Tank Boom! Episode 19 - Coaching Craziness

In this week's episode listen in on a couple of coaching sessions that Lokeen and I run for two gentlemen who asked some good questions and were willing to jump on our TeamSpeak server and be open to constructive criticism.

The first and longest segment is Lokeen and I with Tmonkey - he is a newer player with 1200 games or so and 8 different tier VI tanks. He enjoys mediums, so we platoon in VK 30.02 Ms and Lokeen jumps in with his Victory.  We end up with a few extra Triarii members jumping in the channel with us and it gets a bit noisy, but we have a great run of games and there is some great analysis and learning involved.

The second shorter segment has dmrgamer and I running a couple of games with the last one being in Churchills.

It's edited heavily - I"ve taken out the gaps and chunks of gameplay with nothing to learn.

If you are interested in public coaching sessions contact Lephturn@tankboom.com or Lokeen@tankboom.com and we'll jump on Team Speak and have some fun!
