I'm not very new and I still get killed a lot

Love this game and glad you're enjoying it too.

Someone has a hotfix posted above my post on how to stop the CTDs. The hotfix creates a backup .exe file that you have to rename to what the current exe file is (ww2.exe I believe).

Works wonders.

Welcome to BE

YEs a steep learning curve this game has for sure.

I remember when my friend came into the game for the first time all i got on his chat to me was.

"Ah what shot me"

"Hey were is that fire coming from?"

"I'm dead again"

As you learn how the game works, when you start recognizing the different sounds of weapon fire and vehicles you can start working out whats coming from where and if its friend or foe.

If you get a full account you can rank up and get Binoculars which really helps.

Best 2 bits of advice are.

Never stay in the same place shooting. the second you fire your weapon, you advertise to every nearby enemy unit where you are.

Keep your back to cover when possible, don't run aimlessly in the open. listen and look.

the rest will come with time .

ask questions often.

Love the game too. Free play lured me in and within two days i did the 1 month subscription to get a better feel for the game to decide if I wanna do a 6month sub or not.

I always said, it doesnt matter if I'm sitting in a bush for hours. It's still rewarding to play as part of a team.

welcome new guys, lots to learn but this is a "meat and potatoes" game not "candy floss".
It has a lot of substance. Fortunately there are a lot of different types of "meat" and "cuts" and even "potatoes". That's why people continue to play and return again and again.
Salute!
