New player? Need help learning the game? 2.0

Postby raventhefuhrer » Mon 5 May 2014 20:07

For assistance, it's better to either PM me, or friend request me directly on Steam ( http://steamcommunity.com/id/raventhefuhrer/ ) rather than posting in this thread.

Hello,

I'm Raven and I really love Wargame. I love it so much, that I am committed to seeing the community grow and become even better, one step at a time. A big part of doing that is getting new or less skilled players to a point where they don't feel overwhelmed, or overpowered by the game - where you can enjoy it, and feel capable/competent enough to participate in most multiplayer.

While the tutorials in ALB sucked, and in Red Dragon they're pretty much non-existent, the community has stepped up a lot in terms of writing guides and articles for new players to browse and gain theoretical knowledge on how to play Wargame - they are everywhere and they are great things, so please take advantage of them.

But those can only get you so far. For Airland Battle I made a thread offering tutoring services to new players, or just players that wanted help learning the game. I'm proud to say that I considered it to be wildly successful: Link

So I've decided to re-open this service for Red Dragon as well!

What I'm offering you is the chance to talk one-on-one with an experienced Wargaming player. I can help you with understanding game mechanics, building decks, learning new tactics, and above all the chance to play a few games on the winning side.

My hope is to find as many people as I can, to help learn the game, and hopefully those people will be interesting in sticking around and adding to the Wargaming community for years to come. All I ask is that you have a microphone, preferably teamspeak, and a pleasant attitude.

I've friended you both on Steam, so hopefully we can get into contact soon.

@ Znk - I realize you posted in my ALB thread, so thank you for posting again here. I apologize for not getting in touch sooner, but since Red Dragon launched I really haven't thought to check my old thread until today. When I searched your steam name, I got several profiles in the search but the one I picked is 'zonk' from Poland, with 55 hours played in Red Dragon so hopefully that is you.

I realize both of you are probably in Europe, and my schedule will be a little busy tomorrow so I might not be home until later in the evening for you guys, but hopefully we'll find time. If not, I'll be free Wednesday.

How do you feel about not so new players just wanting to maybe learn new tactics and strategies or even a helping hand when you're on(you and one new player vs me and a new player)

I can vouch for Raven; him and McMacky are great guys who know the game well (they can, and will teach you a few things!). I went from a W/L of 0/7 to now 30/15 learning with them. Not only that, they share the passion of the game; lots of shop-talk in teamspeak, reviewing replays and making recommendations where needed. All around great friends to play with.

Just so y'all know where I'm coming from - I found out about the Wargame series in March, I knew I'd love it. That learning curve goes way down when you have someone you can talk to about it. I started with SandyGunfox's 200-Page Guide on Steam Guides. Put in the requisite 15 or so hours in single-player so I had a general idea of what was going on. Working my way up from there! Rock on.
