I'm installing the client now & shopping for a joystick & throttle combo-

I believe I may take a break for a few weeks, there is only so much I can take. In the last week I have had below a 40% win rate and the wins I do have are close ones while the losses are blow outs. I think it is related to the new patch, but it still annoys the hell out of me.

The guys in my clan are discovering "War Thunder" and they are liking it much better than world of war planes.

No Sam! Who cares about numbers? If it's still fun, keep playing!

Oh sure, take off long enough for me to grind xp and credits, and come back in time to goad me into my next tank. I see your evil plan.

I like the WoWP beta just fine... however until they open the beta there are < 500 players on at a time so its difficult to find matches larger than 5 on 5.

War Thunder has 10,000+ players on at a time making it much more viable.

If your into flight sims, War Thunder is done by many of the same people that did IL-2 Sturmovich. ( one of the best ww2 flight sims ever ).

Tier 5 matches seem the most f'd up by the recent patches because of all the DD ( Dickhead Derp, Douchebag Derp, Dumbass Derp, take your pick ) players out there.

Tier 5 - 8 are the screwed up matches right now from what I have seen.

FYI, the next tank is the Tier 10 above the at-7....
