Heh, love the trailer!  Yes, I will keep an eye out for this as well.  Looks like just German vs. Russian and you can fight other tanks of your nationality.

This will only be good if you can crew the tank as a group.  If that's possible, I'm in.

Necro!

New teaser is up, and it heavily winks at the EVE crowd.

By the way, I am following the development quite a bit and the new interview (part 1 - part 2) says a few interesting things: it'll be f2p with microtransactions, it will have about 40 differrent tanks from different countries each with a bunch of historically accurate modification and customization options, environment will be mostrly destructable and it will have persistent clanwars.

Quote

ZAM: Clan Wars sounds amazing. Can one clan actually take over the world? Why can a clan attack only once per day? How do you defend your clan provinces if you're not online?

Zhivets: The World of Tanks Global map will represent the entire world divided into hundreds and thousands of provinces, so we believe that it is simply impossible for one clan to establish control over all of those territories. We are looking forward to having hundreds of clans fighting for domination on the global map, that's why the situation with one superior clan seems hardly possible.
Each clan has its so-called chips, and their number is equal to the number of high-level players accepted into the clan. By shifting those chips over neighboring territories, the clan puts claims for them.
One clan can claim for a number of territories during a day, but only once per day for one specific territory. Just imagine what would happen if multiple clans attacked endlessly one and the same territory one after another! We've limited the number of attacks at one specific territory to one, as it would be immensely troublesome for a defending side to repel endless assaults from many clans.
All the battles take place according to the prime time of the territory under attack. Thus, if a battle is arranged for the time between 7-11p.m, the defending clan is free to choose the most suitable time for them in this time span to be online and to repel.

I've been following this one for a bit and it's looking way better than I anticipated. Getting a hard on for it. And those teasers poking fun at other games? THAT is how you tweak another MMO company, not a fucking retarded interview saying steak and hamburgers durrrrr or hiring a bald midget to burn out his vocal chords screaming about something something everywhere. Those videos are hilarious.

I was actually thinking something similar, some massive guild will probably devote themselves to it just to fuck with them now.

It bugs me that all the tanks in the game play footage all seem to have stabilizers equal to modern day tanks.  I'm pretty sure that WW2 tank battles weren't characterized by massive groups of tanks circle strafing to victory.

The actual gameplay is totally different than what's implied by the trailers, though.

Yeah. Mobile artillery I like, I gotta question the accuracy of a moving tank firing its main cannon. Of course, that said, I loved the Vanny in Planetside. Fagriders never stood a chance.

Accuracy while moving should be shit.  I'd bet it doesn't play that way.

It should be shit unless they're going for an arcade feel which seems to be exactly what they're doing. I don't see an issue with that.

Arcade type tank battles are nothing more than your standard FPS with a new player skin on it.  How is that possibly interesting?  I guess you get a few new maps, different sound effects, and new buttons to mash?

You're missing the point. You're bitching that something doesn't look like a hyper realistic tank simulator when it's not trying to be that. If it's not interesting to you that's fine. EQ wasn't interesting to me but I didn't post in every EQ thread asking why it wasn't like Tribes.

I don't think I'm missing the point.  Apparently disagreeing with you means that I'm doing it wrong?  I didn't bitch about the game, say it sucks, or whine about how it wasn't Robot Jesus.  I just wondered what was so exciting about a reskinned FPS.

Point taken.  

For the record, my point wasn't about what I'm looking for.  I'm just trying to understand what's exciting about taking a standard FPS, reskinning it, and slowing the action down a tad.  If this game offers something novel from a tactical standpoint, that might make it interesting.  What is this game bringing to the table that isn't already available?

It's not out yet or I'd give a yea or nay. As it is, it may be a reskinned shooter with tanks. Maybe some firing arc issues and turret movement independent of forward movement. Given how many shooters people buy in a given year I'm okay with that as it's bound to be greater than the difference between Unreal Tournament and Quake.

If I was looking for a hyper realistic simulator I'd get this http://www.steelbeasts.com/  I'd just like a game that had a different feel than standard MMO PVP, maybe it will play totally different than the tournament video but my experience with MMOs doesn't lead me to think so.

That's awesome.  I laughed for a while about that one.

If it's fun, I'll play it.  I just have a bad feeling about it being the same kind of lame tactics that drive me away from most FPS games.  Ok, that and my lack of FPS twitch skill drives me away.
