    Isn't the deck kinda stacked against the US team getting players, since they get 1 team point for 750 base XP, while IJN get 2 team points for 1250 base XP?

Seems IJN can rack up points with better players way faster than USN.  I can't join IJN because I'm US!

Hmmm hard to say. I suspect many more players will join USN. Much more easy to hit 750, particularly for the average player. I think most players will rack up points faster with USN. 

Having said that I went IJN just in case I can not play that much this weekend. 1250xp for me is not guaranteed but should not be too hard.

Just saw it on the WOW news when I started up the game a couple minutes ago.

I wanted to pick IJN but I just remembered I don't have mid tier IJN ship and Shinonome is a big no in the current meta.

 

 

Oh well I guess I'll go with USN and Atlanta...that's sad

I'm considering IJN since I already have the Yamato and this is an opportunity to continue grinding other IJN ships.  I have that option on the USN side as well but I need to decide soon.

Nope the IJN doesn't stand a chance!  The USN will reign supreme just as it did in the original Marianas Turkey Shoot!  :cap_rambo:

I know that, I was implying that since I already have a line finished that I could continue to grind other lines in the IJN towards ten.  The Cruiser and DD lines are only at tier 6 for me.

Also, I consider the notion that one national line of players is better than other.  I've seen enough dumb plays by many people across different ships to know better.  Most especially when you consider that there is nothing stopping people from playing multiple national ship lines.

I predict the opposite, and that things are stacked against the IJN.

First of all, most players are potatoes. And this may sway them into picking the USN since getting 750 xp is obviously easier than getting 1250xp. For a below average player, it's smarter to try getting 750 xp for 1 point, than trying for the harder 1250 xp and possibly failing and getting nothing.

Second of all this is the North AMERICAN server, and for obvious reasons players on the USN team is going to outnumber the IJN. It's just a question of how heavily. On this server at least, the US team is going to have sheer weight of numbers on its side. It might be closer on the EU server.

2 points for a win in an IJN ship means nothing, if a far bigger US team outnumbers them 2-3 to 1 and has an easier target to reach.

IJN Ships are much weaker... it will be a massacre.

EDIT: Oh wait it is an event thingy (I have better things to do than grind my weekend in Wow)..boo..I thought we would actually be playing battles between all us and all IJN ships...

Let's see here...  Tier IV-VII

 

Currently in-port  (I sold off all my tech-tree ships):

IJN --  Ashitaka and Mutsu.  

USN -- Ark, TX, WV41, AZ, Monaghan,  ATL, and Indianapolis.   

 

'taka sounds like fun.  But my gut is telling me to go with ATL.

I think you guys are reading the info wrong

the prizes are split between USN and IJN, so you're only competing against players who picked the same team.

Members of the winning team do get two extra crates though.

I have a good idea how this will end. I mean USA (with it’s allies) did this with one arm tied behind its back (Europe).

Let the trash talking begin!

I'm kind of ashamed of picking the USN for this one, but I have a lot more USN ships I am interested in playing than IJN.

1 point for a win.  Doesn't matter which side.

That doesn't answer my question.
