  1. WoTCS has this really cool feature that shows membership changes. It shows where the new members came from and where other members have left too. If you dig around somewhat, you'll begin to see that most top clans are filled with players who are shuffling around moving up the food chain. Take SCDRL for example. They benefited greatly from the BT implosion, so much that we could say the clan is ~20-30% BT. Not to mention that SCDRL itself is a rebuild of UF. NOSHT is another young clan, but in reality it's all the CWs active players from Enjoy, Enjoy2, and X-Sight. Heck, even those new TTIME guys are largely from BOX. So is NOSHT the story of a small clan making it big? Or is NOSHT simply "EnjoyLite?" Perhaps an over-simplification, but my point is that the CWs-competitive clans are built around highly experienced individuals who have been doing this for some time.
  2. Happens. Anyways, about your clan search. I've done this "I wonder what is the best clan I could get into?" -which is what I assume you're doing? If so, one good tool is WoTcs. Like most every stats/ranking site it has it's flaws; notably WN7 is no longer used. But you can find a clan you see on the map a lot, look up the clan averages and see where you'd fall within the clan. Then lurk their recruitment threads like I said so you can get a sense of what the clan is looking for. I can't speak for the recruitment standards of other clans, but NUGGS is probably one of your better bets. Solid group of guys who have been around for some time.
  3. I remember your CR/D thread on leaving KISS.... bleh. Anyways, best bet is to lurk various recruitment threads both on here and on the main forums. They'll have the min requirements up and you can generally get a sense of where you'll fit.
  4. That's a pretty good list there hallo, although I believe Foxey has recently bumped it's requirements up. With that being said, NUGGS is pretty solid (used to be known as GSKUL), they're laid back but hold land. JIMBO is more of a raiding clan although it seems they've been holding land longer. Looking into the RDDT clans can never hurt, they've got so many there has to be a clan where you'd get what you're looking for.
  5. Why even give you an opportunity? Besides, you can learn a lot on here by reading, no posting required
  6. If you drink enough robotussin it starts to make sense.
  7. You win my everything.

  9. I had never heard this one before, yet it explains all those pubs that fire into the ground at the start of battle. Maybe I should try it....
  10. Sometime back I was platooned with a dude who was convinced that his shots were missing/bouncing because the player he was shooting at (a Havok purple player) was using WarPack. He argued that his shots were fine when firing at other players, but that whenever he fired at the Havok player his rounds would bounce or fly off target because WarPack somehow shielded this Havok tank. Real stuff.
  11. It actually would've been fun, but alas even organizing a 7/42 proved impossible. Turns out those who join a clan called Loner tend to be anti-social. :/
  12. It seems to me you that you are approaching this issue solely with a stance on evaluating player skill via comparison. While that is conceptually what any rating system is for, it isn't the system's singular purpose and I think this is why you are meeting so much resistance in this thread. For example, if I'm tracking my progress up this rating system, and one site gives me +2 for a set of games played for a night while another site give me +8, while both are using the same rating system, I would be suspect as to the integrity of either of the site(s) and/or rating system. Is there a significant skill difference between a player with 1800 overall vs 1803? Certainly not. 1800 vs 1860? Arguable. But if I put this in another frame; I will be blue on noobmeter/MyWoTStats/WoTNews by 1900. This blue color code is suppose to represent being in the top 10% of players vs top 30% for green (Or is it top 25%? I forget). The fact I'll hit this milestone on noobmeter probably ~1000-1200 battles before I hit it on WoTLabs is fairly significant in my mind. Again, I want to stress that I assume WoTLabs has the correct formula/implementation due to the WN8 authors maintaining a presence on this site vs other sites. So I don't use the other, better signature nor do I base my progress off of it.
  13. I actually noticed this difference from when WoTLabs initially launched WN8. When I asked in the thread announcing it, Neverwish responded that it was due to Noobmeter using a different, older tank table. I assume WoTLabs is correct due to the fact the authors of it have a thread in these forums. However, while some people are only +/-5 points as you seem to point out, some of us have greater disparities. MyWOTStats (same as noobmeter for me) WotLabs Noobmeter has been +70 for me for some time now, hardly a minor change. My buddy actually has +20 on WoTLabs over Noobmeter. So yeah... there is something odd with it despite your insisting to dismiss it as insignificant.
  14. "Because shitron isn't fast. Shit tron only does 15" lul
  15. Thank you! I'm actually surprised by how quickly it grows, already at 70 now.
  16. I posted the WoTcs... If you look, you'll see we are ~80% potato. Besides that, the whole reason behind the clan is to escape the demands of CW. So no, no CWs.
  17. And yes I am aware WoTlabs is probably the last place to find players interested in this clan, but eh. I also use my authority as Recruiter for a crapclan to wardec Spartan96 for being a big meanie.
  18. EDIT: I AM NO LONGER A PART OF LONER, HOWEVER I LEAVE ON GOOD TERMS AND WILL KEEP THIS UP FOR INTERESTED FOLKS LONER was started by Thundersleet for the purpose of having clan tags for the April mission. It has also become a place for those who wish to avoid being spammed with clan invites and PMs. At 66 members, we have a wide range of skill within our playerbase - and complete lack thereof: http://wotcs.com/clan.php?wid=1000014724 There are no stat requirements to join. No meetings, no minimum activity requirements. Any load and leavers, suspected bots, etc, will of course be kicked. Otherwise it's a free-for-all filled with friendless autists.
