I gave 2 years of my life to Runescape, now I just say no to MMOs. That said it does look pretty cool.

Here's the original cinematic trailer without the fan modifications (the monochrome sections and the annoying dubstep music): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sfA-NsbzJY

The cinematic is nice, and the screenshots look nice, but the actual in-engine gameplay footage is not quite as impressive.

Although, poking around the site, the land terrain engine seems to look a lot better than the ocean/ships setting.

Downloaded and played the F2P version, graphics are amazing. Between this and Star Conflict I am going to be so spoiled over the next month or so.

Which is what World of Tanks/Planes/Ships is planning to do. Which I think is good. It will give a niche market two competing companies driving for the same goals :)

I have noticed that Russian planes were amazing pieces of machinery that truly spoke of the amazing engineering capacity of the WWII era Soviet military.

I played it for a while, went up the US line. I'll grant the team the benefit of the doubt and say things arent finished. I hope not at least. In the early war the USN/MC pilots were outmatched in Buffalos and Wildcats. But those planes had advantages at higher speeds in dives that the Zekes couldnt match due to their outsized control surfaces.

In War Thunder, not so much. Even in real battles with Hellcats and Corsairs the US air wing climbs worse, dives worse, turns worse than its opponents. And Im not new to flying. Not like Im doing uncoordinated turns and side slipping my energy away. Its just the way they built the flight models. Or havent built them, can't really tell.



Personally Im looking forward to the DCS World War 2. The DCS Mustang is fantastic.

or this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4g0PmoQxMg

Those both seem like early builds, theyre not using the gyro gun sight.

Yeah, Russian designers are worse than most when it comes to putting native hardware over everyone else's. It's hard to blame them because they didn't have a lot of good stuff, the T-34 and IS-2 were pretty good, but their airplanes and pretty much everything else were average or worse, but still, it's pretty obvious at times.
