Play Secret World LegendsLess than a year ago, I faced a crisis as a fan and player of The Secret World. Funcom abruptly announced that it would be throwing the current game — the one I had spent about five years of my time playing and leveling — into maintenance mode and then rebooting the title as a free-to-play quasi-MMO called Secret World Legends. It was an obnoxious, brute-force decision that greatly alienated many TSW players, and in my opinion, did not pay off as well as Funcom had hoped.

The following only covers aircraft, I’m afraid I haven’t really been keeping up with the relative strengths of tanks. The USSR If you have no strong preference then starting off with the Soviet Union … [Read more...] about A Beginner’s Guide to War Thunder – Which Country Should I Play?
