  1. Matchmaker Strike

    Some of my best games have been as bottom tier, it teaches you to play to your strengths (or at least is should, don't blame your team if you yolo). Conversely, some of my worst games have been as top tier.There is nothing worse than overconfidence. Besides as bottom tier you earn great XP for mediocre performance.
  2. Quitting due to full HP detonations.

    Has never bothered me, I save my det flags for ranked and clan wars. Statistically I only ever detonate every 125 games, I die to lol pens from random BB fire at 24k more often than I detonate. OP detonates every 81 games on average, hardly a major problem.
  3. Premium shop problems?

    last time this happended to me, I logged out then back in again, and found the items had arrived.
  4. Those games with 5+ dd's each side in my experience often boil down to entire caps filled with smoke and torps, zero spotting and the dd's complaining about a lack of support from the blind ships behind them. Still amazes me the amount of DD's that smoke the instant they are spotted and or as soon as they start capping even when not spotted.
  5. Regarding Balancing. My idea of truely balance MM? Max number of BB / DD per game = 3 If not enough cruisers in the queue increase by 1 BB and 1 DD until game is full. Tier split. If 3 tiers are present. 25% top tier 50% mid tier 25% bottom tier. Evenly split between classes as much as possible. If 2 tiers are present 50/50 split. I would have no problem waiting longer for a game for a more balanced match. No-one wants to be the only t8 CL/CA in a match dominated by 4/5 TX BB's.
  6. Stealth Kirov nerf?

    My standard response to this has always been, if the shells are in the air too long... its because you're not close enough to the target. I found the Kirov to be the low point on the whole line if I'm honest, and it wasn't that low, it just taught you how to play in a ship with a citadel the size of most DD's. On topic however, its unlikely that anything has changed, other than your perception. Reminder to self, buy a Molotov.
  7. Are you trying to say an event it HARDER in another region then EU? Be quiet, WG might hear you and decide we need steeper requirements in future!!!!
  8. Is it me or is there a typo in the last mission. IIRC it states place in top 5 and play 3 games. It really means place in top 5 and WIN 3 games.
  9. I've personally never understood it, if a game patches I want to know why the hell I can't play now... so I read the patch notes. I do agree however, on first login after a patch a what's new pop up / infomational screen would at least stop some of the OMG HAX threads. Personally, so far I like the changes, got caught out in my Edinborough once by it, however I can't complain, it actually seemed to encourage the BB to push into me. (Yes a BB pushing...)
  10. I don't think you can limit this to just BB's I've seen all classes played poorly, sometimes even all in the same game. The DD's who sail further from the caps than BB's (forgiving Trashcans to an extent but I'm seeing more and more Shimas doing this.) The CL/CA's who still don't know their torp ranges and fire them into caps that are being contested from 2nd / 3rd line. The CV's who still don't know how to strafe, or who's idea of spotting DD's is to just ping the map. Don't get me started on those who play as airfields and forget they can actually move. I have to admit I do enjoy a bit of bot bashing every now and then though, had have to agree, the BB's have sick beats...
  11. WoWs 2nd Anniversary Achievements List

    Same I've unlocked two already, should have the rest by end of the weekend tops
  12. WoWs 2nd Anniversary Achievements List

    Confirmation of event times (14th to 28th) and rewards per achievement being per 24hrs
  13. WoWs 2nd Anniversary Achievements List

    The when you look at the reward in game it specifies that it is only given once every 24h, just like some flags. The statement is misleading, it should read. " An achievement can be earned several times per day, but the reward will be issued only for the first time you earn this achievement each day!"
  14. Agreed used to be a huge problem in Navyfield, one person would not ready up and then jump around the starting possitions to make it very hard for the host to kick them from the room. Your afkers in WOWS are mostly those either running the game on slow machines and are literally loading after the game has begun, or are those who have crashed during load. Its nowhere near as bad as it was in the early days, where you practically needed an SSD to load before the game began, even on a decent rig.
