    General information:
    [release] Interesting in playing a completely free-to-play tank MMO? There is no need to look further, World of Tanks has just hit closed beta! If you have the slightest interest in tanks or MMO's, I'm sure this game will be a hit for you! Scroll down on how you can grab a closed beta key and join the facepunch community of WoT!

    About the game:
    World of Tanks is a team-based massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored warfare. Throw yourself into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world. Your arsenal includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, and the Soviet Union, carefully detailed with historical accuracy.

    A flexible system of authentic vehicle upgrade and development allows you to try any of the vehicles and weapons in the game. Whether you prefer to exhaust your foes with fast and maneuverable light tanks, make deep breaches in enemy lines with all-purpose medium tanks, use the force of giant tanks to eliminate opposing armored forces, or become a heavy sniper with long-range howitzers, each unit type has its own advantages and can be extremely effective when operated by a true tank ace.

    But being a great tank commander alone isn't enough to win! In the World of Tanks, it’s all about teamwork. Victory is achieved by combining your combat skills with those of the other members of your team, each playing their own role on the battlefield. Just add your favorite strategy to build your own iron empire and manifest the indisputable authority of the tank power!

    Leopards are annoying. They're always flanking me and going faster than my turret can turn.

    I end up shooting their tracks and killing them, though.

    Fuck Panzer 3. I can't take it on a fight with T-28, because it takes 3 forevers to reload my cannon, that does little to no damage, despite the penetrative power.

    I like it when tank destroyers try to circle around me.

    It's like they don't realize that only works when you have a turret.

    Fuckers turn on the spot very fast, actually. You, on the other hand, have to spin the turret, which throws you off even more.

    I remember helping taking down a Stug 3. However, he backed up in a way, he got me stuck in a building. Although that did allow me to survive that fight.

    T-28 is a METAL BAWKS.

    They keep trying to take away my metal bawkses. :(

    But yeah, I hope that infantry will be relevant in the future. T-35 and T-28 seem to me, like awesome combine harvesters, when it comes to infantry. At least due to "Machineguns, Machineguns Everywhere" design.

    Building my leopard crews skills up to 100% before stepping up to medium tanks.

    I can't get enough of my regular T-34 because it's such a TANK HUNTER KILLER.

    I wish you were awarded more if you stuck with the same tank instead of advancing, if not how's the game going to play if everyone has a heavy tank?

    Once you get the 100mm on the T-34/85, Cuckoo, everything gets so much better. Also today I smoked some weed and accidentally bought an SU-85. That's 350k down the drain.

    you get more for killing tanks of higher tiers than you. So yes you earn more if you stay with that tank.

    You get $$$ and experience from damaging them, killing doesn't matter as long as you damage the tank.

    Damage better tanks and you get more $$$ and experience.

    The cheap one or the expensive one?

    Everyone have a fucking medium tank and I'm still stuck with light tanks. Sucks for me.
