Honestly I don't feel like the game is "Buy to Win" at all. The premium tanks are actually quite bad for their Tiers; they require a driver that actually knows what he/she is doing to succeed. I see too many of them just buy the Tier 8 tank then charge straight ahead thinking they are god, then just die right away because they don't know how to use them properly.

Anyway, in regards to the crews that someone was asking about earlier, they work like this:

You can keep your crew and transfer them to any tank within the same NATION. It is preferable to keep them within the same tank type though (light, medium, heavy, tank destroyer, or SPG) because then they don't lose much of their experience. The skills they have (if any - Camouflage, Repair, or Firefighting) transfer over, although I'm not sure if they degrade or not when you move them. If you move the crew to a different tank type, then you have to retrain them. A crew at 100% is far superior to a regular crew at 50% (things like reloading, aiming, speed, traverse speeds all become faster).

By the way, I say all this while owning a Premium account as well as the German Lowe. Premium accounts really help because of the 50% more credits and experience earned per battle, and the Lowe helps because if used right, can earn you a lot of credits and experience, for being a tank that is rather outclassed in Tier 8.

Used to play when I had a rig to actually play it on.
It was a great game, but I started giving up after they were saying they were making it public and were doing a hard reset.

I don't like that they went for this buy stuff etc model.
It's rather disappointing. It's sort of like that Battlefield Play4Free.

Well, mbudden I kinda see what you mean but yet I don't. I spent $15 bucks. I have 2 Tier 9 tanks, 1 tier 10 tank and a tier 2,5,7,8. I make my credits with the lower tier tanks and spend them when I play my higher tier tanks.

My wife has spent $0 on the game and is a tier 7 TD. If you spend real money it makes teh game a bit easier(as in you can go up the tiers with a bit less playing) but it in no way gives any true advantage. I'll rock a LOWE in my T29 and he spent $45 for that LOWE, I spent nada for my T29.

Also, for the ones saying there is no teamwork, wow, guess you never tried Platoons or Company battles aye. And with Clan Wars, it gives it a good bit of team work. Only problem with Clan Wars I'll admit is not having Tier restrictions, so as of now it's pretty much bring a Tier 8 SPG, Tier 9 TD/Med and Tier 10 Heavies or you get rolled. But that's still in Beta, so we'll have to see what that brings.


Also, for the question about Crews and carrying them over. It seems it is mainly useful once you get to about Tier 5 as that is when you are finally in a tank long enough to get Camo, Repair, or firefighting skill added. Once you switch tanks and change crews you do not lose those skills. Your competency goes down yes, but if your crew is at 100% you go to 80% for free, 90% for 20k credits, or if you're rich 100% for like 200 gold, which I think is stupid to do.

Also, for the one that mentioned Navy Field, you realize a lot of the dev's for WoT worked on and came from NF. They wanted WoT to be a game where you really could play it without spending money, if you recall NF essentially if you didn't spend some real cash you had no chance in hell. I got so I hated NF because of that.

And there is a lot of info on the WOT wiki that can answer a lot of questions I've seen. http://wiki.worldoftanks.com/Main_Page

Anyone that plays feel free to add me in game and hit me up. We'll platoon up and I'll get you my TS info, communication is key to team work.

I have not tried Platoons or Company Battles yet as I only played beta. Also, none of my friends play so I've never actually had a chance to play together. I just mean for standard battles you might find 1 battle out of every 30 where you naturally seem to work well with another player or two - slaughter the whole other team - then it's back to the random mix.

What's your name in game? I just started since the reset so it'll be a while before I raise in tiers. Although if get frustrated with the game I might "up and delete the works of it" if it really ticks me off one night.

Well, it's a hard path after that reset I'll admit. My name in game is rx7racer .

I can tell now you'll get frustrated and want to do that many a times.

I played my arse off that first month with premium, can't deny the grindfest. But as soon as you get to the tanks one may prefer, the grind gets to be gone and fun is back again. Such a long road though, and with the tree changes that have been done and the ones up and coming, should prove to be good though. In case you haven't seen since you said you haven't played since Beta. http://game.worldoftanks.com/news/fu...d-and-improved

I'm an idiot. When I saw a few folks mention a revised tree I took it literally and thought they adjusted the graphics somewhat. ANYWAYS, Did they edit the maps slightly since beta? I haven't seen any new maps yet either and there are maps I still haven't seen since beta.

Also, any gamers know much about the optimization of the game? I find the games settings are weird. Like sometimes when trying to adjust settings for better FPS, the FPS get worse when I lower settings.

Yea, they have improved on the maps a good bit. Added a couple more, Westfield is a nice one I like now.

As far as optimizations go, meh, would like to see a bit more but it has gotten better. I run all high and no issues. So prob can't help you out much there.

Well the game is single threaded at the moment... that's a huge part of the problem.

I think the WoT forums have some user made low-res texture packs that will help the game run better. They did for the last patch at least.

Lower then what's already in the game?! Oh my...

The game runs alright on my machine but I like to set sight distance to high and some other settings take a knock because of that. But all the same, some maps I get 90fps while others only see 40fps. Hard to find the happy medium.

Pretty well for medium settings at full screen.
