Yeah, the Ground Forces Beta has been live for a bit, but I haven't tested it until today. Servers closed about 20 mins ago, and I enjoyed playing quite a few battles for 2-3 hours.

I recorded some videos, but they turned out shit... I mean... REALLY shit - so screw them. :D

There are a few things worth mentioning:

Limitations
- Beta testing can only be done at awkward hours. I quit work earlier today, so I could play for a few hours at least.
- There's just one map (zone capping).
- Only Russian and German tanks, which is nice enough.
- I think I counted about max 1800 players online, so by limiting it like this battles start faster.
- Tanks we played with were from Reserve to Tier 2, and it was only 4-5 German ones in total, I think. Probanly the same amount of Russian ones too. I played mostly with a Stug 3 Tank Destroyer, which is something I know very well from World of Tanks too. Håhåhå!

Invisible tanks
Especially around the spawn area tanks are invisible as they spawn, so if you drive around you suddenly stop it's because you just hit a tank you didn't (and couldn't) see.

Tank tipping (similar to cow tipping, but with tanks instead)
You can drive around, while listen to some AC/DC - suddenly your tank flips around. I think it's kinda related to the matter above.

Touch and feel
The game is really neat. Driving around is very fun, and aiming is not that easy, but easy enough. The graphics is damn good, like everywhere else in the War Thunder universe.

Okay, these were just a few thoughts after the first try. I'll update in this thread whenever I can play it (and there's something new to tell), and I will get that bleeding recording fixed so I can provide proper recordings for you lot.

V for sniper sight ... A little late (but not too late) to find out about that - and it's probably the one key I haven't tried. Typical! Hahaha!

Other keys that are noteworthy:

1-4 - for different ammo.
5 - Call for artillery (but it must be researched first though).

Agreed!

It's MUCH better now than the first time I tried the beta. It's always fun to actually hit a plane, and I belive it'll be easier with that V-key to toy with. Haha!

Fun to follow this beta, and this game is within my core interests when it comes to genres. :)

In the beginning the open beta server availability was shit. Now it's much better... it's even open on saturday evenings. This is the availability right NOW:

Tuesday 13:00 GMT - 17:00 GMT
Wednesday 02:00 GMT - 06:00 GMT
Thursday 13:00 GMT - 17:00 GMT
Friday 02:00 GMT - 06:00 GMT
Saturday 13:00 GMT - 17:00 GMT
Sunday 02:00 GMT - 06:00 GMT

I played tonight too, but I was a bit drunk. Fun times! :)
