This week’s question is something that every gamer can answer even if you don’t play World of Tanks.
Question: What’s your favorite beverage to drink while playing World of Tanks?
For me, I’ve got to be extremely English-Australian and say that if I’m not drinking coffee while playing World of Tanks, I’m drinking tea. Obviously I always have a glass of water nearby to quench my thirst, but I never opt for sugary drinks or energy drinks.
In terms of tea, I’m partial to a nice Japanese Lime, Earl Grey, or a Russian Caravan. Nothing keeps the nerves under control like a lovely steeped loose-leaf tea.
However, if it’s a Friday night or the weekend, nothing beats a scotch whiskey. Though, I do have to be careful as there’s a chance my WN8 could drop...
My main beverages of choice during a long session of World of Tanks are usually either coffee or an energy drink. If I'm having coffee while gaming, I'll opt for iced coffee just because I won't have to worry about the temperature. Hot coffee will usually turn luke warm by the time I get through a couple battles, and I'd prefer to not have to microwave my drink during my play session.
As for energy drinks, my favorites are the regular green Amps. When those aren't available, I go for the sugar free Red Bulls or Monsters. I keep a water bottle close by and alternate between the two, so that I'm not just knocking back purely caffeinated drinks for the duration.
I try to stick to plain old water whenever I can because I’m trying to cut down on sugary drinks and soda, but if I absolutely have to indulge my sweet tooth, I usually go for the fruit punch flavor of the Rockstar energy drink. I doubt it affects my performance at all but it tastes good and it perks me up a bit if I’m feeling sleepy. The only problem is that, since it is still technically an energy drink, I can’t have more than one a day, otherwise I’d be so wired that I’d be up half the night.
Now we want to hear from all of you! This one should be easy enough to answer, so please leave your replies in the comment section below. Who knows, you might be chosen to win an M4 Improved in World of Tanks!
