Default World of Tanks

Anyone else playing this?

http://www.worldoftanks.com/

I'm getting into it now, I figured I'd mention it because it appealed to me as a wargamer. Vehicles have different front, side and rear armours etc. Various weapons with penetrations and stuff.

It's pretty tactical too and best of all its free to play.

Let me know if you're on or planning to get on and perhaps we can get an all heresy platoon going - rolling in formation with 15 other people on voice comms would be awesome.

Yeah I'd say its very accurate, engine noises and speeds as vehicles climb hills decrease. Turrets rotate at different speeds based on the vehicles.

It's as close to a real tank sim as I've ever seen.

Fuck yeah!

All Loltraktor! All the time!

Though I'm also quite keen on the BT-7's ridiculous speed.

Been playing it a bit tonight, slowly getting the hang of it, want to try out a tank destroyer, get some sniping going, starting to think maybe taking a loltrackor wasn't the best idea but its fun. Got to think fast, make snap decisions and then live with them. Might be a one to play a bit this one.

I used to play closed beta, got to t-43, its good game but not for me, I can't find lasting appeal in it. Got a friend who is real hardcore, had all soviet and russian tenks in beta and started again when live started.

I enjoy playing the game, but haven't got the voice settings set up. I am up to a Panzer III at the moment.

I play every now and then. I like how they made it so people can't run our and rambo. My dad says it's the best simulator game he's played,(Not to say he's old, but he's been playing video game since they came out).

I suck at the game, personally, so I can only make it through about 3 battles before I raging.
