Happy Friday Tankers!

 

We are kicking off Platoon Fridays for any player who is looking for a new friend or platoon-mate to have a match or two with. Leave your in-game name and any information about yourself (e.g: play-style, what you're looking to grind, favorite types of cheese)  and make new allies! 

 



I'd also like to take this opportunity to welcome Pollothedestroyer to the team!  Pollo is a seasoned Wargamer who has recently joined the World of Tanks Community Team full time.  Feel free to drop into his introduction thread to say hello or ask him a question.  He's brushing up on his tanking and will also be accepting platoon invites from players throughout the day - pick him up for a few games and help him shake off the rust!

Happy Tanking!

Hey tankers, Chipra07 here. Feel free to hit me up to platoon from tier 6 - tier 10 to brush up on all skills. From light tanks zooming around to spot the baddies, all the way to the big hitting TD's. Basically looking to play them all.

 

Oh and cheese? But I am a simple potato tanker, so no cheese plz.

 

I will be on tanks to platoon a few hours before the CW kicks off tonight @ 8 eastern.

Something I’ve wondered:  do they give you guys tanks in your accounts or do you have to actually buy your premiums?

Hi friends! My name is sergeantmine! I can do a platoon with tiers ranging from 2 to 9. I am not available at the moment, but sometime after 5:30pm central time I would be ready to play. Cheese? Well almost any cheese works. Except for French Cheese. Thats a no no

Well I am an adamant light and medium tank player, and I don’t give a rats butt about stats. I play tier 5-8 mostly, as tier 9 and 10 are still a bit high for me imo. I don’t use T.S. or voice chat cuz reasons, but I am rather talkative and sociable and funloving. Also I’m like an amazingly good player, like super duper uper good. Like really really really really really amazingly spectacularly fantasticly good. So yeah, there you have it. Also I play an hour or two a day somewhere between 5 and 11. Peace

We do, but there are some restrictions and limitations on how and when - I had to wait awhile for my Type 59.  Our more avid tanks players get the new releases for free usually a week or so early, for some live server testing and as a teaser.  You might have caught me out and about in the T92 this week - it's a fun little tank!

I shot Meathead in his Guard early.  I don’t usually see many of you guys.  I play mostly evenings.

xrays here... I like to play artillery, and I'm looking for like-minded people to platoon with... Oh wait! We can't do that because it makes people cry, nevermind.

 

Ok, how about triple E25s with 3 Marks? Apparently that's still allowed... Anyone?

Tsavo here, general gameplay from tiers 5-9.  Biased towards the T49 derp-fest, trying to 3 mark that thing.  Happy to play pref 8s all the live long day.

 

 

 

If you have a T23E3, Panther M/10, or E25, I'll be even happier because preferential tier 7 MM is super awesome right now and I love the T23E3.  So yeah, bring that along and we'll have some fun.

 

 

Cheese?  Compté.  Delicious stuff, that.

there's a chance I might be on common test tonight, and/or tomorrow (if it's still up)

 

I can't stand the majority of the old regular maps, and common test seems to have a lot of battles on klondike, whether one has grand battles enabled or not.

 

look for me in the blue themed Chinese LT:

 

or the purpley 13 105 for the most part

 

after that, it's back out west for 2 more weeks of southern california desert working...

Ya gotta play more, it was always fun facing off against you in your lights.  Made for a mighty fine opponent, I dare say!

if/when

  1. work travel slows down 
  2. and we see some decent maps then I can see myself being more active on live server again.  if I could do grand battles constantly - especially on klondike, then I could see grinding to a tier 10 LT - but the fact that they're rare, and tier 10 LTs get the royal dry shaft in these tiny funnel maps, or brawling pits like Paris makes me just want to drive off the bridge...

 

but, #1 has been the biggest issue, which is heavily exacerbated by #2 when I am home.

How about we settle for T49 derp-toons >:3

I put the 90 on mine.  when it was a sneaky sneaky bottom tier it could get away with the RNG misses, and down time of that reload.  last time I played it, it got top tier all too often, and I found the 90 to be way more reliable.

Old Man Zhymm (OMZ) here.  Recently moved up from deep red tomato status to pale red heirloom tomato status.  Play-style: agressive to a fault.

 

Will platoon Tiers IV through X (though only one Tier X tank atm).  Prefer to play TD's and HT's, some MT's.  Don't like playing LT's or SPG's.

 

I'm retired ... so spend a lot of time in-game (it's become my latest hobby).  Look for me anytime during the day, evening, late night, et cetera.

 

Favorite cheese(s): smoked gouda, extra shrap cheddar, blue, melted processed.

 

OMZ

Sure I'll jump in on this shin-dig. Name is Bjorn1984, and I would be looking forward to platoon with some new people. My play style is most TD's and medium tanks. American mediums are the best in my book and I say "If it's not an American medium tank, then it's not a tank. I need to put the kids to bed in about an hour so sent me a PM after 9pm EST and I'll shoot you an invite. I do have TS and will share it for voice comms. I also like just about any kind of cheese, just not blue cheese or Limburger. Well I hope to see some new faces in an hour. Happy hunting.

had suggested awahile back a little tag you could tick in game that indicated you were looking for a platoon.

 

with dozens of friends on the friends list...most in battle at any time...it would be far easier to coordinate or wait a few min if you knew 1 or 2 of them were solo pubbing and looking for a toon etc.

Agreed, this would be nice. The lack of such a feature is why most clans have a looking to platoon room in their teamspeak. Would be much nicer to have a checkbox than having to PM everyone in my friends list that I may want to platoon with.
