  1. yeah, got a massive lag spike in game followed by being booted from the server and it won't let me back on, a good successful new patch this
  2. part of the problem is that WG have set this game up to coddle less experience/skilled players with RNG mechanics, after all, who needs to learn to angle if you just play a german BB, who needs to learn when to use AP/HE when HE will always do good, consistent damage on all targets. Randomly detonating a full hp target will give them the odd really good result game to make them feel like they're a good player and of course there's always the BB's camping at the back sniping the whole game that come top on XP on the losing team simply because they lived the longest and were therefore able to farm damage for longer. let's not forget DD's that just sit in smoke that then get hit by 4 torpedos and still survive because of 'damage saturation' The game doesn't really encourage you to learn all of the mechanics and let's face it, when you do learn all of the mechanics, situations like those above just annoy you more!
  3. it's another one of WG's "fun and engaging" mechanics like detonation because seemingly Wg don't like any part of this game being decided by skill.
  4. Ranked is no different to randoms, I've come across plenty of people that AFK or bring stock ships into ranked then entirely ignore instructions from team mates. I've found playing the Farragut is the best ship for the impact on win chance, you can carry a bad team far better when you can take down most other DD's easily in gun fights and can give your team smoke (which can encourage them to actually push forward if you lay the smoke slightly ahead of them ) it also has the speed to go and take caps in the late game when there are only a few ships left.
  5. To be honest, I'm fine with not having weekend 'specials' every weekend, as long as when we do get them they are actually special, not just an x2 on your first win, a discount on low-mid tier ships and some crappy mission.
  6. Steam summer sales draw people away and WG haven't come up with anything to tempt anyone back, the weekend 'specials' are laughable, maybe numbers might pick up again after summer, maybe......
  7. I think 3 RPM would be be too much on the Thunderer, perhaps a 24-26 or so second reload would be better. Also, I think Vanguard should get a slightly faster reload than 2rpm, perhaps 26-28 second reload.
  8. 50k xp for that much? wouldn't it be cheaper just to convert free xp (and they wouldn't steal your account then)?
  9. Even with the 12km torps the Yugumo is still going to be an inferior torpboat (and definitely inferior gun boat) to the Fletcher, which has more torps, that reload faster, have better detection range, similar torp speed and only 1.5km less torp range. Unless they at the very least buff either torp reload or torp detection on the Yugumo, it's still going to be the underdog in every way
  10. I still think that scaling citadel damage would help, so DD's take no citadel damage (same as at the moment), cruisers could take 50% damage and BB's/CV's take full citadel damage (because let's face it, when a CV is spotted they're dead regardless if anyone is within gun range)
  11. they will wait until after the hood bundles are done I think. They don't want to give anyone any excuse/options to not pay exorbitant amounts for the Hood.
  12. I'd say the game is stagnating rather than dying as such, it's not really increasing in size like WoT was at this stage after it's release
  13. the top bundles are nearly always around the £99 mark. I was excited to play this event with the Hood but to be honest this attitude from WG has kind of killed that feeling, don't even know if I can be bothered with the event at all, think I may just do a few casual battles between now and 9th June instead of grinding out the missions
  14. Roll up, Roll up! grabs your seats for the latest WG public relations clusterf*ck! let's see them try to worm their way out of this one again (*grabs popcorn*)
  15. It would have been awesome if WG released HMS Norfolk or Suffolk at the same time as the Hood for the event but WG won't do that when they already have the Belfast as the tier 7 cruiser premium
