So yes, I think WoT is more consistent, but I do think the inconsistencies in WT make it feel more realistic, if more frustrating. One of my biggest issues to overcome in WT is accurate spotting. I'll get a good eyeball on an enemy but by the time I'm able to line up for a shot he's got 2 rounds headed my direction. I am getting better at firing on the move and using cover though. My other issue is handling the tank to avoid the dreaded tailslide when turning. All in all I am kind of in love with this game though. Glad I listened to you and gave it a 2nd chance.
I suggest you get your eye used to the sizes of different tanks at different ranges, and once you're reasonably good at it, give realistic a go. Then when you are used to the harsher sailing in realistinc, try simulator. Simulator can be quite challenging but fun. They were testing a full-sim (no UI, sim pilots flying overhead, bombing and dogfighting) mode some time ago, it probably will end up being introduced as a full-time battlemode.
Added you as an ingame friend, if I'm online and I see you I'll text you. I'm a bit higher than you though (Panther A, JagdPanther, Tiger II (P)), but I have been on a break from WT in favour of WoT for a while, so...
There is no kill like overkill.
