Rename Clan Wars....

Hi all,

I read the forums but don't post much but CW should be called DD wars, that's the way it sounds like it will go.

 

I have 1 T10 ship myself (HMS Minotaur) and not in a clan yet. Not likely to get a chance to play the mino in cw even when I join a clan.

 

I do think the format is wrong, especially to omit one ship class completely. This is a game after all and CV's are a part of the game and should have the same opportunity to participate in CW as any other ship.

 

Anyway have fun, happy sailing and enjoy blowing your enemy out of the water.?

1. It's not even called Clan Wars, it's Clan Battles. I'm not even sure CvC is an official name, it might be a community term.

2. It remains to be seen, but I highly doubt mass-DD teams will do well at all. Cruisers have a lot of firepower at T10, and at the end of the day, an all-DD team can't really hope to fight straight up for a cap.

I am no expert and do not profess to be, but reading how many people on the forums are saying that it will most likely be 6 khab dds, which would be no fun.

 

the format will limit who can play. It will not take long for the top clans to work out what is best and everyone will do the same. Great way to alienate many players.

hi nuttybiscuit,

 

Thanks for the clan recruit pitch. Do you have toffee popcorn or is it just regular?

 

Need the pop to have some crunch and chew.

omitting CV completely is pre-WW2. Having only 1 BB is also not ww1: Let's call CW war, poor man's battle of jutland.

I agree, in fact I often make the joke that the game should be renamed to World of Destroyers. A well played CV is the only truly useful counter to the strategic supremacy of the DD. These clan battles cater to a specific group of players: DD players. This just furthers my belief that if you don't play a DD, WG doesn't want you playing the game at all.

I wont be participating in clan battles, even if that means having to leave my clan.

Here's a secret: most players on the forum are also not experts. I wouldn't expect mass Khab to do well against a meta with a large number of Moskvas or Hindenburgs (in addition to the one battleship per team). They also have no real way to push a Gearing or Z-52 off a cap without getting stuck in a small area where they can't maneuver.

Everybody will try to copy the top teams, that's no surprise. But 99% of the other teams out there are also missing ships, so it's still a relatively even playing field. If not having the perfect flavor-of-the-week-special-super-meta-dominating comp is a deal-breaker for you, well... grind more ships, I guess.

A team of DDs is actually not great, as they have very low HP compared to other classes and they don't have as much damage output as other classes.

Well, before you can sigh a breath of relief, one has to expect the very worst to happen.....and if it does pan out to be as bad as someone predicts it can be then they are the new Nostradamus of the game.   Either way that way of thinking is the only way some of these millennials know how to.  Where it is all about me and we all need medals and accolades for showing up.

Wha????    Over 60% of the matches I play don't have CVs in them.   And destroyers are easily contained.   In fact, they usually go out rather quickly.   The ones smart enough to not move forward until mid-game are the ones that are dangerous.

Yep.   Gonna play it as they offer it, and then make a decision.    Will they adjust for future events?  Likely.

 

The preemptive condemnation only tends to sour the perspective.   They did that with the new Star Trek series - Klingons are Trumpsters, liberal gay crew jumping out, woman power, etc.    Had everyone in an uproar before the show even aired.  Were viewers tainted, regardless of political leaning?  Absolutely.

 

I'll look at this with a clean slate.   Probably won't be what I envision.  It may be fun, it may suck.  Just gonna wait and see.

Funny regardless of what something is nowadays, someone will spin it oftimes with their own soci-political beliefs.  Surprised no one has suggested that the banning of CV's (historically CV's correlate with US global military strength) is a slight by Russian devs protesting Trump's geo-political moves.

I literally can't think of a worse team to bring.  I'm sure someone will try it, but that doesn't make it good.

 

The people suggesting 6 Khabs are either trolling, or very stupid.

How many 7V7ish engagements from WW2 that do not include a CV on either side would you like before you will admit that's one of the dumbest things that anyone has said about CW so far?

 

I'll give you Bismarck sinking the Hood as a freebie.

Ikr? That list is like...70% of the engagements. At least. Ah, the lack of historical knowledge is strong these days.
