Strike Groups

 

 

A unique gameplay mode not currently offered in Warships. Currently Carrier gameplay is either solitary 1v1 or unorganised 2v2 (Tier 7 and below) matches in random battles. In “competitive” game modes Carriers are excluded from Clan Battles and in King of the Sea, the Carrier is relegated to a glorified scout unable to effectively strike (until very late-game) due to the hostile Anti-Air & Defensive fire nature of Tier 8-10 gameplay.

There is no gamemode similar to the Battle of Midway for example with organised Strike groups battling it out against each other. So lets make our own then!

 

In this 3CV1BB game mode, the Strike Group must learn to work together in the chaotic battle-space on April the 28th 2018!

 

 

The Gameplay ruleset is a little different from anything done before.

 

Team composition:

  • Teams must consist of three carriers and one battleship

  • All ships must be Tier 7

  • Maximum of two Premium ships allowed per team

  • Each premium must be unique (ie one of each only)

  • Hiryu and Saipan must played in a “Balanced setup”

    • Hiryu 2-2-2, Saipan 2-2-0

    • Teams that bring 3-1-2 or 3-0-1 setups will forfeit that game!

 

Tournament format: (Glossary; Game = Single battle between two teams, Round = Best of 3 played games)

  • 16 teams in a single elimination format tournament on the European Server

  • Each round of the tournament is played in a Best of 3 games format

 

Maps:

  • Both teams play as North and South on the map “Okinawa”

  • Tiebreaker (1-1 score) games are played on the map “Ocean”

 

Game format:

  • Battles take place in the "Training Room"
  • Game mode is “Standard Battle” with 20 minutes gametime

  • Teams must take screenshots of the match result to help resolve any disputes

  • At least one member of a team must have replays enabled to help resolve any disputes

  • Teams can swap lineups after each game

  • Teams can “gg” to admit defeat in a game

  • Game Victory conditions;

    • Sink all enemy ships

    • Capture enemy base

    • Win by ingame points if 20 minutes gametime expires

  • If a Draw occurs (equal points after 20 minutes) neither team scores a point

    • If score is 1-0 and a draw occurs neither team scores a point. The team with 1 point wins the best of 3 (tiebreaker is only for 0-0 or 1-1 scores)

    • If first game ends in a draw, the winner of the second game wins the best of 3 (tiebreaker is only for 0-0 or 1-1 scores)

      • If the second game results in a draw the Tiebreaker is played (ie 0-0 score after two games)

    • If a tiebreaker game ends in a draw the winning team is decided by most enemy planes killed

      • In the highly unlikely event a tiebreaker ends in a draw and both teams have equal enemy plane kills… I’m going to flip a coin.

 

Teams signup:

  • Teams can sign up via our Discord, or in this thread

    • (only requests after 7th April 09:00 CEST will secure a position in the tournament)

  • Sign up is on a first come basis

  • Teams sign up as either from a Clan group or a custom named team

    • (ie multiple teams from one clan or members from multiple clans coming together to form one team)

  • Teams can be no larger than 5 players (4 active & 1 reserve)

  • Teams that sign up must provide a roster of their members

  • No player can play for more than one team/clan

 

Discord: Discord is the main platform for answering questions and posting updates for teams. At least one of your team members must be available on discord. You can join using this link

  • First place is awarded a Tier 7 Premium Battleship or Aircraft Carrier of choice
  • Second place is awarded 25 x FTW Camouflage + 25 x Hydra signal
  • Third place is awarded 7 days premium (bonus code)

 

Schedule & Stream:

  • Entire tournament takes place over Saturday the 28th April 2018
  • First Round starts at 14:00 CEST with the Finals ending no later than 20:00 CEST
  • Estimated Round Start times can be found here

While I'm absolutely no CV player (and being the Glorified Target BB in this format doesn't sound massively appealing at first glance...), I would certainly be interested in watching this - it's one of the more unique things we've seen so far! :Smile_great:

Probably going to run with a 5 minute delay myself, recommend you do the same. Stream sniping to see where your bombers are would be bad :)

I would be interested to play in this. However, I am having a hard time finding CV playing clanmates who feel the same. If anyone wants a CV player or would like to form a team, PM me :)

Have you asked on my discord? you may find some people to complete your team. I think we have 4 spots left last time I checked.

We now have 16 teams. But you can still signup on the waitlist in case a team can't start. A schedule and team seeding will be posted soon(ish).
