So recently I gotten bored of grinding the same tank over and over so I decide to play the tanks only with their historical armament and setup.Its been interesting and challenging in its own way I suppose. What do you guys do when you are bored of the grinding?

I find myself quite often in long weekends or holidays playing wot for too long and just getting bored but keep playing bored. Drink some bottles of coffee 1-2 liters (about 1liters is an universal safe limit), do push ups, TAB out a little bit to browse stuff and come back one hour later to keep the grind. YOU SHOULD NO STOP THE GRIND. Its boring but who said a game needs to be fun? You play the game and forget the fun. Thats how i do it!

Play Wows, although I finished the first directive for the British heavy cruisers on day one and have to wait five days for directive two to be available.  Watching Skill4ltU is always entertaining, he does it so much better than I do and I sometimes learn something.

Focus on improving in the tank, and push for three marks.

Imo, running 'historical' loadouts seems like a surefire way to lose.

Reword thread to ask "What to do within the game, when you are bored of playing (certain) tanks"

 

Because, outside of tanks - the world is a wonderful place! (just like in WOT too!)


Snowflake?

Princess?

honestly when i read what AHB_centurion said i thought it was a normal comment with no intent to offend you. In the internet its hard to read between lines but it is also matter of perspective/point of view. I saw his comment with a bit of humor etc. He said "mytical place" it is obviously becoming mytical in today's busy world where people seems to be distancing themselves from others. Its actually quite commom for people for not having enough time to go outside and meet others. I could sense the humor with a bit of sarcasm but thats just me ofc. Was kinda surprise u got a bit offended by that. But again thats my point of view and you have your own so i am not judging you for that ;)

Graphics are absolute 100/100.

 

Physics are great too. Unlike WG soap rocks, invisible rubble or floaty tanks. 

 

But events are subpar and boring. 

 

Overall life outside is a shitty game. 


I'm not good at this game, its just that the rest of the server sucks~

Running "fun" setups on tanks isn't really bad though. On certain tanks, the historical setup is a viable, and even more effective set-up, than the "elite" setup. But then that's mostly on "older" tanks like Covenanter where WG's Game Balance department haven't "streamlined" the grinds to force you to pick only the elite setups to be even barely playable.

Yes,i think running historical setup kinda spice up the game when you are bored of using better gun on some certain tanks.

oh you know...load another game...or watch more anime. or you could do something about the reality that is the mounting amount of stuff you've tactically postponed...

 

and if you're REALLY bored, KV2

1. Get in a Pz.IC and go to town on all the fresh new players

2. Hop in a light tank and then sit at the back of map behind arty, grab a beer and watch all the chat comments fly

3. Play tier 4 games and then follow the bots around with the aim of getting a lower score than them

4. Play and arty and as soon as the game starts type "gg" in chat and drive off into the nearest body of water

 

Since we often see much of the above in regular pub matches, feel free to add anything else i have missed  :B

Pz1c is the best fun for shytes and giggles .


Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

Super grindy and insanely pay to win as well. You can do some absolutely horrific things but if you've got money you can get away without consequences, but if you're poor and do something bad, you get punished super harshly.
