Lots of us just stopped reading the forum as it descended into insults and name calling years ago.  Add to that the changes that "leveled" the game, such as gold rounds galore, and many of us slowly dropped playing many games (I now only play 1-3 games a day usually instead of the 20-30 games I played years ago).

 

I bitched about gold rounds at the time, but finally gave it up.  Use a few now and then, but mostly die from them in any tier (smile).  Nothing like being spanked by gold rounds from a tank several tiers above you, or machine-gunned to death by gold rounds in a low level tier.  See, still annoyed (lol).

 

Only play now for fun, keep in mind that one cannot carry a team or make up for stupid, quit if frustrated and play something more "fun".

 

It was not better back then, lots of improvements have improved the game (graphics for one), but am still tried of the bots/hiding players/foolish game play/etc. 

 

But I still continue to play.

Good for you, Dude. ...:rolleyes:

I too miss some of the older maps and wish they would do something about the map rotation. Me an couple of other tankers have started to play once again and the map rotation is limited.

Been here for the past six years.  Remember when Type 59's were still available, sealclubbing was something I was a victim of, and Dragon Ridge and Komarin were fun places to go.

 

Garbad, Lert, and Nithydux roamed the forums.....I guess Lert comes around sometimes and Garbad, let's just say  mysteriously dissapeared to say the least.

 

There was General Patton, Tuco 22, and the others.

 

Well I guess the old days are gone forever, but will never miss them.

 

:sceptic:

^..Who is Nithydux..? I don't remember that person...:unsure: I do remember NyxWGA. What ever happened to them..? I never see them post anymore.

Pretty sure Gomez is still here just rebranded.

 

I don't think so. He'd find his old friends.

l really miss Gasai_Yuno and his E25 stupidity. At first l thought his style of trolling was annoying but after a while l came to like it.

 

It was a sad day when he got banned.

Where are they going..?

 

 

LERT

 

I went to Armored Warfare. Until they hired all the unemployed WoT developers. Then that game went to Chit. Now I'm on to other things

^..I'm sorry to hear that Gomez is gone. I'll miss him. And yes, I agree. Aside from a few new folks joining, for the most part, I still believe it's the same old people, here ...posting the same old stuff in this forum. I think it's because of the new strict permanent forum strike/no mercy policy. Most folks have just re-branded to "Forum accounts". At least that's what I've been told recently:

I only visit the forums when the servers are down. Too busy playing the game, involved in real life, getting old, still a lot of trolls here.

By the way, this is regarding a staffer, but does anyone out there remember Pico Mause..? I do:

 

 

What ever happened to her..?

Well, in any case, and where ever she is now, I wish her the best of luck in life, and a very successful career.

~Cheers Pico!

 

Spoiler

 

 

Career change, from gaming to healthcare. She is now a registered nurse in Florida, if I'm tracking things correctly.

Does anyone know what happened to Jewel_Thief...? I believe she was a WG admin here, a while back, but I haven't heard or seen anything from her in a loooong time:

http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/user/jewel-thief-1001828772/

 

Jewel_thief transferred to the Seattle office years ago, got promoted to a producer, and presumably left WG when we shut it down.

Oh, and what happened to pizzastorm..? ....:unsure: He doesn't seem to be here anymore, either:

 

Can't remember when he left, but he did not come over from California.

 

Sgt Grunt had to take care of his family instead of the 90-mile commute he was doing, so regretfully left years ago

Didn't that chieftain guy become the personal pilot to the president? I heard he was nominated to position of head of the FAA. A tanker becoming the head of the FAA. That will be interesting. Only in this administration!  Btw the original chieftain got run over by a London bus ages while visiting the tank museum. Just like Paul McCartney. :P

As many have, they got sick of the toxicity of this Forum and got tired of being abused by all the nasty, toxic, bitter, hate filled, warped, vicious, broken, maladjusted teenagers, so they have left.  Imagine that?  :(
