I'm still trying to tweak the improved graphics....I can run it at maximum and get 25-30 FPS on most maps, but I want just a little more.

I really like the unique gun sounds. I get distracted by the new track sounds.

I am enjoying the new physics, though it makes it much more "arcade" than "sim" in my mind. Not complaining, but it's a distinct choice on the dev's part.

I've suffered about 6 server disconnects, though, which makes me fear for the stability of the game. I hope it's day-one bugginess they can work out soon.

Yeah, those are in the "marker" settings, I think.

That's some funny shit right there.

I drowned my m12 backing off a cliff.

So far so good. my fps isn't consistent though. I usually run a consistent high teens to 20 fps with a 60ms ping. Now I range for 5 -50 (really!) fps with 110 ping.

Won all my 2x's though. I like it so far, well except for the PzIV nerf.

played a it before work. no diff in fps as i am still around 18-20 during action.

I do like seeing the damage done immediately rather than just a percentage. and the ability to drive down hills is nice.

I like the gun sounds and the track sounds, I play with head phones and you can really tell the difference...they did a lot of work on the audio in this game....the people in the tanks also say some new things as well.

I however think that it is a little more real to me, I however did not see anyone jumping on top of other tanks so I may change my mind....unless the person that does the jumping takes crew and susp damage as well...they both should be stuck IMHO.

I was lucky last night, but the night before i could not stay connected....I think last night I dropped twice....but I only played for about 30min to an hour.

Over all I think I am going to like it. I will not get to play much till sunday....just a few games here and there till then.

I am intrested in if anyone sees any difference using the camo paint....I am thinking about it for a few tanks....TD's actually...just not sure if I want to pony up for it.....my Tier III is not to bad, but the tier VII it gets a little spendy....and that kind of ticks me off, make the guys that put the time into the game to advance pay more....it should be the same.

I think I'm going to add camo to the Stug. Then hide in plain sight. The 88 in the 3001 and 3601 seems to hit a bit harder too. I actually penetrated a Jagdpanther from the front last night. The 3601 seems to have slowed down though.

I played the M26 twice and didn't die. They 90 also seems to hit a little harder. I used to bounce of everything, heck I bounced 5 shots off a T 50 not too long ago.

The Matilda Black Prince seems like it would be a disappointment. same gun as the church with less hit points and slower? I was hoping for the Churchill Black Prince, same tank, but with the QF17 pounder in it. Same gun that's on that French tank destroyer. clicky

I got Hunter in the E8 last night. You have to kill 100 German tanks to get it. i snuck up on a tiger II in Himmelsdorf and pumped 3 shots into his rear before he swung his gun around to miss one shot and I killed him on the 4th

That made me angry as well....they should have done the Churchill...you know the one they actually made....I think it would have worked, but on the other hand they may be saving some things for the up and coming british line.

It will be intresting to see how they do the existing british tanks....will they go away from the soviet side.....because as you know when you read the WOT info on them....most of them sank, they did not use american planes, or trucks as well....or gas....all that stuff sank as well, the soviets won the war all by themself.....where is the roll eyes smilie?
