So, yesterday the wife asked what I wanted for Xmas.

And of course I immediately said "Svyatogor's Legend", "Stronk Hevy Russian Tenk".

She was not impressed or convinced, so I would like to call on my fellow forumites to help me construct a cogent argument as to why I need a KV5 in my garage.

Over to you!

(time limited, the offer runs out on the 05/12)

Hmmm, I want a pony, the new Lego castle and world peace.
I hope Santa can't see my search history....

But for the KV5 ? Dunno, don't have it :D

I refer my esteemed brother-man to the arguments trusted by all men down the ages. Pick as your situation dictates*

'How much did your last haircut cost, dear?'
'I've got four** pairs of shoes, darling. Remind me how many you have again?'
'Well I don't need to spend £30 a month on warpaint to hide my wizened bitter old visage in an attempt to deny that I'm getting old and have the complexion of a hog's arse suffering from a particularly nasty bout of piles'***

**Any man owning more than four active pairs of shoes is to immediately hand in his man-badge and proceed immediately to the psychiatric ward. Note; inactive shoes are only those ancient trainers kept for working on the car
***You're on your own with this one sunshine

Your wife is correct, you should not invest real money into virtual tanks. Instead you should wish to go out for dinner with her.

LMFAO.  On the good side though, I only have 3 pairs of active shoes, I take it slippers that respond to a whistle are not included in the aforementioned footwear allowance?

Well that's a thread in itself.

If you bought the slippers yourself, then I think you should actually be down the local bridge club, rather than playing one of these new fangled computer games over the world wide internet thingamy

If she bought the slippers for you, then perhaps we can count them as just thick socks.

You could try:

1 Everybody else has a KV-5. They think I am a sissy because I don't.
2. You remind me of my mother when I asked for a new bicycle for Chistmas.
3. Don't you love me any more?
4. What ever happend to "goodwill to all men"? With a KV-5 I could bring peace and goodwill to all on the red team.

Kruemelchen.... heaven't you learned anything in ZER0???

Internet tenkz are seriouz buizinezz!!!

tell her it's a rare object and collectors all over europe would pay enormous sums after one year!
if she keeps asking for details, show her the ebay-offers for type-giftcards and accounts ;)
Just say, the kv-5 is an additional investment you add to your store of value (your account ^^)

Explain to her that you hate one of your soviet radio operators....and getting a KV-5 will sort him out.

Representing the female population, I'll see what I can come up with.


You could show her how amazingly fun this game is by letting her play it on your account. By getting her hooked, she should understand why the tank is so important to you.

You could tell her that getting the KV-5 would make you a very very happy man, which would lead to some quality time in the bedroom for both of you - WoT viagra if you wish (if the first option doesn't work).

You could give her puppy dog eyes and beg, telling her that you'll accompany to all the things you normally wouldn't (at least not under protest).

Second last resort: promise to do all the household chores for two months (unless you already do the major part of them, then this probably won't work).

Last resort: Emotional blackmail...



BTW; I have three active pairs of shoes... Does this mean I'll have my woman-badge revoked? :amazed:

The dear lady in question did purchase them for me.

I think one of those electric training collars would work better...

Just ask her "Why ask me what I want for Christmas if you don't intend to let me choose?"

It would be easy if you didn´t already have a T 8 premium tank ("If I have a premium tank, I will have more time for you since I don´t need that much time to grind credits...").

Hmmm ...Maybe something along the lines of "Honey, trust me on this: I absolutely NEED that tank and it´s currently on sale! Do I ever ask why you need another pair of shoes?"

Simple.

You can make more creds in a shorter period of time using that said kv5. This will lower your time needed to grind credits and give you more time to spend with her.
Just dont tell her you wont spend less time playing the game after you received the kv5 and it should work.
