Default World of tanks Or War thunder

Any of you guys here play either of those games? Been looking for platoon mates in those games specially for weekend play when I actually have time.

I don't play WOT because of the revenue model (being able to buy upgrades for cash). I hadn't heard of War Thunder but just checked out the site. It kind of looks like they will have the same kind of deal. Is that what it looks like to you?

I'm on a short hiatus right now (licking my wounds), but I play Aces High.

WT is basically the same revenue model but it is far less "pay to win,' than WOT. There are no gold rounds WT is far more "pay to be lazy" On full realism it is much closer to a simulator on historic or arcade you're basically playing WOT in the air, but it is still fun and many of the same tactics still apply especially on historic.

I haven't really seen WOT be that bad though. You can still pay silver for gold rounds (albeit it is expensive) and some of those premium tanks are rather nice, but I don't find myself having many issues stomping pay tankers. The wallet warriors are usually pretty crap at the game.

The prop fighter era is fairly heavily slanted towards the Germans though...so fair warning there.

Used to play WoT. Got tired of it. I haven't tried Aces High and never heard of WT.

You run into one of those terrible grind tanks and rage quit? Some of those things are so rage inducing it isn't funny.

I've just about quit playing any game online. Just tired of the 7 year olds and keyboard warriors.

I used to lead a clan in an online gaming league Q2, Q3, CS. We had servers co-located in a few geographic locations, rented them out for matches. We had public servers running as well. We had huge (for the day)free lan parties and people from around the country came.

Fun times in the height of my geekdom.

Yeah the maturity level on those things is pretty bad sometimes, but I always just kept my head down and let my gun do the trolling.

That's a good plan Every once in awhile I'll jump online and play something but its not very often these days. Life get's in the way I typically have less than an hour to myself. The AI has gotten so much better in newer games that I just as soon battle them. No BS.

Aces High is an acquired taste. There is no AI to speak of, it's just a "here's a battlefield, go fight" MMO based upon an old but very good flight simulator. The really good thing about it is that there are very few kids, and those that do leak in don't generally last long. The competition in-game is other-worldly. It's my impression that most players are over 40, and many are retired military, pilots, or aviation professionals. If you are a "natural" and accustomed to being amongst the elite with little comparative effort, this game will humble you. Months of effort will get my skill set up to the point I'm in the top 10% monthly. Going further will require displacing people with skill levels I've never run into in gaming, and not kids...not a one in the top ranks.

I'll take a look at WT. Last few weeks I've been playing SH4 and WIC against the AI. I suppose it's time to stick my head back in MMO land.
