    "Mighty Prinz" Campaign

    When is this actually due to end? I count no less than 3 dates for getting the ship. 22nd, 29th and the 30th. I like the idea of directives, I dislike the fact the very last one which is situated when we are all back to work is the most grindy and has proven very difficult for me to achieve. One, having just come back into the game I didn't have many of the newer additions to the game and two, I tend to play late at night which pretty much limits me to co-op since there are so few players on. I've done 5 of the 6 required, but since I have no real French ships and the income from my single tier V is so low and I'm left with a couple of premiums for the remaining factions it seems a complete waste of time for 5 weeks. Add that to the utterly dire loot boxes you rolled out with their useless contents and I have a funny taste in my mouth that reminds me off....

    Is WoWS becoming as Toxic as WoT?

    Just came back after a years break, decided to get used to the game again with Legends coming out. The game is about the same as it has always been. Same people picking one player to whinge at about losing when the entire team was more or less to blame. Does seem to happen the higher up you go. It is still quite rare, the problem is our brains are far more likely to focus on one negative experience rather than nine positive ones.

    Christmas discounts on RU server...

    Was on WoT earlier for the free tank, they have widespread discounts and offers as well and that is the EU server. It's just the WoWs EU server that sucks.

    New Premium Camo

    Yeah I think they are going the same way as WoT although not sure how they will do the camouflage patterns. I really like pretty much all the camouflages on the ships I have. I like the Russian ones because the are enough to take the standard stock look away without blinding you and your team mates. The Tachibana and Ishizuchi are very nice. Quite like the Albany, I thought the standard camouflage ruined the look of the classic white and brass lines. Of course the 30-50% extra XP boost is very nice, Captain training here we come.

    There and back again - from ranked to randoms.

    I had some really nail biting matches, especially at rank 10 but found most of the matches were losses. I couldn't escape rank 10 no matter what I did. So I gave up. Rank 5 and 6 were good fun. Personally I would have preferred them not to switch tiers halfway through. I also should have played more, earlier as it was I think the 3rd last week before I started ranked battles and I haven't been playing WoWs very much (maybe 3-4 matches every so often).
  6. I got to rank 10 last week and gave up, the matches were incredibly painful. Lots of AFK Colorados (for some reason this ship seemed to count for more AFK's than any other). I got the Kure flag and the usual rank items. I wish the matches stayed at tier 5 and 6 they were good, fun matches.

    If it is it is a flawed premise, not one team is every going to have the teamwork required to mount an effective torpedo screen to spot torpedoes in time, bearing in mind I've not tried it yet the download and installation was incredibly slow for me just getting in now.

    Błyskawica available in the shop for €20

    Purchased the non-bundled version. Thank you for, perhaps, listening WG. Keep it up.

    The Bundle Poll: Revisited

    WG's grasp of the concept of bundles and retail are flawed. Bundles are a way to offer a little extra value to the customer while shifting substantially more product in one transaction, usually also increasing the monetary value of the transaction. They do this by being offered alongside the individual regular items included in the bundle. Bundles work because people see a saving, by comparing what the individual items cost by themselves. In WG's case they are not offering the key component by itself, i.e. the ship. I am quite sure many people will still purchase the bundles even if the ships themselves were offered solo. Taking a tank competitor as an example, in Armoured Warfare I have purchased both bundles (Merc, Collectors Edition) and single premium vehicles (Zhalo Merc) and will probably buy something from the new ICE deal. With regards to WoWs I cannot do this, because I purchased a large number of doubloons once I decided I liked the game, thinking that I would be able to buy premium ships or time with them. Of course I was only able to buy the permanently available ships. The issue isn't the bundle. The issue is the lack of alternatives for key items being sold in limited time frames.

    Aim Assist WOWS It is not allowed

    Just lol. Having briefly read the closed thread the situation seems to have gotten out of control due to the posting of certain people. Who happen to be supertesters. I am sure there are a number of super testers who do not post, and have not posted who are stand up guys and gals. Saying that Mr Conway, you really need to sort this out in a transparent matter. These are people you have put on a pedestal and are recognised by WG. So yes, part of being a super tester should follow the same professional standards as a community contributor so that they behave in a ethical and responsible manner. If you feel you cannot do that "Shepbur" then you really shouldn't be there. Many of us play the game. Many of us report issues. We don't get free passes for doing so.
  11. Naive. It's great you have such a low level of satisfaction to meet others don't. You will find many of those "greifers" actually want the game to improve. You will also find there is usually a population of fanbois who will sing the praises of any old turd even while it dies around them from lack of criticism or change. Said people then sit back when the game is code dust and bemoan the fate of "X" game. There are a great number of reasons why people complain, a lot of them are valid. As for growing, each patch has systematically broken the game and it takes them weeks if not months to fix even the smallest issue, something other developers can hotfix in days and sometimes hours. Good luck with that unbridled optimism of yours, you must be new to gaming.

    Datamined 0.5.2 Patch info

    Alternatively you could just release the information earlier, which would generate interest, create discussion and therefore player feedback and be seen as being proactive. It doesn't matter if they are subject to change, the changes have already been pushed to the test server which means someone must be testing it at the moment. So you already have the information its just the usual sluggish response time from WoWs.

    We want lower repair costs too!

    Incorrect, many would still play mid tier for a number of reasons. You might not lose credits but if you lose your ship what you receive is a tiny amount compared to the: cost of ship tier upgrades at higher levels the cost of the ships themselves The grind in WoWs is terrible. You shoot through the lower tiers, barely learning anything before jumping into the next ship and then you hit a plateau at tier 7/8 where you promptly lose the will to live knowing that it is going to get much worse. I can't be arsed playing tier 8 anymore, for a number of reasons but the economy and progress is one of those things that is killing the game for me.

    Would you buy The Hood?

    To be honest the Hood and the Bismarck should have been premiums. Neither ship benefited very much from war overhauls, unlike the Tirpitz so they would fit the Premium tag better. I have voted I would have bought it if sold out with a bundle. Truth is I've been thoroughly disgusted by the WG's handling of the Premium side of things, the game in general and the CM of the EU community that I will probably not buy another ship until something radically changes.

    Festive Bundles week 1

    Great how we got one, not so informative post, and Ectar couldn't be bothered replying in any of threads on the official forum but had plenty of time for multiple posts of reddit. I did love this: That's probably because we seldom get better offers in the EU compared to NA. Secondly we shouldn't need to as all servers should be on parity for offers, deals, events and sales. Currently EU is lagging behind NA despite have what double the population? If you cannot understand that people were annoyed that two of the most recently sought after ships were on sale for relatively good deals after bundle fleecing on the EU server then you are missing the skills required for the job. Black Friday was a UK, and due to the digital sales, a worldwide event. Even if it is currently not popular on the fringes of the EU many EU citizens take part and advantage of the sales. A sale is a sale and many of your competitors took advantage of it for their EU populations. But hey, its not a Russian event either right? The location of the sale was irrelevant, what we have is a case of the EU teams once again dropping the ball, both in terms of the sale itself and the WG response from the sale.
