Kinda amazed that nobody here has picked up on this one yet. Awesome tank game where you can drive a tank from WWII (and a bit into the 50's) and blow up other tanks from the era. They plan to have Japan, Italy, Britain, France, USA, Germany, and USSR tanks but only USSR, Germany and USA (minus USA TDs for now) are available so far. It is technically 'closed beta' but you just register and they send a serial a few days later.

I have been playing it for a few weeks and have yet to get bored of taking my IS and firing 122mm rounds into the rears of King Tigers. Other awesome things are the ricochets, I have had rounds where it took them 75 shots to whittle down my tank because 3/4 of their guns were too weak to penetrate my armour or they were shooting from the wrong angle. The game keeps a huge amount of reality while not going completely overboard.....oh, and it has the Maus.






And a Russian one that remains awesome despite the language barrier.

Allow me to put it this way, the game is worth an upgrade. There are some bad nuts in the group but overall I have had some really enjoyable experiences with other players. should probably mention the game is considered MMO but most of it consists of 15 minute matches of 15 tanks vs 15 tanks (it can result in some awesome tank graveyards when a rush is stopped cold).

'Your application for the World of Tank Closed Beta Test is being processed'

I just read over the forum rules... There's no real serious neo nazi crap hovering around is there?

I've applied... I think my computer could handle it. I've played games that demanded more...

Now I wait. :)

nope, the neo nazis are cracked down on pretty hard, just have minor issues with the 13 year olds that call you a hacker when you kill them, or a noob when you make a minor mistake (I saw one guy driving a Tier 1 call a guy in a Tier 8 a noob). Game is also pretty hard on Team killers, generally give out 5 days bans the first couple times then a perma ban.

There is also going to be an account wipe of tanks and such when the game goes full (expected to be Q1 of 2011 apparently)

While I agree the game is fun and I am enjoying it. There are some issues I have.

1. The tank balancing in the random battles seems a little off. They have me in my PzKpfw III going up against heavys such as the IS-2. Basically all my rounds bounce off and thiers are instant kills on me. There is no counter for this. I can hide somewhere on the map but thats not the way I play. Until you gain enough XP to unlock the PzKpfw IV your kinda of stuck dieing alot.

2. The third person view kind of ruins som of the realism/immersion.

3. I was kind of hoping to have some multi-person crews. Kind of like what they do in WWII Online - Battleground Europe

1) Well known problem and is a reason you run away after seeing one of them. heh....IV, at my level we laugh at that one too, the ones you learn to hate are the VK3602.

2) needed to see where you are going, you can zoom though

3)you mean like 4 men, at 100% with each having skills? nothing is stopping you if you can afford it.

I am usually in the thick of battle, I have actually run out of ammo and resorted to ramming other tanks.
