This is going to be exciting!

 

I also wonder if we're going to have a Robin Hood clan out there giving provinces to province-less clans :P

Indeed.  You can always go back to them when it's over.  Do you want some camo and gold or not ?

Would be nice if players that isn't in a clan could also participate in this somehow and earn some gold. Maybe players that are not in a clan can join up in a wolf-pack and raid the convoys? Or, players without a clan could have a private stronghold which they can build up and get some gold from? Just suggestions, but it would be nice if you considered this since not all players can join a clan because of the activity requirements but they'd still like to earn a bit of gold.

why dont you want to be in a clan and still engage in clan activities? Sound really, really weird to me. What's so difficult about joining a clan?

Doesn't have to be clan activites, as I said, anything corresponding to clan activities, but for players without a clan, that allows them to earn some gold, would be fine.

1) All decent clans that actually make it worth the time to participate in global map etc have way too high requirements. If we look at WN8 do judge my skill, I'm considered above average, yet every single clan has requirements that are far above mine.

 

2) All decent clans have requirements to be active within certain time frames during the evening. For players with irregular real-life schedule and/or activites that might collide with these times makes it impossible to fulfill that condition.

I don't think that 2 times a week is enough to be in a semi-ambitious clan. They have limited slots and won't be interested in someone just passing by to get some gold.

You know I always hear the excuse that "there are plenty [of clans]" bla bla bla, but you know what? I think that excuse is BS. If not, give me the name of atleast 1 clan that are decent enough to make the gold received worth the time investment, and that accepts english speaking players, and that has a weekly requirement of 2 days per week. You know I didn't write that it's difficult to find a clan that makes it worthwhile just because I wanted to complain. I've actually tried to find one myself not long ago. Take a look in the reqruiment threads. All decent clans have atleast 2500-3000 minimum WN8, and most of them want an activity of 4 days peer week. As I said, according to WN8 I'm an "above average" player, yet the requirement are far above my stats, and no, I have a real life aswell, I can't promise a clan that I will play with them at the same time 4 days a week every week from now on. I can't make such promise when I have no idea what ends up in my schedule next week or the week after that.

Hello!

 

This new system seems interesting, just few details still missing, i think.

For example:

Are there any limit at the alliances based by the clan numbers?

What i think:

As we can see in the video, there are at least 3 level in any alliances.

In the description we can read that, a major can have 3 sub clan.

These sub clans -based on the video- still can have sub clans.

Is this the limit, or these sub-sub clans still can make sub clans, or the video is wrong, and only 4 clan can be in one alliance?

 

I hope we can find answers before the start.

I think, it is just want to say that, you can play only T8 in T8 fronts, and with T10 in T10 front, so, there is no way to play with T9 tanks in T10, and with T7 in T8. Because long time age, it was allowed, to help more players to be able to play cw (and this system still exist in NA server).

TBH, I'm not sure there are any ... at all.

 

How much gold do the highest earners in the very best clans get ?  Players with Personal Ratings of 11,000 and WN8s of 4,000.

 

Look at the last Season https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/clan-wars/recap-season-9-global-9/

 

The Winners, CSA, earned 600k gold.  If spread evenly over the 100 players that's 6,000 each.

But look down at places 10-20 ... 50k-125k, so 500 - 1000 gold each.

 

Even if only a small proportion of the 100 in the clans got gold, it's still not a huge amount.

 

Note also that the most active players played 75-80 battles over 6 weeks.  That's 2 a day ... The most active players in the whole season.  3 of the top 5 are in E1SEN and they have an entry requirement of 1000 WN8.

 

I've now taken part in 6 seasons where my clan won gold and I received ~800 gold in total, for probably 200 battles.

 

So my recommendation/thoughts are that gold is a bonus for a mode that is exciting to play.  In my clan there are CW battles every night, usually at 8(:15) and 9(:15) and if you are on you are welcome to play and if you're not on, then you're not on.

Your WN8 is 1500ish.  As such you will have no real trouble getting into a 1500WN8 clan, you'd probably find a 2000 clan that will take you but you'll struggle to get into a 2500 clan.  That's not surprising and is true for all of us.

 

The very best clans, that are always full and have a constant stream of new applicants, will have quite aggressive participation requirements (it's better to have a good player who's on all the time than an excellent player who is never on).

But most clans with WN8 requirements below 2000 actually struggle for players.

 

In summary, a player with your stats and play rate would have no problem getting into a clan that would earn you some gold. 

 

Whether it would be worth the effort depends largely on whether you enjoy the game or see playing on comms, under the orders of an FC, as a chore.

I agree that the broken chat is a massive inconvenience to a whole variety of aspects of the game, not just the upcoming CW.

 

WRT the new alliance feature, I've wondered how it will actually be useful.

 

I now suspect it will be used by "communities" rather than random groups of clans.

 

So, CSA/CSA2, FAME/FAIME, QSF/QSF-X/Y/Z/etc, B-C/B1C/B2C, etc., groups like that.

There are tournaments for that. Even 1v1 variants, so you can participate without friends. Or wait for Ranked, league spots also had some gold rewards attached.
