RAPTOR192 23-Jan-2011 16:41

Counter-Strike with tanks. Simple controls. Complex'ish ballistics. Punishing damage system. Sadistic matchmaking.

I was put onto this from the COHO crowd, just got around to downloading it now. Looks pretty good.

Barb 23-Jan-2011 17:56

Been playing it for months, great game, can be a bit of a grind though.

Goes into open beta on the 27th iirc, no registration required. Planned for a late feb/early march release, including hardwipe.

Ashen 24-Jan-2011 12:58

Looks like they will be adding British,japs and french (yes french) tank trees :)

Most of us are on the Mumble VOIP server if you've got a headset and you fancy playing along.

Ashen 24-Jan-2011 13:20

Spanks 24-Jan-2011 14:17

This is also the channel where Spookie loses his rag and swears at pretty much every animal mineral and vegetable going right? :E

Drunk Goose has taken that mantle sometime ago.

Still can't understand the appeal of this game. Mostly because I've got the grace of a hippo doing ballet when driving a tank.

Ashen 24-Jan-2011 14:24

Drunk goose has and will be recorded for entertainment :)

mr_o 24-Jan-2011 15:44

Physics-wise how do the tanks handle? Arcade, battlefield-esque or sim?

Ashen 24-Jan-2011 15:52

Between the two tbh, damage model is pretty bloody harsh. The tanks all handle differently depending on what you have in it (i.e engines,cannon, tracks, radios all have weight). Medium tanks r speedy little buggers (40kph +) used for scouting for arty,heavys and tanks destroyers (depending on tanks these move around 25-40 kph).

Your Turret takes time to turn (again these can be upgraded) , reload times lead to quite a few brown trouser moments.

Its perfectly balanced between arcade and sim, yes it harsh but thankfully thats a good thing, the best way to describe it is CS with tanks, if you run around like a numpty your going to die very very quickly

unless tanks use wasd and a mouse pretty arcadey

Barb 24-Jan-2011 16:48

Hehehe, yeah the controls are pretty simple, but that's a plus in my opinion, gets you straight into the action.

Each tank has different armour thickness, on front, side, rear, gun mantlet etc. There are also three ammo types, AP, HE and ACPR(premium ammo, costs gold).

Plenty of tank choice with loads more planned and being added. Each tank can have 3 sets of equipment, which give various bonuses, Spall liner gives % to explosive resistance, rammer decreases load time, camo net a bonus to camoflage skills, you get the idea.

One of the most addictive games I've ever played.

Don't have a PC headset I'm afraid, but I may join you lot one day just to hear this abuse!

My nick is Veteran Tyke over there, so if you see a mahoosive IS-7 coming for ya, tis me!

Nomad 24-Jan-2011 17:18

got mic and speakers, join in

Lungboy 24-Jan-2011 17:25

I played ages ago for quite some time, but found it massively repetative and dull pretty quickly.

mr_o 24-Jan-2011 17:26

When I get my pc back count me in!

Ashen 24-Jan-2011 17:39

Most of the comedy comes form nomads clown car :P

jimbobaggies 24-Jan-2011 18:47

Just downloading now!

Karmic 24-Jan-2011 19:26

is this online multiplayer only or is there a single player?

Nomad 24-Jan-2011 20:03

yes, no, currently free so just have a go
