The first season of clan battles went great and was fun. Hopefully the set up can be changed up in the future with the possibility of different tiers and maybe the introduction of CV's so that CV mains won't be left out.  If that won't be happening, I thought the set up went fine for this season. It would be nice to see different set ups. If any of you have some ideas what WG could do for the next clan battles season, leave a comment! See you all next season!

I would like to honor and salute the following clans for great sportsmanship and fair play; SALTY, ZR, STW, -K-, MIA, SF-3, -QP-, CUTE, and so many more. Thank you all for a fun season!

We didn't fight against any of you (or that I recall), but was fun, we had a ball and are satisfied with our progress in season 1.

Pity about a certain number of clans successfully rigging their standings via manipulation of sub clans, clan transfers and so on, with no visible refereeing or public evidence of sanctions to discourage unfairplay and bad sportsmanship. Reflects badly on WOWS and WG.

It was interesting to say the least.  My clan didnt field a team every day it was available, but when we did, it was a lot of fun.

Last night we made it into Storm League which was pretty cool.  :Smile_honoring: to all involved.  Good times.

For those clans which were not in the upper reaches of practice....

The tier structure; separation of lower skill priority clans from upper ones, made play a lot more bearable.

We got the ports filled out with 'stuff' as that was our intention all along.

Better players?  Maybe a little.  Discounts are nice though.

....

Since the unicum players don't need any of these 'port discounts':

I'd imagine those clan slots can go up for sale so 'Wallet Warriors' can buy their way into savings. 

Maybe even rename the clan to 'PVE Potatoes Galore' to obscure the label.

Unicums can always start new clans and make it all back...  rinse and repeat.

But this didn't happen, instead it was exploited, by crappy sub clans being filled with unicum players to seal club lower ranked clans while sniping points off higher ranked clans. Unbearable.

I keep hearing about this..  I'm having trouble understanding what is going on.

SUB-CLAN ????? 

My understanding is that each player is only allowed to be a member of ONE clan at a time.

Each clan can field several teams that play in Clan Battles, but these teams are counted as part of that clan.  This 'second team' doesn't start over at the bottom.

----

OK.  Whenever my clan gets wiped out, I look up the opponent.  Sometimes I see high win rate players on that team with over 200 clan battles, while the clan battle count is only 50.

Are you saying these players are 'employed' on other clans as hired-guns?

Or are you implying they are creating many new independent clans and filling the ports - so they can sell them later?

Maybe a little of both?

Players can transfer back and forth between clans quasi immediately, without limit.

So simply requiring a player to contribute... say... 50 oil before engaging in clan battles would put a price tag on the venture. 

They'd have to buy Yamamato containers to make one switch.   That's one way to make it more painful.

I've been dropped by my clan, just to be picked up again a week later.   Oil contributed goes to ZERO.  Had to start over to get the benefits.  Clan keeps the oil.

Learned a lot, got yelled at, potatoed hard, carried a few, actually had a lot of fun. Got to play against a lot of the top tier clans, won some, lost some, but good sportsmanship mostly.

I also would like to see more variety in tiers and maps.

I dont know what the player counts were like, but it was pretty frustrating to be playing a lot of Typhoon teams while still in gale and storm.

Didn't much care for the time restrictions, but again, player base questions.

The clan battles was extremely fun, I just hope they improve it in a few different ways.

One big one for me is possibly upping the players in battle. Raising the battleship cap to 2 or aircraft carrier to 1 would be huge.

And i'll also add on to Kev's remark

Our clan was no where near as amazing as other clans. but when ever we'd get to "Struggle for Storm", the battles we'd always be facing Storm and Typhoon clans. We were out skilled and was never able to progress. Not saying that I was angry that we were beaten by amazingly skilled players but I thought the Match making would care a bit more about placing Typhoon clans to bully Gale clans. 

That's all. over all we never gave up and had a fun time.

Actually this didn't happen as much as you would think and was almost immediately put to a stop when it was found out. There was no definitive proof that that was the intention of said clan but they didn't really get away with it in the end.
