I've given it a go and it's pretty fun, just scraped together enough to buy another tank after upgrading the first 3. Problem is you need a "premium player" to create squads.

I can't find the monthly subscription?

Tom - are you paying a one off fee or subscribed?

you pay for gold in a one off manner and then use that to upgrade to premium for 30 days

world of planes is being made by a different company prompting wargaming (WoT) to announce world of war planes. tbh i'm not really fussed by planes, we got a free flying game for going to that iseries and that wasn't worth more than a couple of plays.

Not bad for a new starter, I don't feel like restarting tho  :)

Yeah it's a pain in the arse isn't it i have one too. They also sent the wrong link out with it as well so the code didn't work, the correct one is on the pcgamer forums
