World of Tanks is an F2P online game, EGF has a few players so I guess it was time to make a thread about it:

Main site (EU): http://worldoftanks.eu/

Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_of_tanks



So, 8.3 coming out tomorrow, artillery are being nerfed and the Chinese are coming on to the scene with their many Russian copied tanks...

Got ace tanker for the KV-3, it's not that bad of a tank, just gotta get up close.

SPOILER: Show
Finally someone put the physics engine to proper use.Image





We could organise training games for those who are new, or just want to practice.

Game Wiki: http://wiki.worldoftanks.com/Main_Page

Take note, there are 4 servers, US, EU, SEA and Russia, so if you want to play with a certain player, you'll have to be on their server, which might be a problem if you've already made an account on a different server.

Current players:

[EU] Fireball - FireballK
[EU] InstrumentalityOne - InstrumentalityOne
[EU] Tankred - Challenger2000
[US] soul.assassin - sa547ph
[EU] Hyper Shinchan - RedBear87
[EU] LeoXiao - RadioSilence
[US] KnightmareX13 - KnightmareX13
[EU] Sgt. Griff - Sgt Grif
[US] MAGI_01 - MAGI-01
[US] Agentomega - OM3GAS7RIK3
[EU] PanzerEVA - still_guns

I got started yesterday, and the LOLtraktor is currently my top rig for quick grinds as I go along, but I win some or dance the Anglerfish Dance.

MG mounts are great against thin hulls, punches it like Swiss cheese; multiple semi-auto shots are good for barraging at the loss of accuracy.

I'll probably be picking this game up along with Hawken once I get my hands on a computer powerful enough to run them.

As a result the Chinese tank fleet features the best possible traits from their foreign counterparts: the manoeuvrability of the American tanks, the shooting accuracy of the Brits, the fast firing of the French and the fire power of the Soviets.

Lousy session tonight. I found myself swearing at the idiots who rush in without any base defense whatsoever, along with shitty lag.

Well I need to know their WoT names and the server they're on as well.

Gonna see if I can get to the KV-4 today, one of the heaviest tanks in game, barring Maus and E-100.

Hmm, maybe you should try playing on the SEA servers if the US servers lag, soul?
(And maybe go American and German TDs this time)

Picked the US servers because I might run into some ASuki crew there.

Chi-Ha ain't half bad. Had some exceptional amount of shit teams today though. Maybe it's the patch but some retard thought he needed to tell me how to operate and kept talking trash until I killed the 3 remaining enemies while single-handedly capturing the base just so I could tell him "u mad breh?"

Do you have a "drive your tank straight and stop looking at my TOG II*"? Jeez, it's already annoying when people keep talking about it (submarine, battleship, crap, etc.) but some are literally hypnotised by that thing.
