  1. @bosco1111 lol ok big boy. you use some big words from someone who doesn't have any idea about our clan or clan battles in general
  2. Thank you for your opinion on the quality of our clan. Unfortunately the lion does not concern himself with the opinions of sheep. Have a nice day!
  3. Let's dispell some myths, shall we. My main account is LordTyphoon on the SEA server. I played in the main team of the clan REPOI, the clan that came 2nd on the SEA server (2nd on Hurricane for SEA, and 8th worldwide I think, cbf checking) in the last season of clan battles. We did not use a CV in our lineup - we used 1x Kremlin and 6x Stalingrads. Aforementioned descriptions of our tactics against CV lineups are more or less accurate. Our success relied on strong teamplay between our seven players. Our strategy therefore was not well duplicated by copycats who tried to replicate our strategy. More importantly, our success is not proof that CVs should not be removed from clan battles. We encourage WG to explore options of removing CVs from clan battles so that the elements of spontaneity and unpredictably be added back into clan battles to restore surprise and fun.

  5. Hi Everyone, I am Trollphoon and I am an experienced Warships player from Australia with 13k+ battles across all tiers (on the SEA server). My SEA IGN is LordTyphoon. My statistics are here: https://asia.wows-numbers.com/player/2012608192,LordTyphoon/ The Destroyer (DD) is the most poorly understood class of ship in the game. They are more situational and more difficult to play than any other class (yes, carriers included), and I am happy to run tutorials on my stream to give an intro to those who want to learn how to play them better. Language will be English, and I am based in Sydney so my time zone is UTC +10. Please join my Discord channel below where there will be further information. Cheers, and see you on the high seas.

  6. Hi everyone, I actually play on the Asia server as LordTyphoon, this is my NA alt that I don't play anymore, but just wanted to pick everyone's brain here. After four years in this game, frustration is starting to set in. I started playing warships with a Storm League clan, and now I have spent a few years with Typhoon and Hurricane League clans. Originally, I thought that playing with better players will improve my skills, but this has not happened. From all these years in the game, I have observed that clans have the following ways of selecting players: - Statistics-based recruiting: Having good statistics from random battles. Generally, a solo win rate of 60%+ and a PR of 2300+ in all ship class is required for this to work. - Reputation-based recruiting: From being a well-known unicum and having played with clan leaders of other well-known clans, it is very easy to obtain offers from various recruiters - Specialist-based recruiting: As the name suggests, being a top 1% player in a ship class. Generally requires a 65%+ solo win rate and a PR of 2500+ in that class. Since I have not been able to meet any of these requirements, I feel that I have been unofficially labelled as 'A Bravo Team Player', and therefore have been passed over during selection to play in Alpha teams in higher leagues. It is now a vicious cycle as: - My statistics are now too tedious to fix since I have over 13k random battles; - My reputation is screwed as I am a well known 'Bravo team player' - I feel my skills in each ship class has reached a peak, and my win rates are no longer getting higher I have never been approached to join any top clan before, and have always had to go through lengthy recruitment processes to prove my (apparently insufficient) skills toget in. Has anyone else 'hit this wall' before, and does anyone have any advice? I am really on the fence here and I am starting to think that it might be best to stop thinking about this, hang up the boots and not play any competitive anymore.

    Over Powered Ships

    I would suggest watching YouTube videos from Noster - he is one of the best World of Warship players around and he does guides on all the shops in the game. He'll really help you out. https://www.youtube.com/user/MrNotser

    Most DD Players are BAD

    My Yamato is my favourite ship, so I play it a lot in random battles. I like being the most important ship in the game, and like in history, the role of all the destroyers and cruisers around me is to support me and my big guns. But what I find is that I can't achieve my average damage per game of 50,000 because the destroyers on my team cannot keep the enemy spotted! They keep dying! They always get killed by the Worcesters and the Minotaurs because they could not spot them for long enough (around 10 minutes) so that i can hit them with a shell! I tell my DDs - my ship can shoot from 24km, so I make use of all that range. Keep those enemies spotted and I will hit them with impunity. We are pretty much invincible if I shoot from far away - if they can't kill me, the enemy can never win. The job of the DD is to spot enemies - why can't these DDs just be smart and spot the Worcesters and MInotaurs without being counter detected? A bit stupid really. None of them can do their job properly. I will easily become the best destroyer if I played, but I don't play though - it is too far below my skill level. Skillful players like me only play battleships. Everyone knows that the battleship must keep as much of its health as possible because it needs to be the last ship left in the game to win the game. A useless battleship is a dead battleship...the rest of the team should be dedicated to keeping me alive to I can hit the game-winning shots. So please explain to me - why are DD players always so terrible?
  12. When the enemy DD knows exactly when and where i will smoke up and times his torps so that the moemnt I smoke up in that very spot, his torps arrive and there is no escape. Some players can do that every single time.

  14. I already blacked, it was great. Them torpedoes slid effortlessly over and over again into the Queen Elizabeth (enemy faildiv)

    Master List of Podcast Episodes

    Thanks guys, love your podcasts as usual. I'm from a competitive clan in SEA, we don't really get too much drama (not that I'm aware of, anyway), other than the occasional aim bot accusation when someone makes a lucky shot. What kind of drama are we talking about on? Where can I find some examples? Please PM if more appropriate.
