"The wars of the future will not be fought on the battlefield or at sea. They will be fought in space, or possibly on top of a very tall mountain. In either case, most of the actual fighting will be done by small robots. And as you go forth today remember always your duty is clear: To build and maintain those robots."

Honestly I haven't played in a while. It was a blast at first but I got kinda tired of competing against Wallet Warriors with gold ammo.

you have been able to buy gold rounds for silver for ages. there are tons of new maps and tanks...having money does not make you a better player. i have some gold, but i use it for slots, camo...etc.

actually, yesterday i killed a special tank for 150 gold. easy as pie.

Yup, gold isn't really a thing as long as you know your angles and exposure, pay attention to where you are and what you're doing, and at what you're firing and where. A loadout of 3-5 rounds a match will do the trick without running you dry on silver, as long as you're using them when you need to -- an enemy tank has to die RFN, and it's make-or-break for the match -- which means realistically you're firing gold one out of every five matches or so. The stuff you have to grind up is way more important than gold ammo.

Though, I haven't played since before the Japanese tanks went live. Mucked around a bit with my Chi-nu Kai, but that was it..

RockofAges: I play WoT as well, and I am a pretty damn good shot with my LEFH. I play SPG.. would say I take out an average of 2ppl a game and injure 4-6.

Similarly, but from the other side, that's the game that taught me, "If you don't let someone win every now and then they won't want to play with you any more."

Never got into playing arty. My favorite was the Marder TD.

My mom's company does the higher tech, lower finesse, tank training for the military, but I can't remember what the system was called. It allowed for massive multiplayer "live fire" combat simulation between armored divisions. When I saw Surrogates and they went to the military installation where they had row upon row of soldier players in their couches I thought "We could do that with tanks right now."

Just a matter of  making that communications unjammable. But really, what's the point of tanks in this era of Predators.

done in one.  clan wars start in a half an hour.  markoff8585 if anyone cares to platoon later or add me for another day.
finally got a comfy IS3, still not enough silver for the GW panther.  Still wreck people in the hummel, had 82% win rate in 17 rounds last night.
only time will tell what the HD update with HAVOK will bring.

I was arty for most of my WoT days.  Got up to the M40/M43 and it sucked.  I was hemorrhaging money in that thing.

But the M12 was sweet - I would fark people up with that thing.  And blind counter-fire kills on enemy arty was the most satisfying kill of all.  Kinda miss that game.

I found my swerve in the Brit tanks. Dat DPM and gun elevation. I love, love,  love my 'Tilly, first top gun I ever got was in it on Severogorsk.

In college we had xtank. It had a bonus feature: Ultimate Frisbee mode. Try that with a 60 ton metal monster.

i have quite a few arty...all very different. i have a russian one with rotating turret and assload of ammo. rains death on anyone...reloads so fast.
hummel reloads real slow...but if i hit you...dead.
the american stuff is kind of in the middle...better maneuverability...but...not needed.

never tried the french...anything

i'm gonna go run my tiger over some people.

Never much cared for playing arty.  Too team dependent, and being the last to die in a match that you know has been lost for some time isn't much fun.  Currently working my way up the Russian medium line, on the T-44 now.  Interesting contrast to the German med line, my first tier ten was the Leopard 1, which is also very team dependent.

Can't wait for the GuP figmas to be released!

Any of you WoT players venture into WoWarplanes?  I beta-tested it for a while and it ran great on my standard i3,  2.3GHz laptop.  But when the game went public, it became unplayable for me because of graphics issues despite any apparent increase in total players.  In fact, it seemed like there were less players once it went public.

New? The tank museum an hour from here has been holding weekend R/C matches for like 20 years at least.


Agree on the pond naval battles, those things are sweet.
