    You're not killing anyone - the "kill" is when a tank is destroyed. After the battle the destroyed tank is repaired and the same crew stay with that tank.

    Yeah? How many people make up a tank crew? That tank doesn't go away without them.

    I'll be the first to admit, I don't see making a game of this. Lard-asses sitting on mommy's sofa playing some game they can't play in real life when the stakes aren't a reset button.

    But, I can't even watch war movies without flipping, so ......

    Anywhere from 3 to 7.

    I won't get into a debate about how terrible destroying a digital tank is that is manned by digital people. That's as silly as PETA crusading against Mario Brothers because you made a digital Mario jump on top of a digital turtle.

    Think about it though. The digital tank with digital crew members is based on .... what?

    Just picked this up on PlayStation last night, seems very solid and done a good and picked up my first 5/0 this morn (:

    My current feeling on the game however is that the skill trees / upgrade paths look very broad, and come with a one sentence explanation that doesn't really explain anything. So going from a noobie perspective what perks/skills/upgrades for tanks and crew are desirable?
    If you also agree that an animals suffering should be avoided rather than encouraged, consider what steps you can take.

    There's a million different strategies, but I always went with 'Brothers in Arms' skill first, and then their individual talents after that. I did that for every different tank/artillery.

    Bear in mind, though, that the effect does not come into play until every one of your crew members have that skill at 100%. But it makes a huge difference as to how they perform in battle.

    Half of crewmember skills are cumulative... for example, if you're training your driver in the Off Road skill, your tank will slowly get faster and more maneuverable when driving through swamps and such as he gets higher, until finally he reaches 100%.

    Those skills are nice, because you at least get some benefit as you grind through leveling their skills up.

    @CSM

    Still playing? I dusted it off and played a bit yesterday... they've updated the game nicely, almost 8 gigs of updates.

    There's a new 7 vs 7 battle that they added, essentially you've got a 7-man platoon so you can work with guys you know are good instead of the random bunch of idiots. Add me to your friend's list in game and join up for some ass whoopin!

    Just saw this. Yep, still playing. I will try to look you up in game. I suspect the time difference between NH and AK will be a bit of a problem but we can give it a shot!

    Will have to wait until this fall when things slow down for me.

    can one play against AI or is this network play only, with live players?

    Live players. Though there is a very small training scenario to get you used to the controls and such. WARNING: this game has a VERY STEEP learning curve. It is very addicting and VERY VERY frustrating at times.
