    In game recruiting is NOT "Misbehaving in chat"

    The majority of our clan members was recruited in game. I have done what you said but not often. My approach is to reach out in private message and ask if a non clan player would be interested in joining a clan. Most of the time there is no reply so I don’t message anymore. Sometimes it is a simple “no thank you” which is fine I just say I understand have a good day. Sometimes it is yes and we go from there. Some of our recruits have come from posts they have posted looking for a clan here in the forum. Sometimes from the WG Discord page. Even Reddit.

    Give Khab 12 km radar

    A little over a year or so ago I proposed “Sonar for the Scharnhorst”. I had a pretty good idea the answer was going to be no. It was rejected. Fast forward to a couple months ago the Odin appeared in ST and then released into the game. It’s a super Scharnhorst at T8 with, SoNaR! I doubt what I had suggested was taken seriously but, never know if a submission is made in earnest and respectfully. With a little feasibility, who knows. May plant a seed. I also submitted a thread “Steering for the Gearing”. It to was rejected but, it did recently receive a little love to the defensive fire AA build . Never know what a request may bring forth fruit.

    How does someone with 35% WR end up in rank 7?

    I can't rank out. I just shoot for R10 in regular rank to the the discount flag. I mount it on all my ships I like playing in random. That plus the steel I can get up to that point. Yes Rank is salt personified. My skin grew thick and I laugh it off, ignore, or what ever

    Interesting. I would guess they just had the free time to spam games at the beginning and was carried to the finish line with good teams. I don't mean that as a personal attack or slur against them. Just it is what it is.

    How does someone with 35% WR end up in rank 7?

    In random I’m average, a 50%’er. In division and solo. Not the best, not the worst. In regular rank I’m low 40% average. I realize rank is filled with people from random. Regular rank does attract more skilled players because it is more competitive than random. However after the first wave most skilled have worked through and it is the good and average that are left. That’s when the “stuck in the mud” effect happens. I’m average, no magical carry powers which is needed most matches at that point. If I’m in matches with equally skilled players, In smaller match settings I do worse. It’s because one loss is a greater burden on the team to carry. The majority of the matches at that point it is the team I am on will be for some reason the first team to lose one or two ships. No carry ability, no win. I tried a couple seasons to just spam through. Rinse and repeat, reason being surely the team I was on would only lose the first ship 50% of the time. Not the case though. Whether I played 80 games or pushed and played 200+. The result was the same. Roughly rank 10 with a slightly above 40% wr for that season of ranked. I know there are always exceptions to the rules. It is probably people who had the free time and was carried in the beginning with a wave of skilled players. Are the people you are referring to with the 40% wr’s carrying that average in ranked or random? There was a comment made about a week ago about ranked and ranking out by a member of one of the hyper competitive clans that said. You can rank out unless your at the 40% wr. I agree with him.

    Make ranked 1 vs 1

    True, especially with the advent of a little steel in randoms. But people who are not in a clan, can’t rank out in regular ranked, or whose working hours or geographical location time zone conflicts will get little to no steel. I can’t rank out in regular ranked as well. My work hours prevents me from playing CB. In short, I don’t think regular ranked will ever be 1 vs 1. That was a one off ranked sprint data gathering season event

    Too many would rank out and water it down to like ranked sprint. Steel is a valuable commodity
