Both critical and positive Reviews are right
By time stroller
Both the good and bad reviews are correct. This Game is lots of fun, but also very expensive. When you hit about lieutenant level you have to start spending a lot of money otherwise you’re just fodder. I’m at that level now with a very highly ranked level 2 tank that I’ve spent at least $2.5 million game coins and $25 US real dollars upgrading. As soon as I hit lieutenant I started getting placed into battles with level 4 tanks - that’s right, level 2 against level 4. That’s like a Mustang 5.0 vs a Prius in a drag race. No way to compete unless I spend a lot of real money to move up 2 levels or just let them blast me into oblivion. Fortunately for me, I don’t care what my score is so I’ll probably just start putting my tank into play, then watch tv and let them use me as target practice daily then collect the game play money necessary to upgrade. I don’t have any complaint about the developers making money on their intellectual property and I would actually buy more stuff if the prices were any where close to reasonable but as many people have said here and on internet reviews, the prices are wayyyyyy tooooo steep. So I’ll play until I can’t advance then just uninstall it and go to one of the MANY competitive products out there. Have fun at the lower levels but unless you’ve got money to throw away move on once you start to need to spend too much to advance! Cheers!
Total rip off
By the dude 654421
DO NOT SPEND A CENT ON THIS CHEATING GAME! They allow hackers to run the game. It steals your money if they are allowed to cheating using things such as endless shields as they do. These guys are full on thieves. This is the biggest scam rip off on here. They want 7.99 for pay to play membership per week, ya 7.99 a week. Or you can play for free always lose never get anywhere. Once I got past the early stages they group you with way higher levels to get you to fork out more money to advance your tank. It’s non stop paying money to play. They charge for skins by the hour. They want 4.99 to change your name. You lose 30 seconds per match unless you pay to respawn. The game cheats, doesn’t give you kills you basically paid to get, filled with glitches where tanks just disappear at the beginning of every match. These developers are the greediest I’ve ever seen. There are way better tank games for free. Avoid this scam like COVID 19. Had to add the fact that I don’t even get full points for kills such as first kill. The game is the worst crap on here. Developers are the greediest bunch of scum I’ve ever seen. The developers don’t bother fixing glitches while they rake in huge piles of cash. They do nothing about obvious hacking cheaters and no way to report them. These are the worst people ever to create a game. They should be fined
Like the action but dislike the cost.

I do like the action. An appropriate amounts of details are included to make the game realistic enough. There are some details that an actual tank should be to plow through or over but you get stuck behind in this game. There are still some glitches that make the tanks act wonky from time to time. In fact, the latest update introduced more glitches than it apparently fixed.
My biggest peeve is the cost. Not necessarily the extra bells and whistles you can buy, you can avoid these easily enough if you don't want them. But it's the unnecessary pop ups where one accidentally clicks on the purchase button cause it wasn't there a moment ago and then cancel said accidental purchase. I suspect many of them still get submitted to Apple and since I do not keep a record of what I do buy and/or cancel, I realistically cannot contest them. There is also a huge disconnect between when I do buy something to when Apple actually charges me for them. Sometimes it's a week or more till I see the charges and that makes even more difficult to contest. Other games I see the charges within a day or two. Improving this alone would be greatly appreciated.
Non-Existent Customer Support-Worst I’ve ever experienced
The game is great when it works. Hands down the best tank game out there.....until you experience problems and you get shortchanged or cheated. Don’t spend any money here. They will take it keep it. I’ve played tons of games over the years and dealt with numerous customer support agencies, and I can say beyond any shadow of doubt that this game has no customer support of any kind. You can never get any resolution, it just keeps looping you through the same questions again and again. If your complaint does fit into their suggested complaints they suggest you choose only one of their choices-all of which are rosy and sweet. They begin to let you think they’re going to listen to you, they take your name and email and just when you think you’re being respected and given support they drop you back into their endless loops of impossible questions. I seriously doubt if this game has any customer support at all. I would have given zero stars if I could have. What total waste of money. This company will rob you blind if you don’t watch them closely. And that doesn’t matter anyway, because when you attempt to correct it-you are thrown into their useless customer support robotic loops. DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY ON THIS GAME-THEY ARE CROOKS!
The graphics are pretty decent, and the first person shooter aspect is cool, but as other reviewers have noted, unless you’re paying real dollars you don’t have a chance. Without the premium package (i.e. monthly subscription) you cant get the tanks, ammo, supplies, or attribute boosting add-ons that will make you competitive.
Something I found annoying was the way you’re assigned to battle groups. I play one match and my low-level tier two tank is up against two top-lever tier four tanks with attack and armor boosting add-ons. You don’t have a chance. Another time I play a match and go 1-4, turn around and play another match 30 seconds later and I’m 7-0. WTH, no consistency. You can almost see the algorithm manipulating you; giving you just enough to come back, keeping it close so as not to totally discourage you, but making it clear that you need to spend $9.99 to get that elusive XXX.
If you’re willing to pay real money, by all means play; it’s reasonably fun. Just know the Russian trolls, and Texas basement-dwellers are one step ahead of you every time. If you’re not willing to pay understand ahead of time there are inherent limitations.
What Do You Get For The Money?
Let me start by saying this game is fun. Let me finish by saying that this game is frustrating. We all know what we consider fun. Let me tell you what I consider frustrating.
1) The developers of this game don’t respond to frequently occurring issues like players not being able to connect into the game. Their response? It must be your internet. BS. We have chat rooms in which our clans chat...all have the same problem...can’t connect into the game. Why is this an issue? Because despite the claim that this is a free game...it most certainly is not. We purchase items that have limited time use. When servers are down the clock continues and our purchase is wasted. This happens FREQUENTLY.
2) Glitches within the game...twitchy aim, shots missing despite point range, spawn within a building, and many more.
3) Response to complaints go unanswered for weeks and sometimes never. I myself have 2 unanswered complaints that are close to a month old.
I could go on and on but it wouldn’t matter. What matters is that the developers of this game have no respect for the paying customers. I have one simple expectation...I should get what I pay for. Here, sadly, I don’t.
The Game is Fun, But.....
Do not mislead yourself. This is a pay to play game, and if you are competitive, eventually you will be plunking down real money to play. There comes a point where you have to buy ammo or a better tank. Yes, there are tanks that can be bought with coins you get in the game. However, those tanks are generally the weakest in their tier, and to get a competitive tank you need to spend diamonds. You can collect small amounts of diamonds in the game, but to have enough to buy tanks, or ammo, you purchase diamonds with real money. As an arcade gamer from way back, to me it’s not much different than pumping quarters in a machine. If it bugs you to pay, don’t play. You will get frustrated with it at some point and quit because your tank will become obsolete. Having said all that, it’s a fun first person shooter game. It requires some strategy and being able to work with a team, or clan , is nice. It could use “in game” personal messages, but it doesn’t have that. It does have group chat. Worth checking out.
Customer service is a joke
Love the game but there are so many glitches these days that they know about and are unable to fix or just will not fix. Customer service that they say they fixed takes 8+ days to get back to you about any problems and after those 8+ days they past a script in the chat and close the ticket so if you’re not finished talking you have to wait even longer to talk to them again BCBS they are off and your forgotten about for another 8+ days. Get ready to break out that wall out because if you want to have any fun you’re going to be paying after you level up your tank you’ll have no choice but to paid for diamonds BC of the way the game is made. Other tanks will pick up items on the field 2 inches away when you have to physically touch the item so you lose out on coins diamonds and health packs and end up dying sooner because of it not being able to upgrade your tank because of it and not be able to buy any patterns or decals because of it this is a known problem they have been sent many video clips from players and refused to do anything about it. So do yourself a favor just find a different game to play.
Good game. Easy to play
I’ve been playing for about 2 years. I’ll play it leave it for a while then come back. It’s definitely not a free game but the fun for me is as you see the tanks and weapons that have been payed for inter the game you are still able to destroy them. It’s obvious which have been payed for. The are always updating the game and that makes it interesting. I would like to see more diamonds inter the playing field or just make the coins worth something. After a point you can have all the coins you want and they don’t buy you anything. In the beginning you need the coins so players are going after them but after awhile most are just left on the field. Still it’s a good game
Fun in the beginning but it’s very frustrating.
Like I said the game is very fun in the beginning although the first tier or 2 is very slow. Then it gets better. BUT once you get past a certain ranking they group you in with all the big boys and you don’t have a fighting chance. UNLESS you pull out that wallet and become a pay to win player. And let’s not talk about the sales ads and gimmicks they bombard you with to try to get you to pay more money on top of the premium if you are a premium player. Do you yourself a favor and stay away the fun turns to frustration very quickly.
And that free week of premium they give you rest a sure as soon as you sign up for that free week they’re going to bill your iTunes for the following week or your Google play or your credit card. Immediately. Unlike other side customer service is garbage. All the glitches that happen you get kicked off the game they tell you at your Wi-Fi. Kind of funny because I have a gigabyte fiber optic service. And you got a love the company name fun games for free. That fun free time is limited.
