    Ever dreamed of driving a 50 ton hunk of metal and slinging explosive rounds at your enemies? Ever had the desire to watch other gamers cringe as you charge at them, knocking down trees and any other obstacles in your path?Do you love vehicle warfare? Then World of Tanks is for YOU!

    World of Tanks is an immersive multiplayer tank simulator made by WarGaming that takes a stab at an often overlooked aspect of World War II: the tank battles. All of the tanks and maps in the game are era-specific to the 1940s and early 1950s. Currently there are tanks from three of the major players in the conflict: Germany, Russia and the United States. Plans to add in tanks from both France and Japan have been slated for future patches. Put simply: the game has everything you’d want out of a free-to-play title. More than 15 maps, over 50 different tanks, and the ability to play in either first or third person modes give the game an incredible diversity.

    That diversity is also constantly increasing. World of Tanks has an incredibly dedicated development team who, with the latest patch to version 0.6.4, have made lots of changes to game mechanics, balance, and new maps have been added, as well as introducing Clan Wars. Plans are in the works for 30+ new tanks in the existing three nation’s tech trees over the next few months as well!

    The developer diaries will be released on a weekly basis, so attention all trigger-happy wizards: the time to finally put your wizardly training to test is close at hand. And by “training” though, we really just mean purposely blowing up your friends.

Put on your robe, grab your sword and staff, and bring your game face because we will be seeing you in the arena very soon. Please note that you’ll be the ones in the actual arena, we’ll be outside of it like a bunch of pansy aristocrats. ...

    Welcome to the fifth edition of the PR: ArmA2 Highlights Reel!

    Although this newsreel has been a while in coming, there has been a significant reason for this, the main one being there really was not too much to update on and also a large rethink of our priorities for v0.1. The team have continued however to work away in the background on a new Map, and as always constant improvments to the gameplay. Point to note, everything mentioned in this and any future Newsposts will now only relate to PR: ArmA2 v0.1 only.

    - What Will be in the first release - v0.1

    "Killing a man is murder unless you do it to the sound of trumpets." ~ Voltaire

    The sources, methods, goals and tactics of identifying legitimate targets for covert action, are matters typically hidden from public scrutiny, yet clearly worthy of public attention and philosophical debate. The following of unequivocal ethical criteria when identifying targets is necessary to minimize blowback when conducting Targeted Killing Operations. Comparable to torture and rendition, the debate that encompasses these operations have passionate supporters on both sides of the issue. In spite of the genuine controversy surrounding this subject, a carefully circumscribed policy of targeted killing can be a legal and effective tool in a counter-terror campaign.

    It is necessary to provide a coherent and acceptable definition of both assassination and targeted killing in order to form a common frame of reference when debating the pertinent moral and legal arguments for and against targeted killing. First, we must differentiate the current US policy of targeted killing from the common understanding of “assassination.” In asymmetric warfare determining combatant vs. non-combatant status is a critical task to any operation. Discerning between these two designations may initially seem effortless, however, in an asymmetric environment these distinctions only come in shades of grey. Throughout the paper, we will examine the arguments for and against targeted killing. Subsequently, I propose policy guidelines to that must be considered in order to minimize blowback when conducting Targeted Killing Operations. ...

    Today I'd like to present Brink, a brand new first person shooter set in the near future on the man made island "The Ark". The Ark is a green nuts dream, designed as a completely self sufficient floating man made city, it was supposed to be paradise. Now the global environmental crisis is real, threatened with rising sea levels, thousands of refugees have swarmed to the ark as their last hope. You the player get to choose one of two sides; the Security forces trying to sustain some form of law and order, or the Resistance fighting for what they believe is there fair share of the resources.

    One of the cool and interesting features in Brink is "SMART", Smooth Movement Across Random Terrain. What Bethesda has tried to do is make the limitations of modern fps go away. If you see it you can go over, under or around it in a smooth quick progression. In practice the game blinds free-running with fps game-play. You can slide, jump, bounce off of or hurdle walls, or just run around like a monkey on crack, all the while enjoying everything you would find in an fps. ...

    The folks over at Armed Assualt would like all who have not participated yet, to our next tvt event. This will be a vanilla event so you don't need to worry about mods, just need Armed Assualt 2 + Operation Arrowhead, (also known as Combined Operations for those who bought them together) and make sure there patched up.

    This event will feature some of the methodical ArmA TvT aspects that most players didn't even realize was possible. The joy of engaging enemy teams with suppressive fires and flanking under smoke, or the fear of moving through a village and hearing your opponents talking in hushed tones are you get close. ...

    We are pleased to announce to the TG Community the reactivation of the TG Competitions section! What this provides is a platform for Ladder Matches and Tournaments within and outside of Tactical Gamer. We will be hosting competitions for several titles here at TG, and more will be added as are needed or requested.

    This will be mostly player run, I/E player formed teams and team issued challenges. For those familiar with Tactical Warfare League, it is a very similar setup. I will be overall in charge of the Ladder/Competition system as the League Admin and will have “Referee’s” for the different titles to help out as needed. For those interested in being a referee please PM me with a short bio and in your own words explain why you would like to be a referee.

    The competitions will start running as soon as teams sign up and start issuing challenges. So, without any further banter from me, let’s explain some of the rules and SOP’s for our Tactical Gamer League:
