Greetings,

 

Just wondering how many senior citizens there are in the game?

I'm 64 years old.  Really struggling with accomplishing much in the game.  WN8 is bad.  Win rate is bad.  But, I play because I enjoy the game.

Hi blacklight. I'm in my 50s but not far of my 7th decade. I dont think your win rate has anything to to do with your age.

I'm 63. While I'm sure I'll never be as good a player as my son (who I introduced to the game) I don't think I do too badly.

Funny thing about getting older is that you have more time and less.

Time was I spent 5 days a week working so get up prepare for work, then later come home prepare for bed.

If lucky you had a few hours free time.

Weekends doing all the jobs you couldn't do because you were working.

 

Now I am retired I have as much spare time as I want, I have at times gamed 12 hours a day 7 days a week.

That's what MMORPGs can do to you.

Now its more like play 20-30 games of WOT spread over the whole day and do plenty of other things inbetween.

 

If you enjoy something do it if you enjoy it a lot do it even more.

Wasted a lot of time working to pay bills and to be able to afford to travel the world.

Now I really do not have to do anything unless I want to so I have more free time on a day by day basis but realistically fewer days ;)

I game while I can.

I find your response offensive (no disrespect to you of course.....).  Typical for games though.  There are always a few that have their mouth in 4 wheel drive and their brain in neutral.

Noted.  I'm currently working on resolving this issue.

Why do you feel able and indeed qualified, to tell people how to enjoy themselves and how to spend their time?  

 

Not quite 60. Fortunate enough to live at a time where, for most, age is unimportant.

Not quite 60 yet... but in mid-50s, it's approaching rather faster than I'd like.

I introduced my daughter to the game and she's now surpassed my, winrate, and WN8 on approx 500 fewer games than me (though I like to think that's down to me advising and platooning with her during her first thousand or so games Haha!)

In my mid 50s and enjoying this game in my free time. Only downside is all the rubbish people write in chat and on here. Crikey, life is too short. If the game bothers you that much or stresses you out to the point where you have to wish various diseases on people, then don't play.

 

Outside of that, love it!!

My son and granson asked me to play this game with them some years ago. Playing with them was enjoyable. Now, at 78 years age, I have not found so much time to play. Haven't played since december, but maybe when I get old, and don't have so much other things to do, I start again.

I'm coming up for 64, enjoy the game....mostly. I have a terrible habit for being too impatient, breaking cover and getting sent back to garage early on.

And as I've said before - I have the reflexes of Corporal Jones in Dad's Army - always a second or two late in thought and deed.
