Ask yourself is it time in the game or the number of battles which makes you a veteran ?

Neither. You become a veteran when you successfully learn how to play the game, your tanks, and the maps with ease, doing your job best and excelling at your role. Your a veteran when you can lead a shot from 500m away and hit the target. Your a veteran when you know your favorite tech tree inside and out. Your a veteran when you become a deciding factor in this World of Tanks.

A true Veteran is someone who knows how to play this game and excel above all odds.

I wasn't saying you couldn't ask.

That was my answer - when you don't need to ask.

When you know how every Tank works (Its Weaknesses, Strengths and functions), regardless if it is "bad" or not.

Also, I consider MrSuicide to still be a noob due to the lack of French Tanks he has....And other specific stuff.

not really. i can literally go and draw the tech trees for every single nation, short of the new french tanks. like the fochs and the arty. i know every single weakspot nearly on every tank, some i have never the chance to fight, so thus, i don't know their weakspots. an elite is someone who can take a tank, and use it skillfully. a vet is someone who has surpassed 5k games, and can use tanks skillfully.

When people stop responding to your posts in the forums with "lol your opinion doesn't matter,
not enough battles".

I have a long way to go.

when someone that you consider a veteran considers you a veteran, then you are a veteran
