    US Cruiser Changes - How will you be affected

    Ok can I put in another scenario. I have Pre Spilt. Owned T6 Cleveland T7 Pepsicola T8 NO Researched but not bought T9 Baltimore T6 - T8 should be the same as previously - buit what happens to the T9 researched - DO I end up with 2 T9 ( CA and CL) researched but not bought? Would I in fact be better off selling the Pepsi and Buying the Baltimore? and having T6, T8 and T9 before the split?

    Rank season 9 Discussion

    Not enjoyed this season - not so much because of MM or even ship buffs / nerfs - more that some teams are just so rubbish. I can take poor aiming skills if people are trying but am fed up with the number players that don't know their own job or won't go along with the team plan. I have played Z23 and Tirp ( rank 15) this season and see other DD's not willing to attempt caps, hiding in own smoke and not spotting. I see Bismarcks and Tirpitzs camping / trying to snipe at 18k - with the dispersion on German shells good luck. Players don't seem to want to win - they want to manage their own figures for damage. Was in a game yesterday - we had one surviving low hp DD v a med hp Bismarck 12k away - all the caps, ahead on points and ticking down the last minute. All he needs to do is run away from the Bismarck. What does he do - turns to engage - fires guns at about 9k and gets raped by the Bismarcks secondaries and we lose. A game today - heavy BB lineup both sides - we outnumber in brawlers - lets rush A and use secondaries is agreed - 2 BB's wonder off and start trying to snipe leaving the other 2 stuck - either turn and come back, press on against 2v1 odds or back out slowly and be a sitting duck. If you don't like the plan - fine - but speak up - say - actually - lets camp and snipe - not just let 1/2 your team go in thinking they have backup and not be there.

    Looking for Clan for ClanWars and Fun!

    Have a lookt at HHOTN. WE play Clan Battles most nights that they are on, we like to win and try to win but having fun is more important than winning at all costs. We got into Gale league last time from scratch ( new clan) and hope to climb higher. Own skill is not that important, as long as you're mature about playing, turn up whwn you say you will and are not totally useless then you should be fine. We do insist on using Discord - voice during CB and would like people to be on Discord the rest of the time to jump into Div. Let us know if you want to speak some more. Have fun

    Keen to join. Have 1 T9 ( Fletcher) 5 T8 9 T7 4 T6 1 T5 Coming up to 3500 battles now but only 47% WR and Damage / XP per battle not great. I think might be due to the fact that my client was corrupted for a while so while i could launch a battle the client then crashed so I appeared AFK!!! and could do nothing. I am grinding multiple lines - keen to get all of them to T10. Favourite lines are US BB, UkCL, Most DD's ( especially US) also Gneisenau - got to love a brawler! Have Discord and would like more division / clan battle play. Did a few CBs in current clan but no interest now.

    I assume then that you play mainly T10 where I agree, issues against same tier ships are manageable But if you play T8 it changes. I was just in a Random game as a T8 Cruiser. What does MM serve up? 6 T10 ships per side and 3 T9 and 3 T8. I assume it's a T9 game - This is very common - I'm mainly a T8 player and when I see T10 it's usually 1/2 the fleet. That should not count as a T9 when 1/2 the fleet on each side is T10. I lasted longer than most T8 but when a Zao for example can do 4k damage per shell to you when you are barely in range - what do you do? As a T8 in that situation - you are the target. Fine that we all are from time to time but playing T8 you are the target more often than not. That means you either run away fro combat and your time looses or you hover on the edge of combat, sniping from the wings and hope that you're on the flank where you outnumber the enemy, The issue as I see it is that the player base will gradually get more and T10 ships as they get experienced. Those players get 19 point captains and better / more upgrades that the player still grinding through and it's now at the point where you have 3 options. 1) Hope the T10 players stop playing once they get T10 and all research done - Hardly a likely option. 2) Accept that T8 players will get beat up by being in matches with shed loads of T10 - not good for the long term health of the game as it may drive some players away 3) change MM to bring some fairness back - not just between teams but within matches, My own suggestion would be: 1) For all games - limit the number of ships not in the correct game tier to no more than 2 - i.e. T9 = max 2 Tier 10, 2 Tier 8 and 8 T9. Maybe flex that if people waiting too long. 2) For all games - MM too spend the first say 1 minute trying to assemble teams of just 1 tier - so for a T7 game, MM just selects T7 in for the first 1 minute. If it can make a match, then great, If not then it looks at T6 and T8. 3) Look again at including T10 in lower tier matches. My experience suggests we have more T10 active ships than any other Tier so maybe for a T9 match, only draw on T10 if all other matches have been tried - so it would go - 1st miniute of waiting - try and assemble from T9. After 1 Minute -Include T8 as well but add any further T9 that join. After a further minute then look to make the numbers up with T10. Hopefully by giving MM the dedicated time to assemble teams of just the Tier that you're playing, it will enable better play.

    T8 MatchMaking 55% TopTier (SubOctavian's recent comment)

    Fully agree with that. I find that often half the team are T10 and i'm sat there in a T8. I could cope if the majority of the fleet were T9 with an occasional T10 and T8 but too often it can look like a T10 game, not a T9 game that has been filled with some random T10 and T8 to make up the numbers If you then make the assumption that those T10 ships have 19 point captains whilst i'm still grinding mine and the gap seems even larger. I know that I rarely wait very long at all to get into a game and then when I do I'm outtiered. My own preference would be for MM to take longer to make the actual games so that the ships were closer matched and then to also place limits on how many ships of each tier are in the game. So for example a T9game should be say 50-60% T9 and 20%-25% T10 or T8. You could even make that more dynamic - so for first 30 seconds MM will only assign T9 ships. If it makes a match - great. If still spaces it will add say 1 T10 and 1 T 8 to each side. If now up to 1 minute then will add 2 T10 and 2 T8. Wait another 30 secs and add a 3rd. At least that way you are giving MM a chance to build teams of the same tier and minimising the up-tiering that it has to do.

    The point about that though is that in Random very few players want to work together - fine for T10 players who often have a clue - and even in ranked where thee is more reason to win and arguably more better players but in random it's mostly every man for himself. If you then luck out on MM and get to be the sole T6 BB in a side packed with T8 as well ......
