While waiting at the baggage claim at Larnaca airport, Cyprus, I managed to suggest to my wife that we now had a great opportunity to go visit Wargaming HQ. A day-trip to see the great architecture of the new office building, and maybe sneak in. 

 

My wife showed no mercy, and almost rage-quited our marriage there and then.... I had to fall back, and just continue red-line sniping...

What would you have done? How could I have played this better? After all this is the gameplay section.

Trick her into teamkilling you, so she gets a ban.
Then you can visit Wargaming's glorious headqu-...
Oh, wait. You're dead.

Hmmm... bad idea. Except you believe in an afterlife. Then you could haunt the devs and force them to fix the game.
I might even look after your wife...

Deal?

Mrs Tagger's response, from the other sofa:

"What's really sad is, I would have said Yay! Let's go!" (She would, too!)

Also, she was born and raised till 5yrs in Cyprus, and has been a repeat visitor since :B

 

EDIT - where does one get what looks very much like a Dingers Hat?

Tell her that you can go to Ledras street for shopping and food ( their common weakspot ) WG HQ is like 5-10 minutes from there by car :)

 

PS: i am a local here, so if you have any questions, concerns, ran into trouble let me know

Not sure that looks like a survivable strategy, Dude... :hiding::arta:

Welcome to World of Tanks Marriage Guidence Service. Your post brings to mind a couple of solutions.

 

1. As a Dinger you should have been firing Gold. It is very rare that a woman does not respond favourably to receiving Gold Rounds.

2. Does she know about your female crew? If she does, then we are sorry but you have lost this battle and will receive an automatic ban.

3. This is obviously a matchmaking thread and should therefore be moved to the correct pinned thread.

It's called the Thermonuclear option. Things are gonna get hot, things are gonna get wrecked & the fallout will leave everything tainted.

Mrs Wellsley was born in the hospital at https://www.raf.mod.uk/rafakrotiri/ and spent her first five years in Cyprus as well.

I generally find bribery about the only option. So gameplay would be (a) load gold rounds, (b) get within spotting distance, (c.) fire bribe at wife in an effort to persuade the platoon to move forward as one to the target.

So was Mrs Tagger! Dad was a teacher at the forces' school...

She also says the only bribery required would be a day spent plane-spotting at Lady's Mile Beach :teethhappy:

Ahaahahaa!! you sir, are funny. That ship was never gonna float you needed to evade the actual reason for going to that location with a smokescreen of total bs and what would make you look like a really kind and considerate husband. The groundwork needed to be done much earlier, take a look at what shops and interests might be in close proximity to the WG HQ that she would be more than willing to go to like cafe's and clothes shops, then when you're both sitting in a cafe, sipping on a Cappuccino and telling her how happy you still are together you, just per chance, glance across the road and "No way!! omg that's the WG HQ! I don't believe this luck we GOTTA go in for a few minutes!!" you know I wouldn't buy that bullshat story but she might, especially if you can unload her next to some multistory clothes shops, you win, she THINKS she wins

I think her winrate is the more relevant statistic.

I'd guess about 95%, which is high considering she is tooned up with a tomato (yes, the sun here is burning!)
