For the lunar new year, Wargaming will release the Bajie and the Wukong. The Bajie is a premium tier 9 Izumo and the Wukong is a premium tier 8 Charles Martel. Here are my thoughts: My thoughts on Bajie: Its literally just an Izumo with better accuracy and a slightly lower reload time (both are basically negligible). Its only purpose is going to sell skins. Its a fake ship based on a fake ship (wth) Its gonna be expensive because its tier 9 Its trying to appeal to Chinese nationalism (I think). This is really stupid because 95% of Chinese people (myself included) do not care about what nation the ship is coming from. Its a Japanese ship.... Its like adding in a Bismarck that flies the Israeli flag. Suggestions: Just give the Izumo a lunar new year skin instead of making another fake ship. If your gonna give the Pan-Asians a battleship just to sell skins, why not make it the Tingyuan. It was a Chinese battleship that participated in the First Sino-Japanese War. It had 4x12 inch guns and a crap ton of secondaries just like the Mikasa. I'd rather have a REAL tier 2 Chinese battleship that isn't just another copy-paste ship. Why the Tingyuan is better than the Izumo: It's real. It's not based on a fake ship. It would be the only other tier 2 battleship and it gives the Mikasa a better matchup It has actual historic value which is why people would by the ship. It's tier 2 so its gonna be cheap. If people are just buying the ship for skins, the cheaper the better. It's turrets are mounted in a unique and cool way. A 1:1 replica of the ship still exists today, which is pretty awesome. Edit: I'm doing the Charles Mar... I mean Wukong too. My thoughts on the Wukong: It's a Charles Martel with worse consumables (wth). Its not real. Its gonna be expensive because its tier 8 Its trying to appeal to Chinese nationalism (I think). This is really stupid because 95% of Chinese people (myself included) do not care about what nation the ship is coming from. Its a French ship.... This is just weird. Suggestions: Give the Charles Martel a new years camo instead of making a fake ship.

They are somewhat original They are lower tier than the Wukong so cheaper If people are just buying the ship for skins, the cheaper the better. Conclusion: As a Chinese player, I love how WG does the lunar new year events. I think the new captains (Zhu Bajie and Sun Wukong) are going to be pretty awesome. I just dont like how they are making fake ships for the Pan-Asians just to cater to Chinese people. If your gonna do that, make it a real ship at least. Happy New Years!
Inoriyuzuri posted a topic in Clan Recruitment[NADO] is now recruiting players https://discord.gg/ewkhCAR (Date: 11/05/19) Hi, you might know us from high tier random games, you might also very well for the first time read our name here. We are North Atlantic Detonation Organization. Established 2015 winter (clan founded 2016 April), we are one of the first WOWS NA player community made up of Chinese international students & workers. Before we continue Our current members are ALL of Chinese origins. If you are one of us, I suppose you will be interested in us. Whether you are or not, please read on: We do speak English, with or without noticeable accents. We wish to facilitate international communications between Chinese players reside on NA soil and native NA players, thus promoting friendly interactions both in WOWS and potentially many other games too. It means we are now looking for active players with decent understanding of the game that look to improve their experience in the game. Our story Same as some of the earliest clans, we have formed up during the first (and so far the only) season of Team Battles. Teams created by our founding members were among top 50 in the final rankings. We subsequently participated in 2016 Supremacy League Season 2 Summer Slaughter mini-tournament and made to final match in the loser bracket during that weekend. In 2017 spring, we formed up 2 teams (one of which in conjunction with RNF) and rounded 1st & 3rd places in Fight Night tournament. History aside, we founded the community even before in-game clan is a thing, in hope to collect like-minded players to help improving the experience and quality of high tier games. Playing competitive games was our priority before WG promised us clan warfare. Most of our current members and founding members have finished grinding tech trees and are yearning for clan contents long awaited in this game. That being said, teamwork is something we value greatly, even over general skills and such. It adds a tasteful spice to our games as there’s not much grinding most of us need to do at this point. Our value and ideology We started the show as a place for highly skilled players with a set of specific requirements for community admission, but throughout the time, neutrality and civilized behavior is necessary to invite acknowledgement to us from the crowd as well. As the general population of this game shifted over time, we have come to appreciate gaming in divisions in random mode, and we welcome people who have decent skills to get along with us, roaming the high seas together. Current organization We have 3 in-game clan titles: [NADO] is our main clan. Right now we are concentrating our most active players and forming first-line teams to level up in Clan Battles rating. Capacity has increased to 40 and is again reaching limit. [NAD0] is our second-line clan. We do not differ skills/stats from former, less active and legacy members are placed here. Regardless of our organization, we aim to bring both clans up there! [N4DO] right now is serving as our retirement club/reserve for inactive members. Application Step 1: before applying: You need to NOT hide your stats for the entire period of involvement with our clan, we appreciate honesty over ALL. Total PvP battles played 2500+. Tier 8-10 PvP win rate above 55%. Have at least 3 meta Tier X ships (E.X. : Currently Henri, Stalin, Des, Zao) Capable PC hardware, network that does not throw you off the cliff. We will schedule voice interview(s) with each eligible applicant in a timely fashion, on our Discord server. We will ignore in-game application to all of our 3 clans unless contacted via Discord. You may find the link at the end of this post. Step 2: At recruitment interview, we look for qualities such as: Maturity, good enough that we don’t know you are underaged or not fit for adult content & chatters. No matter how mature we think you are, WOWS is PG13. This covers a LOT of aspects and why we wish to talk to you before admitting to our clan. Willingness and ability to adapt to divisional teamwork and/or competitive teamwork. Moral compatibility. Contact us Our Discord server is our primary platform and our ONLY official node for inter-clan communications. We are in friendly relationship with multiple clans. The server is open to public and are organized to house membership-only sections as well. If you are interested in joining us, please get in our Discord and message me. If you wish to remain independent or loyal to your current clan while making new friends with us, we respect you and kindly remind you that our server is open to public! https://discord.gg/ewkhCAR P.S. : This thread devleoped from old thread by Chair: Cabbforth
