Newbe question. What is the advantage of being in a division?

Are players in a division in voice communication with each other?

Most players in divisions are also in voice chat. It's fun to just shoot the breeze with buddies while playing.

You can be in voice comms yes, and can also chat/text only with your division as well.  

Recently the game introduced some clan divison awards (division stars) for just playing and winning while divisoned with clan mates.   

While not always true, divisons are generally better coordinated in game and spawn together.   

Added as contacts back in port you can see their status - if they are online or in game and chat with them there as well.

Also better communication and higher chance to win as long as you play well.

You get to coordinate with others giving you a significant advantage over complete random teams.   Conversely, If the other team also contains a division you are, at least theoretically, fighting equally instead of at a disadvantage..

Its one significant method to 'game the system' and pad  your WR.

If you care about winning, you have to be careful though. I've seen 42% players div up with their clanmates and this really lowers your chance of winning. The MM will try to match you against another div. Lets say the div you face is 60%. Who wins? This is only for making a div in port. Once you are in the game and you make a div, it really isn't doing anything except creating a special chat box.  But the biggest advantage to being in a div is voice chat where you can plan your attack with other div mates. As long as you're above average, this does increase your chance of winning.

If the people in your division (including yourself)  have at least a basic understanding of strategy and game mechanics as well as how to pick ships that compliment each other you will have the ability to effect the outcome of a match in a bigger way than you would solo.

If you and your div mates have no idea what you are doing, go buy 3 tirpitz and sail them into a match, rush up and die in a blaze of glory it will not be an advantage as there are now 3 ships that need to be carried as opposed to 1.

The very first advantage is you are guaranteed to drop together on the same match

Ship combinations that the players bring to a division can also be an advantage. A DD spotting for a BB with a CA along for protection can have a devastating effect on the red team. With the advent of CV hybrids a Tone, Ise and CV division means coordinated air attacks... something we haven't seen since the old days when a high tier CV could put 6 squadrons in the air.
