[In Development] Location Normandy

The Normandy landings in the summer of 1944 were also called “the opening of a second front in Europe”. American, British and Canadian troops attacked fortifications on the shores of fascist-occupied France. We present an in-game location based on this large-scale historical event.



The action unfolds on the coast of the English Channel in northern Normandy. The location is widely varied, and not just because the battles take place at sea, in the air and on the ground. Its uniqueness is in the geography of Normandy. On one side is a beach facing the Channel with fortified positions, and on the other is rural countryside with neat farmers' cottages, hedgerows, villages and fields. In between all of this, is a town ravaged by war. On a single battle map, three completely different types of areas have been combined, each with its own character and gameplay.

The allies attacking from the coast must overcome the powerful fortifications on the beach. A blockade of barrage balloons hinders aircraft attempting to support ground forces and landing troops.

So-called “bocages” – hedgerows which protect the local farmers from the ocean winds – hinder the advancement of ground forces.



These walls of vegetation lend an element of surprise to the game – you can encounter an enemy ambush anywhere. Trenches, ditches, fields, altitude variations – the entire topography of the zone is built in such a way as to provide freedom to maneuver even in open areas by using the lay of the land.



Every last object in this location has been based on real history.

Memorable landmarks are distributed throughout the location, helping players to determine their location and route. Please note that this location is still in development, and the screenshots shown may differ from the final version of the Normandy map.

[In Development] M3 75 mm GMC and Ki-21-1ko

In the upcoming "Weapons of Victory" update, will be able to get a variety of new vehicles. Fans of japanese aviation can try out the Ki-21-1ko first rank bomber. We have also prepared a half-track self-propelled artillery vehicle which will be located on the first rank in the US branch - The Diamond T (Autocar) M3 75 mm GMC.

Diamond T(Autocar) M3 75 mm GMC



Vyacheslav "BVV_d" Bulannikov, Game Designer:​
A self-propelled artillery system based on the half-tracked M3 transporter armed with a 75mm M1897A4 gun. This vehicle was a slightly improved version of the ACS T12 75mm GMC and was created as a light tank destroyer. Despite the relatively senior age of the gun (this gun was a modification of the French 75 mle 1897, and as you can see from the name - its service began in the 19th century), it had good ballistics, it was a little weaker than the Sherman 75mm cannons, and could quite confidently defeat medium tanks at the start of the war. In our game, this self-propelled artillery has a good dynamic, is powerful, compared to similarly ranked vehicle weapons, but it has weak armour protection, so use it carefully - do not put yourself under direct enemy fire, since even machinegun fire is dangerous to it.





Svetlana Smirnova, Artist:​
This self-propelled unit is not one to stand out from any others with its design features - on this M3 self-propelled vehicle, a field gun of 75 mm calibre has been installed. A portion of the ammunition was placed below the gun carriage and the rest of it was placed in the floor of the fighting compartment. The vehicle was equipped with a gun shield of box-shaped form - they were flat previously which proved insufficient protection for a crew in combat.

Ki-21-1ko



This aircraft has a maximum bomb load of 1000 kg, with different presets: 20x50 kg Type 94 bombs (four of them on external pylons); 10x100 kg Type 94 or Type 3 bombs (one of them on the external pylon); 4 x 250 kg Type 92 bombs; 2x500 kg Type 92 bombs. The defensive armament of the aircraft is two 7.7mm Te-1 machineguns; and an army twin-barreled 7.7 mm Type 89 "special" machine gun.

Kirill "Lassar" Vostretsov, Game Designer:
The first production army bomber of the Ki-21 line. Most clearly manifested itself with combat operations in China. Despite the common problem for all bombers at the time: weak defensive armament, no protection for the crew or the fuel tanks, a small bomb load - at the same time it had a great range of flight and speed in comparison with all existing aircraft of similar type around the world.





Yuri Titarev, Artist:
With a relatively small size for a bomber, the polygon count for this model is one of the highest in the game, almost 87,000 polygons. This is due to the fact that a lot of attention was paid to creating the smooth, rounded shapes with this aircraft, typical of Japanese aviation. This aircraft has almost no sharp edges, all the elements are bound, polished and blended. Consequently, it was necessary to greatly increase the density of the mesh model to get smooth shading on any areas that were glazed.

Also, an interesting feature of this aircraft was its landing flaps control system. Each plate consists of the 11 pieces, each of which has its own animation.

War Thunder was actually a pretty good and entertaining game and I really enjoyed playing it, until they patched it and implemented the research thing. That completely screwed up a game that I really liked.

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)"

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.

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.

Many people have said this in below reviews, but i'll make this short and brief on a critical issue, which will expand into a full review as time passes. Honestly i'm writing this because the War Thunder forums are run by a very strict set of rules that dont really allow much actual discussion outside of vicious attacks against a dissatisfied playerbase by elitist, relatively new players, so I cant even post a mild suggestion that something is wrong with the staff as there is nowhere to put it within the rules.

The game's moderators, forum and community suck ♥♥♥. It takes a very Russian view on the rights of the consumer when it comes to moderating.

This is the reason why so many of the old guard, players who have been around since 2012, have left. People who play the game for a long time usually like to participate in the community to help the game grow. But often they are sensible people, and in Gaijin's view those people can "disrupt new players experience" with vile topics like "Gaijin, can you please fix the netcode?" (banned and hidden, 3/14/2014) and "Beta is not an excuse" (locked and hidden 9/08/2014). But who are the people that protect us from these disruptive and evil comments?


http://puu.sh/g5NqW/5c217d7d6d.jpg


25 Year old, foreign-speaking Brony moderators. Let's elaborate on these issues using this single puush image as a base.

The first and most obvious problem that will strike you from this image is that this person is a 25-year-old brony and has moderator powers. Take from that as you will. If you are a sentient human being right off the bat you will feel a shiver down your spine that these are the people who manage your gaming experience in War Thunder.

It does not show it but this moderator, and in fact nearly ALL of them, do not speak English very well if at all. That applies to much of this game. Many patch notes and information released by moderators is written in commie and myself and other dedicated players are forced to try and decipher them with Google translate to figure out what the ♥♥♥♥ they broke this time. Often the reasons given for doing something so ahistorical that it's insulting (when the game claims to try and be historically authentic) is that they found, and I kid you not, "Secret documents in a forgotten russian bunker." This is a real thing. It's even a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ meme!

This lack of english and information also applies to many other trivial things like ban messages and explanations. A friend of mine was banned by this very moderator for having the name "AllahIsWonderful" and we could not figure out why this was offensive when the friend in question is a devout (but liberal) muslim. Appeals are usually met with garbled, confused english that roughly translate into "You're toxic to new players."

The biggest issue with this game's hilariously strict moderation, though, is the fact that topics with criticism that the brony lords dont like can be shut down and hidden because they "hurt new players."


This will not affect many of you, who simply wish to casually play this game and try to participate as little as possible in the mess that is the War Thunder Community. If you do, in between the bans and thread locking, you will find quite a few nice people as the european/american playerbase is wonderful. But even in the chat of public games there are russian brony mods who watch intently what you say.

I wish to expand this review at a later date, but I simply wanted to post this here considering the hilarity of permabanning a friend of mine for having a muslim name when he is, in fact, muslim. I do play this game a lot and enjoy it, and that is because I joined before ♥♥♥♥ hit the fan and the decade-long grind (bypassable by large sums of money) was introduced, and had all my stuff before things went bad.
Thanks for reading, and hopefully I can talk more about these issues that plague War Thunder.


EDIT: After seeing a few comments i'd just like to point this out. I am not angry, nor do i wish to call people out. I simply wish to show you all an example of a terrible idea that only serves to assist Gaijin in censoring and ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ting its community.

http://puu.sh/gdROS/c45e02f498.png

This comment shows how limited war thunder fanboy's range of thought is.

He picks certain parts of arguments and makes wild assumptions, he does not have the capacity to follow an argument past what he disagrees with, and his reaction to things negative to Gaijin is to shut down discussion and conversation.

The only intelligent way to take it is a support for my review, as it exemplifies how easily gaijin is able to use people like that to aggressively take down criticism for their actions. These people hurt the experience of other players with their judgement, hindered by their stilted view of the developers.

Thanks.

EDIT 2: They just made the grind even longer by removing daily bonuses and making us use this random drop system, which will most likely give you a "Research Point Boost" rather than an experience/currency boost which the daily bonuses gave. Other than modifications Research Points are only usable using real money. The decline continues.

Clarification:
Russian patchnotes are much larger and more detailed than the English ones.

The English patchnotes only explain generalities (I.E. "Tempest Mk II has been tuned according to data sheet").

Russian patchnotes will explain details (I.E. "Tempest Mk II speed changed from <bad> to <worse>).

And, yes, English moderators exist, but they are a staggering minority.

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.

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.

Since the lastest patches . The balance in this game went competely crappish and lost all his fun. The only way to have fun is by playing the two unique nations ( on 5 , but the 3 others are the crappiest thank to the devs having no idea what is balacing)

Regarding the historical accurate.. Its nothing but pure ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.
