  • Better clean the dust off your joysticks...

    There is this game called War Thunder that is set in World War 2. It's basically World War 2 planes dog fighting. Siger told me about this game, thought you guys would want to check it out and play with me and him when we are not playing ArmA =). We also don't only fight other planes, we also fight against carriers, warships, tanks etc. We just cant control anything besides the planes. Greatest part about it too is that...ITS FREE!

    A post Siger made about this game : http://www.tacticalgamer.com/mass-mu...r-f2p-mmo.html

    Also I know this isn't ArmA related. I posted it in Armed Assault because most of the people I know at TG play ArmA.

      World of Warplanes is coming too (the folks that brought you World of Tanks). Signed up for beta, fingers crossed. Never heard of this though.

        Gave War Thunder a try last night. Rudder wobble is the bane of my existence right now. Its also striking how many extra costs they put in to force you to buy eagles. Their F2P model isn't very sustainable...

          Serafiel,yes they did put in a lot of extra costs,but its not really P2W,i for example have level 11 with the germans and a LOT of lions.
          Early on its hard to decide which faction to go for and you gotta keep buying planes as you go but if you have at least 2 kills a match you can manage early on.
          And for example i played a match where i killed 15 guys with my FW 190 earned enough to fix all my planes from all the factions and rearm every single bullet,and still had left to by a plane.
          Compare this F2P model with WOT,SWTOR,World of Warplanes.
          Besides i played World of warplanes and the game-play compared to this one its not even close.
          They dont force you to buy eagles you can manage very well without eagles.

            I'll admit I'm not far enough along yet to appreciate how everything scales. Unfortunately I only have the hurricane unlocked with the Brits, and I'm rubbish with it. I can maybe get a kill or two before some biplane kiddie rams me.

            Also, is it just me or are the guns on the low tier planes severely underpowered? I can dump a mag at more advanced warbirds and it seemingly does nothing.

              Why are you playing other games? Arma 2 isn't good enough for you? What does this other game have that arma doesn't?

                I play plenty of different games besides arma, I like variety.

                  I thought arma fulfilled all your needs
