1 World of Tanks on Tue May 10, 2011 6:28 pm

Have you all heard of this game. I dig it so I thought I should share. Basically it's an MMO/Tank FPS lol.. but it's free. There are micro transactions in the game that can cost but arent required. Pretty much the typical free MMO format.

So the gameplay.. you start wioth 3 tanks and you simply go battle - which is simply playing a map 15 vs 15 where you can either eliminate the other team or capture their base (think domination in CoD sorta) and then back to your garage to repair and research new eqpt to add to your tank.

Here's a cool tip.. when you die in battle you dont have to wait for the map/match to end.. exot battle and grab another tank and go battle some more.

Stick with the other tanks when you battle. Lone wolfing will almost assure you a quick death.

Man this game takes me back to war games from my time in the army. I was in a Bradley Fighting Vehicle so not exactly a tank (it was an assualt vehicle with a 6 man squad in the back, and carried a 25mm main cannon along with a .50 cal and two tow missles - good times!!!)

Check it out.. free and gives a nice change of pace while still offering much of that FPS flavor we all seem to dig!

this game was mentioned in an article as one of the best free games out there. Also, a bunch of friends have been playing this game (which I mock daily)...I might actually have to break down and take a look at it now that my main man Lethal gave its approval.

ok I tried it last night, not much impressed yet but it was free. I imagine it gets more fun when you have a tank that can actual move faster than a glacier. I did kill 2 tanks in 3 games though (but then some friends jumped on black ops and I followed...so I'm only 3 rounds in)

oh yes... those starter tanks move at a snails pace. My favorite was the MS-1 for those tanks. It ends up with a .45mm cannon on it and will surprise some bigger tanks lol.

I played in a platoon late last night with two buddies and the voice-comms were helpful. Matchmaking tends to suck though and we got dumped into battles with tanks we really couldnt deal with very well.

I think the German line is the easiest to get into quality tanks with. I wasnt a big fan of their starter tank but the Panzer 35t is my all-time most successful so far. I had 6 kills with that tank in one round, my best effort. Currently playing a Panzer III tank.

so I've progressed pretty far now and still enjoying this game alot. Pretty much the only game i've been playing lately. It's FPS which I like of course but it's just a completley different take on it because of the tanks. It's just so cool to fire the 107MM on my KV and blast some poor scrub! Shocked

just couldn't get into it and I don't have the time to invest in leveling up. I'm just playing Black Ops and BFBC2 until BF3 comes out.

only the early taks are slow, well and some later on big heavy tanks. but you'd only use those my choice. prefer speed.. the medium tank lines would be the way to go.

It's a great game.. gotta get past the scrub tanks you start out with and find your niche!

I have a big boy heavy tank (IS4) and some other heavy tanks but my favorites are the mediums (Patton, Pershing, Type 59) with speed and heavy hitting guns, especially my Patton!

my problem is, between BF3, MW3, and Skyrim.....I just don't have time for any other game...though Skyrim is losing it's fun factor for me.

shoot their sides! the sides of hulls are most penetrable! other tanks have armor and slopes whuich can bounce shots so shoot close to 90 degree angles as often as you can.

quick 2 minute (thats what she said) tutorial
