Ouch free stuff to give away and still only gave it 62%.... Constant dumbing down of the game must only work in Russian Market.

Pc gamer isn't that great a mag.  I lost all respect way back when they reviewed JumpGate by net devil.  They gave the article to a journalist called Ste Curren (never forgotten in 18 years) game was well liked and received.  The guy gave it 5%

The guy was notoriously bad at games reviews. And he didn't like the genre.  

Ill bet they gave the review to someone that doesn't like tanks.   Knows nothing about tanks.  

When Jason Bradbury left. It went rapidly down hill.  

Saying that.  I don't think I would have given WoT 68% more like 52%.  

And that's a game I love. Seeing flushed down the toilet (Imo) annoys me.

The Excelsoir is £6.29 in the premium shop, so its a few pence saved plus the boosters and the mag. But thanks for the heads up.

Wot would be solid 80% if tier 10 was rebalanced, +1 tier spread in MM. Arty removed. No more OP prems. Rework maps to minimize cities and corridors, also not flat as a pancake, should have usable terrain. Improve accuracy in the game.

The review does say its been oversimplified.

 

I suspect if WoT had popped up as a fresh new game now they would've given it a much higher rating, the over familiarity from 8 years in beta hasn't done it any favours however.

Tbh the PC Gamer review doesn't even make much sense. They talk about 'all the variation in the game being in the later tier tanks' - Haven't a clue what that means, there's no more tank variation in the later tiers than in the earlier ones if you ask me.

Bought it, and to be honest the PC Gamer magazine probably has more side armour than the excelsior tank.....

​Its nothing too amazing. Good speed, Good front armour, terrible side armour, mediocre short range gun. Only sees tier 6 tanks max.

 

Tier V thou so can be a bit sealclubby.

Does PC gamer come in a bag? Remember the magazine codes about 6 years ago, where you could just photograph them in the magazine in the newsagents?

Of course I would never do such a thing.
