Glad they got to 1mil... Now if they could just fix the damned Artillery, and horrible matchmaking!

I aim to start playing this very soon. Is it very difficult to get a kill in the initial stages?

Same these game always had me interested. just never got round to downloading it.

It's not to hard to get into. And it actually is easier and more fun to start then later in the game.

I wrote a review for the beta of my site: Otaku Gambit


That says more then my remaining three bubbles could hope to.

Thanks I read it, good review.

How does the company make money off this game?

NovusTerminus3239d ago (Edited 3239d ago )

In beta form they don't. However they have 'gold' which is what you can pay for to get stuff faster / better ammo, and certain tanks.

Thank you, glad you liked it!

I've never had that big of a problem with artillery, though I agree with the matchmaking. Some matches with the hetzer are just horrible.

This game is one of the best in the free MMO genre it seems.
Its got excellent graphics and tons of customization and item unlocks (new tanks).
It's really hard core as there is no re-spawn once you die and there is a lot of realistic physics so for the patient tank lover, multiplayer fanatic it should a treat.

Best FTP game I've ever played.

I'm at a PzIII right now. Savin' up for that PzIV!

this game sounds great. is it hard to get into been an mmo and tank noob.

Incipio3238d ago

It's ok...the game has pretty decent matchmaking that balances the power level of the tanks you'll come up against. won't go up against a Tiger II or King Tiger unless you are already in the medium tank class.

The game's not that hard though, if you follow a few principles:

- Never expose your rear armor to the enemy, and attempt at keeping front armor towards them at all times
- Always aim shots at the tracks or at the sides / rear of the enemy vehicles. If you can't penetrate armor, at least immobilize
- Stay in groups of 3 or more
- Use terrain as cover. Hide behind boulders, in bushes, behind houses, in trenches, etc.
