Let's say there's this player, that has Current 1100WN8, ~1300 recent who fancies, say an M60, a T95E6, or any other American CW tank, nothing special.

 

Now, we know that to get one of those tanks... you need to be in a very strong clan. 1300WN8 won't cut it to join one.

 

So, the said player has the following choices:

  • Get really good and grow another 1K WN8
  • can't see any other options....

 

The said player is realistic though and realises these things are made to be exclusive. And unfortunately for him/her, improving is a slow process, although taking place.

 

But he would like to get their hands on one of those. What other options does he/she have?


 

Given the nature of the said hypothetical scenario, I'd like to appeal to your common sense and add any berating, "git gud bot" arguments after your constructive answers. Thank you in advance.

To be honest u already said it in your post, they would need to increase there skill level to get into a clan good enough to fight for the rewards, there is no other way around it, it’s get good or get out, especially for cw rewards...

Not that i am qualified but a quick glance at your tank list on wot-life reveals a lack of soviet mediums.

 

If you have more CW staple tanks which you can play well CW clans will like you more. The more roles you can fill the more useful you are. Your best tier X is the batchat but you want to join clans with better BC players so ruski mediums or whatever the CW go to tanks are. 

 

If you don't go deep you go wide.

You need a decent enough clan and campaign rules that benefit smaller clans outside the usuals.

 

On a personal level you (and your clan) need around 1.5+ recents (nothing drastic) and participation into near all the battles (3-4 hours each night for a month) your clan will have and FC's that will put you in those battles. Then there's the matter of having the right tanks and good crews.

 

Or you can try to get into a good enough clan that "sells" roster spots.

1300 wn8 is enough for a clan that gets CW rewards. Just join a clan slightly above your skill level and be very active during the campaign( which means playing every day for a couple of hours). They wont care about wn8 when picking teams, only how you play in the CW battles

This. I regularly run into sub 1300 WN8 players with reward tanks. Once upon a time when the world was still young, CW required skill and dedication. WG slowly removed skill from the list of requirements: CW turned into a grind. One doesn't have to be good, mediocre will do, but one has to play 3-4 hours every night for a month straight. Most clans are in desperate need of grind fodder (err, good and active people), so if you make sure you got the basic tanks, all you really need to do is ask in the clan section of the forum.

 

Never hurts to try and improve, though, so here goes: git gud, scrub. :izmena:

Let's just discuss it from another perspective...which CW vehicle do you think is worth it? and why?

 

M60 and T95E6 ==> Patton is better than both

VK 72 ==> useless, get a S.Q or 5A both are much better

Obj. 907 ==> the king is dead, long live the king. Obj. 430U

 

Not worth it to get involved in this crap tbh. If randoms were about ego then sure but it's about performance. Imagine this...an average player (to be polite) in a 430U rolls over our medium flank in Steppes including a 3 marked 907, it was something. :)

So are clans allowed to pas these out, even to players who didn't paricipate in CW campaing XYZ????

Do they (clans) have some sort of stockpile?

Clans cannot pass them out. But Top Clans have a stockpile (based on points garhered during the campaign) that is used to pass out those tanks. There is however a chance (wildcard) to get one outside the top clans.

One might stop to think that the reason for wanting specifically an American CW reward tank is not to get a competitive tank but to add it to a collection of already existing American tanks. In this case it doesn't really matter if there's a better tech tree tank available.

 

Also, VK is still a good heavy tank.

 

Also, 907 is still better in the hands of a good player. 430U is more forgiving and better when driven by a scrub, but not 3 days ago shishx uploaded a FAME CW battle, and their lineup included 5 907's, and exactly 0 430U's. A lot of 268v4's too. Of the 13 enemy tanks that were spotted, not a single 430U on that side either.

Pay a clan to let you join . If you can't do stats by yourself , you can buy those :)

For collecting tanks sure that'd be a nice addition. A 430U in the hands of a good player performs even better than a 907 hence the insane damage and assistance requirements on the 430U.

 

The VK 72 is a heavy with a rear mounted turret, a big gun with crappy gun handling and a lot of armor in the wrong places so it's situational hardly a good heavy. Almost every post written about this tank includes "no one knows about the gun mantlet weak spot"! :)

The 907 is the only one worth the hassle.

 

 

 

 

 


 

And everyone knows that many clans have spots for sale.... you don't even have to play.... your account will be used by another to farm the necessary fame points and in the end the tank will be there...
