    What I recently did is putting the game voice-overs on "national". Improvement on all non-US tanks.

    The campaign/event is finished, so it's back to Tier 10s for Clan Wars....lol

    We reached the battle with owner, but got out-capped.

    You are in a clan? Does this require a huge online presence? Does it improve the gameplay in context of "kind of players"?
    I have been thinking of joining a clan because of lousy random battles of late.

    Short answer is no, if you are in a clan and doing random battles you will still get quite a few lousy battles. If you platoon with the clan and go at it you know at least 2 others are decent players but it does not help in randoms. Now with Team battles and Clan wars it is a totally different experience because you are with clan mates and on teamspeak or vent and communication is vital. Online presence differs between all clans, where some require weekly meetings to remain in the clan where others do not, most would like you to commit to some battles whether it is team battles, clan wars or now stronghold stuff. Oops I forgot skirmishes too. Some clan participation is required. I normally play on west coast servers but if you would like a clan invite to figure things out if you like or not hit me up some time flmatter or ask around with other TPU members if you can be accepted into their clan.

    I got an ok mic so vent/teamspeak etc. should not be a problem. Because of potential lag and time zone issues I prefer to stay within the EU. What the clans ask of me communitywise can be checked by asking clan chiefs I guess. I still may need to read up on SHs etc. though, and grind onto higher tiers for my tanks since the Matilda and Birch Gun are not serious enough and I play best with them (although I am trying to optimise my playstyles for the KV-1 and the SOMUA SAu 40).

    Thanks for the offer for an invitation BTW, although US West is not a practical region for me neither your clan.

    I was unsure of your region and just threw it out there. Yes almost all clans require certain tiers particularly pushing Tier 8 and 9 some prefer 10 and a working mic/headset. You can research clans on WoT website for your region. Biggest thing I can stress is look for one that matches or closely matches your online time. I have been in clans where I had to change my lifestyle to participate with them. I was in a clan once where they were 3 hours a head of me and had meetings and training at 8pm their time, so I was basically getting home from work and jumping straight on the computer because I did not want to miss clan meeting or training or battles. Yea that did not work out so well because I had to work late a few times and people in charge started yelling at me because I was missing meetings and battles because of my work schedule and time zone, I left pretty quick after that. It is just a game and real life comes first. So now I get home, do the family thing and dinner then when daughter goes to bed I hit Wot or Diablo 3 or fire up xbox360 for a little me time before nightie nights. Best of luck

    There are casual clans and "serious" clans. If you want the latter, then make sure you have high-tier tanks, although of course even the other tiers are important especially with Skirmishes already introduced, and that last event for Clan Wars is limited to tier 8s (max).
