I stuck my head of above the parapet after one year today of not playing to see if things have changed in the game.

Apparently not according to the forum.  Same old, same old.

 

It's a bitter pill for people to swallow, but here goes..... the truth after one year

 

The truth about giving up the game is you discover that it's human nature to believe that you lose because of a rigged system.

How do I know this?

 

Because I've played a lot of Microsoft Klondike.  Months of Microsoft Klondike.  And it's rigged.  It really really is.  

There is no way you can lose so much unless Billy (no mates) Gates has deliberately rigged his version of patience against me.  Has to be.  God's honest truth.

 

or maybe not....maybe I am just crap or it's random. Hmmmm....

 

I miss the game.

 

Question therefore is, how can you re-join and keep your sanity?

 

Tips please...... as there is no way I want to go through the pain again, but I miss the game.

 

Note:  Stella works quite well, but by god my aim is bad.

Play arty and you expect to miss anyway so the alcohol isn't an impedance. :)

Easy steps:

1 Draw a fish in mspaint and post it in our recruitment-thread 

2 Register/activate account on the Dingers-forum and write an introduction-post. 

3 Profit (Dingers membership/logo on your tanks.

Toon more.

 

This way you get three times the support, three times the p1sstaking at your death sympathy, three times the humour, and you learn lots of new words for rude things in TS.

Arty.

Seriously, I have never had more fun smacking self-righteous elitists than I do right now.

Yes, it's petty, yes it's childish - but it makes me happy listening to them whine:arta:

It's a game. Don't take it seriously. Play for only an hour or so per day. When it starts irritating you, stop playing for a week.

Plus, don't install XVM.  When you die go straight back to the garage, unless forced to watch your platoon mates.  Never look at your stats anywhere.

 

Of course the problem with the latter is that if you post on the forum then some twerp will insist on bringing them up when they have run out of arguments (generally their second post in any discussion).

To be honest you might not be able to


Some people get stressed out over things far too much for their level of significance, so if you regularly had rage quits, kicked the cat or broken keyboards of mice because of your "frustration" at the game then its probably not for you

Unless of course youre from one of the "soap opera" generations who dont feel alive without artificially introducing drama and stress into your life, in which case its PERFECT for you as those people need stress and things to rant and rave about like the rest of us need oxygen

But unless the annoyance with the game was a proverbial straw on top of RL things which have now evaporated or the things about the game that frustrated you have now changed then why would you expect it to be any different?

Insanity is doing the same thing but expecting a different result

This, and stop playing shitty tanks. Get some FOTM superheavies and go stomp stuff.

 

Alternatively play something that's bad enough that you don't expect to do good in it. I still play FCM 50t for that reason. There's so much wrong with that thing - but despite being a powercrept castrato-Skorpion it's kind of fun to play if you set your own goals. It also has some 'comical value'. Ramming stuff or winning fights you really shouldn't is pretty fun. Kind of the same goes for the KV-5, which is more fun but much more expensive to play.

Quite a lot on the forum probably isn't even 1% of the EU playerbase and it's always the same people complaining.

Play tank you find relaxing. 

For example, if I get overstressed, I jump in my AMX40 and go to troll lower tier noobs. All this sealclubber with Pz1c, PzB2 etc crying because can't pen me! :trollface:

Or my recently bought KV-2, just to see tier 8 med scared to move because you're aiming at them! :justwait:

Basically enter fun mode! :)

That's not an approach..

 

Instead, try to find what makes you enjoy the game more. There will be games that you'd be dissapointed by your team either because they are monkey spawns or because they are blind. Don't let it get to you, blacklist who you don't like and move to the next game :)

Chances are you won't see them again

Play light tanks and assure yourself that everything that went right was because of something you did, while everything that went wrong was because someone else messed up.

 

Its how I get by on the bad days.

Hey now look team I spotted 10  of the enemy team and kept many of them lit for most of the game not my falut you couldn't kill them.

ok games lost lets see how many enemy tanks I can finish off.

Its great a personal battle between you and the enemy players as you try to outsmart them even if the game is lost.

You can usually do pretty good with xp and credits too.

Well tovarishch, you buy a Locust Chi-Ri and play it exclusively. :girl:

Add your favourite voicepack and bam, fun guaranteed.

 

Just whatever you do, stay away from tier 8 tanks.
