Tank Tournament 4x4



Tankers!
We are glad to announce the first automated tank tournament to come to War Thunder!

In 4x4 format, you will be placed against other players on the maps “Poland” and “Ash river” either alone, or with your friends.

Participation in the tournament can be achieved by purchasing a ‘ticket’. The length in which it lasts will depend on your performance - the more you win, the longer it lasts. When your ticket expires you may purchase a new one. For each fifth victory, players will be rewarded with a battle trophy and can win a variety of prizes, including Golden Eagles and premium vehicles! The tournament is available in Arcade and Realistic modes. Aircraft events within these tank battles will be available in both modes.

Competitors will be able to choose and purchase the ticket that suits their desired tournament involvement. Be sure to check the available vehicles and rewards when selecting a tournament event in “events and tournaments” tab.

A first tournament is now available until 07:00 GMT on Monday, 30th of March.
Players will retain all the rewards they gained after the tournament is over.




Rules
  1. Each new participant begins with a rating of 0 and earns points through victories, depending on the other participants’ ratings.
  2. The matchmaker for the tournament will balance your opponents and allies based on your current rating.
  3. If you choose to play in a squad - your squad will be balanced in accordance with the squad-member who has the highest personal tournament rating.
  4. Tanks with Battle Ratings from 4.0 to 5.0 can participate, excluding premium tanks and those restricted by the organisers.
  5. If you don’t take part in the tournament for seven days, you will lose 10% of your accumulated rating value. After 14 days, you will lose another 10% so your rating will be 80% of the gained value.

Az eddigi legjobb világháborűs mmo, nekem több mint 600-700 órám van benne és még mai napig nem untam meg, repülös része a 3 játékmoddal jól ki van dolgozva, tankosnál pedig kb mindegy milyen játékmondban mész ott nem nagyon van különbség annyi hogy kevesebb segítséget kapsz a játéktól. Ebben a stílusban nincsen párja, se tankos se repülös részről.

War Thunder in a nutshell,

Planes;
When your pilot gets killed:"WTF I call hacks! This game sucks!"
When you kill the enemy pilot:"Take that sucker, I knew my CoD skills would work here."

When you get rammed:"Frickin noobs everywhere"
When you ram:"It's called a kamikaze brah"

When you get killed by rockets:"F******g rocket spammer,rockets are bs!"
When you get a rocket kill:"MWHAHAHAHA"

When you can't hit ground targets with a bomber:"I swear if those tanks stopped moving I would get them"
When you hit ground targets:"Guess I have to much skill, WW2 is sooooooo easy, I would have bombed every frickin tank"

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 to 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"
When you use a plane from the USSR:"Oh I'm sorry I thought the USSR was a country that fought and won with the Allies"

Tanks;

When you get flipped over:"Plz help, I'll give a free bj just PLEASE"
When you see somebody flipped over:"Sorry dude, I have losers to pwn"

When you get one-shotted:"FRICKIN HACKS AGAIN"
When you one-shot somebody:"Why do I have to aim so good man?"

When you're getting shot from some random place:"WALLHACKS"
When you're hitting somebody and they can't figure out where you are:"2ManyNewbs"

When someone calls an artillery strike on you:"S***, S***, S***!!!"
When you call an artillery strike on someone:"You better not run, you better not hide (You know the rest)"


10/10 Would still play despite all the times I raged :D

And Russian planes.

I have way more hours than Steam says, simply because I started playing before it was even on Steam. But thats not my point really.
I have probably put a thousand hours and several hundred dollars into this game, and if you had asked me 6 months ago if I recommneded it, I wouldve said yes, all the way. But now, the game is a broken mess that infuriates me more than it entertains me.
Where do I even begin?
Country bias is strong, being a Russian game, the Russian planes are incredibly overpowered, and dont even think about getting within a kilometer of a Russian tank.
The customer support base is terrible. Instead of rolling out tweaks and fixes that players have been asking for for over a year, they simply add more planes to the Russian tree and maybe a few to the others and further mess up the system that is so badly in need of balancing.
To do anything above tier 3 in anything short of a human life time you will need to pay for a premium account, and even then, you better play realistic battles (which in my opinion are not nearly as fun as Arcade), AND EVEN THEN you better have paid $20+ for a Premium Aircraft.
No, this game has just become too much of a "Pay to Win" cash cow for Gaijin, rather than focusing on making it a fun experience for everyone, no matter what country or game type someone wants to play.
I think the best line I've seen that descibes this game now is,
"Grind 'till you die...
or pay up."

*EDIT*

This may be a petty gripe, but I think it sums up how little the developers care about their user base. Most online games give stuff away for the Holiday season, right? Gaijin begs to differ. You can earn 2 very low tier vehicles.... if you complete 19 challanges that are released over 19 days. NINETEEN. And they are shoot down 30 planes in "inset plane here" and destroy 40 tanks in "insert tank here."
Not only are the rewards crap, the amount of work required and amount of time you have to grind is insane. No discounts on the overpriced planes, overpriced premium accounts, or overpriced premium currency have been offered either.
So Gaijin's "Merry Christmas" to their user base is basically a giant, grindy middle finger. A rather apt comparison to what the entire game has become over the last year.

I was a hardcore fan of this game. Initially when I acquired the hours on this game it was amazing. The aircraft where historically accurate and amazingly detailed. The gameplay was fun and teams were developing nicely. Now it’s a piece of trash. Everything has been nerved except anything Stalin would get sexually aroused by. The gameplay has become so unbalanced that the USSR team win realistic battles 90% of the time!! The combat ratings are so broken my tier 2 FW will be put against tier 4 aircraft which outperform it in every way other than fire power. The game has become unplayable and this is my 2nd and hoefully final rage quit.Finally I will say that this game has great allure, because of the detail and effort Gaijin put into the game. I cannot understand why they are ruining it with stupid issues such as a biased combat rating and buffing a particular team. You want to play as the USSR this game is 10/10. Play as any other team prepare to crash and burn. Enjoy!

Game used to be very fun, but it has turned into a monster grind. As others have stated, I don't mind them encouraging payment, but the prices are too high. I'm just glad I unlocked quite a few planes before it became this grind fest.

I hate to play the same tune as so many others, but unlike them I am taking my review and going a step further.

I'm a lover of history, from as ancient as Mayan and Aztec cultures to as modern as it can get when talking current news. I love to know why things happened, the reasons, the causes, the impacts upon how we see things today, and what it can mean for those who care to enjoy their history.

So, as I write this review, keep the words "Historical", "Accurate", and "Fair" in mind. Cause they'll be mentioned a lot.

Historical planes, tanks and ships, all clashing upon one battlefield that allows players to simultaneous and fairly enjoy how these various war machines of history would have performed under the accurate scrutiny of Gaijin's developers who no doubt have the best interest of this game at heart, right? But what game are we playing, if not War Thunder? A game advertised as historically accurate and fair to all countries in how they are represented historically to players? Knowing they're targetting both a large audience who -wants- a fun combat flight simulator game which boasts accuracy; and simultaneously knowing they're targetting the history buffs and adamant learners who want to gleefully roar through the skies as a P-47 Thunderbolt over 1940's Germany. Surely! They would want to represent the lives lost, the battles won, and the ingenuity of men and women of this war accurately, right?

Now, take every mention of those words I told you to notice before, and answer them with "No". This game was praised as the champion against other games like World of Tanks, where World of Tanks and it's corporate model is to force all players into mediocrity and a 50% win/loss range than to be fair (look up Greedy Goblin's World of Tanks article, then you will agree). Even I came in when War Thunder had almost one-quarter the number of planes is has now, and was boasted as being historically accurate.

Those days are long gone, I've put in well over 300 hours of my life trying to enjoy this game. The only times I authentically enjoyed this game is when I broke down and submitted to the mentality of my close friends who call this game by it's true name: "GLORIOUS SOVIET UNION COMRADE VICTORY SIMULATOR"*. By this, I mean, I started playing nothing but Soviet Russian planes, I watched in initial glee as my scores skyrocketted. I went from being the bottom 5 players to the top 5. Then the horror hit me. I was indoctrinated. I had spent cash to turn around from the planes I -wanted- to -desperately- enjoy, yet I can't due to the GSUCVS* and it's portrayal of Russian warplanes as nigh-unstoppable machines of complete devestation.

I spent cash to enjoy the best of the United States circa 1940's era planes I always wanted to fly; I spent cash and time to work up the German Luftwaffe planes, where I finally hit my peak into indoctrination. That is when I spent cash to play Soviet Russian planes like everyone else, just so my above-average flight skills aren't being held back because a single Russian plane can endure over 1000 rounds of .50 caliber anti-air machinegun fire. So my enjoyment and money spent on my "dud planes" with other factions was turned around and then I learned the "glory" of the GSUCVS*. It's taken me some time, it really has. But I can finally say, without the shadow of any doubt...

This game as made for Russians, by Russians, and most likely at gunpoint by Joseph Stalin himself, or at least by the specter of Stalin. The only hope to redeem this game would be to overhaul it, cut out the busywork of all the "prototype" and "testbed" planes that keep you from enjoying the plane you really want. Cut out the horribly overpowered and unbalaned and unfair Russian cheat engine for Russian planes. And lasty, to apologize to every player for their grievous wounds inflicted upon trying to represent "accurate" history.

Until then, I will not recommend this game unless you understand that it is NOT an accurate game, that it is a game made to pander towards old Soviet diehards who can't see Mother Russia as anything but completely indomitable and constantly producing instant-win scenarios. Play it, but do NOT spend your cash. Play it, but do NOT bother commenting on their EU/USA forums. They will simply mock you with sock puppets while they ban your forum account.

this game... was good. at one point the game was mostly balenced and playable, mostly. it was one of my most loved games and now its just horrible, grindy, repetetive and all round boring gaming experiance, even at low tiers it is obvious what planes dominate the sky *cough* russians *cough* . and you cant really argue with planes such as the Yak 9 T/K exsisting, which have really only been made more overpowered after "nerf". The problem is that it appears that they have made the grind to long to keep interest in playing, and they have made it clear that they have a biased towards planes and nations. i do no t recomend playing this game untill one of either things happen.
1: Matchmaker redesigned
2:they listen to the players who are PLAYING the game and giving CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM to help move the game forward, but i highly doubt that this will happen...

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.

Only play this game in short bursts. It is fun, but the game is unbalanced and frustrating to play.

This game used to be fun but now i have to fight Canberras introduced in 1954 with my Ki-84 (1944). We don't need new maps, new features, new op planes or useless gamemodes - we need to get rid of the horrible BR system.

This is an amazing game. Really! You will not find another game similar to this one. It is one based more on skill than anything else. No stupid reaction shots or super quick decision making. With one good shot, someone(Including you) can be killed. If not, it may take minutes to destroy a wing or light them on fire. But, then the downsides come in. Recently, they completely overhalled the matchmaking system. Maybe you've heard. They collapsed the 20 teir system into 5 teirs. And if that weren't bad enough, they changed the way of getting planes as well. Instead of leveling up a teir, which may give you 2-3 planes at once, they made it so that you "research" each plane at a time. This makes it unbelievably grindy. in the end, it seems like a cheap way to get more people to buy in game "golden eagles" to boost research. WIth true FTP, you will be spending hours and hours just to get a planes in low teir. If you love to grind for hours with the same planes and no real sign of progression, this is the perfect game for you. I continue to play just in hopes they change it. But as for 10-19-2014, they haven't.

Update on 12-21-2014
As of the new update...I am speechless. Gaijin realy, really hates this game. They, for some reason, feel so pressured to release American tanks that they have not a care in the world for anything else. They put in an under-teired plane here, another OP plane over there... You get the point. The banshee...No comment. They feel that a plane that has a rediculous energy retention and almost a thousand kph top speed belongs in the lowest teir of jets. Flown correctly(not that hard) a person can defeat a whole team of German jets. The new British jet doesn't even have a finished flight model. And obviously the worst of all, they have delayed the implication of the proposed "fix" to the battle rating system. That would have made the game half decent again...maybe. But it doesn't matter if they keep the current cash cow of a system they currently have. I rarely...RARELY play this game anymore. It just isn't fun. I have tried realistic battles, and those are better, but seeing planes on my team that are 2 teirs under me when playing just... just isn't fair for them. Arcade, which i presume most players will spend most of their time in, just feels like a huge cluster ♥♥♥♥. All in all, I don't recomment even downloading this game at it's current state. Don't fall for the huge money trap that is War Thunder.
