How to understand the game's parts and gameplay:
This page will try to make sense on how to get in the game, specifically for the Chinese version.
Installation and Registration
- Go to Google Play Store and install the app. It's current size is less than 50 MB (Direct download).
- After installation, open the game and download all necessary data. You should be led to a black screen with white texts; you can tell that the app's data are downloading when numbers and percentage appear between Chinese characters/words. (So if you don't see any numbers and only Chinese characters, restart your app and try again until they appear.). Depending on your device and signal, the download might take long so it's recommended you use a strong and/or continuous Wi-Fi network. Currently, the total size of the app should be more or less 346 MB.
- Once the download is finished, you will be led to the game's screen.

The gameplay is about recruiting tank girls(or metal maidens) and sending them to battles to fight enemy tanks or other players. They possess stats which players need to upgrade to make them stronger, either by making them fight and gain EXP or changing their equipment (i.e. engine, tracks, armor, and ammunition).
Combat works by building a squad of tank girls (a maximum of 5 or even 6) and sending on missions or locations where they fight automatically in levels divided into different stages. You can send only one squad in one level. During the battle, there is distance between you and the enemy, it's matter of taking each other out first before you get close. Players have the option to watch them fight or skip them (which is only allowed on a level you already cleared). Important to note however is that tank girls lose stamina each time they fight. So if you use the same girl/s too much, that girl won't be able to fight or even die. Stamina can be regained either by giving them Milk to drink or not using them for a while. PVP is an exception - you can use the same girl/s everytime without them losing of stamina. Also keep in mind that you need Fuel to go on missions. (For campaign and events you need green Fuel; orange Fuel is for PVPs only)
Each tank girl is based on real-life tanks and armored vehicles; and are divided into different classes. It is a good tactic to assemble an effective squad by using these types(ex. having at least one artillery-class girl in a squad, or having a squad made up of only armored vehicles who are only good at close range but have high speed to evade enemy attacks). Try experimenting with a variety of tactics.
Besides fighting, tank girls can gain EXP when you give them food or by sacrificing other tank girls. Also, to recruit new tank girls you need to fight in different levels to get them or gather at least 120 Ores and get one at the store (but you may not succeed). Another way is to get one is by obtaining a certain amount of items and a set of tank girls which will eventually unlock other tank girls via the Gallery section.
Other things to do include building and upgrading structures to get more resources, and upgrading your tech tree to get more powerful weapons.
