Asking again because we never seem to get a definitive answer.

 

1.  Is Persha incapable coding this and putting it in game?

2.  Has WG said no to this due to the current WoWP community?

3.  Has this been designed or is it being designed to be added to the game at some point?

 

For some players this may breathe new life into the game and might even be an opportunity to get some players to return.

 

Give us something!  If you aren't going to put it into the game, just let us know so we don't look forward to something that isn't coming.

 

I suspect I won't get an answer, which just leads me to believe this will not be happening.

Believe it is not happening.  It has been not happening since Beta.

The latest I have seen is Clan activity was written in this thread:

 

http://forum.worldofwarplanes.com/index.php?/topic/54559-news-clan-portal-coming-soon/

 

Now what does this means IDK, the WoWP Devs are tight lipped. If I see anything further, I will get it for you guys.

There's no established plans for the near future to add any kind of Clan Activities except for the planned works on Clan Portal. The developers remember such a request from the Community though, and will be happy to take care of it as soon as other tasks are dealt with.

Hi blindfold!  If we as a community want to take the initiative and set up a community driven clan tournament ( brackets, elimination rounds etc. ) would WG pony up for a prize possibly?  Im not volunteering to run it, just an idea.  Thanks!

They did in the past.  The CM would help...it's been 5+ fricken years..it's time the company actually did something along the lines of e-sports that they've been touting for years instead of the player base..C'mon for jesus's sake..it's pathetic.

Only a very small percentage of the players would do it.  Would there be enough players for this?

Only thing I can say to this is that a good number of players have already left the game due to there being no "end game content"

What do you think specialization is for?

Be sure to check your logic privileges before posting on the forum.

I will assume you are being sarcastic, but just in case, specialization just extends the single player part of the game of you maximizing your aircraft.  Tanks and ships allows users to maximize their vehicles and then allows them to use them in competitive battles.  WoWP is missing the competitive part.

What is your vision?

 

Full teams of tier 10s battling for territory on a global map?

 

Or something like Strongholds at tier 6 with smaller teams?

Not sure about full blown Clan wars, but outwardpanicjoe has organized a couple events in the training room. I just missed the last event and got in as they were ending, but he did extend an offer of any ideas for future events.

 

I really doubt there are enough willing/active/remaining Clan members of any one clan but there could still be a coalition or some sorts....

 

I remember some early events as member of Aces and Grey Wolves, they got pretty intense and competitive but all had fun.

To be fair, there's no point in the CLAN BATTLES!!! so many people keep mentioning until some of the bugs are fixed ensuring that there's a better than 50/50 chance that everyone will actually be able to load into the battle without having to restart the client, missing the first half. Don't get me wrong, yeah they'd be nice to have but... yeah...

I'd also be worried that there wouldn't be enough active players to have real competition beyond 3 or 4 clans unless the player base significantly increases.

Challonge ladder air raids

 

 

Yes Billy, fireworks are a valid “wth” tactic during competitive play.  And Pigeon_Kickers clan wars was a semi-success.

 

If you build it...they will come...with 1.x physics and stability which you had before this pos...mostly :teethhappy:

Or something like Strongholds at tier 6 with smaller teams?

 

To start off, a simple ladder challenge system would be nice.  Even if only two clans at the start participate, they can battle each week for the top spot.  More teams can join whenever they want.  Ladder could run something like this:

1.  A team can challenge the team on the ladder one place above them.

2.  Challenges are made on Tuesday and Wednesday and if defending team doesn't accept and pick day of match, they forfeit.

3.  Matches are played on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday (determined by defending team) during prime time.

4.  Ladder placings get updated on Monday.  Wash and repeat.

5.  At most, a team can end up playing two matches a week, top place team can't challenge so they would only get one defend game, but lower placed teams could get a challenge and a defend.

6.  New teams can join any time, if it is one team, they could challenge the bottom ranked team.  If more than one, they would play each other to see who wins and get placed on the ladder accordingly.

 

That is a very basic ladder system that can run continually and if WG where to do this, I am sure they would get more detailed.

 

As far as I am concerned, the actual match play rules are whatever is allowed in game and use tier 10's.  The simpler the rules are for both the ladder and matches will make it easier for people to participate and may even get some clans that may not be interested in it to give it a try.

 

Tanks clan system is too complicated for the current WoWP environment.  I don't know what ships has (don't play).  The ladder system could work right now in planes and if this game ever did take off, WG could implement something bigger like strongholds or a clan wars map.

 

Edit:  This doesn't work unless WG runs it and it is incorporated into the game.  Player run events like this seem to fall apart and the training room is a no go in my opinion.

Exactly!  But what have they done so far?

 

- remove alpha/beta emblems from 2.x acquisitions

- remove aircraft anniversaries

- muck with meta/physics/sounds/specialization

- about to fix a clan portal that does what exactly seeing as there’s zero clan interplay which this post addresses

- continuously driven the player base smaller and smaller as they flip their finger at vets over the years

- continual staff changes and lethargy after spurts of furious activity by various non-invested entities

 

Did I miss anything?

Yes.  You left out the ridiculous current clan rating system.  It is still primarily based on member ratings from 1.9.  But that was only, what?  14 months ago!  I am sure that they 'are aware of the issue' and are 'working on it'.  After all, they have assured me of this on many occasions in the last year.

This is a combat based system. There is no end game content because there is no real end game. Tier X is just like tier I, II and IV. The simplicity of the combat is the beauty of the game. I play tier III as often as I play tier XIII.
