Is there any purples providing a bootcamp for players? Do ppl really believe they will get better by watching Youtube content making bootcamps redundant?

Most of my knowledge comes from watching replays from well known WoT tubers and reading about game mechanics...some from asking better players or watch how they play when i toon with them.

Yes go watch Youtubers like Quickybaby and Lemmingrush etc. who talk thru what and why they are doing things while they're playing the game.

But YouTube has helped loads of people as well.

There used to be training clans, though not many if any unicums were around there. SGTA still provides the best curriculum as far as I know, even if you would need to find a trainer for it.

W-Uni is stilla round, but last time I checked it seemed like the new leader didn't do too well after his inthronization.

Had a unicum (0gata-322)  who somehow decided that platooning + piggybacking a then yellow statwise player was fun. He taught me everything when it comes to when to fall back when to push how to position myself etc. I also usually watch Lemmingrush to pass my time and refresh my tactics, all the rest are not worthy imo

I just hit my head against the wall until I realized that I can also go around the wall and not through it. Fail enough times and you'll find something that works. Just don't keep doing the same thing over and over if it doesn't work.

Sgta is gone as a training clan sadly. It would be cool if some good players set up something similar but i cant see that happening. Who is new leader at wotuni?

Read guides on wotlabs forums, Watch Zeven on youtube (older than 6 month replays, something happened to him recently) and you are set.

+1 for Zeven's replay reviews.

All my knowledge comes from trial and error.

 

You are of course free to PM me in game if you want to toon.

Just tell if you want instructions or not.

Any tier except T10. I severely dislike T10 gameplay.

There is only so much you can learn from video's.

till some poijnt the videos will provide you knowledge of the game.

But the down side is people will do the exact same thing.

Example Quickybaby had a awsome game in a T95 camping some ridge...one day later........80% is on that ridge with Is3 Oho's and camping there.....screwing up the match 

Other example quickybaby makes a video of lts and mediums camping on spots outside the playing field on some maps......one day later 80% of the Lt's and mediums want to do that screwing up the whole game trying to reach those parts.

 

Bestway to learn is platoon with better people...
