    Detectability Penalty Change in 0.8.0

    The public test ran in a very busy ingame period with the grindy PEF Missions, Snowflakes, Campaign, Steel missions, CB ending and Ranked. I don't think it's really surprising to see less feedback than usual? Edit: another thing: since you're making an effort in improving communication with the player base with the Dev blog (and I applaud you for this, really) couldn't we get a note about this change in advance? as I wrote yesterday in the thread, I didn't even update the public test because the changes were more or less written everywhere. CV's, Khron and Musashi removed, buffs to a lot of ships. And even if people noticed, it wouldn't be the first case where there was a reversion to older mechanics on the public test and it would be fixed for the live release. Instead we had to wait for the official patch notes to find out.

    Detectability Penalty Change in 0.8.0

    Not only that. I've skipped 0.8 PTS completely because of the ingame missions, and I can imagine a lot of players did the same. Plus, we mostly knew the changes of the patch so there wasn't really a special need to test it.

    Azuma 're-balanced' to Tier 9

    I would have liked to see Azuma at tier X, just to have more options for CB's cruisers. I think we have enough premium tier ships at tier IX already to be honest.

    Detectability Penalty Change in 0.8.0

    Considering that this "bug" was noticed immediately and well received by the player population, I really don't get why remove it now, immediately after a CB season that made a lot of noise and immediately before a high-tier ranked season. The mechanic was changed half a year ago, and I don't think I've ever heard any of my clan mates complaining about it. In my opinion this is a step back.

    1st Anniversary? Thanks , but not really...

    I got that as well. After another game I got a -30% coupon for the store. Weird...

    If I can offer a couple of counterpoints... If this release was an experiment to serve as a shortcut for the players that "continually support the game by using the premium shop" a personal offer catered to that portion of the player population would have sufficed. If instead it's to test the demand of such a ship for the general population, can we expect it to be a timed offer and not a permanent one? Allow me to have doubts on this solution being the "best of both worlds both for our audience and for us". I'll write more below. As for the "We currently also do not have any plans to sell tier X ships directly"... I assume you realize that this line, combined with the ones we heard in the past, now sounds completely hollow? Letting inexperienced players enter high tier battles it's indeed a valid concern. One you're barely starting to address now with videos that explain the mechanics (Which I applaud you for, but it's still early to see if they will have an effect). While this ship won't change anything, it keeps adding to the already existing problem. Of course players can perform poorly after thousand of battles. But for a player that's striving to improve, ending up in a game with multiple high tier premium ships with inexperienced players at the helm that make the game impossible to win is incredibly frustrating. Way more so than an inexperienced player on a silver ship, since they paid their way through. And the more high tier options available for those kind of players, the worse it gets. Again: this is not an issue of effectiveness of the ship in the hands of a newbie. It's about moving the bar a little bit higher. It wasn't a promise, but I think that most of us assumed the situation would stay the same. Tier IX premium ships available on the Arsenal for free exp/coal as long-term rewards were a good compromise as far as I'm concerned. There were still players converting free exp with cash from their existing ships, but it still needed a certain amount of effort in the game and avoided complete newbies getting a tier IX premium immediately. Now it's not the case anymore.

    Jean Bart – a Tier 9 in the Premium Shop?

    Ahhhh! NOW I really feel that Christmas is coming. Jokes aside, I can only say that in my opinion it's a bad idea. The argument "We're not selling tier IX's" was already a thin one considering that you could convert free exp with cash... but now it's a full blown sale, and this sets a precedent for all WG games as well. Still, as usual: this wouldn't be an issue.. if only players that have unlocked a ship of that tier could buy it. Since we know it's not the case...

    [SCRUB] The Scrubs - Recruitment thingy

    You think we're going to have enough players online at 14.30 to try CB on the Asia Timezone?

    [SCRUB] The Scrubs - Recruitment thingy

    I left my Zao in CB configuration anyway. So, are we playing today? ASIA timezone or RU?

    [SCRUB] The Scrubs - Recruitment thingy

    Why not? if we can find a decent timezone we should manage easily. Edit: The RU timezone should work fine. We should manage to get 5 online in that timeslot I think.
  13. Still zero from the regular containers for me unfortunately.

    Poll: How many UK DD missions did you get?

    Zero after the second week of containers.
  15. Nothing so far unfortunately. I hope I'll manage to get at least one before the event ends..
