    Agincourt - How to get it?

    They gave you the perma camo to a ship you don't even have?!? Wow....

    Agincourt - How to get it?

    I actually got lucky after buying seven and hitting the open all at once button but if you didn't get it after 50 that is ludicrous. I already had the Konig Albert that might have increased my chances but 100% agree loot boxes for a T5 instead of just listing it at sale price is dispicable.

    Agincourt - How to get it?

    My understanding is you grind the event to get the new currency "Beast Tokens'", which you can then trade for "Battle of Jutland" loot boxes but only up to two of them, where you may or may not get a King Albert, an Agincourt or just some camo's. But don't quote me.

    Again appreciate the response but I'll go back to waving my cash at companies other than WG until they sell it properly. Honestly believe they go out of their way to antagonise people sometimes. Nice to see community still helpful though 👍

    Agincourt - How to get it?

    Appreciate the responses guys I see it won't be out until 10.4 and we are only on 10.3 now anyway so time to log off again. If it is hidden in loot boxes behind an event grind that will be unbelievably frustrating, the first thing I've seen I'm interested in in ages and they restrict access that way. Hope you are right Invicta but somehow think Klopirat is right it will be a "random" reward from a loot box after a grindy event that would be suitably Wargaming. I only want to play this game for a couple of hours a week but am interested in early dreadnought era ships and anything stacked with secondary guns. They've nerfed German BB's to the point of ridicule so a low tier British BB with mad secondaries looks great. WG give it as a event reward sure but for those of us more casual who don't have the time for gods sake just sell the bloody thing as well I have zero interest in giant apes on my bl@@dy ship or ridiculous time sinks I just want a ship to go pew pew at mid tier. You've gone 18 months without my cash quite happy to keep that going if you are going to play silly b@ggers. Do appreciate the responses guys!

    Agincourt - How to get it?

    Very long time WG supporter here who for the last couple of years hasn't really played after the PR disaster and numerous other things that peeved me to do with German ships, CV's etc Just saw a review today for the British BB Agincourt that had me think might be time to try it out again however I see it's not in the shop. What is the TLDR version of how to get the Agincourt or is it locked behind some ridiculous 20 hour grind in which case forget it.

    Aim point changed

    Not a new player but been away for a while just loaded update 10.0 and my aim point seems to have changed? Always used to aim at the little ^ section and the horizontal bar used to be at the waterline or broadsiding ships. Now I actually have to aim where the green circle is to show the gun is loaded if I aim at the ^ then the shot goes high and the horizontal bar is no longer at the water line of broadside ships. Any idea why this changed or what I can do about it?
  8. I looked up the word "shill" in the dictionary and there was just a link to @IEarlGreyTV funny that? Shame how a previously decent CC has sunk so low since taking the 40 pieces of silver.

    Lion is just utter Trash

    I've just got it so not much experience yet but the few games I have played I think I'm so relieved to be out of the Monarch I thought it was OK.
  10. As a playerbase this is so easily fixed. For the rest of this month and the whole of January don't spend any money on WG, none no ships (despite discounts), no premium, no signals NOTHING. The only way to make them pay any attention is to hit their bottom line as they have made it perfectly clear they are here for the money, stop giving them money and they'll never pull this BS again.

    How do YOU guys play Gneisenau ?

    ^ This Just finished watching Shipstorm a 3 x 3 tournament on Flamu's stream EU vs NA, "Omega" for the EU took a Gneisenau "Smolensk Is Fine" took a Sinop. Final battle came down to SIF's Sinop pushing around an island 10Km away from the Gneisenau, trying to sneak up on a cruiser. However the Gneisenau intercepted and torped him to oblivion. Like I say YMMV but i rate the Gneisenau and if competitive teams play it in tournaments it definitely has it's place.

    Please don't buy the Puerto Rico

    Now that's an idea I can get behind. I was taking a break from the game when the Missouri came out and now feel I am at a disadvantage to everyone else when it comes to grinding credits, if I could do a 6 month campaign at the end of which I could get the ship by paying the same amount of resources it was originally on sale for I'd be happy. It'll never happen as rare ships are WG's cash cow. Just look at Type 59's in WoT whenever they came up for limited times the playerbase went crazy.
  13. No sooner said than done, please vote responsibly!
  14. Actually it is true. If you buys the ship it is circa 200 euros.... 200 euros for a pixel ship.... in what possible world is that normal. Are you seriously justifying paying 80 euros for a ship and then doing a grind as well? For that price I could buy two entire new games not just one pixel ship, this is not normal and should not be treated as such. I'm not cheap I am still on my years worth of premium, I have 29 premium ships god knows how many premium tanks and have invested hundreds and hundreds of pounds into wargaming's coffers over my eight years of supporting them but this is a step too far for me. I will certainly not be supporting them financially this festive period I'll be buying another game for fun and just grinding snowflakes in here this year.
  15. or am I reading something different? Yes you are really lets look at the facts: 1) It was advertised as being available for free for the majority of players 2) CC's were pressured to publicise the event and given misleading information on the test server about how easy it would be to achieve 3) The decision was clearly made to make the grind impossible for the vast majority of players (I don't know anyone planning on grinding this for free or indeed at all) 4) The total cost of what looks to be an average pixel ship is reprehensible up to 240 euros?!?!!?? You make Trump look like Mother Theresa in comparison 5) You go live without announcing the changes to be made or giving the CC's the chance to update the information they put out on your behalf? 6) You act surprised at the backlash?!? 7) Your servers didn't work on the day of release 8) You now go back and re-edit old posts to more correct wording to cover up your tracks? What I find amazing is that someone using the picture of Cpt Obvious is defending what is clearly an effort from a large company to mislead their customers and extract as much money as possible in a very devious manner.
