  1. I wouldn't miss them, but I guess they are still not letting back the worst offenders (illegal mods). That said... even when you blow past your first warning, and then get caught again and get banned, you can ask nicely, and they will reset you to zero battles but get to keep all your premium tanks. So you basically become a re-roll, but with all your premium tanks. That's based on rumor, not personal knowledge, so take it for what you will.
  2. 7/16/2020: 1,390 xp (and first Ace in the T29)
  3. MESSAGE FROM SCHWERV 7/1/2020 Update to DHO-X / Metal Wars I know the first 2 nights have been a little bit of a cluster and I apologize for that. When we decided to do this there was skepticism that we would get more than 4-5 people who would commit to this insanity. To really do this and have a chance to get into the top 2200 and guarantee a tank, you're looking at committing to between 4 and 10 battles per night for 14 straight days. Even then the chances are still slim if we don't get enough wins. You all just overwhelmed the system when 25 or more people said "I'm in" and we were absolutely not prepared for that. There's just no way we can support 25 people and get anyone into the top 2200, the math just doesn't work out. There are several things that we've taken into account. We've looked at current position, tanks available, member availability and number of bonds available already. For instance, someone who won't make it 3 days because of vacation likely won't make it. Someone who already has 35k+ bonds is already guaranteed a chieftan in the auction with just 5 battles and doesn't need to be in that group. All those types of things are pieces of the puzzle that we put together to come up with our "core" team who is going to play in pretty much every game and try to push to get into that top 2200. Before I go on to the list of "core" guys, I want to assure you that we're going to do everything we can to get other people into battles. We're looking at adding a couple more members so we can get an additional drop so we can run 5 each night, the 5th would be a simul and would be dedicated to the more casual players. For tonight, we're running the core team in 3 games and designating the 4th as the more casual game. That game will be the 10:00 pm drop on Sand River. The core team for this campaign will be the following: ScHwErV, Sib, Throck, Wotbot, Bombay, xtc, Beefy, JoeBelka, Ratpack, and Golfcrazy. That's 10 guys, so we'll also need support from 5 more players to make games happen. Sometimes those spots will need to be filled with specialty tanks like the guys who already have Chieftans to give us the best chance to win, but other spots can to go anyone with the right tanks who want to help. Hopefully soon the big boys will be off the basic front and on to the advanced front, leaving us with better matchups and more wins so that we can get more games in each night and include more people. For now, we're doing the best we can with what we have while trying to get the tanks in the clan that will help the clan moving forward. Please understand that we're not trying to single anyone out or specifically leave anyone out. If you're not getting into any games, speak up so we can ensure you get the necessary 5 games in to qualify for whatever clan bonus we win and so those with enough bonds can bid on their tank. --ScHwErV
  4. https://worldoftanks.com/en/content/docs/metal-wars-regulations/ Metal Wars will last two weeks: June 29 8:00 - July 13 8:00 (eastern times) 1. Several DHO-X members will be attempting to win a reward tank. All DHO-X members are encouraged to support them by filling in spots when you are online and have time. 2. I am promoting Schwerv to Personnel Officer and putting him in charge of this campaign. Juggernaut will be his primary support. The other main callers you should know from last season: Sib, Xtc, and Wotbot. 3. The expectation is that we are going to hit this campaign hard at first and reassess our outlook after a couple of days. We should not expect 15 members to get new Chieftains, but rather even 3-4 would be a great benefit. Conversely, if it doesn't work out there was no downside in trying. Thank you all, and good luck!
  5. I am very impressed with the effort, and I'm glad DadsHideout.com is able to be a platform for this advice.
  6. CONGRATULATIONS DHO-X ON A SUCCESSFUL SEASON 14 CLAN WARS We finished number 100 (out of 264) in the Clan Season Rating. We achieved Veteran status. The top 3 clans were "Winners". Clans 4 through 26 were "Elite". Clan 27 was "Veteran" with 153,274 victory points. We had 42,728 victory points. The last clan to obtain "Veteran" status was number 132 with 21,543 victory points. After that, clans 133 through 198 got "Warrior" status, and the last place team there had 3,111 points. I think we are awarded a style (and some decals) from Wargaming for our efforts. https://worldoftanks.com/en/clanwars/rating/season/#wot&sr_perpage=100&sr_page=0&sr_season=season_14&sr_season_level=10 Regarding participation: we had 69 dads play at least 2 battles. Congratulations, you made the cut and are still in the clan! Going forward, two battles in 3 months may not save you--just sayin'. Regarding PAYOUTS: Yes, we earned a lot of gold this Clan Wars season, and we are paying it back out! Consider it like shareholder dividends. You got 15 gold for each battle you played. You got an additional 50 gold if you called the battle. Final tallies look like this: TOTAL BATTLES RECORDED: 2690 x15 gold per battle: 40,350 TOTAL BATTLES CALLED: 178 x50 gold each: 8,900 TOTAL GOLD OUTLAY: 49,250 TOTAL GOLD IN TREASURY: 57,960 REMAINING AFTER PAYOUTS: 8,710 Want to see how many battles each of us played, what our win rates were on maps, and how much each of us got "paid"? Sure you do! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wcsNbKFcn2l-nSiZW14qZMHU_dZFEmriygisL-dvroU/edit?usp=sharing Behind the scenes, I'd like to thank my fellow Directors who keep me grounded: Juggernaut The_Dad Grant/gpc_4 I'd like to thank our Callers because this doesn't happen without them: Schwerv Wotbot Juggernaut Xtc Sib What else is there to say? We have an upcoming Campaign in a couple of weeks that I will address in a separate post. I assume there will be another Season later in the year. Great job everyone, I hope you had FUN, because that's what we're all here for. Thank you! Mykk Commander, DHO-X
  7. Thank you Bombay! Definitely, if you want to make a push for a reward tank, I think they have at least 10 tankers already. Contact myself, Juggernaut, Gpc, Schwerv, Wotbot, Xtc, Sib, Sly, etc. Most guys are posting in the Organized Play channel in Discord. Even if they don't get 15 commits, the rest of us will support them when possible. Given that--if you are not trying for a reward tank, please don't feel like you have to be on every night for this campaign. Chip in where you can. Thanks.
  8. I talked with Bubba earlier, so I already know you want an invite to DHO-X, and that you are a dad. I'll PM you shortly.
  9. How cool is that. Some would say "rigged", lol. Somehow MM knows!!!

    Frontline 2020

    I doubt I'll get to 15 this time. I probably played the same amount, but I played tech tree tanks missing modules and considered that gaming time free xp. Was it worth it? Not sure, it's a lot of time for little result. But, I got my Char 4 somehow anyway, so at that point I wasn't sure I needed to keep playing FL at all this season.
  11. Welcome back! Jump in Discord during prime times, you'll find others to platoon with. In the meantime, we'll get you some tags.
  12. Geesh, I played it for a bit, classic. Can't believe it's free though, wow.
  13. Great! You sound perfect for DHO "DHOriginal", we'll get you an invite "dad-soon" 🙂
  14. One month left in Clan Wars Season 14: Revolution There isn't a website to track your number of battles in this season. The official WG website will show you number of global map battles overall, or 28 days, or 7 days, or 1 day (inaccurately). What's a DHO-X member to do? I grabbed everyone's global number from the start of the season. If you look at the spreadsheet attached, you can see your starting number. From there, it's pretty easy to see how many battles you have, although forewarned, it sometimes takes a day or two before WG records them all. I'll keep my analysis short and sweet. If you have over 60 battles, stop it--nobody likes a brown-noser, save some battles for the rest of us--kidding!!! If you have less than 5 battles, well, you still have until June 15th to show us something. That said, I'm trying very hard to reach out to every one of you personally and see what's up. Some of you have talked with me, and you're fine. A couple others of you are working with me to get transferred to DHOriginal--also great. As always, I'm just trying to build the most cohesive unit moving forward. Thanks to EVERYONE who has participated! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wcsNbKFcn2l-nSiZW14qZMHU_dZFEmriygisL-dvroU/edit?usp=sharing
  15. Happy to have you. I'll have a Commander get you in invite soon.
  16. We'll get you an invite to one of our social clans soon. Welcome. In the meantime, peruse our forums and join us in Discord where you can get lots of tips, etc.
  17. For the record, a bunch of us have been playing Axis and Allies by email through some online software lately. http://gamesbyemail.com/
  18. DHO will work great for you then. You'll get the invite soon, but we're dads, so it may not be instantaneous 😉
  19. You're sitting good. The Leopard 1 has been getting some love lately, and of course, there's always the almighty EBR 105...
  20. Sounds great CypressCreek. I'm not sure how interested you are in Clan Wars, but you're pretty close to getting an invite to our Clan Wars sub-clan if you are. You would need to have a strong Obj 140, which I don't know how good your crew is there but I see you have it, and perhaps more important a well-crewed fast heavy to go along with it, which we define as an Obj 277 or a WZ-111 5a. In the meantime, I've alerted the commander of DHO to send you an invite. DHO is our most active social clan and would give you tags and a chance to interact with us. Plus, when it comes to platooning, super-drops, skirmishes, etc., all the sub-clans play together on Discord (mostly at night).
  21. Good to hear from you. You should consider transferring to DHO "DHOriginal". If Mexas can, you can too 🙂
  22. I'm a big Wirecutter fan myself. I know they got bought out, I hope it doesn't influence things.
  23. "You can check out any time you likeBut you can never leave" Plenty of dads in DadsHideout wear other tags. No big deal, don't be a stranger.
  24. Welcome to May! DHO-X is our Clan Wars clan. DHO, DHO2, DHO3, DHO4, and DHO6 are our social clans. We are all one clan on the forums. We are all one clan in Discord. We are all one clan when it comes to platooning, skirmishes, even running Advances. However, Wargaming rules are that a clan wars battle must be fought where all 15 teammates have to be in the same clan. Unlike Advances, we can't have 12 dads be from DHO-X and 3 dads from DHO/DHO2/DHO3/DHO4/DHO6. This isn't about kicking anyone out. This is about creating a gaming environment for our most active tier X dad-tankers. One where if there is a Clan Wars battle, and we see you are online, we know we can count on you to help us. There is still a month and a half in this current Clan Wars season to contribute to DHO-X. Otherwise, we'll get you transferred to one of our many social sub-clans and no big deal. As always, if you have any questions you can PM me through the forums, through Discord, or in-game. A couple of you have reached out to let me know about new jobs with new hours, etc. If you're a long-time member with a history of supporting DHO-X, exceptions can be made. If you are not comfortable talking to me, reach out to any of my other officers. ps. New recruits and transfers welcome! For the record? We're having a lot of fun in DHO-X right now.
