I'm in the WoT Beta for the X360...
I like it.
But unfortunately, I suck at it.
For whoever is on my team, my apologies for my turd like performances... :-(

do you get a mail when you get in ? 

 

I wonder since they're doing Tanks for the xbox if they'll do the new fighter plane game to which interests me a lot more.

What? I haven't heard of this. This looks like fun. The beta sign up page is still there, so I went ahead and signed up. Not sure they're adding anyone new though.

Holy thread resurrection batman! World of tanks has now been released and is free to play on xbox 360. Anyone playing it? I downloaded it last weekend and have been hooked ever since.

 

Quick question, is it better to resreach your way through the british, american or german tank tree if you are after a heavy tank??

Americans have the better heavy tank line.

Downloaded it at the weekend but have yet to try it. It's not honestly my type of game, but free is free so I'll give it a whirl.

I hope we get World of Warplanes soon as well. WoT I'm not a huge fan of but Warplanes I like quite well.

Spent ages building up xp in the panzer II g, only to realise that there is only one more tank i can unlock after that. Balls.

Back to the panzer II and then the II a.

WoT rules! :) I play in pc, don't have a xbox :(

 

Each match takes the most 15 min (max time) and can take at least 5 min.

I haven't played the game but I thought everyone was afraid of the German's Tiger? :)

Not in this game they're not. While I would prefer to play the Tiger over the T29 (American equivalent), it is the harder tank to master. The biggest problem the Tiger and the King Tiger have in WoT is that they don't have that much armour and they both suffer from arbitrary top speed limit. KT was powerful in a good player's hands but now with everyone shooting premium ammo armour is kind of useless. Germans have the E-75 which is arguably the best tier 9 tank in the game, but the tier 10s (Maus & E-100) are utter crap.

 

The American tanks on the other hand are a bit faster and they have more gun depression which one might find very useful. That and all their tanks decent to great.

 

If you have any other questions about WoT don't hesitate to ask. While I'm no longer active and up to date on all the little things they introduced in the game, I (plug time) was in the top 250 players on the EU server and I managed to finance my premium account for more than two years through Clan Wars and various competitions from only a 30€ starting package (I know people that spent 3000+).

 

I'm currently waiting for War Thunder to release tanks (they're in closed beta) though the developer/publisher doesn't inspire very much confidence after I player one of their games. Here are some in-game screenshots of the Glorious King Tiger:
