Am curious, how did you find the game?




I started playing to fill a gap in my free time when my ex-gf dumped me. One year later am still single and playing it :trollface:

My friend told me about it and I saw him playing. It was something new so why not. I'm still playing but we have a very hot summer so I give it a break :blinky:

Started with the CBT in February 2010. At college in a class, don't remember which one  :harp: .
2 of my classmates were playing it and I searched it on google, you had to have a key, which you could only get trough invitation.

I saw some videos of wot on youtube and I decided to try it. I made my account in June 2011, but my computer didn't run it. Luckily next christmas I got a new laptop and played my first battle in 24.12.11 :playing:

Was sitting and researching about different tanks, and sudently out of nowhere i saw a comerical. Usually I ignore them, but it was somthing about tanks, so after a bit of research i downloaded the game and started playning it.

I been playning since Open beta. It was the time, where you still could buy the Priemium M6 Heavy tank

I began to play WoT when the PS Network got hacked a few years ago, I looked for some good free games on the internet while the PSN was being fixed and eventually got hooked on this  :blinky:
All of this was to PSN's loss as I'm now a PC gamer because of this haha  :teethhappy:

Was doing quizzes with people at work and kept getting beaten.  So when it was my turn to choose the quiz I googled "Tank quiz" or something like that because I knew I would win.   :trollface:

It took me to a post on these very forums and I've been here ever since...lurking in the background  :hiding:

Started playing when someone begging me to help him in a platoon. Turned out I'm better than him, now he's begging me to stay the fork away from the game.

I saw the commercials floating around before, but I never pay any attention to them. Then this one night when watching TV, I stumbled upon a program freshly introduced to our program scheme, Ginx TV (by the way, I don't recommend watching that pile of crap, the reviews are either terribly biased or too neutral, and they keep on reporting on the same 30 or so games, mostly for consoles only, and the reporters, if you could call them that, are horribly annoying and I doubt they actually "game" at all, maybe as casuals. But hey, that's just my opinion. Judge for yourselves if you'd like). So one of the "reviews" there was about this game, and I decided "heck, I'll try that, though I'll probably drop it after a month or two" (still haven't found any mmo to occupy my time for as long as WoW has). I guess I was wrong, since I'm still playing (though I wouldn't call this an MMO and it can never compare to the epicness that was pre-WOTLK WoW).

My mate kept going on about it for ages. So I decided to give it a go. That was nearly 8000k games ago!!!!!!!  I honestly didn't start to improve until I had about 5500k games. It's without a doubt my favourite game now.

I played once when my husband first started playing but my netbook did not run it very well so I went back to WoW. When I got a laptop I tried it again and I was hooked no more WoW for me blowing stuff up in tanks is WAY more fun!
