2012 was a tough year me for in real life so I took a break from gaming to fix some issues and only just came back to world of tanks.
Everything has changed so much since the beta is there any other REALLY OLD players still here kicking the butts of the newbies?
Here is an ancient photo for old times sake.
Beta times.
Props if you remember its name.

Yep, active a lot lately. Was playing WoT since the early Closed Beta. The game changed a lot indeed, starting with graphics along with nations, gameplay changes and other things. Hope to see you in-game and in case you are looking for a clan Team Banzai [BANZI] is recruiting members currently.

aaa back at the old stage of BETA were the SU-152 HE shell was the way to give a MAUS a bad time and since you got dumped into tier 10 battles anyway you made great profit. couple of MM fixes and HE nerfs later it's no were near it's old beta glory.

I miss the old Hetzer with the derp gun I used to PRAY for high tier games because you could make so much money.

I have no idea how long I have played. I was in the closed beta, lets see what I can remember:
  • I experienced at least 1 soft wipe.
  • I got the award premium tank. Still play it, max tier 6 matchmaking is quite a fun thing to have.
  • I remember the tech trees were so nice and simple. Actually if I remember correctly we didn't even have the US tree at first or am I dreaming?
  • My sig is also quite old,. The guy used to be a forum admin and T-43 was the top tank of it's tier back then.
  • If the forum date is somehow in accordance when you got in the beta and as the closed beta started in January I believe, I was about 6 months late to the party.
  • One fond memory is how the spg doubled as a TD but that was still quite a recent memory, you could basically even rely on shooting on the move if desperate.
  • I remember when the release happened you had several matches of 15 vs 15 beta award tanks.
  • I remember when a person got the first Tiger and KT ( I think it was the after soft wipe one ) as the person shared an account so one person slept in one timezone while the other grinded, the server chat was buzzing and when you got in a game with the guy it was amazing to see your first Tiger and then KT in action. Such a rush.
  • I also remember the fun choppy detection mechanics of tanks, light tanks were so hard to hit back then. They warped out of space and time and appeared seconds after.
That is enough of memories.

I remember facing IS-4 with my (still) favorite Easy 8 on regular basis... The bastard was immune even to HE fired at his ass.

I also recall being tossed to tier X battles with tier 1 - 2 tanks (MS-1 go scout!).

+ Forever the randomness : what are the odds of one shooting a full HP Pershing (tier 9 back then) with M6 armed with 76mm gun (best LMAO moment of the closed beta)?

Thats  what we look like to new WoT players, especially making such threads >_>
But i like 'em!

Theres much more of my thoughts, but i dont want to spam that much. Plus my grammar and weird style of writing makes it hard to understand i guess.
