Just thought I'd throw out a thread about this game, as it's not very well known yet but is extremely fun (in my opinion
World of Tanks
It's still in beta at the moment (there should still be keys available), with the full release being planned for late February. Basically, the whole
idea of the game is to pit players against eachother in an incredible variety of tanks from the WWII era. It has a great deal of realism in terms of
physics and vehicle damage, although historical accuracy was not a goal for the developers. It's not uncommon to see a German Tiger II fighting
alongside a Soviet KV-3 or an American M6. Of course, theres also a wide range of tank destroyers and artillery available for each nationality, along
with an incredible range of other tanks.
It also has an MMO aspect to it, in that there is a persistent upgrade system. You can unlock additional parts to upgrade a tank by using it in battle
to gain XP, which is done in a number of ways such as scouting out enemy vehicles, damaging and destroying enemy vehicles and capturing the enemy
Feel free to post any questions about it here, I'll be happy to help if I can.
