Update:First Lesson 1/23 @ 8:15PM EST

https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0E4FAEAC2FA0FD0-wotulesson

 

Background: I used to be able to keep blue recent stats.  I took a lengthy break from the game due to RL stuff, and now I am back playing again.  Unfortunately, I am returning with a minor physical disability that is taking some adjustment in hardware, attitude, playstyle, and tank preferences.  It is what it is.  Also, there are new maps, tanks, etc and some of the maps I know are different or played differently.  So my recents now suck, and I am not sure if I can even get them green again.  Time will tell.

 

What hasn't changed?  My desire to help new/bad players.  I used to offer free training/lessons on the fundamentals of the game.  If there is interest, I will start them up again. Old thread: http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/566913-want-to-get-better-how-about-some-training/

 

Who is this for?

Are you a Blue or Purple Player?  You have my respect, but I can't help you.  Let me know if you are interested in helping me!

Are you a Green Player?  Is there an aspect of your game that you know is weak?  I may be able to help.

Are you New, Red, Orange, or Yellow?   You probably don't know some of the fundamentals and I can help.

Don't know your color?  Click Here: https://wotlabs.net/ and put your WoT name in the top and click "player".

 

Format:  1/2 Hour. Lecture first with pictures, then questions, then demonstration in a training room, final questions.

Requirements:  Discord and a desire to learn.

 

Note:

All lessons will be done in the training room on my discord server.  If you are not familiar with discord, please test it before the class.  Link to my server: https://discord.gg/vSsVETa

You do NOT need a microphone, though it helps.  If you have trouble with discord or want to test it let me know.

 

Have a question?

Seriously considering this...  Really appreciate your willingness to help those of us who are floundering in WoT.

I absolutely would be interested.  I feel as I am stuck in a rut.   Thank you for putting this out here and your willingness to take on this task.

WOT Uni would definitely be an asset to the game in 2020, Sir.

 

FWIW: back in the day, WoT Uni YouTube videos and posts immensely helped me understand WoT mechanics and taught me how to effectively play the different tank classes — as well as understanding the battle roles of various tank classes.  Goodness knows—with so many new players buying & playing tier 8 Premium tanks—how many low-experienced players will benefit from your observations.

 

Taking into account the new battle meta, economy, and tactics, I for one look forward to your sagacity.

Well I think I am very qualified for your courses.

 

Hitting a tank in a weak spot and making it create damage would be one of those you prefer not to teach as watching videos won't help explain the fact that even when firing where they are weak, nothing happens.

 

How did you manage to do over 30K in battles in one month, at a per day count it would be (1000 battles a day for 30 days If my head is doing the math right, sort of tired right now), it has taken me since when I joined, June I think to get 5000+ battles and I have done 40+ match marathons.

Not sure what you looked at, but I have been here since 2013.

As for not teaching weak spots, I think the links I provided help, but there is no consistency in the armor models.  A cupola is a weak spot on some tanks, its not on others.  Same with lower plate but angle matters too.  So its something you have to understand the basics and then just go practice and learn what works on what tanks.

 

Spots still open...looking like first one 8:15 PM EST on 1/23.  Sign up here:

Shout Out to RumRunner151 for taking the time to have his training session, even though only 1 guy showed up.   I found it insightful and look forward to further lessons.   Thank You Sir!
