    Update 0.7.11: Rule, Britannia! - Discussion Thread

    It's not really [edited], even a single AP shell tearing through a dd would smash all kinds of stuff and frequently did, AP even in this game only arms if there is enough ship in the way to arm it, hence overpens causing relatively small damage in general when a bb round hits a broadside dd or cruiser, and substantial damage when hitting nose or stern on as the there are so many more solid objects and much more ship to arm the shell's. Maybe something at long range could have been tinkered with but now a dd at 3k torping you can expect no more than around 10k max damage if you happen to fire AP. I know it's an attempt at a balance mechanic but 8 or 9 16 inch shells at close range would still turn a dd into scrap, sink it or simply blap it into another universe And if i hit a dd by luck or skill at long range why shouldn't i be rewarded with appropriate damage rewards. How many people will now attempt long range shots at DD or when ambushed from behind an island simply can't defend himself. Does AP v DD need tinkering with, maybe but with an in depth look at shell type and arming values at varying ranges, but a blanket 10% max regardless of range, angle, shell type or area of the vessel hit is a bit lazy and a bit crappy, and one more weapon in a dd players arsenal, Torps, stealth, smoke, radar, speed and agility, HE spam and now a certain amount of immunity when attacking BB at close range. No for me it's a mechanic needs leaving alone or at least doing properly.

    Eg with a reload of 30 second plus and a nose on dd charging you down at 5k range as soon as it becomes visible you have no option but to fire and await the 30 sec reload, or hit reload and hope for the best, of all the problems this game has and all the changes this game needed Ap v dd was not one of them, you have zero chance of stopping a relatively high health dd running you down in a BB. Why shouldn't a DD that gets too close and is spotted be punished like any other class of ship for making mistakes, or if someone hits a dd at long range by luck or skill why shouldn't they be rewarded with a solid hit. They have every advantage already, stealth, torps, speed as well as being able to dodge like a startled gazelle. pretty much all CC's and streamers have voiced concerns over this new mechanic and yet you still went ahead so my stance in this instance that you simply didn't listen is valid. How much map awareness do BB's need, and they are in general already hugging map edges and now run this added risk of been nigh on helpless to a rapidly closing dd. You can guess based on last known sighting, use gut feeling or map topography to aid your awareness, but none of that is going to help you if a committed dd play with enough health decides to attack you. It's one more bad change among many and we will of course have to deal with it. That doesn't make it right or good for the game. But as usual we will just have to wait and see. As a company man your obviously gonna defend this move, it's your job after all. Maybe RPF for BB or short range short duration radar would start to rebalance things, hell even greater range for spotter aircraft. You would think the falling numbers in your titles would tell you the player base thinks your steering these games in the wrong direction. The fact is there is a skill difference in players, a pyramid if you like, a few God like players at the top, then good players in the middle with the vast majority being average or below like myself. Players should be punished for mistakes and bad play not know they cannot be 1 shotted when running down a BB or simply getting too close due to miscalculation. Anyway, my high horse needs a rest so i will leave it there. "An unneccessary change implemented regardless of general population opinion". Have a nice day MrC.

    WG state there is a problem with so many FREE xp and coal ships getting into t9 battles and it's increasing, i get this argument and for once agree with them, offering a small chance to pick one of these great ships up in a super container means less people will be collecting consumable crates for the coal and xp and will opt for that chance at a SC and a t9 premium ship. A simple and clever solution to the FREE xp and coal glut currently in WoW. If only all WG's solutions were as clever and simple as this one. Now it would be nice to know what new ships and what price point and options to purchase will be replacing the Musashi and Kronshtadt.

    What a load of bull with the dd v AP changes, why should a dd have virtual immunity from full health when rushing down a BB, no longer can a BB defend itself in a close in fight with a dd, it's often said that WG compared to other games dev's listen to us sometimes, well this time they didn't, all the CC's, youtubers and vast swathes of players say it's a bad idea to buff the already relatively OP dd's abilities against battleships and yet they didn't listen just forced through the change. There is a long term agenda here at WoW to turn the game into the 5 minute rofl stomp's that are the staple of WoT at the moment, Faster games boost's WG's stat's when competing in the Online game award's encouraging them to make the games much much faster. The games in WoT are between 4-5 mins, here due to the speed of ships they will obviously be slower im guessing within 12 months 7 mins will be the norm. Little tactical play will be encouraged just a lemming train rofl stomp on new maps with minimal cover ( next patch all island sizes are being reduced ). New cv rework with multiple attack wings, numerous cv's in game with much faster deployment of bomber wings, the constant progression to HE spamming ships, torp spamming dd's with shorter and shorter reload times and faster machine gun style reloads means this game in a year or so will be a seaborne clone of WoT. Faster games, little tactics or skill, smaller maps, more air attacks and torp and HE spamming ships. It's not a good development in my view. I also think a simple solution to MM would be +2 tier spread upto t7 and then a +1 at tiers 7-10. Nothing over complicated just a simple and effective use of the ships in game, i personally would be happy to wait an extra few seconds to get fairer MM.

    How many times have new lines come out where you have ground out maybe 150-200k xp to get ready for the next ship in the line after a split?...I'm pretty sure if WG then turned around and told you that xp you earned is no good and you have to grind it all out again you would spit your dummy out too. What the guy is trying to point out is that previous experience pointed to the fact the JB would in fact be coal at Musashi rates, or Free xp at the krondstadt rate.and he prepared for that. Just like you ground out the xp on the Cleveland to unlock the Baltimore after the USA cruiser split. Except in this case there was no communication or even a hint it would be coal at 30% more than the Musashi or cash. In the past there has been enough communication to allow people to prepare for these ships. In this case as it was to be a cash sale it was kept quiet meaning players prepared as usual only to be pie'd on release day. The guy has a legit gripe.

    Nicely detailed answer, I'm not sure anyone begrudges WG making a healthy profit i certainly don't, without that profit WG would not continue to support the game which i am sure no one want's but some of these sales trends are frankly worrying and not great value. Gambling crates with 1 flag 1 camo and an often duplicated collection item for a few pounds each is way over priced and irresponsible as not everyone is able to control their need to "WIN" the items in these crates. I highlight Notsers experience in his "chase" to unlock the Lightening. Granted he didn't buy all of the crates he opened himself his subbies gifted many, but his chase highlighted the fact that it took many hundreds of crates "around 250 if memory serves" before he unlocked the Lightning mission, around $£400-450. Some people can't control the urge to spend that much in "the chase". As for the premium ships the prices have indeed also increased as each ship is released Tirpitz around £34 on release and the recent Roma £41 with many recent releases both here and in WOT available only in bundles hiking the price and holding us to ransom by forcing us, if we want the ship to buy it with unwanted attachments. This was done while also removing the 30% buy anything loyalty voucher. Now with T8 MM being so bad the sale of t9's points to T8 being ignored and the new Meta being £50-£60 T9's. I see you say there are no plans and your just testing the waters at this price point with the JB, but i predict here and now the return of the Missouri...for an inflated cash price probably further inflated by being bundle only. I and others in the forum have little issue in the sale of T9 and even t10 premium ships but at a sensible and value for money price. I am by your own standards an average to good player although totally a solo player with just a 49% win rate and have probably reached my ceiling without committing many more hours to the game with the aim of becoming a much better player. With this in mind i kinda disagree with "better" players trying to stop others playing higher tier premium ships until a certain skill level is reached. I'snt that what ranked and other competitive modes are for?. I have many of the ships and tanks available in your games and if a regular spender like myself is beginning to question your pricing policies and value for money then surely you should look at the reasons why.

    The 30% hike is obvious, at the same price as the Musashi the shiny new JB would be the obvious choice for those holding the coal for either the Musashi or the JB. Therefore making it 30% more coal expensive means cash sales are more likely for the JB and coal will still go on the Musashi. I have around 180k coal, deliberately held onto anticipating the JB to be the same cost as the current T9's. Now i face another 2-3 months coal grind to reach that goal or buy JB and get the Musashi....Genius really, they already consider us stupid, but it's quite simple to work out why the 30% difference in coal price is here. To generate real cash. Kudos WG, almost fooled us.

    I'm all for different options for buying ships, but the cynical side of me says WG screwed T8 MM, sales of T8 ships have dropped due to the bad T8 MM so you decided to sell T9 and ignore the mess in T8.

    Mr Conway, is there a particular reason why the prices appear to be increasing so quickly on ships, crates and other goods in the shop while you have ended the ability to use the very occasional reward voucher on any package in the premium shop. The reward voucher allowed you to get an extra sale discount on packages and are now practically useless and only redeemable on premium time (which you offer very occasionally at the same price anyway or on permanent premium shop ships mostly power creeped now). WoW and WoT are among the most expensive games on the internet. Do you really think many of these pixel ships are good value these days? It seems that as the player base has leveled out in numbers currently playing the game you have compensated for the lack of bottom line growth by increasing your prices often, this alienates players further reducing your sales which you again compensate for by another increase alienating more players and well...you get the drift. I'm struggling to convince myself to keep investing. Each of your recently way over priced new ships are more than the cost of some of the latest and greatest complete games. Which i have started to buy expanding my library and reducing my spend with WG to almost nothing. Is this a good business model i don't think so. I'm not the only one questioning your over inflated prices and rapidly increasing frequency of price increases. The forums are full of such concerns. Use what influence you have to get some value back into game purchases. Question asked here because Mr Conway is here answering posts. be interested to see if a price complaint receives a reply :).

    I like the fact there are several different ways to purchase this ship but the costs of the game are frankly getting ridiculous, almost £4 for 1 crate, £52 for a t9 ship and a port slot, the prices are massively increasing, the player base isn't expanding, the game play is slowly slipping into a WOT style game of lemming trains and terrible T8 MM...isn't it strange or maybe not that they completely screw T8 MM and then start selling T9 ships. I stopped buying in WOT last Xmas, and now due to a complete lack of value in these ships am pretty sure i'm about done spending here, Nikolai maybe as it looks fun, some Xmas crates which if they turn out to be the same 1 flag, 1 camo and a collection item will be the last spend ever on the game. Come on Wg....put the value back into the shop.

    A. Ovechkin Commanders

    Ovewhatshisname commander only has 2 buffs, and is on sale at stupid money for a commander, only other advantage is he can be used for 2 nations, but why bother, with only 100 games on his account my nephew has loads of 10 skilled captains earned by free missions, Ovewatshisface dual commander gets 15 skills, but will cost you a small mortgage to find. Free Zamnesky captain has 3 buffs lol, Don't get done, This guy in quote is not alone, £100 spent and pretty much nothing other than a flags and a ship he sold cos he did not want it. Put up the Nikolai or the Cesare and you can have some money, The Witchita if they don't rebalance the crap out of it will also maybe get some cash prised out of my tightly gripped "no money for WG" hands. But these crates or pathetic low chance junk crate of recent months not a chance, don't do it people. Peace out.

    A. Ovechkin Commanders

    I urge the whole community to refuse to buy these containers, 4 euro for 1 container WOW, and i don't mean world of warships i mean WOW, unbelievable. There are many opening youtube video's and very few are hitting anything other than a few flags and occasional mission, watching most of the openings have produce zero dual Ovechkins. Also when these loot boxes arrived from WG they were a little over 2 euro and around 12 months later are double what they were released at with less in them. WG have even removed the doubloon value if your lucky and i do mean extremely lucky and unlikely to hit a premium ship or captain and you already own them you now get credits. I have spent plenty on this and other games but i do like to feel i am getting value for money. Recently these crate have none of that in them, a few flags a slight gamble chance of a prem ship or captain or little else. Spend your 4 euro on a lottery ticket where i'm sure the odds of hitting the jackpot are far better than hitting anything of value here. If you do feel you need or must have whats in these crates just buy the item you want in the prem shop. It will work out cheaper in the end, lottery style luck may favour one or two of you but these crates are designed to dissapoint while encouraging you to spend on a "maybe next time feeling". In the end it's your money and good luck to those who do hit something good, but in general, like most gambling sites your just gonna get crushed. Ghengis Khan is quoted as saying "You can kill a goat only once but can milk it many times"..... Don't be WG's goat's. And get value for money if that's possible with this company theses days. Peace out.

    PSA: HMS Warspite Doubloon Compensation

    Good to know, was highly disappointed to see the value lowered after buying the crates and nice to know it will be rectified, sadly not before i could invest the doubloons in a prem ship taking advantage of the sale. Maybe with our refunds a discount voucher as well would be appreciated.
