World of Tanks Joins Ranks With Girls Und Panzer

girls_und_panzer anzai_chiyomi


Tank MMO World of Tanks has finally seen reason and joined forces with tank manga Girls Und Panzer in the form of an official manga guide to the game, in a none too subtle scheme to win over both military otaku and the wider social gaming masses.

The “WoT for Beginners” manga is freely available on their Asian site, and has the girls helpfully explaining the relative merits of light, medium and heavy tanks and tank destroyers:







Their marketing putsch also involves Japanese TV commercials featuring the traditional hugely misleading pre-rendered battles so beloved of the industry:

They are also promising promotional patrols of Akihabara, Shinjuku and Shibuya with an actual Type 95 light tank:

    Yeah, after Tier 2 it gets really unbalanced in fights, killing what little fun-factor there was.

    You seem to not understand tank tactics and how weaknesses work on tanks. I imagine you just shooting wherever on any tank just hoping for a penetration. Ha!

    Wouldn't be a problem if it didn't take an ungodly amount of time to go from Tier 3 to Tier 4, but in the mean time in T3 you're still facing off against T5s and getting raped by all the ricochets from their heavy armor.

    Yes an hour is such a ungodly long time to go from T3 to T4. No, just no. T1 to T4 going down a single line takes little to no time at all. T5 is where the real grinding starts.

    The game is much more fun with friends, since you can actually plan things out and/or have direct communication with the artillery.

    It takes some time to get used to the maps and routes you should take, so you won't get shelled right away. It's also a bit about positioning correctly and showing the enemy only your most armored side so their shells are more likely to bounce. We are in tanks, yes, but we are not invulnerable. It takes some patience.

    Thirdly about of map awarness. All maps have something else to do than just kill everyone. Defend base when the other fronts let them through and rush their flag when it's most opportune. Dying doesn't matter if it buys your team enough time to achieve victory.

    The 'problem' with this game is that it really gets good at tier7 and after, you'd have to invest too much time if you're not attracted to it in the first place.

    It gets good at tier 7, but then you get in a tier 9 match and get ammo-racked by a ISU-152.

    In my time playing WoT, I have run into 3 types of players:

    1. The immediate gratification, glory hound. This player rushes straight at enemy and dies quickly. They are also the ones boasting on chat channel.
    2. The campers/afkers. People who "play" to get xp and gold. They drag out sessions.
    3. Players who actually play as a team and learn the role they are to play. They also learn their tank and what it can and can't do.

    You have to carry your team half the time when in World of Tanks, there are way too many tier IX and X old farts playing this game... The Asia server is just a mess of a bunch of languages, I really feel the Japanese will get ticked off unless they get their own server.

    Wtf, those who deinstalled WoT instantly after few hours of gameplay somehow had some big expectations. The Game is pretty damn good. Its all about tactics. Go watch some tutorial videos how to properly use your gear and you will enjoy it.
    Its basically like the tournaments in GuP. Well guess you really got to love tanks.

    No the problem isn't tanks, the problem is the game is a huge grind and the gameplay is stall (no new game modes etc). I play since closed beta btw.

    8.8 is the upcoming patch. There have been...'leaks' (posted in FTR for example) of Japanese tanks.

    Heck there was even a discussion on what emblem the Japanese tanks will be using (the verdict is that it'll most probably be simply the Japanese flag; the 'Rising Sun' Imperial Japan flag was mostly used by the IJN, but not really by the IJA).

    ETA of the Japanese tech tree seems to be 9.0. Maybe 9.1.

    The addition of Japanese language support last Sept 5 was another 'proof' of their increased 'partnership', not to mention that they'll be establishing a Wargaming Japan office (or I think they have done so already, hiring started months ago).

    Ok Here the deal with WOT:
    WOT is the best world wide MMORPG with Tanks (until Warthunder releases theirs) Game is awesome is not all about who has the moeny or not soo you can't call it Credit cards noobs (if you are good you can participate on tournaments and get gold or premium tanks) game is pretty balance (not historicaly) the real fun starts from tier 6 and to get there for newcomers is hard.
    For those of you that say the game suck ask yourself why it sucks??? I got 4 main reasons here rest you can find out yourself.
    1.This game is not made for you.
    2.You suck at playing this game and you quit to fast (go get at least a tier 8 or 10 by then you should know about putting your tanks in a position you dont get penetrate. My Tip try joining a clan that will help you to learn)
    3.A loot of bad player on the server there are about 20% That can play well 11% that are good players , 5% that are very good player and 64% are very bad players NOT BAD VERY BAD.
    4.Dont just play a few battles or just tier 5 until tier 6 there only will be point and shoot.
    BONUS 5:Don't say that with out premium account you can't grind just keep a T5 or 6 that will make money and its ok and for tank EXP how about you just play and learn soo we dont get bad players anymore...

    But you are lying man, for that reason people say to you are a noob.

    The guy who said to WOT is totally unbalanced say the true, many times only for have a difference of 1 or 2 tiers, you cant make a decent dmg, i see a Ferdinand having the last gun cant penetrate to a tier 9 mediun tank russ. The MM is other thing to be bad balanced, i played the game from 2 years and Wargaymning adms say to they fixed the MM but is a lie, for a simple reason: Tier V in a battle of Tier VIII?, Tier 6 in a battle of tier X, the only balanced MM battles are the Tiers 4 to down and many little times tier V, but the rest of times so you are tier 6 to up, you are vs 4 tiers up, and add the bad accurated dmg, is easy see the result, you only be a food to high tiers.

    Really man you only say a bunch of lies, for be a tard or for be a noob, or simple you are the classic guy who only play platoon in your guild but never played in normal battles vs others to test the true, Wargayming make a good game, but ruined them for dont balanced the dmg penetration, the armor of many tanks, for dont eliminated the gold rounds, the MM who only is roulette russian of bad luck many times. And see the comments, many people say the same to me, WOT is bad balanced, so tou are the only who say to is balanced, and lots of guys say other thing, who lie.

    The most recent proub of who i have reason and you are lying is simple: for what reason SPGs are practically extincts? the answer is simple, Wargayming nerfed a lot the SPGs, giving to many of them a horrible reload, 30 secs, and nerfed more the acc, now tell me, what happend to people who have spgs tier 8 to up?, so they are useless they need to sold them, and the time who they expend to reach the spg? who give hime that time.

    Sure man, all you say is the proof of you never played the game or you are the classic Dicklicker of Wargaming who when people report any bad things of the game in the forum, inmediatly appear the dicklickers to say: "Nah you are wrong because you are nub", inclusive for your info many Gms in forum of WOT admit to the game have tons of inacurated and non historical dmg, armor, guns,etc.

    Firts for your nub comment:

    1. Game is not balance for a simple reason: MM, Match Maker, send 80% of the times low tiers to deal to high tiers, Try to make dmg having a Type 58 for example vs a 110? or a Is-3, or a Vk, try mister "IS BALANCED"...bah real players now to be a miracle so you survived in a battle tier 6 vs tier 8, the next is armor and dmg, in this game is really stupid, so you have a gun cal 120, who have a decent penetration, only because you are a 1 or 2 tiers low to your enemy, you cant penetrate him, 70% of shots be bounce, is really absurd, i see a SU-152 Tier 7 TD having the 122cm last gun cant penetrate in 4 shots a M103 Tier 9, and the kid say: "IS BALANCED", pls use your tongue to lick the wargaming in other place.

    2. "Join a clan", sure, and that solved the bad things who have the game, and the noobs of Wargaming because the conformist like you, make more and more patch who dont solve any thing and only nerf more and more the tanks.

    3. Bad players is 20%? haha, bad players exist in all games, but they are not the real problem, the bad administration who have WARGAMING is the problem, for that reason good players leave the game, because Wargaming in all this time cant solved any of the problems, the dmg inacurated, the excesive and bad balance armor of many tnaks, the gold ammo, inclusive the physics.

    4. and 5. You are a lul and that confirm, you played other games or only played this game for one month or never, because farm money in low tiers is one of the most stupid things who have WOT, in ALL GAMES: when you reach more lvl you received more money, More high tier reach more money LOSE, how cant be that posible, who fun is enter to a battle having a Tier 9 so you lose money, and in the case of you have a bad team imagine.

    Pls Kid so you try to LIE to people, bad luck to you because i played this game when started, and for me WOT is only survived because dont have other rivals, for that reason the bad team of Wargaming stay in his glory, but when appear another game or games, wargnubsgamin cry to the heaven.....

    The game is balanced for individual tanks. However, when you come across a platoon of KV-1S in tier 6 or SU-152 in tier 7, you're oh so fucked.

    It's even worse when it's a platoon of SU-122-44, 3 shots dealing 390 dmg (total of ~1200) will most likely ruin your game.

    Btw, the term isn't "Credit cards noobs," its Wallet Warriors. My KV-5 crushes all (literally).

Is Slow, have 2 horribles "boobs" in front easy to shot, too big, Kv1s, arl44 pentrate him in frontal armor shoting in his "boobs" ( i killed one using my Kv1s and before 8.6 be the food of any arty. Prefer Slownator Super pershing, is slow but have a fucking frontal armor who have 2 minimun hit points, but i see in the forum to in 8.8 they nerf the frontal armor, well.

    Lol, Wot is totally bad balanced in dmg, and the diff of tiers many times is fucking high, specially in Tier 8 vs Tier only 1 tier of diff and really try to penetrate a E-75 or a VK45 using a T32 or a Is-3 lol, you make 10 shots, 8 be bounce, 2 make a pathetic dmg, The E-75 make 4 shots, 1 bounce, the rest you are dead. The most stupid be to i shot a Wz-120 mediun chinese using my ferdi tier X gun, and the mtf bounce the shot....

    Other stupid thing is the BOUNCEANIUM armor, they need to reduce the bounce, not eliminate, but need to fix, more close tiers be, more reduce the bounce. for miracle they dont put that in World of Warplanes....imagine the absurd to shot a plane and bounce lol.

    The most funny is to in the forum, many times guys say to Girls und panzer have tons better more acurated the dmg of tanks to in WOT lol.

    Learn to lead your targets and aim for their weakspots... You have to aim and take risky shots, it's almost like playing russian roulette.

    It's also much better after 8.6 when they patched the accuracy.

    Lol say that to Type 59 bounceanyshotinclusivetierX, super pershing myfrontalismakedofadamantium, try to do that when just reach for example and M6 and MM send you to fight vs Is7, T30, and other high tiers man. The other day using my T32 in a battle tier X and 9 lost tons of money for try to make dmg to a E-100, i have the hit points mod, and inclusive having that cant penetrate the side armor of the E-100, and you say "aim the weakspots" ha, pls that only serve when you are vs other low tier or equal tier, but vs 2 lvls high tier be a miracle so you penetrate and make a decent dmg.

    8.6 fixed a minimun, really dont have a real difference man, and inclusive is plagued of nerfs, i played that game when started and the diff is only a 30% to this day of good things to Wargaming doit to the game, the only best thing be the physics bu the rest is equal and worst, they ruined the Spgs in 8.6, and inclusive that ruined the Light tanks who obtain more exp and money for take for surprise the spgs, other thing to be nerfed in 8.6 is the distance os reco, that ruined te TDs who are snipers, dont eliminated the invicible tanks to this day, for Tds and Spgs is normal have a good cammo to make hims hard to detect, but mediums and heavies?, are tons of screenshots to probe that: heavies in 2 mts are invisibles for long time? mediums equal? ha they are more hard to found to the Invisible man.

    For me you are only a simple player who only say "Yes" to all thinks to Wargaming say.

    WoT is a PoS in so many ways. Mechanics, maps, game modes, grinding, userbase etc etc. Everything is just wrong with this game. If you want a proper tank game, ArmA II and it's mods are infinitely superior.

    Even with Arma II and ACE... it's still not very good. Simplified as hell FCS, damage and systems limited by the RV engine.

    If you want tanks, go for Steel Beasts Pro PE.

    Bro, you made that your shell didn't penetrate a 30 degree slope?

    Find weakspots.

    However, if there is a fault in this game, it's the non-ranked match placement, which screws you over when the enemy team gets a unicum platoon.

    Find weakspots when you have a tier 5 and MM send you to fight to tier 8 who kill you in 2 shots.

    The MM of this game is more bastard to Mephisto from marvel comics.
