Smacky! I play WoT! And I met LC50 yesterday, yes it's him. He was probably in-game when you wrote him. Woot!

I don't think the Mac version will come any time soon. I'm a Mac fiend, but I installed an old Windooze XP OS on my Mac and gave it a 50 Gb partition, I use only for gaming.

WoT is an awesome game! I just post that in the PSL19 tread, sorry for the repeat:

"Is there any PSLer playing World of Tanks?

http://worldoftanks.com/

Not to sounds spammy, but it's an amazingly fun game, and it's free - and unlike PTT there's always 7,000 to 10,000 players online, and you get in a game within 10 seconds. It does not have as much humour and fun physics as TT, but it has the casualness of TT - you play a lot, you die a lot, and it's fast-paced. Right now in WoT you join online and get in a 'random battle' game where 15 human players battle 15 other human players - every game is quite unique and different.

I saw LC50 there yesterday, so I thought of posting here.

In WoT I'm 'hugobrainz', of course! Let me know if you join, I'll look for you!

Da Brainz!"

Smacky, I'll look for you. :thumbup:

I read Smacky's post and got all excited to check out ANOTHER online tank game... then I read LGM's post. If there's no mac version, it must not be all that awesome...


I will be on the look-out for the mac version....

EDIT: I was reading the WoT forums and it looks like players are messing with their mac setup to play it. A few mac players are using things like Wine Virtual Environment (allowing a mac to work like a PC gaming-wise) and Bootcamp. Others said that Wargaming isn't looking into making it available for macs (which I hope is a rumor). I'll probably end up looking into these virtual Windows setups so I can test out and play WoT if word on the mac version hasn't developed in the coming months.

Like I said, just get a cheap or old and free version of WindowsXP. There's always someone with a dying PC somewhere. Then use Mac Bootcamp to create a Window partition on your Mac computer hard drive, and you're in business. I have a 200Gb Mac partition, and a 50 Gb one for XP; I only use it for gaming. I play on my MacBook, a friend gave me his old XP disk. Really simple. :thumbup:

Played WoT some last night for the first time. It isn't a bad game at all, but it's also not all that similar to TT, except that you're piloting a tank. ;)

WoT is a more 'real' environment, while TT is more cartoonish. TT is more action-oriented, WoT is more tactical.

After a few sacrificial games I figured out some of the limits of my base tank and the environment. I've managed to make a few kills and gain a bit of experience, and upgraded one of my tanks, so I'm not quite a breadbox being pulled by a snail. Now I'm a breadbox being pulled by an armadillo, and I have a bigger gun. :) I've actually managed to survive to the end of a few matches, and managed 2 kills in a single battle once. Granted, I haven't survived all the way to the end in a game where I made a kill yet.... ;)

At any rate, my account there is Master TMO.

I've been giving it a try.....I'm not sold on it yet. I agree it is a tank game, but that ends the similarities. Here are a few screenies.



I'll give it a few months and see what its like.

Yes the first tier (out of 10) of tanks are tin cans with a 50cc engine in, and it's shooting paper balls. Tier-2 is much better! I still drive my BT-2, it's fun and fast!

Just got yesterday my tier-4, it's fairly fast and better armoured, but still I cannot engage frontally the big guys. WoT is like an aquarium, sometimes you're the big fish, sometimes the smaller one. Usually though you get matched with similar strength tiers of tanks.

Ok TMO I'll be looking for you! I remember you were a good shooter in TT. :tankerwinks:

@parCAT: sorry it came out confusing, but didn't you hear about Mac Bootcamp?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boot_Camp_(software)

You can install Windowze on any intel-based Mac computer.
