ps at the top so it is easier to read for the mods ...

For any mod reading this - I have discussed this topic with Vuque, Asklepi0s and Bunnycommander (WG Staff and WG Mods) and later got permission from Falathi (WG Staff) to post this topic here since it is mostly about the players (Forumites) from the gameplaysection of the forum meeting eachother. We agreed that this can be moved to off topic after the Tankfest event but that it could stay here till that date. If more info needed please pm me before taking actions.

 

 

Since Tankfest is just a few weeks ahead of us it will of course be fun to know which players from this part of the forum will be there so we can set up some kind of meeting where we can look at some turret (Hi Vuque) or just have a beer and some laughs with eachother. Ipromise to not add you to my list, so no need to be shy ;)

What is more fun to see the faces behind the posts here and the driver of tanks we meet ingame.

 

I know there are plans for dinner and tshirts, but I will let wsatnutter and Joggaman make a post about that in this topic.

 

And they both did.

Contact Jogga for the Dinger Tshirts.

Contact wsatnutter for the Dinner on Saturday evening after Tankfest.

 

I will post the list of players we know so far that are joining but feel free to add yourself to that list.

Just keep the topic nice for a change ;)

Imagine a grumpy old man telling dad jokes with a smoke-burnt voice.

 

Then I can be with you any day you'd want. :P

I think Mr Turtles thread is the first attempt to organize stuff but I'm sure Jogga will come around with one of his own in a while since he have a Photoshop addiction and can probably not help himself for creating something so forumites stand out more than normal :)

Unfortunately Tankfest always goes on in the middle of my exam session at university, so will have to pass even this year... Maybe in 2020 I will be able to come and meet some forumites live! :)

It's worth noting that Turtle promises not to add anyone to his list but he's there for all three days.... just to make sure he won't "miss" anyone I'm certain :sceptic:
