  1. Here is a quick 3.5 minute video that you can watch if you don't want to read the details below. It showcases some action (ship deletion) from our wonderful guys in Department "B": WHAT IS TACTICAL STRIKE GROUP 4? Tactical Strike Group 4 is a veteran founded, owned and operated military-style gaming organization. TSG4 encompasses and combines various functions, organizational structures and practices from multiple military branches. The TSG4 community is defined as “military-style” because it has a rigid support infrastructure patterned after a military unit with awards, decorations, ranks and duty positions. It has a hard-coded and stable Chain of Command with a dedicated corps of leaders, officers, and NCOs at all levels. More than that, we pride ourselves on teamwork, community and communication and we espouse an ethos encompassing unity, respect, brotherhood, and family that can be found all throughout our Core Values and SOP's!. [TSG4] Tactical Strike Group 4 is a "casually competitive" real-world "umbrella organization" comprised of multiple companies (clans) within World of Warships (and other games) that participates on the North America (NA) Server! It was created with the goal of developing a fun environment and building a “Family of Friends”. We operate with openness, and strive to build a strong sense of camaradery while having lots of high seas fun! Tactical Strike Group 4 is the right clan for you If you want to “get in on the ground floor”, meet new people and build lasting friendships through the World of Warships community. Our clan was founded by Nocona, who is an Army veteran, and we place special attention towards encouraging any US Active Duty military, Guard, Reserves, Veterans and Retirees to join with us, and to welcoming them to our team! Many of our members are military veterans, and quite a few of them are still Active Duty.... so any current or previous military personnel are always welcome! To view a list of our current military members, visit the "Hall of Heroes" on our OpServ (the URL address is located below)! Tactical Strike Group 4 is serious and committed to its Core Value of building a close-knit “Family of Friends”. To that end, we only recruit, accept and retain members who reflect that policy. What this means is that as a clan, we do not “chase numbers” or recruit and accept members just to have a large roster! We would much rather have a smaller amount of solid, dedicated and reliable members by quickly getting rid of the "deadweight" players who are unwilling to develop lasting friendships, than have a huge roster of members who are merely “paper soldiers” and “names on a list’! Tactical Strike Group 4 is also the place to be if you are tired of solo queuing and are wanting to expand your Warships experience by battling alongside friends! If you have previously been in other clans that are riddled with divisive in-fighting and are wanting to escape the nasty “clan politics”…. Or if you are genuinely seeking to improve your gameplay and personal stats…. then welcome to the Strike Group! WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR: Players who are seeking Fun, Camaraderie and Friendship ANY tier of ships - we do not exclude players based on what ship tiers they don't have "Team" players - if you'd rather play alone, we are not for you. Consistently ACTIVE players - no deadweight, no "paper soldiers", no "I'll play for a week or two then disappear 'ghosts'", etc. (**note: we regularly cut deadweight out of our roster) - Do you want to have fun and div-up with other players? Well, guess what.... You're not the ONLY one! So, do your part... be active, be reliable and "be there" for them too! Don't be a selfish gamer. MATURITY... the mental aspect, not the physical age (just because you are over 18 does not automatically mean that you are actually mature!) Players with (or willing to get) Discord Players with a microphone (headset or free-standing) Players willing to help and to teach - We were ALL tier I and II at one time. Don't be arrogant and snooty. Help the newer players and share the experiences you've had with the game. Requirements to join [TSG4] Tactical Strike Group 4: Have the understanding that communication is critical to building a cohesive team and to completing missions in a successful manner (Refer to #4 and #7 below) . Be on the North America (NA) server and Be ACTIVE with the clan! All members must be active during the week. Pop on, say hello, Blow up some ships and just let the other members hear your voice and see you participating (simple)! In order for a clan to grow and improve it must be active and not merely carrying a roster of "paper soldiers" and "deadweight" members! Participate in an initial meeting on Discord with one of our officers and/or a Clan Recruiter BEFORE your application is approved or a membership offer is extended to you. Discord account with a working microphone and speakers. (Please understand that if you are trying to communicate without a microphone during a battle, your teammates may be too busy to be able to read messages or may not be able to switch screens and physically type-out a response to you in a timely manner… thus, you are effectively muted!) (Refer to #1 above and #7 below) Be 18 years of age or older in age and attitude.... Mature, Low-Drama members required! Represent yourself and your clan well! TSG4 does not subscribe to the notions of "elitism" or "arrogance" based of performance ratings. All of our in-game clans are part of the same organization outside of WOWS and are treated functionally identical, not as tiered clans based on WR, WTR, etc. TSG4 operates as a "Battalion" and each in-game sub-clan is a "Company" within the battalion. TSG4 members of all skill levels are assigned evenly into each company. Be logged into DIscord and in a TSG4 channel room any time that you are in-game… even if you are just “blowing steam and blasting ships”, and we have a room set-up on our Discord server designated specifically for “Solo Grinding”! However, NOT being on Discord while in-game is viewed as an unwillingness to be an integral part of an overall team and is completely contrary to our core value of “Family of Friends”. (Refer to #1 and #4 above) Racism, Sexism, Bigotry and Bullying is not allowed… and will NOT be tolerated! Discrimination of *any* type is prohibited within Tactical Strike Group 4, which includes (but not limited to): Race Age National Origin Sexual Orientation Religion Sexual Gender / Gender Identity Pregnancy Disability Understand that Religion and Politics are not games, so please do not discuss them on DIscord or the forums. We feel that friendly competition is healthy, but please curtail your "game rage" when things don't go as planned! WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN [TSG4] TACTICAL STRIKE GROUP 4? (What's in it for you) Our objective is simple: build a strong “Family Of Friends” that are willing (and capable) of practicing the mantra of "One Team, One Fight!" that our members can rely on for teamwork, camaraderie, and trust in battle! You don’t have to be “the best”, but you must be able to accept observational constructive criticism and be willing to learn! You must also have the proper attitude and positive personality. SALTY and NEGATIVE behavior/comments are not conducive to a supportive environment!! PERSONAL BONUSES! Here is the current progress of our clan base that shows the available bonuses offered to you through clan membership (click to enlarge) (pull up the actual base in-game to view the most recent updates)........... 10% to Commander XP bonus (5 of 5 Academy modules) 5% XP per battle on ships of all tiers (6 of 6 Research Center modules) 25% Free XP per battle on ships of all tiers (6 of 6 Design Bureau modules) 15% discount to cost of researchable ships of all tiers (6 of 6 Shipbuilding modules) 15% discount to post-battle service on ships of all tiers (6 of 6 Dry Dock modules) 10% increase to coal received (3 of 3 Coal Port modules)(coming very soon) 5% increase to steel received (1 of 3 Steel Port modules)(comnig very soon) WHAT WE ARE OFFERING: As detailed above, the individual and personal bonuses from the clan base A Military-styled gaming community with A fully functional Rank Structure A "Family of Friends" and a sense of "Brotherhood" - as stated in our motto (whether you are male or female) Exclusive inclusion into a select membership of a very selective organization a 50-channel Discord server - to service all aspects and modes of our gaming Leadership opportunities - detailed on our Operations Server website (OpServ) True Teamwork Participation in Clan Wars and other in-game activities in each of our companies (sub-clans) In-house Promotions, Awards and decorations to showcase and acknowledge your personal achievements in TSG4 and in the game! In-house Tournaments and Competitions for gold... and other prizes! Personal Leadership development and advancement through our Chief Petty Officer course that can also be applied outside of the game (real life learning). an organization of Top-notch, Quality People who have been screened and vetted through our Recruiting Process! We offer a "learning environment" for players of ALL skill levels through online self-taught training modules on our OpServ as well as numerous "hands-on" in-game FTX's (Focused Training Exercises) that are hosted and led by more knowledgeable and adept members in the particular topic of training. We are not a group of Unicum players.... but we do like to WIN! Additionally, the majority of our members are willing to work with newer/lower tiered members in any tier ship in which they are trying to improve! We value open and timely communication, as well as the ability to remain silent in order to listen to instruction and follow direction/guidance. We offer several ways to maintain contact with our members. We have our own Discord server, OpServ and Facebook page! We also offer a very organized Military hierarchy that includes a clear timeline and criteria for Promotion. It is "based on" the actual US military (but scaled-back a little for gaming purposes) and an expansive Awards and Recognition system (with clearly defined criteria for each award). Each of these systems are designed as pathways for not only individual improvement and progression, but also as a means to grow and improve with the clan! Using these methods of Training, Promotion and Awards, members can watch themselves grow and rise through the ranks within the clan without the typical "politics" and "favorite's Game" that is prevalent in most other clans. Above all else, we offer a fun environment that is based on the concepts of "Family" and "Friendship" where "bad attitudes", "game raging", "stat trolling" and "performance pressure" have no place! All that we ask in return is that you comply with the above requirements, carry within yourself a strong desire to work closely with your friends and clan-mates, and be a personal representative of TSG4... at all times! [TSG4} Tactical Strike Group 4 encourages all of its members to have fun and engage themselves in an atmosphere of Friendship. We accept all players, as long as they meet the requirements as set forth above. Come show what you're made of... and earn your stripes! Mickey joined the sea-faring pollywogs.... you can, too!

  2. Armored Knights is now accepting recruits to join our World of Warships division. The Armored Knights has been very active in the Wargaming community for almost six years. We are a social clan of over 100 players in 7 divisions, across all three platforms (tanks, ships, planes). We are a clan that prefers a fun, mature environment. Our vision is one of creating a CLAN that is based on friendship, camaraderie, fair play and respect for others; win or lose. We strive to adhere to this founding vision. A lot of us are military (active, prior or retired) so military members are most welcome! While we do compete in Clan Battles, our "bread and butter" comes more in the form of clan activities outside of CB time-frames. We enjoy having a lot of fun, dropping in together, aiding in those bothersome grinds, and offering training environments for those looking to up their skillsets! What the Armored Knights Offer: A fun casual environment where people learn to play together both individually and as a group. Our own Discord server and website for our members to use. Clan events as well as tournament play. Clan Battles - Steady performances with fully outfitted bases! Training sessions Requirements: 1. Discord: All Knights will be logged onto our Discord server while in-game. Discord is what allows a clan to maintain its camaraderie and tactical communications during the game. 2. Game Activity: Must be active in-game at least 4 times a week. This is self explanatory. 3. Website/Forums: Not a requirement, we post links within Discord to our forums to help with information pushed to the entire clan. 4. Participation: All Knights will want to participate in Clan Events. Clan Events are typically 1-2 weeks in length allowing for maximum time for all knights to be able to participate. Active participation is necessary for individual Knights to improve their skills and for -AK- as a clan to maintain its close knit nature. Benefits: 1. Competitive environment: environment designed to maximize learning, grinding and teamwork. 2. Clan Events: Multiple clan events usually supported by GOLD/GIFT SHOP prizes and/or Clan ribbons. We are looking forward to adding to our ranks those who wish to take part in a drama free environment and get the most out of what Warships will have to offer.

    Clan of Old Grumpy Men OGZR

    Good day Captains; A short time ago some WOWS friends got together and formed a “Clan of Grumpy Old Men” or (OGZR) Geezer for short. What are our considerations about the game and having fun? Being friends and playing together. Sounds simple. You would be surprised how messy things get with stress, drama, real life and the need to be better than everyone else. We win more than we lose but we have zero focus on stats. How do you know if you will be a good fit with us? Ask yourself these few questions. Do you sit down to play and de-stress and have a few laughs? Do you speak English, age 25+, play your matches on Discord and can be respectful and courteous to all? If you say yes to them you are a fit so pull up a chair with these Grumpy Old Men, hang out, play a few games and make some friends. Any questions, just ask, we will leave the light on for you! Tuna
  5. We are the Renegades your news media told you about. We started the RAIDS on Area51... If you're against the political machine and don't need Parental Guidance, or a Safe Space. We are staging our next move... and will give you a shot! If this sounds like a fit for you, send a request and a clandestine agent will get with you.
  6. Keep America Great [KAG] is recruiting! We are an active, competitive clan (currently Typhoon League). We have a mature and skilled player base with tons of experience and resources. Strong leadership and teamwork is the foundation we've built ]KAG] on. We currently have over 40 active players and run Clan Battles and Sync-Drop divisions regularly. We also do mock clan battles and scrimmages against other clans between the regular Clan Wars seasons. We always seek to learn and improve ourselves and provide our members with all available resources. Another unique feature of [KAG] is quarterly competitions focused on teamwork in which our members can earn prizes, usually doubloons or premium time, for winning the event as a division. We have members from around the world with a large variety of backgrounds and experiences. Our basic requirements are as follows: 50% win rate, 50,000 avg damage, and 1,200 avg experience. Active in-game and on Discord. Team player with a mature attitude. (As you can tell by the clan name there are no safe spaces 😁) If your stats are not quite there, but you would like to be considered for a sister clan we are creating soon for players of all skill levels then just let me know! If you have questions or are interested and would like to check us out message @Ivan_Namirettov and I'll send you our Discord link. GLHF and see you around!

    Peachy Keen w/ Georgia

    Well, after much deliberation, (and watching probably every Georgia video on youtube four times over) I finally got her. She is everything I was hoping for and more. Love the guns, the secondaries are much akin to the Mass. and who doesn't love a speedy boi? For me to jump in a ship and actually do good in it off the bat is a rare sight. Probably better games out there for what this ship offers but hey, personal goals am I right? Still learning how much beating she can take and how to maximize the guns. Overall this does bring a smile to my face and hopefully, with time, I can pick up another coal ship.

    Deplorable Potatoes

    Hello possible member! Thank you for showing interest in Deplorable Potatoes. We are a causalish that is about more than World of Warships. We are about "family", an online gaming family. We play all sorts of games together not just Warships, this is just the primary one. We don't look at stats other than amount of battles, and we do not require a tier 10...There are almost no requirements to join! What we do require is: 100 Battles minimum (Only stat requirement) Have a Microphone Be Social Be Respectful Be Active Having a microphone and being social is what makes clan play fun and enjoyable. What's the point of being in a clan and playing with people if you can't talk to each other? Being respectful is just a part of being a human being. To be in any clan you have to be active, however, life happens. Just let people know if you have to take a break or if something comes up. If you're interested join our discord and talk to us! 
  9. Ahoy! Yes! You read that right! The AFK family of clans is recruiting active members! If you're a team player looking for a fun clan that plays serious, come check us out! We currently run three clans: AFK, AFK-2, and (not surprisingly) AFK-3! Which one might be right for you? Well, the big difference is AFK & AFK-2 are for those Captains interested in Clan Battles and will commit to playing them (min. 20 battles a season), while AFK-3 doesn't require CB participation. We're all one family, and share a common Discord (which is mandatory.) If you: No Drama-momma Min 45% win rate Willing to div up and play randoms, co-op, and ranked Like having fun but want to play to get better while enjoying fellowship with other gamers. Willing to use Discord Then we: Might be the home for you. Active in Clan Battles. We also plan training skirmishes with other clans we're allied with, as well as tournaments and in-clan training. Have players across time zones in NA, so almost every night there's probably someone on to div up with! I truly believe this game is not so much about Stats, but about how good of a 'fit' an individual and a clan are. Message me and let's chat on discord one night and chat about the clan and your expectations. Meet some of the guys, div up and play, and see if we're all right for each other! As one of our newer members put it after clan battles, "... this has been some of the most fun with warships ever. Thank you all and to many more ahead!" And did I mention no drama? We have a very low threshold for it. FvD

    Crossing the Rubicon

    I was going to write a post about “How to Play Fubuki" (Tier VI Tech Tree Destroyer). When I tried writing, all I could come up with was, this ship is not going to provide a player an experience that is challenging or enjoyable. In fact, as a unicum, all I could come up with was this is draining, daunting, and tiresome. I realized almost immediately, that I was looking at the problem set wrong. I started to look at random play for Tier VI destroyers in general, and it is a common theme I am noticing, destroyers feel like a forlorn hope the moment you press the battle button in the current meta. I am a very strong player, and yes, I can average 60-80k damage a game in Tier VI destroyers, but I do not derive a sense of accomplishment when I do. In fact, I feel more defeated and deflated as I am forced to avoid torpedoes, radar, hydro, and worst of all, airplanes from CVs. I began a more holistic look into destroyer play past Tier V, and after a few hundred games, I have concluded that destroyer play is no longer something I enjoy, which is unfortunate because it is probably my favorite class to play or should I say…was. It was also the tether for me remaining within this community. In my opinion, Fun and Challenging Destroyer play in random battles is, broken. Wargaming crossed the Rubicon when they initiated the new Aircraft Carrier rework. Ironically, just prior to the release, I was at an all time high for game satisfaction. Mind you, this is when the bug existed that ended gun bloom when line of sight was broken, and CVs were far fewer under the RTS. It made sense (to me). Additionally, there were not four CVs in every match where I was eviscerated by rockets, my punishment for the mere mistake of queuing into a random battle at the same time they did. Some players may continue to see the CV rework as a challenge, and I whole heartedly pass the torch to them, it is now theirs to bear. I wish them good fortune in the struggles to come, starting now. Unfortunately, for me, this is well beyond challenge and into the why should I even try? The answer is surprisingly calming to me…I can be more productive with my personal time doing other things. (One of these include spending more time with my family.) The release of the CV rework felt like the player-base was subjected to Foie Gras. I have no statistics for this, no stats to back it up…other than the plethora of threads that have followed and the general discontent on all sides of the argument. The growing tension is palpable and is also a motivator for lack of enjoyment. Terms like “just dodge” did little to improve my perspective as destroyers became easy pickings for CVs. I have witnessed a single squadron of rocket planes destroy a destroyer in one go, despite their efforts to, “just dodge.” Fare thee well gaming community. I am retiring from this game, uninstalling, and have no plans to return. It has been a lot of fun and I have many fond memories, but what I no longer have, is a willingness to continue a stubborn march of depreciating returns in challenge and enjoyment, which are critical to my personal time investment, and you can take that to the bank. I will end this post by saying a quote from an old favorite, a baseball movie, For the Love of the Game with Kevin Costner, “tell them I'm through, for the love of the game", Billy Chapel. Kongo Out!

    Guess that ship

    See the constant back and forth between cv and non-cv players has really turned these forums into a rather gloomy place. Let's change that. The idea is simple. I will show 2 after action screenshots. The names and ship icons have been blacked out and hidden. From what you see can you guess the ship. rules. 1. one guess per person. 2. NO anti or pro agenda nonsense. 3. Blacked out sections exceed the required amounts in order to confuse. Lets start. GUESS THAT SHIP!

  13. Some background: Tried CV pre-rework albeit at a mere Tier 4. I wasn't particularly interested in the "RTS" style of the controls at the time. Having said that, I also haven't put it the time to learn it either. As a Destroyer main (my 1st Tier 10 was a Shimakaze) two years ago, which have now changed to all three types of ships. Essentially, being evenly spread across all classes of ships currently. I was on the receiving end from the 1st wave of the CV rework implementation, and the following second iteration, to current. Lately, I have tried the CV side to really see what the change was about. Frankly, the UI was intuitive and a vast improvement from the RTS style. Which suited me fine. Truthfully (and nefariously), I also wanted to learn how the view from the CV side was about. So I can counter them with my non-CV ships. Grinded through the "Fly Strike Win" directives, to earn the necessary "florins" to unlock the Tier 4, Tier 6 CVs (IF I was able to unlock T8 with Florins only, I would've as well). Sidebar, Thank you WG for allowing us to convert the Florins into Premium time. Now unlocked the Tier 8 CV, played some battles with her. Things that I have noticed with T8 CV game play. I can't speak for the "nerf" of the particular RN squadrons (Bombs), since I wasn't able to play it prior to two previous patches (ergo, after the changes). Having played the entry level CV (Tier 4). I have learned that it's not as easy (maybe I was incorrectly having large expectations) as some may have alluded to. It may be the introduction tier, but the word "enjoyment", "fun" is not. I have quickly skipped (and sold) Tier 4, to 6. Once on Tier 6. I have enjoyed far more than previous tier battles. It was quite literally like night and day. A massive jump, yet the Match Making (hence forth as "MM") would devilishly even out (or take the last bastion of perceived enjoyment) the enjoyment from you. However, this immensely pales in comparison with the Tier 8 MM. With Tier 6, one had chances and opportunities to "Fly, Strike, Win". With T8 MM, it's perfectly okay with playing against Tier 9's. But when faced with Tier 10's. It is not "fun" for the CV players. Interesting anecdote : I have read on the forum about how DD players have voiced their concerns with such passioned crescendo. That they "can't do anything against CV's". Whilst I agree from the previous patches (pre 0.8.2) this may hold some truth. But now with two patch changes, I would have to disagree with such statements. I fly my T8 Rocket/Torpedo/Bomb planes to T10 Destroyer Daring/Gearing/Harugumo (and some T9's). My planes would all reduce to orange health instantly. Loitering any longer in the AA bubble would kill them all. Again, very quickly. So DD mains here, with their strong arguments does not hold any weight any more ( Sorry, but not sorry. My former DD Main brothers/Sisters ). Specially with the current changes (0.8.2). One could argue that I should try it with T10 CV's. Here's the caveat. The progression to T10 CV is, ironically as such; 4, 6, 8, 10. There is no in-between tiers nor do the MM accommodate to the Tier 8 players. Whilst some may get the odd winning streaks with their T8's. Or fortunate MM's more often than most. This player, have had so far fought 111 battles with T8 RN CV alone. Would you like to know how many battles with majority of over 60% of Tier 8's/9's in roster was versus Tier 10's? 19 battles out of 111. That is roughly 21%. I read somewhere in the forum that the chances of relatively appropriate MM was around 30% mark. So I have one could say, have had an unlucky streak with MM. Looking back, I have had more enjoyment with Tier 6 CV than 8 (I now regret selling T6 CV). Especially considering the Service Cost per battle. Or shall I say Penalty costs per battle. Being the all mighty CV player that sways the pendulum to the win was rare for me, even more so with Tier 8 battles. No matter what I've tried, in Tier 8 MM. It is nearly impossible for me, or that is the experience so far (who knows, WG may eventually cater to the little people like me). I have last night, had a very close (because our particularly salty Worcester loitered around the spawn areas. Ran away from all caps, and contacts, and from the views of the rest of the players not just yours truly. Along with another BB. Didn't really help with much) loss/win. It was a four CV battle in total. 2 x 10's, 2 x 8's. We had a super unicum T10 CV player (after checking out his profile), and me trying to help. I can say quite frankly without any bias that, that player did all he could to turn the tide. No matter what he and I did, we could not secure that win. So the argument that CVs can literally change the course of the battle is yet to convince me otherwise so far. I believe that the psychological impact the T10 CV's brings, just like when you see Montana's, Yamato's. Is the same. What matters (the win overall), really comes down to AAA capable ships (hell, any ships) to pull their weight appropriately. That is what I've noticed in my novice point of view of playing RN CV (T8). So, the question is why did I play so many battles with such an uphill battle against with the MM's that I've experienced. I wanted to hone my CV craft more (I still think that I'm not good enough), and also I got the Permanent Camo ( "Perma Camo" ) for her. Which even after a bad battle (some resulting in sub 8 minute battle times with losses), I'd lose around 16,000~38,000 credit losses. Which is something I can swallow, considering that it is a "high tier battle". If it wasn't for the Perma camo & Premium Time during the grind. I'm not sure I would've played her beyond 30~40 battles, and that's pushing the estimate. The credit losses would cripple my already low credit balance. Adding to the fact that, I've been having sub optimal MM battles. It wasn't enjoyable at all, and I would've resorted to not playing her at all. Would I keep grinding to T10 RN CV? The answer is, I'm not so sure I would. Knowing that my MM percentage is already lower than most by a large margin. Without having a Perma Camo, and Premium time. My losses would place me into a negative balance, very very quickly. p.s. For those of you who would inevitably check my stats, to form a rebuttal. It is in my EU account as; LowSpeedHighDrag EDIT: spelling
  14. This is to quickly thank the following players I've been graced to play with today. I needed an achievement, asked whether I could ram the CV. The Minotaur player @2P0 (on my left) replied with "Go for it". As well as a Yamato @[SRPHC] michel200 (couldn't find you on this forum?) in my right flank breaking off that easy kill. All within less than 12~14km away. Side note, OPFORs Bismarck player @Jozzaboy was halted for about 5 minutes behind an island off a cap. He wrote in chat: "Someone kill me, been stuck for 5 minutes" (paraphrasing). I wrote in response: "Straighten up then move". To which Bismarck said, "I tried lol". So I pushed up to him, and wrote; "I'll nudge you". "Thanks" came the reply. The amusing thing is that right before I could get in contact. My bow decided to greet the shallow water just about 1 meter or so off him. Basically, what we all know as "pulling a @Notser". We both laughed, in the midst of shells flying literally all around our ships (imagine WWII MG nest going cyclic). His HP was quickly depleting. I had to (sorry Jozza) fire...(this is after not wanting to fire onto him). Eventually, sinking Bismarck as requested by the Captain. I must admit, those two events in one battle. Made my evening even better in Warships, and dare I say. Reminded me of previous years, enjoyments.
  15. I mean, who wouldn't want to be able to curve your flak "Wanted" style? Don't mind the first drop, minor FPS drop on my PC did this.

  17. Just for fun, I've decided to use the HP equations that WG uses for different classes and extrapolate that for modern warships. I'm using the following formulas (courtesy of @Lert) which gives generally accurate results for ship HP except for some outliers. Battleship HP Formula: (1.1812 X tonnage*) + 10837 Cruiser HP Formula: (1.8631 X tonnage*) + 9859.4 Destroyer HP Formula: (4.4907 X tonnage*) + 3435.5 Aircraft Carrier HP Formula: (0.7311 X tonnage*) + 28253 USS Gerald R. Ford: Aircraft carrier, 100,000 tons, 101,363 HP (almost as much as Grosser Kurfurst despite much greater displacement) USS Port Royal: Cruiser, 9,600 tons, 27,745 HP (about as much as an Atlanta) USS Zumwalt: Destroyer, 14,564 tons, 68,838 HP (kek) And just to throw in a Russian surface combatant. Pyotr Velikiy: Cruiser, 28,000 tons, 62,026 HP (still not as much as Zumwalt ) EDIT: As a bonus, here's the HP formula for submarines, based on the Halloween event. Submarine HP formula: 2.7656 x tonnage + 5837.7 Ohio-class SSBN/SSGN: 18,750 metric tons, 57,693 HP.
  18. Lots of words being flung around on the forums. Threats of quitting, sky is falling (which it is ), etc. And no, this isn't intended to be a super serious poll.

    Deplorable Potatoes

    Hello possible member! Thank you for showing interest in Deplorable Potatoes. We are a still relatively new clan that is about more than Warships. We are about family, an online family. We play all sorts of games together not just Warships, this is just the primary one. We don't look at stats, we don't require a tier 10...There are almost no requirements to join! What we do require is: Have a Microphone Be Social Be Respectful Be Active Having a microphone and being social is what makes clan play fun and enjoyable. What's the point of playing with people if you can't talk to each other? Being respectful is just a part of being a human being. To be in any clan you have to be active, however, life happens. Just let people know if you have to take a break. We currently have 25 members. If you're interested join our discord and talk to us!
