Dates:

This next season of Clan Battles will start on November 17th, and end on the 3rd of January next year

Format:

Like previous seasons, this will be as 7v7 battles, this season being Tier 10 ships

Restrictions:

  • Aircraft Carriers will no longer be allowed in battles
  • There can not be more than 2 Battleships per team
  • The team can not include 2 of the same ships.

To diversify the format and to shake up the existing Clan Battles gameplay among Tier X ships, we decided to hold a new season without the Aircraft Carriers. In future seasons, Aircraft Carriers will be available in Clan Battles again.

Further details on 15th Clan Battles season will be announced later.

 

I think this is a great CB season this season (huge upgrade from this past one), no CVs and no Petro spam. What do you guys think?

-I am happy about the no more than 2 ship rule. People have been asking for that for a while; kind of a two birds with one stone kind of issue.

No CVs: already off to a good start. 

Tier 10 again: personally I’d like to see a full season at something besides t10. I’d especially love to see something at t5 or 7, or even t8 with the current and proposed changes (no CV, ship bans and limits, even the no duplicates change if they feel it’s necessary). But at this point I think we’ll all say at least it’s not more t6.

No duplicate ships (I assume combined with the other ship ban option if necessary): that could definitely lead to some interesting ideas. There will still be optimal comps that all of the high tier leagues will run, but expressly limiting duplicates will force some other ships to get used.

T8 would be pretty interesting I have to say. However T5 I really disagree with, and T7 would just be Belfast spam, I don't want to see that...

 I would mind any tiers because they're limiting ships

Or Belfast could just be banned from the beginning, like Graf Spee was this season.

It's actually no more than 1 of any specific ship which is even better imo.

The "2" is no more than 2 BBs.

If there's any chance that faux glorious hallucination of stalinium aircraft carriers won't be playing, then you can automatically discount it. Gotta have something to sell to proles w/ broken dreams. 

 

Ryujo strong, banned. Double Serov? doubly strong, but not banned! See, the trick is this, make sure CB has some gimmicks to ban stuff, then introduce fakeaf trotsky dreambote, make money, then be op team. 

 

So expect broken CB up next again with whatever shiny fake russian cv being broken.

I’ll be interested to see what ship lineup becomes the meta! Will Kearsage (sp?) be available then? You’ll still have the availability of 4x 12 km radars too … Stalingrad, Moskva, Petro and Nevsky.

Some great rules this season.  Tier 10 again, but with no CV's and no more than one of any ship it should be relatively fresh, and with plenty of scope for interesting line ups.  A smart move by WG after the mistake of having another tier 6 season, a tier which just does not work for CB's.

I can't wait to play Ragnar for the season!

double serov isnt as strong as double ark royal this season. Ryujo was however.

Thanks mate! I was wondering if it’d be used for spotting (with planes) to make up for no CV. That answers that question though :cap_like:

Can't be Belfast "spam" since you couldn't bring but 1 of them?

Daring + Vampire II,  Shima + Hayate, Smalland + Halland  If you wish to run those comps, basically same ships.

Salem + Des Moines, I'm sure someone here could cite a complete list of comparables to negate the one each.

I like the idea, though, of no duplicate ships. I hope it shakes things up.

Well there are some must have ships: Smaland, Petro, Des Moines, Kremlin

For the second DD it could be Kleber, Marceau, Yue Yang (for smoke strats), pretty much anything comp viable.

The empty cruiser slot(s) could be Salem, Venezia, Nevsky. Basically you want a DPM cruiser

Other BB slot would probably be Conquerer, Ohio, Colombo, and even Yamato because of her overmatch

The rule for the upcoming season limiting teams to only one of any ship would mitigate this, or Belfast could be outright banned. I’d prefer seasons of T7, T8 or T9 to T10. Alternating a no CV season with CV seasons would be a pleasant change as well.

Yea... I guess we have to savor this season while it lasts.

Hopefully WG will listen to our feedback and like remove CVs from CBs in general. I have some hope for them since they've been taking some small steps in the right direction recently.
