That gets old real fast.

 

You wrote a valid review. I would like to point one thing out. I'm not so sure most people are afraid to get their tanks scratched. The game is fairly realistic in that a well placed enemy tank(s) can halt an advance. In real life who wants to be the tank to get blown up rushing into a well positioned enemy?

It indeed may frustrate some players, but I find it challenging. The "peek a boo" game, when it occur,  is a battle of wits (and reflexes) in that you try to get your opponent to make a mistake while you try to avoid making a mistake.

I do concede that some players just want you to do all the work. It happens.

Also the game is borderline Pay 2 Win. You need a prem account if you want to play anything past Tier 6 and with the matchmaking you need to rise through the tiers just in order to stand a chance with the broken matchmaking system.

"the game is borderline Pay 2 Win", I must disagree with your inclusion of the word "borderline". Other then that I agree!

2. protecting their artillery!
3. moving/attacking in groups!

4. And yes, -NOT- being in a insane hurry. Timer almost -NEVER- runs out, people are in such a mad rush always (to die).

While I do agree than you CAN kill a heavy with a med, it always feel that you have to use all your skills to just to kill it while being a heavy simplifies it allowing you to kill not only this tank, but lots of others as well.

Also there is not many places where you can use the speed advantage of med tank, other than taking some hills or strategic spots (just to have you killed there by enemy heavy tanks coz your team was afraid to support you with fire).

Before the teleporta fix medium could utilize its speed to avoid (literally) shot and only skilled players could hit it thus allowing flanking, manevouring and medium tank rushing herd of death. While TD drivers were happy to have this fixed, medium tanks died out as a class until the T9 meds were added to the game. All they (meds) got was an increase in hp (lol) and those cheating T9 tanks(which in terms of goodness and balancer are T10), which wasnt fun for T8- tiers.

Its fairly realistic to have your tanks supported by infantry and vica versa, it also fairly realistic to not to attack unless you have clear advantage or forced to do so (15vs15...). Add to that realism of flanking manevours which allowed weaker tanks to destroy more powerfull and armored enemies (not just chip some hp and get blown to pieces like some shit stepped on). Frontal armor of german (not only) heavy tanks which allowed to dig in and use their accurate cannon to block some road and kill enemies from afar without having to worry about anything (other than flanking attacks and enemy planes) unless direct hit by some 150+mm artillery gun torn off the turret (which wasnt very effective as counter battery fire would put it out before it get a lucky shot (not having direct view of the target that is (or *cough* *cough* GPS).
I mean, just go play men of war and you'll see how fun and dynamic tank combat can be.

Men of War is a good game of a different genre.

I thought everyone figured out the AMAZING tactics required for this game....

 

Wait for the opponent to attack, the spotting system is best from a defender perspective.

Kill the attackers.

Counter attack and kill the remaining 6 arties, win.

Serioulsy, this game is Really shallow, if just someone would have some sort of a brain and not suffer from some restless disorder it would have been a bit more interesting.

It's a fun game, but it's by no means a MMORPG. More like a first person shooter (first person tanker?).

Hah! Get both teams doing that and you'll get rechless idiots charging enemy lines, still better than waiting for draw. And yes, game is shallow and will be as long as devs have enough people paying them for allcrap random mode.

Totally noobish. No maps have good base defense positions. If you camp your base, you'll be raped by a couple of spotters, artillery and snipers.

The game maintains a very nice balance between instant fun and strategic complexity, which attracts enough players to already earn the game a Guinness Book record. If you need something more sophisticated - plenty of RTS games on the market for you, my friend.

The guinness record is no more than waving e-penis in front of everyone, it has no value other than that. And you said it yourself "pletny of RTS games..." like MoW which has better mechanics than WoT while being a stategy game. It just shows the laziness or rather unwillingness to hire people to develop their game futher than it is, being cheapstakes they are.

Sure, your humble opinion is much more valuble.

You are completely missing the point. WoT is not trying to copycat and compete with MoW and the like. They are sold in different departments. You prefer MoW? Good for you, uninstall WoT and play MoW. It's still a free country.

WoT is a good game definitely worth trying out. It's one of its kind and i'm sure you haven't played anything like it. I think that is enough to give it a shot.

I have to agree with post saying the matchmaking is f. up, at least until you hit tier 7-8. It needs some work and I'm pretty sure it will be tweaked soon. I have to say also that you will not get past tier 7 if you do not buy a premium subscription but then again if you spent all this time playing the game I'm sure you will find some spare 10 Euros. Unless you're 12 or unemployed, but then you're better off playing pokemon or getting a job.

As to American and German tanks being underpowered or medium tanks getting pwned in this game, the truth is Russian tanks are the easiest to learn and master, but if you know what you're doing you can own in any tank of respective tier. I play Americans, I loved T29 and T32, awesome tanks with almost impenetrable turrets and good guns, I am currently playing T95 tank destroyer and I feel like a rider of apocalypse in it. Impenetrable frontal armor plate and insane gun rolling at 13 km/h. Slow but inevitable. Even IS-7 has little chance of getting out alive if he encounters it.

The problem is not the minor imbalances (if you can even call it imbalance), it's that most players have no idea what their tanks can or cannot do. Driving a medium tank into a frontal assault and, God forbid stopping to take a shot, gets you killed. Getting your tank destroyer too close to frontline (unless its JgTiger, T28 or T95) gets you raped. Camping all game in IS-7 gets your team murdered.

German heavy tanks are meant to snipe if possible, keeping distance of 400m from the enemy, Russians are easiest because they are best at ranges below 300m so noobs who usually get too close can still do something, and American heavies are excellent if you can find some low cover (rocks or dead tanks) just to stick out your turret. Medium tanks are supposed to get behind enemy lines, swift and undetected if possible, and kill artillery or flank enemy tank destroyers and heavy tanks busy fighting your heavies.

WoT is really slow paced, complete opposite of Team Fortress or even CounterStrike. If you can get past that the game is really rewarding and fun.

Depends upon what you are looking for? It's basicaly an arcade style tank vs tank lobby game with a very casual relationship with history. It's also a F2P cash shop game.

It's not a bad game for what it is..... the graphics are decent...the tanks look nice.....and there are some tactics involved in the fighting.

I find it kinda fun in a very Beer & Pretzel kinda way. It's pretty repetitive so it's not something I can see playing for longer then a couple weeks....and I wouldn't spend a dime on it....but it's a free download and the client seems to be free of spyware...so potentialy worth checking out.

Note, if you are looking for more of a grognard style WWII game or more of a wargame/RTS experience, this is definately NOT it. If you are looking for some light hearted fun blowing stuff up in a tank...it's worth checking out.

I play it as a casual diversion from more engrossing MMOs.  When I've got some spare time and don't want anything overly complicated, I play a few rounds of tanks.  I don't spend a dime and still having fun.  If you're looking for something that is a historically accurate recreation of WWII, you may be dissapointed.  Join it as a standard FPS type game and you'll have a good time.

They are coming for you!

The game is fun to a point, then gets tedious and boring.

 

There are lots of problems with the game such as a completely stuffed up vision mechanics (invisible tanks are everwhere), a matchmaker system that pits small light tanks against high level heavies, and an increasing amount of bugs with each new patch (the latest one is when your tank starts doing circles on its on accord!!).

 

Download it if you like as the lower levels are fun, but once past level 4 you'll get bored as the grind sets in. Save your money as well as having a paid (premium) account gives you very little in the way of rewards.

 

If you are after historical accuracy, you won't find it here. Whilst the stats on tanks are included against each tank, they bear no resemblance in the game play and are really there just for reading. Ditto with the ingame performance of tanks where historically strong tanks are strangely crippled and subject to quick deaths at the hands of far inferior tanks. The increased usage of one off prototype tanks, ones lifted from the drawing board of fantasy writers and a prediliction for more modern (read 1950's) era Russian, US and now French vehicles to pad out the lineup is also slowly ruining the feel of the game.

 

If you are under 16 and in need of a quick fix, this game is for you.
