The Fourth of July marks a significant and widely celebrated date in the history of the United States of America. Around the world, this is the day that is commonly known and referred to as “Independence Day”.

Commemorating the signing, adoption, and publication of the Declaration of Independence, which ultimately marked their separation from The Kingdom of Great Britain, Independence Day is a federal holiday in the US, however, it was on the 2nd of July in 1776 that the Thirteen Colonies legally separated, after the Second Continental Congress voted in favour of this decision. The Declaration had been in preparation and writing by Thomas Jefferson and the Committee of Five since June 11th that same year, and was published two days later. It is famously known to specifically outline that all men are born equal, and that they have the right to choose their own government. It is on these ideals that American democracy was instituted.

The first documented celebration of Independence Day was the Bristol Fourth of July Parade, in Bristol, Rhode Island. It started in 1785, and continues as ongoing even today. Floats of various themes, and of course, fireworks, are well known to accompany modern celebrations. Macy’s in New York hosts the biggest fireworks display of all, with over 75,000 lbs lighting up the sky for around half an hour.

[Event] The Battle of Kursk



From 15.00 GMT on July 3rd to 07.00 GMT on July 6th, 2015
Take part in our “Battle of Kursk” event with historical setups from July 1943,
including AB Domination ground vehicle battles and SB ‘Battle of Kursk’ combined battles.


The Battle of Kursk was one of the largest armoured battles, and quite possibly the largest single air battle, in history. This event is identified as a true decisive battle, taking place after both the Germans and Soviets had awaited a major confrontation when stalemate had eventuated in previous conflicts. The battle would occur near Kursk, a town on the Moscow-Rostov railway located in Southern Russia. The Germans referred to the battle as “Operation Citadel”, while the Soviets used two names: “Operation Kutuzov” to refer to the defensive side of the conflict, and “Operation Polkovodets Rumjantsev” for the offence.

The battle began on the 4th of July, with Junkers Ju87 Stukas leading the attack by strafing the tops of lightly armoured Soviet tanks. This was followed by barrages of artillery. The 2nd SS Panzer Corps, 3rd Panzer Corps, and the 11th Panzer Division, stormed Soviet positions. Throughout this day, they continued to make advances, however, Soviet forces put up considerable resistance and were able to slow the advance of the German forces. Casualties mounted for both sides, and surprisingly, Hitler withdrew part of the German forces to reinforce operations in Italy in response to the Allies’ successful landing in Sicily. With German strength weakened, Soviets were able to counter the German forces, liberating Oryol, Belgorod, and Kharkov after the Battle of Kursk.

Despite lacking a ‘clear-cut’ victory for the Soviet side, the Germans suffered a clear defeat. Following The Battle of Kursk, their plans for 1943 were in serious disarray, aggravated further by the opening of a new front in Italy. Both sides experienced heavy losses, but only the Soviets had the manpower and industrial capacity to fully recover.

When your wing gets ripped off:"WTF, ARE THESE WINGS MADE OUT OF PAPER, UNINSTALL!"
When you rip off an enemy's wing:"Pfft, I'm too good"

When you get matched with a plane 2 tiers higher than you:"F***, thx Gaijin"
When you get matched with a plane 2 tiers lower than you:"Poor guy maybe I won't go after him" (Said no one ever)

When somebody cleverly maneuvers you:"My plane sucks!!"
When you outmaneuver somebody:"Step up your game NOOB!

When you come across some USSR planes:"F****** Russian bias"

Joined America as a pilot.
Hours of practice and training.
Totally ready for realistic mode now.
Decided to become a bomber in realistic mode in Saipan.
Started out on an aircraft carrier.
Increased throttle.
Ohhhhh yeah ♥♥♥♥ just got real.
Wingspan was too wide for carrier.
Right wing hits the superstructure and falls off.
Oh ♥♥♥♥.
Bomber and pilot, along with three gunners, plunge into the ocean.
At the last second pilot thinks back to the girl back home, the one he left behind.
Drowns.
Have to wait 9 minutes for early death penalty.

30 minutes later, Victory in Saipan.

11/10 Will die for the American Cause again.

So, I just feel like this needs to go on record, and to actually say something about it. Now... I like WarThunder. It's probably one of the best online, WWII multiplayer flight-sims out there. American, Russian, British, German, and Japanese aircraft all make an appearance, so you can fly anything from the P-51 Mustang, to a Bf-109, and feel like you're actually in the cockpit. Heck, they've even recently added in tank combat, and are even going to be adding in naval warfare in the near future! That said, this game has gone completely down the toilets within the past several months.

Lemme explain a bit of the history of the game. Awhile ago, there were ten tiers, and you used to have a level with all of the different factions (American, Russian, British, etcetera), that determined what aircraft you could buy, due to their tier. Lets say you managed to get up to tier 4 in American aircraft, right? Well, that means you could buy any aircraft that's from tier one, to tier four, but if you're only tier 2 in Germany, you can only buy up to tier 2 German aircraft. Get the idea? Right, good. Recently, they completely revamped their level up and tier system, making it so there are only five tiers (which condenses it by quite a bit), but instead of unlocking the next tier of aircraft, you could only unlock one aircraft at a time. This isn't really a bad idea... but the problem is, this also nearly quadrupled the amount of time it will take to unlock every aircraft of a certain faction. What's worse, is they lowered (by a *lot*) the amount of experience you earn per assist or kill, forcing you to slow down your leveling even further, and enhancing the amount of free exp you get per match, which just entices you to buy their premium currency so you can use said free experience. It has turned this game into a slog of a grind that makes progression rediculously slow and boring.

The method of experience is by far one of my biggest gripes, I'll admit. It's a sickeningly underhanded method of encouraging players to spend money on the game, to buy the premium currency so you can spend your free experience. I don't usually mind "pay to progress" games, they're usually not too terrible, but this one is rediculous. It makes World of Tanks' progression seem like a breeze.

On to the next hit against this game: balancing. With the aforementioned condensing of the tier system into only five tiers, Gaijin thought it would be clever to introduce a Battle Rating system, to compensate, and to avoid having biplanes going up against end-of-war aircraft. This isn't really so bad, and it probably could have even been a good idea, had they implemented it correctly. You'd expect the Battle Rating system to be based off of the aircraft (or tank's) stats, and understanding that something like say... a P-40 Kittyhawk, or an F6F Hellcat would be a fair match against an A6M3 Zero, as they fought against one another in the actual war. Right? Well... that's a nice thought, but it's not how it works. See, their battle rating system is based entirely on the performance of the aircraft in player hands. The better someone does with an aircraft, the higher its battle rating within its own tier. This is inherently flawed; while someone might do well in an aircraft, that does not necessarily mean that it is able to go against something better than it, and still win. An A6M3 Zero can see fights against aircraft that were built several *years* after their initial development, because their battle ratings are similar. This is horribly wrong, and does not do anything to make a game fun, or balanced.

And, on to the last topic of my complaints. This is actually a rather common one amongst most of the player base, and - while I'm normally not one to base something on unfounded theories and accusations, you'd think that since the majority of WarThunder's player base seems to agree on this fact, it must be true to some degree.

Russian aircraft, and tanks, are given unfair advantages, and handicaps. Bet you thought I was going to say overpowered, huh? Well... I won't, because most of their aircraft did function to the specs given in WarThunder. However. This does not mean that their questionable damage models, unrealistic flight models and characteristics, and their absolutely rediculously favoritism'd battle ratings, are fair. To elaborate: Russian aircraft have damage models that seem to soak up a lot of damage without the plane actually registering said hits (players coin this term as the aircraft being made of "Stalinium"). Russian aircraft also have very... generous climb and turn rates, and this weird ability to dive faster, accelerate faster, and keep their momentum longer, than almost every aircraft, even those that were historically faster and better in a dive, a turn, or a climb (An Ishak monoplane from 1934 diving faster than an F4U Corsair, for example). And lastly, they seem to have this... preferential treatment when it comes to their battle rating (LA-5Fn having a battle rating of 4.0 even though it's a 1944 aircraft, whereas the P-51D-30 Mustang has a battle rating of 4.7, with worse stats, armament, and durability).

Despite all these bad things I said, WarThunder is still fun every now and then. Personally, I think it would be even better if they fixed all of the balancing issues and horribly slooooow progression they have going. It's gone from an interesting and exciting game, to a boring, slogfest of a grind that just isn't fun anymore. But who knows, maybe it's just me? Give it a try for yourself. Its worth the download. Just don't be surprised if it takes you several *weeks* to get out of the starting planes and/or tanks.
