So please, relax, and enjoy a little more information about your Community Member of the Month, for May, below:
What do you enjoy the most about WWR?
I think there are 3 different things for me:
The constant changes (from defense based to merc led attacks, to garrison events or syndicate outposts each need a new strategy to play effectively and there’s always a new challenge.
The different approaches in styles of play (traps, rally leads, fillers, strategy guys) which means there’s something for every type of player whether you spend obscene amounts or just play free for an hour a week.
The alliances and how every alliance has its own persona and style of play, and the different player personalities that contribute to that. AR15 has a great mix of guys that work well as a team and fits my style of play.
What’s your favorite part of the community?
I guess it’s how interactive it is across different alliances and regions. I play in a few different regions and have bases at cc100 all the way down to cc28 so I talk to a huge range of players in my own alliances and the community groups, sharing tips and advice, discussing strategies. It’s fun to be able to throw ideas about deployment makeups with guys from other regions that may have tested similar or may have been thinking along the same lines. It’s also a great way to know who to watch out for in RvR ???? it’s always cool to get an email after a battle that says “great hit” or asks how they could have held off better. It’s rare anyone takes an attack personally, everyone just wants to play and improve and I’ve met a lot of players through mails after a hit, some of them now teammates.
What advice do you give to new and advanced players?
I think there is a lot of great players out there that I couldn’t advise anything to other than don’t forget the team element of the game. Help the smaller guys in your team where you can and remember everyone contributes in their own way even if it’s just farming and gaining tokens for an alliance event.
For the newer guys, I’d say the single most important thing to do is read!! Read the blog, make sure you understand what it’s trying to tell you as there’s usually wording that gives a lot away about how to use new stuff effectively or how to win events. Read the scout reports and battle reports, make sure you understand what you’re taking on or what you could have done better.
I did a little event with one of my alliances reading battle reports from a CP and “translating” what I learned from it – too much armor on 1 hit, troop numbers need changing on another, etc. Just spending the time to make sure the team new why we were asking them to send different rally fill or why we’d kill 70k one hit and 90k the next. I spend an unhealthy amount of time reading battle reports if I’m honest but I’m a finance consultant by trade so I always say the numbers always tell a story.
What are some of your favorite memories of WWR?
I think most of my favorite memories are from early in the game. I picked this up the same week it was released and our first region with my alliance NFG was a constant bloodbath. We terrorized everything and lived by the motto “bubble or burn”. There wasn’t a single base we wouldn’t try and we had a great group of guys ready to fill any rally at a moment’s notice.
More recent would be when I realized that my very defensive base could actually lead pretty well. Being in the U.K. at the moment we always struggle for rally leaders at times, and maybe 6 months ago I decided I’d just give it a go. I realized that even if I lost a few troops here and there it was easy to replace them and that little buzz you get waiting for the rally to hit and hope you see flames instead of losing your hero is addictive.
What’s your favorite Ice Cream?
Halo salted caramel. That stuff doesn’t last long around me.
What’s your favorite Taco?
I’m British so we don’t really do tacos, sorry ????
What’s your favorite Coffee?
Brits are pretty boring on the coffee side and a basic caramel latte is about all I go for. But I recently learned there is Reese’s coffee creamer so I’m moving to the US largely for that. My addiction to Reeses is slightly worse than my addiction to WWR.
