Since I just recently hit 65 (29/12) I started to wonder who's the oldest active player in WoT? Anyone knows?

Dunno, but you can find some around your generation playing WoT in this nice thread; Are there any other oldies playing, or is it just me... ? The post opener still plays, so you can add 4 - 5 years to it, & is likely among our Elders.

Edit, yus Trillock is now 73. And trolls ingame still claim they do the nasty with his mom.

no idea how old the oldest is, but there are a few around in your age range.

Well, I'm 76, and so of the same generation as Trillock - No doubt there are still a few of us about, and probably some older (there always are) but if they don't visit the forum, we are unlikely to find out.

As for being an "active player", I still play regularly, but whether I can be regarded as "active", is open to debate! No doubt my unfortunate team mates have their various opinions on that score! :sceptic:

 

I have however, taken a leaf out of Trillock's book, and now play TD's much more than I used to - at least that way I can be of some use to the team from time to time - my days of racing around in a Luchs or Pz1c are over I'm afraid (if they ever existed in the first place?)

On a side note, among my earliest memories are seeing my Dad come home on leave in his Army uniform (must have been late Spring '45). I didn't know who he was then, but I remember my Mum's tears when he had to go back again. But then he was home again in his de-mob suit shortly after that, and once again there were tears, but of joy that time!

 

I also remember seeing columns of Churchill and Centurion tanks rolling through the streets of our village - what a mess they made of the tarmac!

That's one of the reasons I have no interest in progressing beyond tier 7 in this game - No interest in new-fangled machinery beyond my childhood!

I know WoT  bears little resemblance to reality, but it does at least nod its head to history from time to time!

 

Sorry - I seem to have rambled on a bit here, so I'll just close by wishing you all, whether you are aged 4 or 104, a Happy New Year and Good Hunting in 2019!  :)

Just shows that some games draw a wide audiance. :medal:

 

Although I suspect that I won't ever become the oldest WoT player around, not unless the game continues for another 40 years or more. :teethhappy:

Snap, also 65.

This is the age we become a burden to society when we become eligible for OAP payment. Well at least I can put it to good use and buy even more gold:)

I know a few in the 70s. Tho Babbet_1 has the highest number I've seen so far. I know of 2 more that are 74 that play in a Norwegian clan, that also has a few in their 60's.

Certainly more impressive than my stats, I'm afraid, but it doesn't impress me too much!

I'm really getting into my 2nd childhood now, so Tetris is the next major challenge!  :teethhappy:

There's a guy in our clan who I think is in his 80s (don't quote me though, not really sure on his exact age).
