    That rumor is why I went for the tank, if this was the last shot at a 907 I had to give it a go. I for one agree about the diminished value if they sell it in the bond shop. If that starts to happen then people (like me) will just save bonds and the attendance for campaigns will drop. Easier for a guy like me to build up bonds over time then commit to the full on two weeks.

    20+ days would have cost me a house and half of everything else.

    So...you want to try for a campaign tank

    Yes sir, get the tank first. other junk second.
  6. Hey there, about a month ago I decided I wanted to try and get the OBJ 907. It is a tier ten reward tank given out during a campaign event. I had a little bit of info as to what this process is all about but once I got involved I realized that I was not as prepared as I thought. The following is a brief breakdown of what to expect and how to better prepare if you ever plan on doing a campaign. If anyone else with experience wants to add feel free. 1) You will need to find a clan that is focused on getting its members reward tanks. This can be checked on clan tools https://clantools.us/ You will want to see that the clan has repeatably got reward tanks for its members. At least 30+ members should be getting a tank. Your stats will have to be good enough that the clan will accept you as well. You will need to join the clan at least a month before the event so you can get used to running with them and they can get used to you. As a side note I had very little Organized play experience, the curve was steep and the feed back harsh and real. 2)The campaign works by acquiring fame points. You get them by playing games and get more when you win. The winning part is important. The cut off on this campaign was the top 2700, under that no tank for you (thanks for coming out). You will have to rely on the clan commanders to set things up for success. As well your own performance comes into play here, if you do well you get picked for more teams if you keep going full potato you will not get picked as much lowering your chances of getting a reward. 3) Make sure you have the tier ten tanks required. Type 5, Maus, 268v4, E3, E4, T57, S conc, bat, Russian meds, 50b, TVP. I am probably missing a couple here. You need to have as many of them as you can to get picked for the teams. Different strats call for different tanks if you dont have them you dont play. 4) Before the campaign learn to navigate through Teamspeak (lots of rapid channel changing), Clan tools, the global map and the campaign team functions. It is fast and hectic, the callers have no time or patience for bumbling and you need to know where your fame points are at at all times and be quick to ready up. 5) Time commitment, This is the one I was really not ready for. It was a two week campaign running from 7pm est to 12 or 1 every night. After the first 4 nights I realized what I was in for. 6-7hrs each night with very little break during it, you have to be ready the whole time. Some of those nights I only played 5 games some nights 13-15. In total I played about 100 games over the 2 weeks. Had to make some expensive promises to my wife as well. 6)Drama, as the campaign wears on you start to see the best and worst in people. There is no guarantee that you will get a tank. It came down to the last 4 battles on the last night for me. One of my friends did not make it. It was stressful as you are not in control and I was lucky to get on the teams at the end. We had one person kicked out of the clan for poor behavior and two that quit. I kept quite the whole time showed up and did what was asked (it worked for me). Would I recommend it or do it again? If you want a 907, or t95/chiefton it is the only way at the moment. It will make you a better player. I had some great games and met some new people. It almost cost me my marriage. Oh ya I did get a tank finished 2655 out of 2700. Brand new 907 for me. Whoop whoop!

    Hunt the Sheriffs: DHO version

    I can confirm the kill. I put one into madia at the start. It was then a yolo race between Kilo, Lt Jakson and I to get him. Some good after game messaging as well.

    Do you want more out of your game-play?

    I have had the good fortune to toon up with LT a few times over the last couple of weeks. It amazes me how he can do so well while giving me great feedback during the game. If you want to take your gameplay up a notch I highly recommend it. If he can put up with my noobishness he can work with anyone.
  9. This is a great topic, I look forward to reading more thoughts/ideas from other dads. DHO is the first and only clan I have been involved with. Over the last year I have spent a lot of time on TS. Here is what I have noticed. 1. It is the same 10-15ish guys on 2. Same guys toon together most of the time (I am guilty of this as well) 3. Organized play clan wars, advances have been non existent for some time now. I am not familiar with other clans so I do not know how they work things but I do have a question for all DHOers "Why are you in a clan if you do not participate at some level?" " I would be super interested to hear some answers to this. For me it is hanging out with like minded people blowing stuff up as well as learning how to get better from different players.

    Ranked, where u at?

    I found it quite easy to get to 9 and then things really changed. It was almost like a whole different style of play. Mistakes were really punished. I did see some players with overall poor stats in the higher chev range. I am mystified as to how they got there? It must be more then luck and spamming games. That being said I am now grinding for Type 5....
