  1. That would be a possibility but I would counter that the way to deal with Tier 7/8 Prem CV's would be to increase the team size from 7 to 9. Even then a good CV driver would be worth his weight in gold but there are counters to it. We do this in the Supremacy League and while it's harder it's doable. But to your point Ascinius, if they are so concerned about OP Carriers, and I don't think they are I think it's the opposite I think they KNOW CV's are broken, then yeah Tier 5 might be the answer. It would certainly up the player base. Honestly thought I wouldn't be as happy about that as I would be at tier 6 or 8. But doing this at Tier 10 right now is not the way to go. I'm afraid the only way to get it changed is to play it and show them just how broken it is. That or show people like me how broken it's not. I could be completely wrong but we will find out unless they change things. Stout Hearts -AK-Warhawk
  2. As currently structured this clan battle system on the surface is going to directly counter-act what wargaming says they are trying to prevent with a low clan cap in keeping certain "high skill level" clans from just absolutely dominating the system. The fact that they somehow think giving someone a tier 10 "loaner" that may only be currently at tier 5 and a new player, is a good idea just absolutely flies in the face of what one could only deem as what is appropriate. Sure there are not a lot of people at Tier 10 I will give them that. If that is the case then why on God's green earth would you not start clan battles at tier 8 instead. Also restricting how many classes of ships you can bring, when it comes to BB's, and eliminating one class entirely seems to be their way of saying "we don't think you can come up with a viable strategy so we are going to make things "easier" and give everyone participation tropheys". If I wanted to play a game designed to be run on a rail I would have played the second variant of Ghost Recon when it came out years ago. I am willing to be that the ship compositions will look something like 1x Conquer, 2x Minotaur, 2x Des Moines and another CA or of their picking and a DD of choice. If they weren't ready to release this game mode then don't rather than do this but the better option would be to drop to tier 8 at least. Stout Hearts -AK-Warhawk
  3. I have often found myself either being silent on some of the decisions made by wargaming when it comes to Warships or I have been one to back their decisions. Today finds me in a completely different spot. I'm not exactly sure who was thinking that a clan cap of 50 people was a good idea but I find it rather devoid of thought or reason. Seriously, only increasing the cap by 20 slots? Why so low? I've heard some say it was because wargaming didn't want "power house" clans to do what was done in tanks where only a few clans were reaping all the benefits but if that was the case how does limiting clans to a 50 man cap help that? Instead of one big clan, now you have 4 or 5 or more doing exactly the same thing? Multiplied out by even just the 3 top clans that I can think of off the top of my, rather sometimes empty, head like CUTE, OPG and FOG, you then get 12 of the same "power house" group that will still do pretty much the same thing. I mean come on! Even a cap of 80 members would have been at least livable, while 100 (which you already do in Tanks) or higher would have been better. I hate to throw this phrase out there, but if one would want to cry about a blatant money grab this would be it. I'm not against a company making a profit, I firmly believe in capitalism, but this is bordering on offensive. To top it off the pricing system to upgrade your base to increase your clan cap by a measly 20 slots, only serves to hurt those who may not be as active as some of the bigger clans out there. At Armored Knights, I don't foresee the cost to increase our cap as being an issue but I would imagine that there are other clans out there that will struggle with it. Why was it so important to wargaming to reinvent the friggin wheel anyways? I really, really hope that at some point in the very near future someone in wargaming will come to their senses and realize that this feature needs to be revisited and give us the ability to raise the cap higher than just to 50. There is an old saying we used in the Navy, "if it isn't broken then DON'T FIX IT" Stout Hearts -AK-Warhawk
  4. The one thing that frustrates me most as a BB player is other BB players who think they can sit in the back and snipe, or are otherwise afraid of getting their paint scratched. While I understand Zoup's concept and what he is saying I just know that if a cap is instituted for BB's next it will be people crying for a DD cap, then a cruiser cap. It is kind of like when people start asking for specific ships or ship classes to be nerfed. Be careful what you ask for you just might get it.. In spades. The deep water torps might be a good way to counter the high number of BB players but I really think re-working the CV's would go a lot further. Anyone that was an alpha tester will know how OP they were then, and while I'm not suggesting a return to that WG needs to buff them some. Do that and make the CV's a much more viable threat and I think you will slowly start to see a change. Maybe figure out a way to reward cruisers or DD's only for their play. For example, cruisers get a credit bonus for planes shot down or DD's actually being rewarded for spotting damage but limit what ever you do for those two classes to those two classes. But if you are going to cap BB's I think you are going to have to go to a more structured team make up which would then increase the queue time. And waiting, for most people but not all, in this day an age is something people don't want to do. Stout Hearts -AK-Warhawk

  6. I hope that they do increase the clan cap. Clans with a membership of more than 30, take us at around 100 or a clan like FOG with well beyond that, can (because of the ability to field multiple teams from multiple clans with the same goal in mind) adversely impact what ever form clan wars or stronghold or what ever wargming comes up with. Having to pay for multiple 30 player clans isn't going to significantly add to the bottom line of wargaming's budget. They will make more money out of the premium shop I suspect. Even now when we at AK do a mass drop the fact that we are currently running 4 different clans of AK only means that we still put the same number of people divisioned up into random battles. Having a higher clan cap won't affect that. Same goes for clans like FOG or STW just to name two. If you have noticed you have also seen people from larger tank clans like Relic showing up in game, who coincidentally have 4 (I believe) different clans in tanks with a 100 man clan cap, and I'm sure other big clans will follow. Honestly while it was nice just to have clans to start with in warships I think we are well past the time now where the cap should have already been increased. We are also past the point of where we should be able to fly a clan tag of some sort in game. Wargaming is proving that you can fly more than one flag (think Yamamoto mission) so why couldn't we have a flag with our clan emblem? The level of participation just in the Supremacy League alone also shows that there is plenty of interest there for competitive style play. The training room is available by either MODs or by the executable released by wargaming. Why haven't they included that as an official supported game mode by now? I haven't said much over time on these issues but come on really? Wargaming's trademarked "soon" is being pushed well past the point of lunacy. Stout Hearts -AK-Warhawk
  7. @Macabe - Feel free to add Armored Knights to your list. Stout Hearts -AK-Warhawk
  8. Like the new website. Armored Knights will be returning and looking forward to starting back up the fun and detonations. Stout Hearts -AK-Warhawk
  9. From Armored Knights I just wanted to say thank you to not only Vas and Taskforce Apocalypse for the work and time they have put in to getting the Supremacy League to where it is today but also to Wargaming for their financial backing for this league and also for the refs for the time they are taking out of their gaming time to help. Without both sides working together this league wouldn't be expanding the way it is and we for one are truly thankful for all that you guys do. Stout Hearts -AK-Warhawk
  10. One request about the unit leader meeting, if the time is going to be changed (IE start earlier) from what is currently posted that an update at least be made on the Supremacy League website. Before the start of last season I got on Discord at the noted time for the unit leader meeting and found it had started 30 minutes earlier and never saw anything about the time being moved up.

  11. Once you click on the link that Vas provided, I highly recommend you download the app (it's small) and use that. I've had better luck with that and the voice comms side of discord than going through the website. Stout Hearts -AK-Warhawk
  12. Will the clan commanders and clans involved in the beta test be notified if their clan name is going to be reserved? IE who will know if they are one of the lucky ones? Stout Hearts -AK-Warhawk
  13. I love my NC. The only thing I really fear is DD's. I've even had a few games where I triple citadelled yamatos (yes they were salty). If Wargaming would have modelled her deck armor to the correct values she would be completely unstoppable at her tier. As it is now she is still a tough ship and played right can both fight from range and brawl depending on what you need to do. I just need reliable people to help keep the DD's at bay. (yes that's curses to you DD players ....of which I am one from time to time) Stout Hearts -AK-Warhawk
  14. If you are interested in working up towards those lines and want to join a clan that is willing to not only help but give you a shot when you get there come and check out Armored Knights or PM me here. Stout Hearts -AK-Warhawk
  15. Our clan is always looking for more members that want to participate in the Supremacy League. They do need, however, at least one of the ships that are used in the league with an appropriate skilled captain. Stout Hearts -AK-Warhawk
