Ok I have a Question. I've played Games such as Battletanx and Campaign, and this seems like the logical successor to those games.

But, those two games had one major issue. Heavy guns with a slow Rate of fire where utterly useless. As the over the shoulder view meant it was damn near impossible to engage at range. Much better was a Light tank with a Rapid firing gun, so you could move in close fast, and then paste the target at point blank. In those trailers I've seen Light tanks doing that sort of move. how do you compensate the larger gun armed vehicles?

listy, there are two features to compensate this, the first is the fact that possibly the only thing capable of destroying a heavy tank is another heavy tank, a powerful tank destroyer or artillery.

the second is "Auto-Aim" this lets the computer aim for you and has a 50:50 ish chance of hitting something.

oh and you can zoom

Ahh so you can go to "scope", like you would in an FPS (which this has marked similarities too ).

So is this done based to the gun performance or a more of a class system? By this I mean are all tanks different by stat line, or are they just skins for different levels of tank. If you get what I mean?

all tanks have differnt stats, the major ones being armour, speed and gun powah.

the tanks go up in teirs, with each one more powerful than the next, a tier 4 can easily destroy a teir 3-1 and can damage a teir 5-6 but anything tougher than that and its screwed.

its hard to explain.

Try me I've got limited time, disk space and already have an MMO to play.

So do I want to download this one for a crack or not? That's what I'm trying to decide.

the games last about 5 minutes, the (currently free) premium tanks allow you to get straight into the more exciting high level action+level up your tanks faster and its only a 1 gig download.

Well, it's been running a while, so who all is playing regularly?

I'm hooked, it's just too bad they call it an MMO. Wen I first saw that bit I scoffed and closed the tab; I doubt I'm the only one.

Kinda lost interest, but that's how I am with games: a repeating cycle of obsession followed by indifference. XD I'm "PanzerschreckLeopard"

I go through cycles, too. Still, this one is fun. Let us know if you start gaming with it again.
