"It's a bad plan that (which) cannot be changed."

How often have you not thought this after a match when someone claims they cannot return to base, people went on to lemming towards one side and at the start of the match already decided it is too late to change their own selection of flanks? Ad infinitum...


Here's another one for you: "Delenda est Malinovka!"  :Smile-izmena: (Malinovka must be destroyed!)

Though this one is probably more true for some of you than for me. :)

Anyone else have any suggestions? ;)

I can't see how this topic can relate to gameplay discussion or help other users in anything but latin knowledge. Moved to off-topic.

Sic transit gloria mundi - or approximately, the glory of this world passes away. I think that usually whenever I nail an OP-4.

One that might be quite appropriate for WoT, though, is:
Ex oriente lux - or "light comes from the East".

As the heavy tank said to the light tank."Nemo me impune lacessit"; No-one provokes me with impunity

Every Tier X tank should have a in-game voice periodically saying "Memento Mori";  Remember thou art mortal.


I find in RL and gaming one must always strike the right balance between the carpe diem &caveat emptor moments.
However I find myself leaning towards the; Sine Virtus, Sine Laus! (No Guts, No Glory!) style of play.



And two antitheses to the bad plan that cannot be changed:

(I)Semper gumby; (Always flexible).
(II) "Optimum est pati quod emendare non possis." (It is best to endure what you cannot change) Seneca
