War Thunder Update and General Thread

Yep. Dloaded already at work.

And yeah…there are sooo many tweeks that they keep doing to make it a great game


#100

It’s the fact that they find the actual manuals and historical documents for each vehicle type and operational parameters for each one that I find awesome. Oh, actually, the Tiger II P had 12 more horsepower than we had in game, so we changed that. :smiley:

2 days ago I completed 3 YEARS of logins… Thank you @st00kz nd @RoGuE :smiley:

Tomorrow will be 1,100 days!

I’ve been grinding away on the French units now for the last couple of weeks. Finally into a full Tier III lineup and just started on Tier IV. There are some massive jumps in terms of their BR availability, but they have some pretty nifty stuff to be honest. Also, their Tier III light tank is awesome. 67Km/h at BR 3.7? Oh yeah!


#102

Nice one matey.

Yeah I’ve finished the TIII French and have done back to the Yanks to complete all the upgrades they added. Forgot how much fun low tier was :slight_smile:


#103

Low-Tier Frenchies are fucking shite. Utter, useless shite. Slow as treacle, turret speeds of an immobile coconut, armour pen of a rubber duck. Frustrated the hell out of me!

Low-tier generally is epic. Even the Japanese have things made out of papier maché but they hit hard. Yanks are fast as a Raver on ectasy and the germans are just all-round awesome.

I’m still grinding higher-Tier V for the yanks but damn it’s hard to get good kills against some things. The Leopard 2K and Abrams are horrific to go up against, never mind the Stalinium-armoured Ruskies.

There’s only the new Leopard 2A1 left to research for the Germans and they’re finished, again.

Tier III at BR 4.3 is where it’s at I think. It’s such a fun BR to fight at.


#104

Yeah that’s the br I was looking at to play. Keep researching the high tier stuff and take them out for a spin but will keep playing the tier 3 stuff for the fun factor


#105

If you get lucky and are actually the higher BR player in a “4.3” match, the Wirbelwind can utterly annihilate the enemy, so long as you can get past T-34’s, but even they can fall to you if you can get to their side. They’ve changed the ammo loadout though, so that there are no purely APCR round for the Wibbel.


#106

Yeah the bloody wurle. The sound it make s has me running for cover no matter what I’m in. And didn’t know they changed the ammo. That’s interesting


#107

Yeah, they changed the final ammo type from HVAP-T (High Velocity Armour Piercing Tracer) to HVAP-T / API-T (Armour Piercing Incendiary Tracer).

The HVAP has an AP value of about 64mm at 10m. Then again, you have 4 barrels firing off 80 rounds in about 3 seconds, so that’s still alot of firepower.


#108

@st00kz dude, I’m unexpectedly away an extra night. Could you do my login for me please? :slightly_smiling_face:


#109

Today’s one? Yeah np buddy


#110

@st00kz Dude, any chance you can do my login on Wednesday please? :slight_smile:

I’m still waiting on my laptop to be delivered.


#111

NP matey. got you sorted


#112

So day 600 logged :smiley:
And i get a 500 SL booster :confused:


#113

Hey, that means you can afford more stuff! :smiley:

Get a good round and you’re talking 60-100K! That ain’t anything to frown at!

I honestly wish I could donate some SL to folk. I’m sitting on 15.8 Million at the moment.


#114

Yeah that is true. I was on about 7-8 mil but spent a load on crew training as im going back through the smaller tiers gettting the crew updates and other little mods they bought in ages ago


#115

So, been loving the naval side of things lately, but I think it’s time to dip my toes back into tanks again, maybe even some air time! :open_mouth:

New premium and hard to get units up for grabs between now and the 8th of September.

Get stuck in folks!


#116

Ummm i should really get some air time in too.

As for the events…ive learnt that i do not have enough time to get these done :frowning:


#117

Thankfully, there’s only 3 levels of achievements for the tanker gift. It’s only a Tier 1 wheeled Skudfuck (SkdFz whatever) with what looks like the cannon off a Panzer IV F1.


#118

Yes you both bloody well should get some air time!!! And drag Jesticles along too
