I figured I'd start a thread where everyone could post their own ideas on how to make this game a more immersive experience.  One thing I do is to use a bluetooth speaker and put it between my legs.  That way, when I shoot, my nards vibrate.  It's just more realistic.

Make the in-game environment more reactive.  Shoot the black oil tanks in Copperfield today, and they blow up.  But they don't splash damage the tank hiding behind them or cover him in burning oil.  It would be cool to be able to hide in buildings, knock down a bridge to channel enemy movement, drop a water tower on a bad guy, etc.

I do not think that fixing a track instantly by pressing a button is realistic enough for my taste. Therefore, I perform this following procedure whenever my tracks are disabled:

 

1. I buy the same tank that I am driving in-game from a real-world tank dealership.

 

2. I place some high explosive on the drive wheel and set it off in order to destroy the track.

 

3. I labor hard for several hours, manually fixing the destroyed drive wheel and track. I make sure to weld the debris back together and replace the axles driving the wheel. Here, I make sure to vigorously exercise while doing so in order to work up a gushing sweat, because in a real tank battle the crew members fixing the track will have begun sweating, nervous that they are about to be killed while outside of the protection of the tank.

 

4. To test if I have sufficiently fixed the drive wheel, I jump into the driver's seat of my tank and drive it for at least an hour. To simulate a real battlefield experience, I trespass on a US military base, so that they will begin firing live ammunition at me in an attempt to annihilate my tank. From this little drive, I can tell how well my previously destroyed track functions. 

 

5. Once I am completely satisfied with the performance of the previously destroyed track, I leave the tank and head back into my house. Then, and only then, will I allow myself to press the Repair Kit button in Blitz, because I know that my track has been repaired in a historically accurate fashion.

 

 


Google "succulent chins" and click on the first result. It will be very much worth your time! Some satisfied customers:

"T'was worth the read, but I shall never read it again. You have amazing writing skills, though. Teach me how to writeeeeee!" -you happy now?!?! HUH!?!?

"lol, googled succulent chins. It was worth it"

"10/10 wouldn't read again"

I place our largest boiling pan over my head while a play a battle. And I give my littlest daughter a large, steel spoon. Then I tell her that whenever I get hit in the game, to give the pan a solid wallop with the spoon.

She's really into it. Realism rocks man..

This is an extremely small thing that bugs me more than it should... Why can't we get a sound effect of the shell sliding into the breech!? All we get as of now is a click indicating we're ready to fire. I'd just love to get the satisfaction of hearing a 152mm shell being laboriously loaded by my crew.

Playing The IS-3 with Russian crew voice.

 

as someone mentioned, have someone shake you aggressively while playing.

 

also buying a used Sherman (even a wreck would do ) and playing your M4 while siting  inside - WiFi signal might not be great but you can set your router directly inside as well.

I like it but I don’t think you are going far enough. Get a 50 gallon drum, sit inside on a very short stool, cut a 2” by 6” hole just below a comfortable eye level, put a remote 4” by 12” remote display outside, put the lid on then  have her hit the drum with a sledge hammer every time you fire. When you get hit she knocks the drum over then hits both the lid and the bottom with sledgehammers. When you get destroyed she pours gasoline inside and sets it on fire while you try to get out of escape hatch in the bottom of the barrel. I grant you that your daughter may require some mechanical assistance but it will definitely make the game more immersive.
