I am 17

WoT kinda has a reputation for being the "old people's game" around here so I wanted to see how true that was

Ummm..  what's with the age ranges? Seems like it's very important to tell if you're 16, 17 or 18, but then there's 30-50 and 50-70.. "Lul who cares, you're old"?

Hi Mart

 

There is already a thread for this started sometime ago

 

http://forum.worldof...ust-me/#topmost

 

It may not be interesting to you Evilier to know a players age, but it is interesting to hear some of the stories people have to tell

Trillock is our oldest clan member at 72 and tells some of the most interesting stories of his life and experiences of the military

But it is. I just find the poll's age ranges odd.

How else could I have grouped them ? 30-32 33-35 36-38 etc.. ?

It's just that 5-10 years difference doesnt really matter after a certain age

In five or ten year intervals.

haven't said anything close to that. Its just that changes happen to one's personality and body a lot more often when you are younger :)

30 is the new 20... but with three dirty dozens, next full number is 40... and I am totally OK with that. :B

I do hope those 16 & 17 year olds only play with their parents watching what they do... after all as it says in the rules
In order to register, players must be eighteen (18) years of age or older.

and

If you are under 18 years of age you must not use or access the Game without a parent or legal guardian supervising you.

Oh im entirely sure that every single person that's under 18 and plays a shooter game plays with their parent beside them. They also probably give their children ideas on how to insult you or your mom via voice chat.

I also believe the minimum required age for WoT is 13, as there is no blood or killing of humans

Too young to be old, too old to be young.

That's what it's like nearing your thirties.

You know the time when you realize you shouldn't be going to those nightclubs anymore, but hanging out in a pub is frustrating because you don't know about contruction stuff or other topics. So you sit at home and drink beer, read, watch stuff. Gaming gets harder because reflexes slowing down, boredom sets in, work isn't as interesting as it used to, but you still have half a lifetime until retirement.

I agree that the age range classification is a bit too segmented.

"As old as my tongue and a little bit older than my teeth" my granny used to say, when asked. In other words, mind your own business! :)
