General Discussion? Or sometimes people are referring to Gun Laying Drive.

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...

 

If you have questions about certain tanks, (or anything else tank related for that matter), and don't feel comfortable posting a thread, you can message most of the people on this forum for advice. This worked great for me, and I was amazed at the positive responses I received.  If you've lurked enough you'll know who to contact about what subject.

I've noticed that around 2k people tend to be browsing GD, but only the same small group ever seem to post. I can guess as to multiple reasons why that might be however i think you guys could really help this place to improve. What we have atm is (kind of) equivalent to locking 100 people in a small space together for a prolonged period, arguements are inevitable. I believe that some new posters could maybe help. 

 

I'm not expecting 2k people to reply, but are there any of you who would consider introducing yourselves, in a thread that doesn't have anything to do with the tired old toxic topics we all read day in and day out? This thread is meant purely as a kind of meet and greet. Even just a very brief introduction, how long you've been playing and tanks you like, would be great :-) 

 

Here's hoping this at least works a little bit otherwise i'll look a bit daft :hiding: nothing ventured, nothing gained though i guess. 

 

Guess I should reintroduce myself since I've changed names, and haven't been around for a couple years. My real name is Nicholas. I'm trying to "diversify" my skill set. Heavy tanks and TD's seem to be my thing, but I'm trying to learn and master Medium/Light tanks. I'm currently at a crossroads as far as my future tanking goes. Since I seem to do best in Hvy and TD I'm wondering if I should just strictly play them and sell all my other tanks, or if I should continue to try and master Med/Lt because, to me, they are tough to master. Always up for platooning. See y'all on the battlefield!

Howdy

Been playing since the game was released but hardly ever on here anymore. The toxicity of the forums really p@@@@s me off so tend to stay clear.

I've been mostly lurking but recently, for whatever reason (boredom, age, extra pepperoni on my pizza, mercs?), I have become active on the forums.

Not sure how long this will last and when I will inevitably go back to lurking, but for the time being, hello fellow tankers!

PS. If you are reading this thinking you may have been ammo-racked by yours truly, the pleasure is all mine. :)

Fair few rerolls waving e-peens. Most threads seem to be complaints about the recent update though. Normally they would have eased a bit by now but people seem really fed up currently.

I've been playing wot on my ps4 since January of 2017. I took a break for long time but now I've been playing very often. I'm a  collective person, I play to get as many tier Xs is possible and not just for fun. I also get involved to any op.I used to play every single call of duty game, but it's getting worse lately so I figured that wot was my game

Hi! Got into the closed BETA back when and have been playing ever since. Started out playing mostly TDs and then worked my way over to heaves and mediums, still not big on lights. Spent way too much on premiums over the years ;-)

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.....

 

 

 

 

 

 

i totally agree with this , average players like me  are  always fair game for the elitists , got my stats checked after i  posted a polite  question ,some of these forumers have egos the size of a frieght train , but most r nice

I hardly post here, I don't want to get shot down in flames, ridiculed or belittled, I sometimes read a thread for advice and move on.

 

I like this game, but mostly only play games in the winter, from about day light saving until jan/feb on the whole.

 

, I can't remember what tank is what and where I'm supposed to hit them and where their weak spots are, I do try.

 

My win rate seems too high, I'm not very good at the game. I assume, rightly or wrongly, it is above 50% as my mostly play tier 3, and by default my 17 crews perks and skills are helping the team win?

They aren't helping the team win by default, they do however provide you with quite an advantage over most of your opponents at that tier.

Been around since 2016, I pop in and out but like reading forums to get info and scoop on things.  While the feeling of some is game on the decline and understandably so ... still enjoy playing game and hope for better things in the future.  Thank you.

Hi all, it's been a wee while since I posted on the forums, had a difficult year, lots going on with health so not a lot of time for online socialising, last time I posted was way back when I had just gained my 1 yr service badge. 

Having now gained my 3 yr  I think I am definitely hooked, know my strengths and weaknesses and am learning still about strategy in different tanks and what works best.  Like many female tankers I took the abuse from guys and got really upset a few times by nasty comments in game chat, however most of the time the person doing the slagging got it the neck from the rest of team and reported, and I gained new friends, and supporters and people to teach me how to play better. Bonehead, you were a life saver, the rest of you know who you are, you all talked me into not giving up and that everyone makes mistakes when first playing and learning. 

My garage sits at over 300 tanks now, all nations all lines up to tier 6, midst of grinding xp to unlock all my 6s, I also have over 100 premiums which I use to make the silver needed for the normal tanks, ranging from tier2 to tier8 all lines and nations, most of the premium tech tree sits in my garage. 

Strongest line is arty, deadly with my American sexton premium, highest kill streak in it 7, close to my first mark on it too. apart from that I am getting the hang of the lights now, and learning to circle and track the enemy heavies so team can blitz them, sorry if have done this to anyone lol. I like my mediums and arty most, struggle with lack of rotational turret on the destroyers though but not giving up. Anyway just wanted to say hi again and that I still haven't lost the bug. Kitty.

I have been tanking for just over 3 years.  Agree with a lot of what has been said about the postings.  Get tired of "this tank is broken", "arty should be removed", and the like.  Play with a 4 others that I met playing tanks and we have become very good friends, even went fishing together.  I like all tanks and all lines.  Trying to complete Russian and German Tree, was getting close until update.  We play for the fun and to win.  We typically don't care about stats, unless ops demand it.  I like the idea of this thread.  I'll go back to semi lurking.
