I see people saying shit like ''I want a clan that will help me grow'' like wtf are you talking about this isn't a gardening game we're not growin plants its risk. No one is going to be able to help you learn how to play risk its so damn simple. All you have to do is observe the map. Pick the area in which you can expand the quickest fill in bonuses and break the enemies bonuses. Thats it. A clan isn't going to help with that. Read some shit on risk strategy if you want to learn but asking someone to help seems ridiculous. Also theres no fucking point to being in a clan other than having a flag next to your name.

to be fair the original game its based of is risk.
there a few clans out there that do that, darklords namely, and clans provide an alternate comunity inside warlight that can allow you to join clan based tournaments and games and such. not that i imagine you didnt already know that...

Since you have mastered the game, I want to be the first to congratulate you on your soon-to-be-obtained #1 spot on the 1v1 ladder.

I dont play 1v1 ladders, also I never said I was the best nor did I even say I was good I just said its such an easy game to master. And that I have had no trouble with it. Nowhere does that imply skill it just implies an understanding of the fundamentals of the game. You may want to go back to HS.

The first definition of "master (verb)" that I find in Google is "acquire complete knowledge or skill in (a subject, technique, or art)" - so yes, if you have mastered a game, you play at the highest level of skill attainable in that game.

Since you are a master of this game, I can see how the idea of having a group of people who play together, give each other tips, encourage each other, and overall help each other to grow as players would seem redundant and pointless. However, for a mediocre player like me, it's quite helpful.

Thats big talk for someone with a 35% win rate. If this game is so easy to learn and you are so bad at it then I guess you are just the world's laziest person instead of being the world's stupidest person (although its certainly up for debate).

nono, its both, nikolai. what if he is like me and doesnt realize he is too lazy? for all we know all of his wins came from his most recent games. and he is actually a master, he just might hide his skill every time someone plays him :P

edit: if it is such an easy game to master, then how do you have such low win rates, vormulak? :D

I know the original question is a trolly one (and a fairly well designed one) but i'd just like to point out that you can grow remarkably as a player. Reading the guide on M'Hunters clan page is an excellent start, but through practice you can learn all sorts of player trends, tips, tricks, proper distributions, etc. I do almost exclusively play team games, so that may make a difference, (A 3v3 RoR is FAR more than expand the fastest, it's a lot more about where you go, when to let one part fold and push another, which teammates to help, etc.) but learning a new trick and properly using it to reverse a game you might have otherwise lost... that still happens. Teamplay is fun like that, particularly when you start recognizing names and playstyles.

Easy way to explain , you chase after community , and you can depend by them where enemy would go.
Clans are still optional. You dont need to be in clan to gain experience.

To get back to the original statement,
Its true that clans do nothin ting to help you win or learn the game, but its a good indication about the types of games the player is likely to join, esp good when making tourneys.

The game however, while based on RISK is very different.

At warlight the turns happen simultaneously, in Risk the turns are taken one player at a time, and the player can decide to continue or discontinue attacking based on how his attacks are progressing. So strategy is very different.

The cards in risk are much more simple and totally different from warlight.
In Risk you collect cards and match 3 to gain troops depending on the turn. There are many more cards with different uses here on warlight.

Even on the original RISK world map, the two games can not be played the same way.

punching bag you dumb f*** I win half my matches. Also why did you hide your win rate?


i had hidden my win rates on all my accounts before, because some people actually check those before joining a game. unhidden them now. this is my first account though and i don't use it that much anymore hence my fairly low win rates. btw why the hate dude? I even said you could be the master you are acting to be. sounds like you are trying to change topic or something. :P

*ahem*

moving to a more on topic bit.

Its true that clans do nothin ting to help you win or learn the game


I would disagree with this. (but agree with everything else Tim said). It depends on the clan you join. Some are not very skilled, as a whole, and so yes, those ones will do little to help you. Some are elite clans, and you are unlikely to learn very much in there, as far as I can tell. This would not be because the members are mean, or unhelpful. Rather, to get into an elite clan, there is generally some pre-requisites, making these also a no-go for the less skilled players.

There are clans in the middle however, who probably can be helpful. Some will require you to have some base level of skill, for entry, but the hurdle is far lower for these than an elite clan. I have only been in the clans LEA and Illuminati, LEA seems pretty mellow about letting people in, if you are not a jerk. While I am not one of the important decision makers in Illuminati, entry does seem to be partially skill based, and probably at least as much, about attitude/behavior. I do not know anything about M'Hunters but they seem fairly open as well.

Some clans focus on teaching more, M'Hunters, Illuminati, Corp, 101st, Acme (later, not yet), possibly Olympus, these are the candidates I know of that should be reasonable.

While it is certainly possible to get a lot better without a clan, by reading guides and analyzing your own games (similar to chess!) it always helps to have a teacher, who can point out errors in your strategy and tactics, etc, looking at the actual game - something a guide cannot really do. This is where it comes in handy being in a decent clan. People are far more likely to spend some extra time helping a clanmate than some random player they just met.

And before anyone starts jumping me for being a clan lover, I did not learn primarily (at first) from a clan myself. Rather, I lucked out and happened to meet some very nice and experienced players who were reasonably happy to have a nooby teammate that would actually listen. Many of them did not join a clan until recently.

tldr: clans are helpful but you have to join one which intends to try and help weaker players, but which also has a roster of reasonably experienced players.
