    War Thunder is a next generation MMO combat game dedicated to World War II military aviation, armored vehicles, and fleets. You will take part in all of the major combat battles, fighting with real players all over the world.


    Anyone playing this? World of tanks style - but dogfighting.

    In global beta test at the moment and absolutely fantastic. Is 'pay to gain XP' but very playable without paying anything (which I do).

    Most fun on an online game I've had for a LONG time.

    Yes I have this installed but have not played for a while. Its quite good and beats World Of Warplanes hands down. Tried getting other people into it but no1 listened so gave up. I am not real big plane sim fan thought so don't give it as much attention as flight sim fans would. Will be interesting to see where they take this game, not sure if its meant to stay 100% flight sim or not.

    It's not really sim if you play arcade battles if I do. More of an arcade dogfighting game - but it feels good, has air collisions and does that 'big war' feel quite well.

    Usually more into the sim side of things, but for an arcade game, this has been really fun!

    300+ ping hasn't been a problem, sunk about 3-5 hours into it and topped the boards a few times.

    Starting planes are just as fun as the later models.

    It feels alright but to be honest it's worse for the arcade mode (which most play). Mouse and keyboard is very well done here so it's easy to play it. I'm guessing that would be different on the more realistic modes.

    how is it worse for arcade mode? it seems a bit daft if its different :/

    i guess ill just try both and see how they feel.

    Well the control is the same. But they've done a bang up job with making the mouse control awesome. You can point your mouse in any direction you want and the virtual pilot will use the ailerons, elevator and rudder to get your plane pointing in that direction as fast as possible.

    Using a joystick will disadvantage you as it will introduce human error and generally be less precise.

    I believe the realistic battle games turns off the virtual pilot.

    I've got a joystick with me, and more than capable of using it. But the mouse battles have been refreshingly simple. You can still use most of the same flying tactics, lead your shots etc.

    I have been playing with my XB controller, not so good. May have to go hunting for my old sidewinder pro.

    Anyone else playing with controller?

    The reason for this is my PC is hooked up to my TV in the lounge, not so easy access to mouse+KB.

    Just from my last game - some of my favourites.

    FYI Nick is Septlante - add me for squad play.

    It automatically saves a replay so that's boss for screens!

    Well, that was weird. I did the tutorials, controls were great and easy to use. I get into battle, and then my controls are inversed, and it's impossible to aim. What exactly happened there?

    Just change invert Y axis in the controls
