  1. The Armada Dominion Armada de Britannia & Armada de Germania Established 2016 Why should I join Armada? We strive to improve, division, communicate and to dominate. We are just a group of guys and gals who are trying to have a good time with fellow members. If you have been annoyed of snotty or arrogance of some that pride themselves on being top in their stats, you won’t find that kind of attitude here. We strive to achieve excellence in our stats, however, we are not going to let it get to our heads and create a toxic atmosphere on/off the battlefield. We will keep our composure and obliterate our opponents, respectfully. We are anime friendly. Plus you get a neat forum signature! ARMDA (Semi-Competitive) Membership Requirements - Have a desire to compete and the availability to do so. - Tier 7 non premium being the minimum tier ship you have unlocked. - Discord Account with minimum ability to listen to communications by a speaker, earbuds, headset, etc. - We have no standing in-game stat requirements for any of our in-game clans or any clan activities. ARMDG (Strict-Casual) Membership Requirements - Discord Account with minimum ability to listen to communications by a speaker, earbuds, headset, etc. - We have no standing in-game stat requirements for any of our in-game clans or any clan activities. Process in joining the community: Join Armada Discord, contact the leadership team, be interviewed (about 5 minutes) and be told by Interviewer the next steps. Armada Member Expectations - Discord - We are a Discord clan. Aside from requiring every clan member to join discord, we expect activity from each member. Specifically, checking in on clan announcements, participating in discussions, utilizing voice or text communications and requesting for or finding division mates. - The game account you join us with is your primary account you have a commitment to, even if you have an account on a different server region. - We expect MATURITY in our members on/off the battlefield. - We expect INTEGRITY, HONESTY, and LOYALTY to our members. - Rule of Inactivity: A member who is inactive for 3 weeks (21 days) without notifying the Commander or a Deputy prior, will result in being discharged. To rejoin, you will need to communicate with officers. Armada Expansion - The ARMDA community is looking to expand into different PC games other than the Wargaming Games, having a foothold in a variety of games to bring out our member's skills and have even more fun together. So far, we have a solid group in the space game "Elite Dangerous," Join our discord for some funny sometimes hazardous wingmates for Elite Dangerous! Join our Discord Server ( https://discord.gg/xqk3F4Z ) and contact the leadership (aka Praetorian Guard) or a member of our Recruiter's Guild if you are interested!
  2. I would like to pose a challenge to everyone in the gaming community. Attempt to be more helpful to your fellow players, to forgive and forget, work WITH not against and try to make everyone's experience better. Ignore your stats, PLAY the GAME. If you're a good player, try to help instead of shaming players that are still learning. If you're going to post suggestions or questions in the forums, try to articulate what you want or are trying to explain. Take a breath and slow down prior to posting if you're angry, and move forward. Is this a difficult challenge? Yes, it definitely is... especially for my loud mouth. But I think I have gotten significantly better than I used to be, especially considering my ole salty Sailor background... I know for me, I am making a conscious effort starting today! Good luck and see out on the sea. (Sea what I did there?)
  3. [BUNNY] White & Fluffy is looking to invite you to our clan! We may not look like fearsome, savage warriors with our fluffy tails, floppy ears, round and adorable eyes, warm heart filled with love and…. joy… okay, we’re not exactly inspiring fear. But it turns out you don’t need to look menacing when even Tim the Enchanter fears your name! What, still not feeling it? Fine, here’s some video from one of our last clan battles. [BUNNY] RabbitOfCaebannog really “tears” into them! Just don’t watch until the end, [ARTHUR] brought an illegal ship to the match. We’re interested in adopting some new members into the clan and you might just be the perfect fit! [BUNNY] is currently a semi-competitive clan looking to add some new blood into the mix. We will consider all applications; however, space in the clan is unfortunately limited until more slaves keel over from exhaustion. As such, captains with an above-average skill level and higher are strongly preferred. Last Clan Wars season we managed to make it to Typhoon 3 by sacrificing a few players to the old gods (don’t worry, we paid out life insurance to their families) and we hope to go above and beyond in future seasons! Our clan is highly diverse! While we all share a mutual love acceptance tolerance psychological enslavement to WoWs, many clan members have other interests as well! Whether you’re interested in competitive WoWs, anime, other games, becoming an immortal deity bent on galactic conquest, or just having fun with friends, [BUNNY] may be the clan for you! While we can’t guarantee that we’ll be the best fit for your needs, we strive to maintain a positive atmosphere in which both new captains and experienced veterans can feel welcome and grow as players. Or at the very least the delusion that escape is possible will be sustained so that we don’t all collapse into a ball of quivering fluffle. Some General Acceptance Requirements Please have at least 2 Tier 10 combat ready ships for Clan Wars (preferably in at least two different ship types) Have a minimum of 2,000 battles played in Random Battles (or 100,000 Co-Op Battles if you hate yourself that much) Have a win rate at or above 52% in Random Battles Have access to and be active on Discord to stay up-to-date with clan communications information and dank memes Denounce the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch as a WMD and pledge your undying effort to eradicated it from reality Own a working microphone for communication during clan activities or the ability to project your thoughts across time and space into our minds Be a mature and respectful individual – you will always have the right to your own opinion, but that right does not allow you to be disrespectful or abusive Of course, what would a clan be without the juicy economic rewards you’ll get when you join! In our naval base our Shipbuilding Yard, Dry Dock, Coal Port, Research Center, Design Bureau, Academy, and Officer’s Club are fully constructed! We haven’t begun work on our Steel Port, but that’s because we haven’t abducted recruited you yet to help amass oil to fund our burgeoning despotic regime! In short, joining will earn you oodles and oodles of extra sweet rewards every time you play the game! Moreover, we host competitions and giveaways on our Discord server from time to time! If you’ve got the skills/luck to win or the money to pay a hitman to eliminate your competition you might just walk away with some sweet new ships and games! If you’re still questioning our skill on the battlefield, or this recruitment post makes you think 95% of us are on some form of drugs and should thus be avoided like the plague, here’s an example of us failing miserably! So, what are you waiting for! Join the [BUNNY] Cult now! To apply please contact me (Nukes, your new supreme leader and new living god) via Discord: one4nukes#0521 Looking for a casual clan? Check out: https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/202435-the-usagi-cult-is-looking-for-adorable-new-slaves-usagi-recruitment/ Here, have a present for reading through this recruitment post: QRCho3WjebGlWjDcKBo38B58waqmN_Z0Y-tc7FZX4Fc.mp4
  4. [USAGI] Usagi, 2nd Fluffle of the Bunny Fleet is looking to invite you into our clan! There’s a phrase that we like to tell to people seeking advice: “The weak only know of their failures. The strong only highlight their successes. It takes a truly wise person to know where they are weak and where they are strong and admit to all.” [USAGI] may not look like a strong clan by any metric (unless you determine strength by the number of slaves we keep in the mines, in which case we are doing very, very well!), however, we do not endeavor to project such an image! As a subordinate clan to [BUNNY] (and relatively more casual), we desire to invite those commanders who may not quite reach the higher standards of our dominate, competitive clan, in either experience, statistics, the quality of their organs on the resale market, or even the number of ships they own. Do you have the desire to learn and grow under the enslavement tutelage of a stupendously mediocre and degenerate competitive clan that wants to steal your soul? Or do you just want to join a vibrant and active WoWs community to have fun playing with pew-pew botes, posting memes, and complaining about the declining quality of humanity whilst secretly plotting Armageddon? Then [USAGI] may be the perfect cult clan for you! Our clan is highly diverse! While we all share a mutual love acceptance tolerance psychological enslavement to WoWs, many clan members have other interests as well! Whether you’re interested in competitive WoWs, anime, other games, becoming an immortal deity bent on galactic conquest, or just having fun with friends, [USAGI] may be the clan for you! While we can’t guarantee that we’ll be the best fit for your needs, we strive to maintain a positive atmosphere in which both new captains and experienced veterans can feel welcome and grow as players. Or at the very least the delusion that escape is possible will be sustained so that we don’t all collapse into a ball of quivering fluffle. Some General Acceptance Requirements Have a minimum of 500 battles played in Random Battles (or 100,000 Co-Op Battles if you hate yourself that much) Denounce the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch as a WMD and pledge your undying effort to eradicated it from reality Have access to and be active on Discord to stay up-to-date with clan communications information and dank memes Be a mature and respectful individual – you will always have the right to your own opinion, but that right does not allow you to be disrespectful or abusive …and those are literally the only requirements! Our standards are so low that even the most degenerate weeb or brain-dead sack of peeled potatoes can join! Please note that these requirements are not set in stone: we make an effort to “interview” (play a few battles with) each person who applies to set a base line for how they act and interact with others and so we can copy their brain wavelengths for, er, “future projects”. We also highly recommend that you have access to a working microphone (or have the ability to project your thoughts across time and space directly into our minds) for better communication so we can secretly send subliminal messages into your mind when we so chose. All members of [USAGI] have access to the main [BUNNY] discord and community, with their own special tag! Equivalently, all [USAGI] members have the same rights (and rules) as all [BUNNY] members. Upward movement is determined again on a case-by-case basis: if we see improvement in your gameplay/communication or you manage to take control over the minds of one or more of our officers, then there is opportunity for further advancement if you so choose! So, what are you waiting for! Join the [USAGI] cult now! To apply please contact me (Nukes, your new supreme leader and new living god) via Discord: one4nukes#0521 Looking for a more competitive clan? Check out: https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/190601-the-bunny-cult-is-looking-to-adopt-your-soul-bunny-recruitment/
  5. Sun Tzu Warriors [STW] is now recruiting for Clan Battles! Who we are: [STW] has enjoyed competitive play since the early days of Supremacy league, rising to gold level play earning the respect of our peers. Season 1 of Clan battles we managed to finish 4th overall on the ladder and since that time we have grown into one of the largest ships communities in North America. Like many clans, we have experienced player turnover due to game changes and other issues. We have seen the fall of the 155 Mogami, (still salty about losing the old AFT) to the rise of extreme Russian Bias (who gives a cruiser 305 MM guns with 950 M/S shell velocity and 2.65 sigma). STW’s Claim to fame has always been its diversity in its community. On any given night you can enjoy a relaxed game with friends talking ships, boozing it up and crashing into islands or jumping into one of our many division channels for organized high level play. STW has several types of fleets. Casual fleets consisting of ranked, random and scenario play and Battle fleets consisting of competitive play. [STW]-Known internally as “STW Prime”, is an invitation only Battle Fleet. STW members are held to the highest level of skill, commitment and attitude. They are not only responsible to spearhead STW as high on the leaderboards as possible but also serve as teachers and mentors to our membership. [STW-D/N]-These are our intermediate Battle Fleets. These members understand the importance of specific roles on a team and are always working to improve their skills through training competitive play. Any STW members with a desire to play clan battles can request a position in these fleets. [STW-M/I/P]- A portion of our community is less interested in competitive play and more interested in the comradery found here in STW. While most play ships they also develop friendships that transcends World of Warships. These are our Non - Battle Fleets. What we are currently looking for: While we are always interested in recruiting new members this recruitment window is directed at players for our STW Prime Battle Fleet. If you have found yourself in an environment that you do not enjoy and wish to be part of something better please reach out to us. Whether you wish to devote your time to fighting alongside our best or helping us teach and train others we have a place for you. We require you are 18+ years old.. Drama will not be tolerated. When it comes to our invitation fleets we use a “per player evaluation” that comes from three factors. Skill, Commitment and Attitude. I appreciate you taking the time to read through this post and would love to talk to you more about STW. If you have any interest in joining or learning more about us please respond below or feel free to message me on Discord (K_Bomb#7795) Respectfully, [STW]K_Bomb Deputy Fleet Commander https://www.suntzuwarriors.com/

  9. Now, a few disclaimers. First, I AM ROYALLY TERRIBLE at Battleship play, but I got Frenchflakes to redeem for coal, so necessary evil, yadaydaya. Secondly, I'm Aware toxicity I'd an unfortunately accepted part of the internet, even I dabble in it a bit, much to my chagrin. Third, there is a difference between Advice and Armchair Admiraling, people are innocent until proven guilty. Lastly, no screenshots will be used to notify people of what match and who was involved in this kerfuffle. NOW LET'S BEGIN! I was queueing in the Arizona with my Lil Bro, he was in his Aigle, it was around when the match was starting his router started to die. He tried moving a bit, his router died, his destroyer Notsered, and he was unable to reconnect to the internet, the team was blasting him on Team AND All chat verbally to go spot and contest the cap (spoilers, a Vaquelin, Leander, 2 Fubuki and a Lyon were there with a Fuso approaching) and i explained to them his internet broke down, in the midst of them screaming at me for explaining this, I fired an HE salvo I had loaded at the Vaquelin, they started getting all REEEEEEEE mode and screamed out in all chat (3 of my teammates, out of a team of 12, not counting me and my now disconnected brother, cripes man) that a Battleship not only had the gall to load AP, but fired at a Broadsiding French DD instead of the 2 Invisible DDs, the invisible Leander in the smoke, and the two bow tanking BBs at mid-long range. Riiight. I switched to AP as the Fuso got greedy but only managed about half of his health to punish his broadside. Then everybody was screaming at me when I fired at the Vaquelin again because I had no targets due to islands....riiiiiiight, I can't just loop a shell over an island to a Leander 6km away...then when I did had a chance to hit the Leander, managed to AP shatter off his broadside, then they yelled at me again, thinking I shot at a *Destroyer*. You get the gist, it was a series of yelling, telling me who to shoot. Even though I never had a shot at hitting whatever they told me to fire at because of cover, not concealment, cover. And these people were a lightning storm, screaming at out Destroyers, our Carrier, me, the still disconnected Aigle....so much so the enemy team thought I was actually stupid due to all the All chat screaming. And they joined in. For reference, I didn't let the toxicity get to me, that's sadly normal, and I've dealt with worse in CSGO, the problem is the Armchair Admiraling, as when our Spee noticed I blocked him, he turned his torps on me and fired them at me at a range of 2km, rather than turning to stop being broadside on and use those torps on the Lyon, unfortunately, the Lyon killed me before the torps from the Allied Spee did, because I didn't listen to him Armchairing me with bad orders, because it wasn't advice, it was ordering me to do the impossible. And that's what got under my skin, people ordering me to do things that physically weren't possible and saying it was, there was no room for explaining to them they are wrong because they are too trapped in their own echo chamber to be reasoned with, fortunately, I had some sympathy from an enemy DD player who actually read the map, no, it wasn't the Vaquelin, he hated me for actually doing damage to his precious EA boat. Aaaaaand that concludes my rant. And my play session for the day. All in all, it was only one of 2 bad matches today, first in the Bad Zeppelin, second in the Arizona.

    WoWS dying?

    Recently i came across a few videos stating that WoWs is slowly dying due to complaints from the community demanding that the game has more improvements and such, so i'm investigating the reason behind this problem, since after 2015 videos for WoWS have slowly been declining in popularity and views, and that it has become irreverent now and a lost game in history, since then less and less people are coming to WOWS *Just a opinion* so is this downfall of wargaming's *ONLY* good game is caused by the people in the community? leave your comments below!
  13. So, ?I have enough doubloons to get a premium ship. I greatly enjoyed the Warspite and i have the duke of york, and several other premium BB that I enjoy. Should i get the HMS hood while it's on sale? EDIT: I have decided against getting her folks. I will save my doubloons for any christmas discounts instead. Thank you all for your feedback regarding this ship. Y'all have a good one now y'all hear!

  17. Here you will find a poll regarding premium/permanent camouflages. Leave your thoughts below! I’d also like to add several open questions for the discussion: Would you change the perks of Tiers IV-IX camouflages to be in accordance with the benefits of Tier X camos and each tier’s economy? What are your thoughts regarding the benefits of Tier X camos? Are there any permanent camouflages you don’t like aesthetically? Which ones? Thank you for your time. ”Ad Astra Per Aspera” Phantom out.
  18. (Place tongue firmly in cheek before proceeding. And remember: Irony is Truth) Invisible ships that whine about radar and battleship AP Big fat clumsy ships that whine about invisible ships, fires and walls of torps Floating citadels that win by hiding behind cover and lobbing lameness onto hapless targets that can’t fire back at them Smoke, smoke, smoke and some more smoke Fire-spitting smoke clouds featured prominently in the naval battles of the early to mid-20th Century Overpenetrations: 16” shells go right through a canoe, you know, for only 10% damage The Dispersion Slot Machine---feeling lucky? Well, are you, punk? Hair-pulling and rage incumbent upon the attempt to get a few digital stars next to one’s name through “competitive play” (mark you: there is no monetary compensation for this) Wailing, frustration and rage about the matchmaker Wailing, frustration and rage about “having a bad team” Wailing, frustration and rage about “losing 10 games in a row and it’s not my fault” Cyclones: “Well, Yuri Ivanovich, you have to encourage people to close the distance somehow.” “Great idea, Igor Semyonovich, let’s implement it!” (leaked conversation from WG St. Petersburg office, circa 2016). Angling: Because 2700 lb shells aren’t that dangerous if they hit you at 65 degrees. To borrow a phrase from WoT: "Bounced off!" Overmatch: The number 14.3 is extremely important in naval combat (who knew? I’ll tell you: The designers of 460mm Japanese naval guns. Smart!) One of the greatest innovations in naval strategy in this period involved pointing the bow of the ship toward the enemy and slowly reversing. Don’t you dare cross the T, noob. What do you think this is, a historical game? British battleships: Because to heck with your angling Great Naval Battles in bodies of water full of large masses of strangely-shaped land An aircraft carrier? Never seen one of those. Deep Water torps: Because battleship players are stupid and there are too many of them Radar: Because if your own DDs die, how will you ever see the little buggers? Egos and Tempers the size of the USS Midway Who knew the Soviet Navy boasted such a formidable surface fleet with artillery more accurate than anything any capitalist pig-navy could ever devise? “Destroyers in World War II primarily performed fleet and convoy escort, as well as antisubmarine warfare duties” Oh wait…. Detonations: “We at Wargaming.net believe in fun and engaging gameplay!” Detonations: “Buy this piece of striped cloth and hoist it up the mainmast. It will prevent the unlimited supply of torpedoes in your hull from going off when hit.” Fires: Because how else can a 127mm gun sink a 60,000 ton ship? 33% Skill, 67% Luck. Want to change that? Carry harder and git gud, scrub. “I play World of Warships because it helps me relax.” “I play World of Warships because of the friendly, welcoming and helpful community.” Losing credits? “May I interest you in a premium account, dear sir?” Armor penetration mechanics more Byzantine than organic chemistry Soviet Battleships: The End of the World is Coming
