I havent personally. What do you think about it? Is there anything better or worse in wt than in wot?

Would you like something implemented in wot from WT?

Is it still popular? Was it ever?

Can't see this lasting too long.

 

'Advertising', a rival game might not go down too well with the Mods.

According to what my son in law is trying to tell me, WT is only good in the simulation mode. I tried the other modes for a time but even there you have to be an ammo scientist to succeed, so I gave up. I'm not that type of player.

Ok, my genuine opinion.

 

Regarding the tank side; I'm here. WoT is way better. ;)

 

The warplane part; if you like air combat, it's good. But get a decent joystick.

For me it has been interesting to play till I reached tier six I think. Played Hermann tanks which seem to suffer compared to ofc soviet tanks. At that tier my battle weight was too high and always got stumped on by good players which was too frustrating for me.
You need to be super careful and campy which was no fun for me.

Also that one shot idea is good but from another point of view too frustrating even though you can respawn.

Maybe gonna give it another try some time in the future. Wot is getting more and more frustrating too...

I didn't rate it but that's because I'm old and shake my fist at anything different. (Also OP if you get invited to Paris and offered a lift home through a tunnel turn it down :hiding:)

BS. I opened a thread about AW and the reason why it was closed was because I asked it to.

WT can be a lot of fun.  I don't like the arcade tanks because it has an indicator on the HUD for aiming elevation and penetration indicator.  Realistic is a lot of fun, but can be campy.  The damage model is really good, and there is no pay to penetrate ammo.  You do have to know where to shoot though, as penetrating solid shot rounds have to hit a module or crew member to do any damage.  There are aphe rounds which explode after penetration, so researching which tanks have those and how effective they are is worthwhile.  It is refreshing to have so many ammo choices and the highest numbers don't necessarily mean the most effective.

Tried it, didn't like it. WT would be good for me if there was a mode between arcade and realistic.

Not that I like WOT.... I rage-uninstalled WOT yesterday, again.

I play it. It's an alternative.

 

I can't make my mind up if I find it more difficult to learn because I don't know the maps or if it is just the gameplay but it is a different experience and I quite like it, especially if I'm having a bad run in WoT.

Planes are fun. Ground forces is terrible. You either kill everything on the first shot. Waste all your ammo doing nothing but the wrong type of cit hits. Or you die instantly on the first hit that takes out 3 out of the 5 crew members after 5 min of driving across the map looking for targets. It's better then it was before when it came out. But still... not for me. They lost most of their population after the 122mm gun buffs, so even an IS could 1 shot a Maus. They kinda never did recover after that, and it's still a bit off for me in some areas. But some still enjoy it.

Yes and I didn’t like it, btw isn’t that the game with more premium tanks than non-premiums?

Realistic battles are fine, but I don't really play it anymore. Mainly due to almost weekly 3gb updates, my crapconnection really takes it's time with them.
