Stop teasing me with physics. I get all excited, and then I don't know what to do with myself.  :P

I have to say, excellent trailer. Except for one thing:

Why that experimental dubstep / rock / screamo crossover music? Why not some good, oldfashioned, honest, raw heavy metal? After all, that's what we're driving, as well.

Xtreme music for xtreme tank air.

Cant wait to hold tank tricks competition once physics goes live.

Um....because this sounds better with the trailer and with all the "hipsters" around who are just now discovering dubstep - they automatically "like" it because well...they're hipsters.

The song is great though. Went perfect with the trailer.

Too bad it's falsely advertising Physics though. Who knows? They might ninja it in on the one year anniversary,

I'd actually like a copy of the song haha.

Unfortunately - Subsource's new EP hasn't released yet. :(

You saw physics, and when the tank is in the air you can see the tracks mark in the ground, dafuq

I noticed gaming-magazine awards on the tanks, not clan-logo's. Probably just a only-for-the-trailer type deal.

24 million registered users and 360 battles played = 15 battles per user.

That is incredibly low, indicating just how severe the player retention rate is.

Yeah, I did the math right away too. I think a lot of that is from registered accounts that have never played any matches at all, whether because they're Euro/Russian players who just want access to the forums, people who (against the EULA) used new account codes for alternate accounts in the hopes that gold transfer would be allowed someday, etc.

But Snib's stats do give an indication that the retention rate beyond 100 or 1000 battles isn't high. Granted I have no idea what actually constitutes a good retention rate in the world of online gaming...

I wonder how many of those accounts are duplicates from the server split and accounts existing players made to play on the other servers. I'm sure the doubled beta accounts skewed those numbers a bit.

Another bit of math:

13 billion vehicles destroyed in 350 million battles equals 37.1 vehicles per battle. Which I find rather questionable, considering the fact that each battle has a max of 30 vehicles, and on average ~25% survives.

So SOMETHING isn't right with those stats.

If the 13 billion destroyed is accurate and we take a 25% survival rate as well as 30 vehicles per battle, then 13 billion = 75% of the total vehicles that taken part in battle, or 17290000000 total vehicles that have taken part in battle. Divide this by 30 and we get 576333333 or 576 million battles. More than 350 million, but still not very many compared to the number of registered users listed.
