Thanks guys for the suggestions on my sound issue I am sure it is my IPad but hard boot hasn't helped and I gues I can live without sound when the game boots up. AT least I get sound in game.  Hi new guys and forgive me but I am going to rant a little. Hope none of you are in the Insurance industry. but I am fit to be tied basement is still not done and the insurance rep  is arguing with the contractor about cause and wont pay what it is taking to get the job fixed.  Insurans is looking more and more like a scam they get your money but then don't want to pay out when there is a claim.  I could just curse or go postal but that wouldn't get the jog done.  It's been a month and 1/2 since our basment flooded and I still do not have things back in order. Now I have family comming this week and no place to put them.  It never rains but it pours.

Enjoy Tanking and I will hope to see you when I get a chance to get on.  [iii]:bush:

 

You may want to uninstall and reinstall WOTB on your device.  Regarding insurance, floods are usually not covered by homeowners insurance in the U.S.  If the water touched the ground before entering your house, homeowners will not cover it.  Flood insurance is a special policy and most homeowners outside of flood zones don't have it and only find out they need it after its too late.  My guess is there is an argument over the source of the water from the flooding.  I used work for a construction company that specialized in insurance restoration work...  Good luck.  By the way, if you mention to the adjusted from the insurance company that you are considering engaging a "public adjuster" it may motivate them to settle.  Insurers do not like public adjusters.

Hi all, just another old guy introducing himself. Mid 40s, software engineer so I spend a lot of time online. I've been playing on and off for about a year and only recently began to rehabilitate myself from potato status :)

 

I think I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of times I've platooned, so I'm brand new to that aspect of the game. I travel a lot so the podcast has been a great resource/way to pass the time on a plane. Anyhow, I've been lurking your thread for a while now so I just thought I'd say hello, and thanks for all the great content you guys contribute. Hope to see some of you in game.

 

Welcome! I'm glad the podcast has been a help.  Thanks for stopping in - please add me and Lokeen in-game and we'll platoon up some time. Never be shy to send me a platoon invite. Lots of people assume I'm always tooned - and I am a lot - but I do end up with 4-10 game runs unable to find a platoon mate and I'll happily run with anyone. I might not be able to reply immediately ( I get a lot of chat messages) but hit me for a platoon any time!

Yea we got past that part and determined what was covered but they are fighting over the fact that the ajuster thinks the contracter wants to much to do the repair so it is taking longer that it should to get the work done.  FRUSTRATING!!!!!!

Had an epic tier IX game....you know the one....no little blue pill required.  Received a friend request from non potato and went on to platoon with new friend...10-1 win.  Chat afterwards, 19th hole for tanks....the kid is 11.  I have underwear older than him, my grandkids are almost his age.  I had to let him know about Internet safety and that we could not chat anymore without his parent's permission.  Happy to platoon with the little terminator anytime as he carries my old "almost ready for depends" behind and he almost always out scores me.  What is the appropriate cut off age for Internet chat?

Savvy - I have a 7 year old & an 11 year old that are both WOTB Tankers and they both use Teamspeak and in-game chat.  Do I worry at times, absolutely..."but the times they is a changin".  These kids are raised on bits & bytes and most are pretty savvy if their parents take the responsibility & explain what is right & wrong.  My kids are not allowed to have 'friends' who use profanity, flame people during games, or ask personal questions - they will write their names down for me and I address it & they will be blocked.  Many of the best players on WOTB are going to be really young so have fun with it, mentor them on positive behavior, and show them what appropriate gaming is thru your actions.  If they are shown that cursing, flaming, and raging are the 'norm' that's what they will demonstrate - be a force for good and enjoy the energy the kids bring to the game.  AC

Savvybilder Wow you had me for a minit you mentioned old underwear and then 'Depends' My first thought was surly not that long for Depends Of cours my old brain is slow to pick it up but I finaly got it.  Some of us are six times older than your new freind but the only way they learn to do right is if someone showes them.

Happy tanking!

Hey Loony sorry I missed you last night I saw that you messaged me in but I had jumped on for a quick game and then had to jump off.  I'm still trying to get my basement back up and now I have my daughter and her 5 here for a couple of weeks so game time is catch as catch can for me.

Um, where on the website?  Can't find it.  Could it be because I am a "guest" and not probationary or full member yet? (I'd really like to get voted in as soon as I can :) hint, hint)
