Do you get any perks for joining at the beta test? Otherwise not interested. Entice me with valuable goodies WG and you got yourself a deal. Otherwise not interested.


P.S I don't mind if those valuable goodies are for WoT.

I think the majority of people here are waiting for (good/) news of world of tanks, not some other game that has the same publishers.

The concept sounds interesting, but the visuals looks bad in my opinion.


After watching some gameplay i noticed right away, the same problem with the other total war games.

Units that are just standing around doing nothing and some that seem to be fighting may turn around as if there are no enemies.

The arrows from archers looks like locked on missiles lol. If the enemy unit is moving, so does the arrows mid air.


Those things bothered me so much, i could never get hooked on there games. I might as well play a board games with figures and use my imagination instead hah.

Excellent game. Since open beta i put World of Tanks on hold. Maybe i will comeback to test HD maps. Is way more challenging that WoT. The micromanagement of some troops/commanders is just crazy. Love it, especially wardogs :)). For those bad at micromanagement there are always elephants. Yes, i love animals:))

The only problem i have is that it's a bit to grindy

Wrong forum, reported for spam.

This is the World of Tanks forum.


Also, I saw this has the classic WG premium shop where you can buy units that free players don't have at their disposal and thus lost interest.

If you want to play a good Total War game either get:

Rome 1 and/or 2

Shogun 1 and/or 2


Those are the best in the series.

Well I'm slightly bored so I downloaded it to see what it is all about. Then I was asked to give some kind of permission to some "anti cheat" program. And I was like "nah I'm fine thx" and then all I got from the game was "error". I don't think I'll have much fun with playing Error so let's undo all this and pretend it never happened.

Total war series is the game i love and play the most i own all titles and dlc upto and including Warhammer 2. The mere thought of these people at WG having anything to do with the Total war franchise frightens the life out of me. After watching them turn World of Tanks from a great game and concept into the utter mess it is today i fear for Total War. What can we expect for arena's, i'm guessing op russian knights with inpenetrable armour and archers with 340mm of HEAK (high explosive anti knight) arrows backed up by super impressive soft stats way above that of other nations thus enabling them to rampage all over the battle field in the usual "balanced" russian way.


Add this to WG's completely useless support and their "we don't really care" attitude and i really fear for Total War titles with any WG involvment. I hope and pray that arena's is the last Total war title WG manages to weasel it's way into. I will never touch or start another WG title after dealing them first hand in WOT and WOW. Arena's is a nice concept but one i will never touch due to it's involvement with WG. 


If you are looking forward to it good luck hope i'm wrong for the players sake but as a personal choice its become untouchable.

absolutely related with world of tanks....

i played some of the total war series how ever , i doubt if this one is going to be good ... reason for such a claim rises from the fact that sega tends to  ruin any game that they didnt create themselves ... like company of heroes 2 and of course their biggest failure the Dawn of war III .... you might say MetalbrosInc this is their game ,,, it belongs to them total war is Sega's game ,,,, yes thats true  but if its in CO-OP with another company you can always suspect the outcome ,,,, anyway give it a try its a F2P and if its good you can send me a message tellling me how idiot i was . and if its wasnt always remember me

​Based on the closed beta, if you are hoping to find some players with a brain, you are going to be seriously disappointed.


But apart from the player base being made up of monkeys, i'd highly recommend anyone interested in that style of game give it a go.

Fingers crossed for shared premium account (although I doubt it since its a partnership with creative assembly rather than WG's own title).
