Hihi! Caller Wanted is a new Gold league team coming fresh out of the qualifiers. Most of us are new to Gold league and even to the wglna format. With that being said I'm sure many people still have no clue who exactly we are. Warning: this is probably really long but hopefully entertaining.
Hi, my name is Daniel "Bluemini" Padron, and I'm the captain of Caller Wanted. I'll try and start out towards the beginning.
I started playing wot about 4 days after it went live and I have played it on and off since. As for clans, I've been in a lot (much more then it shows in my wotlabs history) but some of the major ones included CAN1A (where i first learned what stats were), D-O-S (the first clan that I loved and stayed in for a long time, 333 days to be exact), LOLI, SHOJO and MAHOU (animu clans cuz I'm a weab) and now BULBA (thx mereel <3.
Why and How I formed the team
I decided to make a WGLNA team about two or three months before the qualifier after realizing that I would have much more free time this year due to starting my first year at the University of Florida (Go Gators!). I wasn't very familar with calling in the WGLNA format but I had been calling other tournaments for nearly a year by then and felt confident that I would be able to adapt (still improving after a few weeks in gold). I found most of the members by asking people that I had played with before in previous clans and asking around on the forums. Everyone on the final team ended up being someone I had played with before or met in BULBA recently, but having played with most of them before made it a lot easier to feel out everyones preferred play style.
My favorite tank is either the 1390 or E-100 (though I've been playing the Maus on my sheriff account and its pretty ******* fun). My favorite food is arroz con salchichas (yellow rice with vienna sausages). I think you already know what my favorite color is :^). I also really like anime (katanagatari is really good). I also ******* love my dog spikey (too bad I couldn't bring him to college with me .
Right now our main focus as a team is to have fun and get to the live finals by yoloing our way through waffle E-100s.
How/when I joined: I joined at pretty much the beginning of the team when Blue posted in MAHOU chat that he was “looking for teals” to join the team, and I thought “hey I’m a teal, I’ll join” so that is how that happened.
I had a history of doing tournaments and other competitive things with blue from when we were in D-O-S so we already knew each other pretty well before we formed the team.
Favourite tanks: Leopard 1, 215b, pretty much any RU med.
Experience: Well I did silver league last season for about 3 weeks before my team fell apart so I don’t have a ton of experience in this format, but I still had more than half the team so it wasn’t too big of an issue.
What I like about CW: The best part of Caller Wanted in my opinion is the fact that we are here to have a lot of fun. The comms while we’re playing are super chill and nobody ever really tilts very hard.
____Hi, I am Dealth_ a player on a dank WGLNA team called Caller Wanted we have the derpiest logo. I don’t remember why I started playing world of tanks, I think I was just searching stuff for some history research on WW2 and came across WoT. My favorite tank is the Object 907, I have 3 marked one and recently 100% marked it, I think that it is much better than the t22sr. Also I don’t have a comet even though some people consider it the best tank in the game, tier 7 uk med, because personally I don’t like low tiers because its clubbing then again so is tier 10 and don’t find it to be very good/10. My favorite shape are circles, because they never end. Earlier this year is when I would say I started to learn how to play tanks well, after I got my new computer/ first desktop I no longer needed to use my trackpad 15fps minimum graphics laptop, My first clan I was in was called _DH_ (death Heads) <--- shoutout to these guys, I was a Deputy Commander idk why, I met someone named your_Master, he’s pretty cool/10 we were 45%ers together, then like 6months later when we were good at the game he got me to join BULBA #1 social clan, shoutout to gabe um and bulba we are pretty dead/10, I have 3 cats. My eggs are cold now, so I’ll go eat them, bye.
I’m MagentaPanda of CallerWanted, and this is a general overview of well, me!
I started taking this game seriously very early, at around 500 battles. I have since rushed up the tiers, and 5000 games into playing I have achieved a very high level of play. I recently participated in the Pro Bowl, playing every game for the winning team Anime and Chill. I also played as a starter for Mahous clan league team, ending our surprising run with a disappointing 5-4 loss to SIMP in the second to last series played in the playoffs. During the middle of the clan league run, I was asked by my friend FixerReloaded whether I would like to be Caller Wanteds blue reroll one of their players : ^ )
I generally prefer to play mediums and certain heavies (215b and e5), which you can frequently see me in on the stream. I have less experience in this class however, so I frequently bounce back and forth. When playing I will try and help my caller, calling focus and recommending rotations, but I rarely if ever will make a strategy myself.
In competitive play, while I don’t enjoy losing by any means, I still try and treat this game as a game. Even when we lose in gold, a great part of Caller Wanted is that we don’t get that angry, we just talk a little bit about it and then crack some jokes and keep rolling. At the end of the day this game is all about having fun, and I think that gets forgotten too much.
Clan wise I started off in a RDDT subclan, but left relatively quickly and went to Kimbo, from there moving up to Limbo and then onto Mahou, which I left for Awful due to a lack of tier tens (A lonely 62a doesn’t get you picked a lot, which was frustrating) but I rejoined when I got more meta tanks, quickly bonding with the officer core, and pushing my play to higher levels as I got semi mentored from two 3700+ players who were in the clan. Overall, it’s been fun, and not even too much of a roller coaster.
In gold I mostly just hope to have fun. That can be elusive, and is made up of a lot of things, but it’s really my only goal. I hope we do well, and I hope to see all of you on the battlefield!

Yo my fellow tankers, my name is Manuel “Fixer” Niño. I play this game a lot, maybe too much if you ask me. But in the end it doesn’t matter because this game is really fun. I also enjoy reading stories to my teammates over ts as we do team bonding exercises so we can become one with each other. I first started playing this game when I was 13 or something after a friend told me to install it since my dad built me a decent gaming computer at the time.
I joined this team because one day after I came home from school, Blue asked me out of nowhere if I wanted to join a potential bronze league team. I said why not and then we went around looking for like minded individuals who like playing this game for too long in one sitting, which many people think is too much. Then we went into the gold league qualifiers with two strats and with no expectations. As you can see, that worked out really well for us. Well see you readers on the battlefield and check out the WGLNA twitch stream every tuesday and thursday (as long as there are games scheduled).
What are your favorite tanks?
My favorite tanks are the M48 Patton, T110E5, FV215B, and the 50B. I could play those tanks all day if I could.
What clans have you been part of?
I have been part of several clans mainly because I go where I think the fun is which is usually where all my friends in the game are. It makes so sense to me to be in a clan and be unhappy with the people that make up your clan. So following that thought process, I went to clans that were really fun but had short lives and then moved on to the next while offering my tanking abilities to the clan for clan wars and strongholds. This ended up with me being in PLSGO, D-O-S, MAHOU, SU, and as of now BULBA the number 1 social clan.
Hi! Im lemmingrush (:
I started out when I started looking for a game to play with a friend of mine, and he really liked airplane warfare so I thought itd be cool to play a tank game with him. I googled “ Free online tank game” and naturally WoT was basically the first on the list. So I got him to download the game and for the first couple months I we would play the game together, Id be the mouse, he would be the keyboard.. it was a blast. Eventually I decided I wanted to actually grind down tank lines that I wanted to play. So I downloaded the game on my fathers computer and made my own account. Ive been hooked ever since.
For me, getting “good” at this game happened really quickly. I have adhd and grinding tanks repeatedly and not having fun isn’t my thing. I googled “how to get more EXP” and quickly found some of Lerts guides and the WoT forums, and ever since then ive been focusing on getting better at the game which has also increased the amount of fun I have. After I ground out basically every tank I ever wanted ive started focusing on getting really good games. I love the carries where you can feel your heart pounding at the end of the match.
Clans happened, tournies happened and eventually I met bluemini. I let him know I was interested in joining a silver league team, and a couple months later he messaged me asking me if I wanted a place in his. Naturally I was excited. We started out with the plans of trying to finish first place in silver league, so we went into gold league quals with that in mind. Quals were meant to be used as an opportunity to face teams better than us to get practice in.. but to our surprise we ended up placing 2nd (Im pretty sure it was 2nd..) in gold league quals so here we are in gold league.
Whats my favorite tank?
Depends on my mood, but my favorite tanks are the T-34-3, Object 140, T-62a, Leopard 1, T-54 and the Cromwell Bae
Anything that sees -2+1 MM (Pref 8, Tier 9, and tier 10)
My name is Mike “Aggressor” Mercuri, I like long walks on the beach, reading stories near the camp fire while playing my acoustic guitar. My cats name is 18 because that’s how long I have been following the JB fandom (since day 1). I joined this team because they are number one, and since I’m number one I needed to have a team that was also number one. They beat Nobel once. When I was sleeping Martha Stuart told me in a dream to JOIN CALLER WANTED. Later that day on the opera show she told me to JOIN CALLER WANTED, I JUST HAD TO JOIN. I started playing tanks because every other game wasn’t hard enough, there wasn’t enough RNG in the game. I love RNG, it really shows how good players are. Rip primetime
Words to live by
Hi, I'm Perma_blue. I started playing this game about 3 years ago, and I was pretty terrible for the majority or those first 2 years. A close friend of mine (www.worldoftanks.com/community/accounts/1000785449-goldigen) brought me into this game and I ended joining a few mediocre clans with him, and around the time he left the game I started joining somewhat more competetive clans such as PINGU, LOLI club of fellow unicums (where I met most of Caller Wanted) and my current furry clan OTTER. I joined Caller Wanted because I knew most of the team and I thought it could be fun. I didn't think we'd make it to gold, but we did and that was nice. My current favorite tanks are the Object 416, KV5, WZ-120, m48 Patton and E-100. Lastly, I'd like to give a shout out to the 0.3% of you who picked me on www.fantasywgl.com
Denial and FBC removed from roster
Hopefully you'll watch us as we improve and try to climb our way towards the top at http://www.twitch.tv/wglna and follow us on twitter at https://twitter.com/CallerWanted (will try and start putting lineups, or at least reduce it to 8 for the night)
Feel free to ask any questions you may have. I'll do my best to answer then or yell at someone to come answer it for me1
Happy Holidays and Good Tanking
