Finally, we got tanks. After months of beta game was released and it's pretty addictive. Ask me for example... :)
First thing you should do is to go on official site.... www.worldoftanks.com or www.worldoftanks.eu depending on your location. I was registered on US server so I had to change it on European and start over, so be careful when you are entering. All of you who played beta version, you know almost everything except now... you get no gold of course. It will be hard to match up with guys with premium account but patience is the key.
There are 3 country to choose from and 9/10 tiers of thanks, you can research each one and buy parts to improve performance. Also joining clans is also a good thing, as you may play companies and platoons and soon enough wars.
