  1. 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) 10% increase to steel received (3 of 3 Steel Port modules) 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! To get the ball rolling with joining TSG4... Visit our OpServ (website), register an account using your in-game name and submit an official application through the "Join Us... Become A Member" button on the top menu bar. Join our Discord server and speak to someone on our Command Staff or one of our Clan Recruiters (see membership requirement #3 above). **Important: Do NOT click "apply to clan" in the game.

    [ HMCSH ]Clan Battles

    Hello, HMCSH is recruiting. We have changed up our asks this time around. We are currently a mix of players who enjoy clan battles with our new goal being to stay in Gale league(league 2) while pushing for STORM(league3) now and then but we are not sure we can stay there with our mix of of guys. That being said we like to compete but you should expect a mix of competitiveness with some light heated banter in chat as we do get sidetracked a little with a few jokes :) If you want to be more competitive to push further that's not our goal at this time as right now we want to play have fun and compete. We don't want to compete to the extreme at this time so expect a mix of skill levels as we try to figure out how we win games. Those are our new Goals. If you want to join hit one of us up in game or reply to this thread / send a DM. See you on the high seas. ChevalierClass
  4. 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 seven years. We are a social clan in 7 divisions divided into 3 fleets. 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 - robust library incorporated with phased training to put practical tests on learned skills! 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. 6 games in clan divisions for folks that will be participating in clan battle seasons. The latter fosters team play and clan cohesion. 3. Website/Forums: occasional required reading that centers around Clan-wide events or training updates. 4. Participation: All Knights will want to participate in Clan Events. Clan Events are typically run in between WG events, and will vary in style. 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 often supported by GOLD/GIFT SHOP prizes. 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. For more information check out or website at www.armoredknights.us or join us on Discord. Our Discord server information is on our website.

  5. My reaction: Yay! Another British 10 point captain! (But what to put him on?) My daughter's reaction: *sees Cap holding Fishy in her bowl; makes excited little-girl noises.* My son's reaction: "He's in command?" *beat* "You're dead."
  6. We have approx 312 ships in port. This last week I scuttled all my Carriers (CV). No reason at all to have them as they were simply awful to use and had no fun factor for me at all. Was (and still is I guess) a 'collector' but who really cares. I used to have about 12 ships I enjoyed using but really, in the past several months I've little reason to go to any particular individual ship. All the buff's and nerf's seem to make all the ships just plain vanilla. The game mechanics renders most everything to be so lacking in originality as to be obvious and boring. Satisfaction of anything within game is so hard to achieve. Its gotten so bad I've had my 12 year daughter make up some paper 'fortune tellers' (also called a cootie catcher, chatterbox, salt cellar, whirlybird, or paku-paku) its a form of origami used in children's games) to decide which ship I'll use. This has worked out to be as fun in deciding which ship to use, to actually playing the ship. More time with daughter is always good. Now I find more enjoyment in the reading and followup information wargaming and WoWS provides, not within the game play itself. Game play is also hell at times with the human players. I've gotten 'negative' feed-back for playing to close, to far, not supplying resource I didn't even have on that particular ship etc etc. Many, do hate releasing control to others as they 'always' know what is best. I see little hope of anything changing soon. Was wondering if someone knows if its okay to turn over a WoWS account to another family member or friend?

    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

    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!

  20. 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.
  21. 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.

  24. South Pacific Firestorm is recruiting players that want to be a part of a fun team environment. So if you prefer to solo run 99% of the time this clan is not for you. Discord is required as we use it for division, clan battles, and pretty much all clan communication. We don't really have a requirement for win rate, but must have at least 1 T8 (non premium) ship as most of us prefer to run in the T8 - T10 range and so your more familiar with the higher tier meta of gameplay. You must be an active player (we realize that RL comes first) but you cant grow as a team if you don't run fairly regularly. If your interested then please apply in game. (just search SPF in the clan search tab to find us) or send me a message in game just search Gryphen_Ghost and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
  25. We are a drama free mature group of players that enjoy getting the most out of the game and have fun doing it. We have wrapped up our first season of clan battles and have a mix of new up to very experienced players. We are recruiting experienced and non experienced players who play most days. We use Discord for communication in clan, division, and scenario battles in addition to sharing information about the game etc. I can help with Discord setup if needed.
