Fellow tankers!

I am pleased to announce the official release of http://www.wotsilverseries.wordpress.com , the new unofficial portal for the silver league!

 

It has long been noted within the silver league and during the rare official stream that Wargaming generally neglects the silver league–interesting since the silver league is the feeder for the Gold league they try so hard to promote. This website is my attempt at helping this, by providing people with the latest silver league news, scoring, and team rosters.

 

The news articles will be based on Silver league, with the exception of major patches. Topics that I’m expecting to cover include team interviews, match analysis, and general announcements.

An archive will also be available, allowing access to previous seasons’ scores and teams.

 

Other features include player profiles and match day schedules, so that you can get to know the players betters and quickly discover what the next battles are.

 

I hope you’ll enjoy this new tool! Feedback and comments are always appreciated, and will always be considered.

Happy Hunting!

~Sheller3

That's not bad, but I think your color selection is kinda odd. I am not sure that blue actually works out so well. It just doesn't look quite right to me. Overall, not bad on the website.

Was trying to match the gold league colors, but between not being able to change the red headers (downside to free wordpress) and not knowing the official hex code for the blue...If someone could find the official hex for the blue I can change that, but in the meantime was guesttimating roughly what it was. Update: Managed to find the hex code for the blue they use (at least on wgleague.net), and the site has been updated to the new blue background. 

 

Otherwise thanks! Yeah I'm hoping to keep expanding it, and it'll really start showing it's potential I believe once the season starts again--unfortunately it's a dead time right now so I can't do too much related to the upcoming season.

Ikr! You definitely inspired me for this project, and I retained the base functionality of your site as a feature for mine. Maybe some time we could co-op...? :)

Next interview with Teal Team 6 is up! I apologize for the delay, like I stated in both a separate article and at the top of the interview life was busy for a couple of days, so I never had a chance to go interview anyone until last night. Enjoy!

Also, if anyone hasn't checked the webpage for a while (thinking since release), you might to want to go look at it again--I've done quite a few interviews since release! Finally, to get notifications on the most recent articles, make sure to follow the website on Twitter @WotSilverSeries. For notifications on when I'm personally livestreaming on Twitch, follow @Sheller3_Gaming.

Next article is up! Since I haven't been able to get a hold a Wildblade for the past two days (I JUST got in contact), unfortunately it isn't the interview with SoV I was planning on doing, but hopefully it'll be interesting nonetheless. Like I said I just managed to contact Wild, so I should be able to get that interview out within a day or two now.

Unfortunately, due to personal medical reasons, I'll be unable to do an article until Saturday (5/6) at the earliest. I hope you understand; I'm really not trying to skip making content!

I know it's been a while since I've posted an article, but I've been feeling pretty rough the past couple of days. As such, I haven't been able to interview anyone yet; however, I'm finally feeling better, so I'm hoping to interview either today or tomorrow. That means an article in the next couple of days! Well, that's assuming I keep healing, but I'd say that's a pretty safe assumption at this point. :)A more complete explanation as to what happened can be found in the most recent update I just posted: https://wotsilverseries.wordpress.com/2017/05/07/next-interview-coming-soon-explanation/

:PBasically what it is, I'm bad@art but don't think it looks too bad. It's at least kinda what I imagined, albiet more cartoony...

-------------------

Still working on getting an interview, it's hard getting in contact with people with the friends list broken! Empire's captain has been inactive since February, I'm struggling to get in contact with RnRT's captain, and I haven't had time to contact anyone else between end-of-semester projects, work, and silver tryouts (remember I play silver too!). Although Skipstar's reply did remind me, I know Poi's usually on so I might try to grab him tonight...

 

If any of the captains (or if a member could let the captain know) of the below teams happen to see this, could you shoot me a forum message so we can schedule a time for an interview? They typically take about five minutes, and you're all playing hard-to-get right now xD.

  • EMPRR
  • RnRT
  • Quantum
  • WARMACHINE
  • Lincoln Brigade

For reference's sake, the other teams that I haven't interviewed yet but am not currently planning on interviewing are:

  • Danger Close--they're not in silver anymore
  • Salt--there's some rumors going around that they've fallen apart, or at least are in the middle of a major restructuring. I'll give it a bit to see how it develops, then possibly try an interview.
  • Rage Quit--AFAIK this team fell apart after last season, so there's no team captain to interview. If one of the members sees this and I happen to be wrong, please let me know and I'll add you to my "yet to interview" list.
  • Aegis--they also fell apart, so there's no one to interview here either.
  • Awaiting Battle--yes they're a DQ, but they were DQ'd towards the end so I still consider them a viable option. However, once again I'm pretty sure they fell apart.

 

Since there's only a couple of teams left, I'd love to hear what you guys would like to see for the remainder (or at least the next segment) of the off-season! I could try interviewing some of the wanting-to-enter teams, but I'm only aware of a couple of them right now, and there's no guarantees they'd even make it to silver eventually.

...I was sitting there looking through the team list, and was like "I swear there was more I hadn't interviewed, but I've triple checked...." Welp you were the one I forgot apparently. I'll edit that list. :hiding:

Eyyy finally got around to doing another article, namely I finally got healthy enough to be able to function and finish enough of the life stuff to have the time. This is also something different today, namely not an interview; it's definitely for those people who don't play the silver league, and would at least like to know the basics. For those of you who do play the league, feel free to comment on the article and add your own information; if there's enough feedback/additional information, I'll make a part 2! Enjoy! https://wotsilverseries.wordpress.com/2017/05/24/silver-series-the-basics/

~Sheller3

 

Edit: You guys are lucky today, doing a double-post! This one's boring though if you've been following this thread, as it's just a re-post of the team interview list I gave previously. However, it's still a good reference tool! https://wotsilverseries.wordpress.com/2017/05/24/team-interviews-the-list/

Next article is up, on time for once! After seeing how the last article was received, and realizing I failed to mention a lot of critical things, I decided to do a part 2: https://wotsilverseries.wordpress.com/2017/06/04/silver-series-the-not-so-basics/ Enjoy!

Woohoo!! Next article time! This time, I cover the tanks used in the silver league in more detail, instead of just mentioning the meta ones: https://wotsilverseries.wordpress.com/2017/06/11/silver-series-the-tanks Enjoy!
