Default World Of Tanks - Part II

I have been playing WoT for about a week and a half now and I have to say this is an amazing game. The graphics and gameplay are really something for a free game.

At first I thought it was arcadey like some of you said it was. But there is a layer of strategy and tactics there if you choose to look for and use it. There is a lot more to the game than just gaining exp. and buying the next tank and moving up the development tree to the next one and so on.

There are many, many layers to this game and while it is true there are a lot of butt heads in the game, there are also a lot of great people in the game as well. About five days ago I met a guy while tagging along with him in a game and chatting and "playing as a team". As it turned out he was in a WoT clan and invited me to join up with them. Im having a blast tanking every night. These guys are a lot like KG. They play socially and for fun, but win with style and are some of the best players out there.

Im telling you guys I think we in KG have missed the boat on this game and those that have tried it gave up too early. Its an amazing game and I have no doubt this could be the game to bring us all back together again if you would all try it. For those that have tried it in the past give it another go. You may be surprised at the new changes that have been made.

You need to earn your stripes as it were in the lower tiers to get up to decent levels/tanks.

Everything has its strengths and weaknesses.

Scouts are fast but have no armor or decent guns for the most part.

Mediums have decent everything but cant handle heavies and can be exploited by scouts if the scout knows what he is doing.

Heavies have killer armor and guns but are ponderous on the field and can be exploited by fast tanks.

There are trees for self-propelled ATGs as well. Some like the early German ones like the Marders, have good guns but no armor. Then you have excellent ones like the Hetzer, Stug & PzIV/70 just to name a few.

Then you have the dreaded self-propelled arty. Everyone hates these guys. You can be killed by someone hiding on the back of the map. This is why you always have to be moving all the time. Arty almost always has no armor to speak of, but can kill with indirect fire.

You have all these trees to work on in each of these different countries -

America, Germany, Russia, Britian, France, China

Its a lot of fun.

Steve - Im on every night after 11pm. in the contacts box type in KG_Panzerschreck and my name will come up. Then right click and add me to your friends list. Once that's done you'll be able to tell when im on by a green light beside my name. All you have to do is open your friends list.
