I want to get a general idea of the sorts of people here on the forum. A diversity survey, if you will, so that we all have a better idea as to the average population.  

 

So, just answer the poll as the top, and maybe these questions: 

 

1. Field of work. (Job, student, retired, etc.)

2. Hobby, or free-time activity. 

3. Maybe a major goal or something. 

4. Preferred ship class.

5. Something that annoys you.

 

 

Please, keep this poll nice and clean. I want to be able to use the findings as a reference in the future.   

 

1/ Student, 3 weeks from graduation with a bachelor of Criminology and a minor in International Relations

2/apart from games... i write as a hobby and to improve the standard of my academic writing. I'm also into firearms and politics.

3/ Major goal.. sometime in the future become a Police officer, it's why i began my degree in criminology.

4/ Fiji... favourite by far.

5/ annoying me at this very moment: my 13 year old sister.

1. Retail Sales Representative

2.Currently, WoWS.  Wish I would have discovered the game much sooner. Also movies, music. Wish I had time for more.

3. Make some changes in my life for the better, personally and professionally. Also get better at WoWS. Perhaps, inspire someone.

4. At this stage of progress in the game, cruisers. I do like BB's. Still having difficulty with DD's. I have only taken my only CV out once, and it was a harrowing experience for all.

5. Rude, self centered, oblivious, or generally ignorant people.

1.) Submarine Officer, USN

2.) Sailing, Surfing, Longboarding, Baseball, WoWS, WoT, FPS games

3.) Find a place or occupation where I know I am doing something meaningful and important

4.) USN CV's (since WoWS doesnt have subs -.-) even though I dont like how they have been implemented in WoWS. The whole squadron setup thing is dumb, I wish we could personally assign how many planes we want of each type. Differences between nations are good though, just not the fixed squadron setups.

5.) Related to game: Having my ship set on fire after I just used my damage control....

      Unrelated to game: SJWs and the entire PC culture that has run rampant these last couple of years....

Ayy, this is a pretty cool idea for a thread; think I'll jump in and embarrass my self!

 

1. Field of work: College student

2. Hobby, or free-time activities: gaming (d u h ), drawing, following sci-fi and fantasy IPs like Warhammer, Battlestar Galactica, Halo, Star Wars, Mass Effect, and the like.

3. Maybe a major goal or something: Hoping to better develop my own art style in the near future. Wanna get my own personal sci-fi and fantasy projects off the ground.

4. Preferred ship class: BBs. There's just something about harnessing the raw power of those giant steel behemoths and obliterating alllll that stand before you!

5. Something that annoys you: Metal fishes and random acts of arson.

From the current poll results, i think its pretty clear that the amount of "older" players that use forums is very low. That being said, i only come on the game sire or the forums when there is an issue...so this poll is not even close to accurate.

Hey since we're bringing back this thread (apparently - at least for a short while) might as well add my stuff before it's died again.

 

1. I'm a High School Junior. In two Advanced Placement classes for English (IV) and History (World History) - also in Comp. Maintenance.

2. I have many of these; too many for just 1.

  • Re-purposing things/tinkering - This by far has got to be my main hobby. It's a hard one, and sometimes very expensive, but it can include sometime fantasy thoughts like a Type 1939 fleet torpedo boat with a Rolls-Royce MT30, 105/65-cal SK C/33 main armaments, and radar, or even a Pz. III with a 75mm L/43, a reverse trans, and sloped armor (yes, I've figured out a way to make that one work) to one of my smaller pet projects like modernizing the CSS Banshee and adding a 35mm Bushmaster III and a LS3 engine to the Luchs (cuz it's cute). Also the real-world stuff like trying to fix all these Typewriters I have, or messing with some old thing to try to make it functional for use.
  • Other hobies include: Reading history, looking for uniquely modified boats, studying weaponry and bullets - especially German late-war, Electronics (Hardware mainly, I've built 2 PCs so far), collecting Typewriters, Modelling (I have a list but only 2 models so far :p), and collecting Antiques.

 

3. To get a stable job and income and a nice, small house in Galveston, TX. I'll cheat and add a couple more: Visit Bovington Tank Museum/Meet Jingles, and travel the world.

4. Battleships, fast Battleships really (That means Ze Germans).

5. When someone starts talking smack about a "crap team." That's the only thing that really gets to me.

 

 

 

Also: I'm 16.

2. Now a government drone working in the District of Columbia.

1.Retired medical laboratory technician.

2.WOWS and WSOP are the only games I play on line. In real life I play poker at the local casinos, grow a ton of veggies in the back yard garden and spend as much time hiking and camping in the Rockies as I can get away with.

3.To die before the collapse of our current civilization.I sure don't envy you young folk.

4.This is the toughest question of the bunch. There are individual ships in each class that I love to play. Because of their ability to take as well as dish out a ton of punishment for the entire class I'll go with BBs.

5.The way WoWS refuses to allocate even a little programmer time to fix simple things that would make the vast majority of it's player base happier. Such as the ability to fly more than one commemorative flag.
