You'll want TeamSpeak 3 beta, either 16 or 32 bit.
It's easy to set up. To get it to work with my headset, I found I had to plug in the headset (USB), then start WoT or restart it, then TS. Go into WoT's settings for sound and adjust.
If you've joined a clan, you'll now get a Clan 'lobby' where you can ask for the TS settings, IP, port and password. Or PM me for the info.
WoT can be a 'grind' working your way up, but with all the variations of units within a game, such as no artillery, 1 artillery or 4?; are you at the top of the' food chain' tier?, the middle or bottom; does the map favor your unit type? It's never static and you have to adjust your game play accordingly.
There's two basic ways of winning a match - kill all the opponents or cap the flag. Next will be Clan wars.
Strongly recommend that you either form a platoon (up to 3) if you have a premium account ($) or join a platoon (no premium account required). I found you tend to win more matches with platoons then solo and TS makes a huge difference. The game does have in-chat mode but seems to be spotty. It also has an in-text mode as well.
