(Mods, forgive me, this is so not, gameplay, but I still feel it belongs here)

 

WoT is a beautiful game. The graphics, are seriously top-notch, I love the way it looks, appears, and, 'feels'. The audio too, excellent.

Of that, I have no doubt.

 

But it's the little details too, that still amaze and astound. 

I'm chatting, while in the garage, swapping tanks around, and I just love the way the tank tracks snap/wobble, back into place.

What a detail. Whoever thought that one up, give 'em a pat on the back.

Yes, track wobbling is important.

Yes, tracking wobbling is important, especially in old age

After changing server, playing a few games or restarting the client so the chat panels actually work obviously :p

It's the little things in life that count; you can sit on top of a mountain, but you can't sit on top of a pin.

In other words, nice positive post.

A good change from the normal whines.

I agree, the audio is great. Just listen to the fighter planes on the map Berlin during countdown.

Funny how almost all Twitch WoT streamers ignore the audio and turn it way down. Like, isn't hearing part of your senses, intensifying the experience? :)

Then you take a closer look at them and notice how the track links don't perfectly align with the drive wheel's teeth, and the entire experience is ruined forever.

 

I noticed this on the Super Hellcat the other day.

At least 3 links go through the teeth of the frontal right wheel.

It is also quite cute how water drips off a tank for a while after it has been through a river

Yet I doubt that anyone actually cares about this stuff, despite the importance of detail:

 

Vincent: And you know what they call a... a... a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in Paris?

Jules: They don't call it a Quarter Pounder with cheese?

Vincent: No man, they got the metric system. They wouldn't know what the [edited]a Quarter Pounder is.

Jules: Then what do they call it?

Vincent: They call it a Royale with cheese.

Jules: A Royale with cheese. What do they call a Big Mac?

Vincent: Well, a Big Mac's a Big Mac, but they call it le Big-Mac.

Jules: Le Big-Mac. Ha ha ha ha. What do they call a Whopper?

Vincent: I dunno, I didn't go into Burger King.

Details, hmm ..... most are very well done, however it slightly irks me that on the airfield at the South spawn on Fisherman's Bay, all the Hurricanes carry the same ID and serial number, i.e. JV-Z BP143 ........ JV-Z was a Hurricane, belonging to No 6 Sqn - JV being the 6 Sqn code, but the third letter would have been unique to each aircraft in the squadron. Furthermore, although BP143 probably was the serial number of a Hurricane (it fits in the sequence in this database: http://www.rafcommands.com/database/serials/index.php?qmem=BP&qt=NN&cur=0 but is not specifically referenced), the correct serial for JV-Z should be BP188 .......... pedantic, maybe, but to a WWII aircraft enthusiast, it sticks out like a sore thumb.

The graphics are amazing so much so you can see the heat haze shimmer from the exhausts, top notch.

Mods lock this topic! Is a positive one and shouldn't be allowed on this forum.

 

Seriously, well noted OP, I agree the little details the WG team have put into this game are great. Thumbs up.

oh the irony. my desktop with 20 odd inch monitor can only manage SD.

however my lappy can run HD max settings but i can hardly see the 15 inch screen, especially in daylight.

being old sucks like a hoover.

Also being old I wear glasses, flaming old age, anyways I have a pair for driving and a pair for reading.... I went to the opticians and explained that neither pair were of much use when I was doing important stuff on PC, like playing WoT.

So now I have 3 pairs the ones I use when doing this important stuff on PC have made a tremendous difference, unfortunately not to my stats even though I did get the rose tinted pair.....

Makes sense, i mean for better stats you should have bought the purple tinted pair instead of the rose ones, just sayin'...

Maybe it was done to confuse the enemy?   :D
