Couldn't find any "newcomer's section" kind of thing on this Forum. Just wanted to introduce myself. Coming from the EU and started a NA account. (= username whould you want to visit me @home) The latest, let's call it an extremely (un)lucky round with KOTS hasn't got to do with my arrival on your wonderful server here... Much... :Smile_veryhappy: I dare say I'm a veteran on EU and wanted to expand my world view and joined you guys.

So far I'm having a blast. FINALLY some decent stats (disclaimer: that goes from the date of publishing: nov 21st 2018. No guarantees for the future...).

Most of "my" server love you guys. @Notser (yes: to pull a Notser has become a globally accepted term), @iChase, B6 and yourpeacekeeper) and I'm one of the silent adorers of @LittleWhiteMouse. If someone should speak to her: we direly miss her on our Forums.

 

TL;DR: Hi!

Welcome to the madhouse.

He wasn't kidding.

Also, hi!  When they put the limiter on who could post based on games played, it put a real crimp in continuing to participate over there.  I've since made a secret EU alt-account that I'm slowly grinding through.  It's really weird not getting focus fired, lemme tell you.

Welcome, welcome, @Ferry_25.

Are you familiar with our forum cat, @Lert?  I think he lives in a Low Country too.  :Smile_trollface:

I'm always interested to hear/see what the different metas are like on different servers.

My experience over on the EU server is ours but a little more aggressive.

Hi Ferry and welcome to our side of the pond. VOC over here is an acronym for Volatile Organic Compounds. Also an insider reference to flatulent gas.

You did land in heaven as that's the VOC we are referring to. Me and a few others in the clan are Dutch :cap_like:.

Edit: Although we are not very active you are always welcome to join.

My jaw just made contact with my desk. Hard. I'm amazed and totally overwhelmed by your warm welcome! I see a lot of questions/ statements and an invite to a Dutch (!!!) clan. Please don't be offended if I don't quote you all. I did blow all my available likes top down to you guys. The rest comes from my heart. It'd be a WOT. And that's not my favorite.

Played a couple of rounds y'day. Got kicked out of the witness protection program (rightfully so) and met genpop. I'll try to answer everything the best I can. Consider I don't have much games under my belt yet. From what I've seen the NA meta seems indeed to be more aggressive. Which I can't stress enough to say I like. Also I saw far more willingness to teamwork. Put on my bold hat and took command of the fleet a couple of times and really: it did work out!

 

@daangerousI tried to log into the game but I forgot you guys have patched already. My client will do that tomorrow. I'm honored by your invite. Not very active is NP. I will be having my main attention on NED anyway. Bakx and me started that clan >1 year ago. He's the Emperor and me DV. I hope you guys run discord. I can speak English well but it'd be also nice to communicate in my native tongue.

 

OMG! Are you KIDDING me? @Lert is a cheesehead??!! No way! Now, please let me keep my sanity and don't give me the 020, Lert..... :Smile_veryhappy: Yes LWM's problem is pandemic on our server: fanboys/ girls. Failmu is raging about that all the time. Though I must admit I oneshot him once but then he was a legit target. Testing Indianapolis back then. Coming from behind an island, full broadside. Texas send 'm back to poooort y'all....

 

tl;dr. Thank you my dear fellow ship nutjobs! I love you guys already.

 

Edit and off topic: I visited the US a lot. Also saw USS Texas and Midway and all other museum ships in SD. With the other ships one is a USSR sub. Now the thing is: my dad and my dad in law both served in the navy. My dad IL was born in the USSR and my wife and me saw the same class of sub on which her dad served. I found that really impressive.

Yep, geboren en getogen. :)

I'm a notorious champion of the addition of Dutch ships into the game. You can find some of my writings and suggestions in the post linked in my sig. There's an Admiralen, 1047, de Ruyter, Java, and tons more.

Gaaf man!!!!

 

The absence of a Dutch ship in Wows is IMO the greatest obscenity in this entire game. I've fulminated and ranted to the edge of temp ban about it on the EU Forum.
