Good afternoon everyone from probably the only Texan that doesn't know how to aim properly.

I registered a few years back but haven't really gone to actually playing until recently.

I may have been a Sidewinder in a previous life as my mid-air collision is kinda high in an effort to be a more effective gunner.

Nope.  I think we have a moderator that fits into that category as well.  :tongue:

Greetings and welcome, Siestanator_Rio.

Hey there folks.  

 

I got into this game thinking I'd only play Air Battles as I've been using WoT Blitz for my tanking fix.  But the way this game works is just so much more interesting that I'm now getting into tanks as well.  

 

I'm slowly figuring out how to play on my MacBook Pro.  And more and more wishing I actually owned a gaming quality PC.  I watch as many YouTube vids as I can, but if you have any suggestions on how to set up the controls on a lap top or just general advice I'll happily take it.

Well, hello there everyone.

I wouldn't consider myself new as I've been playing the game since August 2014 with breaks, but I only just decided to join the forums.

I mostly play Air RB and AB, but recently got more into Tank RB. I feel like I'm an average/above average player depending on the mood.

 

That's it from me, have a nice day! :salute:

This is great, after being harassed by a player last night for being a “Ace” because of my stats and rank (been playing for nearly 3 years, never mind lol) it’s refreshihg to feel welcomed. I’d like to welcome all new players, it’s a great game if your enthusiastic about aircraft tanks etc, don’t feel put down for not having amazing stats by level 100 players, they was “Aces” once. Have fun and good luck, see you in game. Best regards. ChairmanWow1

Welcome to war thunder. Don’t worry about your aim, took me ages to master it,  but I’m still learning as every different gun has their different aiming points, the higher the velocity the less lead you have to give. Good luck.

Well put!

 

Also remember guys, you should report harassment in-game and mostly ignore them.

I am a relatively new player. I main the U.S. tech trees, and usually play tank RB, but I'm also looking to get better at Air RB. Slowly realizing that a good Attacker is vital to a lineup. Anyways, hello all, and look forward to seeing you on the battlefield.

Re-installed my War-Thunder account (1st played in 2015) but I am still very "green" in this game.

 

Uninstalled World of Tanks - fed-up with the insanity, the pay to win aspect, the disastrous match-maker, the power-creep of the "new" tank over the tanks you already have ( witch become worthless over time) and finally - the introduction of the wheeled vehicles, rendering everything else obsolete ( the new wheeled vehicles are so fast and agile that playing them against medium and heavy tanks is like shooting zombies. )

 

Just went thru the tutorials again and will be looking for a "relaxed" platoon oriented Squadron to learn and enjoy this game.

 

I just wish I had chosen War Thunder to play before WoT - I could have saved a lot of time, $$, and anguish.
