So there's the 30 second countdown to battle, maybe you do other 'things' during this time but I just stare at screen waiting patiently.

So I thought, probably during the countdown, how much time have I wasted and surprisingly it totals 15 days and 22 hours.  

Met up with a player last night who had played 167k battles, now that is a lot.

Now he has 'wasted' some 58 days!

How much time have you wasted?

Mods a bit of fun, move or delete at your discretion. ;)

 

Edit just noticed my sig has gone walkabout, that finest creation by Jogga. Must have a rummage around for it.

I always use that time useful, and tell my teammates what they should do in the match.

I usually alt-tab and read and react to a FB or reddit post.

Oh my, you are so old that you still use FB? :trollface:

 

Personally I just switch to my turn based game I have going on my other computer and do a few movements of my troops there.

I scan the imagefap website. That kills 10 seconds off the waiting time.

 

What what

I search the forums, or look at my beautiful tanks. :)

But most of the time, i alt+tab and search and post on forums.

Well, if you give it a deeper thought, 30 seconds waiting in queue for battle PLUS the 8 minutes you spend in battle are both a waste of time in reality.

8 frigging minutes? Where do you hide? What's your secret? :amazed:

How much time have I wasted at 30 seconds per game ?

Probably not as much as the amount of time I waste at work reading this forum ! (and I get paid for that as well !)

plus the 5 seconds waiting for the timer to start

 

i alt tab, get distracted and then join a battle half way through a minute in.

I don't see it as wasted time, but just as part of playing the game.
