Hi there tankers! :)

 

Okay, as you can see from the title!.

It's true that sometimes we get bad teams, bad RNG, bad timing for low rolls and etc! 

But there're sometimes where we manage to break unbelievab records for ourselves and enjoy the moment. :)

Nevertheless, what makes you come and play WoT every day/week? What you like about it?

For me, I like how players manage to play with one tank in different roles! I mean, I like to watch other people gameplay, and how there's no limitations to any tank in different play styles. :)

 

What's your reason?

For all its faults, it is the only good tank videogame available out there (no Armored Core with tracked leg units does not count), and when you find your place in it, be it as a top player or a casual, it can be good and long lasting entertainment.

Anyway, props for making a positive thread, the forums can always use more of these. :)

You look pretty sure and confidant about finding one! :D

It may ends up with a fat lady living in a basement. ... xD

The way armor works in WoT as been a big draw for me. Always enjoyed that putting in effort on using armor got rewarded. I've never been drawn to high damage or big kills (albeit they're fun to have ofc). But that game where I showcased my armored tank and made the enemy feel powerless as my armor plings off shell after shell & tanks their damage towards victory? Awesome. That is why I play the game still.

 

Being hard to kill is fun. 
I have adapted. Your HEAT is irrelevant. Resistance is Futile

 

Basically when I play my armored tanks:

And it feels good!

I like playing tanks.

I  even like playing arty.

I like reading the forum, especially the threads started by someone complaining about always losing.

This screenshot annoys me because you have player names in place of the tanks they're in. :hiding:

the memes that happen, yesterday eve i picked kv5 up again after years to mark it, well i faced a obj257 spamming heat and kv5 doesnt really have great pen (apcr is tier 8 HT like AP). he tried to flank me for some reason and well it didnt end real well for him, pushed him against the wall and thanks to the oh so great physics he flipped and became easy farm

 

Spoiler

 

thing that happened today as i went to play kv5 again, plain yolo into the enemies and into the open and see rng be with me. ended up with 7790 blocked total, type59 still shot me 2 times after that screenshot

 

Spoiler

 

these memes keep me enjoying the game quite a bunch

I like tanks, and I'm very habitual. Almost an addictive personality.

 

And I'm always chasing that, 'one-in-a-thousand', games.

The one where your heart is pumping enough to bust out of your chest. The one where it's you alone against 4 or more, and you just know your team is spectating you,

and you stunningly, pull off the win. The congratulatory messages afterwards making it all worthwhile.

The one where nothing you seem to do is the wrong choice; the enemy throwing themselves at your gun. And you come away with heaps of damage and exp. The one where

you pull off a seemingly impossible win, and get a message after battle, "Lucky b***tard". 

 

Yeah, sometimes it's an ok game.

Amongst all the dirty puddles, I occasionally find clean water.

There are several things I like in WoT.

First one is surely tanking! Nothings beat the sound of shells failing yo pen you! Pling, Plink, Peng! :trollface:

There there is several troll things, like penetrating a larg caliber HE on a 268v4 back, or blindshotting a tier 8 TD with KV-2.

What's your reason? 

 

WoT means I don't have to read about fake news and fake politics

 

WoT has been a wonderful distraction for me

 

Most folk do stuff like footie and other sports but those things do my head in

 

Thankyou WoT for maintaining my sanity

What I like : the online game with the shortest time commitment. If I don't feel like playing it can lasts one battle and a few min.

If I really have to go I can commit suicide and then insult my hopeless team mates ...

 I know :( Replay feature is screwy for me atm. Have to reconfigure it each time I use it for a replay & sometimes I forget. Not to mention that I have to send it trough WoTreplays each time before I can even watch it :amazed:

But indeed normally I use the tank names ipv player names as player names are irrelevant in screenshots (mostly)

 

Edit: I tried to reconfigure the replay without showing names but it refuses; Moment I turn off player names it messes with the notifications turning off vehicle names as well & turns HP into % too...

No idea what WG did to the replay feature but ever since the Game center launcher the replay feature is a buggy mess. (more so then before...)

 

Edit 2: Finally managed to make the system accept a configuration that doesn't show player names: just had to keep HP at showing % ipv HP left/total. Changed the screenshot as well now: No Player names just tanks! It did erase all the info about the green tanks tho... except class & HP in %....
