I haven't tried it. I had a look when it was mentioned in a thread here once but I never tried it. I can just tell somehow that I won't stick with it.

Right now I'm chasing down enemy planes in War Thunder while waiting on 303 Squadron and Post Scriptum to come out. Overall, I'm not happy with the way online gaming has gone. Having one large server with players of different ability makes for nothing but lopsided matches. Also, more teenagers and young men now own gaming computers and they, of course, bring their attitudes with them. Hence the number of a-holes playing has grown exponentially.
I tried WoT again recently. I read my comments on why I stopped playing it and decided I was giving up too soon. I read and watched about things like spotting and armor and I get that much better now but what turns me away is how a player really needs to know all the different tanks to be effective. It's just too much to learn. You need to know what kind of armor every tank has so you can decide when to shoot and what type of shells to use. If I was a tank geek it would be great but I don't want to learn all that. I'm up for a little more than just blowing shit up but not that much.
From their web page War Thunder is trying really hard to look like WoT. Is it less complicated? There are hundreds of vehicles. Do I need to learn them all?
