Ode to World of Tanks.

I’ve played this game for many a year,

Jumped with joy and shed a tear.

It’s given me lots of digital fun,

As I drive around firing my gun.

 

I can feel the excitement with each new game,

As I hope to get high in the Hall of Fame.

As the seconds count down, I anticipate,

Just how I’ll do with each team mate.

 

Often, I look at the map we’ve been given,

Hoping I won’t find myself driven,

Into a corner by a tank which is massive,

So, at first, I am cautious, some might say passive.

 

But then I feel the Adrenalin rush,

The urge to destroy which will suddenly gush,

Into my mind, so then I decide,

That it’s time to engage, not sit and just hide.

 

Then off I go across the map,

Looking for a serious scrap,

Where I might earn some serious score,

Thinking myself to be very hard core.

 

An enemy tank is now very close,

So, I decide to give him a dose,

Of what my tank has to give,

Determined this enemy tank won’t live.

 

Then all of a sudden, there is a big flash,

So, to the repairs my fingers dash,

Knowing that I’ve been sadly hit,

And the words I say often rhyme with spit.

 

I’ve been lit up by a wretched scout,

Which makes me smile, curse and shout.

Knowing that now all guns are trained,

On my poor tank, and some are well aimed.

 

Being so rash, my end is complete,

So, I can only accept my defeat,

Thoughts of glory were just a mirage,

And to play again, it’s back to the garage.

 

I must choose another tank,

From my fighting vehicle bank,

If I am ever to complete that mission,

Or get my crews to a higher position.

 

As I press ‘Battle’, I wonder if,

I will get ‘Redshire’, or my favourite, ‘Cliff’.

This time I’ve chosen my E-25,

With a much better chance of staying alive.

 

Some of the maps have buildings galore,

Which always makes me have a bad score.

On some of the maps I’m not very good,

Or perhaps I’m not playing the way I should.

 

Then the trolls come out to play,

Brave little people who choose to say,

Things which hurt, and are so unkind,

Spewing forth from a childish mind.

 

But then the designers introduced ‘Frontlines’,

With a massive map where I seem to do fine.

With the chance to repair, and then to re-spawn,

I could play this game from dusk until dawn.

 

Whoever thought this up should receive,

All of us tankers thanks I believe.

A brilliant concept which changes the game,

In which no two matches are ever the same.

 

With artillery, smoke screens, airstrikes, inspire,

This is a game of which you can’t tire.

With miles of hills and open land,

This really is a battle that’s grand.

 

Sure, it will cost you if you should lose,

Or get blown up by the enemy’s ruse,

But you have the chance to reappear,

To use a new tank with all of its gear.

 

Those Wargaming chaps are indeed very clever,

As they constantly strive to improve and endeavour,

To make our gaming rewarding and fun,

And I’d like to give thanks when all’s said and done.

 

I’ve played this game for about seven years,

Experienced plenty of weeping and cheers.

My progress is slow in other’s eyes,

But enjoyment and fun are the ultimate prize.

 

So, to all you guys at the Wargaming hub,

If I met you, I’d buy you a drink down the pub.

For you have given a digital world,

Where dreams of adventure are daily unfurled.

Poetry, or at least some rhymes,

seem to be partly your pasttimes

I don't know if you've seen the 'Mess'

Of Officers I must confess.

 

Coz you'd appear to be at ease,

with English words, combined to please,

so have a look, if you've the time,

we welcome all that pen sublime.

You know that game, that World of Tanks,

I'd like some questions answered, thanks,

like how can French tanks, all wheels and power,

shred my armour at 60 K per hour?

 

And why do people get so abusive,

when wins for them seem so elusive,

almost as if they're unaware,

USE THE MAP, he's OVER THERE!!

 

And while we're on, all subjects mappy,

I tell you what would make me happy,

Is if you all stopped lemming training,

me holding 1 flank's really draining.

 

And one last thing, that burns inside,

are all you folk who suicide,

you know your names, you spineless clan,

fight on, grow up, become a man.

You are correct, in your words here,

we spend too much time, that is clear.

But if we were to focus less,

I'd miss the banter, I confess.

 

And if you were to move away,

and spend less time in pointless play,

would you much more happy be,

Or would you return, again, like me?
