Guessing I'm the only here who plays this game..
been playing 9.9 and I can tell the graphics are better in certain areas and performance is better in a lot of cases too. It's a big update and I'm sure anyone who plays it would appreciate the progress they are making. And on top of that.. no bugs! Ubisoft should learn something lolQuote

The game keeps improving - the SEA server unfortunately does not. It's World of Camp down here. Have you tried World of Warships yet? No multi screen support yet but the gameplay reminds me of early WoT. Would be nice if they can eventually integrate the three games into one. Sucks we can't spend gold/credits/exp gained in one on the other.
I don't play as much WoT lately so a couple of new game modes will be nice. More maps would be nicer.
Have to see how it looks when I get home from work Quote

I have played WoW yes. Very fun game. I got into the Closed Beta when it started, got to tier 7 before it ended even though I didn't play much. You can get gold for all 3 games though in the gift shop. Same with premium time, counts towards all 3. However no one plays world of planes so it's useless for that. That project is going under serious changes as it just sucked before.Quote

nice to see updates, I played a lot of World of Warships and got quite a way in before the reset, haven't played much since tbh. I should really as my premium time is just ticking down. Might just leave it until release though.Quote
