How much does it cost to become a ZW member? I think last I checked it cost $50, which seemed pretty steep for a mod in my opinion. I did play that free mission awhile back and definitely like what I see.

Default Too much????

Well ArmorEtr considering that Zw is alone modding and taking that game out of the ashes and the mods and missions he has already created and is creating with new large maps, new playable vehicle, bugs fixed , improvements in all areas and new missions it´s cheap considering first rate support!

I paid 35 euros for that game back in 2008($ 45 approx) and what did I get, a bug ridden, unfinished game with 12 missions, no support and a bankrupt distributor.Hell $ 50 is probably what you pay to fill your tank every month or so.
Anyway nobody´s obliged to pay and join.

Its well worth it as the genre deserves that attention that Zee has given this title. This type of WWII tank action has been greatly ignored. I love it! TvT is now just a fantastic experience. I only purchase 1-2 PC titles a year at the most so sending $50 was an easy decision after checking out his work on the Christmas Gift release!

Well, that's what I'm asking about, whats available right now and what will be available in the future? I just wanna know what I get for my money. I understand that we're funding an ongoing project. Is there a detailed list of whats available and release dates for future updates?

Sorry if I missed this info, haven't been here in awhile. I couldn't find this info at ZWs website.

ArmorEtr, my suggestion is that you Pm ZW and ask him; first of all if you can still join( only he can make that decision) and what would you get for the money you paid.However If my memory serves me right there's a post in one of the threads where somebody else asked him the question and he answered. To sum up; in addition to brand new large size maps, new tanks models both playable and non playable for both German and Soviet sides, new ZW-made missions, campaign in different environments( night, rain, fog, winter and autumn),he is also going to increase the scope of the game both in terms of numbers and make it eventually into a war-long sim covering all campaigns from 1939 till war end.What he can actually achieve before the one year membership is up I can't tell but those of us who invested in him believe he can deliver a lot.And if later on, ongoing financial contributions are needed he can count on mine!

Now for the rest, my advice is to find out from ZW himself.

Cheers
