Perhaps I will try it sometime but I like tanks more, tbh.
Anyway, I did finally find a promo code and got free American premium tank so I started off with Americans, I was having a lot of fun with the light scout tanks you start with and was doing pretty well.
Eventually I decided to try branch out a bit once I was in 1.3 and try a tournament which meant we were in 'realistic' mode. And, wow, it was absolutely miserable. Giant empty maps and German tank destroyers and the like hiding absolutely everywhere, my M2s and the like were absolutely outclassed and worthless. I was dead most of the time before I even saw an enemy. Then I drive all the way back to the objective and repeat. Every other player was just hiding behind rocks and the like and not even trying to capture or defend anything. Absolutely infuriating and that was how every battle in realistic mode went. I dunno if it's the game, my skill level, or just early American tanks, but wow, it sucked.
