Well I am still here. Just going to throw something up I found interesting on YouTube. A little peek behind the curtain of top tier competition. Curious to know what people think, was it what you expected or completely different.

Howdy Taters. As is typical, I'm stealing a couple quick minutes between work and dinner for blitz - to type a quick "hello" to the SPUD clan. I've run into one or two of you, including a kind gentleman who hangs out with those iii guys. I want to improve, and I need help.

 

I'm old enough to be married 22 years, have three kids, and a beard with some white in it. I'm not that good of a tanker. I couldn't decide what I like to play, so I played some of everything until I got to tier 9. Now I want to back off and "get gud" at lower tiers until I get my WR up. I don't have gobs of time to read/write on forums, but I def appreciate the resource (not to mention all the time & expertise other dudes throw out there for us).

 

I live in Vienna, Austria, but play on NA blitz. Ok, well outta time. So, again, hello, thanks, and I hope to see you in battle (on the green side!).

I'm not the "official greeter" for SPUD, SPUDX, or the European flavor SPUDE, but I can certainly offer a hearty Howdy right back at you. Be warned, don't take any cruise advice from the "kind gentleman" that hangs out with the iii guys.

I rushed too quickly up the tiers when I started, have a NA garage full of tanks and a mediocre WR to show for it. Although I feel I've gotten better, the teams have gotten correspondingly worse and I'm slipping slowly backward. Sigh, so it goes. But, friend me in battle, either NA or EU, and I'll toon with you. I often have a lot of playing time on my hands these days.

Stick around. It's nice to see some life in this forum again.

Love the welcome, thanks! Yeah, time...  I often spend more than I should on this crazy game. I could go for an actual campfire right about now, though - chillin' with some seasoned dudes with good stories. We've had more than our share of quarantine and isolation over here in Austria.

A guy gets stuck in quarantine once, just once and he is now marked. Nice.:)

Welcome Jean_Luc. We can’t promise to help you get better, but we can surely show you many of the things that you should not do.

I once heard, “It is wise to learn from your mistakes, wiser still to learn from the mistakes of others.” So this works for me! (Though I think I’ve already done a good job figuring out how to tank poorly...)

 

Thanks for the welcome!   Being overseas, we’ll have to see if/when battle times overlap.

Ja oida, leiwand! I’m still learning German and slowly catching Viennese colloquialisms. 
 

My username, ... well, if I wasn’t so tight I’d pay 1500 gold to change it. But it was just a random name I came up with when I first started tanking. My son, then on an iPhone 4 ( I know right) was playing in mad games, grinding for the scavenger. So I thought, “cool, let’s do this!” And made an account. I took French in high school and thought the French light line seemed cool (at the time).  
 

So there you have it. I’m a US boy, born in Iowa (don’t hold it against me), grew up all over the Midwest, now living in Vienna. I’d tell you what new gamer tag I’d choose but I’m afraid someone would steal it.

 

Oh, and 9617 damage?!?  I get like 1/10th of that ...

if you’re willing to play lower tiers (5-6-7?) and give a guy some pointers, I’m down.

1) uhh, ... no.  More along the lines of "MuederKrieger"

2) shootinsabot is a gent

3) I was going to quip about you not having [SPUD] next to your name, but hey, I'm desperate. And you're even in the same time zone! (Tier 6... used to have everything except 2 of the brits. Now only have Bromwell - and I'm not even that good in it...)

Not a SPUD but definitely a potato.

 

Brommy is a favorite. Let's do it. You can even seal club with us. We do it every Sunday @ 18:00 local.
