Comrade tankers,

Darkest were the days of 1941 when we ground through the T-34 line, clanless and alone. Then we saw the light of the Forum Warriors channel, from which came offers of platoons and friendship. We remember how we became one with PBKAC and fought our campy Swamp battles in Europe. We can still vividly hear the IOC's order on Fisherman's Bay: "one-two line, begin yer push". We recall our victory with a half-baked fascist box strat on Ruinberg and our obscene defeat from "dick in facce" on Cliffs. We were there to witness the conception of hardcore PBKAC Himmelsdorf strats, where once we stacked meds on the hill only to lose to a capfast. We had our moments farming lame points with BULBA in the Americas and doing our giddy M60 count-ins to farm pubbie tears. And of course, who can forget the thunderdome, the fast-bois strongholds, and the anime club.

Nowadays the war is over and the soldiers don't know where to go. The WarGods removed all-chat and so we bid farewell to the days of smack-talking baddies. CR/D is dead and gone, forever buried deep in the ground alongside Chairinabasket. We wonder where the veterans from old PETCO are now and what new hip game they play today. We tried the PTSD-inducing Red Orchestra 2, fighting the Great Patriotic War as a conscript with only a rifle and bayonnet, but the community there was small, they didn't insult each other much, and there was neither stat padding nor metagame. We tried League of Legends, finding some of the memes and airhorn-inducing MLG plays entertaining, but it lacked the euphoric feeling of a 3-unicorn hard-carry; there was none of the "us versus them" mentality as the game just makes good players fight other good players.

We miss the days of WoT; terrible as the game is, the people playing it are second to none. We dream of fighting with you unicorns in the halls of Valhalla, forever pursuing the 99.9% winrate and surfing on the waves of the Red Sea. Thank you all for our time together. We are here to read through old posts and we would love to chat and reminisce.

Dear Comrade 8112204,

I continue to fight the silly fight and your post reminds me of many of the great (word) battles of the past - when we were gayer than a bag of glitter covered dicks, and  then as the sub-clam of the -G-lorious Guerrillas. 

My later years tanking find me pursuing the American's stolen KV-2 technology with teleportation and cloaking devices known as the T49. Be sure to check the T49 thread starting around page 22 for many visuals.

We were digging through our old screenshots and we found this historical battle on the Siegfried Line.

 

Long years ago, three great heroes were bored of stroking their egos up high in Valhalla and deigned to bring their platoon down to the mortal world to quell the arrogance of the pubbies below. We were one amongst these three, fighting alongside the unicorns Kewei and CarbonWard. Alas, as we descended, the fates sent upon us a turbulent wind and landed our tier 8s into a grim tier 10 battle. Worse yet, there stood opposing us was the dark unicorn maxL_1023, whose might was the equal to any of ours.

Our own top-tiers ineffectually encamped themselves to the west, leaving MaxL to lord it over the pubs in the city with his grotesque E4. Three scrubs did he slay as his gold shells shanked them and caused them to plummet headfirst into the dirt to lay with the potatoes. Others did he rout, sending our smaller tanks flying pell-mell off the battlefield. Only we three immortals could challenge this beast, but as we ventured forward we were ploughed by a rain of arty, leaving Carbon and Kewei lifeless as the ichor drained from them.

Our T-44 was left alone with whatever rabble was left to finish off this rampaging devil. The pubbie heavies finally came bumbling into the city, but they could not defeat MaxL, who smacked them around, fighting as if he were the god of war himself. We could only hope to bring ourselves behind him to put a shell into his heels, and we prayed that he had no more repair kits. Thereupon we arrived at speed to the scene, performing an anime tank-drift around the corner to meet our enemy. A spear of silver did we throw at the demon, but RNGesus with his ethereal hand swept our weapon away.

Before we could fire again we were blinded by a red light as our tank erupted in flames. We felt our immortality burning away as we were dragged down mercilessly to the realm of Hades. Meanwhile in the mortal world, MaxL proceeded to stomp the rest of the team and carry himself to a Kolobanov’s. “What had happened?”, wondered our comrades upon our return. Through our clairvoyance we looked back to that climax and saw that we were slain by our own IS-7. But how could that be, when the demon lord MaxL was there between us? In true pubbie fashion, the IS-7 had missed both tanks and killed us with the splash from its HE shell.

“By these potatoes we see,

Fifty damage with HE!

Oh, pubbies.

Oh, scrubbies.

Close, GG”

Yes, with the T49 WG appears to have finally stretched the light tanks all the way up to tier 9 and 10. It was OP even back when it was a Tier 5. We also see that -G- is actually alive, for all the time it was supposedly super dead, and Europe is back on the map... kind of. Is clan wars still exciting? Do people do fast-bois strongholds while watching movies?
