I'm glad to see you have a rigid bathroom schedule. I'm a little concerned you rely on WoT players to remind you though

 

Is that a joke that I'm too <40 to get?

 

It's on, old man, it's on.

Just a positive thread where you can bring attention to those that did a good deed or were generally decent.

 

 

Because I am such a nice guy I play low tiers in OP tanks in order to give a positive boost to my team

I am rarely thanked for this, but endeavour to persevere

I want to say congratulations to a friend I came across recently who achieved 90,000 games in a hummel. That's quite an achievement :)

It's very clear that this is name and shame, even if you're trying to mask it. Don't get me wrong, I don't approve of the player myself, but I'm still not gonna let that slide.

 

I'd prefer this thread remains as y'know, genuine "name and fame" stuff.

I mean, I'm really not sure where we're supposed to stand on this. I forget whether or not the past mods actually decided to lock these threads since I know a number of them have popped up over the years.

 

For now, I am going to make the decision to allow it. So long as it remains positive (I'll have to try and keep an eye on it), I think it's fine to exist. I can't speak for anyone else though and someone else might choose to lock it, or we might have a discussion with staff about what to do. But yeah, for now,


I’m pretty sure that name and fame threads have been allowed before.

Had invaluable help from deadpoolXD_1 on mountain pass. He in his Jg.Pz.E100  and I in my Kranvagn. He was the only one that helped me block and push the east flank, and he had map awareness to see when I pinged for help as the game started and the rest of the crowd went the other way. 

Also sent him a message in game, telling the same thing. I did more dmg than he did, but without his help I am quite sure I'd phuked up that flank being alone.

Then here I'd like to thank Radagast87. When i got tracked in the open and was slowly whittled down from the enemy hiding in the woods he actually placed his tank in front of me until I got my movement back despite being a one-shot himself, with only his better armor as any means of protection (and the enemy was shooting premium ammo as I had seen on my hit log)

 

 

I was so moved by this that when I was able to move again I charged right into the woods ahead of my allies to oust the remaining opponents. And maybe catch a bullet instead of them; as you can see I'm still with the stock gun on my T49, so at this point I considered that the stronger cannons of my allies were more important to keep in the game than mine, although lady luck was with me and despite my reckless charge I survived:

Congratulated an enemy T49 in the garage last week because he smacked me for 950 with HE killing all my crew and some modules and then he finished me off from stealth later on for 550 in my AMX30.

It was a very nice roll and I got smacked for playing too aggressive in a paper tank and he played well to take advantage of that.

 

Turns out he just unlocked that gun so I gave him some tips on how to play the T49 as a damage main against heavy armor, which he appreciated actually. Rather nice conversation.

 

His name is Polluto

I'll go look on the replay. Edit: My fault, his correct username is deadpoolXD_1. Thank you for pointing this out, I have edited my original post. :)

I'm kinda compiling them all on the OP, so I check the names to make sure they go in there exactly as they are. If I knew how to do the @bluename thingy, that's what I would also do.

Had a great game (we still lost but that is another thing entirely) with a feller called M1cr0M. Me in my Cent 5/1, he in his EBR105. 
Got a "gg matey" in garage afterwards. Felt good. We ended up top two in dmg, he on 4343 and I managed 3261. Sometimes you get that "hey, we actually work together" feeling in game. This was one of those times. And sometimes it is almost okay to lose. This was such a time. Enemy IS7 killed me off, he was almost full HP when we finally ran into each other... 
GG, anyway.

Not going to lie, I thought this one was a sure loss, but then our SU-130 Tadeusz1 hard carried the north and turned it around.

No idea how he got out of that in one piece, but GG.

Putting aside my natural modesty, I should like to name and fame myself

By selflessly playing at tiers in which I can make a useful contribution, I believe that I have been a positive influence

As per the report options in the game, I think it would be nice to give some players a positive report for great play or just generally being a nice bloke.  

This. I think it would be great if you could + up to 3 players and - up to 3 players per battle. Sometimes people do things which are not considered in their XP evaluation in the end. Also those things can be positive (protecting your ally, taking a shot for someone or similar) and negative (red line camping, drowning, blocking etc). Ingame reports are ok, but not sufficient. 10 per day is not enough if you play 70 battles a day. Like in every 6 battles arty will go scuba diving if they start to lose. Then you have those "OMG 33% CHANCE BY [edited]" guys who drown in the start of battle, and then we win anyway... I don't think it is enough punishment for them.
