Rifles Ready! is a tribute to Company of Heroes, the greatest World War II RTS ever made, but more than that, it documents the personal journey of a player from an utter noob to a less-noobish player determined to improve his game.
That would be me, CorkscrewBlow. I grew up with RTS games and am now working in Washington, D.C. as a reporter. I hope to leverage my professional skills in writing for this blog, and who knows, maybe I’ll even land a few interviews with Relic staffers.
But more importantly, I dearly hope that players of all skill levels will find a useful tip or a thought-provoking article here that will make them reflect on how they play COH and what the game means to them.
I also hope to have a steady stream of well-known, highly-skilled COH players contribute to the blog, sharing the wisdom they’ve earned after countless battles to inspire new players and keep a great game’s player community alive.
For additional spice, Rifles Ready! includes random posts about my new hobby of collecting detailed die-cast miniatures of iconic COH tank and vehicles, as well as reviews of RTS gaming hardware and even reviews of WWII movies and books.
