Hey all,
 

I'm taking suggestions for my next issue of Maverick's Minute.  If you know what this is, just skip this little intro. If you're just clicking on this for the first time and don't know what this is, let me explain. In these short but percise threads, I attempt to give my take on an opinion or give some advice about WoT Blitz. They are structured to give a main arguing point and leave room for discussion below. They should be short enough to be read in only a few minutes. Obviously, the target audience is the new player looking to get better, but it's important that the discussion should have points of view from all levels of skill, player-wise.

 

So for this particular next issue, I will be collaborating with a friend of mine, Gavidoc01 from Triarii. I'd like to ask him some questions about how Blitz has changed throughout the years, but I also want some questions from the public to get the answers to what you guys want answered. After all, this isn't for me, it's for the playerbase. So please, drop some questions in the comments below. 

 

Again, if you missed the previous 3 episodes and want to check them out, they can be found here:

What about discussing Supremacy in pub games?

 

Players may see competition/tourney games in this mode and they may get the concept, but in pub games the idea of cap pressure or working the map/clock the last minute is often lost. I was late to playing Supremacy and misgivings remain, but it is not going away and all new maps and reworks are being built for this mode. 

 

For myself, the "hinge" in Supremacy when a cap grab turns into a flank (or vice versa) can reveal challenging decisions as to how far to push, when to break back, etc. I'd be interested in the thoughts of more experienced players in this mode.

Do some kind of analysis on the stages of a wotb player and what thought processes are common at different levels of play, maybe include some tips on how to move up the ladder in terms of thinking about a match and how to play it

Can resetting camo be covered in 1 minute?  Something that is underused and misunderstood.

Are the players truly getting worse over time or is it just pure tinfoilhattery?

 "In this game you’re either a predator or you’re prey.

 Prey doesn’t win at the same ratio as the predators because prey doesn’t have the same attitude. Unfortunately their are are not enough predators to keep the prey in check and  the prey is running rampant. Prey doesn’t care about WR, either directly or indirectly. Thats why they do what they want, that’s why the game has been dumbed down and  that’s why MH was brought about. Without a check it will continuously get worse until the predators are extinct" 4sfield

Sounds good

Yes, but as that's not a matter of opinion, I'll write up a separate one for that

I like that. Nice and specific.

Thanks guys. I'll review these and figure out what I'll do from here.
