    Tromp Depth Charges

    Just because DD's aren't the best submarine killers doesn't mean one should be definitively worse than all of the rest. Not saying make it good, just on par with the rest of the Tier X Destroyers.

    Tromp Depth Charges

    Love the Tromp, it's a great boat and it's fun getting to learn how to use the Netherlands bombing mechanic. But... if I had to complain about one thing... it's the depth charges. What the hell went wrong here? They are low alpha damage around 2k. Other DD's in the tier with a 2k alpha drop 12-16 charges while the Tromp drops only 6. The DD's that drop so few charges, 6-8, all have around 5k alpha damage. I just dropped 16 depth charges on a U-2501 and only did 14k damage and did not kill it. What??? This needs some love, especially with a new Tier X German sub in testing.

    How exactly can a Henri IV Citadel a Yamato at any range?

    Yamato takes the term "bow on tanking" to the extreme. If you point your nose directly at the enemy, and I literally mean directly, it's not going to citadel jack. But if you give it enough room to hit your fat cheek you're going to take a citadel more often than anything else. The speed of the Henri and its reload consumable will deal with you quickly if you let it.

    In the end, does it really even matter?

    Lopsided Scores: What's up?

    Imbalances in MM have existed for a lot longer than a month. These types of scores have been active for a while and a variety of reasons can be thrown out as to why. In the end, WG is going to have to do some serious work to address the issues and it will be unlikely that it happens any time soon.

    Tier classifcations

    If you're talking about how it is recorded on your profile, it's as whatever tier ship you're in. So if you're playing in a Tier 8 your Tier 8 battle count goes up, regardless of what type of matchmaking you're thrown into.

    Please help me Identify this ship

    My good sir, I found it. It is the Battlecruiser HMS Renown before its refit. In fact it has the very same photo on the Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Renown_(1916)

    Clan Battles Match Making

    Morals don't really have anything to do with it. Two of those players were from the Alpha rating. The rest are just trying to get their steel like everyone else is. If we ran our entire full Alpha lineup in bravo just for the luls then you can throw words. And the best part is, some top clans are doing just that. These guys ran into our bravo rating and got mad because our clan tags are purple from the alpha rating. I'm sorry their promo series didn't go well but in the end, we were only one of their three losses. There is still time left to play and I'm sure they will be able to attempt it again.

    Clan Battles Match Making

    As the others have already said, this is our Bravo rating. There are some players who play Alpha (specifically two) but I can also assure you that the atmosphere is far different. The surest way to tell is to see how many points you won/lost. If you only lose single digit points it's the Alpha rating. If you lost normal points as compared to teams in your rating then it was their Bravo team. This is applicable to all of the higher rated teams that run two teams. Our Bravo runs for steel. We have roughly 50 members that are trying to get their missions done. There isn't a major difference between this and having two clans like the previous seasons. Except now players can jump back and forth on a whim while before there was a 3-day cooldown to jump between clans. Kind of poor planning from WG but it was the pilot season of this new feature so I am sure there will be changes made.

    "Unsporting" Activity

    I'm guessing you didn't go out with "ctrl+shift+esc" and instead went back to port. If you have a UI issue just force close the program in the future with the windows task manager. As for "unsporting", it's a pretty broad term man. Unsporting conduct can be seen as someone ramming you out of smoke or quitting the game and leaving a dead ship handicap. Three games aren't anything though. You'll forget about it in no time.

    Do you feel this game is P2W?

    This is an extreme bias though. The people that have earned these ships have hit Rank 1 multiple times. They know what they're doing and therefore their random battle stats are going to be extremely inflated. If these ships were released to the entire public you would see those stats plummet to a more normal atmosphere.

    Squad transfers and league missions for CB

    Squad transfers and league missions for CB

    Typically we move up to new leagues before the 30 games are completed. Most of the time we start getting our completions in Typhoon 2. APOC currently has two Hurricane clans and it was like that in both. Typhoon is faster for clans with competitive experience than it is for other clans that are still Typhoon quality in the end. All in all, these 3 sentences seem to impact a LOT of rewards. This needs to be re-written.

    Squad transfers and league missions for CB

    That's a good point too. I didn't think of that when I read it. This really needs to be clarified by WG before CB starts.
  15. I've read the patch notes about the new Clan Battles settings on the site, but the news portion on the in-game client adds more depth to the notes. One specific part of the news post was really confusing in how it was written and I was hoping to get a WG employee to clear this up. Here it is: Personal achievements the players can earn in Clan Battles are given on the basis of the results of battles played for one of the ratings. Combat missions in the Clan Battles season can be completed in battles played for any of the ratings. Battles will be counted for the combat mission’s progress only if the player joined them in the specified League. If while completing the combat mission, the player changes to the other rating that is in a different League where this combat mission is not available, battles played in this League will not be counted. What this sounds like is a rule to deter people from squad/clan hopping. But it's not very clear in how this will be counted. Here is how I am interpreting it. "Squad A reaches Typhoon League while Squad B reaches Storm League. The player from Squad B transfers to Squad A. Wins in Typhoon count only towards this players Typhoon specific mission, and not to the Squall/Gale/Storm missions." But what about players that have always been in Squad A? Do those players need to play in at least one battle per league? Does this battle need to be a win to proc the mission completion? All in all, this is not clearly written at all and could greatly affect the rewards players receive for completing their Clan Battles missions as they had the past two seasons.
