    The game is cool, but due to the forum, communication with users has long been lost. The forum is built on the principle only for their own. But even this is not the main thing, for example, for a long time I have not visited the forum. The most offensive is that with all the advantages in this game there is one big minus, and this is random. How many proposals were there to divide the participants of the random house according to their skill, almost every second battle in a team of allies or opponents is necessarily a large number of zero players. Very often, the score began to appear within 5:15 or worse. The main thing is that the skill of the players is already determined in the game, it remains only to select about one level to select a team. Personally, I’m even more likely to meet the same players in a battle more often than get angry at the moron who merges the battle. For example, I’m not at all interested in a fight, even in case of a win, but with a team of slop noob. I still believe that developers will still hear and solve this problem.

      Vladimir, can you find out your statue, number of fights and rating?

        the number of battles on one account was 25 thousand on another 10 thousand. Now a personal rating of 5364, all tanks in the hangar have a class of Master. But why such a question. I'm certainly not ass, but not nubass

          You know, I, with my 6 thousand. with extra fights, 49% of victories, and 3 thousand with extra ratings, began to feel uncomfortable, against your background ...

      The same approach is needed when forming a company, otherwise it turns out that now you can get into a company only with a stat 50+ + +, but simply to amateurs (my son basically drives me) and it's impossible to play.

      but I, on the contrary - only like randomness - only there is a place for "creativity and improvisation" wink everything else - companies and civilian companies - there is little creativity, it bothers

      more often meet the same players in battle more often
      just solved - platoon
      "skillful" platoon in the random house - 70% of victories is a normal result

    I haven't played for a long time. And I sent their letters to spam. And all because of the fact that they called me a Russian pig, and punished me for being responsible. Here's a "patriotic" game. By the way, the body that offended me was from the development team.

      Lyapis 28 November 2013 07: 36
      Usually punished for complaints of other players. And if you were offended, you had to do the same (in the sense of complaining). And if this body was from developers it was necessary to make a screen and post it on the forum. This could not be ignored by WG.
      In general, I am also enraged by the abundance of inadequacies in the random house, which destroy a fair amount of the pleasure of the game. sad

    and they hacked my account (before hacking my mailbox) and WG tech support refused to help me with the recovery issue, motivating me that the account was being restored ONLY from the registration address.
    Because probably already since September I’m not playing and it’s not pulling bully

    This is not an indicator of quality so then. Such kindness is not having a real physical model (at least elementary) in the game market as homna. This game is an ordinary shooter, crowd on crowd. Not about any tactics there is no question. Game mechanics comes down to shooting in a straight line basically. Trying to prove that gamma is gold, only by the number of fans of the homna? Not ATP.

    Great game, who do not like to pass by and play something of their own. The fact that your team will turn out to be not very experienced and not always adequate players - well, why be surprised at this, one to one as in life.

    By the way, there was a relatively normal tank simulator - this is "T-72. Balkans on fire." There, even the functions of the crew can be distributed on a grid. True game with a bunch of bugs was

    what championship in the game, where nothing depends on the skill of the player?
    championship in the game, where, after hitting a light tank with a high-explosive 122mm projectile, you can hear "did not pierce", but an armor-piercing "ricochet"? belay
    where randomly decides who should lose and who should win.

      drinks +++++!
      The game was normal two years ago when there were four nations, normal random and more or less equal technique.
      And now some unrealistic fast-firing drums with instantaneous mixing even on the go, you don’t play at all, but you charge or reduce more than half of the battle if during the shot the target disappears, the projectile does not fly to the aiming zone, but to any other side, etc.
      The game went on a commercial footing and the opinions of the players there are of no interest to anyone

          I agree that the game has switched to commercial rails! Now AMX, Leopards, T-62A and "Americans" of the 60s are racing against World War II tanks. Many Frenchmen generally have "drums" negative .If you don’t invest real money, then you will "rise" for a long time and persistently, if not in a minus you will leave. And without a premium, the result is practically zero, and in case of defeat, it goes into a minus.

      I agree. And the damage depends on the prior art. Example: (KV-2 152mm landmine average damage 910nr armor penetration 86mm) when firing at level 7-8 equipment that does not have armor more than 86mm damage, when penetrated, it is 300-400nr. Is it normal?
