hey war gamming better pull the words HISTORICAL AUCCURACY OFF the banner on the world of tanks main web page before someone files a lawsuit for false advertisement and fraud, none of your tanks in game are close to historical accuracy especially the German ones

 

They cannot be sued. The laws you speak of are not international, they exist only in certain countries like the United States and Canada, and a few others. The main body of this company exists in Northern Europe and a lawsuit would have to be filed against the parent company or the main office.

 

Before you run your mouth about Law, do some actual research.

Anyone can sue anyone else in the USA - does not make the person that initiated the lawsuit correct.  Really wish that the USA would implement a rule that individuals/companies that sue for frivolous reason pay the opposing parties legal fees.

 

I guess you overlooked that you agreed to arbitration ...

a lot of them technically do when they catch fire and lose their engines 24/7 from frontal penetrations. . .

And everyone knows, that while broken down,  the German tank turns into a pillbox, that proceeds to destroy enemies accurately and unforgivably at a mile's distance,  before being abandoned for shortages of ammo.

 

 

Apart from being immune to long range fire from the front, they were far from invincible.

 

There are documented cases of M4's killing panthers with the M3 75mm gun just by pummeling them into submission. The panther has 20mm of armor down by the tracks... polish resistance was shooting holes into the hull with PTRD's so they put those side skirts on them, lol.

 

Germans were masters of resourcefulness. They made tanks that were very good despite being made with speed of manufacturing in mind (no casting, interlocking welded plate construction, etc). they also never wasted anything they could loot from other nations when they took ground. However, with the exception of the king tiger, ferdi, jagdtiger and other wunderwaffen stuff that never broke 1000 units made, most german tanks were not as invincible as people thought. They just could shoot you first and that's what important when it comes to tanks.

It depends what you mean by historically accurate. At the beginning of WW II the Germans had mainly light tanks you would associate with the light tanks in the game. They later built PZ III and IV's which were highly successful and could be easily modified. They then made the mistake of building heavier tanks such as the Tiger and Panther, but their emphasis on quality rather than quantity cost them dear, particularly against the Russian tanks which consisted of the highly successful KV1 and T34 which, though crudely made, could be made in larger quantities in factories well out of bombing range.  This prompted the building of Stugs and the successful Jadgpanther which were cheaper to make and good defensive vehicles. I think the Hetzer was present earlier in the war, but I'm not sure how many were built. All the others you care to name didn't get out of prototype stage or were still on the drawing board. Even the Tiger 2, only a handful were produced and that was towards the end of the war.

 

I think WG stretch the credibility of the WW II tanks in the game to it's limits, but I think it highly unlikely it would go to litigation! :facepalm:

 

By all means correct me if I am wrong, but the a lot of tanks on the German tree were not present in WW II. 

 

Guffy.

Guffy.

 

 

Up until tier 9, there's actually a lot of real tanks in the german tree. The Wehrmacht was pretty good at not wasting anything until it was completely obsolete. Recycling french/old german/czech hulls into SPG's and assault guns was a pretty smart move for a country that still carried out most of its logistics on trains and horses. In fact, one of the most crippling logistical challenges for Germany was keeping the inventory and transfer of spare parts organized so that units using 2nd hand gear could get parts for their french tank/troop truck/etc all the way to Russia (for example).

 

If substantiation be thy want, note that Porche's crappy tiger prototypes were made into ferdinands because they needed hulls to carry 8.8cm guns THAT badly.

Certainly the game would qualify as "Historically inspired" ... I haven't seen the ad but "Historically Accurate" when applied to computer game probably wouldn't be held to be that much of a deception in an ad given that we all know computer games are rough abstractions ...very very rough abstractions from actual combat to say the least.

 

... add to that it's a free game and your damages would be quite small if you felt you were 'misled'  which few would feel. ...
