I've never played war thunder, but a lot of my friends recommend it.
Here's a realistic opinion about the game:
Gaijin focuses mainly on Arcade and Realistic gamemodes and has given 0 fucks about aircraft since the ground forces were introduced.They make more bugs than they fix and the matchmaker is dreadful.
The game has great graphics,very good simulation engines,wide maps and a huge variety of aircraft and ground vehicles.
After a while Arcade and Realistic become really boring.
Sim battles don't have a lot of players and matches are hard to come by.
Overall the gameplay is good,the graphics are great,the staff is made of morons and the playerbase is shit (mostly in arcade,a bit less in realistic) and the developers are greedy incompetent idiots who don't know how to run a game properly.
Friendly warning if you start playing : Don't talk shit about the russians... I said "Russians in EU and US servers really have no idea how to play" and I got muted for 15 days with reasons : "Unacceptable behaviour,abuse,racist remarks,foul play"
