    Your eu tokendrop for the first 4 containers

    10, 20, 40, 140. And I don't have any keen interest in Euro dds. Yes, I was apparently very lucky, don't hold it against me please.

    daily news from RANKED

    To be fair: playing dd in ranked can be good for the team, but bad for you since the bb always keeps the star. You will get stomped by the cv and will really need great games. Reached rank 1 once. I tried with dds since they are my best class. At the end of the day the yamato got me there.

    Please never do Arms Race again.

    In short: Guys play not to lose instead of to win. Teams are horrible and even a new personal damage record didn't prevent me from losing. But I bawled a Kremlin to death in the Salem, which is the sole high point so far.

    What Were Your Greatest Gaming Achievements Today ?

    222k damage in the Haru, plus a new XP record with 2900ish base yesterday night. Rather enjoyable game :).

    My Smolensk's guns despertly need servicing!

    Um, I hate to break it to you, but have you maybe considered that some of this is on you? Fires: You need to keep in mind that TX ships have a 50% fire resistance. So your 11% is Actually 5.5% and then we deduce all the shells hitting the belt and shattering/bouncing and your fire chance seems to be where to expect it. Ghost ships and shot falling short issue. Our glorious servers and coders be thanked. This happens to everyone at different points in time. I do however agree, that the amount of magical armor capable to withstand Yami is disconcerting. Losing streak conspiracy: Um no. This is bad luck and you try harding way too much to force the issue. Do You know why 50%wr are the norm? Because every game has this wr.

    How to Chapayev?

    Play her save. She teaches this better than most other cruisers. Once you get the hang of it though, she is just gorgeous. I kept her in port. In my opinion she is probably the best t8 cruiser. Great guns, awesome concealment, radar. ...
  8. While I'm no where as active as I once was I would still like to drop my 2c: I would argue I know how to dd, those in doubt are free to look it up. CVs have become quite the nuisance. This is the result of them having too many cards up their sleeve. The real issue is that they risk very little while doing their job. I know first hand how frustrating it was to be deplaned back in the day, but not having a punishment in place for reckless play is bad design. Maybe introduce a timer which determines your turn around time based on time spent in the air/planes lost during that time? As it stands now it is as El2azer said in another thread: the closer you get to the cv you get the more its killing potential goes up. What is more is that the reduction of dot damage made an increase in alpha necessary. The result are 30k ap bomb drops and rocket strikes that cripple dds at the 1 minute mark to the point that a 1v1 against another dd becomes completely impossible, even at great skill disparity. The other issues about dds as of late are different ones though: The game has seen a huge increase in anti dd ships. Names like Kitakaze, the French dds, Smolensk, Russian bbias, battle cruisers and the upcoming Russian cl line come to mind. The result is that quite a number of the non gimmicky dds are left in a bad spot. Are they bad ships? Far from it, but the amount of concentration to play them well keeps increasing and their potential keeps getting limited. As for rts vs new: yes, good rts CVs could instagib dds, but it always felt like a contest and not just pure grief. And their investment in terms of planes and time spent put a lot of pressure on them to land their strike. A miss was a huge waste. Super unica shouldn't be a balancing factor, but, as the term infers, the exception.

    What is the best ship to farm citadels?

    Salem or dm. The citadel damage is not wild enough to outright kill a target, but improved pen angles and consistent.

    24,000 doubloons for 'premium' Puerto Rico boosters.

    Oops, sorry. Missed that you get quite a number of points per upgrade. But even then you will have to have the full boost running for quite a significant amount of time and can't miss anything.

    24,000 doubloons for 'premium' Puerto Rico boosters.

    That equation is the one including full free boost, just excluding the Dubloon one. Feel free to check my math.

    24,000 doubloons for 'premium' Puerto Rico boosters.

    Just did the math: Total point amount to get her for free: 51.300.000 Divided by hours, minutes and at maximum amount of free acceleration the result was somewhere around 25.5. This would then be the amount of days you would have with all free boosters active. Let's just say I'd rather keep my sanity.

    It isn't. The content is determined on drop. And rng is indeed quite random.

    8 for me (including 1 from tyl). 3k dubs, 50 ouroboros, 25 hydras, 2 sets of camos and then some flags. I consider that quite a nice pull, though I'd have liked to get some coal as well. Anyhow, at least I'm back at 3800 dubs.

    Randoms, or Ranked?

    Epicentre is not my gripe. T7 is, at least as someone who won't rebuy either the gadjah or Shiratsuyu. With the Belfast around and even less competent bbs.... no thanks.
