    Agreed it would good to get a decent sized Platoon going. That was a total blast.

    While world of tanks is a free2play game it has credits which you earn in game by shooting shit, gold is also available which upon release will be bought for real life cash, at present on the closed beta you get 150g per day but this will stop upon release.

    No, download directly from their website as it is FREE... no cost for the game.

    The game is really just MEH. I played it for 2 hours, and quit. Yes it is kinda fun, but I hate driving 50% of the time. If I want to drive I will play a driving game.

    Since the servers down for daily maint at the moment, I would like to say that I play under the name McNeil and I generally drive my IS (Engine, radio, tracks done. 1/2 way to upgraded turret then the long road to 22k exp for the engine) or my KV-3 (Elite) into battle, occasionally my A-20 when I feel like making enemy artillery rage.

    I liked the KV. It is slow n lightly armoured but with a 122mm is a beast. Do not use the 155mm, worst choice ever. Treat the KV like a tank destroyer. Hide n snipe

    It's very good imo. Not fully realistic in the sense of others. As on truesim but realistic enough for me. Not very arcadey

    Right, now I am home and not on my mobile sneaking a post here and there at work I will try to answer some of the questions with a bit more indepth, starting with guitarfreaknations about the KV,

    As I said the KV can be used well but in the sense of a Heavy Tank it is one of the worst and is a failure, (in game it is perfect as it is like the Real life version)

    The KV is slow, heavy but lacks the armour thickness of the other heavies, 2/3 hits from a good med, your gone 1 from a heavy if your lucky maybe 2, but do not count the KV out.

    Speed is not a good option with the KV and the same/or best tactic for the T-28 should be used, however whilst the T28 had some speed it lacked armour again so was a perfect sniping tank. the KV can fill this role perfectly, the problem is armament with her.

    KV starts of with a very basic gun which cannot shoot through much, the 76mm Zis-5, with a pen of around 86mm once you take into armour slope it'll have a hard time, Ignore my mistake in the previous thread and ignore the 122mm, go straight for the KV-2 turret, ignore the 152mm gun, big and does a lot of damage but at 2.7rounds per minute and less penetration than the 107mm you'll get fucked, lower accuracy with slow reload speed means you need to rely on close quarters one hit kill punch,

    107mm Zis-6 is a fucking beast, over 7rds per minute with good pen at 167mm on a standard round means you can (if crafty) take on heavies, Tigers, KV's, Heck I even took out a King Tiger (Tiger II) with my KV (1v1, so it is possible) this is the weapon for you, good accuracy followed by a quick aiming time means its the best weapon for the job.

    Tactics with the KV are more defencive, do not move with the main line of heavies/mids, seems crewl but they can take more punishment so let them take it, sit behind and snipe (if you attack) bushes/trees/walls to hide behind and ambushes are the best with this tank, it's slow and with the KV-2 turret has a low traverse speed at 15deg/sec so make sure your flanks are protected.

    Hope this helps those KV users.


    For those wondering if the game is good, yes I would say so. Is it a tank simulator, Hell no, is it Arcade, I wouldn't say so, I would draw it in between,

    Tank sims seem to mostly be about mastering 100 million different commands and keys, this is simple, WASD to move, mouse to point and aim, click to fire, mouse wheel to zoom in and numbers to choose ammo type,

    Arcadish, a little bit not perfectly realistic but for the most part I would say there is a fine balance of realism/arcade that has been achieved with this game. your crews can get injured and you can lose a track to be disabled, fuel tank hit and lose fuel/fire, engines fire and heck you can hit an ammo rack and kill a tank in one, like in real life, however the health, with HP is Arcadish, lack of stupid sim controls draw it more into an arcade game but with a perfect sense of realism.

    I give this game a big big thumbs up, especially for a free to play this has to be one of the best I've ever played,

    Hope this all helps

    Just had my first round, died quickly lol. Still not sure what's all going on completely, but I figure I'll keep playing till I either get bored with it or improve.

    I'm using the MS-1, any suggestions? I got smoked by a guy using a machine gun cannon of sorts...I don't know if I even hit him once lol. I do dig that you can go into FPS view and back out on the fly with the scroll wheel. This could be really fun if I can get into it. I haven't been hardcore into a tank game since Tanarus was free to play.
