    Short answer - yes. World of Tanks has an enormous clanbase with daily clan wars on a global map, I wouldn't expect it here for a while yet though.

    game now unplayalbe

    UK here too, since the load test and now OB pings for me are halved and lag is nonexistent. Try the cat in a hat's advice

    PC Mod WoW Theme

    Themed PC's can look very cool indeed, good luck on that one. Personally, having been down the watercooled route, I'd consider good air cooling. Water, although it can look good, can be a monumental pain in the arse and doesn't give major benefits IMHO. I ran a full WC setup some years ago cpu, north & south bridge, 2 cards (evga gtx 580 hydro copper). My plumbing was watertight but the factory block on one of the 580's began seeping after about 12 months use... very bad news. I went back to air and was surprised to find the same cpu under a mid range akasa venom tower cooler ran 2-3 degrees cooler than it had under an ek waterblock. I built that system against advice from people who'd ran loops but I wanted watercooling so did it anyway, which is probably how you feel so good luck!

    Unsatisfied customer

    Perhaps, now there is very little 'closed' about the CBT, Wargaming might consider re-marketing the game as it stands as 'early access' such as many game devs now do on steam etc with disclaimers as to bugs, changes and so on. OP, there are many variables on the performance of a PC system and to say that your graphics card can handle it so it should play like a dream is a little naive. You can plop a GTX Titan in a budget PC and you'll not get the performance of much lower specced cards in a decent system. CPU bottlenecking, not enough system RAM and keeping the OS in good order like defragging (where applicable) and keeping an eye on startup and background tasks are but some. As others have said you're probably experiencing the lag and associated rubberbanding that we all get and which is very bad at the moment, try playing very late or very early when the servers are not overloaded and compare your system's performance.

    Invertable mouse control - when?

    While I have sympathy for you (I'm in the same boat - pun intended), don't hold your breath.. http://forum.worldofwarships.eu/index.php?/topic/7287-option-to-invert-mouse-y-axis-please/page__p__227359#entry227359 http://forum.worldofwarships.eu/index.php?/topic/9577-invert-y-axis/page__fromsearch__1 http://forum.worldofwarships.eu/index.php?/topic/9587-y-axis-and-graphics-reset/page__fromsearch__1 http://forum.worldofwarships.eu/index.php?/topic/10773-please-include-option-to-invert-mouse-y-axis/page__hl__%2Binvert+%2Bmouse__fromsearch__1 http://forum.worldofwarships.eu/index.php?/topic/7881-invert-mouse/page__hl__%2Binvert+%2Bmouse__fromsearch__1 http://forum.worldofwarships.eu/index.php?/topic/7736-no-invert-mouse-y-axis/page__hl__%2Binvert+%2Bmouse__fromsearch__1 http://forum.worldofwarships.eu/index.php?/topic/5596-invert-mouse/page__hl__%2Binvert+%2Bmouse__fromsearch__1 etc.. Excerpt from WG's response to my support ticket concerning this - "At some point in future Devs may allow it or implement an option to do so. Still, no promises."

    Started Playing CBT Today.

    I've played all my games with inverted y-axis for 25 years or so, so struggled like hell at first but I persevered (thinking this game was worth it) and even an old dog like me can learn new tricks - it's second nature now, I've started un-inverting in other games as it now doesn't feel right. There is a 'fix' somewhere on this forum concerning altering a line of config in the preferences file but it doesn't work (for me), I raised a support ticket and was told that it "may" be introduced in time but no promises were made. I expect to see an option, one day, as WoT has it. Good luck!

    Can't buy anything, help please.

    Monetary system works fine for me so far, raise a support ticket in customer service center.

    Pyromania skill aint working?

    Maybe RNG loves me (not!) but I often fire a first salvo of HE in all battles, as a result of forgetting to load AP, and set fires without pyromania very often indeed - probably 35-40%. Usually in BB's and CA's.
