Howdy Tankers,

 

It seems like forever ago that I announced my retirement from the Blitz Forums after 3.8 came out and the Russians started attacking me for the same things I had been saying for years.  Since the truth hurt, I guess they wanted significantly less of it.  So I left for what I thought was a more Customer Friendly game - World of Tanks PC.  However, my obsession with tanks and the Wargaming titles all started when Blitz was introduced to PCs (and therefore me) and my current friends, clanmates and most of my YouTube followers remain Blitz focused.  In fact, it is they who notified me (in bulk mind you) of this news: ( https://wotblitz.com.../equipment-5-0/ ) and also with questions regarding my return to the game.  FYI - I never left Blitz completely (too many premium tanks), I just play it significantly less than I did before but I still open crates weekly and have a zillion boosters to show for it. 


The real question that I have here with 5.0 is what is the real path Wargaming is going to travel down now? 

 

To me, 5.0 is an admission that 3.8 was a mistake and that removing all of my equipment from all of my tanks and making me pay and wait to put them back was wrong.  I had around 36 Million credits when I semi-retired from Blitz, but the new Crew Skills additions had me spend about 20 Million to get those up to the highest levels.  I don't mind spending a little something of my remaining 16 Million to put equipment back on my tanks that were FULLY OUTFITTED before 3.8, but in reality I shouldn't have to pay anything for a 2nd or 3rd time.  We'll just have to see how this all shakes out with the boosters, etc.

 

I hope those of you who were with me before have been enjoying your time in Blitz. I know many of my clanmates have been putting up with Wargaming's shenanigans because the people they've come to know/friend are worth it - even if the game hasn't been.  Those folks are thrilled with the upcoming changes.  I, however, am cautiously optimistic.  :sceptic:

 

Here's to hoping!

 

:great:

 

Take care of yourselves and have some Happy Tanking!


Sincerely,

 

Blitz: _War_Child_

I didn't read the Forums before I posted this thread.  Here is an example of a clanmate that I haven't played with in forever:

Welcome back!

Good players take RNG and MM into account when they make decisions in game.  They take what the game gives them and more often then not win in the end.  Bad players on the other hand come to the forum and whine because they are unable to adjust their playstyle to deal with the hand they have been dealt.  Don't be a bad player.

Man, if 5.0 brings back a bunch of vets who hear that Spare Parts are going to be history, O happy day.

 

WG still aren't training the noobs though :rolleyes:

 

This is a noob and vet-friendly improvement to the game.

Thanks guys.  It's good to see your shining faces :)

 

 

Can't wait for 5.0 to drop.  Would kill (red tanks) to see Lokeen come back.  I miss listening to his color commentary (sorry, he's Canadian: Colour Commentary) on TankBoom with Lephturn - and listening to Lephturn try to reign him in. 

 

Good times.

PS - One of my favorites is listening to Lokeen on this video:

Famous last words.

 

It'll be good to have ya back around WarChild!  I presume you'll be doing more Blitz Streams and whatnot?  2018 is turning out to be a bit of a year of redemption for WG... Hopefully they'll keep that trend going. :)

Yea, I sure hope this isn’t just an endless cycle of: steal our equipment and make us loose credits in process, waste time and effort  on new system, take that away and make us loose on the back conversion again, rinse and repeat. Each cycle the only constant seems to be that my bum ends up sore. Oh well, I sure hope this purchasing equipment stays. :sceptic:

Thanks to a snafu with WoTPC yesterday, I streamed a little Blitz:

When did they add Naval Frontier and whatever that other map is that no one seems to know where to go?

 

LOL.

 

Good times
