Hello all Finns,

I'm sorry for all you non Finns but it has been stated that we are so good at English that we are part of the English community unlike all the others who cannot read English so you just have to bear with us. "Go to Finnish forum sections" sorry no can do. As a superior Nordic nation these forums are just as much ours as they are your's so you just have to bear with us . :blinky:

I'm going to write this message in English to avoid the overzealous WG mods even though the content is exclusively for Finns.


Basically we started to think about regular meeting of WoT players in Finland. Nothing too formal, just going to pub once in a month or so for a pint or two and discuss WoT and all other crap. Therefore here is a poll on the dates on which we should select. The pub will be in Helsinki area (including Espoo and Vantaa). So there is a poll descriping the potential options and dates.

Personally I'd go for the first Thursday of each month. As for the pub I'd recommed Gallows Bird or Kaisla (100m from centrail railway station). Let's see what you think.

If you're not from around here don't bother to answer. I'd really wish to post this on Finnish forums but the official line is that Finns are so good at English that we do not need one (and according to Xensations poll Finns are the second largest group in the English forum section right after Brits themselves, so suck it :trollface: )

Regards,
A player which has noticed that beer with WoT players is actually quite nice.

E:
The first meeting
17:00 6.7 at terraces of Kamppi (they're really close to central railway station, they're between finnkino and Kamppi, best to enjoy sun while it lasts) or if it's rainy/too cloudy we'll meet at Kaisla.

I have noticed the same thing (a 24 case of beer and WOT fits together).
But should the meetings be in more central part of Finland, like Oulu ;)?

Sorry mate but I personally live near Helsinki so if I'm gonna organize anything it's gonna be near me. Pretty much whole southern Finland is reasonably close to Helsinki area and that covers most of the population.

If you want to do something near Oulu then go ahead  :smile:

I don't know any other Finnish WOT players, so this sounds pretty nice. I live less than 1 km away from Gallows Bird so that would be a great place for me.  Best days for me would be Friday or Saturday if we're going to have beer.  :blinky: If we get this to happen I'll come any day if I can make it though.


EDIT: Oh, I didn't know you are a finn sharpneli, I'm a fan of your posts in all the tin foil hattery threads.  :great:

Nice idea, too bad I'm way too lazy to drive 300 km from Lappeenranta to Helsinki  :smile:

I still voted for Friday and Saturday, if I manage to drag my lazy ass there, I surely will drink more than a few  :teethhappy:

I think this is a great idea. I'm not too active on the forums though, so a PM might reach me better if a time is determined.

Since driving while under the influence is a bad thing, I would suggest picking a pub that is close to central bus station or railway station. This way us who live on the barren wastelands located outside ring road 3 would have easier time to participate.

I'd also suggest friday or saturday so that we who come from outside the reach of civilization don't have to leave early because of work next day. Actually, make it friday, because weekend specials are not in effect then. No valuable gaming time lost.

I don't know if either of the pubs mentioned is located in vicinity of bus or railway station, but I think this is worth considering. Might broaden the participant list.

And might I suggest a (mandatory) dress code: Any WoT apparel you own is a good indicator of why you are there, and in the unavoidable event of barfight would help us easily distinguish WoT players from other patrons.  :tongue:
