Ark 2 is being promoted. First Ark is free to claim on Steam (also 3 dlcs), until it's not. I clicked the button and will get around installing probably never.

Thank you. I got it and plan to never play it either.

Newbie, do you remember this game from 1998?


I tried to get it working on Win 10 awhile ago and it will not work. One of the greatest games I ever played. I would kill to play an updated version of it. No other tank games have campaigns and stuff like it.

I played Novalogic sims.

M1TPII is on Steam for *coughs* $10, can probably get it on good sales every now and then. Says it works with Win 10, but one of the reviews said it won't out of the box for Win 11. Another comment cited issues with gsync.

World of Tanks kind of soured the video game tank experience for me, but I'm aware that what that game is isn't trying to be one of these.

World of Tanks is garbage. Armored Warfare and Warthunder were better experiences for me. Still annoyed at there being prototypes that never saw combat or service or in world of tanks case made up vehicles.
The irony of guns, is that they can save lives.

IMO,

Armored Warfare was fun, for awhile. Played lots of PVE (similarly to WoWS), but got tired of the dated physics. Avoided WT because I thought I'd get into it too much. WoT felt like a good arcade balance, but WG's moneymaking strategy bled too deeply into the gameplay. Even so, I could've looked past that and the paper tanks if the community wasn't hot garbage. I think I booted it up once after they reworked vehicle equipment loadouts, but I didn't feel like learning a bunch of new stuff for it. Or getting caught at the end of a match by some clan like "hey, we noticed you have an Obj 907/Chieftain/whatever, we need more of those!" ugh, the clan meta was so duuullll.

Well a few years back, I took a break from Armored Warfare and they completely reset my progress due to not playing combined with online matches being difficult to find that I just straight up quit that game. Can't even get a PVE game, then again don't want to work my way up the tech tree all over again.

Warthunder is a bit more realistic as it is more on hitting weakpoints of vehicles or killing the crew of enemy vehicles to get a kil. Also doesn't have a spotting system like World of Tanks', it is your eyeball and binoculars to spot vehiclesl. Plus you can use all weaponry, including machine guns as there are aircraft and unarmored vehicles even in higher tiers. Some problems are the way they tier the vehicles sometimes is weird and of course still some prototype vehicles, although there isn't BS like Tiger I's with long 88's or any other guns that weren't ever on the vehicle that world of tanks takes liberties of. Almost all vehicles have the correct guns in warthunder which is appreciative. It is too bad I started playing warthunder when I started to stop playing videogames routinely.

I thought in WoT that you had to get the Tiger II before mounting the long 88. Could be remembering it wrong, I suppose.

Dick move on AW's part, I wouldn't grind from scratch either. I suppose if my account's affected too, all that I have left is the one premium tank I deigned to buy. Wouldn't be the first time something like that's happened to an account of mine, either. When Star Trek Online changed hands, my account data was lost and no amount of tech support saying "oh, man, we'll get on that" ever amounted to anything. Oh well, I think I'd covered most of the unique content by that point anyway.

I didn't know this was available on steam. I have wanted to play this game for over a decade. Thanks. +1
