  1. Then Mortis Mari (Death At Sea) is just the clan for you! We have ACTIVE and CONSISTENT members that division and play DAILY. This enabled us to place in Typhoon League (Top 50 Over-All NA) in just 98 battles. It takes most clans twice that number of battles to get there! If this sounds like the clan for you then here is some more about us: We have a great community of active, mature players with strong and able leadership. Each of our members has a voice in clan decisions and we want them to provide as much feedback and ideas as possible so that the clan can improve and grow. Several of our members are current and former Military and Law Enforcement. We division and play together daily which improves our effectiveness as a team, especially in competitive modes. This enables us to try out different things and exchange information about the game to improve each player's success. We provide invaluable training resources, updates, and guides through our Discord channel so that all our members have easy access to them. We even run training sessions and scrimmages with other clans! Our goal is to reduce the skill gap between our players by improving and growing them. This makes everyone a valuable team player and an asset to the clan. Here are some basic requirements to be considered for membership: 50k average damage with good average experience and battles. Active in-game and Discord. Be a Team Player (willing to learn, improve, and teach). Hardcore - Always go out with a bang. Dealer of Death - It's in the name so kill them all!!! IMPORTANT: We place great emphasis on the activity and personality of our members. If you are active in Discord, division with us, and have an affable attitude you will drastically improve your chances of membership. We would rather have a mediocre player who is fun to have around and we can teach to improve, than an inactive, toxic Unicum. If you want to check us out and get to know us before joining here is our Discord link: https://discord.gg/hYnH9NF Hop on in and see what you're missing out on! (I highly recommend our state-of-the-art Memes channel). If you have any questions or comments then leave them below or message @Ivan_Namirettov directly. And remember: It's not about your time in battle, it's about your impact in battle that makes the difference. Good luck and see you around!
  2. I haven't been playing any Ranked this season simply because I don't care to, but I've been seeing people sing the praises of this season here on the forums, particularly of the 1v1 format and how they get into epic BB brawls in it. However, that doesn't make very much sense to me. I would have thought that in a situation where there's only two people on the map, stealth and the ability to pick out ships from stealth would be the deciding factor. The only ships people would want in this instance would be close quarters gunboats like the Akizuki, torpedo boats like the Z-23, or Radar cruisers like the Cleveland and the smokeless Edinburgh. BBs should be a complete joke because they'd get outspotted and torped with impunity. And yet, it seems, I'm wrong, and I don't understand why. Is there some sort of mechanic in place that keeps people from slinking around in DDs like a game of Spy vs. Spy, or is there something else entirely that I'm missing? If someone could please tell me what it is, I'd very much appreciate it. Thanks in advance for any answers I may get. Sincerely, 1Sherman.

    Your opinion about 1x1 ranked

    These battles are unusual for 2 reasons, 1/ 1x1 mode. 2/ Assymetrical mode. Your opinion? - More 1x1 battles with different tiers, map sizes? - More Assymetrical battles with 2x2, 3x3 modes? This thread could be a poll in fact.

    Why Ranked is good

    So I finally got to rank 5 tonight and considering I probably won't make rank 1, I feel I should reflect at my personal high point. This ranked season has been a struggle for a lot of people on this forum myself very much included. But while people tend to view the negatives, I wanted to make a positive ranked thread. Quality team play I know most people don't think of ranked this way but hear me out. Most people past rank 10 actually want to win and understand that there is a difference between saving a star and gaining a star. They want to work with you to win games so talk with them(nicely) and coordinate, you would be surprised how well this works. Shout out to @Admiral_Thrawn_1 for a nice Gearing game in tandem with my Daring. Learning how to win as opposed to how to farm Ranked can either teach how to farm and save a star or how to win and gain a star. Playing to win makes better players and if more people play ranked to win, I think this game can really improve and the player base can develop more skilled game play. Good competitive game play Those stomps that people love to complain about in randoms do not happen very often in ranked. I find myself out of complements to give after playing a few rounds of ranked because I see a lot of good plays by people. Players working together to focus down low hp ships, knowing when to be aggressive and push and when to play it safe and retreat, well timed radars and some of the best DD knife fights I have been part of. Honestly this is probably the best competitive game play that players can have outside of clan battles which requires a large active clan to play. As someone who does not belong to a large/active clan, Ranked is my best chance to play with and against skilled players. Same tier MM No more top or bottom tier to worry about game imbalances. You are all equal(ish) depending on how you view certain ships. Rewards Flags both temporary and permanent as well as signals, camos and steel are great. Really looking forward to playing with that -20% to service cost discount that I just got with the Premier league flag. Ranked has a potential to be a really good game mode and I hope more people can enjoy it and take some of these positives from this ranked season
  5. I heard we'll be getting a 1v1 after this season of ranked, maybe sometime late December or January. Does anyone know when exactly?

    Z-52 in Ranked

    Until Rank 5 I rarely saw Z-52s. Now they seem much more frequent. What's up? I like the Z-52 for Randoms, but 10.5 km torps are tough in the land of perpetual radar. Often only 1 or 2 DDs so the hydro smoke thing doesn't seem as powerful. P.S. I've been running radar Yueyang mostly.

    Jolly Roger

    Alguém sabe porque a WG não esta mais dando as bandeiras Jolly Rogers
  9. I am sure many of you have witnessed poor player behaviour, punished with time in the "coop gulag". What we have not considered, sufficiently, is how this impacts on innocent, upstanding, and respectable Coop players. So what can be done? First of all we should consider, where and when the majority of pink+ "orange" infractions occur. They mostly take place in competitve game modes, and the more competitive the game mode, the more infractions per player, that are committed. Secondly, we should reflect on how bad behaviour in competitive might be corrected, the answer is logical. In a ranked correctional mode, where progress is defined by both behaviour and battle victories, and by the example set by our very best and most successful ranked mode players. Yes, that's right, well behaved elite players should play alongside offenders, in ranked 1, at the very top, giving badly behaved players a taste of what they are missing. bad behaviour would be corrected by a minimum number of games in correctional (and educational) ranked battles. for exceptionally bad behaviour, be "deranked", losing a number of ranked levels, depending on the seriousness of the infraction? I look forward to your helpful thoughts/ regards.

    Ranked is rigged

    So, ranked has been rigged for destroyers to have an easy time. Play a battleship, you'll be greeted by 3-5 dd's, usually the kitakaze because it's overpowered as [edited], and 2-3 musashis because they're slow as [edited] and can't dodge torps. Play a cruiser, you'll be greeted by one or two dds, double battle cruiser and 2-3 BBs. Destroyers don't even have to try anymore. They have literally everything on their side now. The game works solely for them, nothing else matters.
  11. In this ranked season, some of the strongest battleships appear to be those that can dominate an enemy bow-on battleship. The three obvious contenders are Musashi, Jean Bart, and Lion (although Lion is otherwise not too strong). Lion and Jean Bart have high fire chances and thus can reliably burn to death anything that refuses to show broadside, while Musashi has the gun caliber to simply punch through with AP regardless. However, for the rest of the tier 9 battleships, their options are more limited. Granted, some have better survivability than others (Sovetsky Soyuz, for instance, can tank a good bit better than, say, Iowa), but the fact is that using only AP none of them can do more than get deck pens and superstructure overpens (which is a pretty tedious process, to say the least) unless one of them finally makes a mistake and shows a bit too much broadside. And certainly, if they try a bow-on contest with AP against an HE-slinging Lion/Jean Bart or a Musashi that does not make any mistakes, they'll lose. On the other hand, none of them are known for having good HE. When in a bow-on situation against an enemy battleship (in particular Musashi/Lion/Jean Bart), is it worth switching to HE or is it better to stick with AP?
  12. Hello. I have been hearing rumors that with Wargaming experimenting with tier 8 clan battles and tier 9 ranked, that there will probably be a competive season consisting of tier 3 ships. This really got me thinking that it would be pretty interesting to have a clan battle or ranked season with these mighty ships. What ships do y’all think would be good when a ranked or clan battle season comes in the near future focused in on tier 3 ships???

    Ranked Season

    Hey all! didn’t the patch notes say that there was going to be a new season of ranked this month? Does anyone have any information of that? Also, is Wargaming going to give out rentals like they did last season, so new players like me who don’t have tier 9s will still be able to participate in the fun?
  14. One of the constant gripes I’ve heard over and over this season centers around frustration with ranked teams and the stress of the current ranked system. The majority of the unicums I know were not enjoying it and a lot of the overall playerbase seemed to espouse a similar sentiment. Consequently I wanted to propose a potential system to address this problem after coming up with the idea when talking with JohnTheRuthless. Since most of the players I know well stem from the comp community I wanted to run the idea by a wider audience. The core of the solution revolves around using experience as the metric to advance up the ranks as opposed to the star system. Ranks are gained through the base XP earned in ranked matches, with a certain amount required per rank. Losses no longer cause players to lose stars or ranks with the major penalty coming from the forfeiture of the additional experience that would have been gained from a win. The system still rewards individual skill as those individuals who are able to win consistently will continue to be rewarded with higher XP gains and a quicker rank out. Ultimately the intent is to maintain most of the challenge of ranking out while creating a system that helps out average players and skilled players alike with a stress reduction for everyone involved. Ideally this could be a system demo’d in a ranked sprint first as opposed to a full ranked season.
  15. Since playing ranked this year, and I am certainly no unicum, I have been amazed at some team strategies that some players cannot grasp and seem hard. I will place them in my order of difficulty and comment. I would love to see your order, comments and additions. 1) Cruisers, especially radar cruisers need to position themselves where they can support the DD's with radar and fire at opposing DD's. 2) BB's, especially in ranked, need to move in to where they can support the above mentioned cruisers and shoot opponents DD's as well. 3) If an opposing DD is spotted and you can take a shot at it...do it. Don't just try to selfishly farm a BB. DD's become extremely powerful if left alive till later in the match 4) Focus fire and call out targets as well. 5) Complete lemming trains fail 98% of the time.If your team leaves you no choice and your ship really is not suitable to kiting the weak side, then the strong side has to push like maniacs. ( Lemming is still a bad idea though) 6) Yoloing, even if a brawler like a GK, or making yourself a target for the entire enemy team at the beginning of a match is.... well dare I say it....just dumb. Let your opponent get focused first. There will be plenty of chances to be aggressive when you know the positions of the reds. 7) Sometimes doing very little to nothing is called for. Example: if you are extremely low on health and one shot-able by most everything, for gosh sake's go dark...don't continue blazing away. You are worth points to your team by being alive. These are my observations. I would love feedback on yours.
  16. Granted, I don't have many tier 10s (I have one, Midway, which I refuse to take out until I have a better sense of the new CV controls), but I do have a decent number of tier 8s and 9s (and again, granted, I haven't touched PvP since March). Nevertheless, I feel like recently WG has given far too much focus on the high tiers (tier 8-10) and not enough focus on the middle or even lower tiers (tier 7-). I imagine there are reasons for this, but I must point out that so far: all clan battles up to the present have been tier 10 the last time a ship tier 7 and below could advance up to rank 1 in a proper ranked season (as opposed to ranked sprint) was in July 2017 (i.e. it's been almost 2 years now); everything else has been tier 8-10 (heck, even tier 8 and 9 ships don't have it too good either, since tier 9 only has had one season dedicated to it and tier 8 ships were locked out from the upper ranks in favor of tier 10 ships in recent seasons) the majority of the new armory/premium ships released or being planned for release are tier 8-10, and a number of them can only be earned through steel (and thus the catch-22 cycle is that one must have high tier ships to earn said steel) In addition, I do not believe I am the only one when I state that a) I do not enjoy being constantly forced to use high-tier ships and fight in the high-tier meta and b) I dislike the overall hemorrhaging of silver that comes with repeated high-tier battles. It's not as if high tier battles create instantly engaging battles between 2 competent teams either—potatoes crop up the high tiers too. I think when it gets to the point that rental ships have to be provided (and handicapped ships at that, given you can't put camouflages on them) that perhaps somewhere, somehow, there's a problem that needs fixing.
  17. I know the title seems like click bait but honest hear me out. This threw me off big time. I "was" whole heart anti-rental ships in ranked. I'm sure other people are the same way "what the hell Wargaming what are you doing!" So I was shooting the $hit this afternoon with my clan commander. He tells me hey I got a new guy join other night. Nothing new there, always enjoy hearing the story on the new people. He tells me to look at his profile and look at his tier 10 ships. He had several of my favorite tens. He said guess what hes using in ranked. I figured Des Moines his most played ship. Nope. Then what? Rental. I told my commander bull$hit. He sold all of his tier 10s for credits. He has been using the rentals in ranked. So my commander says guess what rank he is. I responded with my rank because its a place to start 10. He responds go lower. So hes rank 8? No try 5. Believe it or not this fella has been using a rental ship in ranked and reached rank 5. After I had the conversation I felt like an [edited]after criticizing rentals in ranked. I know alot of the players in rentals probably shouldn't be there but we as a community shouldn't lump everyone into one label. There are a few great players in rentals. Those few are lost in the anti-rental rants which I was part of. Karma always comes back to get me somehow. Anyways I thought it was an interesting story and had to share it! Cheers and happy sailing!
  18. Me love da spreadsheets and working with the API. I made one that let's me input clan tags and look up the current progress of their players in ranked, what ships they used the most and their win rates. I entered several of the top NA and EU clans and this is where they stand at the moment.

    Rentals in Ranked is GOOD!!

    First off my apologies to WG RENTALS in ranked is good. It's the SAVE A STAR guys that instead of positioning kite away and damage farm instead of killing dds capping and spotting thats ruining ranked. Selfish %@#%!
  20. I've had only two matches with them in there, and truth be told, even though I have the Midway, I wouldn't be in any hurry to bring it into ranked. Why? Because CVs can't do one of the most important tasks in a ranked battle, capping/contesting caps. As it is, with the possibility of running into CVs you'll be seeing a lot of ships with strong AA in matches; Des Moines, Worcesters, Minotaurs, Kremlins, Montanas, etc.
  21. This Gearing never moved or fired a thing from the start of the match, he survived a Zao that tried to kill him but not fast enough and looking at this scoreboard, he got a star. So, what is it? Can people start going AFK on ranked matches and still get stars? If the person didn't contribute to the victory, why give him a star? Maybe it's a visual bug since he got 0 exp even though he received potential damage but he still got a star...
  22. Title says it all. I don't have any tier X ships as of right now and I don't often buy stuff from the premium shop. I also wanted to fully kit out all the Rental ships I could because I wanted to try them out, see how they perform. But there, in the process of equipping those tier X rentals, lies the rub. In order to fill all the equipment slots and equip all the flags I wanted to, I had to burn through 4,500 gold, around a hundred million credits, spend over $150 on said gold and credits, and dip into my limited supply of flags. Frankly, for some ships I'm only going to have for a limited time in a game mode that's only going to be around for the next month, that's a little absurd. I'd much rather it be like one of the years of the Halloween game mode or the original Space Mode, where all the upgrades were basically free. I understand that the game works on a free-to-play model, but that's just it: It's FREE to play. This kind of makes Ranked feel like an Electronic Arts game, where access to something you want is locked behind a paywall, and we all know just how maligned EA is for that practice. I'm guessing that the idea of having Rentals for this season of Ranked is accessibility, but keeping the tier X costs around seems to defeat that purpose. Not everyone can afford a trip to the Premium shop in order to kit out a bunch of rentals, nor is everyone quite as (begrudgingly) willing to spend their hard-earned money as I was. I hope that the next time WG decides to give everyone rentals for Ranked, they learn from this instance and keep the costs low in the name of accessibility. Alright, rant over. If you want to insult me for my apparently monumental idiocy, go right ahead. I've voiced my two cents and that's all that matters. Now I'm going to go watch the Raptors play in the NBA Finals. #WeTheNorth

    PSA: Daring drivers

    To all Daring drivers: In Epicenter rounds, your place is not the 1 and 10 lines, trying to torp snipe ships that are A) Behind rocks, and B) Beyond your torp range anyway, even if they weren't behind said rocks. Your hydro is useless if you aren't actually, you know, within spitting distance of things that, like you, have torpedoes. You are a DD hunter and a capper and defender. You are not, nor will you ever be, a Shimakaze. That is all, thank you.

    DD for ranked?

    Considering CVs can be in ranked, what are the "safe" or best choices for DDs? I don't have patience to try to watch game queue and wait for no CVs. So what DDs I can take into ranked that may have CVs. Starting with the obvious Grozovoi - done. Gearing has DFAA so again obvious choice. What else? Haragumo has dual purpose 100mm guns so pretty decent AA rating even without DFAA. However, no heals, sluggish so hard to maneuver to avoid drops, big target,... Thoughts? Daring - pass? Does have heals. Z-52 pass? Pan asian dude is a pass Looking for thoughts on DDs besides Grozovoi and Gearing. thanks
