Right there with you, auto correct is the bane of my life (when typing anyway).

If we look at what people use the forums for I would speculate the main reasons are looking to resolve an in-game issue of some description such as lag, [edited]about a tank being OP or WG decisions in general. I would suggest that if people in the WoT console community want to communicate in real time about the game you head to Twitch and watch some of the great streamers the XBOX community like TottenhamOrDie, GoliathGamingTV, G_E_R_A, and DirtbagGaming to name a few. IF youre a new player looking to get better at console tanks its a good place to go to watch and learn since it is a separate game from the PC version. Veteran tankers can also find and help newer tankers looking to improve which having more competent tankers can only help the community as a whole.

Hi.  I am definitely a lurker.  I started playing on the 360 in the spring of last year.  Got a PS4 this past x-mas, currently on there.  I check in here to see what's going on and see what people's opinions are on different topics.  I also browse around trying to get feedback on tanks I'm having issues with.  I rarely post, just look for previously written content.  I honestly am very hesitant about posting because of some of the negativity on this board.

 

I do appreciate the help people try to provide, unfortunately others don't take it as help.  It has helped improve my game a lot.  Still looking for some people to possibly play with and maybe help me get better.  For those who want to sneak around and check my stats, my xbox account, which I no longer use is "toad man ii".  It's been a totally different experience since finding the boards, as you can tell from checking my PS4 stats.

 

So thanks to everyone.

Been playing since a couple months after 360 beta. Don't have too many games, played on and off too much, but got more into the game recently.

Why am I a lurker? I'm not very talkative, so I usually only chime in when I have something worth saying. This is true for me in virtually every aspect of my life. I surpassed two years on this game less than a week ago.

 

Important notes: I am morally opposed* to the use of premium ammo. It is P2W. With rare exception, I only use Free XP when I am less than 2k XP away from unlocking the next package or tank. This means I give every package/upgrade "the 'ole college try" (unless the item was researched through the previous tank:P), and earn/play all my tanks the hard way :playing:. The challenge is half the fun :izmena:! Hehe, I'm unusual: when I roll out my Waffle, I use HE shells in the four-banger gun :teethhappy::trollface:. It is a bigger gamble per clip, but it is my way of balancing it lol.

 

How I play: adaptive, mostly well-rounded (regarding tank class, anyway...). Statistically, I am overall average/above average. IMO, that has a lot to do with doing quite well in some games... and then getting totally SPANKED by matchmaker. Also, getting home from work at around 3am (eastern) means I play at the lowest server population of the day, hence why MM is an issue: you cannot always escape being trolled by spawn camping top-tiered numb-skulls on your team. If I'm the only person to push the hill on Prok., bottom tiered, then I'll come back to base & bump that camping top-tiered heavy, throwing off their aim! No point spotting reds I can't penn, and greens can't see! Moving on.

 

I am least fond of light tanks. The speed allows aggressiveness, but aggressive actions in a light tank are generally punished swiftly. That said, I got my first MOE on my Brazilian Bulldog (Earn-Op) in 90 battles.

 

Ranged accuracy scratches a certain itch in my brain, so TD's & arty were natural fits. But I do well enough out front, as well (when role-appropriate)!

 

seem to excel at slow bricks of armor (Proto., The Mighty War Duck/AMX 40), or slow bricks of all gun (St. Emil, ISU-152).

 

I'd probably have more than just my M44 two-marked or better if I didn't use only standard AP & HE shells. Oh well.

 

I feel like this post has been both long winded, and I might be forgetting something lol.

 

Not WoT related; more about me.

 

 

*= I keep a single prammo round on my M41B Brazilian, and about 5 clips of prammo in my Blitzen. This is for when I'm majorly outgunned, and need to "Scooty-Puff Jr." my butt out of there! Gonna kill the red? Not likely! But that higher penn might bust a track or turret ring, letting me run. Maybe.

I'll try to post a little more... been a lurker here on these forums for years, I don't really know why its just funny to read people complaining about what should be common knowledge of the game mechanics. Just came across this post and it inspired me to be a little less anti social. Been playing tanks for 3 years or so, a few months after it was released on the 360. I was in the IRON PIRATES for a bit, nice guys and all but didn't really work out. I don't think I have it in me to really platoon up or do the clan thing, I do much better as a solo player but I generally try to win and support the team, not playing selfishly if its decent and a push is being made. Though sometimes that's pointless and its better to go for the kills, am I right?

 

So hi to all of you out there in tankland. See you on the battlefield gents, i'll be there when you least expect it.

I am definitely a lurker. I usually come to the forums for a good laugh or get the latest news tips and tricks. I have been playing World of Tanks since the 360 beta days. Although officially, I am somewhere between a year 2 and 3 player because I switched to Xbox One about the time the 360 beta ended and was involved with a Battlefield 4 community. After about 6 months, I fired up the old 360 and downloaded the actual game and been playing ever since.

I rarely post as any opinion will have a unicum that disagrees and uses your stats as the reason why you're wrong. Also, generally I find by the time ive found something to post on someone/people have already posted my exact thoughts

Still worth a shot, might get inb4 the regulars and buck the trend. :P 

I think the Motherland introduction was the time I really came out of the shadows, definitely worth having a voice here.

Hi fello Tank addicts 

 

I'm relatively new to console but have other 24k games on blitz , im slowly getting used to the new bigger maps and how the tank roles are much more defined on console imo.

 

I feel theres a few things that stop people from posting on forums , fear of retrubution , people being absolutely rude,  other people complaining all the time and taking the time to make a post only to get some guy with over 6k post go "o i notice you have 1 eye" its just silly.

 

I for one would love to get a more diverse community of posters so we can get a better understanding of the player bases true feelings and not just the same old crap like this fantasy that we all use prem ammo to ptw (im a massive gold noob on both platforms and i hardly ever use it as im to lazy to reload haha) or WG are run by an evil empire who plan to take over the world ( yea thats the model for every business in a capitalism world so why cant WG use it) and so forth. Even saw a guy say he had 2 marked a tank and would have had loads more if he used prem ammo , well...... im new to these maps/game meta , never use prem ammo, im known for yoloing and ive 2nd and 1st marked alot of my tanks so far just having fun.

 

My point is i want to see more posts for players whom are just having fun and want to share and learn and not just uncalled for complaining,  don't get me wrong i know the forum is a platform where we can get WG to listen but the real issues get lost due to this alot of the times i feel. 

 

To the original poster epic post mate and i hope to meet all of you on the battlefield somtime!

Kind Regards 

Raider
