Some have found that even after completing all the tutorials, they still aren’t able to join an online match. It would seem the issue lies in the vehicle you have selected for use.

This means, players will need to go ahead and research their first vehicle and equip it before heading into multiplayer. After doing so, you should have no trouble diving headfirst into the battlefield that is War Thunder.
