I considered the bait, but I did not find anyone here a master baiter so I resisted.

Wow, the OP is really over-thinking this, and ironically the answer is right in this thread: climbing chalk. I use a climber's chalk bag attached to my gaming harness. Obviously, once I'm strapped in for a hard session, I can't be fumbling around for a dish of fennel dust. The chalk bag works perfectly. A couple of dips during a battle is plenty to counteract my copious natural oils and bodily essences.

LOL I am not asking you plebes who are playing on your iPhone 5s with a *SCREEN PROTECTOR*  on it.  OMG.  No wonder the teams have been such trash lately.

 

I play on a dedicated iPad Air 2 that ONLY plays WOT Blitz and nothing else.  A screen protector cannot improve your gaming it can only come between you and the surface.  That's like dipping your tongue in wax coating right before you eat a steak dinner.  When I game, there is nothing between me and WOT Blitz.

 

Maybe your fingers don't stick because you aren't invested in WINNING.  I don't know about you, but I get a little sweaty when I'm earning my medals.  Why do rock climbers use talc?  Why do boxers tape their gloves?

 

Why don't YOU dust?

 

Because Boxers and Climbers are professional. So calm down there FaZe boy. Some of us play for fun, wait you've never herd of fun? Well better find out before you go yelling at us who don't go that extra step to be extra strange.

:popcorn:*most entertainment I've gotten from these boards in quite some time.. 

 

Getting back on a serious note..  OP, have you tried graphite powder??  It will give you black thumb but it just may cure your issues.

Well I see this is by far the best thread ever, troll or not. My +1 is hot to the touch. Being a Triarii and all, we have sponsored access to "Gold Bond" powders, AKA, Greased Lightening! It's kind of like the baseball pitchers pine tar....but not. The workers here at the home keep us doused in the stuff, sometimes it's so bad I have to shake the excess off my iPad just to see the screen. I'll even lean over from my "Jerry Chair" and dump some on Fredlf's device but then he just gets all wound up and pounds the nurse call button....

I have taken to using Anti-Monkey Butt Powder.  Not for gaming though.

 

It's real.  Look it up.

Everyone knows that putting your iPad under running water is the best way to clean it, right? :)

I gave up on powders, they created such a mess. My wife was always giving me a hard time about dust getting in the humidifier, so her manicurist, Madge, suggested I try this stuff called "Palmolive". Really easy to use, I just douse the screen with it. And it softens your hands too!

The problem will solve itself with time.

I just earned a gold mastery in between cutting up firewood with my hands caked in bar oil and sawdust, with two bars of 3G on my OtterBox iPhone 4s. Before the game, I had to flake off a bit of dried blood from the chickens I slaughtered yesterday. Quit being such a female dog of the toy breeds.

These 2 sentences still remain the greatest 2 I've ever read on this forum.


"When the going gets tough and the stomach acids flow, 
The cold wind of conformity is nipping at your nose.
When some trendy new atrocity has brought you to your knees
Come with us we'll sail the Seas of Cheese."

This is the one time I'm willing to forgive it.

 

And that's only because this thread is a darned gold mine of crazy.

Whatever, since people seem content with the plain oleophobic coating and dragging their meaty, calloused workman's thumbs around like proto-lizards sliding up out of the primordial ooze onto dry land, it's just more for me.  I'm happy to float on fiber and run circles around you filthy casuals.

 

Eat my dust, snail thumbs.
