    Do higher tiers award more XP?

    They do award you more xp but it is not linear with the xp grind, in other words as you go up the tiers you require more battles with the ships to upgrade them and research further. So if you require only 30k xp to research a tier 6 ship which is possible in around 20-25 games assuming you don't use flags. You'll need around a 100 games to grind the tier 10s even tho' your base xp is significantly higher.

    You want lobbies in wows. Right... I used to play this game, League of Legends.. ages ago, they had to address an issue where players would tend to pick your role even if you called it first. So they created a lobby system where in you pick your roles and build a team, they very imaginatively called it "teambuilder" it took forever to get a game because of the amount of control players had over the lobby. This will be the same in wows should a lobby be implemented and we will only end up in a game with either sucky dds or no dds at all based on what you say. Secondly, radars don't last that long, I've seen dd players work around it by having an avenue of escape, is it not a skill that a dd player is able to successfully evade detection if he wanders into radar range? Besides the amount of sway a dd holds in each battle is insane enough already and the longer the match goes on for the harder it is to find a dd and kill it. The smolensk is a ridiculous ship that shouldn't even exist in the game. It literally has a big fat area denial and is capable of stopping an entire flank by itself, the worceser is somewhat annoying but atleast I can deal with it since it doesn't have smoke and here you are, wanting it to be on par with a smolensk? Ah yes, the conqueror. Because her guns aren't annoying enough already, lets also turn her into an HE variant of the yamato so no matter what you do shells will never shatter and automatically cit you for AP damage, you also are unable to repair conq's HE damage and fire chance is 100% on each shell. /s. On a serious note, I think her guns are fine. Hardly anyone uses the bigger guns on the GK, those shells miss even at 10km range on a broadside reversing cruiser, don't compare a gk to other ships, her shells, fired from the same turret have the insane ability to reach two different corners of the map if you were at the center. Apologies for any misunderstanding there are several instances where I couldn't fully understand what you're trying to say so I hope I understood them correctly, feel free to correct me otherwise.

    Uhm. Juuuust a tad off topic. I have gotten back to playing this game again after ages. Suffice to say the fact that aa is utterly useless took me a while getting accustomed to. Anyways, I ended up finishing off my german cruiser grind and got my hands on the hindenburg and today I decided I'd aim for the usn cruiser lines. I have the phoenix and I started up a game, my first low tier game in forever. Suffice to say, was quite shocked to see 2 CVs on each team having 90% impact on the game. Its not fun when you have 2 CVs focusing you down in a tier where aa is almost non existent. Which would explain why there are so many cv players down at tier 4. I figured, well I'm atleast doing some damage and getting above 1k xp even on a defeat I may as well go for the omaha, whats the worse that could happen. *takes a deep breath* The very next game MM gives me the finger and puts me in a tier 5 match, which is.. whatever, more damage and xp for me although what infuriated me was the fact that THERE WERE 6 FREAKING CARRIERS IN THAT GAME... At Tier 4!! WHY? And there is a HUGE gap between the inexperienced players who, bless them, are trying to learn cvs and what I could assume are either stat padders and/or experienced players grinding down the CV lines. I can... kind of accept the fact that I cannot do anything if the CV has decided to target me so at tier 8/9/10 where I usually play this is.. bearable to say the least. HOWEVER, WTF am I to do when there are 3 freaking carriers on the enemy team, you're half dead trying to win your flank and you and your bb buddy are now closing in on those 3 CVs and they just delete you. NO counterplay whatsoever, I swear the fact that I felt so helpless at that point watching all my ships aa light up at planes in all directions knowing that no matter where I turn or slow down I am going to die just because those 3 players decided I'm too close to them for comfort. How on earth did this bloody rework get past the QA? And my issue at hand that I'm trying to address, if you've made CVs THIS effective, WHY ARE THERE 6 CVs in one game.... AT TIERS 4 and 5? Seriously wtf? Suffice to say I free xp'd the remaining 8k I had left, I really couldn't tolerate that bs.
