RE: World of Tanks

I played about 1500 battles in Beta and over 5000 battles post-Beta. Haven't paid a single penny for it yet.

 

Great fun running around in a baby Tier 1 tank. No arty.

 

Great fun rolling in my Tier 10 tank with my Clan-mates in Special Battles.

 

LOL fun in my Tier 5 heavy tank with its 22 second reload time and enormous amount of damage every time I hit something.

 

 

This is a game where you don't need the reaction times of a hyper-active teenager to play well.

RE: World of Tanks

Mr Graham Thomas - you are a very bad man for not only getting me addicted to this game (I am rubbish btw, but getting better) but also a work colleague.

We were both very tired today - in fact he didnt even make it today due to sleep depridation.

This game is seriously bad for ones health.

RE: World of Tanks

This game is getting really bad. Lots of abuse, name calling and team damage on the games I've played. People rush in and tend to lose, leaving wide flanks open, lack of basic skills and just for more, more and more points etc. Totally selfish play. There needs to be a significant overhaul before players get sick of this.

 

Shame. Frown

RE: World of Tanks

Join a clan and play Special Battles or Tank Companies and you get none of that. It's all about teamwork and fun in these.

You get a lot more teamkilling in the low tier random battles. Very rare to get teamkilling in mid to high tier battles. Use the in game reporting for any rude or offensive behaviour.

 

Been platooning with my son a lot in Tier 8's. Me in AMX 50 100, him in IS3 to try to get him the XP for the IS4 before 7.3 and the three free Russian tank give-away.

RE: World of Tanks

Good advice, thank you. It also depends on time of day and who comes online. Angry

 

Edit: It;s just pure jealousy. I had an IS-7 Tier X tank and they make a beeline for you, check your stats then tell you how rubbish you are! Some horrid people around hiding behind their PCs. Frown

RE: World of Tanks

Hi,

 

I just downloaded Wot the other day. So far I'm using Tier 1 tanks and playing from the UK.

 

Problems I'm having:

-lag seems high - maybe due to being on the wrong server for my area? The game didn't give me a choice it just loaded into a battle. Most games have a list of servers to join , I can't seem to find this in WOT's. I've seen a Find server tab, where you just type in the name. This doesn't help much as I don't know the names. I just want a list of the UK servers I can join and the ping, lag data.

-So far the game has only loaded me into two different maps - how do I get to play other maps?

-Once I've accidently sent one of my crew away to the Barracks, how do I get him back so that my team is full and can use the tank again?

-Can anyone reccommend a good low ping servers in the UK for inexperienced players?

Many thanks
