I registered for its beta, but never played it. Let's see the active number of players.

Lulz. What I have realized over time is that comments like this reveal more about the speaker than the targets. Until this comment I had no idea where the studio was that made this game. And now, I still don't care.

You drive around in a tank blowing tanks up.
It's basically quake in a tank.
For what it is, I enjoy it . . . when the match maker is working that is.
Most of the time it's just a massive POS that can't make a decent match at all.
From what I've played, if you're in a match with a tank more than 2, maybe 3 tiers above you, you're screwed. And the tier spread is 5, which means a mid tier (tier 5) can be in a match with a max tier (tier 10) which usually results in a one shot from outside the range you can see anyone.
That's what pisses me off more than the "gold" ammo and "gold" tanks.

Huh? I had no idea who made the game when I tried it out and yawned over it.

Some of my favorite games have been made in Europe.

A shit game is a shit game no matter what continent it was made on.

you can sure tell the games that don't bring home any butter for anyone in these forums... if this were a north american game you'd all be clamoring to suck it's dick in-front of the media, regardless of it's quality.

You think that many folks here are patriotic gamers? I've never thought about the nationality of a game developer, at least since I was a kid in the 80's when "Japan made the best games".
Most American devs today are still sub-par. And fuck the whole country anyway, with all it's problems, but maybe that's what you were hoping someone would say?

My old clan almost eveyrone played. They gave up a lot of good FPS games to play it. One of the reasons I left. They had 3-4 accounts per person.
Ok, I'll bite, Bats. I know nothing about this game. Why have multiple accounts?

No idea. I never installed it.

Actual game is pure junk, dont even get me into simulation discussion, its like they throw free candy at mass of kids and see how many they can catch in a net. Don't get dragged into this net, cause its empty gameplay. So much resources lost and them using all those tanks for bs game like this is just disgrace.

How is it more empty than any other game? It's entertaining, you can use tactics and comms if you want(like any other game), you have varied gameplay, etc. Not sure why you're so butthurt, particularly for something that requires no capital outlay

Not a fun game at all, highly overrated. And

And this "The title also holds the Guinness World Record for Most Players Online Simultaneously on One MMO Server." is just pure BS. What does that record matter when only ~20 people can play in one match anyway?

As others have said, played for 30 minutes, was bored, uninstalled.

I love tank simulations but didn't love this.

What they don't mention is that about half of those never play it beyond an hour or more once they deal with the bugginess, installation problems on some optimized systems, and frankly once they hit that wall of balanced gameplay(read not very). The interface folks need to look at the last 20 years of game UIs and not make the mistakes others have as well.

They also don't mention that it's a complete grindfest if you don't throw real world money at it.

I'm not hating on it, just trying to tone down the developer sensationalism. They seem like a younger, motivated team so who knows, these could all be growing pains.

Its F2P, and those tend to have a LOT of players.

Yeah, but even ignoring actual active accounts I find it exceedingly hard to believe that 18 million people have signed up for this.

Well whatever the number I think we can be sure that it ain't 18 million nor 1 million, not even 500k

Because i can't see this game having any kind of player retainment... but maybe i am wrong..
