Ugh, I am the worst tank commander in the world. But that doesn't stop me from getting back into the thing after I've welded all the armor plating back on does it? No.
In getting a new laptop with the capacity to play some of the computer games I've been wanting to explore, as well as re-explore World of Warcraft, and so far I'm really enjoying it. I'm not engrossed, but I am engaged and I think that is a good thing. I am particularly engaged by World of Tanks. A 'freemium' game that centers around tank warfare based on the stats from historical tanks up through right after World War 2.
It is a very nice set up. For a free account you get four tanks right off the get go (Russian, American, German, and French) and you can earn experience to research new equipment and new tanks then buy it with credits. You can buy gold with cash to get credits to buy tanks and better tanks crews.
It has a learning curve though and be prepared to find yourself on the receiving end of destruction more than you are handing it out. But as my crew have gotten better and I've maxed out the research for a particular tank I'm finding myself scoring more. Like below.
The only thing I'd really ding it on is, not voice communication makes coordinating your team hard, and so far I have no one else I know playing so I can't really put together a clan or a platoon. This game is still relatively new I think so that should evolve... I hope.

|Again, my normal result...|
|Not a bad turn out.|
|HELL YEAH! THAT'S HOW ITS DONE!!!|
