Thanks for the welcome!

 

Fair enough on the weather BushiBan. I actually prefer the cold to the heat, so why I’ve chosen to live in the South is anyone’s guess. Pretty mild here all things considered.

 

Vater_Von_Tom I cranked along sub-50% for ages, enjoying the game generally but wondering why I didn’t win more, until I discovered things like some tanks being inherently better than others (hello KV-1!) and started watching Bushka videos. He’s actually how I heard about your clan, from when he had ZipZip on his podcast a few years ago.

 

Bg2b sounds like we have opposite schedules... I’m typically getting to bed around 3am, but good luck in your early morning battles!

Greetings, I will also add that you are more than welcome to add me in game for a toon or two. I will warn you that you might need your carry pants.

I hear ya about liking the cold better than the heat. I'm a 6th generation native Floridian and moved to Massachusetts 21 years ago for a change and decided to stay. Our high was 42 today and no snow so I got that going for me.

 

I got lucky and stumbled into the Campfire one night about a month or so into my tanking career and got to learn from the best. Still got a lot to learn so as ShootingSabot said you'll have to load up your carry pants. I do know to load ammo (thanks to Lights_Out!) which end of the gun to point at the reds, and not to yolo (well some of the time)

Hey there SPUDs,

 

Is this still the place to stop by as a prospective tater? Quite the thread you have going here. I’m on the hunt for a clan for myself and two sons. I’d put us squarely in the not-noobs-but-not-PURPL-worthy class of players, so I like that you requirements do not include a 60% winrate. We’ve been in RDDT2 for some time now, but things have gone pretty dormant. With it being spring break this week my son was excited to attempt a tournament, albeit with low expecations. We sadly were unable to convince even seven members to take part despite a week of notice. This is not to say we’re looking for serious tournament action 24/7, but some more activity would be nice!

 

In any event, guess I’ll pull up a chair and hang out for a bit. Throw another log on the fire... I thought it was supposed to be Spring? Ah well.

Hey Moose, welcome to the campfire. Since the boys are on spring break, you can have them read the entire thread and give you the cliff notes. I must admit that we move slow on members so getting anything done may not happen this week. We use a council form of leadership. Think Lord of the Rings - Ents.

Great call t4, I’ll have them ready all 500+ pages. Though to be honest I think my older son would actually be up for that sort of thing, takes after his dad as a huge nerd. No worries on things moving slowly. We’ve been in our current clan for several years now and want to leave for a better situation, not just for the sake of leaving. I truly appreciate that you’re about the community and the fit as opposed to MUST WIN AT ALL COSTS.

I’ve sent a few reqs in game and will send a few more. Off work today so I’ll probably be ‘tooning with the boys this afternoon.

In fact I am pretty sure you are the one who coined the term “Spud Bud”.

Also pretty sure classy would be a misnomer, after Team Brisket gets through one of their indulgence’s, Miss Manners would have a heart attack listening to the noises emanating from their direction.

It goes way back. Pretty sure I heard it from another Later Tater.

Here's to the memory of the days when you could buy tanks instead of crates, equipment cost credits, and there were no timers.
