    ok, i'm ashamed Sweatdrop
    this is the oldest website I still visit on daily basis and I wasn't aware that Blue went Rogue
    Ok then, that means this site is squarely in Blue's hands and that puts me at ease.
    Rock on! Headbang

    Also, this trailer shows a level that was cut from the game because it would be too difficult, featuring more delicate timing than most levels in the game.
    Yet another game crippled by these god dammed fucking console controllers

    If you bothered to read it, you don't have to buy the game.

    Buying the boxed version is basically the same as the microtransactions, it will give you 10 euros worth of in game money/items, some preorder bonus items and early access to the game and beta.
    i read 100% of text in the article and nowhere does it say that.

    Its esentially a tank shooter with a lot of tactical and strategic elements thrown in.
    right now there's no strategy. it's all tactical.

    100,000 credits an hour, that's 10 hours of grind to get enough credits for KV3, the next one up is 25 hours, the next one up is 36 hours. and that's credits only to buy tanks themselves, not counting required upgrades(not even talking about 'all' upgrades).

    i call it grind because of a very steep increase required to progress from earlier tanks. if they would make the progress more linear i'd have no problems with it.

    the game's mechanics are always pushing you to upgrade to a higher tier, therefore you have no choice but grind and grind. you can't easily keep every single tank you played with. you have a limited number of slots in your garage so you are forced to dump lower tanks to make room for larger ones.

    You DO NOT get gold coins while offline. During the beta you get 250 coins every 24 hours. You just happened to be offline when they give them to you.
    Once the game live supposedly you have to pay real $ to buy in-game gold coins.
    However, all is not lost. If you play a fully researched tank, any xp you get goes toward a common experience pool where you can convert that xp into gold coins.

    Even though this game is very addictive, it's an insane grindfest. On par if not even more than Korean MMOs. I'm playing Russian line and to go from an artillery tank that i have right now to the next level up I have to have ~190,000 research points! During a usual match i get 500-700 research points, and up to ~1700 research points during a really successful match. I also have a KV-1 tank. To go from it to the next level up, KV-3, I need to have 21,000 research points(which is not that bad), but once I researched it I found out that I need 1 MILLION credits to actually buy it! During a normal game I get ~20,000 credits. And I'm just about to reach the middle tier of tanks.
    Going all the way to the top is going to take an insane amount of time.

    I'm appalled that they deleted Blue's News entry!
    This site is a gaming institution! I can't think of any other site that existed for so long while maintaining its focus and spirit!(well, perhaps VoodooExtreme to a much smaller degree).
    Look at http://www.bluesnews.com/a/2/site-credits That list does not justify it to be in Wikipedia?!
    Maybe somebody who's familiar with Wikipedia's idiosyncrasy should resubmit that article?
