    Thread: World of tanks

    1. 02-08-2012 09:58 PM #76
      I got sucked up into a pirate MMO, so I haven't touched this in a while - and my buddies didn't dig it (my casual gaming group who's on nightly). I can't complain though, enjoyable for free.

      One year anniversary this weekend. This game is getting lots of updates and new content. We got new American tanks last week, and there will be new soviet tanks coming out in about a month. I still play this pretty much every day.

      Anyone who hasn't tried this game yet, should. The players for the most part are 1000x more mature than the CoD crowd, and the game is tons of fun.

      Also, if you are on reddit, we have a gigantic reddit clan(~500 people). It's a mostly social clan where we can all platoon up, run games together, and have a good time.

      I forgot I even had it on my PC...building a new PC this weekend, and I don't think I'll be adding it again. Slowly lost interest. It was not bad for a free game though. I just wanted a lot more sim and less arcade in a tank game.

      A few Reddit WoT players are in the alpha, their initial impressions with it are "meh". It's only alpha though, so it's a long ways away from a finished product.

      That being said, I'm 1000x more excited for World of Battleships.

      Seems like a knock-off of IL2 Sturmovik: 1946.

      Well, it looks great. I think it will eventually be a pretty good game. I don't have a joystick, so I use my wired 360 controller. Only problem is, the game has terrible gamepad support at the moment. So I haven't been able to play more than a couple games without getting tired of the controller not working right.

      I'm sure they'll iron that out soon though, as there is a lot of people complaining about it.

      No no no. Mouse and keyboard is the way to play WoT. I only use it in WoWP because flying an aircraft with mouse and keyboard it terrible.

      The thing is that they basically release free DLC for the game every month or two. I threw down the cost of a normal game($60) and have 2 months of premium left.

      By then I will have my E-100, Bat Chat, and Gw Type E... and wont need premium anymore. Once I have those, I won't mind the slow grind of a non-premium account.

      If I really needed it, I wouldn't have any problem with spending another $40-$50 on this game with all the free content they constantly add to it.

      if the UI wasn't so confusing i could get into this game a lot more. I like the gameplay, but i find the menus to upgrade very confusing.

      It's pretty simple. You click the research tab to research parts(11)... Then you click the panel on the bottom to buy/equip those researched parts(19). Done.

      It's not JUST the research. It's cluttered, not very elegant, and confusing. But continue to tell me my opinion is wrong.

      I tried installing and playing the game, but I keep getting some error that won't let me play once the game is installed. Is it because you need to be invited into the testing stages of the game or something?

      Yeah it's not in beta, anyone can play. What's the error message?
