Default War Thunder

War Thunder:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQkU-zNMeVU

A new MMO centred around WW2 planes. In open beta now and quite polished. It's very good, I've become quite hooked. Think World of Tanks, just based in the air.

Servers are still all based in the EU and US, but surprisingly there's bugger all lag. Plays very well. Will be going Free to Play once out of the Beta stage.

A 6 gig or so download, but well worth it.

Direct competitor to WoWP and absolutely blows it away.

There is no US server at the moment. It's EU and RU. But even with 400+ ping it still plays alot better than WoWP

Direct competitor to WoWP/WoT/WoBS

Unlike Wargamings three separate efforts, War Thunder will include all three branches into one game.

^ Thankyou

I'm seriously hooked on this. Great classical score, great graphics, great effects, and most importantly, heaps of fun.

Anyone who hasn't given it a crack yet, I thoroughly recommend it.

Is there a non-installer download (i.e just the whole thing in one go) available for the beta?

Download their launcher and there will be a grey button allowing you to get a torrent to download it in one go.

The launcher download was rather slow for me

The launcher download varied in speed for me. Ended up taking all about about 3 hours for me...

Just got it but won't let me login to the game.

Error 80130183: "Authorization error, please try again"

Nothing on the forums about that error code

That's strange? Quick idiot check, are you copy and pasting the password that was emailed to you after registration?

Tally Ho!

It starts getting a lot more fun once you get some better planes. My biggest gripe with the starter aircraft is their lack of punch. Two MG's just doesn't cut it!
