  1. For Yamamoto, you have to have gotten a Yamamoto-container first (either bought, or from the final stage of the Yamamoto-campaign), for Halsey, an American container (which you can buy, or earn via the Hit Hard Campaign, or the Indianapolis-missions), it won't start collecting before it gets triggered by that container. So for Yamamoto, it's either pay up for some containers, or play T8+ ships for quite a while to get through the missions.
  2. While a lot of improvements were made towards QOL-improvements for the EU-playerbase, I also sadly have to agree with these points. It's not so subtle one wouldn't notice it.
  3. Indianapolis Marathon (01.06. - 16.07.)

    It *can* be done with a Scharnhorst. I've reached 151 main battery hits during an epic 19.5 minute battle where the enemy was kind enough to come somewhat broadside to my angled Scharny one by one. But that was... unique. Let's say a regular BB has a 30 second reload, an 9 barrels (not that unheard off). That's 18 potential hits/minute, or it would take 8m20s of constant firing and 100% hitrate to reach 150 hits. Not *that* plausible though.
  4. Indianapolis Marathon (01.06. - 16.07.)

    Maybe a tip for next season of such a mission: "do not combine 2 missions together that heavily favour one class (cruisers in this case). Matchmaker is absolute hell, and gameplay suffers hard. Little carriers to be found T8+, Clevelands everywhere, and everyone is camping behind islands, lobbing shells over no-mans-land, while the carriers that ARE present, now take the long way around via the map-edge to snipe eachother. On a bright note, an Atlanta-mission came falling out of my 30-plane kill container today. NOICE!
  5. Indianapolis Marathon (01.06. - 16.07.)

    It's the one mission I dread the most, paired with the "in one victorious battle, get 3x defended, capped or assist capped achievements", only to have standard battles 8/10. I've done in already in a Cleveland, but it requires a bit of luck, a bit of cooperation from the enemy and a team that doesn't suck.
  6. HM S BELFAST

    "high". If you're after a single particular ship, expect to pay hundreds of € for boxes.
  7. Luckily I had a fresh pair of Carry-Pants™ on. Team folded somewhat around the 7-minute mark, so me and a very brave Koningsberg went boldly through the center to flush out their Akizuki, Gneisenau, Kongo & Lyon. Three fell to my (secondary) guns, as did the Köningsberg to the Lyon. It became a stand-off between me at 5k health and without heal, versus a Lyon at 70% health... And then he continued to fire AP into my bow with the battle-timer mercilessly ticking down the final minute. Tense, very tense. One HE-salvo would probably have sealed the deal in his favour. Ooooh Nelson, I love you so much, you ridiculous beast!
  8. I haven't started yet, and I doubt I will in the (near) future. I just finished the Yamamoto-campaign days before Halsey went live, so I'm decompressing a bit from high-tier prestation-driven gameplay. Requirements seem fairly steep, so I'll also have to revert to the 1+1+1+1+1 method.
  9. That I'm aware of, since I did participate in Ranked for a few seasons (just to get the flag though). The thing is that there is nothing wrong with being rewarded for being in a clan or having played ranked, but that the membership of a clan in hindsight seemed to be mandatory to benefit from a non-related upcoming part of the game. That's the gripe.
  10. Just in it for some oil

    Since oil seems to be the next big thing here in WoWS, maybe I should join a clan then, some stuff about me: I don't have any T10, nor will I ever have any, for I find T10 gameplay stale & boring, and I have no interest in fantasy-ships (that leaves Yamato, Des Moines & Gearing, from which I am a long way removed). That leaves out any clan that wishes to do CW in a serious way. I play 97% of the time in the downtime hours, so that means: "not between 18h & 23h, nor during weekends & holidays", therefore my involvement in clan battles would be zero to begin with, even with rental ships. I don't do voice-coms or spoken Discord. I don't have a dedicated & separated "gaming room", the laptop stands in the living room, and MrsFingers also sits there. Voicecoms are often mandatory. I play erratically: sometimes a lot, sometimes hardly, sometimes not at all. A lot of clans (even the ones that are just there for the oil) request a minimum input of crates/period, which I know I can't promise to fulfil. Since I play erratically, I don't "plan" my WoWS sessions. A lot of clans require you to notify the commander when you take downtime. I know I can't because I don't know if I'll be playing tomorrow or not. With a lot of clans, I don't have a common ground. I'm not an anime fan, I'm not that patriotic to be in some sort of national clan,... I'm not that sociable to begin with. My motto: "don't bother me, and I won't bother you". I don't do divisions either. Winrate: 55.12%, 2.3k battles (all solo PVP) Above average damage & WR in my key ships, below average survival rate, because I gotta spend all dem HP-points, I paid for them anyway. Does Ranked from time to time, often enough to get the commemorative flag, except last season because I couldn't really be bothered with T8 gameplay. Careful player, not chatbanned in the game ever, only turned pink once due to a nearly-dead cruiser running into me, thus making me have "killed" the poor slob. Fun > competitive. Yes, I run a full-secondary build Bismarck with dedicated 19pt commander for the sake of it (and to farm ribbons for missions). Ships: see signature: does best in BB's and torpedo-boats, is bad in cruisers & gunboats. Often to be found smashing people to bits with the Nelson. Tries to get 5 containers a week. Often reaches that goal, then again, it happens regularly that I fall (well) short of that) I like historical stuff, especially ships from between the Ironclad period & Superdreadnought era. As long as it's got a reciprocating steam engine (compound or single-expansion), I'm happy. Turbines are allowed though. Not a complete tw@tw@ffle in real life. Not that it should bother you, since I won't be socialising in the game either.
  11. Oil collected without a Clan

    So players who are not part of a clan do not play the game, and are therefore doing nothing. Because they don't generate oil when opening the crates they get for doing nothing. Mkay...
  12. But those ships are only available for steel IIRC. And steel isn't being handed out regarding the "personal oil stash", only coal. So... for those items, these players start from scratch anyway, since having participated in CW/Ranked is a requirement to get steel (and in the 2nd paragraph I even say: "there is absolutely nothing wrong with being rewarded for participating in CW/Ranked, on top of the normal benefits those modes bring". I get what you're wanting to say, but it's not applicable in this situation.
