I have a plan that I believe could make the game better and is within our capabilities.  This plan would try to address two problems, game population and quality of play.  

 

My idea is to start a tier 5 recreational play league, that will teach our newer players the mechanics and strategy of the game.  Each team would need a volunteer coach.  Players with a blue  or purple WN8,.with good people skills and a desire and ability to coach would be the first and most critical volunteer positions.  

 

My marketing plan for this league would be to find another group of volunteers to play low tier matches and broadcast a very short message at the start of every game highlighting a common issue new players have understanding the game, an invitation to the recreation league and where to go for more information.  

 

As.an example,.tired of being killed by tanks you don't see? Contact any WOTHELP clan member to learn about spotting mechanics and also for information about a new recreational league, coached by top players who want to help you get better and have more fun.  You can also find more information at ( forum web address.  

 

There would be an initial training and practice sessions with the coaches where they can teach mechanics and tactics, ie hull down, side scraping, maps and map awareness.  This would be held in practice rooms. Scrimmages during this period can also be arranged.  Then turn them loose to play real games against the other teams, culminating in a playoff and championship.  

 

This is a fingernail sketch of the idea.  Halopro and Proflex each have encouraged this thread and have agreed to help.  To make this work we need more people onboard.  Please let me know if you are willing to be a part of this effort.  

 

Halo and Proflex, you better get into this thread and support the idea. 

 

just making an assumption from you gamertag,  but i bet you were high AF when you thought of this.  You were probably like "everybody shhhhh! Dude, I just thought of the coolest thing ever, it would be so awesome if.....  an explanation would follow that was full of dooods and awesomes"

Do you regularly kick puppies? 

 

That post brought about something helpful, even if only 4 or 5 people join WOTHELP but they get more personal satisfaction out of the game as a result that is a win. A little happiness is spread. Nothing is achieved by cynical degradation of fellow human beings.

Some people are just unhappy pricks and feel the need to make sure everyone else feels the same, if they can’t be happy, no one can be.

I think your criteria for coaching may need some more thought. My WN8 is purple but I don't recognise 90% of the maps or 70% of the tanks available. If and when I do feel the need to advise a fellow player I constantly get told "You don't know $#!#. You don't even own a tier X". Most of these lower than average players need reminding that its a team based game and camping behind your arty is not helpful. Support and map awareness is key to improving play first and foremost. You can talk about side scraping, hull down etc once they have learnt to drive their tank more than ten yards from where they spawn. I like your thinking though and I'am yet to hear a better proposal. Good luck. BTW someone pass RapidFoal the joint...........sounds like he needs it :hiding:

Maps and tanks are part of it. But there is plenty of stuff that is universal regardless.

 

How to side scrape for example. While there are subtle differences between tanks that can do it, the theory behind it is the same.

Maybe WGCB could volunteer to make the game better. Nah, just kidding. They're busy working on the next round of FV215 183 buffs.

We will be utilizing the Tank academy sub forum.

Rai will help us get the threads pinned once we write them up.

 

Trainers will have one to gather knowledge, and another for attracting, training and tracking Trainees.

 

A bonus code for a week of premium Will be a good reward for those that apply to earn it.

 

A once a month training scrim would be good too!
