Yea that small download is a client and then in the client you download the actual game. I'll check installed size for you tonight but it took my connection (350kb/s average download speed) about 3 hours.

Cheers for that. Saves me a job later. N yea, that is about right. I generally download about a gig per hour.

Yea, was on for a couple of hours last night. It's a bit tough to start off with since you start with crappy tanks and you're generally up against good tanks but it didn't take long for me to unlock and upgrade to some semi decent tanks. It would be really awesome to get a few of us on there and see if we can party up and get some tactics going. I'll do some research and see what the options are on that front. In terms of gameplay, it was easy to get to grips with controls etc and was generally quite rewarding. I'm not sure if I've had my first kill yet as it seems that when I'm shooting at someone, someone else is also shooting at them and I tend to get assists but it's still fun. The maps are fairly limited in numbers but I assume that is something that will be fixed with time.

 

A good tip for anyone first starting is check out the tank progression map thing and find the tank you want, ie the one with the best stats for you and then work backwards from there. I made the mistake of using some of my points on unlocking stuff which doesn't achieve that end goal.

 

I can see this becoming very addictive!

 

Oh and one last thing. The longest I had to wait to find a game to play in was 30 seconds! It was awesome!

what's the player count like and game mode like? Is it like death match in tanks or open world type thing?

I'm curious to check it out but I think I might be running a fine line with my data after installing Dead Rising.

Good question about numbers. I think it was about 12-16 per team, of which there were two. The game mode at the moment are relatively small maps where you either kill everyone on the other team or capture their base. You only get one life but if you get killed early on you can start up another game with a different tank and the points still get awarded to you.

 

Edit: It's up to 15 players per team. :)

 

2nd Edit: I found my stats. I've killed 4 and died 12 times. Awesome!

I'll be on at about 7.30 tonight if anyone is keen. Platoons take up to 3 people so would be cool to jump on with 2 others n see how it works.

All good mate. That last game we were in I kept looking over to where you were and your health was yellow every time. Lol. It's good fun. Not sure how community nights are going to work yet. I suppose I have until next Thursday to figure it out though.

 

Any suggestions?

From what I've played so far it seems best to stick to the outside of the maps and to get into cover as soon as possible, let other people spot tanks for you and then just shoot at those ones, making sure to check around you occasionally to make sure you aren't getting flanked. It's actually quite tactical. I really like it!

Xbox NZ may have just hooked us up with a 25,000 Gold and 5,000,000 Silver currency pack! I'll let you know for sure when I get my hands on it.

 

I won one, so was like, "hey, you don't happen to have another one that I can give away at my first world of tanks night do you?" They said they would see if they can source another one. Sweet! Good on ya Xbox NZ! Bloody legends!

Wow, that's pretty sweet.

 

The guy who operates that NZ Xbox Facebook page is actually a member on these forums, I think he might be a mate of teljam's as well. He's a good dude.

That's cool. Might add him and see if he accepts my friend request. :)

 

Sweet! Just used my code so now I'm rolling in it! Too bad I've got GTA tonight and Halo 4 tomorrow night. Looks like I'll be waiting till Sunday night to spend my winnings.
