It's that time of the week again, when the forum is pretty much dead. So to liven things up, here's a question.

 

What got you into WoT?

 

For me, it's while I was into Tamiya military scale model construction. Specifically while I was building/painting The Elefant "Ferdinand", obviously I went straight for that JP E100 line and love it.

 

You?

My brother in law got me into blitz. I searched for videos on line and kept coming across QB. thought wow that game looks good and downloaded Wot. Dragged my BIL with me and both stopped playing blitz.

 

My wife still abuses her brother for getting ourselves into this.

You had me snickering at the last part.

But to be fair, it's not as pronounced.

They don't force you to make them in order to continue however.

Randomly came across a tank game that was f2p along with my friend in school during holidays. Both of us joined and derped our way towards the churchill line, then jumped over to kv-1s. He stopped playing as much in favour of other games (cough play of the game cough blizzard) while i'm still here.

I actually convinced my brother to play it - even quickly ground him up a FTP account with two T5 tanks and some T3/4s. Luckily he was too smart for this sort of bullshit.

Anyone here have ever played Tanki online, I used to play that when i was a kid and was just searching for more tanks game and found wot, check the game requirements and it was fine for my potato pc so i thought it's a f2p *cough* so why not try it.
"why is arty called scumbags, noob ect. when they need the most skill to hit the target? i think the real scumbags are the HT,MT,LT,TD's that drown themself when they are on full hp and is the last tank alive against like maybe 2 enemys that are on low hp. I really get mad at that."

To be fair I always liked tanks and World War II stuff.
