  1. Tier 7 is the new Tier 8

    played a couple tier 7 games, both bottom tier, is tier 7 the new tier 8?
  2. Granted CVs are a dying class in the upper tiers and I have been more then vocal advocate for change in the class. After a recent game in the US DM, I can not express my frustration to way people despise the current balance of CV to surface game interaction. Here are the carnage in the pics. Man after this game I hope that Midway driver took a shower sheesh. Again I am not mad at the guy, he did what ever WOWS allows him to do. Wiping out close to 42k in one pass is not only brutal but I think unrealistic even for arcade standards of WOWS. But here is my evidence to the Developers to get a kick laugh at untill the CV rework is done. Later everyone EDIT* We lost the game.
  3. Seattle: Why Bother?

    I'm puzzled, so maybe someone can help me out. Why give a Tier IX USN CL such woefully inferior main guns as compared to almost every other ship of the same tier? The only other ship with worse artillery is the Neptune, but it is offset with a decent range, which the Seattle doesn't have. Yeah, DPM...I get it; but it's not much better than the Cleveland. What am I missing?
  4. To WG: Please Stop doing this all the time

    Please stop putting me in games above my tier 90% of the time..On days or times when a few thousand people our on I do understand the need but even when fifteen thousand people our on I am still being put in games above my tier..I like playing tier 5,6,7 because I think its the sweet spots for fun battles..I should not be punished for that..First I do not mind playing above my tier even 50% of the time or at this point 70% of the time. I also have no issue losing a game..With that being said It is bad sportsmanship to continue to put me in games 2 tiers above my ship class and expect me to compete on the same level.That is not fair to anyone to be in that situation all the time..I am a diplomatic person and I accept the challenge of being above my tier and also the game play on those maps but it becomes frustrating after a while and in fact I tend to just get off the game if it continues to happen in to many games..No one including the WG staff would like the prospect of taking a tugboat and a hand cannon to the battle of Jutland every day.. In closing I pose this question? Why over the past six months has there been a steady increase in the percentage of games I am being put above my tier..Like I said its sitting around 90% at this point while not being a stat junky my W/L and averages on everything has stagnated because of this.I used to be put above my tier in around 50% of my games in the past and that was acceptable..Please explain to me why this has increased so much.. I really like this game so I do sometimes buy ships and doubloons to support a fun game..I hope you can fix this issue in the future as it is becoming a common complaint in chat and very frustrating for me. Thank you timinindiana =V=
  5. Debating staying at lower tiers for now or going up.
  6. T VII with V

    wth is that???? I know that sometime you can be T V with VI, but VII?????? A Colorado shooted on me 1 time and i losed 3/4 of my PV???? Is it a bug or this is the game?
  7. USS Ranger should be REPLACED !!!!

    The USS Ranger was definitely put into the game for very good reasons, but she is frankly UGLY and I think we should get a little sexier ship in the gameplay that few people have seen or heard of before!! Enter, USS Wasp: the forgotten warrior !!!!!!!! USS Wasp (CV-7) USS Wasp CV-7 was a United States Navy aircraft carrier commissioned in 1940 and lost in action in 1942. She was the eighth ship named USS Wasp, and the sole ship of a class built to use up the remaining tonnage allowed to the U.S. for aircraft carriers under the treaties of the time. As a reduced-size version of the Yorktown-class aircraft carrier hull, Wasp was more vulnerable than other United States aircraft carriers available at the opening of hostilities. Wasp was initially employed in the Atlantic campaign, where Axis naval forces were perceived as less capable of inflicting decisive damage. After supporting the occupation of Iceland in 1941, Wasp joined the British Home Fleet in April 1942 and twice ferried British fighter aircraft to Malta. Wasp was then transferred to the Pacific in June 1942 to replace losses at the battles of Coral Sea and Midway. After supporting the invasion of Guadalcanal, Wasp was sunk by the Japanese submarine I-19 on 15 September 1942. Wasp is just much sexier, has same displacement, same speed, same flight group size, same AA strength, and can be configured in the matchmaking system to perform just like Ranger. I think this would be a good change for the game and give players something new to play with!!! Any thoughts from my fellow wargamers???
  8. So after grinding the Wyoming all day just to get the New York, I look down the Battleship branch of the USN tech tree, and I notice that as you get to the next tier, the next tier unlock requirement is double for the xp requirement than the previous tier unlock. So I was wondering, you upgrade to the next tier, does the next tier receive more xp? I realize that how much xp depends on how you do in the game. But let's just say you sunk 2 ships, assisted in a capture and hit 3 citadels as a New York and as a New Mexico, would you receive more xp as a New Mexico over a New York for doing the same thing, but as a higher tier?
  9. A Caledon adventure... of doom!

    I'm pretty sure I got lucky but this is my greatest match in the Caledon so far. 20180314_233432_PBSC103-Caledon_13_OC_new_dawn.wowsreplay
  10. Why is this not possible. You can earn higher tier ships through special events but then you can only research up the tiers from there. For instance I earned the Tier 6 La Gallissonniere in some event and can research higher tier ships from there. But if I want Tier 1 through 5 I have to start with the T1 Bougainville. WG needs to enable you to research down tier as well. Just my thoughts.
  11. I have returned after not playing for while and had a game in the tier 2 pan-asia destroyer. How I survived I have no idea. The replay is the attachment. BTW I have gotten the tier 4 Japanese premium battleship. Was there an event? 20180114_172044_PZSD102-Long-Jiang_33_new_tierra.wowsreplay
  12. Wargaming if your gonna match us up with randoms with 2 tier difference, why not let us create divisions with more than 2 tier difference ? Whats the point of matching us up with Iowa class when we go with T7 ships not to mention the poor people with T5 ships. Why do you not let us do what you guys are doing and forcing us into impossible fights where u get one shoted by the some of the biggest guns in this game ? Fix it
  13. I believe their should only be a 1 tier differential in match maker. I personally would rather wait another minute then get tier 10 with my tier 8! What say you?
  14. How to use Missouri??

    How to play Missouri? Im a yamato player so usa bb still kinda new, but I grind until tier 5 of the usn bb tree.
  15. Need advice for next tier X

    (mods please move this discussion if it's i the wrong location) hey guys, I had a nagging question on my mind, it's which tier X dd should I go after next, what has a good amount of fun and strategy to the ship, i just completed my gearing and I'm loving it, but as a dd player I need more variance and gameplay style so I'm after another tier X. so my question being this, i have the -Kiev, -akasuki and a tier II German dd, should i go for the dual Russian line of khab/grozovoi? or try and chip away at the shimakaze? id also like to ask for a little information as to what you guys think about the German did line, what will happen once I get to tier 6/7/8? How do they play? is hydro a game changer? Or just a tool to no end?
  16. I seem to recall that last ranked seacon used tier VII ships and, of course, this one use tier VI ships. What other tiers have been used in ranked and which one do you think might be used in the future? The reason that I'm asking is that I'm working my way up some ship lines and don't want to sell ships that I might have use for down the road. I, however, have limited dock space so I can't keep everything and selling an unused ship really helps pay for the next one.
  17. Hello everyone! I decided to create this poll as I couldn't find any new polls with all of the new lines. Have fun voting!!! Feel free to post comments below :)

  19. A big concern we hear a lot about is people complaining about the +/- 2 tier matchmaking system. People tend to get really frustrated when they are the low man on the totem pole, tier wise. They also tend to get very excited when they are top tier. This seems like a very solvable problem to me. What if they tweaked the XP and silver awards to be more heavily weighted by tier? For example: Lowest tier +30% XP/silver Upper tier -30% XP/silver Or, instead of having a penalty on the upper tier, why not just make it a bonus for lower tiers? +10% XP/Silver for being 1 tier below max. +25% XP/Silver for being 2 tiers below max. We could make the bonuses apply to both sides, or we could make it only apply to the winning side. Also, if you queue with a division, you do not get any bonus at all, because...to heck with those MM breaking jerks! In all seriousness, I really think that being a lower tiered ship in a higher tier battle should be seen as an opportunity to get excited about. Not something people dread. Maybe lower tier ships get a reduction in repair/servicing costs for that match. What would it take for you to get excited about being under-tiered in a match?
  20. here is a picture of a screen that you can choose to wait longer for a game of your tier. or 1 above or below tier. ... let me know what ya think. I know we have all been up tiered and it sucks. this could help.
  21. I am currently at Tier 6 - La Galissonnière. I have played the tier 5 Émile Bertin and it was great. Its AA were very good. But I feel the tier 6 is a bit inferior. Should I go up the tech tree (Tier 7,8,9,10)? Is it worth the grind?
  22. Looking for Clan: CmdDread

    Looking for a clan. I'm not terrible but I'm getting better. I haven't played in about 6 months because my computer took a dump...built a new computer and I'm back in action! I work a 12 on 12 off shift, 4 days on 4 days off, 3 days on 3 days off. Eastern time zone. https://worldofwarships.com/en/community/accounts/1005470129-CmdDread/!/pvp/overview/
  23. I have these ships (All under Tier 1 to 4) Japan - Umikaze, Chikuma, Wakatake, Tenryu, Kawachi, Isokaze, Kuma USA - Sampson, St. Louis, S. Carolina, Wyoming, Langley USSR - Novik, Bogatyr Germany - Hermelin, V-25, Dresden, Kolberg, Nassau, Karlsruhe UK - Black Swan, Wemouth, Caledon France - Friant, Duguay-Trouin As I am gaining XPs to go up, I am not sure which country's tech tree should I follow. I have heard about Yamato but not much familiar with most of the high tier ships. Which ones should I sell immediately and which ones do I need to buy at present (T-1 to 4)?? I just don't want to waste a slot for a bad ship. Currently I feel Kolberg and Kawachi are worst. Also I am not good at CV. Should I sell Langley? Please suggest!! Also suggest best ships in each tier and in each class of each country if possible as of 2017.
  24. Best/Worst T6 BBs

    As the question implies, what do you think is the best/worst T6 battleship, now with 7 choices to choose from. Personally, the Arizona just edges the Dunkerque for best. Worst, for me, Bayern. I know a lot of people love the German BB line, but at this tier, for me, last. (Please try and choose ships you've actually played, not hearsay about another ship.)
  25. With the most recent changes to matchmaking, tier 7 has been an absolute powerhouse, with tier 5 being left largely forlorn. But that begs the question, did it effect tier 4? I believe it did. According to Warships.today, Tier 4 seems to be showing a startling climb in win rate across the board. I decided to take the win rates of the lowest performing eight ships at tier 4 and compare their 2 week rates with their stats overall. The following ships were added to the average (mean): Myogi, Langley, Phoenix, Karlsruhe, Wyoming, Izylaslav, Clemson, Kuma, (I did not include Danae because she is relatively new.) Average (mean) in win rate overall: 48.885% Average (mean) win rate for the past 2 weeks (1/27/2017) : 51.793% (Remember, these numbers come from the 8 lowest performing ships) That is a 2.908% increase in win rate overall. It's safe to assume that tier 4 is very strong in the current meta game.
