This game can be addicting. I said the same thing wtf tank MMO, then i played it for awile and it's cool. It's fun to pick a fast moving tank and scout out all the enemies artillary so our side can hit them.

It's not an MMO by any stretch of the imagination. More of an Unreal Tournament with XP and skills/upgrades.

But I love it. I play every day. A great game when you have 20 minutes of PC time. And it has been a while since a game has had me shouting at my teammates and myself.

Game is a freakin' riot. Try it; like it; love it. You have no excuse, it's free!

Haven't been this excited about a F2P game since League of Legends.

Sure, it's not an MMO, but who cares. Awesome game is awesome.

Guys. The mmo parts are coming. Patience.....
Gameplay=done
Content=not even close.
The only reason the Russian WoT went to release is because the Russians don't care and Wargaming figured why not get an income stream.

As others have mentioned, I was skeptical about a solely tracked vehicle based MMO. It just sounds strange. But after playing, It is not only addictive, but more entertaining that a FFP shooter with vehicles or MMO's with "characters".

I enjoy the fact, which seemed strange at first, that instead of a character you have "stuff". The variety that you can obtain keeps it interesting as well. Unless you have every tank, there will always be more "stuff". I can't speak for anyone else, but I like getting "stuff" in a game, and this game skips the "character" middle-man and goes straight to the "stuff". You don't have to decide what "stuff" is going to wear today, or any of the other crap that those of us that have wasted many hours on mmorpg's do instead of actually play.

Aside from "stuff" the game-play is amazingly simple, yet your strategy, tactics and application of these in game can be as complex as you want. Throw critical hits, crew and component damage in, and you NEVER know for sure what will happen to you or your opponent. It's fun for a spare 20 minutes, or 20 hours. Achievements are cool also. They drive you to attempt certain tasks/goals, while still maintaining team cohesiveness. Basically, this game is full of Awesome all around. Can't wait for even more "stuff", and more Awesome.

I would go so far and call this a MMO (massive multiplayer online) because thats what it is. What the suffix (ie: RPG, FPS, RTS etc,) of this MMO is can be discussed for now though

Other than that; been playing WoT for a while and it's just impressive, get a couple of friends together, organise yourself through a third party voice program and you're all set for either glorious victories or horrible defeats. Real life armored combat tactics can easily be simulated and is far superior to the "rush 'em" play style of others. Doesn't matter how fast, heavily armored, or hidden you are, without cover, forward scouts and a team to back you up, you have a tendency to lose fast.

So yeah, this game makes it fun to be a civilian again!
