    Black Friday Missions, 50k BASE XP

    Funny that ya`ll have bigger issues with the 50k Base Xp but no bit with the 50k Free Xp before it. Since free Xp is only 1/10th of the Base Xp i really wonder how ya`ll think as a no sweater O.o

    I this Possible, citadeled by Hindenburg

    Here are 2 things that might be a tad hard to spot when you don`t look for them, since you mentioned that you do not have the Dubloons. In the first Pic witht he skills, see where my mouse is hovering? IF you click on the Dubloons ( for me that would be 350 ) it will give you the choice to also spend, as before mentioned by other Players, Elite Captain XP which you gain little by little ( iirc 10% of the Captain XP per battle ) until you have 19 points on that Captaion. Then all Captain Xp will go directly into the Elite Captain XP 100%. In my second Screen you can see that you don`t need to dismount a module but can also sell it when you swap it out. You seel stuff for 50% of the price you have to pay for it. So it is a loss, but if you do not have the Dubloons or don`t want to spend them that is an alternative. If the german line is good can be argued, because thanks to their Turtleback Armor at mid to endtier they can teach you bad habbits, like " i can drive broadside cause i ain`t gettin` no Citas yeah baby" stuff. Whereas in US line you get very much punished ( as you felt ) for that. Also coming from a rather precise line like the US BBs the guns of the germans..... oh boy don`t want to know how many times i woken up my neighbors when i yelled again out of frustraion when shells went everywhere, and i really mean everywhere, except the ship i was aiming at @ 6-7km. Personally my advice is take the Jap BB line. Faster, about same precision but equally squishy. If you go with German or UK you just don`t really learn to angle properly because neither punish you harsh enough for it. UK has subterrainain Citas and Germany Turtleback armor which makes it very unlikely to get a cita even broadside. Easy to pick up bad habbits which won`t help you at all in the US BB line. On the Captain skilling i would highly advise you to learn 1 skill from each level ( 1,2,3,4 ) and then spare for the 2nd 4th tier skill because the more skillpoints you have the more XP you need to get the next and it is simply much easier to not have a 2nd 2 point skill than not having CE and another important 4th tier skill. They are 4 points for a reason ( mostly ) so better to fill those out first before you take 2nd skills in the 1,2,3rd row. In regards to earning Credits without Prem play various lines see which ones you do good ( aka gain decent money ) in or around Tier 5. Those will be your credit farmers. FOr me it is the Kamikaze ( nonprem is the Minekaze Jap DD ) the New Mexico ( T6 ) and Fuso ( T6 jap BB ). I have fun with them and get decent results playing those. If you keep playing bad at higher tiers you will lose ALOT of credits per match and that will simply put you back further and further. I hope that helps you. EDIT: Don`t mind my Skills in the first pic it was ment for something else. IF you want to check your stats with each ship WG has provided you with an easy way to do so. https://worldofwarships.eu/de/community/accounts/554417679-FurthLover77/!/pvp/ships/?bestShip=colorado If you click on the Warships and scroll way down you find 4 clickable ( drop down ) for each Class. Battleships, Carrier, Cruiser and Destroyer. Click on Battleship and it will reveal all the BBs you drove so far. From most driven to least driven. If you click on them seperately you see your detailed stats for the ship. As an example you have a Main Battery precision with your Colorado is 19%.( it stands under Average score per battle as last point there ). Try to raise the Hitpercentage of your BBs to at least 27 to 30%. More is hard to get because of RNG but near 30% should be achievable and desireble.

    Stalingrad at KOTS?

    Did you? Because on the german Twitch i watched 4 games with long waiting times in between every game was won by the team with more Stalins. The last 2 games both teams even rejected to take a DD in favor of a Stalin. And only those 2 were somewhat even in the end.

    Stalingrad at KOTS?

    As an outsider to competitive play in WoWs i will say the following in regards to a tournament that was partly held a few weeks ago. Can`t remember when it was only that it was stoped late that day because it gotten too late for many Clans. Since alot of the "Top" Clans were involved in it, i consider it a good enough measure how to look at the Stalin. There are 9 T10 Cruisers. In that Tourney almost all Cruisers taken by all teams that i watched on the Twitch stream were Stalins. Occasionally one got swapped for a Wor or Mino or something else. But the rest were Stalins. That tells me something. If you got that many choices but end up with almost exclusively 1 ship then either it is Fracked up OP or all the others are fubar UP to it. You can pick your choice i go with the first. And that tells me something else: Watching games that are that horribly singular is boooooooooring. Why have such diversity when it all goes down the drain and you end up with 1 type of BB 1 type of CA and 1 type of DD in all matches? Sure the tactic will vary (sp?) but the ships still the same. So why even have 9 Cruisers at T10? I understand that Competitve is about min-maxing stuff, hell did i love my Nova Cat in MW4, but even there we had lots of alternatives with which we dropped. Unlike here. Same old, same old. And that imho will kill the fanbase in regards to watchers. Just my 2 cents.

    Fehler und Probleme mit 0.7.6

    Hatte gestern ein Spiel mit einer Haida ( neues Schiff ) im Gegnerteam. Jedes Mal wenn es in meinem Sichtefeld aufpoppte fror mein Sichtfeld ein. Kamera konnte nicht mehr bewegt werden, aber alles andere war noch machbar ( sofern man es denn sehen konnte ). Steuerung, schießen, all so was. Nur eben die Kamera blieb stramm an der Stelle fest. Einzige Möglichkeit, welche ich gefunden habe war zurück zu Win, dann mit Taskmanager über den Reiter Details WoWs Prozessstruktur Beenden. Da ich das bisher noch bei keinem anderen Schiff als der Haida hatte frage ich mich ob meine Dateien korrupt sein können oder ob da was an der Haida insgesamt fehlerhaft ist.

    Why KC won't collab WoWs, and what to learn from it

    It stands for Girls & Panzer. Since it`s debut it is been praised and became quite sought after. It is an Manga/Anime about Schoolgirls driving WW2 ( mostly ) Tanks as competitive Sport ( Like Highschool Football in the US ). WoT made a big Co-Op with the Producer incl. various Voiceovers of famous Characters and gotten a decent boost out of it.

    Why KC won't collab WoWs, and what to learn from it

    I quote from your earlier Post: "...as most don't even know those manga or, if they do, only are interested in the hentai pictures that can be found on the interwebz." You insinuate that every person who knows manga is only in it for the porn ( Hentai ). You directly prejudice those people. You disrespect their interest in it without asking. You totally disregard the broadness of Manga. Those are facts. What you posted is as i aforementioned that. Disrespectul, disregarding, discriminating, hateful. If you are unable to see the correlation between what i responded and what you wrote, there is none. Same crap different camouflage. Saying you dislike it, your opinion, is fine, doing the above isn`t. And now have fun on my ignore list.

    Why KC won't collab WoWs, and what to learn from it

    My my, aren`t we a weeeeeee bit prejudice? Better check that locker room of yours if all Boxes are still alive and kicking. May i ask if you also call all black people N_iggas or germans N_azi because, well you know, they are from Germany so they have to be...? If you have no [edited]clue what the [edited]you talk about, better inform your sorry [edited]first than to throw insults and blind accusations around mate. Back to Topic: 1. Because KC is too big to be bullied by WG into somerthing :) 2. Because AL isn`t yet and might actually think they could get a decent boost out of it. ( just like many people started out WoT after G&P entered the Co-Op ). 3. Nothing sadly, because in KC you don`t actually play ships but Girls, unlike ARP or HSF where you still had the ships commanded by characters. So to transform that over would you then play not a Bismarck ship but the Girl? How about the Hitzones? too many problems i`m afraid :/ POI

    the "carry harder!" thread

    Sometimes you lose. Sometimes the others win. And some times are just fubar. This game just [edited]hates me.

    Awesome changes to Shimakaze and Prinz Eugen

    No, i disagree on this. It does not reward aggressive play, but imho actually the opposite. What you will see is lots of dead Shima who got caught with their pants down. Good players may get rewarded, all others, the normal and not so good ones will just die. Only difference they die now 5,5km ( or 5,75km if the other number is correct, i do not twitter or facecrap so newest numbers elude me from there ) away from the enemy than 6,0km because they played aggressive. Shigata ga nai.

    Yeah looked the wrong line. I stand corrected on that, but i still stand by my thought that Torp Detection would benefit the Shima more.

    Awesome changes to Shimakaze and Prinz Eugen

    What does it matter how much range or Speed they have when you spot them 16 seconds before impact? Gives most BBs enough time to avoid all or only take 1 max. That`s why some would have prefered the lower Detection of the Torps. Outside of the DWT, the Torps of Gearing show up less than 10 secs before impact with still some 66kts speed and 16,5km range, mind you that`s only 1knt slower than the stock 12km Torps of the Shima. But with only 2/3rd of the reaction time. Personally i would have takent he detection range of Torps above the Ships Detection too. I got far bigger problems with ships avoiding them thanks to detecting them early than being detected by enemy DDs myself. Shigata ga nai

    T8 MatchMaking 55% TopTier (SubOctavian's recent comment)

    German saying: Traue keiner Statistik, die du nicht selbst gefälscht hast. Do not trust any statistic, that you didn`t cheated/changed/"mingled" ( good chance there is a better fitting word that i can`t think off ) yourself.
