    World of Tanks is a PC only, free to play online game centered around fairly arcade like WWII tank combat with options to research better weapons, engines, armour and new tanks as you earn points playing.

    Heh I have my very own remote controlled tiger tank and loved the tank battles in CoH so I am a tank enthusiast.

    Downloading...

    How big is the game? I understand the install file is 1.1g.

    Hehe, I've day dreamed about getting those 3 meter scale car battery powered models. As is I've got a large collection of 1/72 scale stuff hidden away in some mates garage likely never to see use in a wargame again.

    I played the game and while it is fun, it has very high pings and it doesn't support widescreen.
    The game is drawn down to whoever has the best tank wins.

    Waste of quota in my opinion. Seems quite a few players already have some of the better tanks which can one shot my new pea shooter leaving it entirely unbalanced. I'll attempt to shoot at them but my shell either bounces off them doing no damage or misses entirely due to my ping.
    I'm uninstalling now. Concept is great but not the game.

    Anyone recommend a good tank game? I need a fix now...

    Each team starts off at either side of a medium sized map They then hunt all of the opposing team. Last team standing is the winner.

    Heh I am slowly building up my tank collection and eventually going bigger and bigger while tinkering with them at the same time since I am an engineer. You should try a 1/16th scale RC model. That is a good size I believe. I've seen the massive 6+ feet long tanks and they are crazy heh.

    I guess they are trying to make it as realistic as possible with light tanks. You are the scout for your tank company and you mainly battle the enemy's light tanks.

    I remember as a kid seeing a running Hannomag Sd.Kfz 251 half track for sale in one of those car trading magazines. Wish I had had a spare 40k to buy it. I was always a fan of German tanks as a kid due to their superiority and all the cool stories I read about the allies crapping themselves once they spotted a Tiger on the horizon.

    In regards to this game I still haven't had a go yet, still downloading and have an assignment to finish however from what I've read you can play in newb only games where almost everyone is zipping about in light tanks. Apparently you should also be spotting for your SP artillery if you are a light tank.
