Fantasy tonks? You mean like the WTE-100?

 

Why don't we have any fake tiny tonks?

Just a way to get people interested in watching and with those prizes I'm betting it will work.

 

Any time a Type 59 is being given away people pee themselves to get in on it.

Why do so many of these league guys seem to only have a few hundred games?

Unfortunately he can not retire cold turkey because of the how the league transitions from one season to another. He will be officially retired and off the roster a couple weeks into Season 6.

Let me see if I have this straight...

The idea here is to create a fantasy tank league, kind of like fantasy football, where you pick players, and based on their performance in actual upcoming gold league matches, your fantasy team gets scored.

 

However, because a lot of these guys are re-rolls, how the hell am I supposed to tell who is who and what their stat history is and be 100% sure I am looking at the right person?

 

I cannot look up many of them because their account does not exist anymore, or yet, or they changed their names. When I am able to connect the dots of who is who (like I assume Zoid is Zoidbergenstein), how do I know for sure I have the correct person and the correct past stats?

 

Its like we are trying to combine WoT, fantasy football, and a shell game...as I cannot compare everyone's stats...

 

So instead of me picking a quarter back, I might instead be picking the water boy...

Crazy, just crazy...or am I not understanding what is going on here?

 

Is there a secrete decoder ring out there telling us who was who for the people that re-rolled?

if you watched last season you'd have a better knowledge of each player.
