    ARP Schiffe für lau?

    Du meinst wohl "Wieder mal". Eigentlich darf man gar nicht mehr auf die US Homepage gehen. Man kommt sich als Kunde nur verarscht vor. Das US Event empfinde ich als wesentlich angenehmer & fairer. Mal ganz von den lvl 10 Commandern abgesehen. Lieber eine "Fleißaufgabe" die ich mit jedem Schiff schon ab Tier VI durch einfaches Spielen, so wie ich es will, erfüllen kann, als auf Tier VIII Schiffe oder Premiums angewiesen zu sein, 20 Russen killen zu müssen, 500 Secondaries Treffer (mit meiner Atago? Ja bestimmt), Torpedo Treffer etc. einholen zu müssen, die alle eher sehr spezifische Schiffe erfordern.
  2. Sollte ein extra Weihnachtsverkauf kommen, gäbe es dafür eine eigene Ankündigung. Ich hoffe nur, sie ziehen mit den Thanksgiving Angeboten gleich. Andererseits kann ich es mir kaum vorstellen.

    Info: Hafenplätze für Silber statt Gold...

    Welches sind die 4 Schiffe, die man kaufen sollte um die Stellplätze zu bekommen?

    Wie einfach mal von dir ein Viertel der Beiträge hier entfernt wurden, die zum größten Teil nichtmal Offtopic sondern eine Erweiterung des Topics waren, während gänzlich unterhaltungsfremde Beiträge wie die Frage von Morgan, welche eigentlich in einen eigenen Thread gehört, statt dessen hier bleiben. Wer braucht so eine Willkür-Moderation? Mal ehrlich: Keiner. Die Leute wollen sich hier einfach unterhalten, wo naturgemäß ein Thema gerne mal in relatierten Diskussionen mündet, die nicht mehr 1zu1 auf den Titel passen aber dennoch vewandt sind. In einem Monat gibt es ohnehin niemanden mehr, der aus diesem Thread noch etwas für ihn Relevantes ziehen kann, so dass die "Informationen" hier schön geordnet erscheinen sollten. Das ist einfach Community Austausch und bedarf keiner Unterhaltungs-Polizei in Form von Moderatoren ABM.

    Black Friday turning grey?

    Black friday might originally be a yank thing but nowadays it's already a western-world-wide event to boost sales. Cyber Monday is all over the world equal.. or rather equally unknown. So if a smart marketing company (not WG Paris) would want to increase sales, they would coordinate their sale with WG America and WG Russia in order that no shop offers something way better than the other. You can keep personal flair but the value should be rather the same. Yet when WG America starts the biggest and most desireable sale every seen in WoWS and WG Paris is unwilling to draw level, they will only alienate their customers. And if all they offer is a rather lousy Black Friday T-Shirts sale and a rather unspectacular Cyber Monday then they made the biggest mistake a company can do: anger their potential as well as loyal customers. Because all they showed with this sale was that "yeah we're not only totally fine with treating european customers as cash cows that always have to pay more and get less - we don't even care enough to try to make you not notice it. we shove it right into your face". If WG would have wanted to avoid that, they would have chosen an international day of celebration amongst their customers (like christmas or new year or their very own birthday) and offer those amazing deals for all folks. Yet either there seems to be no communication at all between those WG marketing departments, which would speak for utter incompetence, or that's simply clearly intentional - which would speak for incompetence as well given the result. The forum is full of once loyal customers who complain that they not only would have spend enormeous amounts of money but also won't spend any money again for the next time and rather tend to other games which are equal fun but treat their customers the way they deserve it - with decency. They had the chance to make a buckload of money and cling players to at least a year to their game, where they usually tend to spend even more in that time and they simply wasted it. From an economical and marketing perspective this was the most openly incompetent decision I've seen in a while which absolutely bugs me, because it just made no sense at all. To WG Paris Black Friday was simply a huge PR desaster.

    Wenn ich genau das machen würde, und jetzt zum Beispiel zum EU Premium Account für ein Jahr greifen würde, wissend was auf den amerikanischem Server angeboten wird, würde ich mich dafür selbst verachten, so eine zweite Klasse Behandlung auch noch zu unterstützen und mich bereitwillig zur Melkkuh zu machen. Klar macht WoWS Spaß und der gelegentliche Zokk wird auch weiterhin drin sein. Aber allein mit dem Premium Account für ein Jahr hätten sie gutes Geld machen und zig Kunden für mindestens ein Jahr an ihr Spiel fesseln können, welche in der Zeit eher noch dazu neigen, noch mehr Geld auszugeben. Von den massiven Gewinnen durch die Flottenpakete mal ganz abgesehen. WG EU ist aber deswegen so geizig, weil sie scheinbar der Meinung sind ihre Produkte verkaufen sich selbst dann noch super, wenn man die Kunden ohrfeigt, solange man gleich danach nur eine kleine Praline Wiedergutmachung anbietet. Unter anderen Umständen wäre diese Praline ein angenehme Geste gewesen, bei der ich zugegriffen hätte. Nach der Erfahrung jetzt muss ich aber ablehnen. Welche andere Firma behandelt sonst so offen & erkennbar ihre Kunden unfair und macht sich nicht einmal Gedanken darum? Das klappt nur, weil die EU Kunden scheinbar dumm genug sind, selbst nach so einer Behandlung keinerlei Gewissensbisse zu haben und weiter brav einzukaufen, auch wenn man damit genau so ein Geschäftsmodell auch noch unterstützt, solange sie nur selbst meinen etwas davon irgendwie haben. Egal wie kurzfristig das gedacht ist. Ergo liegt das Problem eher bei den Kunden als Wargaming, die sich zwar opportunistisch und unmoralisch verhalten, aber eigentlich einfach nur dem "Gelegenheit macht Diebe" Prinzip folgen.

    Tja ich wäre bereit gewesen ein paar Hundert Euro für Premiumzeit und Schiffe zu investieren. So bekommt WG eben nix und ich kann mich mehr auf andere Spiele konzentrieren, die mir genauso viel Spaß machen, wo man sich aber nicht derart von den Machern veräppelt und geringschätzt fühlen muss. 1A Marketingabteilung.

    Black Friday turning grey?

    Because disappointment and frustration apparently kick in with the moment of realization. It doesn't take a marketing expert to realize that the announcment of this kind of sale will leave a lot of customers "disappointed" to say the least. If that's only an expression of WG EU's humor then they should seriously consider to save them for April's fool day. Yet born from experience there's no reason to believe that in the end they will definitely treat each customers equal. You don't believe it yourself that there "might" be still coming something equally great at the world famous Cyber Monday, don't you? Hope is just fool's gold and rationality wise, thing's are not in our favor. So I might as well give them my fair share of customer appreciation as long as it's fresh.

    Looking at what the Americas got (-50% on EVERYTHING) for their Thanksgiving and Black Friday while we get T-Shirts I can't help but feel utterly mad at WG. You don't want my money because you rate me as a 4th class customer? Fine Big business idea from me: How 'bout adding a T-Shirt that says "I'm a Wargaming Europe Customer and all I got for Black Friday was this lousy Shirt". I bet it would be a bestseller

    Bogue - Why does the 2 fighter setup even exist?

    Your whole thesis relies on the fact that your opponent would be an idiot. While this may partially be the case from time to time at this tier I find it absolutely misleading when you want to discuss the strength and sense of a build where you always should calculate that your opponent is equally skilled as you are to evaluate a build's true potential. And to be fair strafes are quite easy to dodge and turn against the one strafing while most people have learned even by Tier V to not being lured over enemy BB's. Not that at this tier the AA would be nearly as effective as it becomes later on but you're calculating with an enormeous amount of kill greed of your opponent here as for an AS Bogue enemy fighters aren't important enough targets to make it worth to follow them through enemy AA to risk losses when your actual target are enemy bombers. And as long as you can send those bombers back to retreat over their own fleet they can't do damage equally. Moreover the 2 fighter Bogue setup plays that ridiculously easy that you really have to give your best to fail with it against a Zuiho. Most of all though I rather prefer challenging games over rigged ones where one player gains a huge bonus over the other on the cost of becoming almost entirely useless himself. It's like you give one player in a competetive Counter Strike Match an aimbot sniper rifle but he only can do damage against the enemy sniper. It's simply a destructive mechanic and all it does (except for the megalomaniac fun it may give to some of its users) is to waste the time of the two carrier players involved in a match and rob a Zuiho player, which might actually have been the more skilled of the two, of their success. Thus I absolutely understand why some seem to regard AS build users as rather weak players as they are trying to have success with a build that doesn't require any finesse and on top of it has the tendency to rather hurt it's team more than it helps. To me it's a pure troll build so far and entirely counterproductive to the concept of a game. It doesn't make sense progress wise and possibly only for those which want to pimp their win:loss statistics - and even then rather undeservedly and as we already discussed with rather mixed success. If a player wants to scout with planes and be useful for his team he should do it game concept wise with a build that actually requires him to be capable in order to be effective so he prevails through skill. Equally the game should always make sure that the more capable player comes out on top and not artificially rigging the chances and outcome with "superior" but useless builds which make inferior players come out on top rather undeservedly because the build is so easy to use that you can barely fail with it. To make a long story short: I think the game would be better off without AS builds for it's very own sake. Yet equally I think it's wargaming's preference to always set up Japanese carriers vs US carriers whenever possible which somewhat hurts the game. If a Bogue would actualy have to fight a Bogue from time to time or a Zuiho a Zuiho then I suspect the game would be noticeably more challenging and fair.
  11. I just had another game in my Zuiho 1vs1 against a Bogue since Wargaming just seems to love to preferably pair Japanese against US and vice versa. And while I enjoy playing the Bogue for myself for what I regard obvious reasons I can't help but wonder why the 2 Fighter Squadron layout for the Bogue even exists. If you pick it you basically intend to ruin the game for the enemy carrier without anything he could do against it via sacrificing your own game for it. Everybody just loses. It's not like the japanese carrier wouldn't have a hard enough time with his inferior zeros being practically rendered useless even against a Bogue with the stock 1 Fighter 1 Torps layout (which I regard as the best and most well balanced) if the Bogue player knows what he's doing. If any Tier V carrier would have needed a two fighter squadron build it would rather have been the Zuiho yet even then I'd regard it as a waste. All you can hope for when you actually want to use your zeroes is to hope that the enemy will pick the no fighter setup for the bogue. Otherwise you're just constantly on the run with them. The existance of 2 US fighter squadrons just turns what should be a challenging game into pure absurdity.
  12. I currently have Premium Account and there's a +200% event. "What a great opportunity to use my flags" I thought. "What a blast it would be to see those points flooding in" I thought. Well I thought wrong!! Without any overexaggeration I'm on my 16th loss in a row now. 16 matches played and not a single one won. I had my fair share of bad luck streaks before like everyone but I never had anything like this. And the worst part is yet to come. Pretty much every match I end up losing and wasting all those precious flags I had some of the best games I ever had in my WoWs career. I'm typically place 1-3 of my team, one time even cashing in even more XP points than the enemy despite the fact that they get their points doubled for victory. I can't describe how I feel right now. When you gave your very best, everything went perfect, you cash in 4 citadel hits on enemy cruisers in your BB König, sunk one enemy, made 110k damage.. then you look at the stats and read 6vs3 - almost won. And suddenly, within a minute it's 2vs2 and you actually lose due to having less points than the enemy due to all those losses. When you go out of a game with 2650 XP despite a loss and think about just what exactly went wrong this time again. What more there is you could even do. I get more and more the feeling that every flag you put on your mast raises your ELO for a few hundred till thousand points, forcing the matchmaker to "rebalance" it by placing you with teammates who in return have a few thousand points less than you. Otherwise I'm really out of explanations of how such an absurd loss streak could be achieved else.
