    Thank you WG: sincerely!

    Well, Gremy was op, but powercreep should have seen to that. Both Slava and Stalingrad only have the guns going for them, but are otherwise vulnerable ships in most regards. Without broadsides to farm they struggle a fair bit - especially due to poor he dpm in the case of Stalingrad.

    Rankeds at t5-7?

    T7 is a bad place to be in for dds. At least most are.

    AFK players (result of "stuck in loading" bug)

    This, along with very long loading times after a new update, has occurred for years already. But hey, blaming it on the hardware seems less attractive by now.

    SO who is getting the Vampire II?

    You killed a glorious meme, but your sacrifice shan't be forgotten.

    Describe the majority of WOWS players:

    Well, Leviathan is a lot to wrap your head around, but if your view of the world is a bit more realistic than Rousseau's it is a good recommendation.

    More of a Hobbes fan myself.

    Describe the majority of WOWS players:

    Same thing as in society. You have roughly 20% of the population providing progress, innovation, culture and productivity and 80% not caring about anything at all and just not turning into animals out of fear of punishment.

    Worst T10 BB in your opinion?

    Don't play bb nearly enough to make a valid contribution, but I do think gk got powercrept pretty hard. Her hp pool hardly matters since she eats so many full pens. Then again I can also understand anyone who says repu. The armor is just horrid. Remember an encounter when one got within 10km of my ifhe Haru (15km) range. That was 2 minutes into the game. 3 minutes into the game the poor guy had donated the "first blood" to me, despite trying rather well to survive.

    I would like a refund please, WG

    And I said I feel with him. And to correct you a bit: you do not buy a product, but a license to use. This is where a big difference is to be found. Granted, I'm not fluent in 30ish different countries laws on refunds, but I'm fairly optimistic WG lawyers checked beforehand. And coming off less smug would also do wonders for you.

    I'm not arguing for happiness nor good business practices. We all know how slick WG rules are. Decency is not to be expected. Hence I tend to look at matters in a strictly legal sense. As I pointed out, I'm completely with op emotionally, but we have known for years that meta and mechanic changes may afflict premiums. We have also known for years that playing just 1 battle invalidates any kind of refund. And we have known since forever that you do not buy the premium, but the right to use it. This is also why I don't blindly throw money at the screen for the cool premium of the day, but am rather eyeing those ships that have good fundamentals which should lend them to play well in almost all conditions. I'm not here to scold anyone or the like. I'm just pointing out WG logic and a good way to cope with it.

    Long story very short: I feel with you and understand where you are coming from, but please do be aware that refunds are based on courtesy and nothing else. Be it money, time or whatever, always spend it knowing you won't get it back. The things customers tried to refund in my store........ honestly, I'm being rather courteous, but some people need to learn to live with their decisions.

    SO who is getting the Vampire II?

    Only met one in ranked so far. I won't her unless WG throws me the rb points as I'm not resetting any lines. I don't really like all the utility dds are getting - whoever thought sneaky dds should get a heal needs to be slapped to sensibility. It offsets skill advantages and ship capabilities in the class most likely to encounter one another in direct combat. I also do not like the dpm race dds have gotten into. In case of Haru and kleber it is okay since those ships pay for it in other sectors. When it comes to sneaky dds though I do believe gearing dpm would have been sufficient at the high end. I can see the vampire being quite good, but she will also be a noob trap, so expect to see her blow up early often.

    Respecs should be free anyway

    Well, you built your captains as you liked them. Personally I would be in favor of a free respec (heck, even if it is only on patch day), but from a business point of view I can understand why bb captains without dead eye don't get one. The one thing I find really iffy is that captains were automatically trained when the new skills arrived. Players who are on longer breaks for whatever reasons will get shafted thanks to that. Edit after reading more replies: Guys, don't make this about money. I have never spent anything on dubs and have between 2 and 3k constantly just by playing. This is not a charity, it is a product that needs to generate revenue to stay alive. The F2P element implies that certain amounts of all in game currencies must be provided for for everyone. This in turn necessitates mechanisms for said players to spend their currencies on. If you are assuming complete f2p with no premium ships, the 25 dubs to demount modules costing 2 and 3 million credits respectively is huge. As for increase in commander xp: Getting to 19 points was easy. So easy in fact that one would accumulate a lot of free commander xp quickly. This created an inflationary system which - again - needed a sink. Guys: don't think on an interpersonal level, but on a business level and you will be a.) Much less offended and b.) More able to spend your resources efficiently.

    DM & Salem armor buff?

    Yes, this. I don't have a DM, but got the Salem. And tbf they really need that weak bow armor to keep them honest. Imagine any potato being immune to 410s and just rushing in. With that dpm. Without consequence. I consider both ships quite well balanced. They are designed for specific scenarios, but if they get into the right position. ... oh baby.
