Hi, i'm Richard, 30 years old from Nottingham, UK.

I work as a mechanical engineering consultant, specialising in railway systems, I served 9 years in Her Majesties RAF as a Weapon Technician (Armourer) serving on Harrier and Chinook aircraft. I served worldwide, and did two tours of Afghanistan.

I started playing WOT in Closed Beta (those heady days fighting Tier 8s in my T28) and I played briefly in the first versions of clanwars. I fondly remember maps such as swamp, Kormarin and Pagorki (cookie for those who know what this map is now called).

I'm really enjoying WOT at the moment, but only TC (and the odd fun platoon). Serious tc is one of the reasons I'll be leaving SGTA soon (to free up space for those who need it more) but I'll continue to be involved in the academy hopefully through instructing artillery and maybe participating in TC when I'm free and you need an arty player Smile

I'd like to keep in contact with you, I want to learn to play arty someday, and I will possibly by S-51 and rebuy Grille, within like two months. I'm interested in some arty-toons, when I own one of these. Is that OK?

Now to claim my cookie: Pagorki was the old Mines map.

Edit: I'm interested to see Komarin back in the list, after all the Dragon Ridge/Serene Coast type maps. First time Komarin must be a strange experience for the new players Razz

monty, I'll be avilable if you need a so-so scout, or someone for a SU-26 trolltoon Smile

Sad to see you leave SGTA (soon?), but I get what you're saying.

It's not so much 'leaving' as giving the SGTA space to a new player who needs the teaching more than I do (not that I haven't learnt a great deal from my time in SGTA). I'm acutely aware of the waiting list with people in much greater need of instruction than me.

I'm hoping to stay actively involved in the academy though, both as an instructor and hopefully student (I'm basically a total noob in Tier 6+ tanks). However, the clan I'm joining smashes out Champion and Absolute TC regularly and thankfully (through not making any noob mistakes) I've been invited to join them for TC and maybe even CW (if I can ever grind out this goddamn Batchat 155 arty that is).

Most of the people I've tooned with in the clan are on my friends list, and I'm hoping by staying involved with the academy I'll continue to add good team players to my contacts for toons and general fun (maybe even TC when we need extra players). I'm also available for 1 vs 1 training (in arty) and as a punchbag/target if required by other instructors.

Of course Steel, anytime I need a pro scout I'll drop you a line, scouts who don't suicide in the first 30 seconds are a godsend in randoms Smile

Keep your eyes peeled in the guides section BTW, when I get time I'll be writing several guides to some of the low tier arties which some of you might find useful.

You've been very helpful and engaging with us ever since you joined!

I sincerely hope you will teach students here after you leave and that you will put a good word about SGTA to everyone after you leave ^^
