War Thunder Update and General Thread


#201

Just finished downloading it now :slight_smile:


#202

They’ve done some nice tweaks to some of the basic UI operations.

The protection analysis now lets you simulate incoming shots to show EXACTLY how a round will react against your tank when you’re looking at it in the hangar, which is a nice addition.

They’ve also implemented the sonic boom from jets and it fucking sounds ace! :smiley:


#203

Yeah the sounds are great. Been watching phly play some.


#204

So, the christmas festivities are beginning soon and there are some nice Premium tanks and planes up for grabs :slight_smile:

Had a fun couple of Tier V / VI rounds this evening.
Took out a T-10M (beastly Russian heavy) and a AH-1Z helicopter using the Bagel Panzer. Still getting to grips with it. I am constantly playing too gung-ho for higher tiers!


#207

Yeah high tier you have to take more time :slight_smile:
I think I’m getting bored of the boats. Not played them for ages. Might go back to tenks and get past tier 3


#208

@st00kz Planes dear boy, planes is where it’s at. Surely sonic booms is what you should be aiming for ?


#209

@RoGuE I was waiting for your comment lol. You know what…I probably will as not touched them for well over 2 years maybe


#210

So a bunch of my mates from uni have started a whatsapp gaming thread and they’ve leaned towards War Thunder as their pick up n play title :smiley:

I’m gonna try get them to come onto the forums, but I can’t promise much.

Had a few games yesterday at Tier 1 with them and had a good laugh. Then we did a custom battle with an M3A1 Stuart and an LVT (both Tier 1) against my Tier 6 Bagel Panzer :smile: They did actually manage to kill the bagel once, but only because the Stuart managed to get stuck under my lower glaices and put 15 rounds though the hull :smiley:


#211

Must admit i am having fun with the T1 planes again but im missing the tatical side of playing the tanks


#212

Aye, that’s what always interests me more about the ground forces, there’s just that bit more variety to the game.

Got a bastard of a jumbo in front of you and you can’t pen the bastard? Figure out a way to outflank him!


#213

I’m the opposite. More often than not tanks is just me getting mullered by tanks of a much higher tier. Where-as in planes I get to kill planes a couple tiers above, if I fly right…


#214

Saddle up with me partner, I’ll have you slaying tanks in no time :slight_smile:


#215

We tried that man! I kept getting stuck in mud! Shit tanks lol


#216

I’m going to put up a post this week about the typical places to aim for for things up to Tier 3.

I just unlocked the TAM for the germans… only cost me 2.5 million to buy, train and skill :sweat_smile:


#217

I have downloaded the thing! Perhaps, one day, I might even get around to playing the thing!
