So far I've been loving 0.6.4, especially with the new maps and revised tech trees. I can't wait until they start adding in more tanks, especially the American TD line.

Also, if we have enough people, I think a clan would be awesome with the upcoming Clan Wars.
You know, that would be awesome if we had enough people to have an OCN clan. We could take over the World!!!

But yea, the whole Clan Territory idea seems nice.

I'll have to add you to friends ibfreeekout , I'm rx7racer in game.

And Yes, Loving the patch so far, especially the tracking fix. Also like you waiting in anticipation for the new trees to come.

I used to play until I sold the rig.
Played since almost the start of this thread.
I wouldn't mind getting back into it, but the thought of how much time I put into the game.
Then for it to be wiped away is sort of lame.

Yea, but that happens with all betas like that anyway. And now that they have restructured the trees somewhat, or if you now what tank you want and just grab that one.

I feel you though, by the end of beta I had about 6.5k battles in. And all we got was a lousy Amer. Sherman CBT, bah. lol

So no one else plays WoT?

Surely there's a few more out there. So quick bump.

I've been playing it tons for the past few weeks. I really think we should try to get a group going or something in this. Would be fun.

Just started playing about a week ago. I'm still trying to iron out the little details of this game, but I think I've mostly got the hang of it. I played Navy Field until my eyes bled (WoT, but with war ships) so a lot of things carry over well. I'm a tier 3 Russian light tank currently, I think it is the T-46. I had my first 5 kill game last night using the huge 75mm gun.

The crew is the most confusing aspect for me. Should I carry them over between tanks, or does each crew only train to one tank? Is it worth it to save up the extra money to train them to 75% before jumping into a new tank? Can I change their skills?

I never saw the benefit of carrying them over because you still have to pay full price to train them on a new tank (and if i'm mot mistaken they loose the skills of the old tank? someone correct me on this because it has been a while since I played)

God yes. Even to pay to have the 100%. I found it made a massive difference!!!

I gave up on the game.
I remember OLD team based games like Tanarus and Infantry before Sony bought them and ruined them. This game reminded me of them because to "win" a match you have to work together as a team. This is kinda the case in lower tier matches but after playing religiously during beta and getting into the higher tiers I noticed more and more that high tier tanks cared less about the "match" and more about stats and the matches got extremely boring because no "team" wanted to make the first move.

Picture a sniper game were everybody camps... Now instead of snipers think slow moving tanks. There were matches I'd get up and go do something else only to come back and see nothing had happened, the match was over, and I WAS STILL ALIVE. It was ridiculous. I also found the higher the tier the worse people played. Like no one would stick up to help you or work together. They'd watch you die rather then come out of their hiding spot and try to help. I might try again now it's released but the game starts to fail hard when you move up in tiers and more incentive should be put in place to force team work. Like gold awarded for teamwork. The game would be amazing then and I don't think i'd play anything else... But as of right now it's frustrating if you enjoy team work over "I'm here for my stats and NOTHING else"

Can I log in to my WoT account even though it's wiped or do I have to create a new one?
EDIT: I guess I can.

I know what you mean about the camping wars. I died early in one game and had to sit until the clock ran out. It doesn't happen all the time, but I've gotten to the point where I just minimize the game and play minecraft (or something equally simple) in the background.

As for the skills I was talking about, I seem to remember a page of solider information where it lists some stuff like firefighting and repairs and some other secondary skills. Can you even get these before your crewmen are at 100%?

OK first you don't have to sit there, If you die you can leave the battle and still get all the XP that you would if you stay. But the tank is locked to that battle until its over. So like me I leveled 5 tanks at one time, One dies get out get in another tank and go again repeat. When you die just hit Esc and then click leave battle. Got 5 Tier 7 tanks but its not fun anymore the Match Making is horrible after the last patch. And they also added those OP tanks you buy with gold. Get higher in Tier and you will see what I'm talking about.

I knew you could leave the battle, but I had never considered actually getting another tank to play while the first one was still dead. That is a good idea.

I wish these games wouldn't ruin themselves with "buy to win" stuff. That is the same thing that killed Navy Field for me.
