    No, this isn't some awful reality programme, I'm talking about the latest tanking game called Armored (fuck, why can't they use proper English spelling :() Warfare.

    It's based on modern warfare and is very similar to World of Tanks (WoT), but in my humble opinion has improved on it. Have only played around 50 battles currently but it does seem to be quite a good game, the graphics are certainly a big improvement over those in WoT, although that isn't a major concern I would put them sort of between WoT and War Thunder (WT). It does differ in two major respects to Wot. Firstly you don't have to pay to win, sure you can pay for gold etc but every item is available even if it may take a while and premium tanks are slightly under powered compared to their same tier equivalents & don't give matchmaking preference, and secondly the matchmaker currently appears to be streets ahead of WoT's, naturally because it's a new game there aren't a lot of players on but generally there's only a 2 tier spread in vehicles, hell even had a battle with all the same tier :eek:.

    Aside from what I've mentioned above it's pretty much a clone of WoT, which in iteself is a compliment to what Wargaming have achieved, but an improvement. Still, it will remain to be seen how the game ends up and I'll possibly end up raging just as much with it (probably???). They do only have US and Euro servers at the moment, but I don't find the roughly 150 ping to the US server any great hassle to deal with, but then I can't hit shit for the life of me :). They currently don't have an equivalent of clan wars either, not sure if that's planned or not and I don't think they'll be branching off to aircraft of warships either - but hey, who knows.

    We've started an OLDr Battalion (clan) and if anyone is interested in having a go then you can download the game HERE.

    I'll have a squizzy when I get back home from sunny north QLD. My gaming schedule is getting pretty packed can't hurt to squeeze another one in there, what's the worst that could happen?

    No need to throw anything away Jumpy, not saying it's gonna be the best tank game ever, but it does give some insight what WoT could've become it they were interested in what their players thought instead of $$$$$$$.

    And seriously mate, it's just gaming dollars, if you take it that seriously then ...

    Amor is Spanish for love isn't it? Maybe amored means... hmm... scratch that.

    Firstly, apologies all for necroing an old thread but I didn't think this was worth a new one.

    I've been playing AW on and off since I found out about it here and finally (got to tell someone), got me my T-14 (bloody awesome).
    I do prefer this game to WoT for several reasons, but presently they are going through an update period and there are a few issues. Mind you, I think it's officially still in beta, wtf. :D

    Nothing like being a thread paramedic. Also I think they should shorten the name from "Armored fuck, why can't they use proper English spelling Warfare" to maybe just "Armored fuck" because frankly it's a mouthful.
