World in Conflict is possibly my favourite game i've ever owned. I managed to get into a good clan during play and experienced its pretty amazing Clan play where the two clans have a server allocated to them by the game to play a match. Also had a huge amount of time online playing MP with random pickup and join. Unlike most RTS games you don't have to set up a server, get the players together, choose sides etc. With WIC the servers are running much like FPS servers and you just pick one and into the action you go.
With the latest Expansion Soviet Assault and its release on steam the game is getting more attention. If you only play MP then their is absolutely no reason to buy the expansion just connect into your online account through the game and it will patch you including all the additional Soviet Assault aspects - which arn't much but taking off the CD protection of SP and adding 2 maps helps
It also means if you spot the vanilla version in bargain basement then grab that instead
Love to have others in GT join in the game is totally team based - without a reasonable team its hard todo well. It works on a very clear rock paper scissors philosophy
When you join the game you pick one of the above and then hopefully work as a team to take the objectives. Number of game types but my favourite is domination where you capture and hold positions. The longer a position is hold the more the bar moves in your directtion. When it gets to the end or time runs out its game over. Which adds another great point about the game - they're all less than 30 minutes a hit.
Had a great game last night, team were all over the place. Had a guy ranting on the air waves but in a fairly humours way. Then it all clicked and in a ame where both teams scored + 8000 points, we one by 20 - I wish i'd had a screenie
If anyone does pick up the game or has it and fancies hooking up i'm in as tals
