticed the limited time license so I just picked up a 4 month one. Being the bad ass tanker I once was I figured I needed no tutorials and during my first "Instant Action" I became incredibly frustrated with my inability to dump lead - I then humbly went through the tutorials for the M1A1... I want to eventually take part in multi-player, though probably not tonight (well morning my time, yes admins my IP address is indeed correct, I do in fact live in Saint Petersburg, Russia.) My main questions are: What utilities/files do I need to get that will make it possible for me to take part. The basic and obvious stuff I have already (Teamspeak client) just not sure if I need certain mods or mission files or something I don't even know about. I did search the forum, but I became a bit confused as results greatly varied in years so I was not sure if some data was current with 3.023. Another question would be, what tank(s) do I need to become familiar with? Other than an M1A1 I know next to nothing about operating other tanks. Basically I want to know how to make the best out of the next 4 months to decide if I should extend my license. I'm already impressed with the single player though, as with most milsims, I'm sure the strength is in organized multiplayer. Also, while I can't promise it will be timely due to real life, I don't know how many Russian speakers are on this forum, but if someone needs a translation of something - manual, book, video I'm willing to help. If this thread broke any forum etiquette, please accept my appology.
