World of Tanks Xbox 360 Edition - Page 2

post #31 of 56
Yeah I'm liking it. I played a couple games before I even realized there were bases to capture LOL! We just killed the other team, then I see something about a base being captured one time and a lightbulb went off.

Did you unlock all your levels? That's the only tip I'd add to yours. Unless it was a glitch (beta and all) after my first battle it gave me like over 1,000,000 dollars and stars, so I just unlocked everything. I saw others back on the battlefield who had all their stuff upgraded so pretty sure it wasn't just me.

I have no idea how the menus/upgrading works. if you can explain it, I'd really appreciate it.

I see the money and stars but I have no clue how to use anything. everything has placeholder text or says coming soon.

Yeah, I saw tanks with upgraded stuff and I have no clue how they did it. some tanks had multiple firings at once. there were some heavy tanks out there.

it seems like they're testing the size of skirmishes. yesterday, all the matches I got in were huge tank battles. today, it seems it alternates between large number of tanks and smaller skirmishes like 7 on 7. so far, I'm hating the smaller matches. the round is over so fast. i guess that's good if you get killed early but it sucks if you like more drawn out battles.

I'm not at home but from memory you go into the garage, then you highlight your tank (US or German) then you hit 'Y' button for the details on that tank. Here my memory is fuzzy. There's something in the submenu there you click to upgrade that particular tank. You will see a line of boxes and the leftmost one will be open but all the ones to the right will be locked. Click on them in order and it should ask you if you want to spend the money for the upgrade, just say yes each time and it will unlock it all the way to the max. You have to do it separately for both the US and German light tanks you get by default at the beginning. I think there's a way to unlock medium and heavy tanks too but I can't figure it out. I think this because I saw some mediums and heavies on the battlefield but haven't figured out how to unlock them myself. Ah, betas....figuring it all out is 1/2 the fun.

thanks for the tip! was finally able to figure it out. it's weird. normally, I would think that as you earn money and experience, things would unlock. which you would then be able to purchase.

but here, you have to click on the locked box and then it's available for purchase. I had assumed that if the box was locked, it wouldn't be available to open/purcahse. so first thing I did was fully max out the default tanks. and then I did research in order to build the more advanced tanks. and then I purchased them. what a weird system. I guess it makes sense to a PC person.

I got some action in the M5 Stuart. Love that tank! Uber fast. Great gun. Lack of armor but this is a beast on the move.

Is the beta tied to your account that you used to sign up with? I ask because I got a beta code for the weekend, but I am leaving today to go on vacation and won't be home until well after it is done. If I can't use it, I would gladly give it to someone that will use it this weekend, I just want to make sure they can actually use the code since I signed up for the beta with my email account that's linked to my XBL account.

Edit: I am guessing it works just like any other download with a code, so I will just give it to the first person that PM's me asking for it.

Hell yeah. Just tried it now and despite the e-mail saying it was open at 7am pst today I'm unable to connect to bwnatd which I'm guessing is their main server frown.gif

I got my code today too. I'll guess I'll try it out tonight.
post #43 of 56
just keep track of the hours listed in the email when the beta is available. it's gotten a little longer but it's pretty strict.

Got my beta key this morning, can't wait to tank it up tonight/this weekend. tongue.gif
post #45 of 56
I had a 250mb patch to download when I tried again a few hours later. So they were probably behind on releasing the newest version for this weekend's beta testing.

I'm enjoying the game. It's amazingly loud with my two subs kickin' like mad. I actually don't mind dying (happens to me super easily w/my lvl 1 tank). I can watch other people get owned smile.gif

Could I ask what the sender name was for the e-mail you received with your token? I signed up for this a month ago and haven't received anything that I recognized as the World of Tanks beta code.
