It does sound like a lot of fun, but every thing I look into says you have to have a high tier tank to play.
No gold or prem required to join a clan as far as I know. Just to start one. Some clans may require it.

The clan I joined(155th armored brigade) has a tier two tier 7 tanks req, but I took a look at the stats for the other members and many of them don't meet the req. I think it's just a filter to keep the really new players out unless it's for clan wars. You've been in more battles than me, I assume you just haven't focused on climbing the tier ladder. I'd think could talk your way out of that requirement.

Teamspeak is a must though

I'd be all over that.
Add in that I haven't had a single bad platooning experience with and adv member makes it a win win.

How do you tell how many battles someone has been in?

I am all over the board with playing.....and I have a HUGE garage, just play a little bit of everything. One evening I only played my Pz II and H35....like 30 games....it was just my mood that night.

I would even be intrested in starting a clan thing, but don't think I would have the time to manage it....if there is something to running a clan and I think that there would be.

And yes it would have to be FYYFF for the name.....how much is it to start one?....we really need to look into it.

I would bet there are enough here that would toss in a few bucks into a pool to start one....lets do it.

I really have to start platooning with you guys again. Does anybody know what happened to that Vent server Switchblade offered up? I haven't been able to connect to it in over a month and he hasn't been around to ask.

FYYFF "might" break the rules on the clan tag rules preventing "Implicitly or explicitly contain obscene language".

I think it's worth 2500 gold just to try to get it through.

I know I would pitch in to the pot if we really want to do this...but like I said I don't have any high tier tanks.

Clan "Adventure Rider [FYYFF]", done, I've created it. 2500 gold, it's another 500 to put a custom emblem on. I was thinking the white ADV oval, on the front of our tanks. Will do the .png file tonight.

If people really want to donate, I take paypal. This is less important for the in-game stuff, as far as I can tell, than it is for Teamspeak. They look like $30/3 months for 20 slots.

Had a shitty hour yesterday when my adopted kid called me for fathers day, then ranted on about her biological mom for me.

Went 20 straight rounds with the Churchill after that, bought myself the IS-3.



Then I sat down a played a board game with my 10- and 12-year old.

WOT is good therapy.

Yes, but I like it better. It's free as long at you aren't making any $ off it and have less than 100 slots.

It has an overlay they you an see while playing so you know who's talking.

Damn those rules. I'm pretty sure FYYFF wouldn't fly.

Quit the 255th. Won't let me join FYYFF until 06.20.2012 14:35 though.

I'll talk to one of the guys here at work, I think he runs a teamspeak server so I'll get some details about what it takes to get going.

If you have your own server - not sure how to set that up. More homework tonight.
