It seems that they are trying to pull interest to WOT from WOWP, which I would say is the opposite of what their goal should be since the WoWP clans have no access to these options other than being sent to a guide when we click on the links provide. I believe that this will only increase the frustrations of the clans. If they would set up the skirmishes and global map it would go along way towards reinvigorating interest in the game.
Also I believe they should return to the 3 plane flights and the set up clan multi member team skirmish's would increase interest in clan membership as well. As I understand it in there Developers video release they knew the response to this was mostly negative but they were doing it to make their auto search for flight members option work because they could not make it work with 3 plane flights. I have tried the auto search for flight member 5 times with no matches coming up, though after 5 to 7 minutes of waiting I canceled it. This leads me to believe either it still does not work properly or that no one is using it in which case Get Rid of It and return the 3 plane flights and add the multi member clan skirmish's.
I believe they would get better results by introducing a general/server wide chat channel for people to get to know each other and exchange tips. People would rather play a game when they know other people playing and to do that they need to be able to communicate in a group setting where they will meet people that they do not know. There have been several attempts by players to popularize common channels, however I do not believe that it will be successful until Wargaming sets up a general channel like they have in WoT.
