About Damn time...
First off, I am a little rusty still but as this would be my first post/review for the year, let me just say how really frustrating games like this are. OK alright I know I'm bashing a game that has much to work out still but hey, its not too bad, apart from all the glitches and ghost rounds all is peachy. Just remember behind most of these games there's a toxic community behind it, so toxic just the mere thought of it gives me a headache.
Cause if match making doesn't stick you into a tier 6 game (which in AW tier 6 games kill everything lower, so don't think cause you're in a tier 5 you will survive) you'll get stuck with a team of idiots just like its predecessors. AW makes the grind so much harder to little reward, that's why every so often you log in and you get rewards and bonuses that give you ridiculous amounts of credits and experience.
So yea, its a game where you don't play old WWII tanks but modern fighting machines. Like I said it was fun at first but as you progress it becomes sticky and really annoying. The game for South African users like myself see 200 ping but every so often you are right on top of a enemy player and you click and your round vanishes into thin air. Don't know if that is a bug but played it with friends and they experienced the same thing, in critical moments like that its really hard not to smash and delete the game off the PC.
You saw the game on YouTube and "The Mighty Jingles" was playing it, well I hate to burst your bubble but the guy gets paid off to give good reviews for both WoT and AW so don't be surprised if he doesn't actually tell you that in order to get to where you need to go you gotta mind the glitches. He used to do very good video's and don't get me wrong I loved the guy, he made WoT and WoWS interesting, but like so many other people just like him they all sooner or later get a nice pay slip to promote certain games they play.
But enough of that...
The game is just another grind of pain I give it a 6.5 on the LoG gaming list. If you love to grind like you did in World of Tanks then you'll love this, keeps getting harder and harder the higher you go. Hey at least arty doesn't kill you with one foul swoop!
