They reduced the number of trees but now spawn camping is in full swing just like ah2.  Not good.

Poor HTC can't please us all at the same time.

It's the suddenly finding themselves back to being newbies and whacked at every turn which is driving all of this screaming for Hitech to castrate AH3 terrain back to a compromised version of AH2. Solo tanking in this game is an absurd masochistic pastime. Due to the nature of the programed environment or limitations, there is never a consistency of what you can see versus what the guy sending you to the tower saw through the shadows, clutter and trees. You can only turn off shadows, reflections, clutter and turn the tree detail slider down to "0" so the none matching colors of a tank stands out. Yes, spawn camping, the sport of kings.

This is like the old joke that voters are harsher to their beer brewer if he has an outage, than their politicians after raising their taxes. Death and taxes are certain but, fun and sex is only now.

After the first full weekend of near normal player numbers and many many deaths by seasoned GVers and new names on NDisles, the new graphics and terrain plus even the bugs where shells explode on leaves, trees grab you and ice skate you around,  all I can say is GVing in AH3 ROCKS !
