I'm not so good myself. I make up for it simply by being vibrant. I've personally gone through that guide once or twice and it didn't affect me very much, mostly affirmed ideas that I already had. Best of luck to you improving though. And one more thing, perhaps be more confident in yourself? In WarLight, confidence is not necessarily a bad thing, when you can delay orders and moves don't happen all at once but in a delicate pattern. You might have a 5 bordering a 7, but he might just use that 7 to finish a bonus, and because you didn't attack you wasted your opportunity to win the game. Oh crud! I better not release all of my strategic secrets!

It's surprising what sort of stuff you run into when you search up Warlight on Wikipedia. M'Hunters also have a similar guide (by Norman) on their clan page, but I think the GG guide is more deserving of a Norman award (sorry Norman).

EDIT: Also, +1 to you for not simply accepting mediocrity and striving to get better. :)

One final thing: challenge random good players to 1v1's. A surprisingly high portion of them are going to accept and give you advice on what you can do (specifically) to get better.

i don't consider myself very good, but im always willing to help out a former clanmate. invite me to games if you want. also, semice is about as good as me, or maybe better, and he is usually willing to play 1v1s too.

more games is always good for you, as long as you're playing challenging opponents.

SuperSeizure I played you in a game which I won and you just said "gg" and moved on to the next game.

PROBLEM - I think you just go from one game to another hoping to improve and now you feel you need to make a thread as you feel your not improving.

There is no point in playing game after game after game and not knowing where you went wrong... I was a 1300 player when I was first ranked about a week ago... I kept working up and down.. Losing to top players in the ladder and managing just about to win against low-rated players.

Now I am a 1450+ player at the moment. I've increased by 150 points in a sense rather I keep it that way is to tell in the future.. But how did I get up there?

Everytime I lost a game I go over it. Doesn't matter if it was luck or skill.. I will always look over here is a few examples that I've learnt from and made sure I didn't do it the next time.

Example 1. https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=9360471 If I controlled Xinjang I would've defended my 2 valuable bonuses... Now I know that if I go for a combo there.. I control that territory before I take a bonus from my combo.

Example 2. https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=9360543 I went for coral coase + South Austrailia. Which I learnt is a very unsafe combo and has made realise to watch for counters which are likely to be taken.

Example 3. There is no example 3..On that same page of my past games there is a 8 man tournament I won and 5 RT Ladder games in a row when I dreamed of just winning 3 in a row. That is the reward of self-analysing.

I will tell you another story.. I never felt comfortable with picking or my gameplay. Played against this guy who is a top guy. We spoke for about 3 hours playing 3 strategy games.. One of them was analysed fully.. Made completely rethink my picking strategy. He answered questions about "What if scenarios"..

So I started this RT Ladder last week. Was 1300 rated. Now I'm 1450+.. With a 8 man tournament won and have a comfortable rating with 1900 not ranked of course in 1v1 ladder.

You can improve... Anyone can. You just have to force yourself to improve.

Don't just self-analyze. Talk to your opponent. If you run into someone good, try to start the conversation with a little bit of self-analysis of your own (e.g., "Heh I really screwed up with those 3v2's on Turn 4.") to get them talking. Be willing to listen to what they have to say if they're going to stick around. Challenge them to a rematch.

It's how I got (a little) better at Strat ME.

Check some of the most popular tournaments.
See why they do this and not that, try to have your own opinion of what to do without seeing what each had done in history.
Turn by turn you will see why they play like that.(better then what you would have done :P )

Slowly but surly you would start to understand better the reasons.

And if you still find difficulty you can always start a topic and ask a question linking that particular game:

Promotion/Relegation League group A is a good place to start.

surprisingly decent advices in this thread.

link to promotion/relegation league forum thread is here, it lists the tournaments of the different groups:
https://www.warlight.net/Forum/87756-promotionrelegation-league-season-16

there are also some livestream events happening where experienced warlight folks go through games and talk over mistakes and options. szew supposedly doing it regularly on wednesdays. and the WGL staff guys doing it every weekend. so look out for forum posts announcing those, or the livestream red light blinking on top right corner of warlight page when livestreams are taking place.
