  1. Nope, completely missing the point by a country mile. The point being made is NOT about having to "grind so hard" for something but rather about being able to choose how and when to do that grind. The amount of grind is the same but the time-gating is the issue. I have no issue with the devs putting in 4 hours of grind per week but making it 4 instances of 1 hour time-gated for our inconvenience means I have to try to find time to play when WG want me to play and not when I want to or find it convenient to play. Of course, these missions, by their very nature, are incentives to play. They incentivise the player base to attempt to complete them by offering tasty rewards. This means that if I want to complete the arc/mission/marathon/whatever I find myself in a position when I am forced to play at a atime when I should be doing something else with my life. This makes the game feel less fun-like and more work-like. Because WoWS has now taken on a work-like feel it actually disincentivises me to play at my previous level of "commitment". THIS is what is being said in this thread. Your interpretation was way off.

    CV Rework Beta Test - Feedback thread

    "Test our software" they said. "It'll be fun" they said. "Your software gives us a permanent, annoying error" "Deal with it B-)" they said.

    Ask not what your DDs can do for you but ask what you can do for your DDs.

    Yup, I had exactly the same reaction...

    It's amazing how people can have vastly different experiences within the same game. Every Jean Bart I have encountered has been played like total garbage with most of them just reversing away from their starting position and firing predominatly HE.

    Dear WG: Is there a future for FreeXP ships in WoWs?

    Is OK I misread your initial comment. At first I thought you were trolling about a Radar Reload Booster so decided to respond in kind. I guess next time I will open my eyes more fully when I get up for a smoke in the middle of the night.

    Would be totally underpowered unless she also had DefAA with zero cooldown.

    High tier dd gameplay

    Neither do we. I think @ForlornSailor's comment was a bit of a sarcastic dig at the developers for the change.

    Jean Bart - congratulations WG

    Idiots getting stuff wrong on the internet? Hardly a new thing. I imagine it is mostly the younger generation as these are ones who still think posting so-called "memes" is cool and original. Somebody should them the cat did had its cheezeburger decades ago.

    Jean Bart - congratulations WG

    The former advertises the presence of the ship in the premium shop for anyone who hasn't noticed, the latter did not and was, instead, critical of the choice to do so. Draw your own conclusions.

    So, no daily shipment today?

    So, it's definitely the "speshul" bit then.

    I genuinely feel for the guy, if I'm being honest, he is in a position that I would have had to walk away from a long time ago. From what I have seen he seems like a pretty decent bloke but the company he works for have made him weather ship-storm after ship-storm. Some small, some large - or to put another way he had to deal with everything from Sh1t squalls, to sh1t gales, through sh1t gales to sh1t typhoons and even sh1t hurricanes. The guy should have permanent purple tags.

    Jean Bart – a Tier 9 in the Premium Shop?

    Thanks for this, man, I needed the chuckle.

    Rhetorical question, I presume?

    Oh I totally get it. You have left me in no doubt whatsoever that it is, indeed, rain I can feel soaking my back. I guess we are just having unseasonably warm rain for this time of year.
