Well, well, well.

 

WOTB is really generous.

 

50% off the XP research is really something.

 

Go research your tanks! Hurry.

 

You don't have to buy it till you can save enough.

 

Grinding for the XP for the new tanks are always a pain.

 

Now is your chance!

 

I wonder how long this will last.

 

Thanks to WOTB.

Wait! Hold position! 

 

I nearly got .... This is misleading... Certificate is required after all! Heck!

 

Oops... I forgot. I take back my thanks.

OK OK OK! 

 

So I got a few tanks after all, not only one. Sorry.

 

I took those that are a pain in the arse  grinding. Eg ATs, slow pokes, slow loading tanks etc.

 

Why I don't take those that I love?

 

Well, that would take the pleasures off upgrading my favourite tiers and tanks, won't it?

 

So I pressed the wrong buttons and took the wrong ones... Sour grapes.

 

And presto! I have ended up with those that I don't love so much... sigh!

 

And now I am looking at the tier trees with tears in my eyes.

Oh look! Wow!

 

A novel way to earn GOLD! The most precious commodity here in WOTB.

 

Tho this is already common in other apps and games, WOTB is introducing this for the first time, from what I can remember... Other than those generous 250 or so Gold rewards when this game was first introduced in 2014.

 

Well, now with this, I can turn on the video and have a piss or rest eyes and earn gold at the same time.

 

This is a good change and can help those players with little or no budget a way out.

 

Keep up this good change WOTB!

OK! This is pissing me off!

 

My pixs that I have taken so much time and effort to take and crop and load up are not appearing in the forum posts.

 

Can the WOTB kindly get a fix on this?

 

Otherwise how can I show proof of something when I post on this forum?

I just partook a survey.

 

A few points interest me.

 

Talked about the allies strategy and plans in the battlefields.

 

There was no 'suggest' columns there. Only asked about how much it will affect the battle outcome.

 

AAAA)

Here I would like the devs (developers of the game, not devils), to put in another 10 seconds of foreplay for the team to interact (not sex) in private so that the team knows where and what to do during the battle, (Do and kill in battle, Not sex again! You maniac!)

 

The 5 seconds countdown now is not enough cos we cannot talk or express something important.

 

BBBB)

Then there is the idea of total win rates teams instead of the tank tier and weightage etc. 

 

Actually this is a good idea.

 

But what will the devs do with a player like me?

 

Let me explain, I have over a hundred tanks, I think, and not all my fingers are of the same length.

 

If I roll out my T54 or SU100, the oppo will die. But my other tanks are just ebikes with cardboards pasted on them.

 

If win rates of player are used, it will not be an accurate indication cos some of the player's tanks perform better than others.

 

CCCC)

The devs think of not allowing bad win rates fellas from getting bigger higher tier tanks.

 

This idea will kill you first devs! You a bit noobs or what? Then how are you going to stay on in biz? Sigh, must I teach you everything?!

 

Not a good idea cos ppl will just walk off and play other tank games. There are so many and not hard to find. And they are an attraction cos those competitors are using WOTB's ideas and just improvising on them.

 

If the players have money to buy the big tanks, just sell to them.

 

Instead, separate them using the win rates and other methods so they don't get mixed up with the grill and drill hardcore players. Put a tag on the tank name when it is bought, earned, promotion item etc so it shows during the name show before the battle. Ahhh, we know who you are.

 

DDDD)

Talked about matchmaking and the distribution of tanks tiers and types of tanks in a battle. About players' skills and the platoons and clantoons.

 

I personally think that there is nothing fair in this world and nothing could be done about this point.

 

I just console myself that I could have been in the other team and s/he could have been in this team.

 

So at present ceteris paribus, where you end up is a matter of luck and your team mates' experiences and skills.

 

Till then, we'll see what you devs will do, cos the ball is now back in your court.

There is a promo sales of 4 tanks ytd.

 

I was so happy.

 

I pressed the "offer" and then accidentally pressed "purchase", and presto I got the " Hafen" by itself.

 

What happened to the rest of the 3 tanks?

 

And there was no prompting to ask whether to confirm the purchase or not, as in the other purchases.

 

What the heck! Devs! I am now short of a few gold to buy the whole bundle offer.

 

To rectify my problem (actually shld say the devs' problem), it's not my fault, I have to buy more gold to make up for the short fall.

 

Pls devs, you must ask to reconfirm a purchase, the players like myself sometimes accidentally press the "purchase" button cos it's so close to the right bottom corner of the screen.

 

And we are so used to scroll around the map in that portion of the screen.

 

It won't be so bad if it's at the top.

 

Best to have a reconfirm prompting.

What are those symbols beside the names?

 

How to get them?

 

Where to get them?

 

Expensive or selling?

It's been a while since this type of freak disaster happens.

 

On top more and more below. No mood to show the pix.

 

This brought my WR down by 0.04 points.

Right, it's the time of the year.

 

Exams are round the corner again.

 

It's the stressful time of the year for both the parents and the students. Of course cos they are platoon mates.

 

While the students are burning the midnight oil to get in the formulae, the parents are burning their money (assesment, extracurriculum papers, and not forgetting the tonics and brains) to give moral support to their kids. 

 

Sacrifices are made by both the parents and the kids to postpone their holidays and leisure and monetary bonuses.

 

While you are grinding blindly away as you stare at the society status tree (ya, ya it's the same old tank tier tree)

 

This is just a gentle reminder.

 

Study hard. If it can't get in your head, do it again and again till it's embedded.

 

Use a hammer if necessary. Not on your head and hands silly, how are you going to sit for your exams with such injuries?

 

The hammer should be used as hard as possible right in the centre of .... Guess where.... The centre of your IPad and tablet where the screen is! See if you still can't get the complicated formula in.

 

Of course in addition to this, you have to study smart too.

 

What's coming out and what's not likely to come out.

 

Spot the questions, speculate a little, like where you think the enemies are coming in the maps. 

 

Do the easy ones first, I always say it's the same like killing off the weaker enemy tanks first.

 

Skip the hard ones for last, but remember to put a big mark on the edge and number on the exam paper so you won't miss it when you come back for it.

 

You don't want to end up searching for the light tank running around in the hills and gullies. 

 

Last and most important of all.

 

Have a good rest on the day before your exams. You can play a few games of world of tanks blitz, I assure you.

 

Cos if you still don't undrstd what the heck the passage in the text book is all about at this moment in time, then it's like a fight against 3 heavies facing you. Skip it and pray very hard that it won't come out.

 

Last hours before the exams, don't bring along any books or such heavy stuff with lots of pages, you should only have a few slips of papers (even tissue napkins will do) with the most important notes and formulae on them, (not for you to cheat in the exam hall, crazy!).

 

It's only for last minute reference, which actually should not happen at this time cos you had one whole year.

 

Beware of "friends". OK, OK I'll refer to them as fiends. These fellas will undermine your confidence and give you wrong formulae and give creepy scenarios that will never happen but just to freak you out. At the last min outside the exam hall holding area. Beware! They do exist, those creeps!

 

Be confident and walk in with the knowledge that this battle will be won.

 

If the questions are difficult, don't panic cos most likely the person sitting next to you is having the same problem. Unless the person is a genius, which I feel the society lacks.

 

After the exams has started, don't just dive in and yolo!

 

Give yourself a good quality 5 min to look over the exam questions, not too much time either.

 

This will help you gauge the amount of time you'll spend on each questions and at the same time give your brain a background think about while you are attacking the first few easy questions.

 

Don't leave any blanks, try a few likely answers to your last few difficult questions. You'll not get any marks for no answers but you'll not get penalised for attempting with the wrong answers.

 

That's about it, I think. Good luck!

I've just spent another US$100.

 

I can't resist collecting unusual tanks.

 

That adds up to about US$250 this sep end / Oct beginning.

 

I got the Hafen, Lupus and gang, remember?

 

And pls change the purchase with a reconfirmation question, cos now I got this FV and AMX without a second recfmn from the seller, again.

 

Pls don't disappt me, devs.

 

Keep the pings under proper control and I can do the rest.

 

Now I cannot even fight close quarters with the enemies cos they just disappear or my tankie drivers are under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

 

Next on my wish list... The Dracula which I missed out 2 years ago. 

 

I was too poor then... Sigh.

It's a free tank!

 

Scavenger.

 

You just need to win 50 battles.
