Cya Lokeen. You’re a righteous dude.

I’m sticking around to watch this place burn to the ground.

Being a player that prefers lights/meds it can be pretty depressing watching all the nerfs getting handed out.

Sad to see you go Lokeen. Although we weren’t friends in game, it still feels like I’m losing a friend because of all your input here and on the boom.   Thanks for all your contributions and for being classy. You will be missed by more blitz tankers than you know. Good luck 07.

o7, Lokeen. I don’t know you personally, but I’ve always appreciated your posts and everything else you’ve brought to the community (and occasionally when you’ve been on green!). You’ve always been a class act, and I wish you nothing but the best.

My Fellow Tankers......


 

Well the time has come for me to officially say good-bye.  WOT Blitz has run it's course for me.


 

After countless hours creating editing and producing music and videos, 100 podcast episodes, Club Wargaming, numerous contests/events and additional countless hours helping others, I just don't find any enjoyment in playing anymore.  To be honest I probably would have quit long ago if it wasn't for the priceless friendships I've made through this game.  I'd like to name all of the people who have made a difference in my life during my Blitz journey over the past 3 years but the list is to long and I'll undoubtedly forget to mention someone so I won't, and really I don't need to, you know who you are.


 

Some of you will wonder why I'm quitting after putting 3 years and over $3,000 CAD into this game so I'll give you the 3 MAIN reasons.


 

1. Everything has a lifespan - After 3 years I've done everything I wanted and accomplished all my goals in Blitz.  As I said above, I've been here for quite some time due 90% to the relationships I've formed through Blitz.


 

2. SPARE PARTS - Duck you WG, taking all my equipment away and replacing it with your spare parts system basically removed any desire I had to acquire new tanks.  Why would I?  To wait 3 months before they're fully equipped, no thanks.

And to those of you that say (including WG) "Oh you can just run tanks with no equipment"  Yeah? After running them with equipment for the past 2 years it's not and will never be the same, nor acceptable.  That change really hurt.


 

3. Wargaming's changes in staff and staff focus - In CWG we used to get gold to give away to players during contests/events. Let me restate that....NOT FOR OURSELVES BUT TO GIVE AWAY TO OTHER PLAYERS.  CC_Sly was an absolute BOSS when it came to support and communication in CWG.  In the past year Wargaming has removed the NA dedicated staff and the new mindset of the company is basically "You get nothing from us, you got to much in the past, you don't like it, to ducking bad."  They just don't care anymore.


 

I'm going to stay on Discord on both Thunderstorm Clan and The Bear's Den (my personal) servers so if any of you want to contact me you can do it there.


 

Now the other part of the news.....I'm still tanking! :)


 

Blitz was never about being mobile for me and historically I was always a console gamer so now I'm on WOT console on PS4!  It's so much better than Blitz IMO!  So if any of you play on PS4 feel free to add me....Lokeen75 is my IGN.


 

I'm sad to officially say good-bye but I also have no regrets.  I'm am thankful for the hours of fun this game has provided me and I could never put into words how lucky I am to have the truly amazing friends I've met through playing.


 

So maybe I'll see some of you on console, maybe we'll chat on discord or text but regardless......


 

o7 & Stay Classy!

Take it easy man. Tried ps4 and like Blartch, the controls don’t agree with me and I’m a pretty good console player. Old dog, new tricks, struggle is real.

I saved a pic of you giving little me a "Well done" after we tooned a battle

player well, it's a great feeling. ........

Reminiscing about the past today, I came across my absolute favorite video out of all the ones I've produced over the years (1:30 long).  Not our most strategic of attacks, but memorable nonetheless.  I find it an appropriate sendoff for the man, the legend...

I'm with you, Lo. The game is now something to fill time while I am waiting somewhere or on the crapper. I feel no need to play it anymore. My boys still love it, and that fine for them; their vision of Blitz is very simplistic. 

 

It's lost all of its charm. So I've gone over  (like you) to a bigger version of it, but the PC version. I'm having a blast. It's definitely bigger and better. We'll see each other on Facebook. 

 

Take care.

Hope life treats you well outside blitz. And do not be surprised if and when wot goes downhill like blitz, as they are made by the same company. I have no intention of jumping platforms as I don’t want to regrind anything. o7, Lokeen.

You will be missed and it was an honor to be on your podcast and to work with you in CWG. It is truly a shame to what this game has become with my reasons for myself staying on becoming fewer and fewer. Thank you so much for all which you have done for this community and best of luck with whatever you choose to do next!
