Hey Tankers,

A new forum era is dawning, and it starts with my introduction as your new Community Coordinator.  Over the rest of the week and moving forward I will be hanging out here with you guys and performing a remodel so we can make this place the best it can be.  As of now I am personally accepting all suggestions and feedback related to the improvement of the forums (PM away!) - I'm looking forward to working with you guys!

In this thread, let's stick to my least favorite topic - myself.  Feel free to ask me any questions, game related or otherwise, and I will respond as best I am able.  Here's some general Q&A to kick off:

What's your World of Tanks background?

I have been an avid gamer for decades and military vehicle games have always been a favorite genre.  I was a beta tester for WoT, WoWP, and WoWS before joining Wargaming a few years ago.  I am a fairly casual WoT player, but I have played my share of Strongholds and am constantly working to improve my skills.

What is your history with Wargaming?
I have been at Wargaming for about 2 years.  I started out mostly handling Rules Violations in CS and transferred to Community a few months ago.  I have been working on World of Tanks: Blitz and now I'm making the jump to PC.

Why is your name so weird?

"Cabbage Mechanic" is an old Royal Navy term for a bad cook.   I too am a bad cook.  

Why is your WN8 such garbage?
Because I need to git gud

 

What have you done with dance210?
Dance is still awesome and still here at WGA

Do you play arty?
No.

What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Peach.

What's your favorite tank line?
British or American mediums.

What did you do before Wargaming?

I was previously a Special Ed. Teacher, an in-home tutor, a snow shoveler, a stable boy, a library assistant, a mechanic shop assistant, a truck unloader, an auto parts delivery driver, and a bouncer.  Not necessarily at the same time or in that order.

What other games do you play?
Currently:  PUBG, iRacing, Injustice 2, DOOM

How many roads must a man walk down?

42.

 

How is GIF pronounced?

Soft G.  MeatheadMilitia and I argue this topic on a near daily basis.  He and most of the rest of the office are Hard G supporting scoundrels.  Obviously, I was thus brought in to try and improve the culture.

What's the coolest thing you've ever done?

I was a Dog Handler at the 2012 Iditarod.

Waffles or Pancakes?  Cake or Pie?
Waffles, Pie.  Cheesecake is a pie which is the deciding factor.

How big is your Steam Library?
Way, way too big. :confused:

Good luck! May I recommend more interaction with the community rather than less. We were beginning to wonder if anyone was left at the NA offices. Anyway, welcome. 

And upvoted for not playing arty. :)

If you had to land somewhere near-suicidal in PUBG: Barracks (the horseshoe pit), Military Base, or Firing Range?

Bring back negative reps. Isn't the supposed experimentation over?

 

Also, M60A1 and PLEASE get the WGNA office to send feedback and suggestions from this server to Minsk.

Welcome.

 

Don't take any of it personally.

 

If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one there to hear it, does the forest actually exist?

Don't have much to say or ask other than your avatar. It's kinda creepy. Hope you're not one of those furries or whatever they are called.

 

EDIT: Also read my signature and work to get rid of that nonsense.

Out of those three, Firing Range.  In general my fave hotspots are School or Pochinki

I will inquire on the rep situation.

I want the M60 as much as anyone, feedback from this server is constantly sent to Minsk.

Nice... I have one lone suggestion: Bring back killswitch95, we need his quality banter...

 

 

But welcome CabbageMechanic, to the NA Forums, you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and toxicity... And the sad part is I'm not even making this up...

Sorry but that implies WoT PC is actually good now with no challenging obstacles left. However most would agree that that isn't the case.
