I was looking forward to a couple hours of Tanks today. Had a few hours in port and was going to run home and get on for a bit.
I got home and realized I left my keys on the boat :sigh, I would have got blown up anyway

What is it about this game that makes it so addicting?

Court is now in order.

There is some grousing going on about platooning, logging onto TeamSpeak for gaming, and our clan's laissez faire attitude toward suchness. Let it be known, and reminded, that Clan FYYFF is laid back, casual, and nobody owes anyone any-damn-thing. Nor does being a FF'er oblige you to be in our clan - if you want more structure, feel free to go elsewhere, no feelings will be hurt. Hell, Mambo does it all the time and we still love him.

Rule 1: Don't be a dick.

That is all.

Court is in recess.

I like laid back and casual. I have to much structure elsewhere in my life, I like to stay away from it when I'm trying to have fun.

Bought 300 kits (200 repair, 100 first aid) on Friday, and have earned all that silver back. Now on the grind to Ferdinand - only need a couple million more.

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

I'm drinking wine and eating cheese, and catching some rays, you know.

Trying to keep it impersonal. This applies to everyone, myself included.

As the biggest admitted-dick here - the guy who used to shoot random-pub teammate Lee tanks for sport - I fully appreciate the laying down of the gentleman's (as in Smithy's case) and gentlemen's (as in all-around agreed upon undickness) ground-rules, and thank the Judge for the sentiment.

By all means, get a hold of me if you're looking for more structure and I can at least suggest a few clans I've had experience with. Each group, based on their Teamspeak layout (which is based on how they approach the game as a whole), is different, and I can at least tell ya the types of groups I've been a part of (which is getting to be pretty high, lol). And, as always, back in the FYYFF TS I'm always made to feel welcome despite my errant ways (usually - lately Geek has been ignoring me to go ride righteous terrain on an actual motorcycle instead of staying indoors and shooting tanks ... the nerve!).

There simply is no other TS personality like a fellow motorcyclist. You guys seem so much mroe real and based when we bullshit or actually plan battles out.
