Hey guys I am new-ish just getting back into the game (I played in the beta and a little while after launch) and was kinda pointed here by Lokeen and Lephturn thru their tankboom podcast. 

 

Whats it take for an semi not so old "married" guy to get plugged in? I really would like some people to platoon with. 

 

If you wanna check my stats in game or send me a friend request my IGN in DrLuigiPhd

I'm sorry if i'm bringing up a sore subject, but I just want to say that when I first started to play this most excellent game, Thunder's videos and reviews were the first (and best) ones I came across. His videos are also how i found this forum, and this forum has helped get me out of the 40% club. Thank you Thunderthies, sorry to see you gone.

Hi there
After a small chat with CptCheez I sent my application, not sure if i'm too old 50+ or too noob but i love strategy and tactics and playing in public games is frustrating although I only have a Pershing in my garage, i believe VIII is the smallest tier to get in right?

In any case, ill wait eagerly to know more and if possible join you in the battlefield so I can suicide for the cause!

Cannot answer all you questions, but you are definitely not too old for this game (and thread).

So I am on my way to work this morning and I hear this loud sound like a arge gas burner starting and low and behole I find a hot air baloon huvering over the house at about 200 feet.  I watch that for a bit and let the grand kids who are visiting know about it so they can see. Then I head for work and wow but there are over a dozen of the things all over the area.  Casper doesn't see that offen but on occasion we get some folks who jus got to get up in the air.

It's not for me to share - but it was not because he got bored, or switched to another game, or got banned. It was not due to the game or the community. Thunder pops in to say hello once in a while, he is doing well and he knows he is missed.

Welcome!  LOL - there is no such thing as too old for this group! We also do not have any particular requirements as far as I know - you just have to be a good guy and want to have fun and learn. We're not about the stats, we're about the community.

 

Check out my podcast in my signature below. Listen to episodes 6 and 12 for details on Triarii, our history, and the application process!

Oncold - the group does not have age restrictions (we're all mature folks from 30ish to 70ish), no tank restrictions (run Tier I if that's your pleasure) - just be a positive influence on the game and community (and have lots of fun with like-minded people).  See ya on the field!

Newbie Note #?:  all new Old Guy forum members, all guest members, all interested parties please listen to Lephturns "Tank Boom" Podcast Episode #12 for a great history of Triarii and its evolution.  The info comes from the founder (the backwards one) and the discussion runs from the clan's seminal moments, to the design of the logo, to the meaning of [¡¡¡].  Must hear information to understand what the Triarii represent and how it was started.

Sorry to bother the community but not sure who to pest, I'm afraid I registered twice as I thought something went wrong, whoever administers the iClan website  may believe I'm spamming the account but nope. Just waiting I suppose now to be accepted.
