Hi, welcome to my den.

 

I'm gonna give this a shot, having a thread where you guys can come here and ask questions about whatever. I mean, anything. Noob questions, specific questions, advice, whatever you're comfortable asking. I'm hoping it'll be a social place, but it's up to you guys if you're interested. First, let's get some things out of the way. Here's my accounts, servers, profiles, etc to see what I'm up to.

YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEYfPZ14R0dwqJVpaxO7gJQ?view_as=subscriber (sub 4 kewl kontent)
Discord: _Ntwadumela#3656 (my Discord account if you need to contact me)
Discord server: https://discord.gg/Qxbs9Xu (pls join 4 kewl instant kommunication)

 

Alright, let's take some questions from the audience.

 

But wait? Don't you already have a YouTube thread, you big hypocrite?

I'm only kind of a hypocrite. I figured it would be better to consolidate everything into one thread where I can post my content here, you guys can ask me questions, and I can share random Blitz things. Or maybe not Blitz things. Depending on my mood. I can promise it'll be Blitz-centric. 

 

Discord? You have your own server?
Yeah! Clicking that link above or right here is kind of like the Discord equivalent of this thread...you can ask me questions that I'll probably see faster and the same types of things will go on there as well. On the Discord server, I'll also have read-only channels with all my guides and community contributions that I've made, which I won't be able to do here quite the same for the sake of organization. 

 

I'm still missing the point. Why are you doing this?
I'm hoping to make an area where you can easily get my attention for whatever you need help with or is burning a hole in your head. Another one of my goals here is to be able to organize everything I've made into an area where you can learn things as well. I also look forward to launching community events with all of you guys, whether it's for research into the game, playing countdowns, or having fun in training rooms. It has to be fun or rewarding for it to be worth!!

You're a nerd.
Technically not a question but you're not far off.
 

Check the below posts for more information!

_Ntwadumela (Maverick)

By the way, if you were wondering about the name change, I was tired of being called a Logan Pauler (his merchandise brand is called Maverick or something and one of his slogans is "Be a Maverick", with the intention of telling people to be different and stuff). I had no idea about any of this when I originally picked my username in June of 2016, when I was really into the movie "Top Gun". I am still a huge fan of the movie, but my tolerance wore thin after nigh three years. My new username is the name of a magnificent lion from Africa a few decades back. The lion was an amazing hyena killer, and his name means "he who greets with fire", which as someone cool pointed out, is awfully appropriate for a tank game. So yeah.

Upcoming News for Blitz!! (from the past month, rest will be achieved on Discord, all the more reason to join my server)
-will include sales, credible leaks like supertest or open test info, and explanations of events, game updates, or new content being added to the game

May 22, 2019

Offer: Type 59 Chinese Tier 8 Medium Premium, garage slot, full 9 slots of equipment, Ding camouflage

Price: 7500 gold (55% off)

Review: Pretty solid tank. Decently mobile, great turret, 7 degrees of gun depression allows the tank to use its 100mm gun and strong turret effectively.

Buy it?: This is probably the cheapest WG will ever just flat out sell the tank for, and it comes pretty loaded with stuff. However, if you already have the T-54 mod 1 or another good Tier VIII premium, don't impulse buy just because you see its "55% off". I'd personally recommend the T-54 mod 1 to those who are just starting at Tier VIII, the tactics with this tank are not as simple as heavy tank driving or playing a TD. Overall, I'd recommend the purchase but only if you're really looking for something new to play or need a good credit grinder/OP tank at Tier VIII.

 

May 24, 2019

 

WZ-111 and WZ-112-2 are on sale There's 3 bundles, I'll list them here.

1. WZ-112-2 for 12.5k gold

2. WZ-112-2 with camo and attachment for 14k gold

3. WZ-112-2 and WZ-111.

I believe they come with the Mighty Bear avatar as well but that's irrelevant. Anyways, let's talk about these tanks.

 

WZ-111 is absolute crap. There's no reason to own this tank. The WZ-112-2 is a better Glacial 112, with a stronger lower (and upper) plate, more side armor, and smaller cupolas. There's basically no other downsides compared to the Glacial which is kinda [edited], but whatever. But is it worth 12.5k gold? That's up to you. It's one of the better IS-X's at Tier VIII because it doesn't have to deal with any pike nose stuff, and when you hide the lower plate, the tank becomes very hard to penetrate. The gun is a standard Communist 122mm heavy gun. The mobility is actually pretty decent, with a 42 kph speed limit and decent p/w ratio for a heavy. If it was 10k gold, I'd recommend it, especially to those without an IS spam tank at Tier VIII. 12.5k is a lot for a Tier VIII, but I will say it's a good tank.

 

 

In addition, there will be 3 new Defender tanks coming to Blitz. It looks like they're breaking the mold on the Tier VIII 400 alpha adaptations.

My YouTube Content (again, will only post the last 3 videos to avoid massive spam, the rest can be found on my channel or on my Discord server, links are in the first post)

Watch me do the 3rd highest damage in NA for the Lowe. I attempt feeble commentary while still trying to work with my crappy audio. Don't worry, I learn how to use my equipment properly next video.

 

Ok, not gonna lie, this was cool. I got 2 replays of the same battle, from my perspective and another perspective from my team. Both replays are Masteries. I again attempt to provide commentary about teamwork in public battles and stuff and both players, myself and serial_killer are thinking during the match on how we can play our tank roles the most effectively.

 

This video is less about education and more about you either cringing out of your chair or laughing your head off. I throw the game amazingly in 2 replays, one in an amazing derp montage in the T49 and the other, a personal best EVER damage wise in the WT auf Pz. IV.

Thanks for starting this. I always enjoy your contributions to the community and game. I look forward to watching this blossom into something informative and entertaining. 

 

I’m an old Top Gun guy, so yeah, I think Maverick is a much cooler tanking call sign. Ntwadumela is cool if you know the backstory, but doesn’t really roll off the tongue or inspire awe like Maverick. Reminds me of when DMG changed his name to Azula (or whatever it was). Totally my opinion and certainly not my place; so no disrespect meant. 

 

Thanks again.

A good heavy driver knows how to make shots bounce off their armor, how to use cover while fighting at the front, when to get out there and just take the shot to protect his team, to keep the reds attention focused so his team can flank, and to consistently do damage while all of that happens.

Nut-wad-umm-ya

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

Not gonna lie, I miss the name. It fit my tanking personality pretty well, I tended to do very little tooning and I still don’t play my tanks very traditionally ;) but who knows, I might switch back someday. For the time being though, I like Ntwadumela and its cool to have people guessing just what that means.

im thinking for making a video about difference between "heavy" classified tanks.  This class of tanks being the most used and backbone of team... but sometimes ppl begin to think heaviums like conq. are the same thing as e75 or 50-120 is the same thing as conq.   being classified as a heavy suggests it should take attention from reds.  there are so many fake heavies that need a different class of their own ... so thats the rough idea on the topic.
Any thoughts to add you guys might have?

Can you run the same active account on multiple platforms? I've been mobile from the get go but it strikes me that PC would be nice for replay watching/analysis. Will it save replays across either platform?

Simple way to get around this. No, it doesn’t save replays between 2 platforms because they’re all local files. However, since you can play replays from both, just share the replay to Discord and then you can watch it from any account or platform.
