Is world of Tanks Realistic ?
World of Tanks - Ready for Battle
World of Tanks is trying to be a very realistic game and it is pretty successful at that. Just like in real life before you go into battle you first have to check everything to be sure you are properly equipped to go on the battlefield. Most important things are the ammo, the crew and of course the tank that you are using to go into battle. You have to check if you have loaded your ammo to be able to shoot on something, you can wake up in the middle of the battle that you forgot to prepare your ammo. You also need to have a full crew to operate the tank properly in order to have a chance against your enemies. Also, after each battle you have to see if your tank is fully functional and if it needs repairings. Anyways if the tank is damaged you will not be allowed to enter a battle, but you have to be careful about the other things as you can start the game without ammo or crew without being warned by the game. For the ammo you have a nice bar that is showing pretty clear if you have loaded the necessary ammo.
Speed + Light Tank = Jump
You can also jump with your tanks, but you have to be very careful, you can take a lot of damage if you are trying to jump over a cliff or something. Depending on the way you fall you can take a lot of damage that will more or less be the definitive factor in losing the battle. Not only the tank can take damage from a nasty fall, but also the crew members can be damaged because of it. For a better understanding of the physics of the damage while jumping and falling we recommend to go into the Physics Room and have a look there. Even more than that, with a properly propeled tank you can go into new places on the map from where and diversify your strategy in battle by using this skill. As the jumping feature the climbing on rocks needs practice and attention, some places may be too hard to climb and you may lose a lot of time while trying to climb them.
