With the ongoing shoddy service from Virgin Media, particularly the horrendous packet loss at peak times, I’ve been forced to take a break from World Of Tanks and my new clan.
It was just beyond frustrating not being able to play properly, control lag, game jitters, etc, and was only leading me to get frustrated and whine at my friends.
I’ll be back as soon as I have an alternative internet solution.
I didn’t want to say anything until it was finalised, but I have joined a new World Of Tanks clan, the Infamous Challengers.
A CIRC4 deputy commander, InvincibleMrT, had been trying to get some backing to start a new CIRC clan with the goal of forming a training corps for those who actually want to improve and get up to competitive standard, but it didn’t seem to be going anywhere so he went it alone and invited me and a few of the core of CIRC4 along.
Should be interesting to see how this grows 🙂
Well, it was fun, but the shine has finally worn off of being in CIRC4.
I made friends with a great core group, but there is a large proportion of the full (100 members) clan that never seems to play, and a larger proportion who don’t want to join company, or team battles or even platoon with others.
Over the last couple of months we’ve tried to get an organised tank company together with some limited training but the turn out has been…poor, to say the least.
CIRC4 seems to be classified as a ‘fun’ clan, not expected to take things seriously, which is fine, but there are also those that think just being in a clan makes you a better player, yet don’t want to learn or communicate, making group play difficult and frustrating.
I have something else lined up, but not saying anything on that just yet.
What with the dreadful state of Random Battles in World Of Tanks and some new mission requirements requiring you to be in a clan, I was lucky to be watching Circon’s Twitch stream and heard about the creation of a 5th clan for his followers, CIRC4. I applied and was accepted!
Hopefully, the benefits of being in a high profile clan with a common interest will mean more people to platoon with and a chance to get into Tank Companies in a big way.
The Beard? Well, the Beard is the true hero of Circon’s streams 🙂
I have to admit I’ve been playing the odd hour of World of Tanks again since early April, mostly because Wargaming finally added some more content to spice things up, and promised even more changes in the near future.
A friend told me about the addition of the new, fast American turreted tank destroyers, and they are just so much fun zipping from place to place and putting accurate shots on target.
Wargaming have also dramatically increased the crew skills allowing for a bit more of a tactical choice of skill sot support the role you want your tank to play. A free skill reset allowed us to re-allocate and try out the new skills, which was a nice touch.
And then…patch 0.7.3…Finally the Russian heavy changes!
Excuse me, my tanks are calling and the weekend is a-wasting 🙂
