    server interruptions, 19h

    No battle results for battles.... Snowflakes still attached... No battle rewards...

    Server down??

    Now nobody gets the PR - not enough gaming time left.

    About Tier x snowflakes

    Gosh, these Tier 10 rewards are dismal. 5 ordinary cammos? Probably most players invest more than that in playing the game to get the container - e.g. cammo, signals, premium consumables.

    Whats the purpose of this? Credit farming?!

    Very common, apparently. My mother-in-law's cat yanked my USB keyboard connection out, just after I'd W-W-W'd from the spawn. By the time I'd replugged and rebooted, my ship was on its last HP in the enemy spawn. I apologised to both teams, explaining what had happened. Four players responded that they'd also suffered "cat sabotage" in games - and a fifth mentioned that he was playing the current game with three kittens fighting over his keyboard & monitor!

    again with the Christmas gamble boxes.

    I'm a bit disturbed that even a Mega box may only contain 5 cammos. OK, those particular cammos might have high bonuses, but they are only single-use cammos (and mounting one practically ensures a disastrous game!). I'm guessing that those Mega boxes will cost roughly the equivalent of the doubloon prize option - 2,000 doubs.

    again with the Christmas gamble boxes.

    Funnily enough, the counter argument to the "Star Trek Economy" is prompted by the very scene where Picard says something along the lines of "we don't use money any more, etc". In that scene, Picard's stateroom is decorated with what one presumes are antique artefacts - including a model of the sailing warship Enterprise. So Picard has possession of that model. What, then, happens if someone else covets that model? How do they agree or disagree about who gets it. What if hundreds of people want it? In our society, a desirable object acquires a market value, and changes hand at an agreed price. Star Trek, by contrast, presumably occurs in some sort of ultra-Marxist economy where nobody can own anything or buy anything, and objects (including food, clothes and living essentials) are assigned by some central authority which assumes total power over individuals and their desires - something not mentioned in ST lore.

    Looking for a premium British light cruiser to buy

    Just merge the Commonwealth and RN lines. RN gets premium CA (and two DDs), Commonwealth gets access to BBs, CVs and plenty of Captain training opportunities. Future RN premiums can be double-skinned and sold twice (a la Boise/ Neuevo whatsit) to reflect the numerous UK-Dominion transfers. Win-win for players, win-win($$) for WG

    Armoury coupons expiring

    I play mine in Co-op, where its enormous fun as a close range brawler - given that the bots yolo and everything is over in about three minutes. To give the bots a chance (and to ensure that i finish the games in credit) I play without cammo, signals or premium consumables.

    Armoury coupons expiring

    Does anyone actually use the coupons for signals and cammo? Both seem absurdly expensive in the Armoury (e.g. c.100k credits for one India Yankee), and IMHO at least, the coal and credits are best used elsewhere. I pass on the "upgrades" as well, since 17k coal is best saved for a nice ship.

    What did your Black Friday 2019 premium containers drop?

    9x 250g armoury versions (EU, NA, RU accounts): - cammo & FXP 10x Premium bought (EU): - cammo, 1250g Yay, some ludicrously over-priced cammos to add to the 10,000 or so I already have...! Actually, I threw away my money not only knowing in advance that the outcome would be garbage, but with the altruistic motive that my inevitable loss would boost the % chance ship drop rate for the rest of you.

    What did your Black Friday 2019 premium containers drop?

    Me too. I don't see any BF containers for sale on any of the servers under any of my account names.
  12. Well, I got the Hellcat and 30-odd crates. Eight years! Actually its nine+, if I count my original WoT Beta account on RU. Trouble is, even as a former veteran WoT player, I now longer recognise much of the game - many new features I just do not have a clue about (bonds, special equipment, blueprints, training manuals, boosters, etc), to say nothing of all the OP event/ reward tanks dominating the games. I do drop into WoT from time to time (not so much since WG got greedy and ended the unified premium), but its very difficult to get back into if you haven't played for a while. I usually warm up in Tier 5, but even that has turned into 3 minutes of run-and-gun roflstomp by one side or the other. Not much resemblance to tank warfare any more.

    Poltava in the shop

    Well, first two that I have encountered both got insta-deleted - by bots in co-op. I guess those players were somewhere below 40%WR, so not fair to blame the ship. p.s. is it just me, or do the turrets look absurdly big and out of proportion to the ship?

    About Puerto Rico

    I did wonder if WG had thought that through. At least on the PTS version, its clear that you need to dump your doubloons in the first minutes of the patch in order to get maximum benefit. I wonder if the servers can even process all the projected transactions in the first few minutes?

    Poltava in the shop

    I was actually wondering if we were going to get a few meh-boats released in the run up to Christmas, so that WG had something to pad out the Christmas boxes with. After all, probably a lot of players by now already have most of the performance-proven premiums, so would be in line for large doubloon drops as compensation.
