I sat down with a joystick and a headset and dove in with Wargaming.net's last World Of. It is very similar to World Of Tanks but strategy is handled a lot more differently since you have full movement in all directions rather than being exclusively on the ground.
Dogfighting is intense, and work with your team to be successful. If you've played World Of Tanks then the menu, HUD, and interface is all the same but seeing your previous plane shot to bits is thrilling to the explosive end. As I mentioned, I only played with a joystick, but I imagine it'll support a gamepad. The Closed Beta is going to begin soon where I'll play it intensively.
