    Scrub Tanker looking for a clan to carry me. Must enjoy long walks on the beach at night under the twinkle of cannon fire and artillery shells. I am currently in game if you want to whisper me.

    xtc4 got a reaction from Talisker in Frontline 2020   
    I got to 6 this last time. I can't play FL that much. Don't absolutely hate the mode, but don't love it, and matches are sometimes  too long to fit into my real life.
    The only reason I got to 6 is because I discovered a way this time to semi-enjoy it: I played my wheelie as much as possible and ran all over the map like an idiot. Didn't give 2 f***s. If my wheelie was locked, I did the same with the lt-432. Progetto was only my third option. It was amazing what could happen in seemingly vacant corners of the map: picking off arty, circling lone tanks, sniping rears from a distance, and capping undefended bases. I got some higher ranks than I usually get by not caring.

    Hiya xtc4... I remember both you and bad animal. Glad to see you guys here. Can’t wait to get my tags and get started. Grinding up to both the Object 140 and Object 277... just in case. Who knows what the future holds.

    xtc4 got a reaction from PHiddy in PSA: sell unused modules   
    So I have been periodically selling my "not compatible" modules. Today I realized for the first time in tens of thousands of games that my depot is filled with unused modules that are compatible with my tanks, i.e., the lower modules from keeper tanks that are fully pimped-out with the highest modules. Those lower modules don't get sold in a "not compatible" sale.
    So I made about 4.5 million today selling the lower modules.
    Just letting you know, in case you are ignorant as me....

    xtc4 reacted to Qui_Gon_Razz in Introduce Yourself Here #6   
    Hey all, lets see ….. I was a member here way way back in 2013. I even remember launching DHO-X and being a part of that build.  My game name back then was “therazzster,” it changed when I was fooling around in another clan TeamSpeak and what emerged that day is my current name. Anyways, I play a lot less but still like to shoot tanks when time permits and wanted to retire in the clan that started it all for me, with my fellow Dads. Its good to be back.

    xtc4 reacted to russde in Tier 9...after how many years?   
    Don't play bunch, but I recently started playing again ( I found the Super Hellcat in my garage, no clue how long ago I joined ). But I bought some Christmas boxes and got a ton of Blueprints (at least I think that's where I got them...?), had no clue what they were for but by golly once I figured it out I used 'em to bypass that stinker Tiger II!
    Picked up the E75 and even though it's stock ( upgraded the turret with enhanced suspension) I like it better than that horrible thing.
    Just wanted to share...happy tanking!

    xtc4 reacted to Grimm65 in Tanks break time   
    So I realized I was all tanked out.  After grinding out almost all tier 10 tanks in the game and front lined myself silly to get the AE Phase 1 I was just burnt out from the game.  So taking a bit of a tank siesta and playing WOW Classic with Blackroan.  Don't worry I will be back but if a spot is needed in X I understand if I get removed  - will just need an invite when I decide to return!

    xtc4 reacted to SGrant7 in Big Drop Derp Contest! A Derpsgiving Bonus! - Nov 23/19 - Win GOLD!   
    Hey Dads!
    Who likes gold?!?
    I'm hosting a contest next Saturday night, Nov 23rd. The contest will start at 8pm EST and end at 12am EST. It is open to ALL dads that are part of the DHO site, regardless of which clan you're currently in. (I may be a few minutes late to start it up as the kids go down at 8pm. If anyone would like to arrange a drop or two if I'm not on, that's perfectly fine.)
    The event will have 3 prizes:
    1st Prize - 100 Gold per participant to a max of 3,000 Gold!
    2nd Prize - 750 Gold
    3rd Prize - 500 Gold
    The rules for the event are as follows:
    -The contest is limited to tier VI derp tanks. (See below for most, if not all of the relevant tank & gun combos)
    -HE is not required, but the derp gun is. Firing HEAT or HE out of the derp gun is allowed.
    -Top 3 single highest damage battles will win the prizes.
    -Only your highest damage battle will be counted, so each person can only win one prize. 
    -You need to Super Drop with everyone which will be coordinated through Discord. 
    -You need to be in the Discord server any time after 8pm EST and before the last battle drops around 11:50pm EST. (I will request a channel specially named for this event from one of the WoT Discord Admins)
    -In the event of a tie for any position, we will start a training room and the two people tied for a position will duel to the death. The person who loses will drop down to the next position in the standings.
    -Keep a screen shot of your highest battles to post here for verification after.
    Platoons are not required, but are encouraged.
    People are welcome to stream the event.

    xtc4 reacted to Ayleward2 in Derpsgiving 2019   
    Getting the announcement out early; A Discord Derpsgiving is coming to World of Tanks again this year, but with an added twist!
    Contest will start on November 1, and end at midnight EST on November 30th.  Entries will be closed at that time and winner(s) announced during the first week of December.  Winners can reach out to determine prize selection to be delivered as soon afterward as possible.
    Weekly Giveaway:  Each Monday during the month of November there will be a drawing for a $10 item out of the World of Tanks shop. This prize will be awarded by random drawing via a bot on the Discord server- look at the ‘Giveaways’ channel for details on how to enter each week, and to see other giveaways throughout the year!  Be sure to join our Discord server for a chance to win this weekly prize.  You can join by clicking on this link here
    Contest Number One: Most HE damage delivered in a game using a 'derp' (howitzer) armed tank at tier 5!  The winner will be determined as the person who delivers the most damage in a random battle using any tier 5 howitzer armed tank.  This means a 105mm M4 game counts, using the 76mm gun with HE does not count Post a screenshot of your game on the Discord server in the Tanks Derpsgiving Screenshot channel.  Derpsgiving is not taking place on the forum this year.
    Along with your screenshot, fill out the appropriate spreadsheet tab in the link below, with your player name, amount of damage, and the tank used.  The current leader’s screenshot will be a pinned post in the Discord screenshot channel, making it easy to check the top score.  Do we add a special king of the hill role/color for the current leader?
    Spreadsheet link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10oqKgyRwoLbC3Pe4GgEizFrf6XF5k8zkCTJk5PZ2olY/edit?usp=sharing
    Feel free to platoon up, and come up with a contest that YOU want to see happen or sponsor!  Have a favorite tank that you want someone to beat your damage?  Have a tank that is miserable to play and want to share the love?  Just @Ayleward2  on Discord and we will get your details added!
    Reminder, this will start November 1st, so you have some time to work on crews, tanks and strategies!  The month long contest prize will be a $20 item out of the World of Tanks shop, prize to be determined by winner based on what is available in the shop when the competition closes.  This contest is being run on our Discord server so to participate you have to join up. Here’s the link again to join the server. Click here

    I generally avoid a standard tank in FL. But every once in a while I pull out the 50 100. It can be very effective and great giggles.

    I was the opposite. Pantera 60%. Progetto down near 50%. But I think it is random: my damage is a little higher in the Progetto.

    xtc4 reacted to Juggernaut41 in CW Summary   
    Thanks to all for a fun campaign. We ran every night of the campaign. 51 members participated, 33 played 5 or more and 7 played 20 or more. We had 6 people call including first time calls (as far as I know) by Bombay and Sib, who both did great. Sib went 2 for 3, so pretty sure that makes him the DHO-X career calling win leader.
    We did seem to improve throughout with notable  improvements in focus fire, pushing and individual communication. We had a nice combination of some new strats (well, for this iteration of DHO-X that is) on new maps, and working same/similar strats on maps that we have played a fair amount somewhat recently. 
    A couple of highlights off the top of my head:
    - A down to the wire match against TEACH (a 1400+ ELO clan)
    - 7 arty comp win on El Halluf
    - Breaking the recent Steppes curse (more than once)
    - We still lost more than we won, but our CW elo inched up slightly and we certainly won more than in the last CW season. I think we have found our current ELO and can look to build from here.
    Areas for improvement:
    - our pushes can still be more tight and uniform
    - Calling was better, but still need improvement on mid-game recognition/flex and appropriate patience/aggressiveness. Some of the strats could be better... callers may consider trying to run the occasional advance as a legionnaire with another clan to pick up some ideas (even if it is what not to do). I think our strats on Prok, Steppes and Westfield are mostly legit, the rest are a bit more work in progress. 
    - We had good participation, but would like to see more. If we are going to significantly progress in CW, it would be great if we could get to being able to occasionally run 2 battles at once. 
    - individual execution. If we want to continue to improve, we need more people to play their tier tens more. Micro positioning is super important, and many more nuanced strats put greater stress on individual execution. If you are unfamiliar with your tank...
    - individual communication. We have some nice chatter and ideas happening team wide. Next step is to clean that up a bit by being specific and having a touch more of a filter. “arty in A0” and “277 in G6 taking fire from multiple in C8” and using F7 instead of saying “I’m spotted” are great examples of clean communication. “I’m getting wrecked” and “they are pushing” are examples of being too general or adding something the caller already knows. It’s also challenging if multiple people are talking at once... while the caller is also trying to talk. All of the above didn’t happen too often, but they are relatively easy things to clean up. 
    Great job all. Will look to keep the org play mojo going a bit for rest of the summer by running tier X advances at least 2x per week. Ontarget is tee’d up to call this Thursday. Hope to see you there.

    xtc4 reacted to Juggernaut41 in If u r in DHO-X u should read this   
    So we finished high enough in CW to get camo... thanks all for a good season. Feels like we improved across the board. Ups and downs, but moving in the right direction.
    Going to pay out something like 14k gold in one week. Right now I am thinking that there will be two tiers of payout: those who played 5 or more CW battles and those who played 1-4 battles. Well, I guess 3 tiers... those who didn't play get bubkis. It was roughly a 44 day season, so lots of opportunities to come join the fun and we always made it a point to get folks in. Life intervenes for all of us, but this seems fair to me. There should be some additional reward for those who show a lot. Next season I am thinking I will get right down to the player level... but that's like a lot of math and stuff (and tracking), so no promises. For those who DM'd me already saying don't pay out gold to them because they only showed for a few...I say thanks, but you showed, so you get some.
    I'm delaying a week for 3 reasons. One, I only have visibility on the last 28 days (I will track it better next time)... so if u r in the wrong group listed below, please DM me (don't respond below). Two, to give opportunity for a critique of this decision (please respond below). Three, if you can't check forum or discord within 7 days... well... then the die is cast.
