Who thought this would be a good idea?
Pretty bad OP, ill help a bit. World of Tanks is a team-based massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored warfare. Throw yourself into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world. Your arsenal includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, and the Soviet Union, carefully detailed with historical accuracy. A flexible system of authentic vehicle upgrade and development allows you to try any of the vehicles and weapons in the game. Whether you prefer to exhaust your foes with fast and maneuverable light tanks, make deep breaches in enemy lines with all-purpose medium tanks, use the force of giant tanks to eliminate opposing armored forces, or become a heavy sniper with long-range howitzers, each unit type has its own advantages and can be extremely effective when operated by a true tank ace. But being a great tank commander alone isn't enough to win! In the World of Tanks, it’s all about teamwork. Victory is achieved by combining your combat skills with those of the other members of your team, each playing their own role on the battlefield. Just add your favorite strategy to build your own iron empire and manifest the indisputable authority of the tank!

Intense battles with up to 60 vehicles... Will there be infantry (orks/elves)? or some arty and air support? Imo, tanks only battles would become boring quite soon...
It will probably get boring fast but it will be free to play so trying it out won't hurt i guess.
[QUOTE=Bowser_nl;20265663]It will probably get boring fast but it will be free to play so trying it out won't hurt i guess.[/QUOTE] Well, yeah. But here should be a way for the devs to earn money somehow. Guess you won't get MAUS for free :)
Aye minitransactions and stuff. Buy a King Tiger now! only $20! I hate that, i'd rather pay per month for a mmo.
Why is there a hummel in the second picture? That's a self-propelled artillery gun, not a tank.
[QUOTE=scout1;20265757]Why is there a hummel in the second picture? That's a self-propelled artillery gun, not a tank.[/QUOTE] They would probably have SPGs as well then.
[QUOTE=scout1;20265757]Why is there a hummel in the second picture? That's a self-propelled artillery gun, not a tank.[/QUOTE] I think that the name World of Tanks doesn't mean just tanks. I think that devs would focus on armor in general. And that could mean that we'll see not only tanks and SPGs but also assault guns, mobile artillery may be.
Atleast we don't have to search for tanks anymore.

I guess that makes sense, since they had to balance it somehow.
So it's Blitz 1941 but better? Gotta try this. The name is kinda silly. [editline]01:40AM[/editline] Apparently they just started developing it? Damnit, I though it was released already.

We should make Facepunch Army and conquer the internet world! New World Facepunch Order. NWFO.
I just hope the tankbattles are realistic like Red orchestra / Darkest hour. If that's the case im definitely trying it.
[QUOTE=Bowser_nl;20286204]I just hope the tankbattles are realistic like Red orchestra / Darkest hour. If that's the case im definitely trying it.[/QUOTE] This. I want to see some sweet bounceoff/penetrate physics, which would influence the tank in realistic way, with engine breaking, making stored ammo go off etc. I hope it won't be just "Every hit does x damage, y hits kill the tank." [editline]05:48PM[/editline] I hope it's gonna be minitransactions not influencing gameplay performance , like special pictures and cosmetic stuff, or making getting shit easier (XP boost or something), which won't influence the real fight directly.
While World War II is nice, I'd would love to see a 1980s Cold War tank game. There's a few gameplay videos in Russian on Youtube.
I don't see modern vehicular combat that fun. Modern tanks are usually able to engage targets kilometers far away. Also missiles can hit targets that are not even visible from the launching point. Same goes with cold war ones. It's wouldn't be fun.

Armored combat in Central Europe would be limited to only 3000 meters due to the terrain and weather conditions. Unless you're talking about things like tactical missile artillery like the Lance and ATACMS, there were very, very few non line of sight anti-tank missiles in service during the Cold War.
Aslong as there is Jagdpanthers I'm happy.
Is there going to be an open beta soon?
I am so going to get this when it comes out.
I hope there are Sturmtigers. :D
[QUOTE=Tac Error;20289977] There's a few gameplay videos in Russian on Youtube.[/QUOTE] Just looked those videos up. Wow, it looks absolutely terrible. No bulletdrop physics or anything as far as i can see and no realistic damage, only silly healthbars. It looks like a arcade drive and shoot deathmatch game. :frown:

If you feel like fast recon action, take Soviet A-20, if you feel like heavy destruction from long distance, take King Tiger, etc. You can chose whatever tank you have for each new battle.
