    Nick Salute comrade! From 2000 to 2002 I had the opportunity to serve on the Russian-Chinese border, and my friends, those who play with me, have long fulfilled their duty to their homeland! (if necessary, by the first order we’ll do it again!) The thing is that everyone is resting to the best of their interests!
    I don’t understand people who condemn look at things that are not suitable for them in spirit. Many have forgotten such a word as respect, in this case respect for the interests of others .....

    Tanks are a good game - unlike other addictive games, the player does not have to spend more and more time on it and you can leave it at any time to take a break (and you can’t just drop the addictive games - you need to show a fair amount of willpower).
    In general, the gaming industry in the future may become as important as oil production or the production of cigarettes and vodka - this is a mechanism for drawing money from the population of countries, bypassing borders and without any balance - i.e. money is not exchanged for any tangible product and this cannot be controlled by any customs.
    Therefore, in this field it is also necessary to keep up with the others, and it will be like in virtual money - you will no longer be able to pick up a visa and others from this niche - the king of the hill.

    I saw in "Galileo" how the gamers of the plane planters were seated in a simulator of a civilian plane (they used civilian planes in games as well), so the instructor fell out of sight when they settled all emergency situations. Therefore, in tank schools, World of Tanks should be in the curriculum.

      tank schools World of Tanks

      This game does not give either theoretical or historical knowledge of tank control in any way ...

      Quote: Storyteller
      (they also used civilian aircraft in games)

      But just the same MIcrosoft Flight Simulator, it is routinely used in many simulators for pilots, so it is not surprising that they "settled" everything there.

    Great game, there is a time I go to a dozen fights a day, but a certain category of players like participating in various tournaments ...

    PS In general, World of Tanks has no alternative at all.
