It's often akin to jumping into a pool of water when you have no idea how deep it might be. You might jump in and be ok, or you might hit the bottom and break your legs. With that said most threads that start out respectful and well worded do well and are the deeper water scenario.Threads that start with angry posts tend to be the shallow water scenario.

Read several pages, and it is nice to see many posting.  I have been addicted to the game since I started in Jan 2016.  Found the forum and learned a bunch.  When I am unable to play, I like to read through the forum.  We seem to have lost many that posted from the beta times, and they have also helped me a great deal.  I went through a cranky stage while I was defensive about the game, but I hope that I am helpful overall.  Ultimately, with anything, evaluate recommendations, then do what works for you.

It's time to drive broken tanks with full premium ammo.  Have a wonderful balanced day courtesy of update 4.6.

Currently over 3000 viewing Gen Dis.  The forum seems so stale though.  I am on the addicted to forum side.  I would like to think I have evolved to being constructive, and it just feels that the forum is steadily declining.  This alarms me as the game will probably follow.  Many have written on declining game numbers.  It would be great to rise the game back up.

I've been playing for a year and honestly didn't think to look for a forum until I applied for the test community and it asked how many posts I generated, none. I love my T29, and I have 4 tier 10's and a bunch of 9's. Love playing heavies, mediums, and td's. Side note, if anybody needs a dependable 7th for tournaments let me know. If I tell you I'll be there I will, need a dependable crew.

Well, if memory serves me right, this company, like so many others, has no regard for freedom of speech even if it might be a friendly jab.

More of a lurker/reader than poster in general.  Bought a PS4 on Feb 19th, 2017, installed WoT on Feb 20th and haven't really done much with the PS4 expect play tanks.  Found the forum in Nov 2017 when I was wondering how to improve my game.  Lots of great posts/guides.  Though old habits die hard, I'm slowly improving. 

 

Back to lurk mode I go...

Hello all.

 

I post very rarely as I can't usually be bothered to try to recall my password (yes, I was lured in by those comic book codes.....).

 

I've been playing a couple of years. I'm still not very good as it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks, but I try my best. I've got three marks on my KV1 but that possibly says more about that tank than my skills!

The points are redundant now so don't worry about that. They moved on to a strike system. They are permanent for some barmy reason, and if you get 5 you get a permaban. Be wary of those, but forget about the points. Not sure why they didn't just erase that part of the profile box. 

 

Welcome back btw Dennis :honoring:

Well, I'm coming up to 3 years in tanks, daily player, but never gonna be better than average cos of age and reflexes.

Why do I just generally lurk now?

Its all been said above.

Most active threads are between a handful of people who appear to have known each other since beta. The have strong opinions.

My previous attempts at joining in result in one of two responses:

1) "Hey guys, LOOK... another STOOPID NOOB giving an opinion!! --check his stats! LOL!.... $%$£ off and "git good" moron .....before you say such stupid things here...

2) my post is just ignored.

Why bother?

Lurking is productive for information, posting is just a waste of time unless you want your unicorns horn stroked.....
