Like Minions? Getting better? Getting gold?

Recommended Posts

So it's a very good time to be a Millard's Minion (M--M).  As you know if you've loaded the game, we're in the clan spotlight (http://worldoftanks.com/en/news/pc-browser/cw/clan-spotlight-m-m/).  It was actually supposed to pop yesterday, but you know, holidays and such.  It's good timing as it fits with my own 10K games anniversary.  So I wanted to take a second to say a few things on behalf of the clan.

First, we're always open to new recruits.  Wotlabs is a forum devoted, first and foremost, to learning about WoT to improve one's game.  So is M--M.  It's a perfect fit, other than the fact that only one of us (Millard) has really reached the upper pinnacles of the game.  As an M--M that is.

Because (second) we have lots of graduates and lots of friends.  We are proud and miss the former, and are grateful towards the latter.  We're the no-drama-llama clan that has hopefully earned the rep about caring more about learning than farming territories or settling grudges.  So I want to say a big THANK YOU to all the friends of the clan, and a big CONGRATULATIONS to all our members that are seeding the top clans out there.  The bad news is that I'm probably going to hit up you purple guys soon for a training idea I have.  But that's for another day.

The third, and final, thing I wanted to do was put out money where our mouth was. The first thing we're going to do is give away Wargaming's gold if you fight us tomorrow.   Second, we want to make a clan donation to Wotlabs.  We don't need patron status, we just want to say thanks for putting out a resource that helps everyone who gives a damn get better.  The final part is we're giving away gold.  Most of that is within the clan, rewarding new recruits, new officers, good grinders, etc.  But we also want to give back to the community.  We're doing this competition in the general forums, but we wanted to do another one just for Wotlabs users.  We are always trying to learn, and one of the ways we learn is by watching fellow players have a really great game.  So we want you to teach us and we're going to pay the best teacher:

We are going to give 2000 gold to the person who best "teaches" a Minion how to kick ass and take names.  Between now and Feb 23rd you can submit a link to an uploaded replay (wot replays) to this thread for a random battle where you carry a Minion.  The prize goes to the person who does the most damage (although I might disqualify extreme CHAIing).  So to recap: a) be in a game with an M--M member on your team, b) do tons of damage, c) upload the replay here, d) beat everyone else and we send you 2K gold.  Platooning with an M--M member disqualifies you from this competition (this is going to fuck my purple platooning for a week). To keep things fair we don't want every Joe in the game hitting us up for platoons, so my officers stipulated this condition.

And that's it.  THANKS AGAIN to all current members, former members, and friends of the clan!

Wrong subforum perhaps?  Maybe you were looking for this one.

http://forum.wotlabs.net/index.php?/forum/42-clam-wars-recruitment/

This isn't about recruiting tho...

M-M got a Clan spotlight from WG, and they want to give their thanks to all the players that were former minions, while also finding a way to give back to the community!

Exactly.  I thought about putting it in our recruiting thread, but this is more of a thanks thread.  Plus I'm really looking forward to seeing some ridiculously high-damage games in this thread.  Any bets on how high the winning number will be?  Over 10K?

Can members of sub-clans win (I.E, BAKED and M-I-T), or is it outsiders only? 

Also, nice competition. 

Open to anyone outside of M--M, including BAKED guys (just can't platoon it). 

And I'm looking forward to watching your replay Marine.  I quite like my T-54, but I have yet to get a Mastery badge in it, so it will be cool to see a Mastery game.  And I was just asking around the clan about ahotchick last night, as he/she's a new recruit whom I haven't met.  Consensus is that it's a "he".

Pays to know zee Minions, friend

Thanks for the youtube, just watched it.  Good to know that I'm not far from a Mastery, I've come close to that much damage a few times. 

That was some great early hull-down work, I might have to carry more HEAT to make those snap shots like you did.  And I'm always impressed at just how aggressive unicums are.  Once that ridge is cleared, you don't hesitate you just charge right ahead to clean up the British TD and that French M4.  I would have needed at least a couple of seconds to check my map and make sure the path was clear but I'm sure you already knew that information when you made that charge.

Tanks like the T54, T55A, E100, etc. when I play them I always expect to lose copious amounts of credits. HEAT means you're exposing your tank less. I used to carry 25/24/1 AP/HEAT/HE, but now its 30/19/1 HEAT/AP/HE with the T54 and the results in my case are noticeable. And the only reason I carry so many AP is because sometimes MM is just too kind and I dont 'need' HEAT at all in any situation. 

As far as the aggression goes, it was pretty clear IMO that we were ready to push. They stopped poking the ridge, and started to break off. As soon as the E75 was a 2-3 shot, GO GO GO GO GO. I shouldn't have taken any damage from the Brit TD but I was balls deep YOLO. And, I took way too much from the M4R but again, I was in "don't care just get damage" as I was pretty sure the win was secured.

Nice replay Marine. So HEAT should be default in T-54? I'm looking to pick up as much info for the T-54 as I can now so that I can repair my tier 9 stats when I get it.

Xp some disadvantages as a metric, but dmg > xp for judging a single game carry?

Dmg for simplicity, but if someone can make a deeply compelling argument on some other metric I'd be open to entertaining the argument.

So basically... good players see us on the team, and then go full hulk mode for damage, leaving me with 1 shottable light's/mediums to deal with. Eh, i'll take the win.

I gotta get off these paper mediums, I don't think I'm ready to play them yet >.>

HEAT or GTFO

Ok. I always knew that gold usage was intense in the tank, but I wasn't sure if it was a 50/50ish split, using gold when in doubt and against heavies, or if it was that gold should be your primary ammo.

But now I know. Prepare the savings account...
