Hi I am Finnka or better known as Finnkax. I am grandpa aged person from Finland and change to US server because Eu server are overaly highly toxic enviroment. Yes - broken english is my third (or forth) language and is perhaps worlds mostly used language- aAaand I am not very good to use it. As you maybe has noted I have played a some time here and motivation has varied very high to mildly interested and health issues has rather high effects to my playing as almost all aged persons has some problems with health. Reflexes are sloowwww and fingers precision is somewhat ...well .. gone.  

 

Wows, I think, is pretty lovely game with gorgeous enviroment. I hate match-making as almost all of us do, because it is so  "unfair" etc standard complains. I am cruiser man mostly and it is unfortunate because cruisers are xp pinjatas in higher tier games except if you are tier x cruiser. Unfortunately high tier cruisers also mostly lose that hectic chaos bangbangbang battle like those low tier cruiser and dd  battles have.  

 

Have a nice time with Wows and if we meet and you are red team I hope you try to kill me and I try to kill you because of greater good which is....for FUN!

Welcome aboard the NA server. We do have some toxicity but it is far less than you see over in tanks. I haven't played on the EU server for some time but I found it was still far less toxic than the NA WoT servers. If you are interested in hanging out with a bunch of mostly older people check out the Gray Wolves. http://graywolfgamers.enjin.com/

Welcome Finn... Surprised to see the EU server is more toxic than the NA one- Interesting. 

 

I'll keep my eye open for you in game... I'm not a grandpa or otherwise but I can always benefit from someone who knows how to play cruisers (I'm a fan of BBs).

 

See ya,

Welcome to NA!  Don't listen to these other dweebs, NA is all plushycats and cotton candy.  Just a sweet bunch of gamers.  Well, except the kids.  They can be childish, vicious, immature, insulting, trollish idiots.  But other than those twits, we are a great bunch!

I'm a grandpa, as well, but still young and studly.  I am QUITE the ladies man, hehe.  Mowin' 'em down.  I still got game...you betcha.  (OH, hey, honey!  Yep, just shopping for kid's clothes, here!  Nah, don't need you to check the deals I've found, I'm good!)  AHEM.  Yeah, so I'm quite the player around here.  Got me a sweet WR and errthang.

Hit me up if you want some tutoring.  I'm pretty leet and stuff.

Welcome Aboard, Finn - from one grandfather to another.  Glad to have you and your experience around.  I look forward to learning from you and your wisdom.

Welcome!  English may be your 4th language, but if you manage to work "XP Pinata" into your post you are doing fine by me!  I am not a grandpa, but a dad of two girls who first played text based adventure games on a TRS-80, if that dates me a bit...

Welcome Finnkax. Have to wonder sometimes, what percentage of players are old guys like us. One of my kids showed me this game after I retired.

Only kinda old but a great-grandpa. Descendants didn't understand birth control.

 

I'm not nearly as old as my little brother -- he is a grandpa and I'm not.
