As some of you may be aware Gooples unfortunately left this planet in July this year. I got to know him reasonably well and have been asked by members of the Dingers to inform you of his demise.

 

As some of you are aware Gooples was involved in the underground Poetry scene and a major player by all accounts. They say you live by the pen and you die by it and in Mid July Gooples was involved in a poetry drive by in Leighton Buzzard, Hertfordshire. Apparently three bearded men appeared from nowhere, mused for ten seconds or so and then slay him in hail of abstract prose. Gooples died instantly from serious thought provoking irony, observation and challenge. 

 

In the short time I knew him he taught me to use tanks properly and my personal playing has increased dramatically (rather dramatically actually) since I rejoined WOT and joined the Dingers clan. Its almost like his ghost is with me and guides me on the Battlefield. It'd a testament to the man that his spirit lives on in others.

 

I hope to see some of you on the battlefield and I hope i can carry on in the same spirit Gooples did although he is a hard act to follow.

Gooples - 1969 - 2015 RIP

RIP Goop.

 

Dastardly trick using abstract prose.

 

Bit like using APCR on a LT.

I once knew of a chicken farmer who met his demise in a hail of pullets. :hiding:

It's all a conspiracy! It was agents of the Dear Leader, but it's all been covered up.

Seriously some ppl need more info on this? Isn't it clear enough? It was:( of Gooples.

 

The brother in arms, the warrior, the poet...

I had a suspicion that "is of gooples" was still wandering on Twitch strims spreading the wisdom, using aliases such as Spiritual_Leader_Kim. Guess that wasn't enough to fool the agents of evil...

That fits the MO of an East Korean poetical philosophy hit-team.  Those bastards are trained in the dark art of counterpoint free verse.  Ruthless.

At close range, Gooples didn't stand a chance.

It's ludicrous the amount of damage a well aimed stanza can do, when is the government going to outlaw their use in public.

Here, here, never a bad word, sense of angst, or even the slightest hint of dislike towards anyone from our beloved Gooples. He will be dearly missed.

Thank you.

 

Gooples would have been proud that a slanty eyed proletariat tank commander had sent so many of the capitalist dogs to their maker.
