Wargaming stepped up to the plate and delivered an Alaska to user /u/Alaska-CB1 who, if you've paid any attention in this sub at all, has been a hard core devotee to the ship since forever. He had family that served on the ship and preserved a plank from it and gifted it to him. Without getting too personal, he is a vet himself, has been going through a lot lately personally/medically and disclosed that he is able to play WoWS only on an ancient MacBook in this thread
From that prior thread:
tldr is the OP has health issues due to a war injury, was proscribed 4+ hours a day of video games for therapy to help deal with motor skill loss, and loves the Alaska. And someone in WG was very nice to the OP
And now it's our turn to show some love. =)
He was resistant at first but has agreed in PM to accept parts for a new/gently used PC build
to do himself that will be built by /u/MacG467 now and shipped out to /u/Alaska-CB1. If you are interested in participating, please respond to this thread or PM me and I will add your parts/items to the list/build, and message you privately with delivery instructions.
edit: If we all agree that g-g-g-g-ghost's mobo/cpu/ram offer is accepted and works, then I think we're about done.
Anyone else that wanted to kick in a little something towards shipping or whatnot,/u/MacG467 has said its okay to post his information and the following:
Cash donations can be sent to /u/MacG467. His PayPal is [email protected]
He's looking for cash donations to assist with shipping costs and the following parts (all purchased at the Parkville MD Microcenter) to assist/offset the following:
- Case: Corsair Carbide Clear 400C – $91.99 – He's buying this case for a specific reason.
- HSF: Cooler Master Hyper 212 – $32.99
- Windows 10 Home – $119.99
- PSU: Corsair CX650M – $64.99
I am personally sending funds tomorrow via paypal.
