How did I end up in this miserable position of shame and humiliation?

Yes, today I would like to tell that story

It started 10 years ago when I first looked at tanks.  Those were days of bright, shining adventures

But gradually I became aware that I was changing.  I became drawn to deeper and darker experiences, that I had to keep hidden from my colleagues

The KV 220 was not enough.  No, I had to give it a 7 skill crew, food, super vents and directive vents.

The yakusa made me do this and laughed at me when I said that I would like once again to be an ordinary person

I was made to add gold ammo and camouflage, the pointed tips of the gold ammo are very embarrassing to me, and the camouflage is skimpy

My only consolation is that I give satisfaction in most battles, and I have grown to take some comfort and pleasure from this

But playing KV-2 and KV-1 to the extent you have is fine. Kappa.

Everybody hates arty because it's frustrating getting hit by it and it ruins the battle for you when you're targeted... But arty can be fun to play sometimes. It's that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you know you've made somebody's day slightly worse :trollface:

Well done Mr D. 

An amusing and chuckle-arousing post. 

 

 

But (and isn't it a fact of life, that there always is a but) this has been raised via the report system that it is in the wrong section.

 

So, a quick analysis...

 

Is it gameplay? Well, not really.

iIs it about a specific tank, how it plays, and tips and advice? Again not really.

Is it feedback? Nope. Can't see that it is.

Is it a suggestion to WG. Again, nope.

 

So what is it? It falls into no real easily defined category. 

So short of the Forum Management creating a new section called "Drummond's Musings" or similar, I am afraid there is only one place left for it ( other than outright closure which I am very reluctant to do as it doesn't deserve that fate)

 

So please follow this thread, which I hope BD will add to, to its new home in Off-Topic.

I played this game almost 10 years and didnt touch arty ever. Not a single game.

 

I thought it's either super fun or super boring. I mean why else would people either play arty or hate playing arty, and arty in general.

 

Now I find it's nether for me. You just load into game and click enemies. Zero emotion, zero risk, zero stress. Basic arty gameplay really requires no skill, and even "outplaying" enemies is super easy - because they cant see you anyway and you have satellite view.

 

And the arty missions are even easier than I thought.

 

EDIT: I do have new found pity for people who drown in arty though. I used to hate them, now I just think they are the saddest tossers in this game.

So now we have Drummond talking about his feelings and TankkiPoju clicking. This self-isolation really needs to come to an end.

Since my two pennerth has been asked for, the thread started boderline, wavered toward being on topic then took a sharp turn toward off topic.

 

Now if the Bulldog Drummond fan club wants to steer it back then I shall convene an extraordinary meeting of the grand council of moderators and discuss the thread on it's merits.

 

And the obligatory: some posts have been removed.

This totally belongs in the gameplay section, my poor persecuted fellow.

All life is struggle, Gruff, and it shows in the result

 

May I say, however, what a pleasure it is to be here in Off-Topic.  Harvey is very pleased to be here too.

 

Wilson: [reading from an encyclopedia] "P O O K A - Pooka - from old Celtic mythology - a fairy spirit in animal form - always very large. The pooka appears here and there - now and then - to this one and that one - a benign but mischievous creature - very fond of rumpots, crackpots, and how are you, Mr. Wilson?" "How are you, Mr. Wilson?" Who in the encyclopedia wants to know?

 

What is tumbleweed? California town is being overrun by the plant ...
