i played War Thunder for a little bit yesterday. It was different, but fun. In WoT, you have x amount of hit points based on your tank and the tank blows up when it goes to zero or below. In WT, the tanks blow up after your crew is killed. Operating the tanks is the same, so it was fun. in my first match, I wiped out 7 enemy tanks and stayed alive to earn 1st place on my team. I was feeling proud of myself until I got smoked the next two games. Interesting to watch a round penetrate a weak spot and send shrapnel flying inside my tank, which promptly killed all my crew.
WT allows you easily jump between, tanks, ships or planes which is a nice feature. In WoT you have load up WoT and WoS separately. Since I also like WoS, I naturally had to try my hand at running a few ship battles in WT. Again, the game is different but still fun. The sea battles seemed to run faster. I don't think they have battleships in the game.
I will have to play it more to get a better feel of the game. I might have to hop back on WoT/WoS for comparison.
