Nope, I don't see a problem to park an ELC behind a Japanese superheavy.

And in reference to the theme of this topic, "The sleeper has awakened." 

 

 

It has indeed - this is a great idea imho. Though it is in the early stages, this could ultimately morph into something which WG can support and/or incorporate into their new player development. which has been sorely lacking.

Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.

I'm surprised there would be any negative comments on a thread like this.

Hey Profit, I sent you a PM on this. While I am not a great player, I have run training rooms for basic comp match stuff - getting and maintaining hull down positioning, side scrapping, double side scrapping, echelon positioning, etc. A caveat - I did not train for map awareness or prime locations since that was comp team developed information, Also, outside of side scrapping, these items are not always useful when solo, but it does help when working with platoon mates. 

 

Please let me know if you would like me to go over these items in a training room with some of your training folks, which could then be passed along to the masses.

My one mandatory requirement for training sessions is to teach not to go Valley in Lakeville...:trollface:

This is part of the weirding way that we will teach you. Some thoughts have a certain sound, that being equivalent to a form. Through sound and motion, you will be able to paralyse nerves, shatter bones, set fires, suffocate an enemy or burst his organs.

To this point you are right.  I hope we prove you wrong in the long run.

Well played - lol

 

The Weirding Way was so poorly portrayed in the 1984 movie, but luckily the Sci Fi channel mini series adaptation was able to (sort of) correct things. Would really like a Sci Fi mini series about the last two novels, about Miles Teg, but will prob never happen  :(

Or even the first 3 prequels.  The fight against omnius and the origins of the Atreides / Harkonnen story would make a great trilogy.

Sorry if this has been brought up here already, dang this thread has gotten huge, but I have a friend that recently started tanking. I've offered to run some low tiers with him, but he seems reluctant to do so. Could a veteran kinda sponsor a new player, and company them to training? Maybe be their meatball to shoot at or something?

This is a great idea, and I would love to help any way I can.

 

PM his GT or have him msg me on XBL, 

I'll get him in the training.

I have been playing for more than 2 yrs i have been in a couple of clans,  not one of the vet players ever said this is how you do this. I am slowly getting a grasp on how to play, after nearly 12,000 battles i am a below average player,  so something like this would help make the game fun for the new and some older players like me. I don't how many times i wanted to throw the controller through the window, but i want to get better

 

And Now I am here to train you :)

It does imho, but I am a super Dune fanboy so hard for me to be pragmatic about it. There was also a combination mini series of Dune Messiah and Children of Dune done by Sci Fi which I felt was excellent.

I read those written by his son as well, and yes, though his son lacks his fathers writing skills, the stories of the Machine Wars would be good to see.

 

PS - I looked at Amazon and they were selling them, but WOW - expensive!

Time to negotiate a premium load out % for the league?  Not sure why WG is worried about what shells are fired in a training room.  Perhaps he thinks we will load up on premium ammo there for free.and bring it back to the normal mm?  

 

Premium ammo will be used and explained in WOTHELP training rooms.

 

Premium ammo shouldn't be allowed in the training scrims so learning how to aim for weaknesses will improve the trainees knowledge of armor.

If this helps even one player understand the game is better for it. This idea will not change everything immediately, but making the attempt to do something is so much better than doing nothing.

You can, of course, watch videos, look for help online etc to try and improve. Making a mistake and having an experienced coach show you why it is a mistake has much more value.

They need help guiding the players to the wothp clan so they can start to make a change.
