I don't think I've exactly kept it hidden that I sometimes post on the WoT Console forum (inb4 17,000+ posts there as well, hehe) and there's an interesting sort of thread that this one fella runs every week, called "5 Questions with -insert forum poster's name-".

 

What questions it is are pretty obvious, the first 2-3 Tend to be towards someone's in-game performance (things like "You have a large amount of battles in -this one tank- but not so many in -this other same tier tank that's very similar-; why is that?") and the others tend to be towards someone's real life (such as "What's your favourite food?" or something like that). He also almost always adds a bonus question that.. well, isn't very easy to explain. Let's just say it's incredibly random, usually.

 

I'm potentially thinking of doing something like this on here. Make a thread for people to effectively "sign-up" in advance and then when I get the time, do the.. "interview". There's a joke there somewhere. Mind you, even if the actual forum members agreed to it I'd probably have to ask a mod beforehand. But yeah, opinions on that (being Off-Topic I doubt this will get that many views but here's hoping)?

Interview with guest273:

 

1) Why do you play the M3 Light so much?

 

A. I don't, I have touched it one or two times this year.

 

2) But why have you got so many battles on it then? hmmm...

 

A. *face-palm*

 


I always get asked about that M3 Light in my stats...I guess it was my first premium/gift tank so I just made 1,5k battles with it...I don't even remember why I'd want to do that...


But yeah on the off-topic. Could do this, I'm no authority but I support this.

I played a fair chunk of battles (for my standards atleast) in the LTP For literally no other reason than because it was a free Premium. :teethhappy:

I planned to play 500 battles on every tank in the game beck in the days when there were 220 tank in the game... now it's like 400+ and the small tier map rotation has become a ... gg ...

 

So now i'm not sure...I mean I could just dedicate myself for the most of next year to fix the M3 Light stats to 60%+ WR... Nah! Would take ages still.

 

You have amazing recent stats by the way! :hiding:

WR Is effectively padded. No way was I going to play through the Challenger solo though.

 

Some examples of this kind of thread also, though I'm unsure if they can be viewed;

Added an actual name to the idea, "Know your fellow Forumites". Was kinda thinking "Forum Members" since personally "Forumites" has never really stuck to me for some reason but didn't want just the title to it to be too long. I am going to actually make a thread of this in General as that is clearly more likely to get responses and yeah. If a mod could lock this one that'd be fabulous.
