During 7th grade, one of my friends who loved gaming kept telling me to try wotb.  I just ignored it.  Then one day I saw one of my other friends playing a game during class.  He was in his box tenk on rockfield.  I was like " what game is that " And he said World of Tanks Blitz.  I downloaded it later that night and tried it.  It was meh and then he started teaching me things like how to buy gold ammo.  Overtime it got better and better and I spent more time and more money on this game.  I then started to watch some youtubers and learn how not to suck.  Then I got very addicted to the game.  Then one day I found the forums and now I'm on them a lot.  Blitz to me is a very fun and addicting game.  If you have some time to kill, then this is the best game to do it.

In October of 2014 I had joined the game, I had recently gotten my first technology device, an iPad. While exploring the app ecosystem I found out about world of tanks blitz! I downloaded the game, which took forever! My home had/has pretty bad wifi, with 6 people sharing that connection. As soon as the game installed I rushed through the tutorial and jumped into open battle! I had no idea what I was doing, had almost no knowledge of what tanks were around in ww2 so when I found out the tanks were modeled after historic ww2 tanks I was astounded!

As my love for the game grew, so did my goals. I soon found out about win rates, accuracy angling ect. And was yet again amazed at the depth of the game. I had to take several long breaks from the game for school, camps and more. I always came back though. This game is a stress reliver for me in which I can bound with my clan, explore the depth of the game and blow up tanks! As I look towards the future I am excited for what wargaming has to offer!

World of Tanks Blitz is my favorite game. I play because I have always liked tanks, and the game is decently-balanced. I also play because it is made by a decent company with good customer service(for my tickets). The most enjoyable part of this game(and one of the many things that keep me hooked to this game) is the great graphics. Never before have I seen such good graphics on a mobile game, and this makes for exceptionally enjoyable gameplay. I play to get the stress out of my system(although with bad teams this doesn't happen). I started playing after I saw some of my friends playing it, and now I enjoy this great product WG has made.

From starting as a noob, to finding a group of players to help me out, Blitz has been countless hours of entertainment. Without much time for consoles and always on the go blitz had all it needed to be a solid game. The mechanics of battle and strategies required to win is what got me hooked. Any gamer strives for being a leader in one area or the other. That pursuit is what kept me pushing the limits of not just my skills but the forumers and clan mates I have spent time with in my blitz career. Without some of them I wouldn't have been able to accomplish my personal goals. I don't know a single player that doesn't like to get on teamspeak or discord, joke around, and blow some pixels up. BLITZ means it's time to grab a good toon mate, play an unforgiving game of strategy, bully the weak, make unicorns cry, have fun, and hit battle again!

What blitz means to me is outstanding fun, aggravation, and many many hours of leisure. I started playing tank games about two years ago. I couldn't find one with the realism that i wanted. Then one day i seen a commercial on tv for the PC version. I searched for it on my pbone and nothing. I continuously searched for months then one day Blitz showed up. This was what i was looking for. I been hooked ever since. 

It was a learning curve for me coming from another tank game with complete different metrics. The brutal forumers made it possible for me to change my game play though. The depth of this game is incomprehensible. From game play to Youtube videos to tooning etc.

I literally love this game!!! I play it all night at work. I actually can say i get paid to play this game. One of the few who do.

I love that these are ww2 era tanks and with out Blitz  and every one associated with it well im not too sure what it would be like. I look forward  to many many more battles win or lose. 

Thanks WG for this one of a kind outstanding game!!!

My adventures started with Tanki Online with one of my mates back in 2010 and then in 2011 I started playing World of Tanks on the PC. I can't reveal my first username for reasons...... But this is my second account. Anyway fast forward a couple of years I was on the forums and I saw that Blitz beta sign ups were happening, I had a look at them but I didn't bother singing up as I was currently running only an iPhone 4. Fast forward a couple more years I wanted to expand my YouTube channel so I went out and bought an iPad Air 2 and the first game I downloaded was Blitz but luckily I still had my PixelRage account from when I downloaded it on my iPhone 4 to receive the LTP and M3 Light and 30 days of premium for free. So I started playing the game and surprisingly enough I was pretty good at it or to my standards. I went from a 44% win rate player with 9000 battles on PC to a 66% win rate player with 9000 battles. So I wanted to keep a good name for myself in Blitz which I did and started making videos about Modding and Eatser Egg hunting which made my channel very popular and got me a cool Forum tag thanks to CC_Sly :girl: 

 

In all honesty I don't know what Blitz means to me or why I play the game but I do love the player base on the forums and how friendly and toxic they can be. However my future with Blitz depends on the path this game takes

I have a love-hate relationship with blitz. It has made my day, but also ruined it. I’ve been playing since the first day of open release, and it has been my favorite game since. I had a lot of fun playing, and it has become a part of my life. I now have a youtube channel dedicated to the game, and I have recently started streaming as well. I love the game still, but sometimes stats take away the fun. I hope WG keep introducing fun game modes and the thing that I want the most is personal missions for tanks. The t55a is one of my favorite tanks in real life, and I really hope WG implement a mission to obtain the tank. Marks of excellence will also be a great encouragement to me playing to get even better. I hope the game stays strong, and as a final request, I hope you merge the PC/Mac queues with the mobile queues.

I was looking through the App Store to update some of my apps then I found this game which had a really cool app icon and when I downloaded it my original intent was that it would be a game that had fake pictures and the game wouldn't actually be that cool. Oh boy was I wrong!

 

pretty much that's how I found the game and why I was interested. It's quite hard to find a game that would suit my personality but I believe I found the game that I love! I definitely spent more than I should've have but I definitely don't regret it any bit.

       Blitz is something in my life that I never would have expected to come about a year and a half ago because it is a mobile game. I used to consider all mobile games to be petty and simply like Angry Birds or Temple Run. I could never have been so wrong. When I first downloaded the game out of boredom, I was in for a shock. I got hooked onto world of tanks blitz. I have learned so much from blitz from learning some history, how tanks work, and many other things. I also joined the coolest clan family on Blitz, Thunderstorm Division. I have had so much fun on Blitz, made so many friends, and learned so much. For this I am so grateful to Wargaming for producing such an awesome game.  I look backward and am satisfied with what wargaming has done so far from bringing more tank lines, new maps, great features, and most of all training rooms. I look forward to the future and I cannot wait until wargaming starts expanding the game with new tanks, bigger maps, more powerful features, and clan wars.

I still remember the faithful day that one of my friends told me to play this game called World of Tank Blitz. I didn't think much of it at the time, but I definitely do now. I went ahead and downloaded it on the app store. I don't really remember much about my early battles, but all I know is that I was God awful. However, this didn't discourage me. I strived to become a better player, and that's what I am today. For me, Blitz is more than "just a game." The friends (and enemies) I have made here will always be a part of me. I have had experiences in this game that can only be imagined in other places. Although there may be rough times, this game never ceases to make me laugh and have fun. There is just something about this game that compels you to keep going on. Overall, Blitz is just an enjoyable game that you can play anywhere (with an Internet connection, of course). That's why I play Blitz.

I downloaded Blitz on July 2nd, 2014. I played a couple games and I thought it was pretty cool. I didn’t know anything and was a complete noob. I decided to go up the American heavy line because I was looking at the statistics (the %s on the vehicle stats screen) and I thought it was pretty cool. When I got to about tier 5 (T1 Heavy) I started to watch YouTube videos about World of Tanks PC. I soon found out that Jingles provided entertaining videos while Quickybaby provides helpful ones. My first tier 10 was the FV4202, followed by the E5, Obj.140, and T-62A.

I inspired to be a unicum player at the time of purchasing my E5. I thought to myself one day “man, I want to be in the best clan”. So I improved my skills, platooned with good people, and eventually made it into KRIEG. Now I look upon my path and I realize that I made a good choice. The thought of being fearless on the battlefield motivated me to do what was necessary, and that helped me in school as well. I set goals for myself and achieve them within a set timeframe, man does it feel good. Thanks Blitz!

Started playing WoT (PC Version) on 2012, came to Blitz 2 months ago, won't go back, the way that they made to new players learn and improve is amazing, really something hard to do with a game so complicated like WoT. I'm making new friends, having fun with them, and really can't imagine myself stopping Playing this, is my "scape valve" after a hard day. Is so good the feeling after unlocking a tank or sharing an "Ace" with the Clan.

Blitz have an strange way to keep me playing, is easy, hard, frustating and rewarding at same time, just as I like it. The competition is exciting and make my hearth beat hard, there is no game like WoT Blitz, you have always something to do, you can play all day long and never get tired of it, is unique and fun.

I'm new on blitz, cant wait to see what is comming, the experience is diferent fron the PC version, but not less atractive, exciting and rewarding.

     Tanks have never been my thing. My love has always been with fighter aircraft (Gamer tag) and I build models. At the beginning of this year I started building model tanks for the first time. Then I just happened upon this game sometime in March of this year while searching for a different game for my Android phone. I've NEVER played any tank sim / game before...ever. I've been hooked on this ever since. Fighting with and against other ACTUAL players is WAY better than playing AI, and way more fun!

     I have actually learned a lot more about tanks in general during my time playing Blitz so far. It gets me curious and I research them outside of the game as well. Not sure if I have any specific Blitz moments I can put in the space I have left but let me tell you; When you're battling hard in a tank you've been trying to master, and the match ends, and you finally see that golden 'M', it is one of the coolest feelings. I drop my phone and throw up my arms in victory...not caring if anyone see's it or not. Just awesome!

:honoring:Hmmm, let's see... Way back in july 2014 i was browsing through the ios app store looking for new games to try out in my ipad when i came across WOT Blitz, I downloaded it and played the tutorial and to be honest i have to admit (as embarrassing as it is) that I didn't understand how the game was supposed to be played and got annoyed at the point that i just deleted the app :teethhappy:; a couple of months later i was bored again browsing through the app store and remembered about this game so I decided to give it another go and this time it was for good, i learned a lot of good tactics like hull down, sidescrape, peek-a-boom and 'CODing' slower tanks, I've been here since friendly fire was on, since there was only three nations to choose from, since there was no black goldville, no canal, no mirage, no lost temple and since desert sands actually looked like a desert and i plan on staying here for many more years to come.

 

I love Blitz and i know it has its flaws but honestly I can't think of a game that doesn't, it currently is the only video game i play and it never fails to keep me entertained, keep it up WG this game is great

So, we’re at the two-year mark for Blitz, yay. So over the two years I’ve am[edited]quite a few cool stories and experiences. For my first year, I was just like any other newbie, running around shooting things, etc. At first, it was just a new plaything, something that would come and go. But after month four or so, I began to feel more and more enveloped. I started to play anywhere from 8-10 hours a day in the game. After about 2 months of this I realize this was starting to hurt my grades, my social life, and my family. So for about a month, I didn’t really play. When I came back was when I saw that a major update was happening in PC WoT. I was away from home and I couldn’t really play. So I decided to open up blitz and started playing again. The first line I really when down the KV3 line, mostly because I was new and I wanted to try it out.

 

After that everything went into overdrive. I got on skype to team up with people, and I started to watch streams. I have to really thank ChaosAcending, he was the guy who got me into High Leagues. And then I started to apply for the higher clans, such as Defiant, and Titan. Eventually I got accepted into Defiant, and they really built my skills up to where it is now. So that’s my story of how a regular became Unicrum.

I found Blitz in November 2014. A Blitz ad popped up on another game I was playing. I was watching The Mighty Jingles before I found Blitz, so I wasn't technically a noob. I knew some basic mechanics and how to play some tanks. I kicked around at low tiers trying to find a line that best suits my style. As soon as the British line was introduced, I knew that was my line for some lame reason. My reasoning: Jingles loves the Centurion 7/1, I'm sure I will too! I got stuck on the Cromwell for the good part of 6 months after... :p. Fast forward to the present, amazing events happened in my Blitz career. I started my own clan (which I left), found the forums, joined Iron Cavalry, and finally bought the FV4202. Games that have stuck with me have come and gone, but nothing has stuck with me longer than Blitz. Yeah, gameplay has stagnated, teams are extra "special", Soviet bias, etc. But, the forum community, the drive to become a better tanker, and unlocking new vehicles is what kept Blitz going for me. May Blitz live to be a timeless classic.

This is exactly 200 words, I am not sure if it is positive enough though.

 

 

When I started playing blitz I had watched a bunch of YouTube videos from before you could buy premium ammunition for credits, consequently for five thousand battles I fired no APCR or HEAT ammunition before I found the ammo currency selector which meant that I still do not have to fire very much of it since I learned how to function without that. Since figuring out that you do not have to be stuck with 175 penetration when you start grinding the ST-1 it has definitely helped my stats, and especially my awareness of them. At the same time this cause problems, once I figured out what stats were I wanted better stats and so it, for a while, turned a stress reliever into a highly stressful activity. On the other hand I have recently managed to make myself not check my stats, this has helped a lot and I started to enjoy blitz much more by simply not caring about anything besides the current game. I actually have no idea what my current win rate is, I think it is in the low 61% area but I have not checked recently. TLDR: stat-checking is bad for fun.
