I'd be hesitant to teach a class outright, but I'm game to assist with stuff like hull down, side scraping, ridge line work, etc.  I'm a huge TD player so I'm pretty good with bush work and ninja skills.

(and Coffee makes me poop too)

Make it casemate versus turreted TDs. IMHO

Really darn cool, guys!  Time *sucks* for me, that's precisely in the middle of dinner time over here on the west coast with the family, but I'll definitely catch the videos!  :)

Great session tonight.  Thanks a lot.  I was able to claim 3 tanks and a bunch of consumables and reserves I had won and didn't know about.  :honoring:

So, I guess you will need very good players to teach, as well as the absolute best, most advanced player to manage things, and decide what tactics should be taught. I am talking about a CEO of sorts. That being the case, I am humbly offering my services, and I wont even charge for them. LOL

 

Seriously though, I could use some serious lessons. Unfortunately I just discovered this thread 2 hours after tonight's lesson began. I watch videos quite a bit, but MOST of those videos involve very good players, playing in games where they do massively well, because of their skill(for sure), but much of it is often because they find themselves in situations where chance plays a big role. Such as being lucky enough to continually find enemy tanks who are faced in the opposite direction, and are already weakened enough so that they can be hit enough times and killed b4 they get their turret or hull mounted cannon turned around in time. That, and some seriously lucky snap shot hits, bad play by the enemy tanks they come across, and mostly because the player is usually top tier in these games. So, although you can learn some lessons from the game play, you also discover that things rarely work out as conveniently as they do during these 1 in 1000 gameplay videos.

 

I have never actually played games together with people who are there to specifically tutor you in real time. That would probably be more beneficial than watching the best of the best of the best youtube replays.

Awesome!

:)


 

We talked about:

- Change password = free gold

- Tank Rewards: Kursk and Halloween (some ppl had never been on TR. One ended up with a Type 62 on their first door!!)

- Missions: daily and special (boosters, credits, components, free tanks, female crew members)

- "On Tracks" (consumables, components, free tank, boosters, accelerated experience + crew training, discounted tanks)

- WoT Acadmey (free tank)


 

Didn't really touch on Tournaments (as they're suspended at the mo), Mastery missions, or recruits.

We'll cover them in the future.

I'll check to see if I can make a vid out of the training.

AbramsSmakr -

Yup, I watch the "pro" vids to learn new places to go on maps, and watch the 'RNG smile' upon some lucky SOB.

;)


 

We mostly cover basics of Mechanics, Garage Craft, Maps, etc... and sometimes a "how do I fight this tank" when requested.

You are welcome to come by and Platoon or hangout anytime (we are very guest-friendly), and if there is something you'd like to teach a class on, PM me and we'll do it!

I reset the award for the two Tier III tanks I didn't want in exchange for more consumables so I netted about 1.75 million credits worth of consumables, 100 Gold (including the value of Personal Reserve awards), and a tier V tank (which I'll probably sell).  Not bad for an hour's worth of "work."  :teethhappy:

 

Thanks again for putting that together for us.  :great:
