I check in on Irma every now and again and wish he was still here, but trolls won :(

I won’t post a link as the trolls will be too dumb to find him without it...

Latest articles on how to deal with death stars are interesting and the one about A A Milne’s poem about tanks was enlightening!  For me anyway!

I didn’t know they found a poem from The creator of Winnie the Pooh about tanks!

The forum is certainly poorer without Becx. And it is sad that you see AFK/Irma so little, I guess even the "forum mafia" have limits to what they will put up with.

IrmaBecx came across to me on this forum as a positive, helpful and scholarly person.  I didn’t share his opinions on every topic, but always felt I could have had an interesting and polite discussion about our different views.  I still occasionally read the articles posted on Irma’s blog.

Not only I miss Irma, simply I miss the forums.

Read my guides there

I want just that, and replay files.

I miss him too. His posts were always well written and entertaining, whilst also being informative. A rare talent on the forum these days :-(

It is totally bad that someone who offered as much good advice, entertainment and experiences was allowed by WG to be driven away by trolls.....

Not only is the game poorer by a significant degree, the forum has become a place where the asking for help, or offering advice on any topic results in septic responses from loads of different people, and there is zero concern (action) from WG to make this forum return to something useful and entertaining!

Irma Becx was not only a valuable contributor but also a friendly voice.   Online forums can be a bit peppery at times and it’s good to have someone who softens the tone.

I agree with Mini that Becx being awol is simply part of the bigger picture of there being so little actually discussed about the game and playing it. Tank stats, updates, conspiracies, arguments, but little about actually playing it.

Subscribe to his blog.

https://tankphilosophy.wordpress.com


He is posting regularly and has a YT channel too.

 

His blog is hard to find if you don’t know where to look, but it’s troll proof, as comments need to be approved before being posted.  Drop in and say ‘Hy’.

What a load of Sh@t. I've been away from the forums for a while and come back to this news.

 

His/her posts were always very well written and useful.

 

Forum is a poorer place now.

I miss him, too. I'm not on Discord, so I probably miss out on whatever is discussed over there.

He's still around, but the salt and tears on the forum haven't changed, so doubt he'll be back. AFK/IRMA people spend more time in Discord these days. Being a veteran of Usenet, it doesn't bother me so much.

Relatively new (blitz), what happened? Is there a summary, he didn't get banned or?
