i thought i'd pass this along to you guys. I'm playing in the beta for world of tanks, a WWII tank battle MMO. you can apply for a beta code at http://www.worldoftanks.com/

i applied an got my code a few hours later. it's pretty fun. you can play with all sorts of great 1930s russian light tanks. the germans also get lots of captured stuff to use.

i'm playing a bt-2 light tank right now, it's fun to zip around!

Yeah, this is a great game. I am now up to a T-28, an SU-85b, a Hetzer, and a Sturmpanzer I Bison. Who else plays? I know Grenada does, I've seen him in battles before.

I've got a Panzer III/IV, Luchs, Wespe and T-28 (I think, the Russian Medium on the Heavy line)

Awsome game! Though my computer hasn't been able to run much of anything lately.

Only if you can find them all, their usernames, and form a 'platoon'.

Need to spend your gold to buy a 'Premium Account' to start one.

If you want an account now, just search "word of tanks beta key giveaway" and get one from another website.

I have a PzJgI, a Marder and a Hetzer so far. The Hetzer is by far the worst out of them. I'm regularly in games with Kingtigers and IS-3s and when i snipe them when they are engaged by some medium or hvy tanks of our team the rounds bounce off everytime. The 7,5 doesnt even get trough the REAR armor when i'm 20 metres away. All i can hope for is a destroyed track that my teammates finish him. Not to speak of that the hetzer is a one-hit-destroy target by most heavy tanks...
I tried the 10.5cm howitzer with premium amo (about 150mm penetration, 350 damage which is nice) and that gets trough the armor of Tigers and Is-2...sometimes even Kingtigers. But that cannon requires to get close because of its bad accuracy and still i need 3-4 shots to kill a Tiger - to one shot for the Tiger to kill me.
Really...i hope that gets better with the Stug, but that requires a ton of games with the Hetzer which i dont like. I doubt i will ever get to my beloved Jagdpanther if that goes on that way. What do you think, anyone playing tank destroyers?

I'm having some fun with my Russian tank destroyer. I don't have a premium account/I'm not paying in tons of gold so its taking me forever to get to the Tier 2 vehicles. Trying to hit light tanks is a pain in the ass.

Getting decent at sniping with the little Russian SPG though.

I just got my beta key. This weekend I will try my hand on this game.

Are they actually working with Premium Accounts in beta ? How is that a good idea to buy ?
Very interesting business-model Wink

You get 150 gold, which will be the currency you actually have to buy for in the final game, every day to test. You can buy special ammo, some tanks, better crew training and - personalised names of your tank crews...by far the most important thing out there  Very Happy  Also if you save some gold you can buy the premium account for some days which gives you i believe +50% exp and credits each game.

Dont get me wrong i really like that game. The PzJg in low tier games kicks ass, my best game was 8 kills in a game so far. And even better the Marder with the fat russian Pak36(r) and 9 kills. But the hetzer is quite strange, i'm always at the bottom of the list of games and the smallest medium tank i met in games there are Panthers and those strange VK mediums....weeeell. I tried HE ammo for the 10.5cm of the Hetzer now and it works better. Pretty strange, since the armor piercing is so low but it seems to damage outer systems of enemy tanks so these HE rounds make some damage everytime - even on Is3 and KTs. Armor piercing rounds, when they bounce off, make zero damage at all.

I think the main thing that spoils the game has to be the high ping players - it's no fun trying to hit a tank teleporting across the map...

What I hate now, is the high level people that end up in my Tier 4 games.

I daresay that Tigers, Panthers, IS-3s, and the prototypes should NOT, repeat NOT be fighting a Panzer III.

Just plain unfair. You can't get crap for XP because you can't do any damage, so it takes you FOREVER to get the next rank.

Seconded. All that happens in a battle is "Battle Start!" "That one didn't go through!" "Were done for, everybody, get out!"

I have:
KV- slow, huge, bad gun, little experience gain, couldn't be much worse

A-20- FAST, can't hit while moving, but everyone can hit me.... Get lots of experience when I win, but next to nothing when I lose. High tier tank, but light tank can't penetrate IS-4 any side, any range, so...

T-28- one of the best tanks ever, fast, great gun, lots of experience... what more could you ask for?

SU-85B- decent, good gun, decent speed, not much experience gain, don't use much

Sturmpanzer I 'Bison"- Huge, only 10 shots, terrible reload, no armor, typical artillery

I'm experiencing that in lower tiers. My Su-76 is in games with KV-3s. Because I'm going to puncture that. One of the mediums I encounter... Pz III/IV? is also impervious to my AP rounds.


I'm trying a little bit of everything, but have had the best performance in my AT-1 and SU 18. Currently have:
Su-76
BT-2
SU 18

Currently working on getting the next tier of Soviet SPG.


Anyone else wishing the French tanks that the Germans are using had their more recognizable French names?

Thats exactly what i was talking about. How should you, at the bottom of the list, fight Is-3 and Kingtigers on top of the list with your poor Hetzer. Even the smallest medium tanks are VKs which often are not penetrated by AP ammo. BUT did you guys tried HE ammo for your guns? It seems that i damage a Kingtiger with every shoot i hit it...not much, about 10-15% each, but at least it damages them. AP ammo always bounces of of them and make zero damage, but HE ammo seems to dmg outer systems or stuff regardless of the armor. Well...i mean i dont know for sure thats just what i recognized in the last games.

edit:
I'll play a series of training games tomorrow. In training games everyone can join regardless of premium acc or not. Is anyone interested in a forumini tank battle? Post your nicknames, then i could invite you to the rooms or stuff, mine is C0ldh8rbour. Second letter is a zero, not an 'o'. I'll start around 15h CET.

Its weird, these are the same tier, right?

SU-76

SU-5.

But, my SU-5 ends up, consistently, in games with IS tanks, Tiger IIs, T-44s, and the prototype German medium tanks. Meanwhile, the biggest thing my SU-76 has been up against is a KV-1S.


I've also heard that using HE against armor your AP won't penetrate is a good idea, however my poor SU-5 only takes ~1-2% of health off a Tiger when I drop the shell on the damn roof.


Edit: I go by Chainlynx, same as my Xbox Live name.

I got a Pz III A now, trying to upgrade to something better. Not much experience in the games. I am competing against PzIV's and KV's and not doing much damage to them.

Like all of these games, coordination doesnt seem to be what people want to do.

Panzer III/IV and a LOOOOONG way away from the VK (H) prototype.

Love love LOVE my Panzer II Luchs though. I can dance circles around any medium, only problem is turret traverse speed. I have 2 6kill games in it.

Also my T-26, using as a booster to the Russian Heavys.
