Sgt_Kelly - The late blossomer ?

Post  Sgt_Kelly on Fri Feb 15, 2013 11:56 pm

Hello guys and gals, Sgt_Kelly here. I don’t exactly know what I’ve let myself in for but I thought I’d introduce myself anyway.

I’m a long time strategy gamer but WoT is the first MMO I’ve ever played. It took me a long time to take the plunge because I was afraid I wouldn’t have the required finger-foo for a ‘twitchy action game’ like this.
On the plus side I have a pretty good background when it comes to tanks as I developed a keen interest in them while playing a game called Combat Mission, a highly realistic 3D tactical combat simulator. As might perhaps be expected then, I’ve come out fairly middle of the road so far, which is fine by me because I’m having a blast.

Teamwork is where it’s at for me though. I enjoy nothing more than those rare occasions where you’re left with 3 or 4 people and you really co-ordinate your actions to finish off the enemy and grab the win.

In terms of playing style and tanking preferences I’m trying to be as all-round as I possibly can. I’ll try as many tanks as I can within the confines of my garage and play them until I feel I’ve figured them out before moving on. As a result I haven’t done much vertical exploration, I hope that won’t be a problem for my participation around here.

I'm the only one who deals purely with high tiers, all the other instructors are generally on the lower tier side.

I've played a lot of strategy games myself and those can be useful experience in WoT. At least for me it was bit hard to adapt as I was used to strategy games you could pause and assess the situation. But at least it helped me to know it might not be the best idea to rush open fields Wink .

Low tiers are just fine for learning. Higher tiers 5+ are easier for learning some techniques and tank line characteristics. Denolven is our low tier specialist and Ding likes to play them also. I usually play them only in platoon when we get tired of teams failing in high tiers, in low tiers you can affect the outcome much more.

Well I've just spent a most enjoyable evening platooning with cfsmihai and bouli_ab and I'm inclined to agree. Can't argue with a run of 14 wins Smile .

If you have any questions about high tiers, you can just ask me. I've pretty much reached the end tiers for over half of the lines in this game...

For low tiers you can ask me or Denolven.

But as Kawashiro would tell you. My tactics are more awkward and unusual but as you can see from my profile I'm equally proficient. So do as you please!
