Checking the main wot news portal, saw a little window reading "Who is the biggest noob in world of tanks?" So I click on it... and it leads to your personal wot account stats. :teethhappy:

 

Good one, though it feels a little too obvious. :great:

Arguably that makes it an even deeper April Fools joke :)

Well i got "this is the weekend of the weekends" players all day long in both teams. Was shitload of "fun" no matter win or lost game. It was so "funny" one could get a stroke from all that "fun".

Wanna trade? :coin:

Just more confirmation that us Dingers control this game. Realize the truth, accept the truth, embrace your inner Noob & realize your Dinger potential!

 

Now stop resisting and join the Gold side.

...and I think you have some issues with reading. :facepalm: See the highlighted part to understand they're not in the same sentence, I meant I clicked on it, and then I'm telling you guys it leads to whoever clicks on it, i.e. your personal stats. Just because I didn't write it in a way you expected me to write doesn't automatically mean I wrote it wrong.

I know what you meant, but 'I' refers to you, not to someone else, and 'it' is common to both halves of the sentence and is therefore the same identity. You click on something that leads to the stats of whoever you are posting to. The fact that you do not understand pronouns does not mean I am bad at reading.

It's exactly because "I" refers to me, I used "you" instead, because it doesn't show my stats to everyone who clicks on it, it shows your own stats. Do you not understand what "your" means?... If you don't understand after this, I'm done with this conversation. You can go find someone else to troll.

Good grief. How did you find that? It's been nearly 3 years and poster is buried deep in dinger recruitment thread.

 

 

Besides that, I take it there's no special mode this April's Fools?

There is, the Battle Royale on the sandbox server is actually the April Fool's gig. ...too bad, because I'm not downloading the sandbox client for it.

I'm good at digging out stuff, whether that's good recruitment posters or the enemy team, I can do it.

It's why they took me into clanbattles sometimes, someone has to dig out the entrenched tanks.

I joined but I was kicked out for not meeting my RDI (Recommended Daily Intake) of gold ammo in my racks and making gold ammo default and normal ammo on the "2" key.

It's easier to join FAME than the Dingers because of this ^^

I just keept googling APFSDS/APCR/KEP and so on until I found something I liked, then I changed hue/balance/whatever_it's_called to make it golden. I think it's the image I used: https://upload.wikim...56_fh000022.jpg

I would have never had patience for either.

You like getting shot at. You like (or at least don't mind) digging out campers. You have angelic patience. What are you? Because you certainly are not a WoT player by any characteristic.
