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.
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.
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.
